I was on google for a day. It was a glorious day. I was on the first page when you would search for Vail Ski Homes. Wow. I thought I had made it. I started counting the dollars as they were about to roll in. I went to sleep that night knowing I was on top of the world. What bad economy? It is snowing and I'm on the first page of google.
I woke up the next morning and went to the laptop to make sure it wasn't just a dream. Oh My God I was disappeared. No where to be seen. I couldn't even search for ourvailskihome.com. That didn't show up. Active rain showed up, but my personal blog was gone. The world came crashing down. I was nothing. I was no where. I thought I knew about seo....I didn't know squat.
So I did some research. I guess I didn't create the right kind of sitemap. I joined google webmaster tools and actually followed the directions. I bought software to create the optimum sitemap.xml. I submitted it to google. They accepted it. Now I wait.
Hopefully I'll be back on google soon. Hopefully the right buyer will search with the right terms and voila...happy days are here again.
Any other macintosh (iweb) created bloggers out there have similar experiences?
