This post is for the doubters: Recently about 2 weeks ago I started doing linkpushes on 2 sites of mine. Like many of you I was skeptical that linkpushes could really be all I need to increase in the SERP as it was too easy to just type in keywords and then my url and then push! Well today it has been about 2 weeks since I started pushing. One site of mine was a fresh domain that I needed about 3 articles on and did about 4 linkpushes on. The other site of mine was my main site that was recently penalized by google so I was trying hard to get this site back to page 2 where it was before. I did about 7 pushes to my 2nd site which got penalized and only 4 pushes to my new site which I did nothing else for. When I say I did nothing else for my new site I mean it, I honestly didn't do anything, it is an exact match domain (.net) and it has over 50,000 exact searches monthly. I did nothing to this site because I thought it was time to move on from SEO and go over to the youtube traffic spectrum. Recently I gave up on SEO and was just doing linkpushes to get my money worth. My first site which got penalized had no change. My second site which I is a fresh domain and I did 4 linkpushes on is now sitting on page 1 position 5 spot for a 50,000 exact searched term. I did NOTHING else for this site except, making the wordpress and then adding 3 articles and then doing 4 linkpushes. NOTHING ELSE, no other backliking NOTHING. You can imagine my excitement when I woke up today and not expecting anything just checking my rankings. Checked my first site, no change, no surprise. Checked my 2nd site which i've done no work for (seriously) only added 4 linkpushes and now its page 1. Honestly I am in shock. It is amazing how much 4 linkpushes, 3 articles with keywords, and a semi exact match domain can do. I have NOT been adding daily content or anything to this fresh site because I honesly gave up on it and was just using my linkpushes out. I did NO other backlinking. Now i'm page 1 and you can guarantee that I will be purchasing more linkpushes for next month and will be adding content 1-2x a week. WOOT! I can't believe this.... Page 1 for a 50,000 exact term, I never thought this would happen for this domain, I seriously was on the edge of giving up! But it teaches you something, that no matter how down in the dirt you are and how much you want to give up, NEVER GIVE UP; you are only a STEP away. This is what I realized and I will never give up anymore.
