    The same as what worked in 2010, just more of it :-)

    No one wants to hear it. No one wants to believe it. But here it is: Create Great Original Content.

    When you think about it every trick in the book has only one purpose, to avoid doing the real work of creating content. If people spent half as much time and effort creating content on their own sites as they do trying to game the search engines, they'd be making a living instead of complaining that their one-page MFA got slapped after building 10 million backlinks to it.

        It's not exactly hard to beat them with a bit of original content now is it?

          What I'm getting at is that they have zero original content. Their auto-generated, keyword stuffed, affiliate links galore, sites are the kind of sites that typically get us "regular folks" deindexed from Google in a click of a mouse, even if we have "a bit of original content" on our sites. However, they rank well for thousands of terms and can be surprisingly tenacious in some niches.

            I agree with bgmacaw and I would add that just creating content is not usually enough. If you want anyone to see the content you create, you have to spend some time building backlinks.

              It might not be original but they do have thousands of pages of content. They rank for countless obscure keywords which has a cumulative affect on the more important ones. For example, if your site has 100 pages of different kinds of vacuums, ultimately it's going to rank well for the keyword 'vacuum'.

              That simply is not the case. The site in my adsense challenge didn't rank at all for it's main keyword. So I created some content around that keyword and it moved to page one. Then I created some more content and it moved to position 6. Then I created some more and it moved to position 4. Then I created even more and it moved to position 2. I expect it will move to the top spot soon.

              Meanwhile it now ranks on page one for hundreds of long-tail keywords that include the main keyword I'm targeting. All with no external backlinking whatsoever. Now of course that's not a hugely competitive keyword in the region where I'm getting those rankings. But globally it's moved from page 7 to page 4 thanks to the same content. And globally it IS a highly competitive term with over 150,000 searches a month.

                I have plenty of pages of content online. Writing an article, putting it online, and then just waiting for it to rank on it's own is not the best way to do things. The pages that make money for me are the ones that have not only good keyword research and good content but also some good backlinks. I'm not a big fan of the "if you build it they will come" method of SEO.

      You folks listen to this guy. Anyone who is finally making a dollar a day after 2 years of trying is someone who really knows what they're talking about.

        Yeah you're right. Backlinking is the answer.

        BTW I was making nothing because I was following all the crap advice about building niche sites and backlinking them. Now that I'm focused on creating content my rank is up, my traffic is up, and my income is up as you'll see when I post the December update.

    Twitter and Facebook should be part of your strategy. It is a quick and easy way to start to build trust. I have been putting a lot more time into this and it has been paying off.

    More trust built, and more quality content. My best bet for 2011 is going viral. Here are some other good strategies that you can use this coming year by the way:
