Please share your best SEO techniques

Ever since Panda/Penguin updates came out, many of the old ways of doing SEO have been abolished or at least made less effective.

But one of the things that always helps with SEO is to create good quality content. For me, that would be to write a great volume of words on each blog post, not just a paragraph. That helps prevent the impression of keyword stuffing.

Also, backlink from credible sources such as Google + and do follow sites.

Don't target too many keywords per page/post.

And, don't backlink to your site using only the same anchor tags every time.

Please share some Panda/Penguin proof techniques that will increase search engine rankings.

1. Commit yourself to the process. SEO isn’t a one-time event. Search engine algorithms change regularly, so the tactics that worked last year may not work this year. SEO requires a long-term outlook and commitment.

2. Be patient. SEO isn’t about instant gratification. Results often take months to see, and this is especially true the smaller you are, and the newer you are to doing business online.

3. Ask a lot of questions when hiring an SEO company. It’s your job to know what kind of tactics the company uses. Ask for specifics. Ask if there are any risks involved. Then get online yourself and do your own research—about the company, about the tactics they discussed, and so forth.

4. Become a student of SEO. If you’re taking the do-it-yourself route, you’ll have to become a student of SEO and learn as much as you can. Luckily for you, there are plenty of great web resources (like Search Engine Land) and several terrific books you can read. (Yes, actual printed books!) See our What Is SEO page for a variety of articles, books and resources.

5. Have web analytics in place at the start. You should have clearly defined goals for your SEO efforts, and you’ll need web analytics software in place so you can track what’s working and what’s not.


---------- I agree, My suggestion..if you found a SEO EXPERT telling you to pay them a "ONE TIME FEE" for SEO work and that it will be good forever...is a lie!! The real place tell you its a monthly fee for it b/c whats on your front page this month may not work for you next month.

On every new website I first focus on content, at least 10 articles and onpage SEO optimized 100%, than I sign it to GWT and start building links. I make submissions to web directories, I write guest posts on other websites with backlinks to my website, social bookmarks, blog comment backlinks... At start I focus on high PR dofollow links to get my site indexed quickly, I also submit sitemap to GWT. Of course there have to be some nofollow backlinks, but at the start, they are created automatically by all the spiders and sites which crawl for content and stuff. I also make video pyramids for all my new websites, which get me traffic from tube sites and Google as well.
I analyse stats and rankings in SERP every day, after 2 month period I start to make more backlinks and focus on keyword diversity.

Can you explain more about how you construct a video pyramid. Is that like a link wheel?

Video submission as Tier 1 and bulk links as Tier 2 and 3 (bookmarks, comments, Wikis).

I've always suggested do follow sites too, as they get crawled. But some people insist that no follow links are counted too, so I get those as well.

Content is the king in terms of SEO. According to Google Penguin update, those sites are penalized which have more than 60% of backlinks with same anchor text. So just need to avoid over optimization.


It's smart to vary up the backlinks/anchor text from one forum or blog to the next. That way Google should have no complaints. Also, not necessary to have the signature link on every post on a forum. So long as you have one backlink on 3000 forums (with varying anchor text in signature line), that should be more valuable than 3000 links coming from one forum where the anchor link is all the same.

The best SEO techniques are dofollow list.

What kind of SEO technique is that? First time I read a bout this technique called "dofollow list".

Good content is the most important aspect of search engine optimization.

I do agree. Getting organic traffic via this articles or content is a goof way to optimize your site.
Without this, what will your visitors read when they come from search engines?

Could that make you popular if you don't have well written content? A well written content is definitely a must. Without it, what will your visitors from those methods see on your site?

Even if it's a one time fee, as long as you continue the work that that guy have done on your site, the effect will stay longer.

Ironically, i've seen some sites without any content get onto first page of google for keywords. That was just before the Penguin update. Not sure how those sites are doing now though. Though I'm sure doing quiet well as content was added later.

No content? So how can they got up in SERPs? Pure link building?
So yeah, you got into first page. But when your visitors click on your site, they'll see nothing and press BACK. More bounce rate for you.

One backlink only? So what about the PageRank? Would the PR of the page matters?

My number one SEO technique is having keywords. I use keywords everywhere on the domain, website name and description, content title, content description, content body. I even use keyword on the image title and image description that I use with my content. I always make sure that I have at least 5 percent primary keywords on my content.
My second technique is I always have long tail search term as my title. When your title exactly matches with the search querry, it is very likely that search engines will list your contents high.
My number one off page SEO technique is forum posting. I use my website links and content links as my forum signature.

I am currently learning SEO methods and my opinion with the SEO method is the content. It is unique which means it is not copied from another site whether in part of in full and well written with good grammar. It should also be directly relevant to niche, of course. When there is no new content on the site it can be considered dormant so the search engine will ignore it for consideration to the search list.
