    I think, all this SEO stuff is just a myth. It is more your luck :) I have a pretty nice website. I did all on-page SEO as well as off-page. However, still my website is not on 1st rank.

    The 1st rank website is (chatdude.pk) for the keyword "pakistani chat rooms". This is not competitive word. I did all the competitor analysis and this website scores less than mine. Their HTML code is also crappy and contents are copy past. The backlinks don't have keyword in them.

    How Google can give them 1st rank? Where is SEO now!!!!


    I am not here to promote my website :) So PM me (if you are interested) for the link of my website.

    FYI! I have some other websites. They rank #1 for many good medium competitive keywords. However, I do not know why this website with crappy on-page (one liner text) and off-page SEO is still at #1.

    Maybe experts over here could point out any strong point of this website. ?

    You've been a member since 2008, why are you acting like such a newbie?

    Maybe if you didn't quit SEO for 5 years then dive back into it, your website would be ranking.

    WOW! Time flies so fast. Thanks to you all guys and BHW! I learned a lot here.

    I am just wondering, what is the strong point of this website? Why this website is #1 with crappy stuff :/

    SEO matters.. If you plan to use white hat tactics and want longevity.

    No matter what you think, the search engines take the keywords off your page and not what you think they are, then a link is a link. But... and a big one, a keyword that is EMD makes a foot print, but a link is a link.

    So what is going on is that the page is using links that do not contain the keywords, but use links.

    You want to rank for "Cats," try keywords: "Mice," "Elephants," "Dogs," "Catnip," "Nepeta," etc. because a link is a link and they will not leave a footprint that is easily discovered (except by URL).

    Cool down! Sorry if my post offended you.

    Could you put some light on the issue as well? What do you think? What is so special in their website to keep the #1 rank? It does not have many backlinks and unique contents. Better websites than this one are ranking below them.

    I think OP has a point. SEO is not all luck, but with all the randomizing patents and complex ranking algorithm, there's is bit of 'luck' element involved. But as with any profession, more you know, luckier you get.

    SEO nowadays is all about authority. I want you to forget everything you have ever heard about SEO, and just create a website like you had no clue what Google was. Now go through and do some mild changes. The next step is getting visitors, you can hand out fliers at your University or around your city. After Google bots pick up that your website is getting natural traffic, it will try and help. The big G will give you authority, then people must respect your authority.

    Just my blurb, I am not saying this is correct -- it is just how I do it! :p
