Google loves WordPress.com
This is a case study one of the top social sites to post to, WordPress.com. Correct use of this site will help raise your search engine page ranking much higher than a lot of other social linking and social information web sites.
Google really seems to love wordpress.com. I don’t mean the blog you have at your web host or server, I mean the blogs hosted by wordpress at their site. If you create a blog with some good information in it, it will be listed very high in page ranking.
Here’s a real world example. For Reno Modern Luxury Homes, a wordpress.com site was created as well with a blog title of Reno Luxury Modern Homes. A post named Reno Modern Luxury Homes For Sale was created as well. The user name for the site is renohomes – It’s a good idea to have your user name contain keywords as well. If you do a search for Reno Modern Luxury Home, you’ll see that as I write this the top 2 spots are the wordpress.com tag pages for tags put on that blog. The 3rd and 4th links are the actual site.
If you do a search for Reno Modern Homes, you’ll see that the first spot is the actual site itself which is RenoModernHomes and the #2 position is the wordpress.com blog post Reno Modern Luxury Homes For Sale.
Tags are incredibly important as you can see from the first Search Engine Results Page (SERP). the first 2 listings are in fact tags that were created and put on the http://renohomes.wordpress.com blog. The fist google listing is for the tag reno-modern-luxury-home-for-sale and the second is for the tag reno-nevada. Variations on the searches prove fruitful as well. Reno Luxury Contemporary Homes brings a page 1 position 1 and 2 of the tags used! A search for Reno Luxury Homes brings a page 1 position 6 ranking. Adding a tag for the company Pavich and Associates brings a page 1 position 3 position in a google search, the first 2 are the Pavich and Associates company website. All of this with one blog and 1 post.
Google truly loves WordPress.com
