Just a bit of fun to get an idea of who can do what around here... :)

whats your best piece of SEO work? - by that i mean rank, number of competing pages and the PR of the page. Anyone can get number 1 with a PR of 8 and only 10,000 competing pages... :)

I have a number 4 of 1.6 million, pr 5 - only ok - but not bad considering the PR...

howz about you guys? What are you most proud of?

richardb, it's depends on which market places we are talking about;) this is a single keyword game isn't it in competive market place I hope.

the best we had was for a three word phrase which we had 16 out of the top 20, before we got slighty burnt ;)(well like a forest fire still hold the top 3 slots, we had #1 out of 4,670,000 for 8 months until it got burnt.

my favorite is #1 (PR 8) against 390,000. I own half the listings on page. :) It is my favorite because I've kept it for three years.

#8 of 2,710,000 with a pr of 5 is my most profitable page in my personal files- therefore the one I'm proudest of :-)

#1, 2 or 3 across 50 SERPS (State Names). 3 word search term "Widget Sources State" Never more than 3-5k pages returned, so not hard to attain, but no one else in the niche has tried, even in their own market.

PR4

Yes, it/they produces traffic. Same page filled in dynamically via PHP.

I've got #12 out of 2,270,000 and a PR4. It's a personal site that's been up since July.

:)

I've learned it all here.

Thank you.

I've actually never checked my "pr" but...
It's amusing to me that one of my pages that is in a competitive seo field ranks #4 out of 1,710,000 results for a 3 word keyphrase. This is amusing to me because none of my sites are about seo, just one page. It's a "freak of nature" because im not that "smart". It's got a link on it to WW, since this is where i have learned the most. WW has a page listed just under this page.

I have another page that ranks #2 out of 591,000 results, it gets a suprising number of hits, i had no idea it would be such a popular search term.

We have a PR of 6/10 and #2 ranking out of 7.1 million. But we don't get much traffic from it because the keyword is not a heavily searched term. We are working on optimizing for keywords for the first time.

There you go boys and girls lawboy said what i was looking for.

#1 out of 7.1 no/little traffic
#1 out of 25,000 gets us 30,000 per month in orders.

It's not always a numbers game, single keywords are cool, but a lot of surfers know what they want....

example only: I want a new car, I don't type in car, maybe the manufacturer + car or model + car.

like Hotels who searches for Hotels, No one it's to hit and
miss I want an hotel in New York not one somewhere in the world.

Don't get me Wrong, an SEO worth there salt will aim for that one keyword so they can hang 2 and 3 word searches off it, aim low to start with and build, build, build.

staying power = build something to last

#2 and #3 out of 2.450.000 (PR6 and PR5)

Question: With geo-targeting, how can we compare positions? Maybe we have several members who are #1 for the same keyword.

#3 out of 2,790,000 - the two word money phrase. Just dropped to low PR4 and still holding, a load of backlinks got killed. If -ex rolls for good in it's "Dearly beloved departed."

The other is #1 out of 4,140,000 for a two word money phrase we'd all like to have this time of year, was PR6 but now high end PR5. Funny thing, that was a small one time job a year and a half ago and it's held fast ever since. Never had to touch it again.

That second one's my all time favorite, it's got the secondary phrases too, and loads of little ones. Went up to 4 gig of bandwidth a month.

Both are pretty much across the board, not just Google. Neither belongs to me, I'm gonna have to find me some STUFF to sell. :)

Most regionalized keywords rank between #1 and #8 but my favourite for playing around with is #19 out of 15,900,000 I get quite a bit of traffic from this one, but I would love to see what was on offer if I managed to get it listed within the top 10. Most traffic from this keyword comes from Yahoo, as within their SERP's it is located on page 1

Site is PR5

It depends if you use quotes around your search terms or not. I was #4 with quotes...and nowhere to be seen without.

No 13 (top 10 for one year) - two word travel term - 1,870,000 results at G - two inbounds showing at marketleap for AV only - PR2 on Google TB - no G inbounds

My personal favourite:-

#1 for for all related keyword searches for niche market "widgets" out of about 15,000.

And I love it that way - it's all beautifully targeted traffic and we are exactly what those searchers are looking for. So they find us and they *stay*.

I'm with 2_much though - it's about having a balanced portfolio of sites (if this is really what you want to do for a living), some in niche industries, some in highly competitive industries and a few in between. Use your skills on all of them and with a bit of luck you'll find a decent balance and hopefully you'll get a cheque every month without too many void periods.

#4 out of 1,720,000 with a PR4

I beat 4 .edu sites all with at least a PR5

Several other sites that rank #1 out of a couple of million for a couple of keywords.

Top performer probably no.2 out of 2,910,000 - PR 4

or

no. 1 out of 1,310,000 - PR 4

The one I'm ost proud of, though, is no. 37 out of 94,700,000 - PR 5
