Hey BHW I have never made any post explaining step by step how I rank my sites, and I thought maybe this thread could be useful for the comunity. Since constant Google updates started I rarely point any tool directly to my money sites but sometimes I like to make case studies like this one. As title says the goal was ranking first for a 60500 Exact searchs a month keyword, I will try to give you as much info as possible. Site age: 1 month old CMS: Wordpress site Posts: 2 Rank Proof: As you have read the site is one month old, this is the SEO work done: - The very first thing I did was optimizing my OnSite SEO, I installed All in One SEO plugin and kept good keyword density on the site, I made sure all was ok according to SEOMoz tool ONPage SEO check results. - During a week, I writed and submitted 2 unique articles each day and submitted them to authorithy Web 2.0 sites, making a total of 14 submissions on 14 different sites (weebly, wordpress, angelfire etc) - After that I Social bookmarked all Web 2.0 sites, between 200/600 social bookmarks to each Web 2.0 with a random different quantity of bookmarks to each Web 2.0 At this point I was ranking on second page, but half of the Web 2.0 werent indexed in Google. -Now I did something I rarely do as stated before, I started a GSA search engine ranker campaign directly to my site, I made sure I kept good filters for it since is pointing directly to my money site, I am using only PR 2 or higher sites to build links on, no more than 35 OBL links and of course the bad words list activated. However I didnt put a limit on daily links, so GSA is building all daily links it can. I am using all this engines to build links: - After that, I wrote and submited 14 unique articles more to another 14 different Web 2.0 sites during next week, and social bookmarked them as I did on the vey first week As you can see results cant be better, I am sitting at #1 for more than a week now, and it seems the site is getting stronger day by day, I am getting a TON of dailiy targeted traffic to my site as you can guess. I wanted to start this thread to share my success with my fellow BHW members, and showing you SEO is NOT dead and you can achieve what you want, testing, working and taking action is the only secret to succeed, good luck to all with your projects, feel free to ask anything you want.
