        Hi Kapil,

        It is dead only in that case when you are doing guest posting at that blog which has no PR, Alexa and domain authority. If you are doing guest posting at high authority blog, you will get quality backlinks and it will help to increase your rank. If you are still not using Social Networks, you are losing your audience.

          I agree. (although it might be hard to find a high PR site that you can post on today that won't include a rel nofollow tag on your link) While social signals isn't a part of Google's algorithm (yet) you want to include it as a strategy in your SEO blueprint.. (Matt Cutts is to blame for the confusion. First he said it WAS sometime around Dec 2010- then he said it WASN'T- Jan 2014) Anyway, it's what results from the social activity that should get you natural back links from people who love your content so it's a worthwhile strategy that you want to include in your SEO process.

          One way that has worked out pretty well for me is to write some reasonably good orignal content and post those on WEB 2.0 sites with a link back to my website and "money" page.

          CORRECT! Guest posting is still not dead. As long as you don't do guest posting from poor websites. Why not do guest on authority sites in your industry?

        Guest posting is not dead. It is dead for those who are overdoing it and are targeting low quality websites without traffic.

        Hey, I've recently read an article by Moz about Google+ positively affective your Google rankings. + they have done some experiments and stats that prove their point.

        Just search Google for "moz google+ rankings" and it should pop up on the first page

        Don't believe everything you hear. A lot of Google's intent I feel is to scare us out of using various tactics. If they simply scare us into it, then they don't actually have to add-on/improve there search algo. Not saying that it should be your primary focus, but just keep in mind "everythings good in moderation". Follow that motto and you'll be fine. =)

        I strongly suspect original post's text was partly copied from somewhere. Also, just can't understand what numbers 2 and 4 are supposed to mean. Something that switches social games, and guest posting homicide instructions?

        Or why there's number 3 which is not a strategy.

        Only if you willfully or accidentally misunderstood his point completely. Guest posting for spam is something that Google might try to limit in near future. Link bait and other forms of effective content marketing are the things that they would push you to do.

      I'll agree with this. One of my primary strategies for my clients is to focus mostly on solid content & social media, should they have the budget for it then Pay-Per-Click as well. Once you get your content out there and gain a following, back-links will follow. It's a much slower process, but its the only sure-fire safe way for the future.

      Ha and the 2 people above rank for......... Nothing!

      Seriously though, social doesn't have enough of an impact to rank a site....yet and not manipulating Google haha, then don't ever try to build a website because from then on every marketing activity you do is trying to manipulate their algorithm for your personal benefit.

      There is no suck thing as a "latest technique" the number 1 SEO technique that works these days, in terms of off page at least is the same thing that people did when google launched.

      This is something I just posted in another thread, it fits perfectly here:
      Originally Posted by massiveray View Post

      Do some research into your target market, who are they? What sites are they visiting now?
      Create something of value to them that doesn't already exist on the sites they visit, this is your asset
      Approach the sites they visit via email, phone or even snail mail if you have to
      Tell them about your asset and that it might interest their viewers
      Ask them to link to it

      Then repeat the process for other areas that might be of interest to your target market, are there any transferable traffic options? For example a guy who is interested in books, will also be interested in ebooks, ebook readers, pdf's and other forms of material that he can read if it is sold to him in the right way by someone he trusts.

      This is how you link build, this is how link building has worked since 1998 and it's still the same, things just get added and taken away here and there.

      FYI read my blog post below, it tells you how to do this in a less targeted but still "safe" way.

      But keep in mind that what I have said above is a form of link building that will always be effective until link building as an activity becomes ineffective.

      Do it for the benefit of the person who will click your link and you won't go wrong.

      Back up this with a few PBN links and you'll pretty much rank anything with the exception of gambling, porn and personal loans site. If you wanna rank for them then you better start to learn how to write Linux linking scripts and other super shady activities.

        Agree

        I have a feeling that most of the people answering the SEO questions don't do SEO at all or just dabble with it a bit because they just copy/paste Matt Cutts quotes (even tho he is the last person you should be listening about SEO) which are total nonsense. Google doesn't want SEOs - they earn through Adwords, they don't want your affiliate websites and other crap.

        Boggles my mind that people dabble with SEO and than look for a solution that is 100% safe by Google guidelines (which is a fairy tale scenario). I mean, go do PPC or media buys if you want what you payed for.


