I've been trying for weeks now to rank my website. I've placed all the right keywords, created decent content, and built backlinks through comments, forums, bought some from fiverr, and other tools, and I still don't even rank in the top 100 for my desired keywords.. What's the secret these guys are using? I don't believe it's all about content and asking people in your niche to link to you, this guy somehow manipulated the search engines to rank on the first page of google for keywords like "online guitar lessons" for this page shredsource .net/online-guitar-lessons (remove space, can't post url's) As you can see it's a very transparent page with affiliate links. what is he doing? 18,000 backlinks, from where? Can someone please give me some insight, or point me in the right direction? Anything, a Udemy course, an ebook, just anything that will actually help me. Not the extremely vague garbage I've been reading up on now.
