Hey guys & gals,

Figured I'd do a little check-in and tell you guys how I'm getting along using the methods outlined by Nick here on Rankers Paradise.

Before I get into it, though... let me explain a few things that make my situation a little unique.

1. I've been doing this since 2009. So, I do have a bit of experience under my belt.

2. Many of my sites are aged and/or authoritative. I do, however, have several newer sites I'm utilizing these ranking strategies on as well.

3. My URL structure and on-page elements on my older pages are NOT great and NOT aligned with what Nick preaches here. This may be a reason that some of my rankings aren't as awesome as I would like them to be.

4. I work in several different niches and utilize Amazon, Adsense, Clickbank, and other sources for revenue.

Alright... let's get into it, shall we?

I'm a bit of an over-achiever and tend to stretch myself paper thin 24/7. The reason I'm prefacing this with that statement is because over the past few months I've busted my butt and I've been working to rank roughly 16 different pages using the web 2.0 method along with some of the PBN packs mentioned here on Rankers Paradise.

Here are the search volumes and Keyword Revealer competitive scores for my 16 primary keywords for these pages:

KW1 - 3600 | 25

KW2 - 5400 | 28

KW3 - 1900 | 22

KW4 - 2400 | 21

KW5 - 2400 | 20

KW6 - 3600 | 25

KW7 - 2900 | 15

KW8 - 3600 | 6

KW9 - 4400 | 20

KW10 - 1600 | 35

KW11 - 2900 | 23

KW12 - 880 | 16

KW13 - 4400 | 19

KW14 - 2400 | 5

KW15 - 2400 | 5

KW16 - 3600 | 5

Alright... so, what have my results been so far? Pretty promising. I haven't had any #1s as of yet, but I'm doing okay. I think a couple of things are holding me back on some of my pages such as the URL structure and on-page which I'm probably going to address this week.

Another thing is that I may have built links slightly too fast on some of these. As I mentioned above, a lot of my sites are aged and have authority so I figured I could up the pace a little for building backlinks on them. I may have been wrong. And now I'll have to reassess and figure out what to do going forward because for some of these I've built quite a few links already.

All that said.... here are my results for each keyword.

KW1 - #49 (previous) > #24 (current)

KW2 - #35 (previous) > #6 (current)

KW3 - #25 (previous) > #10 (current)

KW4 - #33 (previous) > #18 (current)

KW5 - #21 (previous) > #6 (current)

KW6 - NOT IN TOP 100 (previous) > #18 (current)

KW7 - #41 (previous) > #14 (current)

KW8 - NOT IN TOP 100 (previous) > #9 (current)

KW9 - NOT IN TOP 100 (previous) > #4 (current)

KW10 - NOT IN TOP 100 (previous) > #4 (current)

KW11 - #30 (previous) > #16 (current)

KW12 - #20 (previous) > #14 (current) Has been as high as #8

KW13 - #35 (previous) > #17 (current)

KW14 - NOT IN TOP 100 (previous) > #8 (current)

KW15 - NOT IN TOP 100 (previous) > #4 (current)

KW16 - NOT IN TOP 100 (previous) > #3 (current)

Going forward... I think I'm going to change up my on-page and URL structures to get those elements where they need to be (i.e. just the main keyword in the URL, mentions of the exact keyword a few times in the content, etc).

For backlinks... I'm probably going to start doing just 1-3 links per week on each of these from here on out. I'm getting the feeling that indexing 1-3 per day is too much, honestly. Some of my keywords have actually gone down after month 2 for whatever reason. I'm thinking it may be the link velocity being too high.

Nick, if you have any recommendations - I'm all ears.

But I think for me at least the on-page elements and slowing down the links a bit may help. Let me know what you think, though.

Regardless of the fact that I'm not in the top spots for every keyword... I've made bigger jumps using the methods provided by Nick than I have in a long, long time. It definitely works. I'm still happy with the progress. I just need to pin down the issues so I can get those #1 rankings and start making more money.

Cheers guys,

Brad

Thanks for the awesome update Brad. I love to know how you guys are doing.

Have you checked bounce rate?

If your bounce rate is high you need to be more focused for your particular keyword and as you have identified already....improve your content.

For each keyword do you have the best content? Honestly....get your partner to take a look at your site and then the top ten ranking sites....ask her if your content is better.

I have a feeling that if you add to your content you are going to see some big jumps in the SERPs. Without taking a look at your sites I can't be exact at what you need to do.

