Hi, I am here since several years now. I read everything on a daily basis, patiently. I learn a lot of things, but I found my way, and my way is not in the method you post. I want to share my experience. How to rank while raising interest of your visitors? This is the key question. If you do some backlinking, you will not go very far. If you write content to write content, this is the same. This is not SEO, this is pure SHIT. I do not care of my "reputation" here, I dont care to have one star or more, this is not my goal. I am just saying that most of SEO is pure shit, because almost nobody ask themself the right question, the only good question that you must think about: which content is interesting for PEOPLE? By people, I mean human people, not Google's ones. Several monthes ago, I started my 44th websites. But this time, I though differently: Google, fuck off. I just took the area I hated more, the worst area for me, for personal reasons: Banks. And I started to write. Tips 1: Just take an area you HATE. You will understand why and you will say "thanks" later. Then, I started to write first posts with my heart. No keyword study, nothing. Just some posts, according to my feelings. Tips 2: Follow your heart and find a fight. A real one. Being 1st on Google is NOT a fight. Find a real one. Obiously, my blog was read by... nobody. Okay. So let's go to the real part of SEO. I started to think deeper, to "really think", and I started to visit some HATED blogs and websites about banks, and the websites of banks, including major ones. I read everything, from the grammar mistakes to contracts, noting all questions and mistakes in a notepad, noting everything, noting the relationships between websites, noting relationship between their CEO, etc. All data were consigned in a small program for macosX, it is a kind of Xmind, but it is better as it enables to draw relationships between all kinds of entities, WITHOUT a HIERARCHICAL structure. This is the best for me. It produces a global map in your area. I started to draw a map of the banking sector, day after day, and it became very huge in a few days. I acted like a "killer". I mean: my will was to do some harm regarding a full area: banking system. How? Just by gathering more and more data. After two weeks of work, I had a lot of data, and my graphical mapping was very huge. I mean: you can't print it on A4 paper. This is the big overall map of all banking relationships. Tell me a name of a CEO of a bank, there is a good probability that I have it on my map. And I will tell you: "Hmmm, he is a friend of XXX". And it took only two weeks to build that, but nobody has done it before. Tips 3: Concentrate on your work, especially on what you hate more. Two weeks are nothing. Stop to watch TV or to build blogs. Build your spirit and your HATE. Once I had the map of "everything", I just post it. First, partly. Then fully. Guess what? Nothing happens. I was sure that my paper and my articles on my blog were very interesting, but without the relevant visibility, nothing happens. So, let's go for the visibility. Tips 4: Find allies This was my next step. Guess what? Everybody HATE banks, including owners of PR5 blogs. You should know that if you ask to a lot of bloggers to publish a *** study ***, a REAL well-done study, regarding banking sector, they will answer : "good job, this is nice! Of course I will publish that, we share the same worries!". This is one of the best tips ever: focus on what everyone else hate, and propose an unpublished content, a real one. My big mapping regarding banking sector was published on at least 35 websites. For 25 of one, with a link. The other ones became ennemies as they stolen my content. So... guess what? I published an article about these new ennemies, accusing them to stole a full work without citing their source. And it worked. This new article has been published by 10 new websites, creating an earthquake on the MAIN websites in this sector. Everybody told me: "you are crazy, you will be sued for that". But I didn't care of that: when you are sued, you have always a short time to remove everything and to say: "Ok, I understand, sorry about that, I removed everything". And i was all days on the good side: I publisehd a new content, and it was taken by good guys. And I fighted. Tips 5: Attack all bad guys, your courage is your force The way you write is your force. But you must learn to write, this is paramount. You can do EVERYTHING if you know how to write, believe me, it is THE big weapon. Tips 6 : Investigate Take the time to investigate about the area you hate. Start in the SEO sector for instance. You publish a new website? Do an analysis and list ALL websites talking about your topic. Then, classify them, see which websites are only here to win money with bad content. And publish a map or a table with all websites and a comment. Try to find the owner, as for most of websites, as soon you find the owner, he will feel destroyed. Search by Google Analytics ID, and list all websites belonging to him, and list all websites (without links) on your website, telling that... he is not an expert, he is a bad SEO guy, he is an opportunist. People hate that. Destroy all parasits in your area, and be on the same side of all main majors of your area. As soon as I started a new website, I am doing a mapping of all 50 first websites in my niche. And I am destroying them (except main players) on my websites, with all the relevant concrete elements and proofs. Then, I propose this content to legitimate big websites. It just works. I am just doing the job that Google should do. I have not your expertise in backlinking, in SEO, in cloaking links, and in ADsense. You are far better than me for that. I know it and I see it everyday I read all of you. So, with the time, I developed one thing: the hability to be critics and to detect weaknesses, and to tell the truth: many websites well indexed by Google are pure shit, and the number of people behind every area is very limited. I am just exploiting it, this is why PEOPLE like what I write, and this is why I can have 50 PR4/5 backlinks without doing any SEO. All the best guys.
