    ...and if the hypothesis proves out will then work on a specific marketing plan which I will present to BHW as a marketing theory. No guarrantees and the whole hypothesis thing may well turn out to be pure unadulterated shit.

    The hypothesis questions the value of going through all the work required to obtain Page Ranking on The Big G and other search engines provided that appropriate and effective methods are used to drive traffic to the chosen sites.

    I will freely present the results of my handy-dandy little survey and any theory which emerges

    Any input will be greatly appreciated and this vassal will be indebted to you for your replies.:)

    So basically you're trying to answer whether complying with Google's webmaster guidelines is worth it or not?

    Simple answer -yes! Do everything they say and the stuff that contradicts it!

    Create a nice clean site with good content, but build backlinks like crazy to outrank sites that have bad content and are messy and are ranking higher.

    Might work?!

    Thoughts:

    * G is the most used search engine so anything they do/think matters, after all this is the world according to Google. That being said white hat page rank develops over the age of a site. I know of a site up right now with the main k/wrds searched 18K worldwide and it has been up a couple of weeks, position number 4 on G. Expect #1 slot soon. Page rank = 0

    * Paid media eliminates the endless G crap and instability that goes with it

    I look forward to your hypothesis.

    If I undersatnd you correctly, you are saying that Google ranking is important becuase of the traffic it can bring to your site?

    I am almost of the opinion that The Big G has the entire world bamboozled unless a website owner is solely depending on traffic to come to the site from searches and I also think that doing that would be a slow internet death. :eek:

    I think it is ok to start with....but to get a stable income you must continually check and hussel - my phrase - for position. Either that or you have to include other sources of traffic that are paid for or how can you scale? You will be limited to the number of searches for that term/s no matter how good your seo.

    SEO does give you the advantage that your website can be found and $$ earned without paying more money. So if you end up in hospitial comatose you have something even if it is just small.

    Include the backlinks and this isn't a death, but it isn't optimum if you aren't checking your sites analytics, conversions/adrevenue, organic search position etc and tweeking.

    Excellent points and I do not mean to suggest that SE results are not important but am thinking that they cannot and should not stand alone,:D
