The Proven Secrets to Boost Your SearchEngine Rankings With Little Time & Effort!

ABOUT ME

I am Dominic Tay and I'm not one of those SEO "gurus" who is going to sell youon some SEO theories.

In fact, you can call me an 'anti-guru' because I don't make a big bulk of mymoney teaching others SEO, but through doing SEO for my own sites.

And all thanks to these SEO strategies that I'm about to share to you, I nowhave multiple websites ranking in top 5 positions in Google, bringing meconsistent traffic and residual income each month.

One of them is ArticleSubmitAuto (an online article submitter) that's ranking inGoogle for these keywords:

Keyword: Article submitterPosition: #3 (Google US)

Page 2: Proven Secrets to Boost Your Search Engine Rankings

Page 2 of 17Copyright © 2012. SEOEightyTwenty.com. All Rights Reserved.

Keyword: Article submission toolsPosition: #4 (Google US)

Besides providing article submission services, I also provide link buildingservices for fellow marketers at LinkBuildingAutomation.com

And in the last 2 years or so, I'm really blessed because my services havehelped over 3,587 marketers around the world get better rankings in thesearch engines.

I also run an offline SEO consulting company, Leverage Leap LLP, serving offlinecompanies in Singapore including SK Investigation Services, DoctorWindow PteLtd, Value4U Pte Ltd.

WHY I CREATED THIS FORMULA GUIDE:

Almost every other week, I'll receive email from some marketers with a newSEO hype or Google 'loophole'. And I'll also receive at least 2 emails fromdifferent Indian SEO companies... all claiming to be 'SEO experts'... just becausethey know how to do some basic social bookmarking and article submission.

So, I'm really tired of all these "fly-by-night" CRAP and so-called "SEO experts"who are destroying the reputation of SEO marketers like myself.

That's why I've created this formula guide that cuts through the clutter to showyou ONLY the stuff that works.

But more than just that, I'm also going to show and prove to you that just byfollowing a few key SEO principles, you too can DRAMATICALLY improve yoursearch engine rankings.

SOME ASSUMPTIONS

In this formula guide, I'm going to assume that you already know KeywordResearch so you know how to identify those profitable keywords in your niche.

But if you need some guidance in keyword research, check out these software:

MicroNicheFinder

Market Samurai

I personally use these software for myself and on behalf of my SEO clients. Plus,they have tons of keyword research training materials (videos and manuals) toteach you how to do proper Keyword Research.

In the meantime, I would like to introduce to you the idea of…

THE "SEO 80/20" TECHNIQUE

I'm sure you've heard of the 80/20 rule – that 80% of our results come fromonly 20% of the work we do.

After making many changes to my sites and tracking the results, I amconvinced that this 80/20 rule applies in SEO too. Specifically, I realized thatjust by tweaking a few key elements, I'm able to dramatically affect my searchengine rankings.

So for the rest of this formula guide, I'll be sharing with you those exact keyelements.

WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

I'm not one of those people who are exposing some "Google loophole" orsomething. And that's why I'm able to get my websites (and my clients'websites) up there and just as importantly, STAY UP THERE.

So, no matter what updates Google throw out, the websites continue to rankhigh in the search engines. And if you're willing to follow the strategies that I'mgoing to outline in this guide, you too can enjoy long lasting SEO results anddominate your competition.

And that's not all…

In just a few moments, I'll be taking apart the SEO work I've done for mywebsite, ArticleSubmitAuto.com, to show you exactly how I got it to rank for itskeywords:

- Article submitter

- Article submission software

Are you ready? Let's begin…

There are 2 major ingredients to your SEO success:

1. On-Page Optimization

2. Off-Page Optimization (also known as Link Building)

On-Page Optimization

This section will show you exactly the little changes you can do to the elementson your website... that will reap you the most SEO results.

