on which she is the #1 authority.
would like to be the #1 authority.
She'd like to do this so that maybe some peon over at the Discovery Channel will stumble across her odes to Mike Rowe while they are Googling, say, who is covering the 150th Dirty Job Extravaganza, which airs October 23 from 9-11 pm ET and then point Mike in her direction. To celebrate Mike's 150th dirty job, the Discovery Channel is airing an all-day marathon of Dirty Jobs episodes. This is a good time to be Googling Dirty Jobs.
I know you Discovery Channel employees are out there in Google land, looking for Mike Rowe buzz, so you need to go see Heather, The Queen of Shake-Shake and all things Mike Rowe.
We gotta help a mutha out folks. It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it. Here's how we're going to do it:
According to the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) research I've been doing to promote TopBlogMag and eBay Selling for eParents, Google gives higher rank on search results pages to websites it deems to have some authority on the keyword being searched. Higher search results listing means better odds of Mike Rowe Googling himself and finding the Queen.
One way to aid those search results rankings is through anchor text. That means stuff like this:
Look no further than the Queen.
Think Mike Rowe is sexy? So does the Queen. Just ask her.
Want to know if Mike Rowe is married or single or dating?
Well, the Queen is married, too, but a girl can be curious.
Want to see pictures of Mike Rowe shirtless?
I imagine the Queen may someday build a shirtless tribute to him, as she thinks he is hot. Actually, she thinks he is "hawt."
Trying to hunt down Mike Rowe's biography or MySpace page? Share it with the Queen when you do.
Now, when someone searches those terms, Google will link that text to the Queen of Shake-Shake in it's little cyber mind and move her blog posts toward the top of the results... and one step closer to Mike Rowe showing some love to a mommy blogger who has a dirty job or two for him to consider.
*For the record, we are huge Dirty Jobs fans here. I watched enough Dirty Jobs marathons while I was pregnant with Goose that I will be shocked if he doesn't grow up to be a pig farmer. The number of times we admired Mike Rowe's voice-over work on Deadliest Catch should alternately guarantee that Pants will become a voice-over guy for the Discovery Channel, too.
In fact, Pants walked up to a pile of old, rotting firewood yesterday and announced, "Dirty Jobs time." before he started sorting the pile into toddler-specified distinctions. Oh yeah, it's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it.
