This blog now focus on becoming no 1 IT Improvement website in Indonesia on all major search engine. Some of marketing technique was already known as Search Engine Optimization (SEO). This story is useful to ilustrate how a blog must be marketed to reach its audience.
Here is the story (and its not yet finished yet).
Blog creation date

First move to register to google is register it in addurl section. Verified google addurl. Also check its diagnostic engine.
11 February 2007
My blog already crawl/bot on 10 feb. It is the time when I verified the blog. No info yet.
12 February 2007
Look for ‘add url submit’ keywords on Google, then add this blog to many search engine and/or directory. Local and foreign based. Not yet any info about this blog, even when you type the url. Still, no sign yet for Google result. When you put the this blog address (http://improve-it.blogspot.com), only result from myblog2u.com. See previous post regarding add/submit url to SE (Search Engine).
13 February 2007 morning
Only one result, same as yesterday. Still no sign of improvement. Many free add url submitter need us to activate, confirm, and (off course) check whether our email is correct or not. I guess some of the free submitter, is only way to harvest emails. This is true, cause some of the email confirmation, actually found on my junk mail. But, whatever it is, the confirmation continued. Also, cause I believe in Yahoo Anti Spam technology.
13 February 2007 afternoon
On 17.00, no improvement since yesterday. Already 24 hour. Check many times, only need improvement on meta tag on blog’s html. Afternoon, we are exchanging links with some of friends. Additional submitted to some SE.
13 February 2007 evening
Wow.. at last, after 2 days add url on google. Actually one and half day. Finally my blog address is listed on google. Check diagnostic engine, no crawl yet. Still data shown 10 Feb verified date. Strange. The only keyword that make my site no 1 are : "it-improvement in Indonesia". Other keyword can't shown this blog. :(
To be continue….
