Update: Top 10 Rankings in under 2 weeks with 1 link

Client Successes, Natural Search Engine Optimization, seo on July 8th, 2008 3 Comments

It’s been one month since I originally wrote about our client, Creating Effective Organization, and how their new website received top ten rankings in under 2 weeks. I thought I would revisit the subject and check their rankings a month later.

Not much has changed in the past month. The title tags and the descriptions are still the global setup we implemented when the site went live and little to no content has changed since launch date as well. So, it’s no surprise that that a couple of our rankings have slipped a few spots. The content is slowly starting to get stale and I suspect the duplicate titles and descriptions will have a greater impact in the coming month.

However we can no longer say the site has only one link from our blog. We did release one article through a few article marketing websites and that has generated about a dozen links back to the site.

  • ceo skills development program – #1
  • skill development – #5
  • leadership skills development – #9
  • ceo lack of leadership – #11

  • ceo skills development program – #2
  • skill development – #7
  • leadership skills development – #7
  • leadership skill development – #1
  • ceo lack of leadership – #23
  • NEW! – small business coaching gym – #7

Are these the most competitive phrases? Not necessarily, but the traffic they are driving is more direct and average time on site is much higher than other sources of traffic. Conversion rate is ok, but definitely not where we want it to be – yet. Stay tuned for more updates in the future.

  1. Interesting post. So the first post mentioned that this new site had top ten ranking just from one link. That is pretty amazing that it can get that just from one link. Was the page linking to it a very high rank or lined page?

    It was linked on our blog homepage and the individual post page. So, really I guess we had two links going to it. At the time we wrote about it our blog was a PR3.
