High rankings on Google!

Though caught in the Google Dance, after a bit over six months, my massage site has top 40 on all of my major keywords on Google, if only for a bit. MSN, Yahoo and all the other major search engines have had me listed right up there at the top for months. It seems all of my search engine optimization research has truly paid off. Well, I'll have to get to work on my fourth article in the Internet Marketing for Massage Therapists on a Budget series. And, wait until all of google's servers are updated to reflect the change. I tell ya, Google is the most frustrating search engine out there when it comes to reliable, relevant SERPs (search engine results pages).

Oh, to expand on the Google Dance. For several days, Google will shuffle about their search engine results, updating their index of web pages. They store this huge amount of information on several different servers. It takes time to index and update them all.

I'm really not up to my full massage schedule yet. Taking things slow. During last week's ice storm I came down with a bit of illness. Nothing serious, but it lasted a good 36 hours, and leaving me feeling pretty run down for the rest of the week. Ice storm...illness... seems the universe really wanted me to get some rest! I know a lot of this has to do with my grieving process. So, I'm opening up to these reminders and being gentle with myself.

Fiona... thanks so much for taking the time to write! You've started up a nice site.

It's always a struggle starting out as a new massage therapist. In my articles about search engine ranking for massage therapists, I'm just passing on info of my own trials, errors and research. Now that my site is ranked so highly, it brings in new customers each month, offers regular clients something interesting to explore online and creates wonderful connections from people like you!
