Compound effort & Google
The good news about Google is that it rewards hard workers. That’s good news for all the genuine marketers, startups and bloggers out there
I decided that startup blog might be a good name, given it was all about – yep start ups and entrepreneurship. But unbeknownst to me the inexperienced blogger there was already a zillion blogs with this title, or one very similar. The dot come was long gone.
I didn’t even exist in Google… I was more than 20 pages deep. I was also blogging to about 3 friends and my mother. I never did any marketing of my blog, just registered it on technorati. That’s it.
Now after consisting writing, sharing my ideas, almost 500 posts and providing some reasonable insights, this blog is clear number one on Google. Just type in any permutations of the words start up blog and you’ll see. I also have over 20,000 readers a month now.
Word of mouth is slow, but effort equals reward.
