Well that was an interesting call as I was educating a seller on how I market their listings and when I mentioned how I have a powerful secret tool I use to showcase my listings in Google. Well that was immediately challenge as he wanted to see it in action... SO I told him I would write up a new post on his listing and I could get it in the top 10 within 30-60 minutes... (uh I was starting to get nervous now that I put the details up to the test)
Well back into Active Rain I went, wrote my post (from all the learning I have done over the last several months, including the blogging classes at Active Rain University), created my keywords added my photo and links then submitted it to our Active Rain world.
Well just for kicks I went to Google right away and I was stuptified to notice I was not number 10, nor 9, nor 8, nor 7, nor 6 (you get the drift!), nor 3, nor 2 but I was number 1 with a three word search term! Oh and as for the time, IT WAS IN LESS THAN 1 MINUTE!
I know the seller will be amazed, but it even baffled me that it went into the system SO QUICKLY!
So I stand behind Active Rain and its "Google Juice" all day long....especially if it helps me Win a (friendly) challenge with a seller! In other words it really was a "Win-Win" for both of us!
Oh and Thank You Active Rain!
