Ranking #1 in Google search (for Solfej)

Shayan Javadi @shawnjavadi

Solfej is the first result when you search for the keyword “solfej”!!

This may not seem like a big achievement, but as a newbie with SEO it means a lot.

The funny thing is I thought I knew about SEO, but turns out I didn’t even know what a backlink was before I started Solfej.

    Great work 😛

    Congrats, and it actually is important - often people just type the name instead of URL.

    It's sad to see when new entrepreneurs think that picking a single English word as a name is a good idea, after they've found some free marginal domain for it. Then they wonder why they rank on page 72 of the search results. After 2 years of SEO when they reach page 1, they get slapped with Cease and Desist letter from trademark holder and need to start from the beginning.

    Congrats. I will have a tougher time with Hashr, being also a verse of the Quran, reaching the #1 on Google for my own branded domain may be very tricky!

    Kudos to you though!
