My SEO Experiment

Recommended Posts

Well here i would like to suggest the slow SEO work, I have been doing link building to my sites for a long time and also am doing it as a service in various forums and classis. I have been exprementing a lot. .

Daily work and constant link biuilding helps a lot in SERP improvement, So i always suggest to do the link building work manually, Blasts may be helpful for tier 2 IMO

Exact Match Domain - (My site is way far from exact match domain)

Brand name should be differ from exact domain name so this will never hurt.

2) Keyword In The Domain - (My site doesn't contain even the keyword)

No prob with that at all always utilize content for this or meta tags. But stuff in a right way don't ever stuff keywords for the sake of ranking try to make things natural

3) Ranking HomePage ( I am trying to rank an inner page)

I think this will need 5% more work to do but inner pages have tendency to rank and blogs always rank inner pages mate.

4) Do not Post Spun Articles On Your Own Domain ( I have 90% + most which are just spun articles - They make very little sense but each of them is at least 95% unique)

Don't spin the article mate just make it unique Google have tendency to figure out spin articles too so try to leave this thing.

5) Length Of The Article Should be between 400 to 700. (My article is 11,000+ words long)..

Article should be 400+ words this will impact good on Google but end range you never define so don't worry about that

OK, I'll be the first to say it:

I'm calling shenanigans on this one. 400,000 exact match searches, and first page in less than a month?

C'mon.

Maybe but i think that's a temporary

Were those 300 posts just spun on a synonym level? How long are they?

Care to elaborate on just how you are implementing those tools?

I thought when you said newbie and health niche you were going after some major long tail but its actually 400k EXACT match searches each month?

Care to share a screenshot of the comp. analysis from MS?

I never us auto softwares and I even don't have them. But I have done hard work, all manual stuff in link builing ( I have my own strategies) to rank a website with 2 million search. The site was not even at 100 pages when I started. After 3 weeks it is in 3rd page and still hanging there.

But now, things have changed. Now there are xr and sb. They make things real fast. But I suggest not to use them for your main site. Use it for your backlinks's backlinks.

What do you think?

Good luck with your endeavours...

 

I would be wiry about using content that is not unique and being on the first two pages and that is because the search engines have a human evaluation process along side the automative (robot) process.

 

Anyone can rank any website if they know what they are doing bicos the first phase of ranking is done by a robot, however the next phase is done by humans or your competitors. When you are in the first two pages then you are in the firing line - your site can be discovered by your competitors and if it contains content that does not make sense they will simply report it to google and then the manual check begins or it will eventually be caught by the search engine human evaluation teams. 

 

So my my 2 cents is:

1. Don't tell anyone what the url of your site is (your competitors are watching)

2. If you are on the first two pages - start replacing re-optimised content with unique content

3. carry on  with your link building (if you re in a competitive niche you surely will have to build links)

Can you tell me how you are achieving all of these results? What kind of backlink strategies lots of people are using and which ya think are effective?

 

Keep this mind as it's critical - get RELEVANT backlinks from REAL websites. The theme of the linking domain and the content of your page - are they relevant?

 

The stronger the site you're linking from, the better. And what do i mean by REAL websites? i mean websites that get actual good traffic. Get backlinks from them.

 

DO NOT ever get TIER ONE backlinks from irrelevant websites

Hello, for my part i no more use automatic softwares like GSA for Tier 1, it's too risky. But for Tier 2 or Tier 3, you may use it.

And for Tier 1 backlinks, you need authoritive backlinks, and if possible from websites which are niche revalent to yours.

I agree with your words. If you don't want to takes risks then try to avoid using tools for Tier - 1. Build links from PBN's, Guest post,Web 2.0 and few links from trusted sites will help to get good Bump in the SERP.

Firstly, congratulations on your success so far. It seems as though you put 'taking action' as a higher priority than 'over analysing' and procrastinating. Keep going! (I want to know if the following things have effect on seo or not :)

1) Exact Match Domain = it does help a little if used correctly
2) Keyword In The Domain = yes that still helps, partial match is actually better for long-term than an EMD in my opinion.
3) Ranking HomePage = doesn't make a difference, Google ranks quality pages with good links going to them - it doesn't matter where that page is on a domain.

4) Do not Post Spun Articles On Your Own Domain ( I have 90% + most which are just spun articles - They make very little sense but each of them is at least 95% unique) = perhaps they just haven't caught up with you yet. With a lot of unreadable low quality content you'll eventually get hit by Panda. Maybe if you're content is diverse enough and you're not continually posting about exactly the same subject, you may get away with it for longer. If all of your post are roughly about the same keywords then that's a disaster. But if the post topic is very diversified, who knows, you may get away with it for years. But if those inner pages start ranking, and you start getting traffic, the analytics' metrics would tank the site as well because no one will stay on the page and read content that doesn't make sense. Content uniqueness has very little to do with it actually. Even if you completely copy it off another website, as long as 50% of it is unique, then Google will still index it and consider it as unique content.


5) Length Of The Article Should be between 400 to 700. (My article is 11,000+ words long) = if these articles I just to fatten up the content on your domain, then I guess they are serving their purpose. If you actually want those articles to rank, then the correct word count would be an average of the top 10 sites that are already ranking for the keyword you're trying to rank for.

Keywords in domain does not matters now in 2016. Content is king, so most important thing is writing engaging content which is approximately 1000 to 1500 words. Work on white hat techniques for getting good backlinks.

 

Work on keywords research and find longtail keywords for all your post. Also designing cool infographics will help you to go your content viral.

It's been proven that long-form content works best. Around 1800 words seems to be the magic number.

 

In essence, I think the best thing to do SEO-wise, is to create long, valueable, actionable content, then create backlinks to it.

 

I don't think you can go far wrong with that, providing the backlinks aren't spammy.

 

After that, it's all about the two things that everyone seems to struggle with; patience and consistency.
