I know most of you maybe struggling to reach page one on Google for their keywords, and some even give up so soon.

Let me share with you a few tips:

First of all do not ever stop building links back to your website. Find one good link building strategy and keep doing it every day at least 30 minutes per day. Like blog commenting or article writing (and I really briefer both). 10 to 20 links a day will do magic

You must have 2 blogs as your own, WP blog and Blogger. And always write posts about your website, like the new pages you are adding and updates. Use both links to your home page and deep linking to one or more of your pages.

Research your keywords you are targeting, and your compitition of each keyword.
This is the main element that can determine if you can get to Google 1 page.
Let's say you are targeting a keyword like make money online, search google and see who are the 10 results on Google and what PR each one have there is a toolbar for Firefox called (toggle SEO) it can be very helpful.

If the results are PR4 and higher and your PR is 3 or lower chances are it will be hard to get there.

So go to google keyword tools and find another keyword (long tail keyword) like make money on the internet, or ways to make money online.

Do the same research to find your competitors if you can find a keyword that return a page with lower PR on the first page. Mark it. And try to target this keyword

It does not mean to change the keyword of your main page, you can build a new page and target this new keyword.

And example.

My own website is targeting the term make money and home business, but I am not even in the first 5 pages.

However I have build several pages on my website (sub-pages) and targeted long tail keywords with great success

go to google and search for network marketing opportunities you will find a result on the first page that take you to arabian-affiliate.com/network........

and I did it for several pages

here is a great basic information about optimization read this article and you can see how easy you can do it but only if you do it right

    Do you always use dofollow links? Is there any point in commenting on nofollow blogs?

      You would almost always want to get link backs from "dofollow" blogs but ocaassional links from real authority blogs is not a bad thing since it's not normal if you don't have any "nofollow" links at all. And remember commenting on good authority blogs that have good traffic could bring some of it (traffic) to your site also. Just my 2 cents.

      Get links from anyplace (as long as it's legal) and do not worry about do follow and no follow.. Just put those 2 tags out of your mind because they don't mean anything.. They might have at some point but they don't anymore and have not meant anything for years...

    The best way to get #1 in google is go after keywords that don't have a ton of competition and you should rank on the first page and work your way up with backlinks to #1

    I hate to inform the OP but PR does not determine ranking ... If you find a PR 4 on top and you are a PR 3 then you can easily kick it out. Build backlinks and it will kick it out...

    Rankings are determined upon backlinks - quality content on site - social references it don't have anything to do with PR ...

      Link obviously don't all carry the same value. How do you decide if you can kick a site if it has a high number of backlinks?

      I am researching a term were the top sites have 1500 - 1900 yahooBL. How do I decide if I have any chance of getting past these sites? If I get 2,000 backlinks I know that won't automatically get me the top position. (atleast based on my experience with other sites you don't get the top position just because you have the most links).

    Is it just me that thinks this is weird?

    You're saying "this is how you reach page 1" but your site isn't anywhere near the top, let alone on page one.

    But you're saying that it is possible to get better results when you target less competitive keywords that are easier to rank for.... Duh..

    Maybe I missed something but you seem to have made a post about getting great results but aren't getting great results and are advocating going for low hanging fruit instead...

      I'm kind of where Andy is here...proof is in the pudding.

      My two pence worth....get the longtail keyword in your domain name, and NO not all the good ones are gone. I got a particular .com in Jan and am now ranking on page 2 out of 140 million competing sites - and I'm not that great at this IM game yet. Still need to learn how to really build decent backlinks.

      You just have to be creative, even if all the best ones for the most high paying niches (fatloss etc) are gone. Also, it still amazes me how many perfect domain names have been bought and just parked. You should easily be able to outrank a parked domain with some decent content and a few backlinks.

      Keep on keeping on!

      Andy,
      I was kinda of thinking the same thing but I was also looking at what he pushes in his sig.. You mean to tell me those sites are not good enough to get top rankings that you have to go after low comp keywords ..

    Most of these SEO-related threads turn to absolute drivel. SEO is an on-going process from the drawing board upwards.

