Just a quick update on the widgetbait case study. Today the target investment calculator page is ranking on page 5 in Google and on page 12 in Live. Yahoo is still not showing it within the first 20 pages.
Fifth page in Google may not be a huge thing but is significant progress since the previous time. Important thing to mention is that in addition to the widget bait we got few links from forum signature, few links from one article and a link from Hubpages hub. So it’s not the widget alone, but good luck ranking for such a keyword without it.
Now the next step includes wiring one more article and maybe making one more hub and squidoo page. Since this is very unlikely to give significant improvement, we’ll plan the next widget targeting the same page. Stay tuned.
