Getting 2 Birds With One Stone

I have a question from Mariam [Anti-aging Diets] wanting to know how to get listed twice in the top ten SERP’s.  This is when you have your page in the top 10 and another listed page offset directly under it. This double listing is very cool [also classed as getting 2 birds with one stone].

  • Use Identical Keywords

We will assume for the moment that you selected your niche and long-tailed keywords [LTK’s] carefully and already have one page in the top ten SERPs.  Then to repeat that, you have to optimize another page with the identical keywords and with an equal dose of linking authority, and  internal site linking.

  • Double  Listing – AKA, Double Indexing and Indented Listings

Double Listing
Double Listings are also known as Double Indexing and Indented Listings.
Double indexing can also refer to the situation where you have the same site listed twice, once as http://www.whatever  and again without the www in the URL. A Double Listing with the indented listing directly below is the ideal. Another good example of getting a double listing in Google SERPs is this post from Lissie [search on Site Build it Scam Review] which opened up the whole topic of Scam Reviewing of affiliate products.

  • Good SEO

Google ranks each page on it’s authority for the keyword being searched.  This authority is made up of relevance, plus the authority and relevance of the incoming links to it. So to get onto that coveted top ten page you need to apply some SEO to your page and get your keyword coherence in place.  That means placing your keywords correctly; getting your internal links set up as in “Rocket Your Site to No 1 in Google“; and setting up some quality backlinks, as in  Grow Your Links Like an A-Lister.

  1. Its really amazing that your blog is ranked 1st & 2nd in Google for keyword phrase “How to get listed twice”. Such twice ranking for high searched keyword will do wonders for any website. Before I have seen websites 2 pages ranked for same term and I had no idea how they achieved that. But after reading this post, I at least know their secret. Thanks for such a detailed and well written post.

    I don’t think you can because an address is unique, except maybe get one listing for the street address and the second for a Box number (Read this)

    Don’t know about Google shake ups, but all my prime post keywords are still Number 1, Double Indexed, and Trust Ranked as well. So I must be doing something right

    Since there are million of websites in the world, it is really hard to get listed twice in the top 10, especially for the competitve niche. SEO is the most important tool to improve a site ranking.

  9. I am really surprised that more websites do not take advantage of this strategy. If you can dilute the SERP’s with your listings, you are pushing one more competitor to page #2 and you are likely to get much better click through rates.

  10. Indented listings are quite harder to achieve than what might others say. Seems like you really need to come up with a new post or idea, that will somewhat, connect to your already ranking word or phrase.

  16. If your site is tightly themed around a specific niche, you often get double listings naturally. You don’t have to do all of the link building all over again for the second page.

  17. Do you follow Stompernet folks? They talked about this double listing thing in Google a couple of years back. If I remember correctly, the trick is to do internet link building on a page that you want double listed (ie. point a link from all of your internal webpages to that one single page.)

  19. I found this article while looking for more info on double indexing. I just ran an experiment on the term “Silver Bullion Producer” and some related terms. I was able to get 8 out of 10 of the front page results, with three double indexes by using various interlinked domains. I also got an extra 5 on a drop down menu “see more results from” I’ve been documenting my experiment on my blog as Silver Bullion & SEO (multiple posts). It is pretty fun, but the key phrase is obviously not to competitive.

    I do not follow. I think that I am doing something like this, but I am not quite sure. I do try to use the keywords again on another site. I will keep reading to see, if I can learn more. Sometimes I get it and sometimes it takes me a little longer to get.

  32. Exactly mate. It’s been a real hard work for me to get on the top. It would be lovely to get a second link up there! It’ll require some work but hey! It’s worth it eh? 🙂

  33. Well i believe the ‘starter’ should be ranking #1 first 😀

  34. Sandra says:

    I must be doing something right because I have been following what you say to do and everything is doing great. I was having a rough time of it until I found your page. Other people do not give you the full view but, you do. It makes life alot simpler.

  36. I’ve seen a lot of posts here about whether there are any good internet classified ad sites. I’ve found about 21 sites whose ads appear in Google SERPS. If you use good SEO on your ad content you should do well with Google in these sites.

    I am going to share some ideas to get double indexed on google..
    1-Pick a new subject or a long less used niche related keyword, and write an article with that in mind.
    2-Next you want to spin(rewrite) that article and submit it to sites like Squidoo, e-How, Hubpages and etc. Make sure you leave a couple of link in the articles with your keywords as your anchor text.
    3-Wait about 24 hours or so, then write another article on the same topic as your last articles, but make sure it’s unique, and don’t forget to use your keywords.
    4-All that is left to do now, is to go back to your first article, and use one of the main keywords as an anchor text to link back to the second article. If you want you can bookmark both articles as well, it will give you a boost.
    5-It takes time, depending on the competitiveness of the keywords you use. Depending on your skills on using the right keywords in the right places in your articles, it may take a while. The more you do this with your niche keywords, the sooner you will get double indexed, and the better you will rank.

  38. All information is incredible and I am sure people must have got valuable and effective knowledge from this post.

  39. This double listing is very cool. We will assume for the moment that you selected your niche and long-tailed keywords carefully.
