Optometrists in Denver Colorado

I had a friend who was looking for an optometrist in Denver Colorado who didn’t have a phone book or Internet at the time and called for my help. He knows I’m always on the Internet and I can find him an optometrist in Denver quickly.

He actually asked me to find him an "eye doctor", and the first thing I started searching for was "Optometrist". After getting off the phone with my friend, I started being curious: Percentage wise, how many people search for Denver Optometrists and how many people search for Denver Eye Doctors? After some keyword research with the Overture tool (even though I know it only represents less than 30% of the Internet), I realized I was within the "norm" of other searchers. "Optometrists in Denver" is searched approximately three times as much as "Eye Doctors in Denver".

Just a random blurb about how my geekiness somehow accidentally flows into my social life.

Obviously you posted this about a month ago. I just read it, and decided to see just how high your blog was in Google for "Denver Optometrists". Out of 320,000+ results you were somewhere on page 15. Not bad for a random blog competing against a bunch of directories and doctors offices.

Try searching for stuff in quotes, such as "denver optomentrists", "optometrists in denver", or "optometrists in denver colorado", etc. I think I'm doing a little better there.
