You have all kind of SEO experts and visions, mine is a simple one, create content, a lot of content in a feel good website so users will add more content and let Google index it. After one year and a lot of discussions on a Dutch webmaster forum I showed the results. All my criticasters became silent.
I call it reverse Link building, the most natural way and the way Google likes it a lot.
My philosophy was not to start link building, but to create a website in a niche that people like to talk about. Let other people do the link building for you. Not SEO experts, but humans who like your website, your subject and your pictures.
I started on the 21th of June with just a handfull of links, and old data base of cars for sale and a new website. The results after one year are:
- 259.047 Visitors came using Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex and other search engines in 12,5 months
- 157.344 Different keywords and strings they used.
- 2105 Different keywords and strings stand in the top 10 of Google in the last 3 month only.
- Position 1 - 374 Keywords
- Position 2 - 385 Keywords
- Position 3 - 361 Keywords
- 141 Different Google search engines were used. (.com, .de, .ca, .nl, .co.uk, etc)
- 841 Different links from forums, blogs, directories and blogs come in. 98% Not asked or paid for.
For it showed that the website I created will be a solid website, that is made to last, because the way the link building is set up. If you look at the PR, it is still a PR2 for the main page. But many pages inside have a higher PR.
It also shows that a PR is not that interesting, because I out rank many higher rank website. I expect that in the next years the incoming links will go up faster and faster. All I have to do, is that what I like best. Working and improving the website, the possibilities and going on the street taking photos of more cars.
I hope that you guys and girls understand the real value of good and variation in content. If you start with content first, the backlinks will come, if you start with backlinks first, you never know if the content will come.
Because I not want this to become a promo topic for my website, I will not give it in the topic. For me it was important to share the result of a content made website. If you want to see it, send me a PM and I will give it to you. Just don't mention it in the website. Thanks.
