Hi everyone,

I have a question for a long time, but today I took time asking in this forum because of the response I received for my previous questions. It has been a while since i have posted any question in the forum.

Being in Blogging for some time, I was thinking all of the tactics and time we spend in improving our blog will sometimes go in vain. I personally have faced this kind of situation to some of my blogs, for example, my blog on government Jobs information across India showed good performance initially. But now, I was loosing all of my hopes on this blog.

So now i was looking to start a blog just to provide information without doing any kind of SEO SEM or SMM or Digital Marketing tactics to improve my rankings.

If i do so, is it possible to rank my website to the keywords I was looking for? If this is possible, how much time it might take.

Your valuable suggestion can help me in continuing in this field or look for a 09 to 05 Job.

Thanks in Advance...

    You would be lucky if you go any traffic without implementing an SEO strategy.Search engine optimization is the gateway to all the websites that are listed
    Looks like you are taking the Build it and they will come approach.That will not work.My question to you is how do you expect people to find your website if you do not promote it ?

    If you are telling to your friends about your website or blog, that is also kind of promotion called "word of mouth". So, you can't expect people to your site with out any promotion. Nowadays most of the people knows about online marketing and they are doing online promotion such as SEO, AdWords to their business. So, It's not possible getting audience to the online site or blog without these promotional activities.

    If the keywords that you are targeting have zero competition, sure, you can rank well. Of course, if there is no competition, it is generally for something nobody is searching for, so it's rather pointless.

    It is not possible because google is all about search engine optimization, if you do not use them, then your competitors will use them and beat you with it, so you better dominate and not compete.

    Use all the tools that you can to boost your website ranking and that is how you stay on the first page of google.

    If you focus on 'long-tail' keywords, you can rank without doing any other SEO activity.

    No, it's not possible to rank a website without doing SEO as doing SEO of any website is similar to do marketing of products. If we don't advertise our product how people will come to know about our product and services.

    It would be a joke, if all the website owners in the world stopping to do above tactics may be it works. But still you need to follow search engine's guidelines.

    I think it is possible to achieve great results even without incorporating SEO, SEM etc. What matters is how important the site is to the public.

    YES YOU CAN

    Your site relies on uniqueness.
    Sure you can stuff your site with every possible keyword and phrases combinations
    to grab attention of crawlers but given that 95% of sites owners had no or very little
    idea what SEO is all about and yet are coming up in top SERP the best proof that
    sites thrown in Internet arena without heavy involvment of SEO SEM or SMM could
    have, maybe not as high but never the less good chance to find place next to big
    SEO players.

    Did I mention that G's Algo is looking for faceless, plain Jane sites just like that?

    Just put in mind that backlinks are considered as votes from some sites to your blog, so for google if your website has 0 outlinks (backlinks) that mean it has a bad reputation.

    I believe a website can rank without SEO or SEM. If you have quality content things can just fall in place without letting you struggle.

    If you want to get traffic from social media then its fine not to concentrate on seo.
    But with my experience, SEO is a slow process but very fruitful in long term. Without that, I am afraid you can rank.

    Look!
    You want to rank on SEARCH ENGINES without making your website FRIENDLY for them.. Does that make any logic to you?
    You must need SEO , now it depends on your keyword. If its super easy then proper On page SEO can easily rank a page.

    Of course, you just need to be doing a lot of those tactics naturally. For instance if you're famous odds are you are getting back-links to your website as well as social media hype.

    Get better blog images, space blog content better, increase content length.

    Also don't rely fully on SEO.

    Without doing any SEO. What does it mean? Where will you publish content? Publishing content in Search Engine is one type of SEO.
    Without SEO means that you want to rank without doing nothing.
    You can take steps without SEM or SMM but not SEO.

    Yes, You can get ranking without doing any SEO or online marketing, but you need to create unique and quality content. If your content is much better then others and helpful for visitors then you will get rank automatically,

      If that were the case, how come there's really good content on page 4 or 8 and crappy (or inferior without being crappy) on page 1, result 1?

        Hi DABK, Thank you so much for your reply,

        Actually, It may vary, If competitors have the nearly same quality content and doing SEO then definitely they will get better rank then you, but if anyone wants to get rank without doing nothing then there have no option without quality content. Website ranking does not mean only result #1, If you want the top position then you should have to do pure on-page SEO and some off-page work.
        {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11566679].message }}
        • Profile picture of the author DABK
          Website ranking #1 gets about 33% of the searches; #2 gets about 12%; #3 gets about 8%.

          You could shoot for #8, but you get 2% or so of the searches.

          If you are going for low competition, that means you get next to no visitors. If you are going for anything else, you have to do SEO and still get not much traffic.

          In other words, unless you are trying for "DABK is a genius" or similar, you need offpage.

          Because there are 10 spots on page one and usually more than 11 sites wanting page 1.

    No, It's not possible to rank your blog without any of the SEO SEM SMM tactics.

    But, If you are well-established blogger then ranking becomes a fairly simple game for you.

    Create a user-friendly and user help centric content, google will automatically give priority to your content. While writing new content should try to explain the content in a detailed way so that the user finds it engaging and he will share the content with needing one if he found it fruitful.

      Go tell that to the people who own the pages that show up on page 3 or 8 of the SERPS who have done what you suggest.


      Do you not understand that there is only one result shown in position 1? One result in position 2?
