Couldn't you be a little less obvious for fucks sake?

Hi David,

You might want to try to add VC on the title of your home page, not just invididual posts. For example you could title your blog "Venture Blog: Technology Thoughts from a VC." Also, the URL of your site has a huge impact. You are getting a bonus on your rank for Venture Capitalist because your URL contains "venture".

If you want to learn more about this stuff, my company has a blog about internet marketing for small businesses and firms. ( www.smallbusinesshub.com ) Good luck in climbing the rankings!

David,
This is a fantastic post. Not only did you inform me about this great Google tool which I used and will write about shortly, but you eloquently summarized why VC's should blog.

The learning you get about web technologies through blogging is invaluable. VC blogger revenues and traffic numbers may be missing a few zeros but we use all the tools entreprenuers use in their sites and can talk about them. We are after all the CEO's of our Internet companies.

As for the stats don't feel too bad. I get one query with VC in it and that's "ethical issues tech vc"!! I don't have a single query to venture, venture capital or venture capitalist even though they are both in my URL and title. C'est la vie.

I do get a bunch of Web 2.0 queries and "Sand Hill Road" queries though which aint bad.

Thanks again for the great post.

DH - your page rank is a 7. Throw the terms you want (VC) into your blog and blog postings and they'll start coming up on Google with a 7 ...

The PageRank algorithm is oblivious to keywords such as "VC". PageRank is computed solely by the link structure of the pages without consideration to their content. It uses the assumption that useful pages are often pointed to by many other useful pages.

The reason you are not seeing any searches for your 'main terms' is that nobody is actually searching on those terms. They are searching on more generic terms like 'venture capital'.

Don't try to tweak your search results, just keep writing good content about venture capital. Write well and naturally about related issues and you'll have a nice long tail as well.

A quick SEO lesson for you, hope it helped. For more try searchengineworkshops.com and sign up for the 'tip of the day'.

PS. Try Google Analytics if you really want to see where everyone is coming from and what they're doing.

Didn't you forget "VC blog"? And has it had any effect yet?