        This is what I'm talking about:

          If you're saying that links from social sites may affect search results - well, maybe they do. Google certainly indexes some of those sites, and link is a link even if it's nofollow in the 100th page of an unpopular Twitter feed. However, many seem to use "social signals" to imply that there's some sort of extra power to these links (or even likes) and that they affect SERPs in way that's different from the average nofollow link. Everything about that is BS. Lets just call them links, shall we?

          If you really want to argue that "social signals" are real - you're the guy who sells Myspace likes so perhaps you could show some evidence?

          Matt Cutts has made statements that Google didn't retract even though they changed things to almost the opposite. His clout is certainly used to push people to the direction Google would like them to go. But in this matter Cutts' explanation is concise and plausible.

              This dismissive BS is not an argument for or against anything, it's just worthless filler. We all fully well know who this Cutts fellow is, who he's representing, and where he comes from. If his comments are wrong then that's interesting and worth discussing.

        Not always. Good content isn't enough. You can have the best content in the world but if you have nobody to read it, it doesn't matter. You need some kind of OFF Page SEO in place to get the traffic that reads your content then shares your content with other people thus creating a snowball effect.

          Disagree here. When you keep adding good content that Google indexes your traffic will grow. Having a good internal linking structure (site maps, breadcrumbs, etc.) can really help.

          I mean, I know that having inbound links is huge, but trying to create your own can blow up in your face. If you keep adding good content the site can grow slowly and naturally because magically other sites start linking to you.

      Hi,

      My blog is about 3 months old and last month (March) was when I actually started to build momentum. If you want to know what worked for me, it‘s high quality original content. Let me tell you guys something...

      Many times people are focused on writing 3-4 blog posts per week however these posts are not the best work they can do. I‘d focus on writing 1-2 blog posts per month and research everything before publishing your post. Make it so your blog content is the only content that the reader needs to look over so they can find all the information they need.

      Rather than suggesting you do x to achieve y, I think it's a better idea to constantly monitor sites that are ranking for competitive keywords in your niche and see what they're doing.

      SEO used to be more "static", for lack of a better word, where the same types of techniques were successful over long periods of time but now things are changing much more regularly so you need to just constantly watch what's happening and try to keep up.

        This has got to be the best advice I've seen posted in a long time for SEO

        You need to see what got people on page one for every keyword/niche

        Every keyword/niche is different

        One tactic does not fit all

      Nobody is going to share the latest "working" and effective technique. Why would they? As soon as any SEO trick becomes popular the Google hammer will follow. Also many "secrets" shared as WSOs are just the strategies/tools that stopped working or are no more efficient.

      Be creative and look for non trivial solutions - reading forums in the hope of finding latest and greatest is not the right approach.

      I got a page (not even completely finished) ranked in the top 10 of google for my preferred keywords by just backlinking, setting up my meta tags, putting a few keywords on the page in header tags and adding the page to the various search engines and I used a free offer from Directory Maximizer and I am in the top 10 of Google, Bing and Yahoo for my chosen keywords.

      I didn't do much really and I guess maybe my keywords aren't that competitive. My site is hxxp://www.cmit.com.jm and my keywords are web design, website, jamaica, affordable, graphic design, and a few others (Jamaica has to be in the search query since I am focusing on that market). Any variation of that gets my site on the first page, go ahead try it - you will see it there.

      My point, I think back linking is a good method (still),
      Have good Meta tags
      Content is barely important as you can see if you visit my site, It has practically none (since it is still being worked on, just can't get the time to finish it up).

      We have to remember, its a bot that checks the site and it is hard for the bot to determine what is 'good' content. Good content gets readers and gets them coming back, keywords and links get the rankings which is what helps to get visitors.

      I have a list of all the sites I backlink from. I'm still there on the first page of Google, Yahoo, Bing, Duck, and a couple others (just checked to make sure).

      PM me for my referral link to sign up for directory maximizer (as far as I know it worked for me).

      P.S. On that matter of content, I guess if you want readers and subscribers then good content is important to keep them, if you want search engine ranking then it isn't very important.

        Not really:



        This screenshot shows why you rank on page four:



        See all those sites with DA10, DA17 etc.? There's your answer, close to zero competition!

        And here it doesn't even show you cause I search from a Thai IP, but SerpFox shows the true answer from Jamaica IP in the 1st screenshot.

