What's Your Plan For 2012?

I decided to write a quick post to talk about SEO in 2011 as I reflect on this year and make my plans for 2012.

2011 has been an incredibly good year for me in terms of SEO and achieving high rankings for many of my sites. I've also been very fortunate to have remained unaffected by all the Google algorithm changes and updates such as Panda and the new freshness update. This time last year all I had was a couple of new PR0 sites that were not ranking too well. 1 year later and I'm now sitting with a number of high ranking, money making sites up to PR4.

2011 has seen the Warrior Forum filled with cries of unexplained dropped rankings and de indexed sites. Looking at the way Google’s algorithm has evolved over the years and how many changes they've made I'm sure these cries will continue through 2012.

I've seen quite a few of these sites that have been hit by Panda or de indexed completely. Without wanting to ruffle any feathers, most of these sites have been very low quality. Of course there have been reports of perfectly good sites loosing rankings because of the Panda update but some collateral damage can happen.

So for 2012 I will continue to do what I've been doing through this year and improve on certain areas. I will keep an eye on what Google is up to through next year and continue to adapt and make improvements. My plan through 2011 was to build lots of sites but I have instead changed my focus to building up and improving on my 8 best money making sites.

I think the days of throwing up thin, low quality sites and walking away from them are slowly dyeing. If your plan for 2012 is to build a load of thin sites as fast as possible to make money then you may want to have a re think.

Here's a look at Google’s algorithm change history over the past 11 years. It makes you wonder what’s in store for us in 2012!


Although I feel quite confident that I can continue to build on my best quality sites and achieve high rankings, I'm working on building a second income stream going into 2012 that does not relay on traffic from Google.

    What i plan to do in 2012 is get rid of a couple of websites that (after 2 years) make me no money. Kind of cleanup. The tourism niche was not kind to me so i will stay away from that kind of websites in the future.

    I will push the money-makers more and create a couple more in a different niche.

    Also i will translate the n1 website of mine in more languages (a lot of work due to much content) and see how it goes.

    I wish every one a $great$ 2012.

  • To be honest my goal for 2012 is to investigate paid traffic a little deeper. SEO will always be there and is great, but for me building my business on that model alone is way too risky.

    Paid traffic combined with SEO is where I'm heading.

    1-make my offline business for local companies a reality. (currently in the making with a client awaiting my leads already lol..)

    2- Make my main website more profitable. I started from nothing a couple months ago, not even knowing IM exsited , and this month my first website (I have about 15 sites now) is going to finaly break the 100$ for this month, already at 185$+ so I will probably get 200$+.

    3- Make another 4-5 websites related to the first one using the exact same formula. I can't believe how many pages im ranking for with ZERO backlinks. I beat other sites with tons of backlinks in a matter of days.

    Seriously guys, authority sites are the way to go. Pick a niche, dominate that nice. Forget about laser taregeted websites, this will not work for long-term incomes. Once you get a main product, make posts or pages for other keywords related to that main one and you will rank them EASY.

    My plan is to have fun and enjoy myself working on projects that I find interesting. Earning money is a natural side effect from that which, to be honest, I don't even care about that much.

    Depend less and less on search engine traffic, focus on social media and create a new offline start-up.

    Google is hitting hard people, it's time for us to move on and let them know we don't care about Pandas, bears and Caffeine's...
