You've probably created a brand new website, submitted it to a few search engines and hoped that people would mysteriously show up at your site and buy whatever it is you were selling. After a couple of weeks go by and only a few stray people show up at your website, you decide to try and "optimize" your website around your main keyword in hopes that you just might rank well in 1 of the millions of search engines. Another couple of weeks go by and still no luck.
At this point you probably give up and decide to either build another website around a different target market or just lose all hope and quit. Well, news flash, as you've probably figured out by now, this is not the way to go about doing things.
Let me give you a specific example of what your very first steps MUST be when creating any website.
In our example, let's create a weight loss related website. Our weight loss related website will primarily sell a weight loss eBook. Before we start creating and collecting content for the website we need to do a little keyword research. This is VERY important and should not be skipped. To do our keyword research we need to visit a few websites.
The first of which should be http://www.goodkeywords.com

They have a very good keyword tool and best of all, it's free! Once we've downloaded this software, we can enter the most generic keyword for our website into the software. In our example, our keyword would be "weight loss".
You'll notice that in the screenshot below, Good Keywords will return a list of related terms.
Website Optimization
SINo. Is a next numbering system and just shows you the rank of which keyword was searched the most times last month. The SINo. 1 is "weight loss" and was searched 1,413,194 times in the Overture search engine last month.
The Words column shows the specific keyword that was searched. If you enter "weight loss", the Good Keywords tool will bring back the 100 keywords containing the word "weight loss" that were searched for last month.
The "count" column will then show us how many times the specific keyword has been searched for the previous month within the Overture.com search engine. Generally, you can take that number times 3, in order to estimate the number of times that keyword has been searched within Google for the previous month.
Already, I will see many people making a BIG mistake, and I'll admit, I was one of these people when I first begin my online endeavours.

Do NOT start off by optimizing for the keyword "weight loss"
Why? You ask... If a keyword is searched that many times in Overture, then 100 times out of 100, the competition you will have to outrank will be extremely fierce. This is not something you should try to take on right away. For now, just take my word for it. I'll be teaching you later why starting with these highly competitive phrases is not smart.
Let's take a quick peek at Google so I can show you exactly how many websites are competing for this keyword. If we go to Google and enter "weight loss", you'll see there are almost 20 million websites competing for this keyword phrase!
Website Optimization
I don't know about you, but that's an awful lot of websites to be competing against, especially if you're just starting.
By the end of this course, you will be able to eventually target HUGE keywords such as "weight loss", but it's always best to start off on the keywords with less competition. Get some traffic with those keywords, and THEN you can focus on the larger keywords.
Ok, so back to finding which keywords we want to target.
If we scroll down, we can find some more specific keyword phrases like "weight loss story", "weight loss picture", and "safe weight loss".
Website Optimization
These could be possible keywords we should target to begin with. Once we have our list of 3 to 4 keywords, we need to go to Google and check out the competition to see exactly how hard it will be to optimize for the specified keyword.
We'll begin with the keyword "weight loss story" because people looking for weight loss stories are more than likely trying to find out how to lose weight and may buy your weight loss eBook.
You'll notice that the #1 ranked website for "weight loss story" at the time of writing this e-Book is: which is not a top level webpage, meaning it's not simply
http://www.runwalkjog.com/weight_loss_success_story.htm
http://www.runwalkjog.com
Website optimization
This is good news for us because, typically, if a website's subpage is ranking well in Google, we have an immediate advantage if we choose to target the same keyword with our homepage (i.e. www.domain.com). For now, just take my word on this, as I will go into more detail why it's usually easier to rank well for your homepage than any other webpage on your website.

You'll also notice that the website has a Google Page Rank of 4.
Website Optimization
Note: Here's a quick definition of Page Rank. Page Rank is Google's way of giving a specific value to how popular your website is. It is based on the number of "votes" other websites cast for your website. A "vote" is simply when another website places a link on their website that is pointing to your website. Generally, the more "votes" or links you have pointing to your website, the higher your Page Rank (PR) will be. Page Rank is 1 of the many factors that Google takes into account when ranking websites.
For example, on the page below this website is linking to www.motivation123.com. So, this website is casting a "vote" for www.motivation123.com, thus increasing the Page Rank of
www.motivation123.com.
Website Optimization

In order to see your own website's Google Page Rank, as well as others, you must have the Google Toolbar installed on your computer. You can get that for free here:
http://toolbar.google.com

Once you've installed the Google Toolbar, it will be located at the top of your web browser as shown below:
Website Optimization
Seeing that the #1 ranked website for this keyword only has a Page Rank of 4 is also good news for us, because a Page Rank of 4 should be easy to obtain. Remember, the ONLY way to increase our website's Page Rank is by getting other websites to link to us (getting other websites to "cast votes" for us). Later, I'll teach you the right way to get thousands of links pointing to your website in a matter of a few days.

