First off I just want to say that the most important advice I can give about internet marketing is to never be discouraged and give up. Always keep at it, eventually it will pay off.
With that being said, I have a website that one week ago was sitting at position 300+ on Google. In fact all of the keywords I was targeting were. After one week of consistent work I have taken all of my main keywords to the top ten of Google.
So how did I do this? How did I rank so quickly for keywords that have 197,000, 414,000, even upwards of 800,000 competing websites!
Well I had just gotten out of a Google Sandbox. I had taken some bad advice, and done some link exchanges and other morally gray things to my website.
I do apologize I will not give out every detail of how I accomplished this, but I will give you the basics of it.
I started creating backlinks every single day. I stayed consistent creating between 30 and 50 backlinks a day to my webpages. I did not just target one page I created several links to each of them. This way I created basically a web of links between my pages. I checked everyday and was seeing results so I kept at it. on the 6th day of the week I had gotten almost all my keywords to the top 20 positions but I wasn't completely satisfied with that.
So that night I stayed up late and wrote a 5000 + word article that I created a page for on my website, but targeted different keywords then any of the ones I was targeting. I was pretty sure I would not rank for these keywords considering they had over 2,000,000 competing websites, but that was not the reason I did it. It just happened that these keywords worked perfectly for the article I was writing. I researched them using Google keyword tool. I picked the best one and made it the main keyword of my webpage. Then I wrote my article and sprinkled in the other keywords I had researched that had less competing websites and search volume. I also made sure to include some of the main keywords I was targeting for my other web pages as well.
I added a link to warriorforum and a few other authority websites to my article and published my page. THe next day I woke up and by the afternoon I was sitting at the top positions!
I am not saying this will necessarily work for anyone, just explaining how I did what I originally thought impossible. When I started seeing results was when I sat down and said screw everything I have tried in the past or learned from all sorts of marketing products I have used. I need to experiment, I need to take charge and test things for myself.
To your success,