        Now work on your content and you'll see you rise in the SERP's, as content still plays a large role, its just that only with content you won't get far.

        And learn how to disable personal results in the SERP's

          I don't see his website listed on the screenshot you provided on page 4. His listing is actually on page 5. Either way page 5 means... not many visitors and it's not on the TOP 10.

          Personal results - go into incognito mode if using Chrome or Private Window when you are performing the search. That way the browser does read any cookies from your local computer that could sway the results.

          Also good effort for adding your link in this post. Maybe you may slightly increase your ranking.

              Yes, I believe the search results will vary depending on which google domain you use to perform the search, that's why it's always best to perform the searches manually. In particular, if the target audience (I think this is very important) is in jamaica, then use google.com.jm. You just need to make sure you run the searches in a Private or Incognito browser.

                As I said these are results from the .jm version of Google. The SERP checker ran with a bunch of proxies from Europe which may affect the results.

                Incognito window has nothing to do with this.

                  The reason why I mentioned Incognito is so that it doesn't read cookies, ensure you're not logged into Google (Gmail, Google+, etc) so that it doesn't skew the search results by using history, caching etc..

                Now I see him on page 5 as well when searching with incognito but that's still not location based. That's why I use Serpfox, they should use local proxy's / IP's.

                  I don't believe it matters if it's local or not. My search result should not be any different to yours or from anyone in a different country if we are both searching using google.com.jm

                  Unless someone proves me wrong. I previously did some tests when using local IP addresses (not using proxies).

                    Google uses geoIP info to show relevant results to the user. Using an incognito window does nothing to prevent this. However, you can ask results from a country other than your own (&hl=jm for example).

                    It's abundantly clear that this does happen. Just use any proxy, and visit any Google version. They will try to show results from the country you're supposedly in.

                    SERP trackers ask Google to give them results from certain country and language combo. It's a bit unclear if the IP location (of you or proxy) still affects the results in this scenario. I've seen some indication that it might.

                      I only mentioned incognito window when someone else mentioned personal searches. Try logging into gmail and then perform a search. The results are very different when you're not logged in.

                      This is because google redirects you to the local google domain. e.g if you're physically in jamaica then it will redirect you to google.com.jm when you type in google.com

                      All I was saying was that if you're source IP address was from the US and you directly went to google.com.jm, you will still get the same results if you were physically in jamaica or using a range that is geotagged as Jamaica.

                            I've had enough discussions with clients about these type of things to know that it gives different results from different locations, despite typing in the tld with /ncr (no country redirect) added.

                I think the location has a lot to do with the search results. I did (and always do every chance I get) carry out the search from other computers I have never used before here in Jamaica and it still gets the site on the first page of all the major search engines.

                Since I am doing this on the side, I just apply some crude methods and I check these methods every chance I get on other computers, once I sit in front of a computer for the first time (and I do that a lot at multiple locations in Jamaica), I carry out a search for my chosen keywords and there it is consistently at varying positions on the first page, I have even asked a few of my friends to do so in the US, the UK, Trinidad and Tobago, even Australia and I have shown up on page one especially for 'Affordable Web Design Jamaica' so, I don't know what has caused different results for other guys. I haven't had the time to do it perfectly, I just used the Free Offer I got from Directory Maximizer on a spur of the moment thing just to test it out and it did work for me and well enough if you ask me.

                My point: content is essentially secondary to backlinks and good quality ones. You can rank a page with unrelated contend to specific keywords in google once you have good quality links. This brings me back to my point earlier 'Links - good quality ones get you rankings, ranking gets you visitors and good quality relevant content is what keeps your visitors coming back' its as simple as that.

                Backlinking > Ranking > Content (in that order). The first and second go hand in hand.

            Nothing is dead for SEO. But, we should do quality work and create quality and relevant backlinks for website.

            Social media optimization is really must because it increases General Awareness and Familiarity of Your Company among users.

            Content marketing: One of the most important part of SEO, requires to index website on targeted keywords in SERP. always target users with content not bots.

      I think content is King and Social Signal is queen. However I think ranking doesn't depend on Back Link / On-Page / Off-Page only. Because I think if we have a bad behavior from customer such as High Bounce rate ratio or exit rate generated by GA, Google would be drop our keyword down cause the customer don't interested.

        Oh my.

