I mean really poor sites. No apparent layout, just words and images tossed onto a page. Content also seemed random and the design would make your eyes hurt.
So I set out to investigate how these sites got number one ranking
Thankfully I have SEO elite so I did a search for the sites linking back to one of the pages
The beauty of SEO elite is it tells you the pages linking back and also tells you what the page rank of those pages are.
And low and behold, the site in question has about 20 backlinks that were obviously by the owner of the page. oh and those linking sites also had poor content as well
Got me thinking though. There are loads of webmasters whose websites have really good content on the internet. How is it that this poorly written site gets number one position in Google.
It's about building link farms. A link farm is a series of websites that all interlink with each other and are set up for the purpose of providing an SEO boost for certain pages
Now if you are thinking of building your self a link farm, I'll tell you this for free.... It's not worth the effort
Because of the increased competition on the internet, webmasters are having to provide better and better content to keep visitors. This means that todays average internet user has come to expect a certain standard of content and design. What drives conversions is the quality of the content on your pages
So yes the webpage I explored is number one for his or her chosen adsense related keyword term. But I wonder what the conversions are.
Also link farms can get you banned, or at least thats what I read somewhere and am certainly not about to put it to the test
