Who else is tired of the Winter weather? If you live anywhere near me (east), then you’re probably also over all this snow and cold that just continues to dump on us every day. We were watching the news and they mentioned that at this time last year it was 70 degrees outside! Can you believe that? I don’t need it to be 70, but I would like it be just a little more spring-like.
This weekend we’ll be getting things ready for Easter and taking our daughter out for her birthday. I also plan to start reading my new book, The A to Z of Saving Money. This is a new ebook collaboration among several personal finance bloggers, and I’ve been looking forward to reading it for a while. If you’d like to enter a contest for your chance to win a copy plus $250, then follow the link at the bottom.
Even though we just had a niche site update, I can tell you that things are starting to turn around. Due to some recent changes, my iravs401kcentral.com site appears to now be “out of the sandbox” and is hovering around on the third page of Google (between spots 20 and 30). It looks like I’m back in the game! I’ll continue to push on ahead and do another full niche update in a few weeks.
Now that I’m learning so much about Google and how to rank, I’m going to start applying some of the same secret recipes to My Money Design. In particular, I’ve got one page ear-marked that I would really like to focus on. So I will be desperately trying to improve the rank of that page as much as possible and see if I can use it to improve my income opportunities (like we were talking about last week).
Sorry, but I’ll keep the identity of this page hidden so as not to jade the experiment. But I do plan to do a post about it if I am successful.
Getting an internal page to rank is something I consider to be slightly more tricky since you can’t really use a lot of the same methods. But it’s a good quality content page and I’d like to see it on page 1 of Google, so here I go!
