RBM Training, a specialist IT trainer for lawyers approached us to completely redesign their web site. They wanted a classy looking site to promote the company and it’s service to legal firms. Their new site was launched earlier today.
The SEO Championship came to end on 1st May. My entry came 48th out of approximately 800 contestants. Not bad at all really. Shame I didn’t have enough time to dedicate more time to it though. So how did the winners win?Â Well it all boiled down to the number and quality of links to their web sites. It seems as though the winners paid for other sites to link to them. I read on one blog that they spent about $500 on links. Not a huge sum of money, but still a bit of a gamble in order to win a competition. I’m proud to say that I didn’t pay for a single link to my site! The winners all seemed to have had some experience of SEO competitions and were able to use their existing portfolio of sites to shoot them up the rankings. It was a good learning process and for a short time I did make it to the number one spot on MSN.co.uk! (whoopydo)