Are you ready? Let's start off with…

META TAGS

There are 3 major meta tags:

1. Title

2. Description

3. Keywords

META TITLE

This is the text you would see appearing on your browser title bar like this(next page please):

Page 5: Proven Secrets to Boost Your Search Engine Rankings

Page 5 of 17Copyright © 2012. SEOEightyTwenty.com. All Rights Reserved.

You can also see it appearing in the search engines like this:

How to SEO Optimize: Mention your main keyword as close to the beginningof the Title as possible, and at least once.

So if your keyword is “how to lose weight”, the ideal title would be: “How tolose weight – Secrets revealed!”

Additional Tip: Although Google reads the full length of your title, they willonly display up to 65 characters in the title, before replacing the rest with “…”.

So if you would also like to improve your conversions, make sure the first 65characters of your title sounds persuasive enough to make people want to visityour website.

META DESCRIPTION

This is the paragraph that you'll see in the search engines like this:

Page 6: Proven Secrets to Boost Your Search Engine Rankings

Page 6 of 17Copyright © 2012. SEOEightyTwenty.com. All Rights Reserved.

How to SEO Optimize: Mention your main keyword as close to the beginningof the description as possible, and at least twice.

So if your keyword is “how to lose weight”, the ideal title would be: “How tolose weight without pills or painful diets! Click here to learn more about howto lose weight…”

Additional Tips: You can dramatically improve your clickthrough rates from theGoogle results by doing these:

- Promise a benefit or a solution to the key frustration

- Add a “call to action”

META KEYWORDS

You can only see these keywords if you “View source” using your internetbrowser. It looks like this:

<meta name="keywords" content="main keyword, keyword 2, keyword 3">

Although there has been talk that Google (and the other search engines) nolonger pays any attention to the Meta Keywords, no one can confirm this. Plus,it doesn't hurt to include your keywords there. And that's why I'm stillincluding the meta keywords for all my personal websites and my clients'websites.

How to SEO Optimize: Simply include your keywords in the meta keywords,each separated by a comma.

HEADINGS

This includes all the h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 heading tags.

How to SEO Optimize: Include your keywords into each of the levels, at leastonce per level.

DOMAIN NAME/URL

How to SEO Optimize: Include your keyword inside your webpage URL.

Additional Tips: The ideal situation is to have your main keyword inside yourdomain URL. For example, have http://www.howtoloseweight.com for thekeyword of 'how to lose weight'.

Page 7: Proven Secrets to Boost Your Search Engine Rankings

Page 7 of 17Copyright © 2012. SEOEightyTwenty.com. All Rights Reserved.

However, if the domain is already taken up, you can consider purchasing adomain by adding an alphabet behind like“http://www.howtoloseweightq.com”.

Alternatively, simply rename the webpage filename to “how-to-lose-weight”,so the actual webpage URL will still carry the main keyword like this:

http://www.yourdomain.com/how-to-lose-weight/

KEYWORD DENSITY VS LSI KEYWORDS

Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on aweb page compared to the total number of words on the page.

Many years ago where search engines are still new and AltaVista was the king,"keyword stuffing" worked pretty well.

For example:

However Google changed the entire Search Engine Optimization game.

They know that SEO Marketers are manipulating the search engines resultswith keyword stuffing. So, they no longer rely on Keyword Density.

Instead, they now rely on relevant keywords (technically known as LatentSemantic Indexing keywords, or LSI keywords).

So…

How to SEO optimize your content: Mention relevant keywords in yourcontent.

Say, we're targeting 'Golf Clubs' as the main keyword, relevant keywordswould be:

Golf swings

Page 8: Proven Secrets to Boost Your Search Engine Rankings

Page 8 of 17Copyright © 2012. SEOEightyTwenty.com. All Rights Reserved.

Golf shoes

Golf caps

... and everything related to golf.

Don't talk about movies, pets or other stuffs that are unrelated.

If not, the search engines spider will be confused because they can't tell whatyour webpage is actually talking about.

IMAGE TAGS

Image tags are often overlooked by even the seasoned SEO marketers.

