The day we ranked #1 in Google

The day we ranked #1 in Google:

Okay, so this morning I received this text message from my pal Greg (of eagle & chicken fame):

Number one ranked in Google, Celebration, Survive at Work, your one stop resource for work skills, work resources, work tools and work motivation. Hate work? Want promotion? Survive at work will help you thrive at work.

Yes it’s true… SurviveAtWork.com is now ranked first on Google!

That’s number 1 out of the 218,000,000 results which come up when you search for survive at work.

My mind is blown.  Two hundred and eighteen MILLION results… and we’re number 1!

Let me hear you say WOOHOO!!!

It was only back in September that we were celebrating being number 1 on Bing.  Back then, you’ll recall that number 1 on Google was an aspiration… albeit a seemingly unobtainable one.  Since then, we’ve gradually crawled up the rankings, consistently being kept from the top few slots by a few results that appeared to be anchored there, due to the fact they’re “big boy” sites like Life Hacker and Amazon.

Happy Monday #30

It’s Monday!!!  Good morning… and happy first Monday in November 🙂

Before I present this week’s Happy Monday, I wanted to share a quick note about the site.  You may have noticed (or not) that the home page no longer includes Happy Monday posts.  Instead, they now have a nice little Happy Monday space of their own… if you have a quick peek to the top menu, you’ll notice a entry of its own on the top menu (next to “Blog”).

In addition to making it easier for you to view all Happy Mondays in the same place, this also frees up the homepage for our other posts – meaning you don’t have to wade through a barrage of chirpy Monday offerings to find that post you think you might have saw once on overcoming procrastination.
