Google No 1 Position - We're getting there!

I logged into my Google Webmaster Account (which I'm always telling you guys about) and I found a lovely surprise awaiting me. I was on the first page, position 1 for "SEO Blog Nigeria"!! I mean like wow! I definitely didn't see that coming so soon. And no, it is not an April Fool's Joke... This is my first milestone in my life as an SEO blogger, so I just have to blog about it and of course take shots as proof, ;-)... After all, with Google you have no idea what will happen next!

I'm sure a lot of you are wondering what I'm going on about! Well basically the screenshot says it all... On Google Nigeria (, I should be found in the first position for "SEO Blog Nigeria", however the general Google domains (.com, and others), I'm in position 2 give or take a spot or two. This is really good news for me because my blog is only about a month old so it's really amazing! It just goes to show you that SEO does work!! That said, I know Google changes positions more than I would love to buy shoes, so I won't be too surprised if I'm knocked off this position in the next few weeks. But I will still continue doing what I love, SEO blogging, so fear not!

Disclaimer: If you have Google Personalised search turned on, these results may vary according. If you're not sure whether you have personalised search on, then you definitely do. 

I'll be covering Google Personalised Searches in one of my future posts, so please stick around.
