Also your domain of http://www.outerbankshome.com/ was purcahsed and online since 1999 so yeah that helps


You have no idea about what I talked about.

It is about content. Start a blog, use relevant keywords and update it daily.

Well it is as simple as this really. I spent many years as an SEO professional and I know exactly the problem with all of it pretty much revolves around the fact that it takes a lot of man-power to compete with bigger companies.

The problem is, everyone is a bigger company when you have little to no startup capital. So the trick is, get a very SUBTLE automation tool to build links and write great content yourself. That's what I do and it works wonders.

Penguin caught the people who tried to mass spam links and it just doesn't work that way. You have to drip, that definitely doesn't mean you can't automate.

Always vary your anchor text, don't build too many links quickly to a brand new website, try to make your links as natural as possible, links from relevant sources always have high quality.

This has been interesting over the last several months. In my specific case, there are many variables. For instance, the domain name I manage/own has been online since 2005. I've targeted specific keywords and have found myself erased from Google for the large percentage keywords/ahref's.

If you have any experience with this next issue, please respond. I took my old site and literally erased it piece by piece, chunck by chunk, page by page over a 2 year span of time. Guess what happened? Yep, rankings decreased...never updated the site (pr3-4-5) and basically, let it sit stale for 2 years. Most recently, I've redesigned and launched again. It's been about 15 days since lift off and the old Bing/Yahoo crews are ranking me well for long tails and dense keywords/20% anchors. Google however is taking much longer than anticipated to index and is currently crawling about 1,000 pages per day (yippy). Only time will tell.

The results thus far are confusing. Google and I went to a party and we both got drunk!

The ranking of my keyword is not good enough, and I think I need to look after some of the above mentioned points. Thanks for such a great resource.

50% Onsite Content, 50% Links. Links are still very important. High page authority links will have a huge effect on your rankings.

this is just one more reminder that there is too much for me to worry about as far as trying to work on "SEO", I'll just continue to publish articles that my clients find interesting and trust that the search engines will reward me for my hard work and good content that obviously serves a purpose.

The best long term plan for keeping your search results high is by keeping your content fresh and relevant.

when did any search engine learn to read content? They can't read content so therefore content can not be as important as everyone claims. I have 8 websites on very competitive first pages and none of them have any content. None!

Great post! Very informative. Thanks for that. Some of the variety backlinks to your website you should include are from high authority sites like posting a video on Youtube and having it link back to your site, reviews from Realsatisfied, and posts on Pinterest with your link on it. Those are working for me right now.

BigToe is right. Google bots can't actually read content except for a few keywords. What they can do is count the amount of text on your site. The more text you have, (which google calls rich and engaging content) the more text the google bots see. There is a text to html ratio that actually affects your position in google ranks. 25%-75% of your content should be text in relation to html content according to SEMrush. How do you accomplish all that text on your pages without boring or having your visitors bounce off your page? Write blogs. Plenty of room for text on your blog posts without crowding out your listing pages. A caveat, the text on your blogs should be really engaging to your audience. Don't fake it and just write filler information. If you write good blogs, hopefully visitors will return for more, resulting in more clicks to your website organically which will boost your position on the page as well. There are many factors in search engine optimization, or SEO. Look at them all.

Google also looks at your page's bounce rate, that helps the bots detect whether the content you have on your site is relevant. If someone finds your site and stays there for awhile it means they found what they're looking for, if they don't then the content is not relevant to them. So, if your bounce rate is high, Google may rank you lower.
