Does Google Actually Rank DavidFreels.com As The #1 Atlanta Copywriter In A Google Search For "Atlanta Copywriter?" No. Thu, Mar 13 2014, 12:30 Atlanta copywriter, Atlanta seo, freelance copywriter, seo Permalink This AdBlog is an observation of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Is David Freels actually Google's highest ranking Atlanta Copywriter ? No. That honor consistently goes to Jenny Munn at JennyMunn.com . I'm actually around #25 , and even then that ranking doesn't come from DavidFreels.com but instead from a video compilation of my television commercials found on my YouTube channel at YouTube.com/DavidFreelsWriter . DavidFreels.com actually ranks even lower than my YouTube channel , usually between #35 and #40. Then why does the screenshot above make it look like DavidFreels.com is the top result after googling the keywords "Atlanta copywriter?" What makes this search result false? Here's the secret. There are two things going on here. 1. Google now keeps track of as much of your web activity as possible. That's why you'll see paid ads for the topic of previous searches in your next 15 or 20 search results. 2. My AdBlog is set up so it's immediately indexed by Google anytime there's any kind of change, like a new post . Since Google immediately indexes my blog, and my site home page is titled Atlanta Copywriter David Freels , Google knows I have already expressed an interest in the site of Atlanta copywriter DavidFreels.com . If I then google "Atlanta copywriter" immediately after I make an AdBlog post, Google automatically ranks DavidFreels.com as its highest result--for me--even though DavidFreels.com isn't really ranked highest by Google in a search for "Atlanta copywriter." I'm bringing attention to this because a lot of people these days claim to be copywriters who've never written or produced a Print ad , TV spot , or a Radio commercial . They may never have actually created any sort of marketing communications in the "traditional" sense. Instead, many of these folks specialize in SEO, which is fine--as SEO work is technically "marketing communications" which requires the use of words, and marketing communications words are written by a "copywriter." But there are ways to game the system, and this AdbBlog is a case in point. If you're hiring a copywriter just for SEO, you could be shortchanging yourself. As demonstrated here, there are ways to take advantage of the way Google and other search engines work that might make you think you got huge results from buying SEO services, when you may not really be getting anything beyond what Google thinks is something you've already expressed an interest in. To better understand what your actual ranking is, use a Mozilla browser like FireFox to see the results of your keyword searches. FireFox does not cache previous searches. Every search is "clean," which means Google can't track your previous searches to determine what you're interested in. For example, when I Google "Atlanta copywriter" in FireFox after I post to my Adblog, the ranking of DavidFreels.com usually shows up between #20 and #30, which is not bad (though not great) considering Google yields 690,000 results for that search. However, after this Adblog , I wouldn't be surprised if I showed up in Google's Top 10 -- even in FireFox . I'll explain the how and why of that in my next Adblog . Bottom line, if you're looking for real results from a real Atlanta copywriter , please call , text , or email me . I'll always shoot straight with you, and always give you honest results.