View the Source Code
Every website on the internet is created using a programming language called "html". In order to see the "html code" that is used to create a webpage, we must click "view", then "source" within our web browser as shown below:
Website Optimization
This will open up a text file for us to have a look at and see if this website is actually optimizing their "Onpage Optimization factors".
See text file below:
Website Optimization
Side Note: There are 2 types of search engine optimization methods, onpage and offpage optimization. We'll cover offpage optimization in later chapters, but for now we're going to have a look at "Onpage Optimization".
As we view the source file from this website, we need to look for a few things.
Whether or not they are using <h1> header tags and are placing the keyword "weight loss story" within those tags. In this case, they are not... AND they aren't even using <h1> header tags at all! Another great thing for us!
Whether or not they are using their main keyword in the <title> tags of the website. In this case, they are, which is one of the main reasons they're currently ranked highly for "weight loss stories".

Whether or not they've bolded, underlined, or italicized the words "weight loss story" anywhere in the body of the webpage. In this case, yes... they have. They've actually bolded the keyword "weight loss stories" 4 different times throughout the webpage. At first glance, it looks as though this is another one of the major reasons they've managed to grab the top spot for this keyword. Bolding is something we can do right away, so now we know that we should also bold some of the keywords throughout our copy.
Website Optimization
Whether or not they are using <alt> image tags and placing the keyword "weight loss stories" within that tag. In this case, that answer is easy because they're not even using any images at all! This is definitely something we can do when optimizing our website. And another thing we can do to "one-up" this #1 ranked website. It is best to add images that are actually named after our main keyword. For example, we could insert an image and call it weight-loss-stories-graphic1.jpg and so on.

The final thing we want to note is whether or not they've placed the keyword once at the very beginning of the copy, and once at the very end of the copy. In this case

they have placed it near the beginning BUT have not placed it at the end. This is another thing we can do to better optimize our webpage.

We now know we can easily out optimize this
#1 ranked website!
... At least for all the onpage optimization factors that Google deems as important. The reasons we know we can out optimize them is because of the following things we've found out by:
The website is not using the keyword "weight loss stories" in an <h1> header tag.
The website did not use <alt> image tags containing the keyword "weight loss stories".
The website did not place the keyword "weight loss stories" at the very end of the page.
The website has a low Page Rank of 4, which can be beaten. We can easily achieve a Page Rank of 5. I'll show you the exact steps for this in the coming chapters.
The website is ranked with their subpage . (Weight_loss_success_story.htm By optimizing our index page for this keyword, we can one up them.
Remember, the main idea behind ranking well on Google is to analyze the top ranked websites to find out exactly what they're doing and then do those things, BUT just a little better to one up them and obtain a better ranking.
We'll continue to go through the same process for the other 2 keywords we've found. It is best to analyze the top 5 ranking websites for each keyword.

Note: If the top 5 websites for a specific keyword have a Google Page Rank of 6 or higher, it's probably not best to shoot for that keyword until we build some momentum and get some initial traffic from the easier ranking keywords with less competition, like I mentioned earlier.
Above I mentioned that keyword research was very important in building traffic. Some other very good resources for building keywords and finding niche phrases include the following:
Website Optimization
Website Optimization
Website Optimization
That wraps up chapter 1 and the first steps you need to follow in order to choose which keywords you're going to target. This is probably the most crucial step in optimizing any website. You MUST build a solid foundation by selecting the keywords with the right amount of competition or you're doomed for failure.
Ok, let's move on to stage 2!
How Changing One Single Onpage Optimization
Factor Can Boost Your Rankings By Over 350 Positions!
Ok, so now we've selected our main 3 keywords:
Weight loss story
Weight loss picture
Safe weight loss
Notice that all of the keywords contain the word "weight loss". This will make things easier for us when we begin to optimize our offpage ranking factors which you'll learn about later.

Let's Optimize Our Webpage ...
Step 1: The first thing we need to do is select a page Title for our website.
The page title should:
Include ONLY our main keywords. The least amount of words you can place in the title, the more weight Google will give to each of the keywords and the higher you will rank.
When creating your page title, it should not look like this:
Welcome to our website!
It should not even look like this, which does contain our main keywords, but contains an unnecessary number of words:
Weight loss story and weight loss picture and safe weight loss
Although that title isn't horrible and does contain all of your main keywords, you should do a couple of things to cut down on words used.
This would be a perfect title for your webpage:
Weight Loss Story | Safe Weight Loss Picture
Notice that I've:
Taken out all of the "ands"
Replaced one of the "ands" with a "|" character
Note: This character is located on the keyboard directly above the "enter key".
Combined the keywords "Safe Weight Loss" with "Weight Loss Picture”
Always Combine Your Keyword When Possible to cut down on the total number of words that are in your title!
Always Combine Your Keywords In The Page Title!
When Google looks at our title it will see all 3 of our keywords only. Combining keywords to cut down on the total number of keywords displayed in the title is a great way to boost the strength of each individual keyword, which will have an immediate impact on your ranking.
Add <h1> header tags
Next we'll need to add 1 <h1> header tag and place our most important keyword there.
The <h1> header tag should be as far towards the top left hand side of the page as possible.
When Google reads a webpage, it views the text from the top left hand side of the page, and then follows down to the bottom right hand side of the page. So, it's best to place your <h1> header tag on the top left hand or top/middle portion of your page.
You can think of an <h1> header tag as a title for whatever content you have on your page. For example, the <h1> header tag of this chapter would have been:
"How changing 1 onpage optimization factor can boost your rankings by over 350 positions!”
... And the html code used to create this title would look like this:
<h1>"How changing 1 onpage optimization factor can boost your rankings by over 350 positions!"</h1>
Of course, I would have changed my lesson title to contain my main keyword if I was actually trying to optimize this page for Google. Also, if possible, it's ideal if you can include ONLY your main keyword within the h1 header tags. <h1>Weight Loss Story</h1> would be a perfect header tag.
NOTE: If you're using an html editing program such as Dreamweaver, all you have to do is highlight the text you want to make your <h1> header tag, as shown below:

