Ranking For Your Name In Google = Money In The Pocket

Most information marketers might focus on developing a strong product, or a sales page with high conversion rates, but it pays to rank at the top of the search engine results for your name and/or your company name, even if you don’t give a flying H1, H2 or META about Search Engine Optimization.

Witness the case of musician “AM”, who gave up his given name and goes by his initials and has been lost in the search engine results pages. (Wall Street Journal “You’re Nobody Unless Your Name Google Well“)

AM probably has lost countless sales due to fans landing on the pages of AM radio stations or American Greetings Corp (stock ticker: AM). Appearing on page 20 of the search results could spell online death.

You could counter this in a number of ways.

Increase your search engine prominence by:

  • Blogging
  • Submitting articles and press releases
  • Creating Squidoo lenses
  • Being active on social bookmarking/social community sites

But if you were active on the social traffic generation front, I’ve found that social media crosses over to search engine results fairly easily too.

That means without much conscious effort, I rank top for the SERPs for “Andrew Wee“, out of 1.28 million results.

Being easy to find means affiliate marketers, joint venture partners and most importantly, customers will be able to find you easily.

If they can’t locate you, they certainly can’t buy from you!

David Utter over at WebProNews mentions that “Parents Obsessed with Baby Names” and the “googleability” of their kids name. It may smack of a weird parental obsession, though as a parent myself, I’m somewhat glad that my daughter ranks tops for “Bianca Wee” out of 254,000 results.

Now it’s time to develop her Bianca Wee Baby and Toddler blog.

    As a professional SEO Manager, I also know that ranking for top position with your name is the easiest seo of all. Not a lot of fame in my name but I am easy to find.

    Depends what your name is.

    John Smith and Mike Brown would be more challenging.

    Andrew,

    Great post…you are really on top of things already getting your website setup for your daughter.

    She’ll forever rank #1 by starting this early.

    Your readers may also be interested in a post I did called Ranking Your Name In Google which echos your sentiments and provides some tracking and strategies for making your name popular in Google.

    It’s a great idea that more people should attempt to do!

    Cheers,
    Richard

    Your goal is to breed all the different dragons available to
    you and enter combat against other player’s dragons. The 1st Facebook game
    I would like to talk about is the king of classics.

    The player had his picture, albeit with a strange grimace and geeky affects.

    This kind of game gives a real experience of building
    a farm and planting trees. The 1st Facebook game I would
    like to talk about is the king of classics.
    Gone are the days when the evening, go out Night Weekend and hard rock festivals organized a burst
    of freshness and energy, which allows people to face the Blues on Monday, with confidence and determination.

    Because here is a list of multiplayer games is that the leave was asked for
    more. The popular epub format is written in XHTML,
    which is nothing but an advanced version of HTML.
    ‘ Just like many other ‘free to play’ games there
    are always way to spend your money within the game.

    This kind of game gives a real experience of building a farm and
    planting trees. Duplicating things that have already been proven to work is a great strategy when you are trying to grow your business and build a team.

    It is a platform used by hundreds of millions of people and this amazing potential can be
    used for business as well.

    Several of these games are worth some time and are actually quite fun.

    It’ll also save a lot of cash and time for those on a
    restricted budget who want to successfully expand their companies.

    Duplicating things that have already been proven to work is a great strategy when you are
    trying to grow your business and build a team. This whole experience has
    made the social media giant to be mindful of downtime issues of its valued social app developers.