        Social signal is queen? Err... You mean like a meaningless thing from the past that doesn't serve any purpose? At least there's still queens in this world, but social signals nowadays seem to be about as real as unicorns.

        High bounce rate is "bad behaviour"? How about a fact of life if you are running a campaign of any sort, or happen to have an article that's popular in social media.

        Do you have any proof that Google would actually use Google Analytics to "drop your keyword down"? Yeah, I didn't think so. They're probably tracking link statistics from their search engine. You know, the relevant stuff for the rankings in that search engine. Bounce rate may indicate some problems with your site and/or content, but it's not causing problems in itself.

        I pay for traffic, and its making me money.

        Ok, seo works, but I have seen in 2013 - 2014 many peoples business lost overnight due to a shitty google update.

        Best off to build a proper marketing plan that will hold up longer term. SEO is good, but volatile not for the weak of heart pretty much.

        Not really a fan of google, but I do not have to be to make money on line. Google and adwords is just 1 way of about 300 powerful ways you can drive traffic online.

      I see people are still getting their SEO information from Matt Cutts..

      Good luck ranking anything other than phrases with little to no search volume with that whiter than white BS.

      This forum is full of "SEO" experts who think earning $10k a month makes them an SEO Guru.

      I genuinely feel for the sheer number of folks participating in never ending work , not having a clue they are going to get nowhere or if they do, it will be very short lived.

      Blind leading the blind.

        That is a good point, I think Matt Cutts is trying to throw people off what actually works so they don't try to game google because clearly the techniques he speaks out against work and it is costly for google to fix its algorithm to rule those out, if they do it would rule out legit stuff.

        Anyway, in bold - what do I need to do to earn even 1/20 of that? If I did I'd be cool, I have a full-time job and the extra 5-10 bills ($500 to $1000) wouldn't kill!

        You've got to be kidding. Earning 10k a month, 120k a year is outstanding by just about any standard! That means you're making more than 99% of people involved in IM. I take it you're doing more than 10k a month?

            I think joint ventures with fellow SEO's in the affiliate marketing business is key to scaling up. I've had similar months with certain affiliate sites, but I've been reluctant to hop into any JVs fearing I might reveal too much of my own "brand" of strategy and have these potential partnerships backfire. I've also found it absolutely burdensome working as a lone wolf to add any more to my plate.

            Are you building out authority sites here? Hiring VAs?

              No, it's a "proper" site with real authors who we pay who know their subject.

              We also offer free advertising to some authors in return for very detailed articles.

              We make money from internal offers of our own and from products from a variety of platforms.

              We also have a members element to the site .

      Thanks for the suggestions and the searches guys... One important keyword that was missing is 'affordable' I need to backlink to get good results without the need to have affordable all the time. I did get a page one listing when I used a US browser (via teamviewer) to search for 'affordable web design jamaica' was about number 4. I figure the google.com.jm affected my results when I did manual searches.

      Now that the 'affordable web/graphic design jamaica' brings me in the top page, do you think I need to backlink for 'affordable web design' without the Jamaica, I doubt I need to since I am focusing on the jamaican market.

      Below is the screenshot of my search in google.com.jm

      There it is at the top, it was not yesterday and I signed out of google and this OS install is a fresh install.

        If you look at your url, it's not google.com.jm

        Try searching in Private Browsing by clicking on File then, click on "New Private Window" then go to google.com and see if it returns a different result.

        I'm interested to see what you get.

        If you're in Jamaica you are going to type in Jamaica?

        I know I don't type in Holland when I'm looking for a mountainbike, I just type in affordable mountainbike if I'm low on cash.

          Agreed, I think he needs to do some keyword research on traffic volume. I would target keyword + city before targeting a country as a local keyword. Example, kingston web design.

      1. Write genuine and out the box.
      2. Be the first to write on HOT topics, that way you will get a lot of back-links naturally.
      3. Use Google auto fill suggestions for keywords long tails.

        Yup... That's something I prefer to have my VA's do. I prefer majesticseo.com or ahrefs.com because those services are really much more indepth.

            Well because my website only targets procurement managers in big companies and they don't really care about the content I believe however I also need to be ranked highly.

              I think I follow - you're building back end content, in order to gain Google Love but your front end is the only part your audience really sees?

              Ultimately , this is the bottom line.

