7 Secrets To Top Search Engine Rankings (Yes, Even #1 Positions!)

There's hope for the 'little guys' in the search engine ranking game, even if they  can't tell the difference between the title  and keyword meta tag!  


You can achieve high rankings for important keywords simply by applying certain rules  that stand the test of time and even  technology...and the number one rule is  really to......Help the search engines provide relevant search results!

How do you do this? I'll reveal the 'secrets' soon.



While I'm far from being an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) expert and am just  sharing experiences here, I've achieved  some phenomenal results by following these  basic rules and without resorting to  'tricks'. Importantly, these are rankings  that last.
  
I'm not suggesting you shouldn't learn about SEO or use genuine software that  helps, in fact you should.  
To learn about SEO, some sites you can check out:

http://www.selfpromotion.com : shows you how to construct your webpages and submit  them to hundreds of search engines and  directories absolutely FREE.

Here then are 7 powerful secrets you can use to model your website after to explode  your high search engine rankings!

Step 1: Determine Highly Searched Keywords
Determine highly searched and targeted keywords/keyword phrases related to your  site and put them into a list. Here're the  tool to use:  
http://www.goodkeywords.com : excellent software to find targeted keywords in  Overture and various other engines.

Step 2: Register Keyword Rich Domain Names
While there've been contrasting arguments about whether having keywords in your domain helps, I strongly feel it does. The same goes for dashes between words in the  domain.  
Use these to source for domain name ideas:

You can also register your domains for peanuts per year here:

Step 3: Use Your Targeted Keywords In Your Copy




Use the list of keywords in step 1 within your website copy, especially in the title,  headline and first paragraph. The important  thing is to make them flow smoothly within  the context of the copy so prospects will not find it weird.  

Step 4: Insert Keyword Rich Relevant Content
Next, build up your site's content with relevant topics containing your keywords.  Don't worry, here are some ways to get  instant content:
- Posting suitable articles that contain your keywords. These can either be your own or from article directories like
http://www.ezinearticle.com ,
http://www.goarticles.com or
http://webpronews.com
- Posting newsletter issues in an archive online if you write any
- Do reviews and commentaries on related products and services in your market as  content

Step 5: Aggressively Acquire Targeted Back Links
This is the second most important (some say it's the first) factor to note after  targeted and relevant content.  
Get as many good quality incoming links from other sites as you can, believe me,  this will really make a huge difference to  your rankings. These links should come from sites in your market and preferably those  with high PageRanks of 5 and above.  
Use http://www.webmasterbrain.com/prog/ to search for sites with top rankings in  Google for yourspecified keyword/keyword  phrases. It also reveals their individual  PageRanks next to their listings.  
An excellent resource to check PageRank can also be found at http://rankwhere.com.  
Alternatively, you can download Alexa toolbar from http://ww.alexa.com as it also  shows Alexa traffic ranking for any site.  This is very useful for seeking high  traffic link partners.

Step 6: Hand Submit Your Site To The Top
Directories and Search Engines
There's no point in using those 'submit to millions' services as only a few search  engines really matter.  
Using those services may actually cause your site to be penalized by these major  engines.  
In fact if you've done enough important reciprocal linkings, you don't even need to  submit your sites as spiders which crawl  your link partner sites (already indexed)  will pick up your link easily.  

However, if you must submit, do it by hand at these directories and search engines  here:  
Ask Jeeves
LookSmart/Zeal
Open Directory
Google
Yahoo
All The Web
Inktomi

Step 7: Tune Your Site For Maximum Optimization  
The final step would be to constantly monitor and analyze your website traffic  against rankings. This is so you can review  and tweak for further improvement in your  rankings.  
I hope this article will prove highly useful to you. Do not be scare away by SEO,  it's simple once you follow the above  system. While these steps are not  everything you can do, it'll be enough to  get your site ranked very well for the  targeted keywords you chose.  
Again, remember the number one rule of giving relevant content and establishing  good back links. Help the search engines  provide relevant results for their  customers and your rankings will  automatically skyrocket to the top!
