    Hi,

    I want to write review article for keyword "best LED TV" Can I rank first page without doing any SEO.
    I will write 100 unique articles. Will Google rank my site still I need to do SEO?

    Because one of my site got sandbox by Google while doing SEO. I have 10 unique articles 8 month old. Need advice can I continue to post unique content on the same site without doing any SEO. Will my site recover.

    You'll be doing SEO without even realizing it by having good, unique content.

    If you have a nice layout that keeps visitors to your site clicking around, if your site gets linked to naturally because of the material you provide, if you make nice and attractive titles, you'll be doing SEO that will win in the long run and you won't have to freak out about google algo updates.

    If you got sandboxed, it's because you weren't doing SEO, but were spamming and using not unique content.

    You absolutely can recover the site if you redesign it and put more work into it. New articles with larger word count. Less of a sales-oriented site.

    Put in the work, and though it might take a bit more time, you'll succeed

    I would recommend doing on-page SEO in addition to adding content. It is not a tough work and can be learnt easily.

    For SEO. The easy way would be to hire someone...

    Otherwise the "easy way out" for me is a Wordpress plugin called "Yoast". It's like having an SEO consoult standing over your shoulder giving you direction as you create content.

    Hi
    I think doing SEO is crates a strong effect and most speedy way to get Google rank rather than you do posting few unique articles even it's need when you compete with a highly competitive kw.Just hire some SEO specialist who can better understand the SERP strategies.
    Regards

    Yes... you're going to rank somewhere regardless. I have seen some of the crappy sites out rank well optimized ones... Crazy. But I don't recommend it, usually with good on-site SEO you're going to get consistently better results than just slapping up a webpage and calling it a day... I take it one step further and do keyword density, which Matt Cutts says is a was says is a waste of time of time... yet when I spend the extra time more often than not I'm getting a good result. Humans are humans, we all say things to make ourselves sound smarter and we all lie... the key is to be honest with yourself and what works.

    You can rank without SEO but thats really a rare case. if the keyword is very less competitive and if the presence of high PR sites in that topic then its possible.
    but you can rank well if you start Manual SEO and post high quality posts.

    why your site got sandbox man? if you get high quality backlinks slowly with drip-feeding method, you'll be fine. But you need a great patience.

    one of my sites has thousands of unique articles but it has no backlinks, that's why it is not on good rankings