              If you're trying to get some Google love, then the content on your site will assist you dramatically, in the sense people don't read crap content, the exit bleed is really high, the time on page low etc.

              In our experience, these factors dramatically outweigh most of the supposedly critical factors SEO gurus harp on about.

              If Google thinks your site holds no particular interest to the people it's sending there , you can guarantee it won't hold your position , it's going to give it to somebody else who can provide relevant content.

              This really pertains to long term real business sites.

              If you're just building a site full of dross so your link bait has a home to land on and you're perhaps sending them off to an offer immediately, then I'm really not your man, I stopped that kind of business model a long time ago, it has no longevity.

                I disagee heavily.

                I know people who are still very successful with autoblogging in 2014 and the content they use is completely unreadable. Still it drives heaps of traffic.

                Besides that, adding filler content can be a great way to add relevance to your site and it's dead easy to manipulate it in a way that it hardly ranks but that it only helps to rank the pages that you want your visitors to end up on.

                      There's a hell of a lot that's changed in SEO over "many years".

                      What was viable many years ago, sure as hell isn't now.

                      What terms are they "holding". Of course they can hold "some" terms.

                      I could put up a blank page with the words "screw you " on it and rank it for "some terms"

                      What's the commercial value of the terms?

                      What's the competition for the terms.

                      That's the problem with blanket statements like above.

                      There are always caveats to known conditions and many of them do depend on what level you're on as a marketer.

                      The problem with comments like you've made are it's so generic. It takes so much effort to nail down the truth within each area of the generalisation, people who make actual money out there can't be assed wasting their lives trying to deal with it unfortunately. We have better stuff to fill our day with.

                      The "I know some people who" argument is the weakest of them all I'm afraid.

                      The only people desperately trying to cling to the suggestion you can just put a bunch of crap up and throw 20,000 links to it every day and have anything other than extremely short term success or long term but small success are those trying to sell those services.

                      There's no argument from this end in that there is value in crappy content and crappy links actually. They can serve a purpose, especially on timed events but it's a churn and burn model and you will come unstuck .

                      There's no longevity in it in any market that has any real commercial success /competition.

                      If you build the kind of sites which want to rank for some obscure Amazon widget, sure, more power to you, you might be able to employ these low rent methods and pay your rent - just.

                      I don't live in those markets.

                      Almost every single high end autoblogger, type software has been pulled, why?

                      Because it's a dying industry with a trail of failed , disappointed customers.

                  If you disagree "heavily", your point must be valid .

                  Here's what we can do..

                  You disagree heavily, you also know "people".

                  So just to prove your point is valid, let's try a test.

                  Provide a single URL (just one) to unreadable content, that is ranked within Google top positions 1-3 over it's competition (and has been for more than 21 days) for a term with ANY kind of commercial value .

                  It's a simple task , right?

                  You heavily disagree and you know people, so you'll have zero issue showing just one URL that fullfills the criteria of being ranked within Google for a keyword with commercial intent.

                  If making it public, is the excuse, no problem, PM it to me instead.

                  Deal?


                  Besides that, adding filler content can be a great way to add relevance to your site and it's dead easy to manipulate it in a way that it hardly ranks but that it only helps to rank the pages that you want your visitors to end up on.
                  That's an entirely different matter, the issue at hand was will you be able to rank crappy content over and above your competitors readable content. All things being equal with the inbound link type/volume etc.

                  In regards your position that it helps rank quality content.. Within context, it can help having backfill, but only if you're building a certain type of website, the type I think just add noise to the net. I appreciate there's a entire army of people building this shit and it worked rather darn well for quite a long time but it's truly a suckers game now in the long term.

                  We build websites that have actual readers who stay on the site and read multiple articles, you can't suddenly throw gibberish in front of them.

                    You disagree heavily, you also know "people".

                    So just to prove your point is valid, let's try a test.

                    Provide a single URL (just one) to unreadable content, that is ranked within Google top #1 position over it's competition (and has been for more than 21 days) for a term with ANY kind of commercial value .

                    It's a simple task , right?
                    You don't see those pages in the serps as those sites are cloaked so you get redirected to a different domain right away.

                    And no I'm not going to show sites that don't belong to me, neither by PM

                    For the rest, you whitehatters will never admit that there are more ways that lead to Rome so I'm not gonna do any additional effort to convince you. My time is more valuable then having pointless conversations.