... And then click the dropdown button from the properties menu, and select "heading 1" as shown below. That will automatically enclose your text within <h1> header tags.
Website Optimization
Add <h2> header tags
Next, we'll need to create an <h2> header tag. This can be thought of as a sub heading for our webpage. You should place your 2nd most important keyword in the <h2> header tag. The <h2> tag should be placed somewhere towards the top half of your webpage.
A good <h2> header tag for our example would be:
<h2>safe weight loss<h2> (Usually it's best to place your primary keyword in your <h1> tags and your secondary keyword within the <h2> tags.
After we've done this, we need to actually create the content for our webpage. When writing the content, try to evenly sprinkle your main keywords throughout the copy.
Note: Don't overdo it though. If you simply repeat your keyword over and over like this: weight loss story about weight loss story that I have a weight loss story and weight loss story...
Google will immediately see your website as search engine spam and you will not rank well.
So, try to keep in mind that you're creating your website for the eyes of REAL people.
Try to mention each keyword in a natural way as you are writing, but be sure to include at least one of the keywords per 1-2 paragraphs, depending on how large your page is.
TIP: Make sure to mention your main keyword at the very top left and the very bottom right hand side of the webpage. A trick I like to use is to include this in the copyright information line at the bottom of the website. For our example, this would be a good example:
© 2005 copyright www.domain.com a weight loss story
Notice that it flows and doesn't really look too strange.
Bolding, italicizing and underlining ...
Once we've finished writing the copy, we should go through and bold, underline, or
Italicize some of the keywords only 1 time each, maximum. Only do 1 per keyword or it will hurt you more than it helps.
Properly include <alt> image tags ...
Next, add an alt image tag to the very top image of your webpage (This is usually your website's header graphic). Use the <alt> image tag using the text "weight loss story header".
The html code used to add an <alt> image tag would look like this:
<img src="YourGraphic.jpg" width="503" height="93" alt="weight loss story">
NOTE: If you're using Dreamweaver to create your webpage, simply highlight your graphic and then type "weight loss story" into the "alt" textbox within the properties menu. See below:
Website Optimization
Next, click on 2 more graphics throughout your webpage and enter your other 2 keywords, plus an extra word like "graphic" or "image"... For example, we would use "weight loss picture graphic" and "safe weight loss image". This ensures that Google won't view this as spam.
Force Google to Read Your Keywords First!
Now, remember I stated above that Google reads your webpage from top left, to bottom right? Well, in general they do, but because most websites contain a left hand column which contains all of their navigation links, as shown below:
Website Optimization
Google WILL View all of the text in the left hand column Before the Body of the webpage. This isn't good for us, because we want Google to actually read our content first!
How can you get around this? I've come up with a neat little trick that will ensure that Google reads the actual body of your webpage before the left hand column containing your navigational links.
Here is what you need to do:
Rather than creating a table that looks like this, which is essentially what the website above looks like...
Website Optimization
By doing this, Google will read the top left hand row/column first (This is labelled "empty column") BUT will see that it is empty, so it will then read the body text of your webpage and then read the 2nd left hand row/column which contains your navigational links! :-)
That's all there is to it!
In summary, I really want to point out the fact that, although good onpage optimization is something you'll really want to do, it is NOT how you make dramatic changes in your search engine ranking!
This is one of the biggest misconceptions in the search engine world. Many believe that by getting your keyword density just right, or by moving your keywords around on the page in just the right places, you'll really move up in the search engines.
NOTE: Keyword Density is the percentage of times a keyword appears on your page, compared to the total number of words on the page.
Example:
If there were 10 total words on a webpage and your keyword, "dog", was listed on the page 3 times, the keyword density for the word "dog" would be 30% (3/10=.30).
Anyway, before we move on, I want you to know that what I've taught you so far are only onpage optimization methods. These are things you should do to your WebPages, but will only move your website up a few places in the search engines. It is the offpage optimization factors that will get you high rankings. I will teach you exactly what offpage optimization factors are, AND how to make sure you optimize this perfectly for Google and the other major search engines!
The Secret to Getting Listed In Google
In Less than 24 Hours - Guaranteed
You may or may not have heard people claim they can get listed in Google in only 24 hours. It seems that nearly 100% of the people you run across in forums act like in order to get indexed by Google in 24 hours are some miracle feat that can only be accomplished by doing some "top secret" marketing tactic or advanced optimization strategy.
Well, the truth of the matter is...
Getting listed in Google in under a day is quite easy!
First, let's define what "getting indexed by Google" means...
Let's say that you create a brand new website. For our purposes, we'll call it
www.bradcallenscoolwebsite.com
If we go to Google and enter: www.bradcallenscoolwebsite.com into the search box, we'll see that no results are returned. See below:
Website Optimization
The reason no results appear is because our website is new and it's not "in Google's index" yet. If you're not in their index, your site can't be ranked by them because they don't know your site exists...
So, in order to rank in Google, you must first get into their index. Once your website is in there index and you do a search like we did above, you'll see the screen below:
Website Optimization

