I tried a little experiment this weekend. Novice blogger that I am, I decided to try my hand at writing a few posts on Verrado, the community where Suzanne and I live.
The posts went up on Active Rain as follows:
March 15 Verrado
March 16 Verrado Custom Homes
March 16 Verrado - Buying? Selling?
March 17 Monterey Court at Verrado
March 18 Schools in Verrado
March 20 Homes in Verrado
Even before the post today, I noticed something a little surprising in Google rankings going on, so I threw together a list of Search Terms for Verrado and checked each phrase with Google, Yahoo, MSN and AOL. Very unscientific experiment. The results are tabulated below as results for links to my Active Rain profile and/or Active Rain posts from the list above. I tested 14 search phrases within the last half hour - please - test some others that may occur to you and post the results in a comment!
On Google, all 14 appeared on Page One, 9 of the 14 at the coveted #1 position.
On Yahoo, 9 appeared on Page One, 1 of the 14 at the coveted #1 position.
On MSN, 12 appeared on Page One, 1 of the 14 at the coveted #1 position.
On AOL, all 14 appeared on Page One, 10 of the 14 at the coveted #1 position.

I find it mind boggling that five relatively short, but focused, articles about Verrado could precipitate (pun intended) these organic Search Engine results so quickly. It just goes to show once again the Awesome Active Rain Shower Power!
