Conventional wisdom would suggest that getting your weblog ranked on page 1 of Google for a competitive keyword phrase is easier said than done.
In actuality, getting my weblog ranked on page 1 of Google for the competitive keyword phrase Social Media Money Makers has proven to be easier than expected.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been following a new methodology using both free and paid for Internet Marketing Tools that help me to identify high quality backlinks to prove a point: you can in fact get your weblog listed on page 1 of Google for a competitive keyword phrase, so long as you adhere to a few basic SEO principles..
Identify and acquire high quality Backlinks from Authority sites
Leave relevant “anchor text coded” comments on the high PR sites
Optimize your weblog articles using solid on page SEO methodologies
Don’t eat the elephant in one bite – drip feed/link to these high PR site
Right before the ball dropped in Times Square to close the decade, I began to deploy my new model. As a matter of fact, I uploaded my last YouTube Video of 2009 at midnight (EST) showing how a single well placed anchor text comment on an Authority site (Mashable) bumped my Alexa Score by over 10,000 in less than 30 minutes.
On December 31, 2009 my Alexa Score was 251 and change. Today (January 12th) my Alexa Score is 219 and change and my traffic has also seen a spike in my visitor count. I know my writing skills haven’t improved dramatically in these past 2 weeks.
I make sure to optimize my blog articles with properly coded H1 tags using All-in-One SEO-Pack. I visit Google keyword tool for search counts and download the TEXT file into Market Samurai and Micro Niche Finder to make sure the keywords I want to get ranked on have the right mix in my 1st and past paragraphs and meet the 2-3% mix, spread through out the entire blog article. I have my special word press plug-in pushing each article to my social networks, using the ShareThis widget and I make sure to track the key metrics to see if this is working as planned. So far – so good.
I recently bought an eBook from a smart guy via the Warrior Forum on how to increase my exposure and generate even more organic | free traffic using his link wheel model. Phase 2 of this ongoing case study will entail adding links to:
adding to my existing inventory of high quality authority backlink sites in social media marketing so I can compete in the competitive social media marketing space.
I’m a member of a few neat Ning Social Networks. I plan to engage other like-minded members with a survey / contest type combination. My objective will be to measure the number of Facebook Friends visit me Blog vs. my Peers on the various Ning Networks I’m a member of.
As an incentive to provide me input and feedback on my case study, I’ll be offering:
- Google Wave Invitation

- 50% discount on my new e-Book
- The Grand Prize (all of the above)
