    Wow, I'm pretty psyched right now. This is a site of mine that has been around for about 8 months now.

    I just looked at my visitor logs to see where my hits were coming from and I saw a particular search term (which I had been optimizing for).

    When I searched on Yahoo, I'm now at #4 out of 9,620,000 results. This is keyword sniping at its finest. What's nice about it is that I've used all white-hat tactics on this site...article writing, occasional stumbling, backlink building, directory submission, classified ads, Yahoo Answers, etc, all laced with two or three niche keywords with high search volume and low competition.

    The ranking has been slowly climbing in Yahoo. #1 here I come.

    Congrats man, that rank is nothing to sneeze at. Hell even if you can bump yourself up one more into the "Golden Triangle" you'll be pretty set for traffic ;-).

    I just checked and I am seeing some sales. This site is built around a ClickBank product. Anyone know what this means? It's listed next to my last three sales...

    "Customer Distribution Requirement

    ClickBank accounts cannot be used for the sole purpose of collecting rebates or otherwise extending credit to yourself or others. In compliance with US law, ClickBank will withhold payment of any account balance until it contains standing sales made with 5 or more different credit card numbers, including at least one Visa card, and one MasterCard. PayPal purchases do not count toward the minimum. "

    That's standard for CB - they don't send you a check until 5 different purchases have been made by CREDIT CARD, at least 1 VISA and 1 Mastercard, doesn't matter how much you make through PayPal, you don't get paid until you meet that requirement.

    Thanks, peeps.

    On Yahoo, the site itself is at #4 for the KW.

    On Google, my Ezine Article is at the bottom of the second page of results for the same KW. Not too bad. I don't really care. I've been getting butt-loads more traffic from Yahoo on all my sites lately anyway.

    Today, even better news.

    I have a totally different website that's now ranked #4 out of 14,800,000 on Yahoo.

    Congrats.

    The best thing with this kind of work is that your results should last longer. This is because your ranking was created through hard work, and deep and slow earned rankings.

    Your site will also have a better chance of not being slapped down by google. Keep up the good work, and make your self some money.

    Thanks, gurubaru. I'm giving that some serious thought, actually. I'll let you know.

    Congrats Monty!

    Hmmm...me wonders how much further a Geocites page and a Yahoo!360 blog would push your site up the search engine results? And it wouldn't be too hard to get that EZA article to rank much better.

    Here's a link to a post of mine on Cashtactics forum that may give you an idea or two:

    Nice thought. Thanks for the post too. I do go over there quite a bit, I just like to lurk.

    I'm also wondering if some Google Pages would help too. We'll see.
