Use these proven SEO tips and kill the game
Before I start, there is one thing I need to tell you that is somehow pretty misunderstood:
Search engines’ job is to provide the best search results, they are getting good at recognizing great content and quality backlinks… though this doesn’t mean you can’t use tools to build those links, it means you just have to be smart about your link building.
Writing great content and hoping to get it to rank just because it is great is pretty much like writing no content at all… you need to build links to that content, both internal and external.
Search engines can not rank content only by reviewing likes, shares and quality of content… if they could, they would be called quiz engines, and not search engines.
Social signals are important mainly for social traffic and as a signal for popularity, but it’s mainly backlinks that rank you on the engines… unless you have a huge blog like mine that ranks without backlinks.
A few years ago when there were no social networks or blogs, the only way for Google to tell whether a page was worth being on the first page was the number of backlinks pointing to that page, which led to thousands of spammy sites ranking where they were not supposed to rank…
… which is why there are several additional factors that are as important now:
2 Social signals
3 Content popularity
4 diversified backlinks (links from all over the place)
SEO is still SEO, but you can not shoot a million forum backlinks to a five word article and expect it to rank. What you want to do is use these SEO tips instead:
Trust Google about SEO before you trust other sites… and even me. They are the ones who set the rules, you should read their articles first and then compare what others say, because there is a lot of misinformation about SEO…
…such as directory links are useless, no they are not, they are and have always been a portion of the link profile.
– Get yourself an authority domain – or build one.
Authority is the name of the game, or popularity if you will.
When I put up this blog in 2011 even my syndicated content ranked higher than my own articles LOL, now I don’t even need links.
That’s the power of authority… the bigger your blog, the easier it would be to be found in search.
– Publish long articles
Although Google don’t really care about the length, long articles increase the time spent on the site, which is a ranking factor.
Optimize those articles, but not too much
– your keyword in the title and the permalink
– your keyword in the body (percentage don’t matter that much)
– keyword in the first paragraph
– maybe link out to a you-tube video
– picture “alt” tags
Focus on creating entertaining content rather than perfectly optimizing it.

You’d kill the game with these seo tips, but let me tell you how to build your authority, as it is becoming a major factor online… not that it wasn’t before.
I’ve searched a few articles for you:
you should really start looking at whatever you do (or try to) to make cash online as more of a business, rather than a quick way to make a buck.
Business takes discipline, patience and money.
If you really get what I just said and put in the work, you’d build you authority in no time, start ranking high in search and start making all kinds of money.