What they don't realize is that besides inserting keywords into their textcontent, they can actually insert their keywords into their images as well.

Because search engine spiders cannot read images like our eyes, they processthe texts that are available to them – the HTML codes.

For example, when we see this image:

Image courtesy of Sarah Boerger Smith

… We can immediately tell that this is an image of 2 boys playing having funplaying with water.

But what the search engine bots see is:

<img src= 'http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4137/4818775890_9763640b61.jpg' title='Boys having a blast at the water park'alt=' Boys having a blast at the water park'>

Page 9: Proven Secrets to Boost Your Search Engine Rankings

Page 9 of 17Copyright © 2012. SEOEightyTwenty.com. All Rights Reserved.

And because the search engine bots cannot 'see' images like our human eyes,they get the contents of the images from the:

Filename

Title tag

Alt tag

In other words, the search engine bots pays close attention to the textcontents of the images.

How to SEO Optimize: Include your main keyword in the filename of yourimages and mention the keyword in the “Title” tag plus the “Alt” tag as well.

So if you're going for the keywords, “how to lose weight”, do this:

<img src='http://www.yourdomain.com/images/how-to-lose-weight.jpg' title= 'how to lose weight' alt='how to lose weight'>

Alright, that's all for the on-page optimization. Let's move on to…

Off-Page Optimization

Off-Page Optimization or link building, is all about getting high quality incominglinks (or backlinks) to your webpage.

Generally, the more incoming links your website have, the higher it will rank inthe search engines.

However, that's not entirely true.

But the problem is that most SEO Marketers just take in the literal terms andthey only focus on the number of the backlinks. As a result, they end upwasting huge amounts of their time and money.

Why? Because not all incoming links have the same level of SEO impact.

You see, Google favors some websites over the others, and they measure thisthrough their Google Pagerank – the higher their Pagerank, the moreimportant they are in Google's eyes.

And if you have these websites pointing to yours, can you make a guess whatGoogle would now think of your website? That's right. Google will think that

Page 10: Proven Secrets to Boost Your Search Engine Rankings

Page 10 of 17Copyright © 2012. SEOEightyTwenty.com. All Rights Reserved.

your website is just as important too. So, one of the keys to ranking high in thesearch engines is to get backlinks from these authority websites. And that'show I'm able to get my websites and help clients outrank their competitors.

THE DIFFERENT SOURCES OF INCOMING LINKS

There are many sources for incoming links:

ARTICLE DIRECTORIES

How it works: These article directories thrive on user submitted content. Andthey encourage user submission by allowing us to build a backlink back to ourwebsite by mentioning our URL in the "Author box" of the article like this:

What To Do:

1. Create unique articles around your keyword with the On-PageOptimization tips given in the previous section

2. Submit it to the top article directories – those that already have highamounts of daily visitors and high SEO impact. This includes:

GoArticles.com

Ezinearticles.com

IdeaMarketers.com

ArticleBiz.com

ArticlesBase.com

Amazines.com

ArtiPot.com

Submitting to article directories is one of the most effective methods to gethigh quality backlinks. However, they can get really time consuming andenergy zapping if you're doing all the manual legwork.

How it works: Most forums profiles are accessible by the search engines, andthey allow you to add your website to the "Homepage" field there. The betternews is, some of them even allow you to add hyperlinks to your websites usingyour main keywords, in their "Signature" box like this:

What To Do:

1. Search for forums on the internet. Go to Google.com and type in:

<niche> forums

… for example, "Dog training forums"

2. For each of the forums in the search results, check if they allowmembers to place your link in the "Signature" and in the "Homepage"field.

The easiest way is to click through a few of their forum threads and seeif members have the "Signature" box like the one you see in the abovescreenshot.

3. If yes, create a user account in these forums and add your website URLto the signature.

While this process can be overwhelmingly time consuming, forum backlinkingis one of the most effective ways to create incoming links to your websites.And if you'd like someone reliable to get your forum backlinking handled, visitLinkBuildingAutomation and read the reviews there.
