    I've been a serious knowledge whore reading everything, every ebook, every expert everything I could get my hands on. And then I ignored 90% of it and applied the ideas that I had. I'm sharing them here.

    http://erielegends.ning.com/

    I launched the website about childhood stories I would hear on Halloween.

    1. I used google webmaster tools, I created a sitemap and used Google Analytics for the site.
    2. I created a facebook page talking about it, I emailed radio stations and local schools about the website that it was up.
    3. I was on page 3 of google the first month and then page 1 month 2.
    4. Earlier today I was number 1 for the site but and then the facebook page I just found was number 1. So they are both 1 and 2 are mine.

    What did I learn, Unique IP Addresses to your site do move it up the scale. People that spent actual money to be number 1 have emailed me and were not happy at all.

    Work smart and not hard, I joined a few other sites that talk about hometown stories and posted my link and exchanged stories with them but I didn't overlink, I just worked a little every month, not day or hour just month.

    But then again, I'm not trying to make money at all it was just to see if I could get it to move and move it did.

    Its not much to look at but its a real interesting flow of information that made it happen.

    I think he means by getting those unique ip's to his site from the beginning (schools and stuff) helped get him ranked higher.

    congrats, but for what keywords?

    erie legends ranks 7 and you're on a web 2.0 with that keyword
    in the URL & have only a few competitors in a niche that doesnt appear to
    be a money maker.

    good job, but hardly one to write here about.

    While some bhw members do not believe this is a big deal it was interesting to watch it move from page 3 to page 1. And yes, I have not made any money on this at all and that is why we are really all here.

    It was my first move into world of SEO.
