I confess that I have been pursuing Google for nearly a year now, doing everything I could to get noticed. Sometimes I got a nod, or maybe a flirtatious wink, but more often than not, I would find Google spending time with others leaving me to wonder what a girl has to do to get a little Google love. Hey, look at me! I have value! I have worth! I'm embarrassed to admit that in the beginning, I even paid for a little of that love. But I knew there had to be a better way! So I had a total make over to bring out my best features and lately I've spent long hours getting in shape, toning up my content and tightening my up my key words. And, I've been reaching out to others, learning everything I can so Google would find me interesting, informed, and relative.
So last night, bolstered with a sense of confidence, I went searching for the big G at the hottest spot in town. I couldn't believe my eyes! Not only was I on G's dance card, I was at the top of the list on the first page. Number One! Numero Uno! I gushed with excitement and wanted to shout it to the world. You like me! You really like me! I opened a bottle of my best cheap red wine and celebrated our new love. All my hard work had finally paid off. I just knew that if I took my time, and didn't push, that Google would eventually see things my way and we would be together 4-EVER!
This morning when I woke up, I was still hung over from the night's celebration, but I had a smile on my face. The birds were chirping and for some reason, the morning light seemed just a little brighter than the day before. But as I looked around I saw that Google was gone without so much as a note. It was as if it had never happened. Was it all just a dream? Had my passionate desire to be G's #1 played tricks on my brain? No, I saw what I saw and what I saw was real. I was there at the top of the list, ahead of all the others who had captured so much of Google's time and attention in the past. So how could it all be over so fast? What possible explanation could there be for what I saw this morning. Once again, Google had forsaken me for others, relegating me and my hard work to a distant 3rd page.
My one night stand with Google was exciting for sure and one that I can openly talk about now that I have had some time to think about it. Some day, I might even tell my grandchildren the story of how I made it to the top of Google's list that one December night back in 2008. But like any of life's experiences, there are lessons to be learned. And if I learned anything, it is that Google is fickle and suffers from some serious commitment issues. Will Google ever change? I doubt it. So today, it's back to basics as I remain resolute in my goal of once again being Google's number one.
