End of November 2012 Blog Update 42 Comments
As some of you will recall, we recently had some rankings problems at my structured settlement daytime job. After a month of patiently waiting and taking steps to get back in Google’s good books, we are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Some keyword rankings have fully recovered and others continue to improve.
It would be a huge understatement to say that we’re relieved about this. It’ll be a welcome change of pace to go back to working on website marketing where progress can actually be tracked. Business around here should pick up too. So it’s a big weight lifted off my shoulders. I might even feel the need to celebrate the achievement this weekend.
While I did expect the rankings to recover eventually, it is still a little stressful dealing with the unknown. We didn’t know how long it would take, what level of recovery we’d see or whether any hiccups would hold us back. We could’ve ended up fighting this thing for months.
On the blogging front, I’m involved in a few big giveaway contests this month. Two of them will be group contests that I am co-hosting, one of which I am quite excited about. Tomorrow I have an exclusive contest that I will be announcing on my blog. I’m sure you will all like what I have planned. So check back tomorrow to enter. Also stay tuned in the next 2 weeks for the other contests.
