Hey, This is my first thread,and I am here to share my knowledge on SEO if I have any. I have a movies site and I am ranking it above IMDB the biggest movie site ever. It took me around 3 months to get there. But I am happy now I rank for more than 20 keywords and daily traffic to my site is 20k on an average. I am here to share how I reached there. My site is a simple wordpress site, just I got a theme purchased and customized the theme a bit, added a slider to make it attractive. Created an account in facebook with a girl's Id. I just got famous in facebook with that Id. than I created a page on facebook about my site. i updated my facebook fanpage on a daily basis. I also added and made a attractive fbml page for the viewers to like the page. I got around 5k likes now after four months. I created a twitter account for the site and started tweeting. I tweeted about upcoming movies and #ed my keywords whenever I posted links. I got lucky sometimes and got featured in twitter also, that threw me heck lot of traffic. One thing to note in twitter is that behave genuinely, dont add links in every tweet you make. Tweet with links once in a blue moon. People will value your tweets. Since I have a movie site so I decided to create an youtube account also. In this youtube account I used group to make my videos viewed as much asap. I also used youtubetrain for more view counts. What it did to me is made my account on youtube strong. Now when I post a new video I get lot of views in a short span of time. I made some more accounts in myspace, digg and some other social media sites also. I was always active in these social sites. I drove traffic from these social websites to my own movie site. I also built backlinks for my site, but the number of backlinks that I made for my site was maximum 20 links a day..... and there was no rule of making backlinks... someday I used to blog someday commenting and sometimes forums... It was very random. The last and the most important thing which I was doing everyday is that I was updating my site. I added 4-5 movies daily on my site. And today I am happy with 20k unique visitors aday. According to me SEO has changed, ooops sorry Google has changed. Nowadays link building, content spinning, link exchange these has a very less value than the social media sites. My advice is that GO VIRAL on social media that will boost your site in Google. trust me with one of your site and than reply to me.
