What is your favorite SEO Strategy?

Whenever I go into a forum looking for a healthy community that can answer my questions or just be a fun place to rough and tumble, I always expect the worst.
This community surprises me. You guys really know your stuff, and you're not a bunch of jokers that like to troll the hell out of each other till they cry.
Due to this, I'm interested in a different level of opinion; what is your favorite SEO technique? Why is this one technique your favorite?
And it can be for any reason. It could be because it's the most fun for you, it could be because you find it the most effective for what you do, it could even be because you just like the idea of it... it doesn't even have to work really well, you just have to like it, and I want to know why!
EDIT: and I want ONE technique, ONE tactic that you implement in the vast world of SEO that just really hits home in your heart and mind. I don't want a gigantic strategy, I just want one small (or big) thing you do that is SEO related that you really like.
It could be as simple as figuring out where you want your <h> tags for your page, and adding them. It could be the complex art of link-building.

    • Focusing on getting high PR backlinks. It sounds obvious, but it is without a doubt the most powerful thing you can focus on in SEO. Spend 15 min a day building 4-5 high PR backlinks from PR3, PR 4, PR 5 + pages, and you will see your site rocket up the SERP's

    I also like this forum the most out of all of the rest! My favorite.....is backlinking with high page rank blog comments. I enjoy it because I can see the most movement in my numbers with this technique. When you see movement you gotta love it. And second is posting in this forum of course!

      What's the best way to find these type of sites. Do you use reverse engineering?

    I prefer support blogs because they get indexed fast, you can add value to the links with additional linking support blogs and if you have blogs on you own domains they never get deleted such as forum profiles. Links are also relavant because you link from a relavant blog post.

    Downside of the technique is that you need multiple IP for your support blogs and it is quite time(or money if you outsource) consuming to write articles for support blogs.

    My favorite SEO method is forum posting. But I don not consider this much as a mere SEO method. I consider it as my source of learning.

    Our blog network gives us our biggest source of link juice. I like owning the sites as it guarantees us that the link will remain on the sites. We have private registration for each of the 3000 domains plus over 1000 separate c class ip's.

    For a cheap fix you can use Article Marketing Robot to submit your spun plr articles to the network sites. Pretty simple to set up actually. I'm surprised more people are not doing this.

    A little biased obviously, but my favorite would be blog commenting. Followed by forum posting. Blog commenting because I enjoy the "hunt" for high PR blogs that haven't been blasted to death by Scrapebox users. These usually require manual approval from the blog owner. But the benefit is a backlink without a ton of competition on a potentially high PR page. Plus I actually enjoy leaving a helpful comment and becoming a part of the blog.

    Forum posting because it's a GREAT and often overlooked method of generating some quality traffic on a new site. Posting on a few high traffic, niche related forums can bring in a surprising amount of visitors. It's also one of the easiest ways to build a list at no cost. And it's always fun to help people, ask questions, answer questions, etc.

    One of the best techniques in my opinion is to find niche related communities and blots and make an honest attempt at participating. Be sure not to spam and to take full advantage of things that the webmasters might allow such as forum signatures and links in username for comments.

      First step, good keyword research.

      Second step, press release.

      Third step, Build my rank (about 25 posts)

      4th step, AMR linking to money site

      5th step, scrapebox blast to AMR links

      This is how I get things started. For maintaining I use build my rank, AMR, and manually commenting on high PR blog posts.

      Seems to work fine for me.

      Hi..

      There are many techniques in SEO which are used to get the webiste ranking in SERPs. It starts with the on-page SEO and then move to content modification and then they can start with off-page SEO activities which are most important and plays a very important part in SEO techniques. i love almost all SEO techniques but the most important those which help to get the ranking higher and higher very quickly and i include Forum Posting and article writing for that purpose.

      These both are very important techniques and there are many companies which are using these techniques as the core marketing method for their organization.

    I write unique articles for buildmyranks and postrunner networks, I do this for the first few months at least only. I then use 1waylinks and AMR for using spun articles linking directly to my site. I also use 1waylinks to backlink any of the backlinks I have on buildmyranks and postrunner on root domains of PR3 and up.

    I keep continuing the above, and also start adding in link directory submissions and forum profiles - and don't forget to write content that people would want to link to naturally.

    All this has got me to a comfortable living online.

    My new favorite is Blog Posting. For my company site 3 weeks ago I decided to target the keyphrase "where to find good backlinks" and I had one of my guys do a Blog posting package for me. An article was written and spun and posted to 1000 Blogs in his network. After about 10 days, i noticed i was ranking #4 for that keyphrase, out of absolutely nowhere because I never targetted that keyphrase before. I am now sitting on #3. I would recommend this service to anyone. You can read more about it on my site in my signature.

    Commenting on places like forums and blogs. It's more fun than just rote linkbuilding and I learn at the same time. Also, if it's a relevant forum you get more than just links. I've gotten more referral traffic and networking opportunities. I'll never rely on just search engine rankings ever again after having one website hacked and losing all my traffic and income from that site.

    If you know anything about myself in the business which we have been able to develop around our methodologies then you would know that we favor document sharing sites.

    The trick to document sharing sites is to offer quality information that answers your niches questions and referring them back to more sources of your material by providing a link. Now only are you answering your niches questions and getting more material in the Google search you will gradually increase your URLs ranking.

    When we first started out we were just spinning PLR material and achieving great results with that while utilizing the high traffic of docstoc. Eventually we graduated from PLR material to hiring our own team to create direct articles to some of the common questions within our different niches and the traffic has been amazing to say the least.

    Not only have our experiences been excellent with this technique but many of our clients utilizing this methodology has been able to achieve great results as well.

    Hope this helps.

    my strategy is always the same these days...

    Onsite:
    Good unique content, well written and informative
    Top quality onsite SEO - not noticeable to a major degree were its choking the page, but enough for the SE's

    Offsite:
    DIVERSE links and LOTS of them but on a CONSISTENT basis.... This never fails me folks, send a load of steady links from several different sources and you will be golden in googles eyes, if its diverse and its consistent it works! some of the stuff included in my assault on google are as follows:

    AMR blast over 100 live links
    full link pyramid
    submitted articles to 6 private blog networks
    manual link wheel of 25 high pr properties
    over 200 wiki media links
    and a TON of bookmarks!

    and a small and i mean small! amount of blog comments - i just leave nohandseo running in background, its good because its a steady consistent stream of comments plus its not crazy fast as its on my own machine, I repeat this process for weeks until i get the rankings i want....

    this is my master plan for SEO and it works like a charm folks!

    I am still learning, but I'm getting close to the first page of some fairly competitive search terms like Facebook page likes, and I just make sure the content is good, and steadily build a range of different links of all kinds, You Tube, Facebook, tweets, articles, blog posts, blog comments, a press release, a few social bookmarking sites, and I'm just now trying out build my rank cause I've heard it mentioned a fair bit here. One thing I just learned is it's preferable to have over 850 words on the page if you can.

    My favorite SEO technique is blog commenting, especially on those which are do-follow and Commentluv, Keywordluv enabled. Of course this method will take some time but the resulting links are of high quality and comments give a little traffic as well.

    After commenting, my second favorite SEO method is social bookmarking.

    Everyone should do quality work rather than quantity whatever the steps of SEO he followed. This should be the main strategy while doing SEO. My personal favorite is social media marketing.
