    Curious to know how many people are ranked high on Google search engines.

    And what was your best method to get there.

    Yes I am. My best method was to provide unique content that is targeted at that keyword.

    Yes. Few directories. Articles. Low competition though and it's a long tail.

    Ranked on the first page for about 98% of the keywords I am targeting. Focused on the long tails first.

    Yes, quite a lot, mainly due to my own unique content and in some cases because I have a lot of very interesting comments for a particular article which adds a lot of free content to the page. Google likes unique content.

    But one of my articles is just a duplicate and it is at #2 for that keyword phrase. And just below it at #3 is one of my own unique articles, so it just goes to show that having duplicate content is not always a bad thing.

    I'm ranked #1 & #2 for just about every keyword I work on. Sometimes I control as much as 8/10 of the top listings. All depends on how much effort you put in.

    Things I focus on are:
    - unique content
    - link building
    - proprietary technology my company designed :) {DO NOT PM FOR DETAILS}

    Yes, my first affiliate site (been up since 2nd Jan 2009).

    Ranked 8th on Google for one of my secondaries, 12th for primary and 12th/30th for other two secondaries. 4 (primary)/7/7/7 on Yahoo for same keywords/pages. No backlinks worth writing home about (bookmarked front page with OnlyWire and Digg, and two crappy links on LinkMetro) - 3 showing in Yahoo, none in Google. Just SEO on a shuffled Amazon page...

    20 unique clicks since 8th (when indexed and ranked, went straight in at those positions above) and 4 sales.

    Just purchased some backlinks from Dimension, so we'll see how that goes. Gonna give it all a rewrite with a bit of unique fluff, and some sales patter. See if we can increase conversions and get it on page one for primary (secondaries are still quite well searched, though). 6,560,000 pages "competing", if you believe Google.

    And yes, first post (woo). Figured it was time I stopped lurking.

    I am #3 for a 2 word term with about 1/2 mil in Goggle, #1 in Yah00 and #1 in Live just using page optimisation and adding some backlinks.

    I find that typing the phrase into Goggle and checking how many backlinks the #1 site has gives me an idea of how many I will need to get to beat them (roughly).

    Oh and welcome to the dark side gtford :D

    Checking the map now...
    Home Page:
    I also have a number of page one results for literally hundreds of keywords... good seo, good links and great content on the site.

    Always attempt to "own your category online" We all know who we need to beat online, now just do better, offer more, and always, ALWAYS get the high conversion long tailed kw's for your niche (category).

    These are all organic results and depending upon the site I get 100's up to well over 1000 visitors a day from Google searches. Just keep doing little things and it keeps getting better...

    yes I have no1 or no1 and no2 spot for about 20 different search terms
    proberbly more as I only targeted 10 of them the rest are organic from my content and i keep finding them

    proberbly the best from non targeted is a very generic term
    which is coming up 12th out of 27,200,000 results in a search
    from the uk.

    i have lots of social networking site backlinks which seem to help a lot
    and have recently posted a free game i comissioned to a lot of
    freeware/shareware site which has given me over 500 links so far

    also something i stumbled upon was making a page on the site just for
    testing google results, this page has the search term and a google link next to it to test it,
    it oftern lists second to my homepage giving me 2 listings on the same page :)

    Icecubes..
