There is a very sensible, logical reason I don't have 2 million back links.....
I don't have one site or one industry I focus on. If I only had one site that I could put all my energy and all my time into, it would probably be killer... but as we say in this marketing business, our sites come last. That logical shouldn't be the case because we want to gain business because of our site. We want a kick*** site because it shows what we can do, but when you are focusing on everyone eles's site and you want them to be the best, your site falls to the bottom of the list.
Speaking of, I am a list MAKER! I HAVE to have lists. Whether it be for the day, the week or just for groceries I have to have a list for everything to keep me on track and on schedule. That's not a bad thing at all. I have drawn my husband in to buying his own notepad for client notes, time lines, to do lists and more. - Ok that was a tangent... guess that's the frame of mind I am in tonight... trying to focus on not only my lists but blogging, content and writing....
I keep ActiveRain up pretty much all day yet I don't have time to write on it. I really don't have much time to even comment but I do watch it. If there is something I find interesting I will comment and many times it prompts me to write a new blog post. I have about 20 blogs in draft mode because I don't want to loose the thought but I also don't have the time to actually write them out intelligently.
I especially watch the homepage of ActiveRain. I see what others are finding feature worthy and although I do want my articles posted there it's always the ones that I dont' feel are feature worth. I wrote a blog a while back about writers block. It was really off the cuff and impulsive and it got featured. I have written ones I wish were featured since then and they have not. Such as IF Monthly SEO Service is a Bad Idea? I realize it doesn't matter how many people suggest the thing, if the AR gods feel it's not feature worthy, it simply won't be. Not to say our 5 suggests a day are in vain but that it's not ultimately up to us who is front and center.
But I really LOVE working FOR my clients, not necessarily FOR ME. Although of course it's my job and I really do love what I do but I focus more on them then on me. Ok, you are probably saying, then why do you bother blogging? And I have to say, it's a release, a vent, a spilling out of my own words because I have written for others all day long. I love to have a spot where I can be me, share any little nonsense of my life and share how I really feel.
So I am not the top back linker on here... I think we all can guess who that might be. And I don't have that fancy of a website. (stay tuned though, it's coming) But I have clients that have killer sites with top content that rank very well. I would rather they rank well than me, if that makes any sense. I am happy for my clients when they get leads, visits and higher rankers than before we started. That's what it's all about for me.
