On a handmade WordPress website done as a “work for food” project for a friend of the family, we are still achieving “over the top” results in 2011. For the phrase:
Our website http://centurycafe.com ranks #2 in the Google main index behind one of the most world famous bakeries in the world – the Magnolia Bakery. Now Magnolia has been on magazine covers for many years since it was featured in a popular T.V. series “Sex in the City”. It’s got almost 1000 user reviews displayed from the busloads of tourists that are dropped off there on a daily basis. The website we promoted is a small Chinese Bakery on Bowery Street between Grand and Hester.
- there are a dozen world famous bakeries in Manhattan that all rank below the site we built for our friends
- there are 6,000 web pages that Google reports with the phrase “Manhattan Bakery” in their title
- we have never paid for a link or solicited any linking scheme ever
How did we outrank all those world famous bakeries in Manhattan?
- The design is stunning and the high resolution food and architecture photography is the best you will ever see on the internet.
- This website does 10 to 15 GIGABYTES of bandwith a month
- We pioneered the website image feature “Click it 3 times to blow it up“. That means you can click any photo you see on the site and expand the high res image to the point where a single chocolate covered strawberry can take up your entire monitor in perfect focus with exquisite detail. You literally cannot stop your mouth from watering when you “Click it 3 times to blow it up” on some of our Web Design WorkPlace food photos.
- We use WordPress so Google loves the site because of it’s internal linkiness and other technical features.
- We used On Page SEO to carefully hand tune the search engine optimization
- We built a website that has over 100 pages with over 1000 photos !
- Google Images favored the site and promotes the images in their image directory. We get a lot of people to the site from Google Images
- We have as many as 50,000 unique visitors a year
