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! http://forum.edwinsoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=800 Cheers.
