I have done some research after the August update and it seems ranking on Google is now easier than ever. It just needs some skills and money to be invested. Results are guaranteed tho. Here's my guide: 1. Look for domains in the pre-release or auctions on sites like godaddy, namejet etc. 2. Don't go for expired domains. These have no value as per my research. 3. Look for domains which have backlinks from sites like wikipedia, huffingtonpost, NYTimes etc. 4. Relevancy does not matter. You can buy a church domain for a weight loss product review site. 5. Bid on such domains and try to win them. 6. Create a new website with your niche and see it rank high within a months time. 7. Make crazy money and run away before Google fixes this. It works 100%. Just make sure that the domain is not dropped and has good backlinks.
