    I thought this was kind of interesting and at the same time it may help some new people out.

    I found a keyword phrase that had about 1,900 searches a month. As an example "why do birds fly" (not my actual phrase). I made a title like "Birds Fly: Why do Birds Fly?" and wrote a short article. I added the article to an existing Blogger Blog. I pinged it then set it up in my favorite link builder. Good to go, right?

    Here's where the mistake came in...

    When I checked it a couple days later, I found out I had entered the target URL in my Linker with a missing hyphen. Oh SHI#!!! It was already building links to the wrong URL. I quickly went to Blogger and found the name for my original blog was now available without the hyphen. So I grab it, copy and pasted the exact article from the old blog to the new blog. I made the keyword phrase (3 times in the article) link to the new post and added two new links to the old blog (not to the same article). Then I pinged it.

    Remember now, this is a brand new Blogger blog that only has one post on it and it is:

    #1 - for the full article title in quotes (163 comps)
    #4 - for the full article title without quotes (31,600,000 comps)
    #7 - for the keyword phrase with quotes (407,000 comps)
    #10 - for the keyword phrase without quotes (3,830,000 comps)


    Kind of makes you think twice about things like duplicate content, quantity of content, the age of sites and free blogs.

    Sorry about the font color.

    No eBook, I explained exactly what I did. Was there something that wasn't clear?

    are you still there?

    You often rocket straight to the top with new content (especially using free blog platforms) but dont stay longer than 1-3 days....

    Hey guys! The OP meant well! He did something very clever and acted fast when he found his mistake. A pat on his back for that! :)

    depend whether that keyword really had a traffic or not... if you got traffic from that keyword that that is great!

    LOL, you guys kill me! Some seem to think because someone is new to this forum that they just discovered the Internet.

    I put up the new blog on July 18th (over a month ago) and the standings have done nothing but improve. BTW, they are the same this morning as they were yesterday. I agree, the comp. is weak and I expect my keyword phrase will keep moving up because of that.

    Nothing to get excited about, just interesting.

    Ignore them dc101, these people are morons. Thanks a lot for the post, made me rethink my post titles/tags since I was using quirky ones rather than titles built for SEO.

    Nirose, how disgraceful!!! If you think you are any better than that guy to call him a noob, then look @ the mirror.

    I would rather read ur so called noob's thread that is posting his results than an arrogant noob that knows shit...

    The whole concept of duplicate content is a myth. Unless you are doing some major blackhat, then you are not going to get penalized.
