How I'm Dominating Google Right Now.. Local SEO

First of all here is a screen shot of a local client I'm working with and the results I'm getting..




Do you see that?

14 out of 18 terms are on the 1st page of Google.. 7 of which are ranked #1.

How am I doing this?

I'm not the best writer in the world so I'll spare you and I'll keep it short and sweet with this quick step-by-step post on how it's working for me right now. (shout out to Alex Becker at Source-Wave for the basis of these methods)


Step 1 - On Page SEO

For every keyword this particular client wanted to rank for I made a simple page regarding that topic.

Example - Right Arm Pain (not a real term he was wanting ranked).. but for example Right Arm Pain Treatment in (City)

I made a page on his site named "Right Arm Pain Treatment with (Profession)"

Then I made the title of the page something along the lines of "Right Arm Pain Treated by (Profession) in (City)" in H2 font.

The very next thing on the page was a youtube video of the client explaining his treatment of Right Arm Pain.
The youtube video was titled "Right Arm Pain explained by (client).

Right underneath the video was a paragraph or two explaining the treatment of "Right Arm Pain in (city ) by (profession) with 1 link out to wikipedia to something related to Pain or the Arm or anything really.

At the bottom of the page I linked back to the home page of the main site using the anchor text (City + Profession).

Boom..

Done-zo.

Within a week all these pages on his site started to appear on the first page of Google for there very specific keyword and city. There isn't really a ton of competition for these broad, longtail keywords. So ranking them is actually quite easy when you put everything on the page like I described above.

You are essentially giving Google everything that it wants.

Titles, Youtube video, outbound links to an authority (wiki) and inner page links.

All of that = ranks.


Step 2 - More On Page SEO

I went through the clients site and removed all duplicate pages. All duplicate posts and overall just cleaned up the site.

On the homepage I made sure that (just like the additional keyword pages I made earlier) his title, header and info all had the city and profession that he was wanting ranked.

I'm no wiz at on page SEO so I just did my best and did what I thought was right.


Step 3 - Reviewing The Previous Link Profile

Here is where I started seeing a major jump in the competitive keywords and were I still think there is plenty of opportunity to grow.

His last SEO made some shit links.

No disrespect, I'm sure he was doing his best and following protocall for link building the old fashioned way.. ie, building a ton of web 2.0 links with shitty keyword diversification (meaning every other link was (city profession).

What a crappy SEO that guy was..

P.S. This clients last SEO was me.


Moving on..

So I reopened all the web 2.0's that I built previously and changed the anchor text to the clients BRAND NAME.. and different variations of his brand name.

For example..

The clients office is something like "Jones Pain Management Office", so all of my links on my web 2.0 sites reflect a more natural linking structure..

The links from my web 2.0's now look like this..

"Jones pain management"
"jones pain management offices"
"jones pain office"
"Mr. Jones Pain Management"
etc..

This gives a profile that looks way more natural to Google.


Step 4 - HIGH PR JUICE!

This is by far the best rank bump I've gotten for a site and something I'm going to be heavily investing in from now on.

First.. I spent about $150 - $200 to buy various High PR Domains. About 5 or 6 sites ranging from PR 1 to PR 4.

Once they were in my possession, I placed them on separate hosting accounts with separate IP addresses.

Now again, I'm no SEO expert so I really don't know too much about IP addresses and the such.. It was just mentioned that to get the most out of your PR domains, you might wanna put them on different IP's and hosting accounts... so I did.

Once they were on different hosting accounts and set up, I placed different WordPress themes on each site.

I then took off all other outbound links (You know the ones at the footer of the theme pointing back to the developer and WordPress).
Next step (and a very important one) was to write 100% unique content for each site.

Again, I'm no wordsmith so they weren't great articles, but they were decent and most importantly.. ON TOPIC.

I wrote two 200 - 300 word articles per website regarding the topic of (client profession) and placed them on the homepage.

Within each article I placed 2 - 3 outbound links to the homepage of my clients site with variations of the most competitive keyword my client wanted to rank for... ie (Profession + City)

My keywords were varied like such..

"Profession City"
"profession city"
"the best profession in city"
"profession near city"
"city profession review"
"Brand Name in city"

etc...



