Yeah, you know how competitive the keyword“online marketing blog” in the search engines right?
No.8 in Google out of 43,100,000 results!
This is another screen shot I took when I just searched “online marketing newsletter” in Google:
My CBHelper newsletter ranked in the No.7 position, out of 29,600,000 results in Google!
You’ll see the results vary from time to time so we might slightly be in different positions when you check.
Updated: I got first page rankings on these keywords for sometime but not anymore.
This is because I realized that these high competitive keywords didn’t get me as much traffic as I expected, so I stopped aiming to rank on these keywords.
As one subscriber indicated in the comments, these keyphrases now don’t get many searches in Google.
But this post still shows the possibility of ranking on HIGHLY competitive keywords with my own SEO tactics.
You know, I credit the results to implementing a healthy mix of SEO techniques.
If you got all of your links from social bookmarking sites, if you got all of links from reciprocal links, if you got all of your links from directory submissions…
You are not going to rank as quickly or as highly as you expect, because Google knows that you are pushing hard to build links.
And one day Google may even slap you if they just devalue all the directory links, or all the social bookmark links or things like that.
My advice is, don’t ever put all your “link eggs” in one basket.
This is a good reminder to look at your own link building methods and see how you can diversify.
I will release an honest review on a secret link building tool in a few days that I use to get me tens of thousands of quality backlinks on diverse web sites.
Make sure you stay tuned so you won’t miss anything! 🙂
To your amazing success,