Notice your website title, description, and URL now appear... This website has been indexed by Google.
Ok, now that we've got that out of the way, let's talk about what NOT to do when trying to get indexed by Google. This drives me absolutely crazy when I see people doing this, and is actually what I did at one time as well. The following URL might look familiar to you:
http://www.google.com/addurl.html
Website Optimization
This is Google's actual website submission form. They state that you can use this form to submit your website to their index of websites and it can take up to 6 weeks for your website to be placed into their index. I don't know about you, but 4 weeks is a heck of a long time to just wait for your website to be placed in their index rotation, let alone get a top ranking!
Never Use The Google Submission Form!
You should NEVER use this form, or any other of the top search engine's submission forms for that matter. These search engines include Yahoo, MSN, AltaVista, and Alltheweb.
So, how do you get your website indexed within 24 hours?
Let's stick with our weight loss website for now, and I will take you through the steps you'll need to do to get indexed by Google in less than 24 hours, guaranteed.
? Go to Google and enter the broadest keyword you can think of that's related to your website. In our example, it will be "weight loss". Once you've done this, you'll see a list of Google results.
? Browse through each website and pay particular attention to the Google Page
Rank of the website.
Note: Remember, Google Page Rank is measured by the number of websites and the "importance" of those websites that link to your website. In general, the more websites that link to your website, the higher your Page Rank will be.
So, as you're looking at these top ranked websites for the search term "weight loss", you should try to find websites with a Page Rank of 5 or higher.
Once you've found several websites like this, you should check and see whether or not they have links pages. Usually you'll see links from their index page that says (resources, links, related sites, etc.) Now, you need to search their website for their contact information or information on getting a link from one of their high Page Rank WebPages.
Once you find their contact information you should send them an email asking if they will link to your website in return for you linking back to their website. If you do this correctly and professionally, they will respond and will place a link on their website to yours.
If you can manage to get 1 PR5 website to link to your website, you will be indexed by Google in less than 3 days. If you can get 1 PR6 website to link to you, then you will be in Google's index in less than 24 hours!
Sometimes persuading the higher page rank websites is pretty tough, especially if your website is brand new, but there's another option you can pursue and that is ...
Purchasing Text Links!
Purchasing links from high Page Rank websites. The easiest and fastest way to do this is to visit 1 of the many link purchasing websites. Here are a few of the better ones that I personally use on a regular basis. I've listed them in order of which I view as the best.

http:///www.text-link-ads.com
http://www.linkadage.com
http://www.textlinkbrokers.com

Many times you can purchase 1 PR7 link for a 1 month time period for, say, $150. After the month is up, there is no need to renew because you are already in Google's index! So, basically by paying a 1 time fee of $150 you can be indexed by Google within 24 hours, with no work on your part.
Something else that I will typically do with new websites, is I will always link my older, higher Page Rank websites to my new websites. If you already own 1 PR5 or 6 website, then place a link on the index page of that PR5 or 6 website and point it to your new website.
Leave the link there for 1-3 days and you'll quickly see your new website in Google's index!
Once you're in the index, you can remove the link from your higher Page Rank website.
It's as easy as that... So, you can see that getting indexed quickly by Google is VERY easy and doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out. One you're in Google's index, you can begin to do the things I'll be teaching you in the following chapters.