                    Just wondering where you pull those 20k links from, read back my comments and I didn't mention any about that. Recipe to fail fast yes. Is that how all auto bloggers functioned? By throwing a whole bunch of spam at it?

                      I always know in advance when pressed for any evidence that truly fulfils the criteria, it's going to be met with tumble-weed.

                      Or somebody shows me some position 5 rank for a bloody toaster that's taken them 6 months , earned them $50 and and cites it as a measure of success without a hint of irony.

                      For the record, my background is a trillion miles from white hat. You're absolutely right, there's a great number of ways to reach Rome, whether they are optimal or provide a sustainable sane living which you can rely on in the long term is entirely another matter.

                      For the record Dennis, I took a look at your website and agreed with a number of points you made in your pieces.

                        Apparantly you got stuck in the grey area as you have no clue what I'm talking about.

                        And no quality content is not vital at all, not even a tiny bit important to be successful.

                        You just don't know how, hard to admit ey!

                        Oh wait... now you start to add conditions, that's something new

                        Maybe in the far future Google comes up with something that won't make my method sustainable anymore and then you've proven your point.

                        ps: The bounce rate of cloaked site is 0%, so what you ramble about time on site lol, we even have to manipulate the bounce rate to not make it look to unnatural.

                        And that's exactly why auto blogging doesn't work for the masses, the developers of those softwares only want to take advantages of the noobs and once it becomes to hard they pull the plug.

                          Conditions were not added, but referred to from my FIRST post to you.

                          There's a rather substantial difference between the two positions.

                          "---------------------Quality content is not vital----------------" .

                          Unfortunately, you have a habit of replying very generically like this..

                          Even more of an issue , the statements don't relate to what was stipulated in the post you "heavily disagreed" with.

                          It's just too time consuming to keep breaking down the randomness of your posts.

                          Almost ANY statement can stand as accurate when out of context.

                          Readable content isn't required for many ventures.

                          That doesn't negate the point or post I made/replied to.

                    Did I say that auto generated content will outrank great content, all things being equal.

                      I said that great content will always outrank spun crap all things being equal due to the various factors.

                      You said you heavily disagreed so by default that means you disagree with that statement.

                      That's how conversation typically works.

                      If you're heavily disagreeing with my post, I have to assume you've read it.

                      I made the specific point to somebody that quality content is vital ( within the conditions I specified) and will long term outrank crap content in Google all things being equal.

                      Making generic statements as the one above - which again are SO open to long term discussion don't help focus the debate. Words like "heaps" and "loads" etc , mean nothing to me out of context.

                      That's my last on it my friend.

      h1 tags are the most important if you ask me. Get the keyword in the tag, then build a raw url link to the page.

    What are your "go to" SEO and backlinking strategies? What have you found the most effective for you?

    For me...

    I use Fiverr for quality backlinks. However, not by searching for "backlinks" or anything like that, as they are usually spammy, poor quality links. Here's a better strategy:
    1. Go to Fiverr
    2. Search for "post on my blog" or "write a post on my blog"
    3. From there, sort through everyone's blogs. Generally there are a couple high PR blogs in there where the owner doesn't know how much their blog is worth!
    4. Write up an article/ post with your backlink!

    Another SEO strategy I use is expired domains. There are tons of high PR domains that expire everyday. I generally scan some expired domain name sites like: hxxp://www.expireddomains.net and check out if any quality domain names expired. If I can nab a quality PR4 or PR5 domain name, it's like picking up someone else's years long work for a couple bucks!

    These are just two of my favorite strategies, please share yours below!

        Yep! Obviously I try to fill the blog with quality articles and content. But a lot of the time, especially if the domain is related to my niche, I have a huge edge over the competition when it comes to ranking for specific keywords.

        Better yet, a lot of the time these expired domain names have a bunch of backlinks that are still in use and hanging around out there pointing to your site already!

      I also rely heavily on the OP's tactic of buying auctioned or expired domains and repurposing them for a PBN. It's the back bone of my ranking strategy.

      In addition, I've been getting a lot of value out of creating a Web 2.0 pyramid to not only supply my non-critical (URL, Brand Misc) anchors, but also to rank monetizable Web 2.0s that make money themselves.

