Playing around with SEO

As a hobby, I’ve been playing around with search engine optimization on this blog. Getting a link on the first page of a Google results page has been the holy grail of online marketeers for over a decade. Sounds simple enough, but Google’s secret recipe does not give itself up easily. Most posts don’t even show up if you search the complete body of the text.. Aside from reading up on the basic technicalities, I refuse to use online tutorials: no one ever got ahead by doing what everybody else is doing. The results have been limited, up until recently. For a few three-word searches, my posts started showing up on the first page, some even as the very first result. Nice, innit?
