I thought it would be interesting to do an SEO analysis of Carl’s blog. Carl has optimized his blog for the keyword “Make Money Online”. As of today, October 3, 2007 https://www.carlocab.com ranks No.2 in Google and No.13 in Yahoo for “Make Money Online”.
The blog also ranks well for other variations of the three keywords:
– “money online make” No. 1 in Google, No. 4 in Yahoo.
– “online make money” No. 2 in Google, No. 4 in Yahoo.
Backlinks – Google reports 358 backlinks
I was only able to find the main keywords in 2 Anchor Text Links of the top ten backlinks.
The PR of the top 30 web sites that link back are:
1 = PR 7
4 = PR 6
4 = PR 5
10 = PR 4
4 = PR 3
2 = PR 2
1 = PR 1
4 = NA
Very Good! Carl has worked hard at getting backlinks from sites with high PR.
The keyword density for “Make Money Online” in the blog is 4.8% which is generally thought to be in the optimal Keyword Density range.
Keywords are not found in the domain name. Nothing can be done about this.
One h1 tag includes the keywords. This gives extra points.
The Meta Description, Img “Alt” Attribute and Meta Keywords all contain at least one mention of the targeted keyword. Well done.
Out of a total of 152 links on the site 7 contain the chosen keywords. Good.
The Alexa Rank is 35227 and the Trend is up 17%.
Our conclusion as time goes by Carl should be able to continue ranking high for his chosen keywords.
General suggestions for Carlo to keep ahead of the competition:
– Add more backlinks with anchor text link containing the targeted keywords.
– Try to limit the outbound links. Have more Img “Alt” Attributes containing the keywords.
– Do not share the IP address with other domains.
As a special favor for 10 readers of Carl’s blog, I am ready to do a similar analysis. Look for a post about this on my blog as soon as this post is approved. Just comment with your blog url and your chosen keywords.
