Submission + - How to get to first page of Google and increase organic traffic (

andycussen writes: So about 6 months ago I began researching the dark arts of SEO. I had always heard so called SEO specialists saying "O I can get you no 1 on google" although they could never actually back that up. So I decided to take things into my own hands. After I bit of research I found a few crucial tools that I would need to begin my journey through the SEO jungle. So my first weapon of choice was this website is crucial to perofm a number of tasks you need to help you with SEO, like Competitor Analysis, Backlink Mining, Keyword Research and tracking. After studying some more I found that the best plan of action was for me to create multiple backlinks for our websites but I have read that it is bad practice to just go ahead and create 200 backlinks its best to create 12-20 each month and slowly gain more and more backlinks. Accoring to my research backlinks account for almost 75% of your rank. So no mater how awesome your website is if you don't have more backlinks than your competitor then they will rank above you. Google takes into account a number of factors for you to rank for specific keywords. Make sure the keywords you are targeting have a decent search volume each month. I was targeting "labour hire sydney" as this was searched over 1,400 times a month which is a decent amount of traffic. So I firstly done an SEO analysis on my website, checking Site Titles, Meta Title, Meta Description, H1, H2 and H3 tags and found that they were not optimised at all so I went about optimising them to focus on our main keyword. I included "labour hire" and "sydney" in each of the Titles, Tags and Descriptions. With the homepage now SEO optimised I then done a performace test on our site and found it was taking almost 5 seconds to load. This was not good as Google has started to slam websites that load to slow so I used Google Page Speed Test to test and optimise our wbesite. I managed to get it down to 1.4seconds by minifying the JS, HTML and CSS3. I also compressed all the images on the homepage to as low as I could without disturbing the quality.

Once I had optimised the homepage of the website I went about creating backlinks for the site. I used Ahref's to check my competitors sites and find where they got their backlinks and I managed to find quite a few Australian directories that had "do follow" backlinks to their websites. So i listed them all and began submitting our website to all these directories. Now after 2 months we are now first paging for "labour hire sydney" and I have maged to create over 25 backlinks for the website. I am going to create 10-15 backlinks each month until I get us to No1 on Google.

I am quite pleased with my results so far and I now realise the time and effort that SEO takes. I hope this can help some of you to understand the key to SEO and get you to first page for your keywords.

Yes, that's really exactly it. The "suits" have no idea how the day to day business is run. My company recently offered early retirement for 55 and older - and lost a huge amount of talent that left the company reeling for a couple of years.

There is a certain contempt that a lot of people have for people who are not doing what they do. Many suits are convinced that the only difficult work in the world is performed by an MBA. Many accountants are hopelessly caught up in the Excel spreadsheets, and have absolutely no idea of human knowledge and psychology.

So every job in the company is legal theft according to the suits, who are upset that such stupid people are even allowed to draw a paycheck, bolstered by the accountants insistance that those stupid and overly expensive older employees can be replaced by fresh young college graduates who know so much more.

Then the confirmation bias sets in as the inexperienced noobs flounder around.

I'll likely have to jump to Comcast

I visited some relatives who have Comcast Xfinity a while back. It wasn't working right, which meant we had to keep resetting the cable box. That thing takes longer to boot up than my desktop PC. It took *minutes* after we turned it on to be able to watch TV. And then, the interface lag between pushing a button on the remote and seeing the results on the screen is so long, it made me think I hadn't successfully pushed the button. I realize there's some delay there for decoding the digital stream, but I still can't help but recall when I was younger, changing channels was pretty much instantaneous. It was a much better user experience.

Is there some reason you think Facebook should be immune from what the New York Times has to do?

Advertising on Facebook is paying to participate in private conversations of others. Advertising in traditional media (even when it is distributed online) is injecting your messages into broadcast message stream which has the air of being vetted and authoritative. Advertising in social media is pretty much like paying the host to be invited to a private party. Advertising in traditional media is like announcing that you are the benefactor of a theater before a theatrical performance. These are entirely different and should not be treated equally.

Unity is the main reason I have stuck with Ubuntu this long. With that gone it may be time to find a new distro. I have lost confidence in Canonical.

Already I've started to switch my Docker containers from Ubuntu to Alpine Linux. That's made me realize how bloated and complicated Ubuntu often is. It usually takes like half the time to do an uncached build of an Alpine based insane versus an equivalent Ubuntu based image.

Ideally I'd like to find something that has both a minimalist server flavor available, as well as a full desktop flavor. For now that's still very convenient. In a few years I expect it won't matter nearly so much.

Extending that to Facebook, Twitter, etc. is hardly overreach.

Why? Social media acts as social platforms (ie, town squares) much more so than as broadcast "media" platforms such as TV and radio. Why should social media be treated with the same gloves as TV and radio rather than the same gloves as town squares?
