    What do you guys think the best way to rank #1 on google for your keyword presently is?

    Rank it:

    1. Strong Backlinks ?
    2. Articles ?
    3. Web 2.0 ?
    4. Unique Content?

    For the immediate future that anyone can imagine, Strong Backlinks will always be the most important part of ranking your website. Then, with Backlinks being close or equal, whoever has the most original content that actually appeals to visitors will take #1.

    Here are the most important things about ranking that many people overlook:

    Time on site, bounce rate.

    If you have 5,000 pages of original content, but the bounce rate for all the pages is over 90% and you have an average time on site of less than 30 seconds, obviously people don't really like your site so google will demote you even if you have higher authority based on backlinks.

    I would say all of the above, then throw some blog and forum spam in the mix too. :p

    #1 Unique content and #2 backlinks (high quality).

    In addition to what KickFlip said above. Bounce rate (low BR) is particularly important and especially so if you are using Google Analytics and you are sharing that analytics data with Google.

    Also for blogs/forums the amount of discussion between blog commenters is important as Google has "Discussion" results which are often easier to rank for than the usual web results.

    Blog commenting on your site forum discussion all come under the heading "Activity" btw

    Just curious do you guys think bounce rate is really that important to rankings? Also is this only relevant if you have Google Analytics on your site? What if you turn off the "share data with google"?

    Its hard to classify them... First in my opinion High PR Backlinks then Unique content followed by bounce rate, web 2.0 and good on page SEO.

    I personally think it is huge, and I think Google is more likely to favor a site which they have more data about, so a quality site with Analytics installed should rank higher than a similar site without it.

    I agree bounce rate and time on site are very important and increasing in value. This
    is why if you noticed they both have their own button on Alexa reports.

    1) Backlinks
    2) Backlinks
    3) Backlinks

    All the awesome content in the world don't matter for shit if you can't get backlinks. Content only helps you get the links that get you the rankings.

    yes. G has plenty of information (think of Chrome, Google Toolbar, even firefox and so on) regarding bounce rate ... even without Analytics on the site - they still have e good statistical Information about it.
