SEO Manchester Gets To Page 1

It’s 8.05am on Sunday, 1st February and I’ve just checked Google to see how this site was doing.

As usual I immediately clicked on the 2nd page to see if I was still around 13/14th position and couldn’t see my site. I clicked on page 3. Nothing there either. I thought Google had perhaps banished me to the wilderness for a while again.

Then I thought! Could I have made it already?

Lo and behold, I look on page 1 of Google for the search term SEO Manchester and I’m at number 9! I started this site on 16th January and only 16 days later I’ve made it onto the first page. Not bad for a novice!

The site has also reached number 9 for a worldwide Google search for the search term SEO Manchester against 1,410,000 results.

It just goes to show that SEO is not rocket science. By following some basic principles it really is posible to get a high ranking for your web site even when you are competing against some tough opposition. 


Hi, my name is Mark and I’m the owner of SEO Manchester.

I started in SEO in 2009 and have gradually built up my business solely from organic traffic generated via high search engine rankings (mainly Google).

I love building highly optimised WordPress websites and optimising Google Places listings. I am also constantly building on my knowledge of the uses of all forms of social media for marketing effectiveness, particularly Google+.

When not helping clients improve their online presence I enjoy walking the dog around the hills where we live, reading, real ale and (surprise) spending more time on the web.
