When you search for "SEO service" in Google Japan, the #1 site for this big keyword is a site owned by a company run by 1 person. It's been this site being #1 for 4-5 months in Japanese Google. K, the person who owns the site, he actually talks about his technique on his blogfarm blogs!!! What he does is Soooo blog farming. He makes a bunch of blogs with free hosts. He says 20 for each farm or group. He SO obviously interlink them each other. At the bottom of his blog article, he put the link like this. |SEOBlog1| |SEOBlog2| |SEOBlog3| ......|SEOBlog10| He does the same on each blog, and he put a link from one blog of one farm to one blog of another farm. And on another farm he does the same thing... And he talks about SEO techniques on each blog. And in the article he says without hesitation that this blog is a "satellite blog" - a slang term probably used only in Japan(?) for a link farm blog, since they are circling the targetting site like satellites. Anyway, he started it 10 months ago, and ranked #2 in 2 months, and then keeps #1 in G for 4-5 months. He of course does have other external links to his site, by blog commenting or social bookmarking or things like that (as far as I can see), but his main thing is this blog farming. He also have several other domains, but they are all on 1 ip!! (He says so on his blogs so I pinged them, and, yes, they are on the same ips.) The craziest thing is that his site has only 2000 or so backlinks, while other top ranked sites(#2, #3 etc) have at least 10,000 backlinks. Imagine, this is the biggest keyword in Japanese SEO world. All other big SEO companies/individuals with white or black hat techniques try to get #1 on that keyword, and he got it with 2,000 backlinks... He says (when I write he "says", he write it on one of his blogs) that Google does not care 20 or so blogs farm, and also says it's important to update the blogs often with real content. He does so, by telling us what he does! OK, Question: Are we all pranoid thinking about different C-calass ips and the best way not to be found out etc...or is he walking on thin ice?
