Page One Google Rankings
Over the years, I've learned how to get page one Google rankings for many keyword phrases. You can see the proof here: http://www.bookmarket.com/bookranks.htm for a ton of book marketing and book publishing terms.
But to prove it's not a fluke of my book marketing specialty, here are a number of more general terms that I've also ranked well for (via my hobby sites): http://www.bookmarket.com/pageranks.htm.
I'd now like to offer this service to you. Because it is labor intensive, I do have to charge $2,000 - but it comes with a full guarantee that I keep working on your site until you get a page one Google listing for your keyword phrase.
If you are interested, email JohnKremer@BookMarket.com with attn: Google Page One! Or call me at 575-751-3398.
If you'd like a Google page one listing AND an Alexa rank of 500,000 or better for your author website, I can do that as well. For the two-fer (Google Page One and Alexa Boost), I charge $5,000 because it takes more work to bump a website up the Alexa ranks.
It's actually easier to rank on page one in Google searches than it is to bump a website into the top half a million websites worldwide. Note: As of April, there were 211 million website addresses in the world. 94 million websites are registered as dot coms. 58 billion URLs are featured at Open Site Explorer. There are 156 million blogs, and counting. Whatever way you look at it, there is incredible competition.
I'm working on a course to teach you how to do this yourself (rank well on Google searches as well as rank well in Alexa), but until I finish that course, I'm offering this Google Page One and Alexa Boost service.
Note: A good PR service will charge you $5,000 a month, and their results are temporary. With this service, you'll have a website that really generates visitors for years to come. As part of the service, I'll teach you five simple steps to maintain your Google and Alexa rankings once I've boosted them to respectable levels.
Guarantee: Everything I will do to boost your rankings is white hat honest-to-goodness quality actions because I want your site to continue to enjoy top rankings for years to come.
