    Did G00gle change they ranking system on May 1st? I was getting some unusually high traffic on one my website so I looked at my Awstats and I was getting lots of traffic from G so I typed my keyword phrase and I was #1 out of 175,000,000. It blew me away, I never thought this was possible. I practically gave up trying to rank with G because it was nearly impossible to be even on top 10 pages. I don't know how long my #1 position will last but I'll take it :)

    FYI my PR is only 1 and my domain is about 5-6 years old.

    How much traffic did you receive? Unique contents? What seo did you do?

    Thanks

    I'm getting about a 1000 visits/day.
    This website is on the 2nd page on Yahoo=Bing for quite sometime.
    About three years ago it used to on 1st page on Yahoo for several months then dropped back down. But on Google I didn't even bother to check because it was no where to be seen.

    I'm too lazy to write my own unique content, It's mostly scraped content.

    I did all sorts of promotions, whitehat + blackhat, Scrapebox(stopped using it 2 years ago), xrumer blast (done it 1 1/2 years ago). Haven't done any promotion for about a year now.

    When will people learn that # of competing pages means diddly shit. As far as keyword researching goes, using # of competing pages to determine if a keyword is worth chasing is completely pointless if your ultimate goal is to reach #1.

    Sometimes the search engine Gods throw us a bone! You have obviously done Something right. Figure out what it is and keep doing it. Good job and good luck!

    I guess I spoke too soon. My ranking is now #7 out of 180million, but still on the 1st page. I looked at the stats for the month of April and the traffic has been growing steadily from 350 visitors to 700/day and then all of sudden it jumped to 1000/day in May.

    My income from this website has increased 3 to 4 times the norm thanks to Big G.

    Now you'll be inspired to keep it there. Keep the content and backlinks coming and soon you'll be at the top again.
