Get Adam Arnold to the top of Google

09 Apr: update footer text in all sites (smarter and otherwise)

12 Apr: has stormed onto the first page of SERPs for anyone searching ‘Adam Arnold’ in Yahoo, MSN or Live.
12 Apr: still sits on page 5 for anyone Googling ‘Adam Arnold’. I can only assume, therefore, Google places a lower value on incoming links than Yahoo, MSN and Live search engines.
14 Apr: I noticed that entries £50K if you can find Mayfair (McDonalds Monopoly 2009) & £50K if you can find Mayfair (McDonalds Monopoly 2009) were indexed by Google within 30 minutes of being posted, which put in the top 3 spots for searches on M920 Park Lane and M921 Mayfair, two cards in the latest McDonalds Monopoly game. Taking this information in conjunction with the Yahoo/MSN/Live vs Google search results I’m going to change my tact slightly.

15 Apr: It seems as though Google bots actively trawl the site however as yet the engine itself doesn’t perceive there to be much content relevant to “Adam Arnold” searches. Clearly, backlinks aren’t an appropriate way to change this. All links posted in my previous test contained ‘Adam Arnold’ and linked to my profile page, so there are no issues with them being deemed irrelevant in terms of content or destination.

4th May: Success! It’s not quite the post/page I was after, but as of today if you pop “Adam Arnold” into a Google search you’ll see one of my most recent Twitter updates in 10th spot. I’ve not done anything new in the way of seo for the past month, so it does go to show my existing techniques are working. In particular, the Twitter feed updates are performing well.
