My brother decided he wanted me to learn SEO and do my best to get the website on page 1 of google, or more realistically as high as possible, I took the SEO training course on Hubspot, worked hard using all the information I'd gained and 3 weeks later (this morning) we hit page 1 of google with a total spend of £0 admittedly there's not as much competition for window cleaning and cleaning services in terms of high quality websites and their resources to keep working on SEO, but it's still a great achievement, 2 months ago I didn't even know what SEO was!
https://cleaningworx.co.uk/ is our website and google search was, window cleaners in St Albans
I'm wondering how successful others have been, what their experience with the training was, for me it was very simple, lots of reminders and little quizzes to keep the memory going, it's been 30 years since I left school so I did worry for my learning capacity!
I couldn't be any happier.

Nice work @SGibbs! I think there's an opportunity to optimise your maps listing too... when people do a localised search, say for window cleaner st albans Google will usually show the maps listing as part of the SERP.
I really love BrightLocal's blog for info on how to do this sort of thing. This post is a great place to start: https://www.brightlocal.com/learn/local-business-website-optimization-guide/
Good luck mate! 👍

Way to go @SGibbs! That's such a great story.
For me, my early success came when I started building a brand for a mortgage bank early in my career. I ended up with top results in one of the most competitive industries I knew of back then, buying and financing a home. In fact, 10 years later and some of my content still ranks very high for the right keyword topics. And for me the training was a lot like you describe, plus simple trial by fire. The more you do, the more you learn what works and what doesn't work. Keep up the great work!
