Hi all, I’ve just noticed that some of my sounds/effects appears in the first results on Google that’s why I can sell them quite well..
I mean, as costumer if I write “error sounds 8bit” (that could be a typical research) my sound appears in the first 5 results!
The point is, I don’t know how can it happened.. And about songs? How can we make it possible for our songs?
Maybe you already know this, but try Googling in another browser, or through Incognito mode (Chrome) or Private browsing (Firefox). That way search results won’t be adjusted by your surfing/browsing preferences and you’ll get the more real picture of how Google ranks and presents search results. I got fooled by this a while ago
Yeah, same thing happened to me when I put up our website for the first time. I kept searching certain keywords and tracking the progress of our site. I probably clicked on it several times. After some time, we were “on the first page”. How excited I was! Then I tried with another browser…
Good news is, we actually DO rank high now for those keywords. It just took some time.
Or try “Yahooing” and you will see different result
I’ve signed a contract with Google. So if a customer is searching for your profile mine pops up instead or if a customer is searching for petrenjs profile mine shows up for him and so on. Even if a customer doesn’t want music it still shows him my page as a first result!
urbazon saidOk, I’ve tried in Incognito with Chrome, happy to see the same results Anyway, I know what you mean guys, but it was a pretext to reflect on this point: How can a costumer find my song from Google?
Incognito mode (Chrome)
It’s not that simple matter, as many parameters influence search results. Many are known only to Google (they don’t want people to “game” their most important product )
But one thing you can do is to always try and think of very good, descriptive text for your profile page and item pages. Of course, write only relevant stuff, but the more descriptive it is (and the more text it contains), it might get “picked” up better. I guess that’s what we all can/should do.
I guess you can also try with AdWords campaigns, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the investment (never tried it personally, so it’d be nice to hear some input from people who tried it already).
We did adwords for about a year…and still do occasionally. It helped us get some customers and inquiries for sure. But like anything, it can only really work if you have a product worth people’s money. We’re in kind of a niche market, so we felt it was worth it.
