SEO Experiment

Filed under: Harry Potter,SEO,Squidoo — Damon @ 9:13 pm

Yesterday, there were zero websites about  “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”  Tomorrow there will be hundreds and in a week there will be thousands.

Right now every related website is “brand new” and has an “equal” chance to achieve good search engine results.  This presents the curious math teacher with an opportunity to see what it takes to get a web page on the top of a Google search.

So I created a website, appropriately titled, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Squidoo.  I’ve done a few things to help its SEO, which stands for search engine optimization…I think.  I have linked to it from my other Harry Potter lenses and at least two people have blogged about it.  (The other entry was written by Marti.)

Although traffic does not affect SEO, I have also told a number of friends and family and posted information on myspace and the Leaky Lounge.  (Traffic does help Squidoo’s internal LensRank.)

It will be interesting to see if these steps make any difference.  In the past posting at Squidoo has helped a lot with SEO.  Right now a Google search for “Harry Potter music” brings up my lens as the second site.

(Which is actually terrifying.)
