Just recently I have been performing some aggressive tests with SEO strategies and I am proud to say that I have been able to fine tune by strategy. I rank at #1 now with 70,000 comp in just under 2 weeks (with a NEW domain). We can all imagine such kind of power now. All those fighters out there who are killing themselves with SEO and Linkbuilding without seeing any results, here is my best advice to you Smart Link Building - Don't create spam profile links... while creating a profile page, spend some time to write out the profile and put up a picture. It is pointless to get a link unless and until it sticks. - Don't spam comments on the blog... Scrapebox is great but let's face it... you are in this for the long term. - Don't buy links... it is pointless to spend $25 bucks for a PR3 link. Instead, you should spend the money on articles and publicize them out around the Internet. - Don't spam anchor text... to be honest, spamming that one anchor text for 3 months continuously isn't going to help you get any traction. You will be sandboxed by Google. - Don't create massive link wheels... don’t bother about what "Link Wheel Gurus" have said in the past. If you make over 5 spokes, you will get caught and devalued. P.S. - In my testing I've seen incredible rank increases almost immediately (literally within 30 minutes) after creating a properly built link wheel. - Don't start a war with the Google spider. Becoming a value provider is what it is all about and it’s not about being a "Get Rich Quick Spammer". - Don't do links pages. "3 Way Links" program don’t work and don’t get involved in them. Close those accounts immediately. You shouldn’t get in this whole process and immediately incorporate these details in your business plan. Just get it right and start making some money now.
