Google’s EMD Update – Setbacks and Moving Forward

Update Feb. 14, 2013: I have not touched this niche site since the Google EMD update occurred in late September, 2012. Currently, my site gettingridoffleasnow.com is ranking at #122 in Google for the keyword – getting rid of fleas. It is sitting at #162 in Google for the other main keyword – how to get rid of fleas.

I do have some ideas for adding content and possibly boosting this site in the rankings before this coming summer. Summertime is typically when more flea problems occur, so hopefully I will have time to work on this site a little bit more before then.
