Great Brak River South Africa
Great Brak River Accommodation and Accommodation Great Brak River were two key-phrases Hanno Coetzee suggested this morning for a tagging test and contest. The issue was about: how to tag and publish in the most efficient way a post targeting people who are looking for accommodation in Great Brak River on the Garden Route in South Africa.
I had told Hanno that I have been testing different methods recently and that I had some astonishing results with a ‘new’ or a different way of tagging bringing the Semiomantics tuning advantages yet to another level.
To increase the challenge, I wanted to use a brand new blog, in fact I started posting from the blog we set up last night at during the Ycademy call. The site is at Africa YORGOO Media and if you check it out: the configuration of the site is not yet completed, however the basic Semiomantics set up on YORGOO Media gave me the necessary confidence to take the bet.
The post content suggested by Hanno was a recent post on Garden Route Directory by Hanno Coetzee which we just copied and pasted into the new site.
Here are some of the Results:
Accommodation Great Brak River
All Accommodation keywords in South Africa and on the Garden Route in particular are difficult to conquer as there is fierce competition and active publishing by sites which have been there for ages.
Our result is astonishing anyway:
Our best result is with Africa YORGOO Media on rank 7, beating YORGOO Publishing which ranks 9th.
Great Brak River Accommodation
This is probably closer to what a visitor would type into Google and again, we are visible on top 10 on Great Brak River Accommodation.
Similar result as before, we come in under Great Brak River Accommodation with Africa YORGOO Media on number 9, ahead of YORGOO Publishing.
Great Brak River
Great Brak River is the name of a town on the Garden Route in South Africa. We test this tag as well and again we make it immediately to rank 9 with the new site at Africa YORGOO Media.
Garden Route Great Brak River
Searchers may want to zoom in using Geographic criteria and look for Garden Route Great Brak River. So did we and again we find our post on spot 8, this time with YorgoNestoridis.com:
Let’s look further along these lines.
South Africa Great Brak River
Our best shot is Africa YORGOO Media again on rank 26 for South Africa Great Brak River:
It’s rank 16 by now, not 26 … we are moving up fast.
Great Brak River Bed and Breakfast
Other people may look for a special type of accommodation in Great Brak River such as bed and Breakfast. Here as well we score well with our post:
Africa YORGOO media comes in on number 5, our best performance.
Some people may just want to know more about the place where they have booked to stay and therefore they may type into the Google search:
Great Brak River Resting Palms
The Google search on Great Brak River Resting Palms returns an absolutely smashing result:
Again, Africa YORGOO Media comes in on top, this time on number 1. The other market sites are sites syndicating YORGOO Publishing or sites which have been there before, such as Hanno’s Gardenrouteaccom.co.za, a smashing site in general (but we beat it) as well as gardenroutedirectory.com, which we beat as well.
Interesting: there are two sites from YORGOO Media on these top 8, demonstrating the power of our new Publishing framework at YORGOO Media.
Finally, let’s just do a search on the name of the accommodation: Resting Palms. Google returns over 1,800,000 results and here is where we come in:
Our best shot again is Africa YORGOO Media! Rank 6 –9 or 4 out of 10 is a nice result.
Publishing Online: Benefits and Value
Imagine you are the owner of Resting Palms in Great Brak River and you would like to become visible on Google so that tourists and travellers can find the place when searching Google. You have two possibilities: either you pay for advertising on Google or top ranked sites, or you get your own site set up to grab the keywords of your interest. Google ads are probably way too expensive over the long run if you want to reach a statistically significant result.
Advertising on well places sites such as the Gardenroute directory is a convenientsolution for multiple reasons: low cost (compare with Yahoo directory where a minimum entry is $200 per month and you don’t see these guys hardly on Google, but still cheaper than Google ads.), great presentation and editorials and a fast spreading presence on thousands of South Africa related keywords: probably the best deal on line right now namely for people taking long term contracts as the site is young and fast growing. Contact: Lalakoi or The Garden Route Newsletter.
Get your own web site. For a one man show business (like many bed and breakfast facilities are), a solid publishing solution such as YORGOO Press or YORGOO Media could be ideal provided the owner publishes regularly content about events, stories and so on about the business, town, area and so forth. Cost wise it’s the best solution for people who have a long term ambition for their business and who want to spend the time to take care of an own site (needs may be some learning).
