Just started picking up IMing again after a 1 year break; put a couple hours of work (20+ hours) I finally am on page 2 of google #1. On other web search engines (Ask, yahoo, aol, etc) I'm on the #1, 2, 3 page.
The method I used was:
Making 500+ word articles x4
Rewritting 2 of them = 6 total
Post 6 of them on my website then post them to 10+ 2.0 sites. Was gonna do like 1 article re-write a day but its so damn hard... :rolleyes:
From the 10+ 2.0 sites, I did a bit of social statuses, bookmarking sites, few videos (PR3+), and other experiments like using indexing in general to get more 'juice' out of it.
Pretty weak method, I know, however, I left out some other parts to get me many quality back links.
I did my research for my keyword (A lot of it using MS) to know that I could handle it first of all; there WAS competition. I would say there were 3 or 4 EMD competitors, however, none were SEO optimized and sounded like they were trying to scam others. Easy takedown of course.
Searches for GOOGLE were around 10k global and 4.5k U.S. (Exact and I looked at the graph to make sure the future was pretty stable and traffic wasn't spiked up for just that month).
Pretty happy with the results right now since I was planning on giving up because when I used a serp checker I misread it; thought it said my site was on page 26 when in fact it was #26 = page 2 (off a bit)
I was using adsense, however, the niche I'm in is a low competition (Decent cpc at 50 cents though), but, I decided I would use Amazon for my site.
Hoping to get to #1 within the next few weeks hopefully so I can get that nice traffic
