    Hey everyone, to those of you are still a little iffy with your ranking abilities, this is what has given me some positive results. I would still consider myself a "noob" in this industry, but I have at least been around long enough to know that these three factors are what can make or break you...at least in terms of the big G.

    1: On site seo.

    -Keep that keyword density between 2-4% (everyone has their own number, 2-4% seems to work well for me)
    -I try to shoot for at least 750 words per page. The more the better although sometimes it's not always easy write more than that.
    -Within the content, use as many synonyms as possible for the keyword your trying to rank for. This will let the big G know what the hell to rank you for.
    -Optimize alt tags with the keyword, but don't overdue it. Once again, use synonyms if you have a good deal of pictures.
    -Adding a video and picture to the page seems to help.
    -Link to at least one authoritative niche related website, and link to at least one other page on your site.

    2: Content Rich Backlinks

    -Make sure you're backlinks are content rich, at least 500 words (once again, the more the better), synonym rich, and have a picture and a video where appropriate. In my opinion (which is very debatable) even if you have a link that fits this criteria but is from a crappy website, it will still pose as a good backlink. This is why there are spammers who are good at what they do, and spammers who deserve to get punched.

    3: Anchor Diversity

    -Sticking to this sort of general outline will be good enough. The most important thing though, is keeping that primary keyword below 20% (thanks to that darn meddling penguin). Even 10% is a good rule of thumb now of days.

    I am no "expert" in this field (yet) so take all this with a big ol grain of salt.

    This post I found at the edwinsoft forum was also an excellent read, I highly advice you thoroughly check it out and take notes!

    I limit my articles to only 500 words and with a keyword density of 2-3%. These are great tips. Thanks for sharing!

    500 words only? Isn't it usually the more the better? Or Have you found that 500 works just as well as 1000? If that's the case, I can surely stop breaking a sweat over trying to create these long articles for the sense of them being long for SEO purposes.

    Everything else being equal, longer articles are better.
