    If your keyword research is good, this is not hard to achieve.

    8 Mil broad competition page is nothing, you should also mention about exact and allintitle competition for better reference.

None of them were available but from my experience I have no doubt that it would have been even easier to get to #3 ranking if I could have got a domain with my exact keyword.
    Yes, that's true. However you can always add "the", "and", "blog" at the beginning, middle or end of the domain name, Google disregards some of those terms.

    As long as your main keyword in the domain, it is good enough.

    Yes, I agree with that!

    Try to find a packet seller that limits the number of people a packet is sold to (less than 100, just my opinion - not knocking profile packet sellers) and make sure they have some kind of protection in place so that their packets aren't shared all over the internet.
    Yes, I agreed!

    There are many packet starting to limit the units or run a subscription with segmentation.

    Most of the problem comes from "underground / black hat forum" people who love to share something that is not suppose to share!

    If those link packet is shared in the forum, it would be ruin for everyone, and yet the guy who share it will not gain the benefit as well.

    From my experience, limited units tend to work better and have less chances being shared publicly!

    This one is new! do you actually received a lot of complaints? or Google filter your page?

    As long as you cover your tracks well, it usually won't raise any attention. However, I try to use different email for different campaign.

So roughly 85% of my links use the anchor text for the main keyword that I want to rank for when they point to my page and then I mix up the other 15% with similar keywords in the anchor text.
    Building authority sites - yes! Article marketing - Nope.

      I've never received one complaint but with all the spam lookout sites popping up there's not reason to not do it.

      I'll post the info for the allintitle, inanchor etc. later today or tomorrow.

      I create forum profiles on a large scale and I haven't had any problems at all. I have 4-5 domains with catchall email accounts set up so I have unlimited email addresses to use and I just randomly choose one every time I'm creating my profiles.

      I've also always been using the same IP address without any problems, although I am going to buy a proxy rotating software in a couple of days.

      I edited the original post to included my inanchor and intitle results.

      Scrapebox is pretty easy to work with once you get the hang of it and they have a new forum that you get get ideas from other people.

      Backlink Booster is not bad if you just read through through the manual a couple of times.

      The second time I read through the manual and watched the video it all become clear.

    Mike,

    this is a nice post!

    I would think, the process can be much quicker and simpler, though.

    ... having the exact match in the .com domain name AND some valuable content on the site in a super slim website html code ... seems to work for 99% of keywords for page 1 ranking, with some video posting and a back link from a youtube profile.

    I see a weakening effect for any word added to the "exact match" in the domain name.
    EXACT MATCH seems to rule.

    i own 1300+ domains and have tested this for a couple of years now, first the domains ranked even without any content apart from the domain name and a google search box on it.

    these days it seems like there must be "some" valuable, relevant content. refreshing and adding content helps a lot!
    the algorithm seems to like to see the site alive!

    I have finished my little software now and I will put content on those domains, doing some more "up to date" testing.
    i will post results and examples on the forum, for anyone to study.

    I see, that the source code of the rendered html is significant. if you can reduce it to the semantic minimum, it seems to help.

    I can confirm Koks comment, regarding the 8 mio results, too.

    broad matched searches in the Google SERP mean nothing in terms of SEO research.

    to see how many sites compete, one need to do a phrase match search, something like "my keyphrase is this" ... which has no results vs. 20 MIO results for the same search without quotes (broad match)

    then, i find that the google traffic estimator tool (estimating clicks on ads) gives way better data, then the overly broad estimates from the google keyword tool, which seems to be calculated on statistic probability, rather than reality.

    Mike and kkchoon,

    about content is king - what are you guys view on traffic, backlinks and content as comparison?

    case study:
    google dot com - the page's content almost never change but it received high traffic and it gets PR of 10.

    yahoo dot com - main page changes almost every day, its more like a news portal nowadays and it has PR of 9.

    I seriously think backlinks and traffics supercede content.

    What are your view on traffic, backlink and traffic? Which is more superior?

      Google created PR, so it's natural that Google is PR10.

      Backlinks > Content

      Get more backlinks than unique content. But don't put up useless, junk content. Make it so that at least your content is readable.

        Hey Mike Montgomery.

        Cool of you to share your tactics. That was a pretty solid post.

        Though Im not in total agreement on all your doings - its still a valuable body of text you threw out there.

        I liked the linking to inner pages part. I suggest that to folks using my system and in real life online businesses as well.

        It truly is amazing how much power the keyword filled domain is ... and then the keyword research. Lessons Id wished Id learned FIRST - not after 1,000's of backlinks - LOL.

        Id love to learn more about your use of BLBooster and how you might keep your web 2.0 sites filled with all the urls it sends out, from being shut down by the admins.

          Multiple ping.fm accounts help I guess. That's the only thing I've done to change things up a bit.

          I leave BLB at the 2 posts per run setting that it's already at.

          I think the key is what sites you're posting to. Xanga, wordpress and some others are notorious for shutting it down quickly though so I stay away from them.

    Very cool and informative post here. I was aware of many of these strategies but your views on profile link building were quite new for me. Some of the methods like building profile links and link wheels seems to work very less for me. May be I'am doing something wrong there.

    Anyways thanks for these newbie friendly tips
    Good luck

    Very nice post Mike.

    You use some article sites that aren't on my list. Made a note to check those out.

    Never heard of forum profile packets. Sounds a lot better than submitting profiles manually. One more thing to do.

      Backlinks will get you more ranking power, and you can't rank without content, there is not supercede or anything.
