If you have been following my last two posts, you will know that I have been networking with the blog called Life in Greenland. As a result of this networking, I hinted that I would like the owner of this site to link to my site with “political blogging strategies” as my anchor text. He obliged my request, and it looks like this effort paid off.
Here is the most recent Google search for this phrase:
I have been optimizing my site for this phrase since the launch of this site, but as you can see, my efforts are really paying off. I am currently holding the top four positions on Google in the organic rankings. I guarantee you that everyone who searches for “political blogging strategies” will click on my site.
Now this was just an example for the purposes of this blog. I would love to coordinate keyword optimization strategies with anyone who has a political blog and is interested in doing so.
This is a very potent strategy for anyone who wants to own the narrative around a specific keyword phrase, and the more people that are networked together the more powerful they become.
It is worth noting that this networking has also led my post on Life in Greenland to be optimized for the phrase “leftwing environmentalism.” If the owner of Life in Greenland were to start optimizing for this phrase, he would probably rank pretty quickly as well.
