Step 1 – Pick a topic that you can write a series of posts/articles on.

Step 2 – Start each post with the same topic name.

Step 3 – Give each post its own unique title appended to the topic name.

Step 4 – Name the post using both the topic name and title.

Step 5 – Write useful unique content.

Presto! Well, it worked for me, so with the right phrase it should work for you.

I didn’t intend to get a double listing by starting this series of “Starting your SEO Business”, but it’s a nice bonus. For every search I see it in the top 10 (in Google) we take 2 spots with the double listing. Try this query to see the double listing for yourself:

    Two Points! All you need now is the “Site Links” below the first listing and you’ll have an “SEO Trifecta”.

  2. I think you just coined a great term! Hurry and buy the domain!

    It obviously can’t work for everything, but I do think for 3+ keywords on a credible site you’re able to accomplish this.

  3. Nice tip. I would love to try it out myself and see how it works.

  4. Michael,

    This is one of the reasons for splitting up big topics:
    1. make each installment easy to digest
    2. keep your readers coming back for more
    3. added creditability from the search algos

    Now, getting the number one position for the added SiteLinks in Google, that could be more difficult.

  5. Good Idea Michael,

    Two comments though:
    1. Some people have their Google Setting to only show one listing per site.

    2. Not exactly sure that is what causes the double listing or the only way that double listings are sure. Look at this example of a search for your name in Google. It shows two listings from this site…

    I dont think that many people do this: “Some people have their Google Setting to only show one listing per site.”

    Great post Michael. I guess going along with Stephen it makes sense and its something I have done in the past – just never thought of the added bonus of 2 listings happening.

  7. Andy Beard says:

    I frequently get double listings from single posts just by using tagging.

    I have actually seen some of them in the lower half of the first page.
