    I can see your claim around position #4 is correct for the keyword and I applaud you for that - thats some sterling work!. Trouble is though, it seems your server is having trouble handling the many thousands of visitors - the site won't load at all for me......

    ahh - i'm in....only took 3 minutes to load! very nice site - no use of the H1 tag though on the inner page I tried?

    I did a quick check. There are around +2000 backlinks. Not sure which way you go to build backlinks. How long can you achieve that position?

    I hear you on that one - both the work invoved and indeed the freebies - I have a designer watch site which is doing well in ranking terms and have the annoying problem of companies sending me in new models to review - what can you do with em eh?!

    Haha yeah isn't that great? Like my other blog is a PS3-site, and getting all games for free lol..even hardware and i got a PS3 from Sony..debug one.

    I just write a article about them like 900 words..and keep the stuff. The freebies are the most amazing thing i think..i mean ofcourse i can CPA lock it or anything like that but that would just ruin everything..i just go on like this steady and well and getting one of the biggest blogs about the iPad in The Netherlands =).

    Well good luck to you - it is always encouraging to see when hard work pays off!

    Out of interest I note your link profile is quite interesting; you only have a small proportion of links (compared to the total) which has 'ipad' in the anchor text - I was discussing this earlier in terms of the number of 'correct' anchors to have to make the link profile look natural - your site is another good example of what natural looks like and clearly the G loves it....

    I think you need some On-page SEO to be done on the site..Currently it is not perfect (Eg: No H1 tag etc)

    On-page SEO has been done already, everything is looking sharp.

    I am not saying you did not do it.. I am saying it is not perfect. I am assuming yours is not auto blog. If it is autoblog, then it is fine though ()!

    For example in this page

    Code:
    http://www.ipad-sense.nl/2010/10/special-must-have-jailbreak-apps-deel-33/
    1>There is no H1 tag
    2> Images have Alt tags but they are not optimized ( automatically generated)
    3>Extra 'Home' link in the Navigation bar.
    4> Did not make use of H tags/Bold tags to highlight keywords

    There could be more but those are the ones I found in the quick analysis!

    Hey, congrats on your success. I hope to find the same one day soon.

    I would also like to know if it's an autoblog. As for tips, I don't have any... however, I'm eager to read what others may share. You're obviously doing something(s) right... I would love some tips from you. For a 2 month old blog to find that success, that's awesome IMO. I would love to get so many "tester products" that I don't know what to do with them. hehe
