In MSN they went from number 56 to number 6 with that same keyword phrase. That is awesome!

How did they do it? They followed the steps in the Mentor Program and learned how to add great content to their website!

"For one of my keyword phrases which I am working on in the mentoring program, it is #1 on MSN!  It was #80. Wow! and thanks.."
