How I Achieved 7 Top Ten Google Rankings Without Breaking a Sweat
|Copyright 2008 Alexis Dawes
Back in November 2004 I discovered a way to get a top 10 ranking in Google. I tested the technique for 3 months before I shared my findings with the world.
Some people worked my technique and are still holding on to their top Google rankings. Others criticized it, and decided not to give it a go.
Since November 2004 my targeted keywords have gotten more competitive. Webmasters have gotten swifter and saavier with their techniques. New tactics for gaining top 10 listings have emerged, and are enjoying their place in the spotlight.
And here I am still sitting blissfully with the same top 10 Google rankings that I had nine months ago. In fact, I've added several more in July 2008, just to make sure my rankings weren't maintaining because of some seniority algorithm. (Hey, you never know with Google!)
Here's what I've discovered in that time frame.
While Google still hesitates for weeks (but more often for months) to list new sites in their ranking structure, optimized pages from sites that alaready have a good Google ranking get spidered and listed much faster.
Using this precise theory I got a #1 rank for a targeted keyphrase within 3 days.
But unfortunately it's not easy to find sites that have great Google rank, and will permit you to freely promote your product, service or web site.
Here are two such sites that'll give you an easy in to a possible top Google ranking--
EzineArticles.com is one of the best kept secrets for getting top Google rankings.
Articles submitted there are often spidered within 1-3 days. A well optimized article can easily land in a top 10 slot.
Take for example the keyphrase- "ingrown pubic hair"
An article featured at EzineArticles.com holds the #1 position at Google for this targeted keyphrase.
How popular is such a keyphrase?
Well according to the Overture Search Term Suggestion Tool, 975 searches were done in June 2008 for that very phrase. And in my personal experience, Google almost always yields more searches than Overture.
The author of the article is promoting an ingrown hair treatment spray, within the resource box of the article.
So he's receiving a boatload of free traffic to his site, because of this particular article.
Still not convinced? Here's another...
Epage.com is a popular classified ad site, with a wide variety of categories.
Often times if you optimize an ad for a specific keyphrase the ad will get picked up by Google, and placed in the top 10.
For instance, the Overture Search Term Suggestion Tool says that "hammer strength exercise equipment" receives 60 searches per month.
A search for hammer strength exercise equipment at Google places an epage.com ad for in the #4 slot.
Now some of you are probably thinking that's a nice trick for keyphrase's that target small niches. But does it work for competitive keyphrases like "fix bad credit" or something along those lines?
No... it doesn't.
This technique only works with smaller, niche targeted keyphrases.
But if you're an online entrepreneur who develops specialty sites, centreed around niche topics, this is one technique you can use to bring an ongoing flow of traffic to your site.
I run a sinus infection information web site, and for the past 6 months this is the only tactic I've used to generate traffic. In fact, it took me exactly two days to get a #1 position for an ad using my targeted keyphrase. (Today that same ad hovers around #3-#6, depending on the dance Google is doing.)
The great thing is I earn AdSense revenue from that particular site almost every single day.
The other point you should keep in mind is that this tactic doesn't work with all classified ad web sites.
There are literally only a handful classified ad sites that get spidered by Google on a regular basis, AND have ad's consistently showing up in the top 10.
So don't go blasting your ad to 50,000 different sites, cause it's not going to work. There's an art to doing it the right way.
Either way, it's definitely worth trying the two sites listed in this article. Targeted traffic is always good traffic, no matter how much it is.