      Tier 1: Monetizable Web 2.0s: InfoBarrel, Seekyt, Whizzley, Hubpages, etc.
      Tier 2: Web 2.0 Farm created by FCS Networker
      Tier 3: 2nd layer of FCS 2.0s
      Tier 4: Spam from various sources using GSA

      The end result is powerful high PA/DA links and a set of money making network sites.

      This is actually true with a couple of things that needs to be added.
      1) get out more - wear clothes that has your website on it. People will then look at it and link back to their fb page / instagram with a pic of it and maybe one of those people will have a follow, index blog that will count as a backlink
      2) Have more sex - while having sex promote your site. It can pass on to other people.
      3) Doing drugs can make you work harder and your link building will be up to par.
      4) Drive a faster car - make sure to put stickers of your website on your car. IT wil stand out

    When ranking the keywords use anchor text varyingly, google webmasters will give u an idea what keywords are ranking for a particular page (phrase keyword"), you will get list of related keywords linking to that particular page. so when backlinking make sure that u use those keywords as anchor text for search engine rankings.

    Wow I'm surprised at how this thread turned out.

    There is nothing new under the sun, latest great SEO strategies? Depends on what you are looking at doing.

    Someone earlier mentioned interviews, those are gold, I'm always surprised at how many people seem to shy away from doing interviews, they supply traffic, reputation, and strong backlinks.

    Social signals don't make a huge difference with SEO, but it can sure help your content go viral. Going viral is really what most SEO is about.

    If you can't go viral than you can just fake it, that's where link buying comes into play and those kinds of things.

    I also find that guest blogging is still a great way to drive traffic and backlinks. Proper guest blogging that is, I haven't bought a service so far that has done it properly, most services seem to just blast your blog out on an old spammmed outed network.

    What Niko says is correct, I was doing competition research the other day and I was getting frustrated by the redirects, that's some sneaky stuff. I don't deal with all of that sneaky redirect SEO stuff, but it's definitely out there. I find it easier to just try to go viral and become involved in my niche.

    Lot's of ways to skin a cat.

      None of the options are easy really.

      I am just surprised that everyone always associates sneaky redrects with massive spam.

      Well not surprised really but it can be done without and then the results can last for a long time to come as the only reason those sites tank are those spam penalties, nothing more nothing less.

      Cause of the redirect the bounce rate is the best you can ever get, and by using other sneaky ways you can create a 100% CTR to Amazon or any other affiliate program.

      I just setup a site with someone that contacted me on my blog, he created the content and posted it, I will do the linkbuilding. We're using an expired PR4 domain, the pages were indexed within 8 hours and are all ranking at page 2/3 for the titles now. By building new links we can modify the anchor text of the domain and make it more relevant and I'm sure that will push us to page one to start generating traffic.

      It won't be a lot, but with a few 1000 indexed pages you can easily get let's say 100 visitors/day, scale and it adds up rather quickly. Others use sites with a million pages and pull in like 1000 visitors/day. That's a lot of traffic for such a little amount of work/investment. All based on long tail buying keywords, who needs to rank for main keywords ever again when you have an unlimited supply of well converting long tail traffic.

      M3C wants proof for something competitive but it doesn't matter at all, and the proof is out in the open, just Google those churn & burn niches. People think they really rank based on a 1 page squeeze page, or is there something going on behind it what most aren't able to see? People rank the TOUGHEST keywords all year long with this strategy, although in that case, yes for a short time.

      Like I said I'm doing a small test project now with someone, and I see we just popped up for a "best ......." keyword with 33.000 exact searches at #134 in a pretty competitive electronics niche, and then we haven't even spend any time aiming to rank that, besides that the whole site is optimized around that key phrase, #134 is nothing of course but it does show it's on the right track and the content is totally unreadable. Doesn't even make any sense.

        Wow, that's some interesting stuff.

        Most of my work has been with large companies and firms so going viral hasn't always been too difficult, usually they have a large social presence that we can leverage and then it's easier for us to increase their site authority and rankings.

        I'd be interesting to see some more information on the kind of work you are talking about though. Definitely a completely different approach as to what we have been doing.

      Wait did you just say scraped content is what is new in 2014? :confused:

      This thread gets 5 stars, finally we get a glimpse at Kevin's marketing tricks. (pun intended and delightful, also kidding but you knew that)

      So what's new? Same old same old: do things the right way, don't stomp around leaving giant footprints, look legit and BE legit (-ish). The same links that didn't rank you last year are unlikely to rank you this year and social is for traffic not for ranking as a general rule.

