My Name is Todd Dubner seems to be the perfect title for a blog post that is in part an SEO experiment. I made the decision last week that I was going to take some simple steps to try to boost the page rank of my blog for my own name. We talk about SEO all the time, and I had not really done any personally – just listened to experts and had our organization all geared to appeal to Google on an institutional scale.
So far so good, in the first day or so I was able to move from page 2 to page 1. I think that I can probably get to mid-page with just about an hour more work. So far, here is what I have done…
I added a page to my blog named “Todd Dubner”. That means that every one of my posts have a link to a description of me with the title tag of the link beign my name. (Note that I also just did a little internal linking on the blog for my name just above).
I just posted my picture with the name of the File as Todd Dubner.jpg, descriptive text of Todd Dubner. I will spare you all the video…
I managed all of my social media presence accounts to point to the blog. Linked-in, Twitter, Facebook, Active Rain profiles all now have a link to the blog – I am not sure how impactful that will be, but it seemed wise.
I added myself to Google Profiles with a link to my blog.
I used the blog roll to point at all of my social media presence points.
I tagged myself in a couple of posts.
I bought $15 worth of clicks on Google for my name, just trying to encourage them to take a closer look at my site.
So, about 1 hour of work, $15 in spend and so far about 1/2 a page in rank.
