What's going on ?
Well, I just tested the SEO contest "globalwarming awareness2007", just to see where this page could rank.
And finally, this page doesn't rank at all (for now) :p
But the french page (../../globalwarming-awareness2007.html, the main page in fact, from now on it will redirect here) did it better ; if I'm not mistaken (I trust my memory) :
It's not really good, but I think it's not too bad since :
- first page on Yahoo! the first weeks...
- ... then around the spot 50 ...
- ... and now I don't know where it is now on Yahoo! ^^
- ~50 on MSN and now it's in outerspace
- still in top 100 on Google
- still in the first pages on google.fr, yahoo.fr & msn.fr
- the page (we are speaking about http://chanstarwars.free.fr/globalwarming-awareness2007.html, remember ?) was almost-empty, done in 5 minutes. Really :D, I spent more time writing this one \o/.
- the page was in french, hosted in France, so it's not a really goodpoint for a contest where the keywords used are english (or look like english words, especially "globalwarming"), and where the search engine versions used for the scores are the US/English ones.
I think I should have started with an english-speaking page for better results (actually I started with a lonely french page, then a month later I linked an english translation by Google on http://chanstarwars.free.fr/globalwarming-awareness2007/english/ - yea, the page you are viewing now, I changed it).
But despite this obstacle, some french pages did it well, like fred's which squat the first spots on Yahoo! =) (at least when I was writing this text).
- the page was static (not updated at all)
- the page did contain the keywords "globalwarming awareness2007" ("globalwarming", "awareness2007", and even "global warming", "awareness", and "2007"), but was not talking about global warming : no related terms, so... Maybe this factor count, I really don't know (because the keyword phrase "globalwarming awareness2007" is kind of new).
- I didn't try to have backlinks. In fact, I link the page on my websites, I add it on a few directory/comments/digg, I earn some backlinks by french sites, and that's almost all (no internal links, no huge-BL-on-your-face, no massive linking, etc...).
By the way, I want to thank the FrenchTraskForce and the french seo (or not :p) who have made a link to me : it's quite nice :).
- I made an unindexed absolutely useless blog (stupid, but at least I discovered blogger :d)
- well, I didn't mean to win the gwa2007 contest (the page was not eligible btw, although I could have used some tricks...)
- 10/03 : 80 on google & 150 on yahoo
- 16/03 : ~90 on google, ~140 on yahoo, & ~70 on msn ("wouah" :p)
- 20/03 : ~50 on google (woot), ~170 on yahoo, & ~2xx (:\) on msn
- 20/03 : ~80 on google , ~70 on yahoo, & ~2xx on msn
- > 20/03 : redirection to http://globalwarming-awareness2007.brutalwoods.net/
- 01/05 : results : 1/ inspecteur gadget 2/ the official ranking page 3&4/ some guys 5/ luckymonkey 6/ desperate housewives 7/ google powered 8/ theniceone 9/ .net FTW 10/ second level domain LOL
11/ the real one ;)
And what about globalwarming awareness2007 now ?
Well, like you see, I made a redirection from the french page (http://chanstarwars.free.fr/globalwarming-awareness2007.html) to this one (http://chanstarwars.free.fr/globalwarming-awareness2007/english/), and I did not link the old URL on chanstarwars.free.fr anymore.
In fact, this is now the second phase of the contest (aka "the serious things" ?) - the contest is running from January 15th, 2007 to May 1st, 2007 -, so this is the end for me : I did my little experiment, it was cool, I've learnt a few SEO tricks, well it's ok :).
Link me beautiful
And now it's time for THE LINKS ("fire"). So here are some cool globalwarming awareness2007-related websites. If you want YOUR page/website within this f*cking good list, and you are part of the FrenchTaskForce, simply ask me (as long as you think you have a chance to win the contest ; I mean, I don't want to link pages like mine :p).
Also, if you are a nice guy (or, er, better, a nice girl :d), I probably want to make a 301 redirection to your uber-cool website during the final countdown : don't mind to ask, really, the sooner the better.
In no particular order :
Everything goes at firstname.lastname@example.org (mail/jabber/gtalk/msn/yim/coffee).
Sorry for the bad english :o)
Sorry for the "fast-done-ugly-html-texteditor&hand powered-shit", I don't know if this page validate something (probably not :d), and I really don't mind :D.
