Who am I?
I am the proud owner of several websites that have phenomenal rankings in Google.
One of my newest websites YoungJeezyLoseMyMind.com is currently on the 2nd page of Google for the keyword "Young Jeezy" (without quotes) with a competition of over 4,500,000 and has 7,500+ backlinks.
Did I mention that the site is less than 1 month old?
I used Scrapebox to build the backlinks to my website.
Another one of my websites has over 130,000+ backlinks and is currently ranking for very competitive keywords such as "Hip Hop Songs" (without quotes) 2nd position, "Top Hip Hop Songs" (without quotes) 3rd position, "Hip Hop Music" (without quotes) 10th position, etc.
The website is ThatKush.com
I have several websites making me money, and so my advice and tips are not bias since I'm not selling other marketers marketing information like almost all the "gurus" out there. (Most marketers make money selling you false information on how to make money)
So I have a lot of personal experience with ranking my websites on the first pages of the search engines with a No-Mercy Mentality.
Now let's clear up some Myths and Misconceptions:
Myth 1: No-Follow Links Are Worthless
-This is absolutely false and is spread around so that you don't get the rankings that you deserve by making you get very picky with your backlink marketing.
All backlinks are "Votes" to your website, some just carry more "Voting" weight than others. So a high page rank website linking to you will carry more weight with its vote than a lower page rank website. A do-follow backlink will carry more weight with its vote than a no-follow backlink, etc.
But at the end of the day it's ALL about how many VOTES your site has.
Myth 2: Building Too Many Backlinks Will Get Your Site Deindexed
-This is once again false. If you build too many backlinks at once, the only potential "harm" that can be done is if a worker of Google itself notices your site and it's full of spammy, non-unique, etc. content then they might remove it from their search engine. What are the chances of that happening? Slim to None.
I've built 7,500+ backlinks to my Young Jeezy website within 3 weeks and I'm ranking better than ever. I also know MANY other websites doing this as well and getting phenomenal rankings.
Google won't deindex your website based on backlinks because if that was the case, then everybody would build backlinks to the "new" competitors' websites to get them all deindexed. You will get deindex if your website is crap AND if it's found by a worker of the search engines itself.
Myth 3: Get A Backlink From Relevant Websites
-Once again this is not true, you can get backlinks from any type of website and it will still count as a "vote" to your website.
The reason "relevancy" is good is because it will give you the Theme Factor (LSI Related) weight, so the "vote" is a bit more.
Ex. Your website is related to dog training, and you get a backlink from a dog training website, so the backlink now has more weight because the overall theme of the backlink's site is related to your keyword via the LSI relevancy.
However, you can get backlinks from Anywhere!
Myth 4: Certain Backlinks Can Get You Banned
-This is simply not true. The only way your site can be banned via "backlinks" is if You are linking to websites that Google doesn't like because it thinks that the site is spammy or poor quality.
If certain backlinks could get you banned, then everyone would build backlinks to their competitors to ban them, and that is simply not the case.
Myth 5: Duplicate Content Will Get You Banned
-There's some truth to this, and therefore, you shouldn't just copy/paste content onto your website (hence why most autoblogs fail), But if you use video embeds like my website ThatKush.com then that's not duplicate. Duplicate Penalty can happen if you just simply copy and paste almost all of your site's contents from other websites.
If you are using duplicate content for your entire site, then you are asking to potentially be banned because you are taking the "lazy" way out without making your website stand out in some shape or form.
This is it for now, if you have questions, please don't pm me unless it's absolute necessary. I prefer you ask the questions in this thread.