This last step made the most difficult keywords jump up in Google and they continue to climb as I work on them..

That's that!

This is exactly how I was able to give my clients really good results in only about 3 or 4 weeks time.

The client has already gotten multiple leads and has secured 1 client in the first month of his new rankings.


Thanks!

    So your no SEO expert, but you're taking on SEO clients.

    First.. I spent about $150 - $200 to buy various High PR Domains. About 5 or 6 sites ranging from PR 1 to PR 4.
    Can't remember what you spent, and what you got for it either. So I guess your're no accountant too.

    PR4's Under $200 with change for 5 more domains. Hmmm interesting indeed.

    So I reopened all the web 2.0’s that I built previously
    I thought you said some other guy built those?

    His last SEO made some shit links.

    No disrespect, I’m sure he was doing his best and following protocall for link building the old fashioned way.. ie, building a ton of web 2.0 links with shitty keyword diversification (meaning every other link was (city profession).

    What a crappy SEO that guy was..


    Ok lets just stop this nonsense. Please someone, kill this shit already.

        That's my favourite bit. Gotta love the self-deprecation and honesty. Takes balls to say that in front of this audience.

        Nothing new here, and I don't like that huge useless image at all. I guess we can believe if you write that stuff, especially if the image is blurred more than japanese porno. I still sorta like this kind of war story.

        Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
        Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

        What's your excuse?

    not to poo poo on your efforts... but with such specific long tails, did you really even need to do the PBN to rank these? Seems like overkill imo.

    Thanks for the post Dixin,

    Don't worry about the negative comments because when you post about your strategy and what you did can help other people reading.

    I set up local sites similar to yours but it's good to hear that there are others out there seeing success with the same strategy.

      If you think a PBN with 5-6 wordpress blogs, PR1-4, all bought for $200, with some 300 word un-professionally written articles about a scientific niche, is some sort of positive learning experience.

      Well rock on...

      Btw he just happens to be selling links on that PBN in his sig. Best jump on that good thing while they're still indexed, or before the fake PR drops.

        Congratulations Dixsin.

        Don't worry about bad comments, everybody in the WF think that they are a SEO expert, so when someone shows their tatics to rank,they will always get negative comment from the "SEO experts"

        Anyway, this tatic is quite old actually, but nowdays the network method exploded, everybody is talking about network, so one day or another google will take care of networks or perhaps find a new way to measure quality link.

    You've got some thick skin Dixsin, I'll give you that.

    Don't get us all wrong, what you have posted here, while hardly ground-breaking, is perfectly helpful for newbies who want to see what results a PBN can bring and the fact that you actually back things up with a rank tracker screenshot is appreciated because many people don't do that.

    What is maybe most interesting for those same newbs is the speed at which rankings can improve given the right high PR links. Your screenshot shows one phrase going from #80 to #1 in less than a month and while I'm sure it's hardly the most competitive term in the world, if it were that easy you'd have been higher than #80 in the first place.

    I think the main problem people here have is the sig link to a Wordpress blog with the default theme and also to a page where you are selling links (which is broken by the way).

    Again don't get me wrong, sig links are a perfectly valid way to promote yourself but it's often appreciated if you contribute more to the community before starting to promote via it.

      Thanks for the honest feedback Steve!

      I think I just posted this because of the countless threads here of WF that are started by "newbies" (I'm not too far from that term myself actually), that say things like "I'm working on quality content and social sharing and it's 3 months in and I'm finally on the 3rd page of Google!"
      I used to do that and saw those same results... it took FOREVER to climb the google ranks.

      I know this method has been around for awhile and I'm not sharing anything "new", BUT I am sharing what finally worked for me....and worked a whole lot faster.

      Anywho, if it helps a newbie or two that's great and again, thanks Steve!

    Actually you are working on a PBN(Private Blog Network) Strategy. It is Good. I am also using PBN Since 2005. Still my websites rank in Google with my Desired keywords.

    Best of Luck...

      Don't pay too much attention to these guys. While some may not learn anything new, others will. Thanks for being open and sharing.

      For the person that asked why he did PBN links because they were overkill, they're not overkill for his main keywords. I doubt he put any of the links to an inner page that was already ranking #1. I imagine they're all going to the homepage, correct?
