Goodbye, Manchester!

A couple of weeks ago, I gave up my flat in Manchester City Centre and committed to touring full time.

I got notice of my landlord’s intent to sell the flat in June. I wasn’t sure if it would mean I had to move, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do about it. But by the time I was served my sixty-day notice, I had already decided that I wanted to be free of the flat and I wouldn’t be looking for a new one. Rents have gone up in Manchester in the three years since I first signed that lease and I didn’t think that it made sense to pay about 1000 a month just to keep a flat that I only used when I wasn’t touring. I’d gotten used to having the place as a pad to relax in, meet friends from, and store a ridiculous amount of stuff in, but I had come to believe that it would be better to alternate intensive weeks of touring with intensive weeks of relaxing at home with my family. And so I have taken the plunge and cut the tether holding me to Manchester.

Another reason for this change is that I have decided that I ought to stop advertising in my local community. I have always shown my face in adverts because I think it reassures clients to know exactly what they will be meeting, but there’s a lot of risk in doing that – and the consequences could be suffered by family members. So, for their sakes I have been assiduously trying to remove all traces of myself from local searches. Ironically – after several months of trying to rank high on Google and not getting above page four or so, I have discovered that I finally achieved the fifth result on the first page whilst I wasn’t even trying. Removing meta tags from pages and photos will hopefully work in time.

I’m not really sure how to SEO my website now that I am in no fixed location. I see that I’m doing very well for “Independent Escort Oxford” and “Independent Escort Glasgow” which is nice. But I don’t think that really gets the phone ringing all that much. In any event, I’m never going to be able to suddenly appear precisely when I am in any given location so I don’t think that I will particularly bother with SEO for now. I see this website and blog as supplements to various directories like Adultwork and Vivastreet.

I have been having a lot of fun considering where to tour. As well as revisiting old favourites like London, Glasgow, and Oxford, I also like to try new locations. Just last month I made my first visit to Aberdeen and last week I was in Hertfordshire. I will be returning to both places!

I actually have hotels booked up into early February but my plans change so often that I won’t be updating my touring schedule on here more than a month or so in advance.

For every tour, I like to send out an email to my newsletter list letting them know exactly when I will be in town. Sometimes I have special offers for subscribers, as well. So, if you want to be kept up-to-date, please go over to the left side of this page and fill in the subscription form. I promise there is no spamming and you can unsubscribe at any time!
