SEO is something which you learn with experience and it’s more of trial and error method. Many things which I have learned with time and one of them is long tail keywords work better and more over backlinks created via commenting helps you a lot.
Here I have played with some new project and wanted to see if I can create page rank for that blog without working much. As a test project I started with creating backlinks just by commenting and nothing else.
The domain which I’m talking about is Wpfreesetup.com which is going to be my next project for some service.
- Domain bought on: 19/02/2010
- Domain Page rank as of Sep 27th 2010: 3
- Domain name: Wpfreesetup.com
- Website Platform: WordPress
- Theme: Thesis WordPress Theme
- No. of Posts- 0
So this domain was bought almost 7 months back and at the time of writing it has a page rank of 3 with total no. of posts= 0. I know it sounds really amazing but this Page rank 3 is a result of a SEO test.
The idea is by blog commenting. Blog commenting is one of the best way to drive traffic and build backlinks for your domain. In this case I commented on many High PR blogs and especially one using top commentator or recent commentator WordPress plugin. This resulted to drive backlinks from some High PR sites and within a month (last PR update), that new domain Page rank increased to 3 from 0.
Page Rank and Traffic:
This is most common myth that page rank helps you to drive traffic and this is not true. Imagine the above mentioned blog have PR 3 and you must be expecting at least 100-1000 visits a day. But the fact is at this moment this new domain doesn’t have even 50 traffic/month.
Other Steps which I followed:
- Used SEO optimized WordPress theme: Thesis Theme
- Created Sitemap for Blog
- Submitted Sitemap to Google, Bing, Yahoo
- Added Meta tags, meta keywords
- Onsite SEO optimization of WordPress
Commenting helps you a lot in gaining Page rank and building backlinks. If you build high quality backlinks, chances are high to get a page rank within next PR update.
