I got it. Google LOVES good content.
So 18 months ago I started a curated site in the dog niche. And all we did was content. We did NO SEO.
We didn't try to get a single link.
We did use Twitter and Facebook and built up an insane following on Facebook.
And that's the real secret - getting engagement.
If you know real well what makes your audience tick, you are on the way to success.
What do they love?
What do they hate?
What gets them to respond?
So last month we had over 1.2 million page views and 980,000 visitors to the site.
We've discovered what makes things go viral and deliberately go about making people crazy.
Because it gets them to engage with us.
We use No tools. There is NO autoposting.
The secret is great content.
Put up great content and SEO is completely unneeded.
