SEO Mad Scientist 🧪🥼🔬

Welcome back to another quick update with the SEO mad scientist.

We’re going to take another look at our current ongoing tests around the GBP website link and then go over some things we found and some new tests that we’re working on to try and get some clarification on our findings.

For the past few weeks we’ve had an ongoing test where we changed out the GBP website to our private website and built a couple inner pages, to see the results on rankings. This site is essentially a copy of the GBP website, but hosted on a private domain.

Last week we submitted our URLs to webmasters and as of yesterday it looked as if they still were not indexed in the public index. This may have been due to the fact that the website we put up was an exact replica of our GBP website, which could have caused it to be filtered.

So we resubmitted the pages for indexing yesterday and as of this morning it looks like we can now see a few of these pages indexed. Even our duplicate of the homepage GBP website is showing despite the fact that they both have the same content…

Even though we haven’t seen any indexation of these pages in the public index until now, we have seen correlated ranking increases with every part of our test that we’ve implemented.

Changed GBP URL to 1 Page private website URL (Rank Increase)
Added keyword targeted inner pages (saw movement for 2 out of 3 keywords)

We’ve already speculated that there could be some type of private index that may have caused ranking fluctuations when we first published the website and added it to the GBP.

However, now that the inner pages are indexed, it’s time to let the SERPs do their thing, then review the rankings next week.

Let us know what you think of this test in the Local SEO Community!

Until Next Time,
Happy Testing!
