Happy Black Friday to everyone in the US! For those not living in the US, the Friday after our Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year. Stores open early (some at midnight the day after Thanksgiving) and offer ridiculous discounts on everything for a few hours. People storm the stores at all hours of the night to  grab bargains and it's pure chaos so it's called Black Friday.

But I'm not here to talk about Black Friday. I have something more exciting to share…

As you know I started posting some tips on building a powerful presence on LinkedIn and I hope you're learning a lot (and taking action).

I only posted two tips so far and I decided to do a search on Google to see if my posts showed up. Here are the results of my search.

supercharge your LinkedIn profile

I rank number 3, 4 AND 6 for Supercharge Your LinkedIn profile!!


how to make your LinkedIn profile searchable

I rank number 4 AND 5 for Searchable LinkedIn Profiles. That's 5 first page rankings in minutes!

How did I do it? First of all I use WordPress for my blog and I have some cool plugins that help my SEO. I've been using WordPress and SEO plugins for years and I've had some great SEO results. Now it seems like everything I post goes to the first page of Google in minutes.

Whats' changed?

I recently switched my theme to the Genesis Framework from StudioPress.com and it's improved my search rankings instantly. The Genesis Framework is powerful but easy to use and I highly recommend it. Enter code THANKS at checkout and you'll receive 25% off all purchases until November 28,2011.

Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite WordPress theme and SEO plugins are. I'll compile a list of your favorites and share it with everyone.
