Really surprised it's Alexa rank is 490 compared to WebmasterWorld at 700. Why is evil (blackhat) winning over good (whitehat)? lol?
Because people want to believe that running Xrumer is the key to internet riches. They bought an ebook from a guy who makes $6545 a day on the Interwebs in his underwear. Easy money, just put up an affiliate site and spam blogs for backlinks.
The problem with WebmasterWorld is that the people here tell you to do hard work and build quality. That is much less exciting that making millions in your spare time. Blackhatforums are filled with people that want to be black hats, some people that lie about being successful blackhats, and maybe a couple people that know what they are doing - but they aren't sharing their good tricks.
As for the OPs question, the single best on page thing that I have seen is getting the Title right. Especially if the niche is not that competitive. I also have seen a lot of sites that don't redirect pages when the site changes. Fix those for a quick boost.