Thus far, you've learned:
? How to properly select keywords that aren't too competitive
? How to analyze the onpage optimization factors of the websites that aren't ranked in the top of the search engines for the keyword you selected.
? How to properly optimize your own website for onpage optimization factors
? And how to "get indexed by Google" in less that 24 hours”
On to stage 4
How to Skyrocket Your Website to the Top of Google
With Properly Planned Offpage Optimization!
I don't know about you, but I get extremely excited when I see my new keywords at the top of Google for the very first time. Making big changes in ranking is primarily done by what is called offpage optimization.
Earlier I mentioned there were two types of search engine optimization.
? Onpage Optimization
? Offpage Optimization
We've gone over onpage optimization, so let's move on to offpage optimization which is what really makes a HUGE difference in your site's ranking.
Properly planned offpage optimization will make the difference between your website ranking #900, and ranking #1 on Google!
So, what is offpage optimization anyway? Offpage optimization basically consists of all of the ranking factors that are NOT located on your webpage that the search engines look at when ranking a website.
These include:
? Which websites link to you
? The number of websites linking to you
? The Google PAGE RANK of the website linking to you
? The page title of the website linking to you
? The anchor text used in the link linking to you
? The number and type of links linking to the website that's linking to you.
? The number of outbound links on the website that is linking to you
? The total number of links on the website that is linking to you
? Whether or not the websites linking to you are deemed by Google as an authority
Website.
? The IP Address of the websites linking to you.
? Plus some other things that we'll get to later...
In order to optimize our original website for the keyword "weight loss stories", we need to analyze the offpage optimization techniques of the top 10 ranked websites for our keyword.
Copy the Top Ranked Websites to Get A #1 Position
The goal here will be to copy exactly what they're doing, and then do things slightly better. We want to give Google exactly what they want, by making our offpage optimization as close to the top ranked websites as possible, but as I said, slightly better, we'll edge them out and rank better.
Let's change gears and analyze the top ranked website for the keyword, "diet information" because this is a much more competitive keyword that "weight loss stories" and it will help illustrate the kind of offpage optimization that you'll need to rank high in the search engines.
As I mentioned above, we'll need to analyze a bunch of things about the #1 ranked website for the term "diet information" (www.diet-i.com).
Again, these things include:
? Which websites link to them
? The number of websites linking to them
? The Google PAGE RANK of the website linking to them
? The page title of the website linking to them
? The anchor text used in the link linking to them
? The number and type of links linking to the website that's linking to them
? The number of outbound links on the website that is linking to them
? The total number of links on the website that is linking to them
? Whether or not the websites linking to them are deemed by Google as an authority website
? The IP Address of the websites linking to them.
Which websites link to them
In order to do this, we'll go to Google and enter the following into the searchbox:
Link:www.diet-i.com
Website Optimization
This will bring back a list of websites that back a link pointing to www.diet-i.com. These are www.diet-i.com's link partners. You'll notice that Google says there are about 461 WebPages linking to www.diet-i.com.
Now that we have the list of websites, we'll need to analyze the quality of these websites in great detail.

The Number of Websites linking to them
Google shows that there are about 461 websites linking to them.

Website Optimization
The Google Page Rank of the websites linking to them.
If we click on one of the WebPages listed above: we'll see that the Page Rank of this page is 2.
(http://healthyweightlossplans.com/resources.php)
Website Optimization
The page title of the website linking to them
We'll not that the page title of this webpage is "Healthy Nutrition with Herbalife Products - Recommended Links".
Notice that the page title doesn't include www.diet-i.com's main keyword "diet information".
You'll want to try to get websites to link to you from pages that contain your main keyword in their page title.
The anchor text used in the link linking to them
Anchor text plays an extremely important roll in ranking well in Google.
Note: Anchor text is the actual text located within the link linking to www.diet-i.com.
For example, in this example: diet information is helpful.
“Diet information” the anchor text.
Ok, now let's look at the webpage above and find where the link to www.diet-i.com is located...
See below:
Website Optimization
You'll notice that the anchor text being used is "Diet Information"... Hmm... How about that?
The keyword they're ranked #1 on happens to be the exact anchor text that they're using for this link. Keep that in mind.
The number and type of links linking to the website that's linking to them
Next we need to find the number of WebPages linking to the page linking to www.diet-i.com.
Again, this page is: http://healthyweightlossplans.com/resources.php
So, we'll simply do the same thing we did with www.diet-i.com to get their list of link partners.
We'll go to Google and enter: link:www.healthyweightlossplans.com to see how many WebPages link to the main domain that our link is located on.
Website Optimization
Note that Google says there are about 18 WebPages linking to
www.healthyweightlossplans.com
The number of outbound links on the website that is linking to them
Ok, now we'll need to actually count the number of links on this page:
http://healthyweightlossplans.com/resources.php
By "outbound links", I mean the links that are pointing to other websites, other than pages
Within www.healthyweightlossplans.com
The total number of outbound links is: 26
The total number of links on the website that is linking to them
This is the total number of links... which includes the "outbound links" from above AND the inbound links (links pointing to pages within this website)
The total number of links on the page is: 59
Note: You'll want to try to get links from WebPages that have as few total links as possible on the page. I'll go into why in later chapters.
Whether or not the websites linking to them are deemed by Google as an authority website
This one can be a bit tricky. The idea behind this is that Google views websites that are ranked high in the search engines AND contain lots of content AND have high Page Rank's to be authority websites. For this, I like to use the following free tool.
http://www.andyhagans.com/tools/hubfinder/
Website Optimization
You can enter the top 10 domains for a specific keyword and the hub finder will find all common websites that link to each of the top 10 sites... Those websites are possible "hubs" or authority sites.
The IP Address of the WebPages linking to them.
To do this we'll need to use some type of program that will tell us the IP Address of this webpage linking to www.diet-i.com. My favourite tool is:
http://www.webrankinfo.com/english/tools/class-c-checker.php
This tool will allow you to enter a URL and it will let you know what the IP Address of that
URL is.
Note: It's important to get links from as many different IP Addresses as possible.
So, if we go to this website and enter www.healthyweightlossplans.com we'll see that the IP
Address of this site is: 66.152.98.202
Website Optimization
Ok, just to review what we've managed to gather thus far:
? There are 461 WebPages listed by Google that are linking to www.diet-i.com
? The Google Page Rank of 1 of those websites is 2
? The anchor text of the link pointing to www.diet-i.com is "Diet Information”
? The title of that webpage linking to www.diet-i.com is "Healthy Nutrition with
Herbalife Products - Recommended Links”

