    Here is the full story-
    I just launched my first Adsense site few days back. I found a keyword that had around 1500 exact search and registered the .com with full keyword without hyphens or numbers: like keyword.com i built a wordpress site with 2 posts, sitemap, privacy policy, about us page. I was indexed in 2-3 days and within a week I was on first page of google as there were only around 560000, results for that keyword.I was initially on 8th posithion then I started some link building and moved to 6th position, 7th position is my post.

    Few days back I saw that someone with .net domain is on page 2 and next day his site was just under me at 8th position. 4 days after i noticed his site in SERP's he got no.1 position. thing got me worried, I checked his records, within 17 days of registering a domain name he was no. 1, His site is one page WP blog which is MFA (Made For Adsense) site only as it only has Adsense ads above the fold. other than that he has aboutus, p.policy, contact us, sitemap.

    Then I checked his site credentials.
    Domain registered- 05/04/2010
    yahoo backlink- 3 ( just a digg submission which gave 2 links and third link coming from his same site footer.

    My credentials:
    Domain registered:02/13/2010
    yahoo backlinks: 95
    google backlink: 77

    I also kept updating my site by adding content and self commenting. He seems to have made the site and left for earning.

    One more thing The theme he is using gives me a sense that he could be a BHW member, because the WP theme he is using is known to me, I saw it in a video in downloads section in which someone was talking about MFA sites and showing an example of a site on 'quinni zippy chair' or something like that. but i am unable to find that thread. probably there could be some SEO technique discussed in that video. Since he is using the same theme so may be that guy is from BHW as I am sure he has used some Black Hat technique to get to no. 1 in such a short time. If the guy is from BHW then probably he can share how he managed to do this.

    I am not sure whether i should post the url of the website or not so at the moment i am not posting the site url but for those who want to see i am posting an image of his website which throw a lot of information.



    Can you tell me what could be behind his being no. 1 so fast. if someone wants the site url to check and analyze i can send it by PM. though there is enough information in this post that you won't require to ask the url. This is my first adsense site so I am ready to learn.

    I hope some of BHW SEO expert will be having some reply for this.

    Your meta tag description is too short, according to

    Code:
    http://www.seocentro.com/tools/search-engines/metatag-analyzer.html
    Just checked both domains, yours and your competitor's and that's the first thing I noticed.

    Not exactly hard to find the url considering what your screen-shot consists of.

    The only major thing I see your site lacking relative to your competitors is a site map.

    You're number 7 for me.

    Can't help you on how he ranked No. 1 in such short time, but just to let you know, from the screenshot that you posted it's not that hard to find the keyword that you were ranking for :) I just did a google search and found both of your sites. The probability of that guy being on BHW AND seeing this thread is slim, so your best bet is to contact him through the email from the domain Whois. I know that it has privacy enabled, but I think this email is forwarded to the email that he provided. I might be wrong though.

    I am not sure how to check backlinks so I just googled up some links. Thing is :

    For your website they constantly show no backlinks

    But for your competitors they show the two digg links you mentioned.

    your competitor is using the infamous clickbump theme from xfactor.
    It is a very good adsense based theme.

    Yeah man, poor show. Could you not have made your point without showing this guys (and your own) niche to all of us.


    That said, maybe I'm a hypocrite as I did bash someone yesterday for encouraging people not to share methods.

    But in my eyes, sharing methods and sharing peoples actual pages/copy/etc are two very different things so maybe I should stop second guessing myself.... and talking to myself :D

    I just checked I am no. 5 probably it is different from country to country, when i check G00gle.c0m its no. 5 if i check g00gle.c0.in i am no. 1

    I just edited my meta tag, when i made the site it was there, now it had disappeared, so I added it again, Thank for the tool also, I never knew about it, it is very useful.:)


    I did not placed a link to sitemap though it was there. But after your post I have added a link to it in my footer.


    It would be lengthy process, and probably he will be more conscious if i try to contact him directly, If he is from BHW and he shares what he did then probably i won't do same for this site but may be for other sites of mine, where chances of me clashing with him are rare. but probably we will know what played an important role in his being on top so fast.




    there are lot of tools
    Code:
    backlinkwatch.com
    siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com


    I am just asking for what i am missing and that's why i did not post a link directly

    You stated that his site is keyword.net and the KW is clear from the pictures so its as good as posting the links. The link can be found with a simple google search for the KW. I suggest you edit your Original post if you can.

    If you are smart enough you can find all the other sites your competitor owns, by the way.

    Looks like he doesn't build links at all (except for digg.com)

    I checked your site as well as the competitors. I can see you are ranking neck to neck with our competitor for the keyword in your domain name. You are better than your competitor in terms of backlinks, text to html ratio and other major onsite/offisite parameters - except one. Your site has 20 W3C validation errors and his site has 0! Search engine bots may not be able to get the text content, header tags etc properly if you are screwing up on CSS/XHTML errors. Just fix them and see if you can get a boost in your rankings.
