Here in this thread I will explain how I work for my websites. Not even a single of my website got hit of Panda Penguin or any update. Google is updating since 2007, I mentioned 2007 because I am in the IM from 2007 don't know what happened earlier to that. The tactics or the things that I follow are very simple and old ones. Only the difference is that I work according to the change in the rankings. I change according to Google. Google has an algorithm that one one knows and I have a strategy that even I don't know. I am just sharing what I usually do and how I bring my websites up to first page for keywords related to niches like:- movies, loans, ads etc etc.... I hope these are some tough areas. Let's move on:- After making my website live I give my website a bit of rest, around 2-3 months. In this 2-3 months time period I just keep on adding content to my website whenever I liked, no specific timings. I kept on checking the SERPs though, Did not find in top500 in many cases. I prefer taking old domain, at least 1 year old. Now moving on after 3 months..... I will build a facebook fanpage and add it to websites like youlikehits.com and addmefast.com for likes Then I add the page to the website (normally everyone does these things) Then twitter and do the same thing with twitter. (integrate it with the website and add in twiends and addmefast etc websites) New but powerful Google Plus account is what I like to create and also a button for my website. Socially I am almost done.... After Social Stuffs:- I take out all the inner pages from my website with the help of Parameter(software) and then I index them. (These are the pages that I added to my website in the last 3 months) Now I prepare a chart of inner pages for whom I can work. I take around 30 pages with 30 keywords. (Excluding the homepage) Starting the Offpage:- DIR Normally people say directory submission is not worth nowadays, But I do it for every website. I submit all those 30 inner pages to dir submission websites, promoting my 30 different keywords. I do some submissions for the homepage also, maximum of 20 approved submissions. I do this stuff for some days, when I see a fluctuation in rankings I stop the work. After I submit the directories I give my website a bit of rest, a 3 days rest occasionally. FORUMS Forums play the most important part in my SEO. I just don't go and post the links as my signature or promote my url in the forums. What I dis in the last couple of years is I built some very good forum profiles. All my forum profile has more than 100 posts each in 100 top forums. So when I post my website there with the anchor text I get a good value in return. Those who lack in this, go for it. Web 2.0 I don't know why people are nowadays stopping to do these stuffs, I am continuing with it. Every week I write a new article and post it to one of the web 2.0 properties. I put 2 link there, one pointing to my website and the other one of wikipedia or any other high authority website. I never tried to make a link wheel out of the web 2.0 articles. Press Release One PR every week gives me good amount of traffic, so why not take the advantage. I keeps on doing all the above quoted things in a very random manner and has never been dissapointed. I never use one or two keywords, I always go for the well being of the whole website taking the maximum targted keywords I can. If you guys want just good traffic to your website for selling it in flippa, I will show you that in my next thread. Thanks for reading guys. Questions are always welcomed.
