what are the plans for globalwarming awareness2007 sites?!

We are all happy to see over 1.180.000 pages indexed by Google for globalwarming awareness2007. I suppose the overall amount will be twice or even more bigger by the end of the contest - too many sites, too much time spent and only a few among the winners.

That has moved me to think about the future of all those globalwarming awareness2007 pages - so carefully (rather carefully than not) created and polished. What do all the page owners plan to do with their masterpieces?! Just leave'em and put into oblivion or use for any other purposes?!

Who knows?! Globalwarming awareness2007 contest has attracted so many people from all over the world - and it's time to think about "hey, we are the community!!" :)

As I understand, those participating in the contest are mostly all SEO-involved. In this case it's sensible to use the opportunity of "I-saw-him-in-the-contest" partnership. If you are an SEO specialist and have projects to optimize and promote - don't hesitate to contact me and other contest participants in order to build long-term partnership for SEO optimization purposes. I think those "in theme" know for sure what I mean :)

1st “globalwarming awareness2007″ comparison

It's Sunday and the 6th day of the race. Today's observations showed www.e-globalwarming-awareness2007.com/ to be number 1 in Google. I've made up my mind to compare our pages and reveal the differencies which affect site's Google position.

So, here we start with keyword density in:

  1. Titles. Both sites have "Globalwarming awareness2007".
  2. Body text. "Globalwarming awareness2007" makes up 4.4% of the overall amount of words used on the page for www.e-globalwarming-awareness2007.com/, while www.nokeywordinurl.com has the index of 2.9% only.
  3. Meta keywords. Here I'm loosing for sure and as a result should not be high in MSN, which prefers keyword stuffing in meta tags. So, my competitor has 47.1% versus 14.3% of mine.
  4. Meta description. Absolute equality: 14.3%.
  5. H1 headline text. I don't have them at all (need to be fixed). 100% at www.e-globalwarming-awareness2007.com/.
  6. H2 headline text. It's much better: 9.1% and my 12.5% - makes me smile a little bit :)
  7. Link URLs. 0.9% to 2.5%! I'm more quotable!
  8. Image ALT attributes. As I don't have them at all - my score is 0! www.e-globalwarming-awareness2007.com/ has 70% index.
  9. HTML Comment Tags. 14.8% VS 0% :( Don't even know what to say here...
  10. Web Page Parts Combined. Comparing the amount of all words on the pages we have the next image: www.e-globalwarming-awareness2007.com/ - 170 of 1996 (8.5%), and www.nokeywordinurl.com's - 46 of 1585 (2.9%).

Much work has to be done. I'll try to insert images and write a more stuffed content, but still won't use keywords in urls.

Technorati gives only 13 blogs listed

I've found only 13 blogs dedicated to "globalwarming awareness2007" contest on Technorati. It's quite a strange thing as there are more than 262,000 pages indexed in Google. Is Technorati out of "war"?! Time will show.......

“globalwarming awareness2007″ 19.01.07

Hey, it's a real rush!!!! I could not expect such a boost in ranking results for Google!!! There are 197,000 (more) pages indexed by Google according to my results. Not bad, really!

The standing is as follows:

Top 10 Google results (as they appear on my screen):

  1. www.global-warming-awareness2007.org/
  2. the same domain/-globalwarming-awareness2007-.html
  3. blog.outer-court.com/archive/2007-01-17-n55.html
  4. www.globalwarmingawareness2007.be/
  5. www.pink-globalwarming-awareness2007.com/
  6. www.globalwarming-awareness2007info.info/
  7. seo-contest.info/globalwarming-awareness2007/
  8. www.swc-globalwarming-awareness2007.com/
  9. globalwarmingawareness2007theblog.com/
  10. www.seotroll.com/

I've decided to shorten my list as the changes for Yahoo! and MSN are not so severe. Once a week I'll be posting results for these search engines along with a more detailed report on SEO techniques and elements used for optimization.

By the way, nokeywordinurl.com is №128 in Google, and no results in MSN and Yahoo! yet.

Another .htaccess example

Working on many projects I am constantly facing the task of changing or (more often) creating .htaccess file. There is no reason to mention once again that its installment is very important for SEO purposes, but some people are not still aware of it.

At first it was like a nightmare: so many info on the Internet that I could not decide what advice to follow. .htaccess description on Apache's official site is very nice but not for optimizers - rather for tech-gurus. Then I followed the experience of other sites, and tried to implement their examples on my projects. A better result but still unsatisfied - too many variants as many people there are.

And finally I've found (I believe) the core variant accessible for all. Try to install it on your server and you must forget about 301 redirect.

