The Ups and Downs of Search Engine Marketing to Me on Google

Once upon a time, if you searched 'Marketingtome' or 'Marketing to me', this blog was your top result on Google. I say once upon a time, because I did that search about a month or so ago and the results held true. While I was helping to set up the Silicon Valley Fashionista blog, we were talking about search and the Fashionista pointed out that Marketing to Me was unfashionably gone from the top results of a Google search.

Gone Like Wii at Christmas
Sure enough, a couple of quick searches proved just how difficult it's become to find this blog (and other Blogspot results for that matter). When you deal with Search Engine Marketing, this kind of frustration isn't uncommon, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating.

If you've just started seeing some strange results, let me know if you have any insights. If you're doing optimization, two words... Good Luck. And if you're at Google, feel free to include your insight into why 'Marketingtom' and 'Marketingme' outperform Marketing to Me with my request for an interview. Hell, I'd settle for a Google Its It and my blog showing up in the search results, but you don't get through any doors without trying.

Business organizations have to realize the fact that many people just click away to some other website, because the website they are looking at is not professional looking or is not interesting enough. Only a well designed website can serve the purpose of its existence.
Once the website is designed up to the mark, then comes the role of SEO because a well designed website won’t serve it’s purpose until and unless it has a good search ranking. Globally India is the most sort after for such solutions. There are many companies in India that provide solutions for web designing ecommerce and website seo development and in their race of being the best Virtual Studio is leading the way.

I am so glad to know about the ups and downs of search engine marketing to you on Google. It was one of the best case studies I have ever read because even I am struggling to get high position in organic search results Google. Was recently thinking to hire the best seo consultant Los Angeles team.
