Artistry Cosmetics Google Searches
I get a lot of hits from Google searches looking for “Artistry cosmetics” or “Artistry cosmetics Euromonitor”. Undoubtedly some searchers are IBO’s or their potential customers and they’re looking for product information and they come across my page about Artistry and realize it wasn’t what they were looking for.
I decided to check it out. When I put “Artistry cosmetics” into Google my blog is #12. If I add Euromonitor to the search criteria its #5. The top page hits ahead of my blog are Amway propaganda pages about Artistry and a couple of IBO’s looking for customers. Or that’s my best guess. I didn’t actually click on any of those links. I’ll let IBOFB do that and report back if I guessed wrong in case he thinks I care!
I decided to try Google in a few other countries and chose countries with languages I understand:
Canada, United Kingdom, Mexico, and . Similar search results with Euromonitor about #4 or #5, but typing just “Artistry cosmetics” the other countries are #8 showing up on Google’s first page. Spain
OK now I’m sure IBOFB is going to double check those countries Google search engines and come back to announce that my page has slipped to #15 or whatever and say that he checked a couple of random countries like Siberia and Iraq and my post about Artistry isn’t even on the radar.
As I already said I think some hits are IBOs looking for product information and then they leave when they see my blog wasn’t what they were looking for but many visitors stay awhile reading my other posts. That tells me IBOs or their disenchanted spouses are doing what I did and looking for information to find out if the speakers from the stage were lying when they said Artistry is one of the top 5 cosmetics companies in the world.
If you read my previous blog about Artistry and the following comments IBOFB shows up and says that according to Euromonitor Artistry is one of the top 5 prestige cosmetics in the world. Well I’d never heard of Euromonitor until then and thats probably the case for many people on this side of the
Atlantic. In fact I thought it was a magazine but it turns out to be a market research firm. Perhaps Amway should have used an American market research firm whose name would be familiar to people on this side of the pond.
I never ever heard a Platinum, Emerald, or Diamond speaker say Artistry is one of the top 5 “prestige” cosmetics. They always said Artistry is the top 5 best selling or top 5 best in the world.
After IBOFB gave us a few good laughs about how Artistry is in the top 5 prestige cosmetics companies the comments turned to what women are looking for when buying cosmetics. No one considers “prestige” when buying makeup. More important considerations are price, selection, and quality. That’s how women select their cosmetics. We like to get good value for our money.
Bottom line is it doesn’t matter to me where I end up on the Google search engine. My blog serves as healing tool for me to vent about our sponsor and upline and the financial and emotional distress that goes hand in hand with being involved in the cult but I wonder how Amway feels about my blog being right behind the top hits about Artistry propaganda. A lot of people seeking information click on my link and see:
a. I prefer
b. Artistry is too high priced
c. the Forbes list of the world’s top 10 selling cosmetics
d. a bunch of funny comments about prestige makeup
If the readers are not too brainwashed that gives them something to think about. Namely they discover the speakers from the stage lied to them.
