You know how a matrix works, right? I mean, everything is interconnected. One part of the matrix goes out… the matrix doesn’t work right.
Well, SEO is a bit like that. On page factors are important, like the title and description META tags, and your keyword density on the page. Blocking the links you don’t want followed and such, and making sure your page is more content than code.
But you have lots of off page factors to consider, too. You can have a crappy site ranked, if you write articles about its niche. Articles carry a lot of weight, especially if you put them on your site because Google loves content. But you can also distribute articles and point them back to your site. You may get Google credit for it, and then again, maybe not. Putting them on other sites in your niche and pointing them back is very powerful, though.
And then, there’s blogging. Well.. it’s something I love to do and something you should watch out for. I have a really cool thing up my sleeve. You’ll have to wait and see.
And there’s linking back from directories.
And there’s lots of other stuff that go into the SEO matrix. It all works together to make your site rank. I’ve used all of them to get Tellman’s sites to the top for “list building” in all three major search engines. I’ve cut my teeth and now, we’re going for bigger game words. It’s really incredible how this system works.
For the higher competition, you just have to work a bit harder. Couldn’t have done it without StomperNet, I can assure you. What an incredible place! I’ve never seen such an awesome information portal, like ever, and I’ve been online 11 years and in business for the past 4. I can’t begin to explain how much I’ve learned.
But it keeps growing, and my matrix of knowledge and the things we do keeps growing. I’m so lovin’ it!
Don’t think that just because you wrote one article that it will do much for your ranking in the SERPs (search engine resutls pages). You need to write at least 2-3 articles a week for it to really drive your system. You need to blog at least 2-3 times a week, if not every day. And you have to post to directories. All the cogs in your machine have to keep running.
SEO isn’t just finding keywords and writing tags. It’s HUGE.
And I love every minute of it.