    Rankings are not based solely on backlinks. Anybody who thinks otherwise is plain wrong.
    • Is your website W3C compliant?
    • Have you submitted an XML sitemap to all major search engines?
    • Have you submitted your RSS feed to directories?
    • Have you nofollowed and noindexed your secondary links (terms, policy, etc)?
    • Do you have a robots.txt file? Is your content correctly filed?
    • Are your URLs correctly written?
    • Are alll 301's in place from your old site/pages?
    • Have you checked for broken links? Download Xenu Link Sleuth and check.
    • Are your H1, H2, H3 tags correct? Do they reflect your page content?
    • Do you have content of genuine quality?
    • Are you using synonyms and LSI's, or are you just another keyword spammer?
    • Are you using ALT tags on your images?
    • Are your page names correctly formatted using hyphens between words? Or are you expecting accessibility systems and crawlers to decipher them for you?
    • Do you know the difference between ThisPage.html and thispage.html? Have you looked in to how they are read differently on Windows and Apache servers?
    • Are your META titles and descriptions within the character limits?
    • Are you analysing your data in Google Analytics? What keywords are coming through? Over how many landing pages? Where from? Where are they leaving? Why?
    • Are you making use of sitewide links? Or are you just another numbskull who has 'About' and 'Contact Me' as their main anchor...
    • Are you pinging your website to Pingler.com, Pingomatic.com etc?
    • Are you seriously relying on keyword rich domains? Or are you building a sustainable business?
    • Are you wasting 4 hours sourcing useless links? Or are you spending 1 hour formatting the perfect email to a relevant website owner?
    • Are you running short-term PPC campaigns to test keywords:conversion ratios? Or are you just 'taking a chance'?
    • Who is your audience? Can you draw them? How do they speak? What's their education level? How are they socially? Are they comfortable with technology? Does your website reflect this? Why not?
    • Are you considering your host? What?! Your audience is in the USA but you're hosted in Singapore? Why?
    • Are your URLs redirecting properly to Example Web Page Or are you just another oblivious fool with four separate URLs for each page on your site: Example Web Page, Example Web Page, Example Web Page... Yes, they are all different.
    • Have you setup your .htaccess file (Apache) or your web.config (IIS) files? correctly?

    Hopefully these will give you a few starting points to what SEO actually involves.

    Remember, the people writing search engine algorithms are most likely a lot cleverer than you or I are. Those of you still relying on old-hat techniques are walking the tight rope of sustainability.

      I want to reply to some of you at once

      As for dofollow and nofollow you know that there are other search engines out there other than Google, and yahoo will consider you link and rank your site higher when you get good back link even from a nofollow. Blog commenting is also a good source of traffic when your comment are of value. so comment even on a nofollow blog posts.

      Some here is talked about not finding my site in google, well i said it in the post that my main site is not in the first page (for the term "home business" it is in page 16). but some of my sub-pages are in the first page of google for long tail keywords last check i have 17 pages on the first page of google for some really good terms that each bring at least 100 visits per month from google and they are very targeted.

      even some articles on my article directory that are totally unrelevant to my niche are ranking very high in yahoo (search for the term "fastest way to grow hair") and see arabian-affiliate.com/articles/..... in the first page of yahoo. this one is good for the article author not me but it gives my site more authority.

      in feb i had received 489 visits from yahoo to some articles on my directory.

        I'm not saying links don't help, but people are blind to how much work goes in to sustainable SEO. That competitor is no doubt on an old domain with years of quality history behind it and a lot of quality links in amongst the 17k they have.

        Building useless links will get you short wins, but long-term you'll always be playing catch up.

      Nice list Alex. I've been doing seo for about 3 months now for my own sites. I'm doing 80%+ of what you suggest on this list, it is time consuming and requires skill to manage it all correctly.

      What does this mean:

      "Are you using synonyms and LSI's"

      Thanks.

        Hi Jamie,

        Great to hear that you've been doing most of the things I mention In answer to your question:

        Search engines are becoming much more intelligent at determining the relevancy of content to any particular keyword search. Therefore, if you are still relying on spammy keyword stuffing just to work for the SEs, you risk losing the interest of your users and missing out on other related searches.

        I work full-time as a search engine marketer and one thing we ensure with all of our websites is that we cover a broad range of terms from a 'related pool' we create.

        So where we might be working to target 'Manchester Hotel', we might in reality feed a lot of anchor links and on-page elements with 'Hotels Near M6' or 'Accommodation in Lincolnshire'. Now, obviously the balance has to ultimately be weighted towards 'Manchester Hotel'. But by using these other formats, we are making sure users to not get p*ssed off with keyword spam AND encouraging SEs to class the relevancy of our clients website with a whole lot more than just one keyword term. We're providing them with enough information to calculate the relevancy of our clients business against a whole multitude of search combinations.

        I hope this helps a little, Jamie. You might find use in this article too: Official Google Blog: Helping computers understand language
