#2 OUT OF 51 MILLION? DIDN'T KNOW THE RISE WOULD BE SO QUICK AND FEEL SO GOOD!
I just had to share this with the ActiveRain community so you can see the POWER of blogging and keywords. I responded to the ActiveRain's Fourth of July Hyper Local Challenge and really only responded for the free 1,000 points. The challenge was to write about a Local 4th of July event and use keywords in the blog. Sounded easy enough. I hurried and wrote my blog post on the annual 4th of July Firework display held on South Beach. I posted the blog at 11:13 am yesterday (7/3/10) and found out that the blog was in the #2 position for the keyword "4th of July South Beach". This was pretty remarkable considering that it was placing #2 out of over 51 Million results! This challenge has shown me alot concerning the power of the internet, proper keyword placement, keeping it LOCAL, and using ActiveRain as the catalyst! Can you imagine how I will now use this newfound information and demonstration towards my mortgage marketing? There are REAL FIREWORKS now going off in my mind. Enjoy the 4th!
