Have You Ever Wondered How Others Really Rank High For Keywords Quickly And Claim White Hat?
My name is Matthew Boley and I would like to talk about what to look for when you’re talking to an SEO expert and the tactics working right now.
How many times have you heard, content is king, content is everything, make sure you have your alt tags right, make sure your on-page SEO is perfect or you won’t rank. I have also heard “make sure you don’t have duplicate content on your site or it’s just not possible to rank, because you will get penalized so bad you won’t rank good at all”.
Well I am here to tell you that all of it is true to a certain percent, but it doesn’t mean you can’t rank without using those tactics. In this article I am going to talk about how I utilized white hat SEO tactics and ranked for competitive keywords in only 1 month with just under 150 backlinks.
I built two SEO sites and ranked them for terms like cheap SEO and 257 other terms in only 1 month. I hit rank 2 in the world in that 1st month for the term Cheap SEO. It moves between 1 – 5 though on a daily basis, so if you check please note it moves through all of those spots. Not only did I hit rank 2 for that term, but I also took over, affordable SEO, and many other terms like those as well. 79 of the terms all got over 160 exact hits per month and I held rank 1 with.
50 of the terms held over 500 exact hits per month and held between the ranks 1 – 3. The rest of the terms were all higher and up to 1600 hits per month, these ranged from 1 – 6 on the first page. So at this point you’re probably wondering how I did this in 1 month and how do I even know this is real? I will get to that part, but first I want to tell you more that you won’t believe below.
Laughing At Myths And Proving Others Lead You Down A Long and Expensive Path
Myth: Onpage SEO
- The website has a terrible density for all main keywords.
- I have duplicate content on over 45 pages of the site including both page content and titles.
- I downloaded a free template off of the web and put up some text on it.
- I used posts instead of pages and did redirects on every page 2 times with a WordPress site.
- I didn’t fill in any of my alt tags.
- I don’t have author details filled out
This list keeps going on, but with much more minor specifics involved that many overtime thought helped you rank up.
Myth: Social Media Marketing
As we all know, many have sworn that social media marketing can help you rank up for terms, it gives authority etc..
- I don’t have 1 social media account for the website that ranked for Cheap SEO in 1 month.
- The site has never had any type of like, plus, pin, mention, share, etc.. Nothing!
Most think you need to get as many backlinks as possible and some know quality over quantity. Which one won? The quality over quantity won very easy and will continue to forever.
- By the end of 1 month, I only had 147 total backlinks submitted and 43 of them indexed/registered in SEOMOZ.
- I have done nothing to the sites in 4 months and they are both holding strong for all of their terms. The site has attained 100 natural links to it since I have stopped submitting 100%.
- I didn’t use forum links, blog comments, directory links, web 2.0 profiles, or any spam of this nature.
While all good SEO’s won’t give you exact details on how I did it, you’re more than welcome to check one of my sites out and backlinks at http://www.cheapseo-services.com. This is the site that ranks for Cheap SEO and many others.
I am not saying it’s not a good idea to have on-page SEO or social media. I am just letting you know, that you shouldn’t go nuts doing it if your only intentions are ranking for organic keywords, because they aren’t really needed. If you have a limited budget, it’s obvious that back linking at this point is your best bang for the buck. I myself on my main marketing sites do everything, I don’t want to take any chances down the road on whether or not Google changes their mind and something becomes very important. I even W3C validate my main websites, I perform on-page SEO, I have social media accounts, daily blogs, and much more.
Please note, the SEO performed on the site shown was submitted in a very specific manner and utilizes some very particular diversity ratios for back linking purposes. I utilize anchor text, platform, IP, and I even break those down as well when submitting. For example I use natural keywords; I use my TLD plus keywords, natural keywords plus TLD, and the TLD by itself. I also mix TLD with inner pages for anchor even. The backlinks were submitting over the 1 month time period and not all in 1 day like most firms do. This was also hand submitted; I don’t and will never use software to do any work
