I have re-created this post about Cheap Cruises as my main income is from cruise related websites.
I am currently working on Cruisez.
Recently I spoke to one of the large cruise travel agent companies about their website; it is in tatters due to some things; one being poor link-building and the other being an Exact Match Domain name. I had a theory on exact match domain names and tried to explain it to them; alas they were not impressed! However, they used it.
So I am now looking to rebuild a new Cruisegle; albeit with a different website; Cruisegle was an old site of mine that ranked highly for various cruise related terms including cheap cruises. It is also my Twitter handle Cruisegle.
The aim is to create a new website to get back in a position to sell cheap cruises like its sister site; well not quite sister; it is more a previous incarnation. The old site has long gone, but the lessons I have learned from it will help with the new site.
I digress; what I plan to do with the new Cruisegle is to supply leads to a travel agent who specialises in Cruises; I think I already have one on-board; forgive the pun! He is the one who bought another old site of mine that used to rank at the top for cheap cruises called Cruise (plus one letter). I am not allowed to post the name due to a trademark. Now that is another story that I need to write about at some point in time.
Cruisez or some other domain I choose to work with will hopefully keep the Wolves from the door so to speak; alas it will depend upon hard work from me; well not hard work but long hours. Saying that I often start work at 7.30 am and finish after midnight only stopping for meals and the loo!
Not sure why; but this page is ranking in the top 40 for Cheap Cruises; putting a lot of websites to shame including my clients. But then, this site has not been hit by a penalty; just yet! I guess it will drop off over time and end up back where it belongs; somewhere out of reach of prying eyes.
I will say that this little snippet will probably cause the drop as I have now mentioned the search term too often within the text; I never like to go above 2.5%.
It is now December 2016, and I have still yet to start Cruisez… I need to get a grip.
