Number 1 In Google?

number 1 in google

At the time of this writing, although this blog is number 1 in Google for the keyword phrase “internet business make money online” (without quotes; click here to see it in action) and a number 7 ranking for the keyword phrase “make money on the internet” (without quotes; click here to see it in action), I’m by no means an SEO (Search Engine Optimizaton) expert.

If you don’t know what SEO is, SEO is simply the process of improving your search engine’s ranking for the keywords you are targeting, as I’ve explained before in this post.

As far as SEO is concerned, I’m essentially doing only 4 things to get the results I’ve gotten:

1. Get as many 1 way incoming link from as many sites as possible

This means that you go out there and gather 1 way link from other sites to your site (make sure that the sites you’re trying to gain links from is “do-follow”, or to put in another way “nofollow free”). You can do this via blog commenting, forum signatures, social networking and bookmarking sites, submitting your site to directories, etc.

However, doing this manually is a monotone process which can get VERY time consuming and VERY boring (at least for me). Personally, I really hate doing repetitive tasks like these, which is why I’ve been using professional link building services for my link building campaign for almost 2 years now.

Not only does this save me hundreds of DREADED hours trying to find 1 way incoming links to my site, it saves me the hassle of having to keep track which sites have I submitted to gain a backlink to my site.

I might as well invest my money into professionals who know what they are doing and use the time I saved to focus on other more important larger-scale aspects of my business.

Seeking reciprocal linking partners where “I link to you and you link to me” almost no longer works. You might say that this method still work. But why invest your time and energy soliciting these kinds of links when you can instead build 1 way incoming links by spending the same amount of, if not less, time and effort?

2. Use the keyword you’re targeting as the anchor text for the incoming link

Getting 1 way incoming link to your site is great ONLY when you use the keywords you’re targeting as the anchor text of the link.

For example, let’s say you’re trying to target for the keyword phrase “make money on the internet” (without quotes). When seeking 1 way incoming links from other sites, be sure to make the phrase “make money on the internet” (again without quotes) hyperlinked so that when people click this link, they’ll be taken to your site.

This is VERY important and it will play a huge success in the success of your SEO campaign. The more incoming links (with your targeted keyword phrase as the anchor text) you have, the better your sites’ ranking will be in Google.

CAUTION: If you’re seeking links from a lot of sites, be sure to vary your incoming links a little. You should have at least 3 different but related keyword phrases that you’re targeting.  Doing this will help your site “fly under the radar” so that Google will not penalize you.

3. Make sure to put the keyword you’re targeting into the title tag

Although not as important as the first two factors mentioned above, inserting your targeted keyword phrase into the title tag will help your search engine ranking.

You do this by using the <title></title> tag within your site.

Using the same example again, if you were to target the keyword phrase “make money on the internet” (without quotes), you’d use this:

<title>Make Money On The Internet</title>

You can insert additional words before or after your targeted keywords to make your site look natural to human eyes as well.

4. Make sure that the keyword you’re targeting is mentioned in the body content of your site

This is the least important factor compared to the other three when it comes to ranking your site on Google.

If you can, strive to insert your targeted keyword a few times (DO NOT overdo it) within your site and you should be fine.

So to summarize, if you want to rank well in Google (especially number 1 in Google), you have to:

1. Get as many 1 way incoming link from as many sites as possible

2. Use the keyword you’re targeting as the anchor text for the incoming link

3. Make sure to put the keyword you’re targeting into the title tag

4. Make sure that the keyword you’re targeting is mentioned in the body content of your site

Last but not least, make sure you IMPLEMENT the methods outlined above. If you simply read and learn and you don’t do anything about it, you won’t get any results. Period.

If you have trouble motivating yourself to take action, then please read this beneficial article by my mentor Jonathan Leger. I’m sure it will help move you forward to take the actions you should have taken ages ago.

I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please leave them in a comment below…

  • Julia at Blog Finder on June 23, 2009

    Thank you for sharing this great information. I agree that SEO is a mix of online and offline website optimization. Online optimization is primarily link building and offline optimization includes the optimization of the content, meta tags, headings for search engines. The best keywords should be wisely used in the text, titles, and meta tags to rank better in search engines.
