Larry Rivera – I May Be A Bum But I Know SEO

I finally Did  IT! I got Larry Rivera to the first page of google again….. YA ME!

So as the story goes. I was doing a google search and seen that this blog was like on the 4th page of the google rankings.  I started working on getting Larry Rivera ranked back on the first page On January 13th 2015.

Unfortunately I wasn’t thinking that maybe I should document my journey back to the first page of google for the keyword Larry Rivera. However I have captured some screen shots today with my progress. Just trust me when I say I was nowhere to be found in the search engines.  After the post I did on the 13th I did another blog post January 29th

Is Larry Rivera A SEO GURU?

I don’t want to toot my own horn. But this isn’t the only blog I write in and I have some choice keyword phrases in some of my niches using similar techniques that I used to get my site back on the first page for my name.

To be honest there really isn’t a secret to getting your stuff ranked.  I would like you to notice a few things.

from the above screenshots it appears Google is harder to get on the first page than Bing and Yahoo.

While I would have loved to document this experience fully I simply forgot to and I am sorry about that. However, here are some of the things I did that made the difference.

I deep linked to each one of my post, not just with my keyword phrase but I also deep linked to my older post with support phrases (alt text).

I made sure to syndicate my post as well as leave some comments on some cool bloggers… Basically getting some link juice.

Note: Larry Rivera isn’t really a competitive keyword phrase and I commend the other person who I share a name with because he has done quite well himself. 

With that being said, if you take the time to read the post that led up to this post (hint: they are deep linked within this post) you will see how I created my linking structure for better seo. Look at my headlines as well as the pictures I used…

All the post where focused on just one goal. Get a higher rank in the search engines. I tried to keep all the post entertaining and informative.

You can copy this seo strategy and assuming you aren’t competing against a super competitive keyword you should have no problems climbing up in rank.

I hope you found some value from these post. Maybe you laughed, maybe you cried or maybe you think I am totally insane and that’s okay.

I look forward to sharing more of my journey in life with you

One thought on “Larry Rivera – I May Be A Bum But I Know SEO”

  1. Hey Larry,

    I never checked to see where my blog is. So after I read this post, I checked Google and Yahoo. I’m on the second page of Google and first page of Yahoo. Sounds like I’m doing something right.

    I don’t know if my strategy is the same as yours, but I do internal linking, and like you I make sure I put in the keywords in the alt text of my images.

    But I definitely have to congratulate you for getting your site on the second page. Most bloggers have a hard time with this, especially with the changes that Google have made. It doesn’t take working hard, but working smarter in this case, and you definitely are the epitome of working smart!

    Great share Larry! I look forward to your future posts on your progress with this blog!
