My widget site has an index PR 3, as I enter www.widget.com into Google search it shows 176 pages and links.
Currently my site contains close to 200 pages of keyword rich text,that was in place at the first week of December and was crawled. I do realise it's to early to benefit from that crawl.
My site just isn't appearing under any keywords, I'm not doing anything that could be considered spam. By "peeking at" the other sites code it appears they are mostly cloaking, while others repeat a keyword "widget" hundreds of times.(thought I read here that repetitive keywords are NOT considered spam by Google, is that true or did I imagine that at 4 a.m.?)
Yet I am shocked when i find a site with PR0 on the first page of Google's SERP's in the top 10. Makes me think there are some techniques I've yet to learn.
Any helpful hints or suggestions would be appreciated!
Do the following: 1. Put your keywords in the Meta Title in the string that you think people will type 2. Repeat the string as a headline on your page 3. Repeat the string in backward links to that page from other pages
This is the basic. After this you have to get into the whole long process of increasing PR.
