Without backlinks how can we survive in the organic segment?
By being better than everyone else with better constructed websites! Seriously, I mean that and I don't mean blackhatted to hell, I mean every part of the site construction process down to the navigation, folder names, image names, every url name extension plus on-page layout.
I can add or remove an entire part of any of my sites with one keystroke and the addition or removal of just one piece of code in my directory navigation. Needless to say they're all hand-built and not on a CMS.
I have thousands of worldwide competitors yet there are only 20-30 sites that carry anywhere near as much relevant and quality widget information as me. My "biggest" competition are Alibaba type sites and I shall never get as many links or listings as they do however people realise very quickly those sites are fairly irrelevant to them unless they are a bulk buyer and I would say 50% of the time I outrank them anyway.
And about the logged in users, isn't the ration of logged in users is very very less comparing to the normal searches?
I have absolutely no idea, I know some people who switch on and log-in automatically and leave it permanently on Google...what percentage this is I haven't a clue.
At a guess I'm assuming quite a good percentage otherwise why would Google make so many attempts to personalise stuff all the time?