? The number of links shown by Google that are linking to that website
www.healthyweightlossplans.com is 18
? The number of outbound links on that webpage is 26
? The total number of links on that webpage is 59
? The IP Address of this website is 66.152.98.202
You'll want to open up an excel spreadsheet and keep track of ALL of this information as you go... Once you've finished with www.healthyweightlossplans.com, you'll want to move on to the next "link partner" on the list below, and do the exact same thing with this one.
Website Optimization
Yes, this can be a time consuming process, but in order to rank well, you must know EXACTLY how the top ranked websites are optimizing their offpage ranking factors, because that is what's getting them top rankings.
Here's the good news... When I personally analyze websites I don't do this all manually. I did when I first got started doing search engine optimization a long time ago, but since then I've gotten smart and realized there was an easier way to do this.
I use a software program called SEO Elite to do everything I just mentioned above. It's not a free tool, but its well worth the money for the time it can save you. Let me quickly show you how to use SEO Elite to automate everything I taught above. I do want to stress that it's NOT critical to have SEO Elite, but sure saves a lot of time.
Using SEO Elite to automate everything...
First we need to go to Google and enter the search term 'diet information'. You'll see that the number one ranked website is www.diet-i.com.

Next open up SEO Elite
Select radio button 1 - Analyze backlinks using a specific search engine.
? Enter www.diet-i.com into the domain to analyze textbox.
? Select the search engine, Google, by checking the checkbox.
? Click ok.
What SEO Elite will do is analyze ALL of the offpage ranking factors that I mentioned above.
Again, these things include:
? Which websites link to them
? The number of websites linking to them
? The Google of the website linking to them
? The page title of the website linking to them
? The anchor text used in the link linking to them
? The number and type of links linking to the website that's linking to them
? The number of outbound links on the website that is linking to them
? The total number of links on the website that is linking to them
? Whether or not the websites linking to them are deemed by Google as authority website.
? The IP Address of the webpage linking to them
SEO Elite Will show you everything they're doing to rank well and will make it extremely easy for you to duplicate on your own website!
Once SEO Elite is finished processing, we can click over to the report view tab as shown below.
The report view will show us an enormous amount of important information we'll need to know to outrank this website.
First let's look at the Anchor Text column.
Website Optimization
As I mentioned above, anchor text plays an extremely important roll in ranking well in Google and the other major search engines.
Take a look at this webpage that is linking to www.diet-i.com. Notice that the anchor text is "diet information"
Website Optimization
While looking at the report view within SEO Elite, you'll notice that www.diet-i.com has hundreds of backlinks that contain the words "diet information" within their anchor text. This is a BIG plus for them and something you'll want to duplicate!
Now, let's scroll to the left and look at the IP Address column.
Website Optimization
Google favours websites that have many links located on different IP Addresses.
If you think about it, it makes sense that Google gives priority to websites that have links on many IP Addresses rather than many links all on the same IP Address. This helps eliminate the possibility of people controlling the search engines.
If Google didn't look at IP Addresses, I could simply create 1 website with thousands of pages and link to another 1 of my websites from all of these pages. I would then have thousands of links pointing to my website, which would probably result in a #1 ranking...
Unfortunately, Google's smarter than that and doing that won't work, because ALL of your link partners would have the same IP Address, because they'd all be coming from your other website.
Anyway, back to the IP Addresses. As we scroll over, click the "IP Address" column heading to sort the column, we'll notice that www.diet-i.com also has many links from different IP Addresses. That's also a BIG plus for them.
Next, we'll look at the column titled Page Rank.
Website Optimization
If we click the Page Rank column heading, it will sort the column for us. You can immediately see that www.diet-i.com has 2 links from 2 Page Rank 7 websites.
This is very good, in that it will raise www.diet-i.com's Page Rank and ultimately their ranking.
Note: When you get a website with a high Page Rank to link to your website, it will increase your page rank more than if a lower page rank website were to link to you. Think of the high Page Rank website as a bucker of water. When they link to you, they poor a certain percentage of the water into your bucket, giving you more water (Page Rank). If a website with a lower Page Rank links to you, they have less water to begin with, so when they poor water into your bucket, it won't be nearly as much...
Next we'll take a look at the Analysis View tab.
Website Optimization

