Liz! How good blogging is great for search engine ranking

Google "Liz".  Just "Liz".  (Click here to do it.)

Who do you see?  Liz Claiborne, Liz Hurley, Liz Taylor? Sure.

But a whole lot of those top 10 results are Liz Strauss, blogger goddess

Liz is a good blogger, but more important is that she has tons of fans who link to her regularly.  It makes her not just a blogging star, but a Google star too.  I guarantee that a lot of marketers are paying megabucks to get the same level of search engine visibility. 

Lesson:  Blogging is your #1 search engine optimization tool.  It will easily justify the time/cost of one person writing one interesting paragraph each day.

P.S. Google "word of mouth marketing" — I get more than my share of pages too.

    Hi Andy!
    What fun it was to get up this morning to see this post! Too funny! Who would have thought that just over a year or so of blogging could have had such results, but that’s what happened for me.
    Some SEO is just showing up. :)
