People pay $100,000 or more to get to the first page of Google results.  Here’s a pretty cool technique I discovered which can get you there in one hour, for free.  Pretty cool, huh?


Value of a high Google ranking:

When people search for your product or service, they go to Google.  Therefore, every business wants to show up on the first page.  However, it’s tough to get there, because every other business wants to be there also, and only 10 sites can show up on the first page.

Therefore, most companies have to pay for Google ads (on the top and right hand side of the results  page), and some pay $100,000 or more a year to do so – and it’s worth it.  Google makes almost all of their money on these ads, so they are effective, but it’s better to rank on the left hand side in the organic results, since 65% of people never click on a paid ad.

Others pay an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) consultant (like me) to show up in the organic rankings on the left hand side, where most people look anyways.  It’s tough to get your web page listed there, because everyone who is an “accountant” wants to show up there when a potential customer searches for “accountant”.

Consultants who do SEO know the fastest ways to get there, but I have 5 techniques that can get you there in a few days if there isn’t too much competition, and I’ve never seen anyone publish this one.

This particular technique might get you there in an hour – no kidding.

The trick is to create an entry on Craig’s List, and to have it contain the keywords that your potential customer might look for.  This 4 minute video will show an actual example and some more details…

There are huge upsides to this approach:

  • Its free to do (and I gave it to you for free)
  • It can legitimately get you to the top of Google results in an hour, as you can see in the video

There are some problems with this approach:

  • If there is a lot of competition for your keywords, you may not rank highly
  • Its transient.  It will probably only last a few days, and Craig’s List doesn’t like it if you re-post in less than 4 days or so
  • You’d have to put your contact information in there, including your phone number, email, a pointer to your web site, et cetera
  • Depending on your business, buyers may not be convinced by a Craig’s List ad.  However, at the very least, you’d knock some of your competition out of the top 10.

The actual Craig’s List entry in the example (from 9/30/10) is at and the search that was done in Google was

Amateur videographer Washington, DC

Of course, you probably won’t’ want to advertise yourself as an amateur videographer, but the fact is that if you choose keywords that your target market would use to search for your service, you can use this technique to get a great Google ranking for a while.  After a few days, you can do it again.

Good luck out there.

I think this is a killer idea. I just tried it and will let you know in a week how I did.

Cool. Let me know.

3 Abhineet Shukla { 10.20.10 at 10:25 pm }

This was something a new for me. I will try this trick out. I will try it for my organisations site Greenhat Softech –

Its a good thing if it does happen in reality, as Craig’s List itself will give a lot of value to the site.

Abhineet Shukla,

Your actual entry will show up in Google results, but I can’t promise that your link will get you any “link Juice”.

Thanks Patrick for the input specially for me

Hey, I have been testing out different approaches to this problem. I think I cracked a piece of the Google Code…here is my link, tell me what you think for yourself…it’s light years better than Craigslist, and it’s 2011!
The video on my Blog made it to the first page of Google within an hour or so. Out of 43 million other search results…there it appeared…at number 3!

I really hope this technique still works. I’m going to check it today and report back. There’s much competition for my keywords, but if this works I will be very happy.

9 peace { 03.17.12 at 3:15 am }

Do you really think it works so easily

11 Removals Boxes { 05.22.13 at 8:35 am }

Would this not get backlinks for Craigslist as opposed to your website?

12 bala { 09.03.13 at 4:03 am }

Good idea. I LL try.

13 maomean { 09.03.13 at 11:38 pm }

i want to have a good page rank 1 on google page but i don’t know help me please

14 patrick_omalley { 09.04.13 at 8:58 am }

Removals Boxes, this had nothing to do with backlinks. The actual craigslist listing ends up on page one.

15 patrick_omalley { 09.04.13 at 8:58 am }

maomean, I gave you one trick. Everybody wants to rank on page 1 of Google. Have the greatest content in the world for your keywords, and you’ll probably get to page 1.

Thanks for all of the labor on this web site.
My mom takes pleasure in conducting investigation and it
is easy to see why. Most of us learn all regarding the dynamic manner you produce valuable tips through the blog and
therefore foster contribution from the others on the content while our favorite simple princess is in fact understanding a lot of things.
Have fun with the rest of the new year. You’re the one performing a powerful job.
