Internet Marketing Services Ranked #1
While we know from an netiquette standpoint, it’s poor form to blow your own horn. But after a three year quest for obtaining the top position in Google US for the search phrase Internet marketing services, eBiz ROI finally obtained the number one position in the Google search results for Google US, at least for the time this post was written.
Now many would say that focusing on a particular keyword or phrase and obsessing over it for three years as unhealthy. But eBiz ROI is an Internet marketing services agency. We believe in the power of search marketing and recognize that Google is the number one search engine by market share in the US by a factor of 2 to 3, a dominant market position which Google has held consistently for the last several years.
eBiz ROI is also keenly aware of the fact that Internet marketing services is a highly relevant search term that drives about 2900 (on an exact match basis) Google searches a month in the US alone

Over the past several years, eBiz ROI has been edging our way up into the top 200 search results for Internet marketing services, then top 100, then over the last year within the fourth page of the search results and more recently to the first page of the search results for search phrase Internet marketing services.
Most experienced SEOs will tell you that it’s difficult to improve a pages ranking in the search results for a highly competive search phrase once a page is in the top five search results.
eBiz ROI has ranked consistently in the top six search results for Internet marketing services now for several months, post Panda and Penguin. The domain diversity (the number of domains in the first page of the search results) has been relatively low as of late. In fact, the company that previously occupied the number one position for Internet marketing services for a long time (months consecutive, years non-consecutive), had the first and second search result position for several months, even after a significant website update, domain name change as a result of a rebranding effort, which include exchanging an aged domain for a partial match (for Internet marketing services) domain.
When eBiz ROI was ranking number six for Internet marketing services, there was actually two companies above it in the search engine rankingsthat had multiple pages within the same domain representing the top 5 search results.
The domain diversity issue, if you could call it that, is something that Google has been vocally focused on in the past few moths in terms of its search algorithm updates. While eBiz ROI is excited to be rank number one for the search phrase Internet marketing services, we do recognize that #1 ranking and the benefits it provides, could end up being a very short-lived victory.
Experienced SEOs know that search results for competitive search terms can change by the minute based on constant changes in external factors that Google uses a signals to rank webpages (e.g. links, likes, shares) for a search phrase. Making the search results even more dynamic is the fact that the Google alogrithm is contstantly being updated and tested, vetted, with small algorithm updates as fequent as daily. These changes by Google can have dramatic impacts acoss the search results of various search words/phrases.
