Today Rob Key from Converseon pinged me on how fast their work promoting reforestation through a video as part of an American Express promotion hit the Google SERPs. The project is a great example of the power of social media for a great cause.
In just 4 days the video (Second Chance Trees) ranks #2 for the phrase “American Express Members Project“. It actually ranks higher than the Amex web site for the project, which is pretty impressive with over 4 million search results for the term. Maybe after indexing this blog, the link above it’ll be doing even better.
After reading Rob’s email I posted about the TopRank Challenge and shortly afterwards received a Google Alert email notifying me the TopRank Challenge post had entered the index. I did a search for “TopRank challenge” on Google and sure enough, Online Marketing Blog was #1 with the phrase “TopRank Challenge” in bold within an hour. The same thing happened with the post on “holistic SEO” yesterday.
This higher speed of indexing and inclusion of our blog posts started happening in the past week or so. I am curious if other bloggers are noticing their posts getting into Google this fast?
