My name is Ian Douglas and I have just read an interesting article by Keith of Whitehaven.
After reading it I decided to check my own Google Ranking and was shocked to find that although I own several domains with variations of my name my highest ranking website only appears on page 5 if I search Google UK for the term Ian Douglas.
Unfortunately my name is a much more common name than I thought and if I do a Google search there are quite a few famous people (including several authors) who share my name. I notice Wikipedia ranks quite highly for Ian Douglas so, as it is an “authority site” I am including a link to it in this post.
Following Keith’s advice I have put my name in bold at the start of this post and also underlined my name later on. I have also created a Category and Tag of my name and will use them on this Post.
Will I manage to creep up from Page 5 to spot nearer to Page 1? Who knows… but I think it is worth a try.
Why not try it yourself?
