Our blog on search engines

GREAT NEWS!

Since we started a blog, we have been working a lot, to bring word about environmental protection on tropical islands… We presented a lot of islands so far, and, logically, some of those articles are visible on search engines such as Google and weaker, but still decent ones such as bing, yahoo…

It is heavy competition, but we managed to get on google on the first page for several posts, even at top rankings such as 1-5 places! We present to you one of the most notable articles:

The Duke Group Archipelago – It is currently the second number on the first page in Google!

sometimes it is second, sometimes third… But always at the top (for now)…

According to the analytics, most of the people here who read our article about this archipelago are from Australia, USA and UK. Article is here   https://tropicalislands.net/the-duke-group-archipelago/

Motu Matatahi – This small islet is also in a good position in Google. Regardless that it is small in size, it was quite popular for the last few years, and it was present in many articles worldwide.

it is on 7. place on Google. As a bonus, it is specifically tagged by google in pictures.
As we can see here, when filter pictures on Google, we see that our site is actually present in 16 places!

Articles about island can be found here  and here https://tropicalislands.net/motu-matatahi/ and here https://tropicalislands.net/motu-matatahi-association/ (I was part of Motu Matatahi Association as their Island Consulter)

Malima Islets – FIRST ON GOOGLE SEARCH! Those are lesser famous islands, but located in awesome position because its first neighbors are famous Vanua Balavu in Fiji, VatuVara Private Islands  (VatuVara, Yacata, Kaibu and Kanacea; owned by billionaire Jim Jannard. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, while royals spent the night there), Mago Island owned by Mel Gibson, Katafanga Island (Fiji Airways/Air Pacific started from there), famous and ,,heavy category class islands”

it is in the article alongside Kibobo and other islands resembling ones in the Maldives.

 

Pinaki Atoll – this small, cool atoll is on 4. ranking on the first page.

Wailagilala Atoll – 8. place. This one is relative famous as it is considered the only ,,true atoll” in Fiji.

This is just a regular search on google. We do not even count tons of images from various islands in our articles scattered across Google. For bigger pictures, we have gallery https://tropicalislands.net/our-blog-on-search-engines-gallery/

I made a list of other top rankings, including bing and yahoo. Because Google is the top search engine, being on the first page means a lot. The second is Okay, decent, and I included even the third page in lists (which is barely satisfying). In some exceptional cases I put 4. and 5. page if those islands are of ,,strategic” value to us, as I put lot of effort to write about them, and they are famous. Regarding Yahoo and Bing, only the first page is included, since they are much weaker.

And this is us, responsible for this. I am writing articles, doing researches, images etc… My Sonja is an expert in SEO, and hosts this site and does technical aspects of it. It is also worth mentioning my close relative, Ivan Komatina, an IT sector expert, who is here partially ,,from time to time”, giving us advice from his area of knowledge.
