The Power of Keywords with the Google

Any SEO scam artist expert will tell you that keywords and their position are extremely important to your search engine rankings. We here at ShuttleBox witnessed the power of keywords this weekend as we noticed that our website ranks 10th in the Google search results when you search for “hello kitty sweat pants.” How did that happen?

I made mention of hello kitty a few times in my last blog entry as an example of an e-commerce product, which catapulted us in the search rankings. Accidentally, of course. Maybe if we’re lucky, one of those teenage girls or mothers of teenage girls searching for hello kitty sweat pants might need some web development done as well.

We’re not holding our breaths.

    That’s amazing! Just goes to show that the only rule in search engine optimization is that there are no rules. It is certainly worth encouraging your site to show in search results, but you can’t force it. I’m curious if anyone else had any experiences that surprised them in regards to search engine optimization?

    Haha! You never know though… That teenage girl may want to set up a “Hello Kitty” fan club!

    I’ve had results like that before, but I guess you could say that I “asked for it”… I mean, the plugin SexyBookmarks just by nature of it’s name attracts a whole host of PR0N fans to the site… Needless to say, I would guess that most of them are quite disappointed when they get there!