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.nokeywordinurl.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.
nokeywordinurl/$1 [R=301,L]

- this part should redirect all non-www requests to www.nokeywordinurl.com

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*/index.php?
RewriteRule ^(.*)index.php?$ http://www.
nokeywordinurl.com/$1 [R=301,L]

- and this one redirects your index.php (in my example) to www.nokeywordinurl.com/ . In case you have index.html - just change php to html or whatever you have.

“globalwarming awareness2007″ 18.01.07

It's the second round of indexing "in-contest" pages by the search engines and it's time to frame some kind of comparison table.

First of all, I'd like to describe the core principles the table will be based on.

  1. The key phrase will be searched for without using quotation marks, i.e. I'll put the raw phrase -globalwarming awareness2007- into the search bar.
    Why? 'Cause, let's imagine our term is a brand name (as some guys for the contest tried to imagine) and put ourselves in an average man's place. Those who search for "adidas shoes" will type in just adidas shoes - no marks, no special signs for a more narrower search results. I doubt more than 20-30 percent of search engines users make use of these techniques. That is why it's our choice.
  2. The table will contain the data about back links to the page.
    Essential thing for PR boost and, consequently - better results in SERPs.
  3. Page Rank.
    Not too helpful at the moment as all the "clean" sites participating have domain names registered on the 15th of January - nice part of the contest. I will be waiting for the results of Page Rank update with a more exited feeling - who will get the highest PR? - Time will show.
  4. Keyword density.
    Will be monitored throughout the page: body text, meta keywords, meta description,
    H1 text, all link texts, IMG alt attributes, overall amount compared to the number of all the words on the page.
  5. And, for sure - the position of the page in Google, Yahoo!, MSN.
    In plain words - the aim of any search engine optimization process. This contest is not an exception!
  6. All the rest will be added later - as it requires more spare time (I'm in lack of).

So, here are the results we can see on the SERPs 18.01.07.
***I'm working on this thing from Belarus, i.e. the results can be different due to the differences of search engine data centers results.

Top 10 Google results (as they appear on my screen):

Here I am going to publish the reports on sites' positions in major search engines. It's not still clear for me how, but I will try to make the comparison table sufficient and readable.

The Game Is On!!!

One more SEO championship started on the 15th of January. The guys from seoworldchampionship.com suggested "globalwarming awareness2007" to be the keyword for site optimization.

This very blog was initially planned to have another URL and structure, but let me tell the whole story :)

January 15th, 12.45 PM EST, I'm waiting for the keyword to be announced. Everyone wants to get the keyword in his/her URL, you know. I'm not an exception. Domain seller's site is on the screen and it is almost time for the fun, but I look at my watch and see it's 13.00 already - no notification email received yet. Refresh button on the main page of the site - here it is. Globalwarming awareness2007 - I've been waiting for you for so long!! :) Ctrl+C, tab switch in my broweser, ctrl+v in the domain seller's site feild and...Oh, noooo!!! all "globalwarming awareness2007" domains are already sold out!!! org, com, net, info - I can't believe it!!! Less than 2 minutes passed and I'm a bit of looser at the very beginning :)

Calm down, man. There should be other top SEO-ranking variants available.....should, but...the same story :( Am I so slow?! That's it. Unfortunately, but I'm not a man to say "I'm looser"!!!

We'll find another way! :) Let's make it fun and play the game with www.nokeywordinurl.com! Why not?! We are all aware that keywords in sites' URLs play a significant role for ranking. The more relevant the URL is to the aiming keywords of a site the more chances that your page will be higher in Google, MSN or Yahoo SERPs are. But what if not to follow the strategy?

Here the "no keyword in URL" is born! :) I'll try to create a page, more a less relevant to the topic declared (if we can consider it a real topic) and follow the white-seo strategies only to prove (rather reprove) that even in case your everywhere-relevant-pages are really ok, search engines prefer those who wake up earlier and get the right domain names quicker!!! Besides, I'll try to cover the site inspection of the leaders and find some tricky steps that can be of interest for many others.
Good luck to all the participants and my heartiest congratulations to the Italian team with their www.globalwarming-awareness2007.com!! Let's play the game! :)

Breckenridge Vacations

Last year I was in Breckenridge ( located in Colorado) for the first time.
It was a great choice! Breckenridge offers many indoor and outdoor activities in winter and in summer.
There is a wide variety of vacation rental options from a ski-in ski-out condo to a private home in town.
At you can find superb accommodation you need if you are going to spend your vacation in Breckenridge.
Summers are beautiful here with blue skies, mild temperatures and activities such as hiking, mountain or path biking,
rock climbing, golfing, horseback riding and the Peak 8 Fun Park.
I was really pleased staying there. Now I am looking forward to my next vacation in Breckenridge.
