The following post will be a long one. Right now i’m totally buzzing, too much caffeine, so be prepared for a word dump.
Basically i am going to tell you exactly what i am going to be doing in 2013 to dominate my niche.
No $37 eBook. This sh*t is free, i don’t care about giving it away because none of you guys are competing with me in anyway.
So lets get started.
What It Takes To Rank…
I have basically reverse engineered the Google algorithm. Right now Panda and Penguin have taken out a lot of my dumbass competition, ranking quickly has never been this easy.
Basically all you need to do is sort out on-page factors and then sort out off-page factors. There are a million and one things that Google counts, however the main ones are as follows:
Off-page ranking factors
Pr + Relevance: It’s all about this. Here is what i am doing right now. I am buying up expired domains like crazy from Godaddy auctions. I am getting PR3 domains for $20, pr4′s for less than $60. You need to get ones with a bunch of links and then get them for a good price. I use a kickass tool to snipe these, i will be explaining more about this in a later post. But if you really want to find out, i am sure the info is out there for free on the web somewhere.
Right now im spending like $2k a month on these domains and building my own network. I have basically figured out i can rank for anything. It is simply a question of how much. Would you be willing to spend $5k on domains to rank #1 for a keyword that will make you $100 a day. I think so, it’s what i am doing. Its just a matter of picking the right keywords and figuring out how much.
Now i understand a lot of you don’t have this kind of budget. You can start out small. But this is what is killing it right now.
I also buy pr names from brokers.
I am also buying blog posts on relevant sites with PR. This works great.
Brute force still helps: I have tonnes of spun content. I add them to web 2.0′s or basically anything SE Nuke can make. Then i fire as many crappy links at them as possible. You can get a VPS with these tools pre loaded. I basically have this stuff running 24/7 and its just another method that allows me to rank.
Blog networks work still: That being said, i wont point these at my main money sites anymore. The risk does not seem to be worth the reward. Simply put, Google will go after big networks and take them down eventually.
You can still see a good ROI through them though. You just need to do the work. The ones that allow unlimited submissions are good. I am using Article Ranks, UAW and ALN. Right now i am pointing them at web 2.0 domains. I basically make a page on a web 2.0 site. For example Blogspot.com or WordPress.com. I then fire hundreds and hundreds of spun articles at these. I will basically rank a totally crap page quickly by doing this. I will also throw my automated VPS links at it as well.
Right now i have about 100 of these sites ranking. Some for keywords that get as many as 100k searches a month. They all bring me sales and traffic. I just build them and forget. I can launch maybe 2 or 3 of these a day if i work hard. Spam them to death with links and rank them.
Once they rank i sometimes add more pages, more content and stuff like that. Shockingly most of them still rank with crappy content or little content. My competitors must hate me.
I then use these sites as a buffer, i will link them to my money sites as well and transfer the juice that way and use them as a buffer between my sites and blog networks.
Social media links help but not as much as you would expect.
Honestly i have pages ranking with like 100 words on the page and ads everywhere. These are my churn and burn sites and are basically ranked through brute force of links. There is no point writing 1000 word articles for these types of sites.
Quality content sort of helps. That being said, when you are building up an authority site, you need to be much more cognizant of the following:
Usability of site: Google sucks at determining quality content still. You might hate on me for saying this but it’s true. The fact i can rank so much bullshit so easily proves this. That being said, if you have an affiliate site that has like a 30 second time on site, 1.1 pageviews average, you are going to get canned by Google eventually. What you actually need to do is get people to look around your site. Make it sticky. Get them to view 5 pages and spend 5 minutes on the site. You will get rewarded for this, guaranteed Google can tell this stuff and its an important factor in staying in Googles good books. Especially with newish sites.
Other stuff that helps: Images help. H1 tags help (Don’t listen to people who say they don’t). Linking out to trusted authority sites helps. Embedding Youtube videos helps. Content length probably helps a little. But it is more important to create a site people browse than a site that bores people with 1000 words of fluff. How good your site is actually matters. How long your content is doesn’t matter as much.
Authorship helps: Google wants to stop no named people setting up a thousand EMD’s and ranking. They want trusted authors. Set up authorship for your sites. Link in your Facebook and Twitter. Circle people who are relevant in your niche. If nothing else it will give you a cool picture next to your content which will definitely increase your CTR from Google back to your site (Which is definitely a small ranking factor in itself).
How To Succeed In 2013
Here is what i am doing right now.
I am working HARD.
I am buying domains. I am buying content. I am building links. I am varying anchor text. I am creating sites that people like, browse, come back to. I am getting traffic through Facebook, Twitter, Youtube as well as Google.
The thing that will allow me to dominate my niche in 2013 is that i have figured out a system to rank a single page on the first page of Google. I am then scaling it FAST. I am building many pages each day. I am creating many sites and domains. I am creating everything from EMD mini sites to huge authority sites. I am using very aggressive and very passive link building techniques. I am hedging my bets.
This is hustle. This is hard work. It’s not easy. And f*ck, it’s not a 1 click solution to anything.
I am taking action. I don’t claim to have the perfect SEO formula. But i know right now, if i write the content, build the links, i will rank first page. I am going to continue to do this all the way to the bank. I am not stopping for anyone.
If things change, i will adapt and i will continue working hard until i make my million. It’s as simple as that. I am not worried about what update Google will bring out next. I am not worried about what my competition is doing. I am not worried about anything. To put it quite simply, i am working like a mad man.
Good luck in 2013. Now go crush it!
