First page of Google?

I absolutely LOVE the new telemarketing calls I get. Out of the first 15 words, they always include the 4 words above: first page of Google, which is the holy grail for those seeking to net some fish out of the big www ocean. Heck, I get so many calls because I am early in the alphabet, there must be something like one thousand other people on the first page of Google. I mean, how big is that page anyway?

Seems to me you can set how many results come in per page when you use Google to search. I’d guess most people have it set to 10 results. Then if you are #55 on the list, you would be on page 6 or something. UNLESS you had 100 results per page. Maybe that’s how they say that you can be on the first page of Google. You just expand the first page to include many many results.

And they want you to pay them for that, right after you enjoy your 30 day free trial.  You didn’t expect free SEO did you?

While we are on this subject, why would someone work hard to get on the first page of Google if they did not have a website that created phone calls and email inquiries? Some of the top 10 or top 100 sites leave me cold. They are not easy to use, have a bunch of agent-centric info and cannot seem to make me feel welcome to return anytime soon. Now, this blog/website you are reading from right now is not the best, but I hope you find it useful and easy to navigate. And you are welcome back anytime, whether you feel that way or not.

First page of Google must be the new “On the Cover of the Rolling Stone” for knowing you have arrived.
