Posted on July 18, 2009

We wrote a news story about an SEO myth or reality, and within twenty minutes the post had been indexed and we ranking on the first page of for a search on SEO. This front page ranking then moved from position #4, to position #1 within ten minutes, gaining huge amounts of traffic for a highly competitive keyword.

Of course, the front page listing was fleeting and had retired to the Google News section after a few hours, but the links garnered from having the front page listing for ‘SEO’ and the traffic received made the brief spell in the spotlight more than worthwhile.
