Luck Favors the Bold

I think I’m pretty good at SEO. (That is Search Engine Optimization for all of you non-geeks out there.)  Over the last year and a half I’ve worked with some of the best people at BizzyWeb and have refined my techniques and understanding of search engines and page rankings.

Optimizing a site is 1 part research, 1 part technical, and 1 part social.  It’s an art to pull it all together and organically grow your search engine rankings.  

Sure, there are services out there that promise a first page listing with Google or Bing, but many of them “game the system“. When Google changes their search algorithm used to rank sites, the sites that gamed the system tend to drop in page rankings like a rock.

I’m not talking about that kind of SEO.  I’m talking about using industry best practices, good SEO tools for research, and leveraging the power of social media to get the word out.  BizzyWeb has been able, on average to double a websites traffic in just a few months. After Googles last algorithm change, the sites we worked on tended to jump up in traffic and search engine rankings because we don’t game the system and follow industry best practices.

I’m taking all that I have learned about SEO and applying it to the Slow Pitch Nation and our network of sites like  I’m taking a very targeted niche market, slow pitch softball tournaments, and I am to be the major player this narrow niche.  

As of 2/6/2012 this network of sites didn’t exist to Google or Bing. We submitted our sites to the search engines this morning, and it will be a few days before they index the sites and we start to appear in search results.

Why am I telling you all of this?

Luck favors the bold.  And I’m making a bold prediction.  By mid July of 2012, we will dominate the first page of search engine results for the following keywords:

Some may think I’m crazy or insane for publicly declaring that I am going to pull this off.  BAH! I say.  

Luck favors the bold! Is this bold enough for you?  


It’s Launch Day!

It is finally the day!  The official re-launch of the Slow Pitch Nation! is a national registry of slow pitch softball tournaments and softball information. There are 50 sites, one for each state (find your state in the sidebar) It’s easy to find slow pitch softball tournaments. It’s free to post your tournaments,  and can include an embedded Google Map , link to an associated Facebook or Twitter account, and even add a photo gallery.

This has been a labor of love, and I hope you like it.
