These anecdotes from small business owners suggest that for some businesses coming up first on search results is as easy as making a small website update to your blog or website on a 5 days a week basis.
I’m going to test it myself and I’d like you, my clients and readers, to also try doing a small daily website update. We’ve nothing to lose but a few minutes and lots to gain. Comment here and tell me if you’ll try it with me and share your results.
Everyday when I start work, I check my bank balance and my answering machine. I’ll now do my daily website update in that same “beginning of the day” session. Also, I’ll spend an hour Monday and Friday writing several short blog posts to post to my blog thoughout the week.
Are you down for updating your blog or website 5 days a week?