If we click on the column heading titled "Anchor Text", it will sort the column in descending order. You can see that the 2 words that are found the most often in www.diet-i.com's backlink anchor text are the words "diet" and "information".
98.5% of the overall backlinks pointing to www.diet-i.com contain the word "diet" and 85.6% of the backlinks contain the word "information". Also listed is the total number of links containing each of these words.
This is just another way of showing you why www.diet-i.com is outranking their competitors.
You will want to try and copy these percentages when you optimize your own website and get others websites to link to you.
Again, you can do all of this manually within an Excel spreadsheet if you wish to do so... It's just a matter of doing a little math.
? If your percentages are too high, Google may think you are "spamming" and may not give you as high of a rank as you deserve.
? If your percentages are too low, Google won't think your website is important enough to rank highly.
Lastly, we'll click the column heading titled "Title" to sort it in descending order. You can see that the word "diet" is still the top word, at 38% and "information" is still towards the top at 7.9%.
Website Optimization
The same thing goes for this column. You should try to match these numbers with your own website as closely as possible.
These are just a few of the things that we can quickly see about www.diet-i.com by using only a few of the features within SEO Elite
Now, I want to mention that it is not 100% necessary to use SEO Elite in order to analyze your competitor's to outrank them... but IT IS necessary to analyze your competitors. You can do everything manually that SEO Elite will do for you automatically. So, whether or not you have the software is not important. The important thing to note is that you MUST analyze those top ranked websites to see what they're doing to rank well.
To summarize, you've learned that the main offpage optimization factors are:
? Which websites link to you
? The number of websites linking to you
? The Google of the website linking to you
? The page title of the website linking to you
? The anchor text used in the link linking to you
? The number and type of links linking to the website that's linking to you.
? The number of outbound links on the website that is linking to you
? The total number of links on the website that is linking to you
? Whether or not the websites linking to you are deemed by Google as an authority website.
? The IP Address of the websites linking to you.
? Plus some other things that we'll get to later...
How to Skyrocket Past The #1 Ranked Website
On Google for the Term Diet Information ...
This is the single most important thing you need to do to rank well. So, listen closely and soak up EVERYTHING I'm about to teach you. It's very straightforward and may seem simple, but it works...
Now that we've analyzed the top ranked website in our niche, we need to do the necessary things to outrank them. As I taught you earlier, it's not the onpage optimization factors that will give you the biggest change in ranking.
Remember, onpage factors include:
? page title
? header tags
? alt tags
? meta tags
? bolding, italicizing, and underlining
? placing keyword in the correct position on the page
While onpage optimization is still something you should do, it's NOT what will get you high search engine rankings. It's the offpage optimization factors that will.
? Who links to you and how they do it.
Copy the linking strategy of www.diet-i.com
Now that we know who links to www.diet-i.com (The #1 ranked website) and how they're doing it, we can begin to copy what they're doing.
The goal here is to contact the websites that link to www.diet-i.com and copy the exact linking strategy they're using to get a #1 ranking.
So, how the heck are we going to get hundreds of links pointing to our website, let alone contact all the websites that link to www.diet-i.com and get them to link to us?

We could do 1 of 2 things...
1

? We could go to Google and enter: link: www.diet-i.com which would give us the list of websites that link to them, as I taught you in step 4.
? Once you have that list, you could click on each website. Search their website to find a contact email address.
? Open up your email program (Outlook or whatever email client you use)
? Write out a link request to them asking them if they would link to your website in return for you linking to their website.
Link Request template:
Here's an example link request email that typically works pretty well:

Hello my name is John Smith. I am seeking out possible link partners that our visitors would be interesting in visiting. I've found your website to be a very good fit for our visitors. I have already gone ahead and added your link to our website at: http://www.domain.com/TheLinksPageCreatedBySEOElite.htm
I am contacting you to see if it is ok to have done so. Also, I would like to ask if you mind linking back to us? If so, please use the linking details below and send me the location of our link on your website.
Here is our linking details: Title: (This is the keyword we want to target, which would be "diet information")
Description: Description here... URL: http://www.domain.com
We've got several PR6 and 7 websites, so we expect this site to become at least a PR5 within 1 month and will eventually become a 6 or 7 in 2-3 months.
I hope this can be a way for us to benefit our visitors with excellent content.
Hope to hear from you soon. John Smith www.domain.com
Title: This is the anchor text we would like to be used for our link. You should try to match whatever anchor text the top websites are using to rank well for your search term.
Description: This is just that, the description of your website. This could really be anything, but you should write something compelling to get people to click on your link.
URL: This is the URL of the web page you're trying to rank well for.
Then, do that all over again with the next website in the list. Yes, it takes time... but it's essential that you get as many websites to link to you as possible. Otherwise, you will never rank well, period.

