Hello fellow BH'ers. First off let me say thank you to all of BHW for helping me get to where I am today. I have been working primarily on CPA and adsense, but recently I came across a keyword that happens to be one part of my life/passion/hobby, whatever you want to call it. I love this subject so its easy for me to work on it. Basically, My main keyword has 950k search results and 40k global monthly searches, And my keyword tails all have 200K or less search resluts with about 20k monthly searches. From what i've learned on these forums this is a decent keyword right?. So I started a blogger on blogspot and my KW is my sub domain (which is good for SEO?), and Now for my main KW im ranked in google at spot 500 and out of 950k! and one of my other keywords im at spot 160 out of 150k search results. I was pretty psyched when I woke up this morning and saw my search results becuase this is my first SEO site and I made it a week ago with blogger. lol. I did do a backlinking service to this site (thanks to wyzo) And I put a twist to my blog so i get about 40 backlinks everytime I post. Now that you kno what im doing, I was wondering what do you "seo experts" suggest for ranking onto the first page. I understand you can backlink from forums, blogs, article directories but what is the most effective way to raise your google search rank? I have a store setup with this website so I'm hoping to get on the first page and make bank lol. I hope I'm on the right path and if this works out im going to invest in hosting+domains and do another niche to grow farther. And to whoever may help me, I am a firm believer in karma and the term "pay it forward" so who knows, if i hit the jackpot i'll definatly be paying it forward to the people who helped me and who provided me with good services. Thank you BH'ers and happy IM'ing.