    Today, content marketing is the best way to increase your website rankings in search engines. Quality and informative content is good for SEO.
    Moreover, Social media is the best way to share ideas and knowledge over the network and promote website.

    Lots of interesting points. For me, I try to teach my clients about Page Authority and Alexa ranking first and foremost. I have found if they understand the concept of why to be unique in planning any form of digital marketing, they will prepare content in the correct way to begin with, and then it becomes less spammy by nature. Understanding the traffic and analytics that come from any website is massively important in preparing any form of SEO. Having a high bounce rate may not be a bad thing, depending on the home page design. Getting people to visit the target page by all means necessary is the task. If you have to use social media to drive traffic, then so be it. As "SEOists", our job is to get more sales from the internet for our clients. Different sites require different methods of acquisition. Usually, when I see high authority blogs explaining the 10 best SEO methods for 2014, I run a mile. Why?, because that means all marketers on the internet will be trying the same tactics, and guess what - that then becomes a 'spammy' practice. My final point is that anyone engaging in SEO must be prepared to be unique and try some things that others are not doing. If you focus all your efforts the same as everyone else, you will be lost in the crowd.

    A lot is said about content being king for good SEO, but people need to still find your good content to link to it. Just creating great blog posts won't get you top ranking if no one knows about your posts to decide to link to it.

    There are strategies to getting the word out about your great content some people can decide to link to it.

    -- Press Releases
    -- Blog posting on PR3 or higher blogs
    -- Social Media

    These are just a few.

    This might sound crazy, but from what I've seen in the search results backlinks don't matter for a lot of search terms, at least not like they used to.

    I'm seeing a lot of sites that are ranking for some big buying terms with 0 backlinks, just because they have a very high DA, usually over 50+ and are authority type sites.

          I don't even know what to say to this.
          An actual keyword would have been better, still your #1 SERP position is a PR6 which means it's an older established page with links pointing at the ranked page.

          Pages only obtain PR from links, even If those are internal links. You've skipped the internal link sources.

          Those PR0 pages could mean those specific pages haven't had public PR updated, not that it matters.

          We can guess all day with a screenshot that hides the important part, the URLs & keyword. Stop using Traffic Travis & do the competition research, you'll find links, especially on competitive keywords.

          I'm assuming when you said DA you were referring to Moz's DA metric. If so, then yes, what I said is true. There are zero webpages ranking in Google based on DA.

          If you were just referring to the general authority of a domain, and not Moz's metric, that is a different discussion.

    What's this latest new buzzing boggling hype about content and social ? You won't shoot to top as soon as you post a mind blowing article on your blog and sharing it on social sites (unless you are a news site). That's utter BS. Unless you build quality links you can't think about ranking on top.

  • Here's a very effective SEO technique that I use time and time again:

    Go to backlinkwatch and enter in your competitor's website, click "check backlinks" , you will be given a list of the backlinks sources, the anchor text used on those backlink sources, and whether or not the backlink is dofollow.

    Now, you should focus on the sources that offer dofollow backlinks. Go to those sites and see if you can place your backlinks there too! Try this technique; it works very well.

    A solid SEO performance in 2014 is going to be made on looking at what happened in 2013, and what these changes mean both strategically and tactically for SEO. Content marketing will move from buzzword to mature marketing movement in 2014.
    2014 will be the year of mobile SEO. If you don't have a mobile-optimized website, this needs to be your top priority in terms of SEO and design investments for 2014. While talking about Guest blogging,It has exploded in the past year, and it's going to remain one of the most effective means of building quality inbound links, traffic, and branding exposure in 2014.

      Content marketing has done that already. It's been discussed in generic trade rags, and I think the buzzword is a bit passe.

      Mobile - I wholeheartedly agree. I think 2013 was the breakthrough year in my home country at least. Insane growth and very strong ecommerce opportunities.

      Google's number one recommendation seems to be responsive design which essentially means the same content accross all devices. In that case there's no "mobile SEO", but just plain old SEO and serving a mobile optimized site to devices that benefit from it. Maybe that's semantics to you, but I'm a web developer who actually builds these things. I like my vocabulary to mean something.

      It's really up to Google if they give any benefit in mobile search to mobile optimized websites. I think it's likely they'll do, eventually at least.
