It’s almost Christmas Eve, the kids are in bed and I bet a lot of you are getting ready for that final stretch of gift wrapping. Maybe this year instead of doing a botch job you’ll do a search on Google for “How To Wrap A Present“. The strange thing is nobody is advertising against this keyword right now.

I would think this would get a lot of searches over the next 24 hours and there’s got to be some business that would benefit from being seen against this term. For instance if you are a local gift store and are open tomorrow you could advertise that you have wrapping paper or will even custom wrap gifts. Seems like a missed opportunity.

As I mentioned in Seasonality & SEO so much of the competition does not take the time to market against seasonal terms. Maybe one of your 2008 New Year’s Resolutions will be to give it a shot and get some more business.

    Hmm you are very right here, on the seasonal SEO. I just did a check for a seasonal phrase for our business, and sure enough the majority of our peers didn’t do anything in this area, a couple of small firms did and made nice rankings! Nice tip…lets see what we can do for Valentines.

    Maybe because nobody is searching for this phrase? Google’s traffic estimator says there are only 2 clicks a day on this search term 🙂

    Could be but the day before Xmas I got a pretty good number of referrals from Google for this phrase.
