This System Works Even Better When You Apply It To Real Websites
by: Jim Green
I posted an article recently on how a spoof website I set up temporarily grabbed 3217 email addresses in a matter of weeks.
I was testing out a new system that claims it can seduce the spiders to visit any website, and in the process of my experiment, the following also happened.
1. The site had an Alexa ranking of 198.
2. It had captured the No.1 Spot for the core keyword phrase on Google, Yahoo!, MSN, AOL, Lycos and Ask Jeeves.
3. My hosting service traffic stats reported 18,945 visitors.
So far so good on a spoof but was it a fluke?
There was only one way to find out and that was to assess the effectiveness of the technique in a real measurable marketing scenario.
Enthused by the results of the spoof I then applied the system to two of my real websites and you can check out for yourself what happened this time
o Go to www.bt.yahoo.com and enter how to products in the search box and you should find that http://howtoproducts-xl.com ranks at No.1 out of 1,850,000,000 competitive pages (yes, one billion, 850 million) as it does as I write this on October 20th 2005.
Both of the websites I tested out are well established and have always enjoyed high rankings in the major search engines but to achieve No.1 on Yahoo! out of 1 billion, 850 million pages is off-the-wall positioning.
Ive decided now on the basis of this quantifiable evidence of its efficiency to inject the system into all 21 of my websites - and Ill let you know how I go...
