Would being on the top of google help your business

Friday, January 25, 2008


I have been thinking about creating an SEO Contest, and would like to get feedback from SEO professionals on how a contest should be done. I was thinking of a contest where the keyword is unique, and also not in the current google, yahoo, msn index. I would also say that the destination seo optimized page is not a blog... it should be an HTML 4.0 + type page with CSS and layers if you like.

I think this would create a cool contest that would really show the skills of the SEO Professional.

Would love your thoughts :)

Black Hat SEO includes, linkspamming, misrepresenting site content, cheating on reciprocal links, spamdexing, linkfarming, linkbaiting, empire building, cloaking, keyword stuffing, redirects, buying links, and buying traffic and many more techniques.

Some of the Black Hat SEO techniques I have been using succesfully for many years, others have limited success or are easily detectable. I will go through all these techniques one by one and detail the positives and negatives of each technique.

I like to use what is referred to as GRAY HAT SEO. The idea of gray hat seo is to use a variety of techniques to get good search engine results, but always deliver to the person doing a search, VALID results! In other words, if someone does a search for "seo web hosting" the pages that I put on the first and second page of Google and other search engines will be about SEO WEB HOSTING! No deception! Only the results a person is looking for :)
