Here's what I've found to work with limited results since the last update: 1. using keyword in domain (gets quick positioning but dies quickly if there's competition) 2. using keyword spamming (same effective, positioning shoots up for 1 or 2 days and then drops 3. replicating articles without rewriting them and keyword stuffing (again, it might work for a day or a week but I've found these things die quickly and then later seem to harm the site in SERPS). What I've found that HAS worked well. 1. I've been running GSA for almost 3-4 weeks straight building rank to the website. I've indexed my main website with google master tools and I use a simple wordpress theme from Elegant Themes. When running GSA I use my keywords as anchor text and and ahrefs.com to monitor my progress. I rewrote articles from sites that published daily content relevant to my niche and only left one keyword at the bottom of the webpage that served as an internal link. I've done this maybe 30-40 times so approximately once a day. This method was working slowly but it wasn't gaining me any lasting exposure until a combination of one of these two things: 1. I signed up for an indexing service besides what GSA SER and pingdom and pingler can offer. 2. I made sure gsa doesn't get me links lower than PR1 3. I posted all of my posts to FACEBOOK to my personal profile. Once I released a post that people started sharing I put $8 in to boost my results on that post. That led to like 300 clicks, about one hundred shares, and 12000 impressions. It happened to be about an upcoming phone. I noticed in particular that after I had done that facebook post thing I jumped from 3rd and 4th position where I was sitting up to first and it stayed there. I could be wrong but I believe there is a correlation between social traffic vs organic visits that gives preference to sharing or referrals from social media sites.
