    Wow, You guys are the best' @Soundgine' .. Im literally going to start working on some blogs for my site now with the information you posted it greatly helped. If I'm trying to build up a keyword (don't know which one I'll choose as yet), should I create one blog and then build up that blog with blog posts? Or should I build up that blog with that keyword and then also build up other blogs with that similar keyword as well to link to the first blog? If that makes sense. I heard that's a good way to strengthen the quality of the links?

    It's more work but create a blog for each keyword, this will help you dominate for the keyword you want. Obviously you want links pointing from the free blogs to your own website but don't overdo it.

    I wouldn't link your blogs together, it will steal "link juice".

    10 blogs
    10 seperate keywords
    10 different emails

    At the bottom of the post, add an anchored keyword and link it to your website

    Anchored link

    Hey' @Soundgine' , Should I use anchor text throughout the posts linked to other posts in the blog? Would that be ok? Should there be a limit?

    Don't Spend Money On SEO. Instead, invest in autoresponders like aweber or mailchimp.. Learn how to use them. Then pay for th epremium service. Building your list is once of the best things you can do for your brand and business. This is a suggestion.

    '
    @Helix '; We had an employee come back from a Google seminar and to get to the point, Google website verification is becoming not just a tool, but a very strong SEO signal. If you stop and think about it, it makes perfect sense. Taking the time to verify your website tells Google you care about what you're doing. I suspected it was a signal, but not this powerful.

    It's a good thing we added an option to add custom meta-tags for Vue to allow verification codes. Here's how you do it in case you haven't done it yet.

    Access the area to paste in the Google code. Log into Control and

    Vue > General Settings > Custom Meta Tags

    You can spend your whole life chasing Google's algo but trust me, don't. It's similar to driving on the freeway and you see some fool going from lane to lane trying to get ahead only to end up behind you.

    Google has always looked for 2 things mainly.

    1. Original Unique Content. This means original text, doesn't have to be a lot of text.
    2. Bounce Rate. If you can get people to stay on your website longer than the next person, you will jump in rankings.

    You can go absolutely crazy watching SEO videos on Youtube so don't be that guy. Look, there are billions on webpages out there, it's a battle for 1st page no matter what unless your niche is "Pink Watermelons from Outer Space"

    Well, I'm not an SEO expert. But Search Engines are designed to bring up the most relevant stuff first. So, just make sure you develop a real community, grow popular, and stay relevant. I mean, sure there are little tricks here and there to give you little boosts. But for the most part, you just want to BE the type of site/business that people will want to find in a search. Just think about what people want and meet that demand. Obviously, any adjustments google makes to its algorithms is to ensure that consumers are getting results that they actually care about and find relevant. All the algorithms are doing is trying to quantify and calculate what things have the highest to lowest demand.

    In short, simply reverse engineer the issue. If you don't want to worry about having to learn and change everything every time a search engine has an update, simply BE THE DEMAND. I'd say that alone is 90% of the battle, and it doesn't matter what technical changes occur to an algorithm since they are always aiming to show the demand.

    This has to be ranked as one of the most helpful threads on this forum. I've started some micro blogs using many of these techniques with awesome success. One of the most powerful ways is to create external blogs pointing back to your website.

    The trick is not to make it spammy. Just be a professional about your craft, learn and then teach people for free without having people "sign up" for seminars and such.

    I went to a Google summit this year and learned there and scripts Google frowns upon. For example, if you have "lead pages" all over your website, you will be docked. If you have those "Social Locker" scripts...you will be docked, and I mean docked as in going from Page 1 to Page 3 in search engines.

    Of course there's a threshold, meaning that if you have 1 capture page to get a name and an address, that's totally acceptable, but multiple scripts will dock your website.

    What Google does is send bots that scan your entire website and report back and let's their system know if your website has these types of scripts.

    Scripts that Google doesn't like includes:

    - Empower Network
    - Leadpages
    - Social Locker

    There are literally thousands, but these are the only ones I know of. The best way to go about this and not worry about dropping ranks or stunt your opportunity to rank for keywords is keep your website to ONE capture "call to action" script.

    Ask yourself, is my website spammy? You'll know deep down that it is.

    Getting Effective Backlinks

    With all the hundreds of different techniques of gaining traffic there's still one that in my opinion trumps them all, and it's the industry related backlink. If you had a link from Apple Music, you would rank very high just because Apple is an authority website.

    Stop using automated tools that can get you delisted, bumped down in Google, or banned.

    The best links you can ever get is links from websites that are related to your field. So for you music producers out there, I would search Google for companies that sell VST's and offer some kind of link exchange with them.

    Make sure that the link they use for is the keyword you want to rank for example "buy beats online". Yes that is a generic link but you can always have it: "Yourcompany buy beats online"

    This will boost you in Google's SERP and get you more traffic. Now I mentioned VST websites, but there are lots more you can target.

    Dang, it feels good contributing to this thread :)
