Yes, I am setting up yet another blog and I am recording every little thing so that you can literally look over my shoulder and see how I set these WordPress blogs up.
Now, most of you that have been following me through the years know that I prefer to setup a WP blog over a regular HTML type of website and I mainly do this because I firmly believe that Google will give more attention and more love to a blog site than a regular non-blog type of site.
I don’t know, but…
…I have ALWAYS been able to rank well with blogs with just a little bit of effort.
The How to Work At Home Blog
OK, so now to get on with the show…
I have purchased a new domain name, http://howtoworkathome.net – and Exact Match Domain name or EMD – and I am going to try very hard to rank this site specifically for the keyphrase…yes, you guessed it How to Work at Home.
In the old days, sending this site to the number one position would have been a no-brainer and very, very easy to do.
With the infamous Google updates, changes to their algorithms, having an EMD does not guarantee you such a prestigious spot on the SERP’s and that is OK.
Google, like all search engines is trying to ensure that the results people receive from their site when searching for a key phrase or keyword is the most relevant available.
This means that sites that have exact matched domains that were once on top of the heap may not be now if they do not contain relevant content.
While this makes our jobs as marketers a little bit tougher, I don’t care, I like what Google is attempting to regulate here.
Create valuable content for your niche audience. Don’t create junk!
Anyway, here is a video that I have created just to give you an idea of what is happening over there with the how to work at home blog.
See you at the top!
