I'm new to seo, I'm trying to rank my site http://www.matthewhars.com for the keyword "headshot" I'm a photographer struggling to make ends meet

This guy ranks #2 next to Wikipedia for keyword headshot and he is a PR4

peterhurley.com

Alot of his content has the keyword "headshot" also my site is in flash which may hurt it. I was thinking of creating a linkwheel to a blog post about headshots. I'm really clueless as where to start. Any advice ??

Thanks in advance,
Matt

I'd hire someone in your position. If you want to do it yourself, you better start reading.

Shoot for geo-specific keywords since you're a local business. Ie: headshots chicago

Yup, first remove the flash. "getting hurt" is an understatement,
trying to get ranked with flash is next to impossible!

Well, if you must keep the flash in the root, you might do well to get
another of your sub pages ranked for the term "headshots" ..... i.e build
a non-flash page with www.yoursite.com/headshots/

Then put a link from your main root page to /headshots/ , then subsequently,
start building anchored links to your headshots url instead of the main root.

If I were you, I wouldn't use flash in the first place as the whole site.

...oh yah and dude you have a really nice flash page :)

nice looking flash site but lik eothers said, try doing away with flash.

also try a more longtailed keyword such as headshot photography or headshot photographer new york or something.

good luck

Oops u created another thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/hire-freelancer/137372-search-engine-optimization-expert-name-your-price.html

Anyways you can always hire or make link wheels with anchor text.. USE keyword variation and angela backlinks for this.. trust me you will get on no.1 in no time ;)

Btw, how did u make that flash.. and wats the music? nice work!


Thanks man ! I use an xml driven flash template, I actually tweaked it in flash with the colors and a little bit of action script the music is a Kayne west remix I'm really good at web design but I suck at seo lol Thanks for the advice

You have to put it without the http in order to have it in the correct format.

Hmm lets see:

First you have to do a keyword research:

To rank on a word "headshot" wont help you, it will be like fighting with the devil.
Trie looking for some long keywords with the main keyword "headshot", by the way you should also consider that headshot is widely used in games for killing someone with 1 bullet in the head :p

For example trie looking for keywords like this photography+headshot+yourcity or similar, just keep on searching with 3 words count or more. (you will have to learn how to make a good keyword research for better results)

Ok next, you will have to make some blogs, i would prefer using free ones like blogger,wordpress and etc....
Make some articles about your hobby and link your keyword with your site.

Next make some other web2 properties squido,google pages, etc... find them and do the same, "DONT USE SAME ARTICLES" spin them but always in the text have somewhere refering about the keyword and link it with your site.

Next make some videos, and upload them to youtube,metacafe and etc.In the video mention your site, in the profile of the video mention your site. (Thats some nice organic traffic by the way)

Next make some profiles on myspace, facebook and twitter. (Trie making friends for each account at least 100 at each account) There are some bots that do this stuff.

Finally you will have to do bookmarking :)
And when i say bookmarking you would probably spit your eyes doing it manually :D
Ok here is the trick, trie at least making around 50 bookmarking accounts for each bookmarking site for example make 50 accounts on stuble, 50 on some other and etc....

THEN when you have made it leave them for at least 2-3 days and get a tool or service which will do the next:

Bookmark everything you have made excpet your own site!
Here is how to exactly:

from 50 accounts you have use only 15 of them to bookmark:
videos, blogs, and articles you have made.
(Ah also i forgot to mention to make some articles to submit in the ezine and etc.. service)

When done bookmarking, take 10 other accounts and use them to press i like it or have a look at your bookmark.

Leave it for some days, do the same process with some other accounts.
Also in the myspace, facebook, and twitter send a message for looking into your blog,video or etc...
LEAVE IT FOR A 5 DAYS.

Make some new articles, put them on blogs you have made, submit them on ezines, make 1 new video.
Do the same process again, bookmark, post on social websites.

Do this for like a month.

Then upscale it!
(meaning do it all from the start, re-make blogs, articles, social website account, web2 properties squido-blogs etc...,make new bookmarking account and then do them all together)

This is painfull process and takes a little bit of time but will do the job.

Oh and get rid of flash, or just use some partial flash for your site, and dont forget to optimize your site.


Hm... well that should be it, back to work now. Hope this helps someone :)

By the way i forgot, on the site have a field to register you your newsletter.

So every time you take new pictures, just go into your newsletter make a nice little message
"Hey guys i have putted on some new images check them out : "yourwebsite" "

And push the button :)

lol It is posible to rank on that keyword even when your site have all flash or all images , no text! All this SEO game is BackLinks Building. You can rank #1 if you have better backlinks then your competitors!

Good luck mate!

well,all i can say is that it is very easy to outrank that site.yahoo site explorer shows just 120 backlinks to his site.So it is easy to get more than that.Just keep focussing on backlink building and you will do it easily.

You have 2 options here...

1) You can hire someone
2) You can spend time and energy to learn

Read as much as you can about building backlinks to your site.
