View Full Version : Like taking candy from a baby

Getting number 1 in MSN is like taking candy from a baby. I just wish I would get the same traffic as I do from a number 1 in Google.

They are and will tweak that as time goes by, a bunch of my listing are gone and some other showed up, so they are playing with the knobs. For the moment grap the candies and be happy, once they become like Google and mess things up, you'll be drooling over the candies you can't get to anymore... lol

I have to agree - I launched a site one week ago for a 2-word KWP, one of the words is extremely competitive, but for the phrase - light traffic, light competition. It currently sits #1.
It almost fools me into thinking I know what I'm doing.

thats the work of seo - nothing is guaranteed. (did i spell it right this time?
anyways, enjoy your ranking in mean time.

Enjoy it while you can. I think it's a matter of time when they make it more complex.

So in the mean time I keep up to date with optimization by staying active in the seo-guy forum. ;)

Not evryone can rank #1 so some of you must be doing something right, even though it's only MSN.
I am in position #3 for some certain keywords, but I have noticed that if I drop just one place to #4 then I lose quite a bit of traffic. It shows that quite a lot of people just view the top three without scrolling down.

LOL, too true.
You never know exactly what it is you have done that is the reason you are ranking high. At least not untill you are actually in the business for quit some time. All others, including me, are doing so many things at once that it is hard to say what caused the high ranking....

Yes. There is a huge difference between above the fold traffic, and below the fold - the above the fold being the part of the screen that is viewable without having to scroll. For some terms this means only the first two results are above.

Top three definately get the most hits.
