An Experiment In SEO

August 4, 2016

I put up this blog today and I'm going to see how high I can climb up the Google mountain. The search terms that I will be focusing on are "web design honolulu," "web development honolulu," and "seo honolulu." Hopefully these are terms that could lead to some business. I do that sort of work. Unfortunately, at this point, this website wouldn't even show up on the 100th page of google results.

The domain name of this website is murwell.com. No honoluluwebdesign.com or honoluluseo.com. I figure if it's good enough for Amazon and Google to have names unrelated to their business, it's good enough for me.

I also happen to notice that neither honoluluwebdesign.com nor honoluluseo.com are doing particularly well in Hawaii. One redirects you to a website that is pushing "advertising that works" and the other has a posting from July 2011 that links the user to a website that's up for sale. Maybe it goes back to using generic name. Who wants to use search.com when one can google? I didn't even know there was a search.com, but I could only imagine what the domain owner paid for the name.

No generic domain name for me. Murwell.com. It's also this company in this book I wrote and I had the domain name laying around collecting dust. By the way if you want to read a great book, take a look at Sympile Weiser.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to get my website up in the ratings? Leave a comment below.