We could fire up SEO Elite and it will do this for you automatically... This is what I do and it's a pretty painless process.
? Open up SEO Elite
? Select Radio button 2
? Select to find link partners by domain name.
? Enter www.diet-i.com into the textbox
? Select Google from the search engine list
? Click Ok
Website Optimization

View the Report View Tab
Website Optimization
The top frame lists:
? All of the websites that link to www.diet-i.com.
? The contact information for the website.
? The number of times you've emailed them.
(This is good to know, because emailing the same website multiple times can upset some webmasters.)
The bottom frame allows you to:
? Create as many email templates as you wish. This way, you only have to write the link request email once!
? Create custom links pages containing the websites you're going to send link request emails to.
Note: It's always best to add their link to your website before you ask them to link to yours. You'll get a much better response this way.SEO Elite Allows you to add everyone's link to your website with a single click of a button. It's all automated!
? Blast out emails to thousands of websites at once!
To email more than 1 website at a time, simply click the row in the top frame and it will add the website to your email list. You can literally add thousands of websites to your email list!
From then, all you'll need to do is click "ok" and BAM!
You've just contacted 1,000+ websites at once!
It's always best to make sure you add a link to each website on your website BEFORE you contact them. In the email to them, include the URL where you have added their link. You will get much better results this way.
What's the best way to create links pages?
You should place a maximum of 25 links to other websites on a single links page
You should create link page themes and place only related links together on the same webpage.
For example).You could create a Sports links page, and a Business links page. Only place the business websites on the Business links page and so on. This is an example of how you should set up your main links directory. You'll notice there are many different categories.
Website Optimization
Let's say we clicked on "General Business", it would then take you to another page that would take you to each of your individual Business related links pages. Each links page would have a maximum of 25 links. So, there are 25 links on Links Page 1, 25 links on Links Page 2, and 25 links on Links Page 3. If I need to add more links, I would create a Links Page 4 and so on...
See below:
Website Optimization
If I were to click on Links Page 1, it would take me to the first 25 business related links as shown below:

... And so on.
That is how to best structure your links pages. Now, back to the link request emails.
You have to be careful if you just send out mass emails to people. It's always best to
Personalize each email by simply stating what you liked "specifically" about their website. It may take a little more time, but will ensure that you don't get accused of spamming them.
By personalizing, you could simply say that you liked something about their website.
For example, I could say that I visited your website and really liked the article that was written about treadmills. Your website seems like it has many excellent articles and was wondering if you would like to... Etc.
Once you send out your link requests, all you have to do is sit back and wait for them to email you back, stating that they've added your link to their website. This method is VERY powerful.
You have total control over who links to you and how they do it!
Another way you could increase the number of links to your website is by writing articles related to your topic and then submit those to article directories. In the footer of each article you write, you should include a "blurb" about yourself and also a LINK back to you website, using your main keyword in the "anchor text" of course.
This is a great way to get 1-way links to your website. A 1-way link is when another website links to you without you linking back to them. Google and other search engines view 1-way links as being much more important than reciprocal links, so the more 1-way links you can get for your website, the better rankings you will have.
A great place to find a list of many article directories to submit your articles to is the following website:
http://www.pro-marketing-online.com/submit-articles.html
Website Optimization
As I said above, getting links to your website is absolutely critical to ranking well in the search engines. Whether you get links by sending link request emails, filling out "add a link" forms, or by writing articles and submitting them to directories, you must get links to your website. Without links, you will NOT have good search engine rankings.
By taking a few hours every week to get links, over the course of a few months, I can guarantee you'll rank VERY well for nearly any search term, period. It works, and it works extremely well.
Again, keep in mind the "principles" I'm teaching you. It doesn't matter how you go about getting the links, it's a matter of just getting links to begin with... So, whether you use software or other tools to make you’re analyzing easier, it doesn't matter.
QUICK SUMMARY
To summarize everything you've learned thus far, I'm going to break everything down into Offpage Optimization AND Onpage Optimization.
Offpage optimization is THE most important aspect of ranking well in ANY search engine, period. It's critical you know this. For offpage optimization...
? You must have links pointing to your website.
? These links must include your main keywords in the "anchor text".
? It's best to get links from the exact same websites that the top ranked websites
Have their links on.
? Try to get links from as many different IP Addresses as possible.
? It's best to have close to the same % of links containing the specific keyword you're trying to rank well for, as the top ranked websites.SEO Elite Shows you this. In order to get links to your website, you can trade links with other people buy sending link requests.
? You can also buy text links from the places I mentioned
? You can write articles and submit them to websites. Include a link to your website
In the footer of your article.
Onpage optimization is still important, but just not nearly as important as offpage optimization. You should do both.
? Include your keywords in your page title
? Use the '|' symbol to separate words
? Use only your main keywords. Don't use filler words. The '|' character will act as a filler
? Use <h1> and <h2> header tags
? Bold, italicize, and underline some keywords
? Place your main keyword at the beginning and end of your webpage
? Include your keyword in the copyright footer of your webpage
? Use <alt> image tags and include your keyword, plus the word "image" or "graphic" etc.
That's the basics of SEO that you MUST do to rank well.
