Achieve Top Google Position Without Any Backlinks

Hi every one,

I wanted to write on this topic of "how to get top google position without any backlinks".

Actually page ranking is a different thing. And achieving top position for google search results is some thing different.

High Page Ranking?
If you want to get a high page rank. then you just need to get plenty of quality back links.

A quality back link must have 3 important characteristics.
1) It should be from a high page ranked web page. Say PR4+
2) The backlinks should come from a web page that is related to the subject of your web page. For example if your site is about SEO articles then the back link should come from the same type of site, say SEO tools web page etc.
3) The anchor text of the back link should be related to keywords of your web page.

If you are getting 30 Pr2 links then you will be well ranked within few weeks.

High Google Search Position
If your page rank is good say PR4, does it means that your site will be shown in the top position of google search for your keywords?

Absolutely not!!!

This is just one factor that is considered by the google.

For example search this term on google:
"Improve google Rank by driving Traffic"

See what you see in top 1st position?

The top 2 results are

This site has PR0 ;-)

The third and 4th result sits have PR2 :-)

The 5th site has no page rank at all :-)

So you see that a site with PR0 was at the top for certain keywords, while sites with PR2 were at lower positions.

Yes you go it. Highest page rank does not mean that you will be at top most position for your keywords.

My Experience
In the last 2 months i did SEO of 2 sites and made them at Google position #1 for some hot keywords(medium level keywords).

I didnot add any backlinks. I just worked for Onsite optimization.

Here is How it Works
When your page is indexed by the google. It analyse your website's contents, navigation structure, outbound links, keywords density etc.

After analysing a page, Google tries to identify what are you presenting on your webpage.

Then Google assigns the keywords (or combination of keywords) for which your site is giving some information. Remember that Google dont consider what have you written in KEYWORDS tag for assigning keywords to your website. Keywords assigned to your website from Google may be entirely different from the keywords, that you placed in your KEYWORDS meta tag.

After assigning keywords. Google assigns a position for your keywords. This is the real game for which every body is worried :-)

Main Onsite Factors For Getting Top Position For your Google Assigned Keywords

a) Remember the important places of your web page.
These are TITLE, KEYWORDS, ALT, H!..H6, BOLD, PARAGRAPH, etc. In these places you must include the keyword phrases for which you want to highly ranked.

b)First paragraph in your body is very important for google. Here you should give the comprehensive and detailed information for your topic. Disperse your keywords here in a good ratio, like 8%.

c)The alt tags of all images must be used. Use the keywords here in natural style.

d) You can bold the keywords in all your body content. This tell google that these words are important words and google will take these words to consider as keywords with good rank.

e) The keywords should be dispersed in your content in natural style. Natural ratio of keywords is like 5-10%. More than this may be called spamming by google.

f) The webpage navigation must be simple and easy for users and machines (google). From any page of your website, you must be able to access any other page of your website with 3 clicks at the maximum.

g) Your content should have outbound links where needed.

h) You must link your internal, other pages of your website, in your page's content. This will ensure faster indexing of your website too.

i) YOu must create a page called sitemap.html,listing the names with links of all pages of you website. This factor will give you some more points by Google.

j) The name of the page must be descriptive and should contain your keywords. For example "what-is-seo.html". Here "seo" is your keyword.

k) Don't use the much images. Fewer images are good for well placing in search engines. Also full flash sites are poorely ranked due to less information retrieval by google. Mostly text is a good idea. Google can parse text well.

These are the main tips. I shall post some more tips later.

For now, i want the ideas of you people about this new topic.

Its good article though. But if you noticed in general search mostly websites are those with high pr.

So it means we not only need good optimization but we also need pr2.

Still content is one of the reason for having a good rank on SERP.

Nice article, thanks for sharing. I also have a blog post which absolutely has no backlink, but since it's a detailed step by step guide, people seem to refer to it. Now it has PR1 and has top rankings in niche keywords.

Thanks for the great points. I believe with most points except the one about links. You know, for some really competitive keyterms, some links are needed and merely having onpage optimization might not be the only way to rank.

In conclusion:

A simple formula is:

High Page Rank = How other websites rank your website

High Search Rank = How Search Engines Rank your website for some keywords.