You are on the up....which is what counts.

You are spreading yourself a little thin too.....don't want you to hit burn out.

If you establish that one keyword that has a good return where the top ranking sites don't have great outstanding content then focus your time on that one more.

Fewer quality backlinks is the way to go now.

Keep us updated Brad....

Bounce rate isn't too bad. I don't think it's my content. All of my pages have better content than all of the competing sites sitting on page 1 for each keyword.

When I was talking about my content I was just meaning possibly needing to mention the exact keyword a bit more to improve keyword density and then change the URLs.

For some of these pages I have my site URL something like mydomain.com/KEYWORD-details-and-full-review/ or similar whereas it should probably just be mydomain.com/KEYWORD

Pumping up keyword density could work....aim for around 1%.

If it was me I wouldn't change the URL.

I'll just add some more content, try to get the keyword density at or around 1%, and then build 1-3 decent links a week and see where it goes from there.

I do have some landing on page 1. I just want to get them all in the top 3.

Do you have any articles to support those pages? Maybe would help

On most of them, yes, I do have supportive content that links to the money page. There are a few that could probably use another dose of relevant content linking to them, though. Might give that a go as well.

Hi, to all.

 

Brad .. that's good result. keep going. Wish you all the very best for it.

 

I would like to share my results as well.

A few days ago, I asked nick that my ranking is not good .. what should i do?

 

I was building backlinks for two pages at the same time ( Same domain as well ). one page was not giving results and other was the same as well.

But, yesterday, One page is showing up at number 5. ( which is really exciting )

 

However, i would like to add that the other page i was targeting, is at number 9.

I made backlinks so fast for the first or second month & that is why i guess results are not good yet. it's been 4 months for that keyword.

 

Nick I want to ask a couple of question

A) Almost 50% of the backlinks that i built have unique and manually written content. but rest are the spun that i use for saving time. now, my question is : is there any chance that I get out of SERP anytime due to those spun content?

 

B) my DA & PA has increased but with a spam score ( Moz ) of 2. is there any reason to worry? 

 

I had previously built some forum and comment links and that's might be the reason of spam score. 

will it gonna hurt in the future?

 C) Also, the page i am ranking at 5 is having 24 backlinks. now, should i throw some more backlinks to hit the spot or wait for some days? 

Let me know your thoughts.

Zen224: great news that you have hit no. 5.

The spun content will not harm your site, if anything it's possible that it will have been a waste of time....due to the fact that those web 2 sites fill fall from the index. Go for unique hand written content on tier 1....use the spun content on tier 2.

There is no reason to worry about the spam score. Worry about Google rank and not metrics from other companies.

Just concentrate on building good quality tier 1 backlinks from high PA web 2 sites. Don't worry about the spam score.

C) If you have built and indexed those 24 links over a 30 day period then you can crack on building more links....only index a few each day...3 max. You certainly need to build more backlinks to hit the top stop, just make sure you do it slow and steady.

Congrats on the results, zen. Good to hear that others are starting to see some decent rankings from this.

I've used spun content on about 1/2 of my backlinks as well, if not more. But this was manually spun where I wrote up an article for the niche, then went through and spun it on the sentence, phrase, and word level by hand so it comes out unique, but almost immaculate for reading, too.

I've done hand spun articles for backlinks for years now and they've worked pretty well. If you do it just right, Google can't tell the difference. Their bots are smart, but not smart enough to catch a good manual spun article.

Matthew Woodward (another IM blogger) has a great video about it. He actually goes further into spinning than I do (I think he's a bit too paranoid with his stuff), but the gist of what he says explains things well. I won't link to it here, because I'm not sure Nick would appreciate it that. But it's a good read if you wanna look it up.

Wanted to give a little update here...

This isn't about rankings, but about revenue.

One of the sites I made for a Clickbank product has just now crossed the $300 mark in sales. And that's over the course of 7 days.

It has also generated $84.50 in Adsense in that same timeframe.

I ranked this one using just expired Tumblrs, new web 2.0s, and social signals. Got the tumblrs and web 2.0 blogs for free and the social signals cost me a whopping $1.50.

So, $1.50 spent - $384.50 made (so far). I'd say that's a pretty sexy ROI 🙂

Still early in the day as well (only noon), so this site could still pull in more sales for today.

Awesome, that is some super sexy results.

Proof that seo does not have to be expensive.
