Comments on: Keyword-Rich Domain Names Search Engine Optimisation Ireland Sat, 28 Mar 2015 19:06:42 +0100 hourly 1 By: Gavin Thu, 19 Oct 2006 08:08:48 +0000 Hi Richard,

I noticed that my own site is still ranking up there for some keywords. In saying that, I have did very little self promotion for the site except make a few comments on blogs and some forums.

After the Google update I thought the two sites would have suffered but I do suppose its early days until the dust settles.

For the allinanchor: command, I havent seen on heard anything about changes but I’ll play around and see.

I’m beginning to wonder if maybe it might escape any penalty by virtue of the fact that it has little or no off-site promotion.

It makes sense for Google to rank a domain for the search ‘power washing ireland’.

That said, a search for ‘ireland seo marketing’ places you at #2 behind

I think this is a good test subject to keep an eye on. I’ll shoot you a mail if the target site is sandboxed/penalised.

Another issue I am beginning to worry about is the possible divergence between an allinanchor: search and future SERP positions. It used to be a good indicator of future SERP but I am wondering if this is changing?

Best rgds


By: Gavin Wed, 18 Oct 2006 22:41:01 +0000 Richard you still watching that site? I was just wondering if you had seen how long a new site would last at top until the big G drop?

As for my targeting, I wasn’t purposely aiming for SEO Ireland Marketing and I don’t even know why I bought the domain but now I have it I may as well join in the race.

I presume your targeting “seo marketing ireland”?

Well the good news is that once you are trusted you are probably going to rank quite well

Doh, just noticed who’s one place ahead of you :)

[I'm not too sure how much I'm trusting any advanced Google operators at the moment - everything seems to be broken the last few days. I'm hoping I can still rely on this allinanchor search]

By: Gavin Fri, 06 Oct 2006 16:10:00 +0000 This will be interesting to watch Richard and its something I am also keeping an eye on with my own site, its already getting a boost with some keywords but for how long?

Maybe I’ll have to update my post Using Keywords In Domain Names
if the results of these two sites show the filter in action.

For example search on Google for: google visit Ireland – I am sitting at #2..hhhmm wonders who is #1 :-)

OK its a lame example but I wanted to show how we are both ranking for that term, lol.
