I've mentioned already that I started a blog eight days ago, search-engine-optimum.blogspot.com. In addition, 5 days ago, I registered the domain name "search-engine-optimum.com", and the next day,just 4 days ago, I posted a holding page to it. Today those two sites, between them, occupy positions 1, 2, 3 and 4 on page 1 of Google's results for "search engine optimum". Wow! And that's without any advertising, the only promotion being some mentions from yours truly, here and on twitter and Google+. It shows that it doesn't necessarily take 6 months and require a huge and complex operation in order to achieve significant results; though it might have been a bit more difficult if a phrase had been chosen for which there was more competition, and in general 6 months or so should be the time frame to aim for.
Add to that the honorable mention on webook.com, and overall it's been quite a week. All it needs now to make it perfect is for fregobo to genuinely become the next Facebook killer. :-)
