Do you want a killer formula for getting and maintaining the number one spot (or at least a high position) on Google?
Well the good news is there is no magic bullet, formula or secret ...
So what is the killer formula ... here it is!
Good Keyword research + Quality content of value + quality inbound links = High Ranking
Good Keyword Research
Use Samuria or MNF and spend LOTS of time digging for low competion high search phrases.
Consider the profitability i.e. it is possible to find keywords that can get you lots of hits and no sales (been there done that). In my experience the more time you spend at the front end doing KWR the better chance you have of being ranked.
Quality content of value
Stop trying to take shortcuts. Google rewards quality, and wants content that is in the interest of their audience and provides value. You are better of writing and publishing high quality content that is well researched and meets the need of your site visitor than using some clever method to try and trick google for a short period of time (until they adjust their equations and kick you into touch). Remember Google are smart and employ a lot of smart people ... so you versus Google no contest.
Quality inbound links
You can apply all sorts of inbound link strategies but in my view if you put crapola out there you may get some short term gain but eventually will fall of the radar. I truly believe that 1 good article on EzineArticles can provide more long term sustainable results than a thousand poor quality, spammy inbound links.
Here is a great example of an article published in 2005 that has had over 965,000 hits How To Lose Belly Fat With A 10 Minute Workout
How I wish I had written this bad boy!
The key is QUALITY QUALITY QUALITY
