5 Minutes to Page 1 of Google

Call it SEO. Call it gaming the system. Call it marketing. Call it B.S.

Call it whatever you want. Or just call it freaking amazing, which is what it is.

Approximately 5 minutes until page 1 of Google, from inception to ranking.

I know what you are thinking. Go ahead. Create that new tab and Google SEO Expert Santa Barbara. You will find my yet to happen (or recorded, depending on when you read this) live stream.

UPDATE: NOW #1 out of 134,000 results!

So how exactly did I rank # 7 out of 134,000 results in less than 5 minutes?

2 Words: Live Video

Whether it be Meerkat, or Twitter’s Periscope, live video is becoming more and more important. Google is showing that in the search results.

So what were my exact steps to rank for the term “SEO expert Santa Barbara” ?

  1. Go to https://www.youtube.com/my_live_events
  2. Create a new live event.
  3. Use the keyword as the title, and again somewhere in the description.
  4. Wait a few minutes
  5. Check Google results.

Yes, that was it. Seriously.

Will the results stick? Time will tell. But for now, I'm a happy camper.

Now once it comes time to broadcast my live video I will set up Wirecast or use Google Hangouts to record the video.

Will you rank for the term car insurance using this method? No. But you might have some luck ranking super high and unbelievably fast for some long tail/less competitive keywords.

Try it out, take action, and get creative.

BONUS TIP: You can use this method to “test the waters” and see how competitive a keyword really is by making a live video and seeing how well it does.
