    I dont want to reveal my niche but I will give as much info as possible:

    my competitor's site is a partial EMD. by that, I mean imagine if the keyword was "A B C D" competitor's site is BCD.com
    keyword spamming: this term was definitely invented by google to scare people from using it. there is no such fucking thing. this guy uses the keyword like 200 times in his 800 word homepage. you cant even read the damn thing, every other word is this keyword.
    backlinks: all garbage directories. nothing else, just directories.
    google authorship: about 2000 friends in his circle. I suspect they are all fake.

    this guy has been kicking my ass recently and i dont get how.

    One of my competitors has the main keyword over 70% in his backlink profile and rank on top 1. It's weird too!

    One of mine has aids and its ranked #1.

    Seriously, our biggest competitor has 70% of his links from the same page and other 30% are just crappy 20 word spinned texts. So, conclusion is that google is crazy.

    You guys need to "free your mind"

    Stuff like anchor text variation and other non-sense theories are garbage. Spam still works. Up is down, down is up.

    Just do everything the opposite of what Matt Cutts says and you'll be fine.

    Experiment on your own to find out what works. Don't take what you read anywhere for truth. Only believe what your own testing has found.

    Good luck.

    ^^^^^^^^^ this exactly. do your own experiments, split testing on different websites. Once you find something that works, just do it. Explanation?

    1) nobody knows the exact google algo, so no one can be sure of how to rank a website in theory.
    2) something that might work for one website will totally not work for another one.
    3) someone who discovers a loophole in G's algo will definitely not come and share it on a public forum for G to patch it up.
