Hi All,

I used to come to this site regurlarly five years ago when I used to work in the web field. I then moved into another field. However lately a few opportunities have presented themselves and I find myself looking back through this great site to get upto speed. While doing a search in webmaster world I came across a great article that Brett wrote <B>Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone [webmasterworld.com ]</B>. Back in 2003 this site was an excellent resource and I used it to build a couple of sites that regsitered well in the SERPS. My question is are those pearls of Wisdom still relevent today? and what else do I need to watch out for?

Hello avicenna, welcome back to the forums.

Indeed most of the 26 steps still apply. I think when Brett wrote it, there was a 'general approach' in mind outside that of which gets you a successful site in Google. After scanning it briefly I think you can safely skip this step.

(From Brett's thread:)

J) Submit
Submit the root to: Google, Fast, Altavista, WiseNut, (write Teoma), DirectHit, and Hotbot. Now comes the hard part - forget about submissions for the next six months. That's right - submit and forget.

what else do I need to watch out for

As there is a dedicated forum for Google specifically and you might not have visited in a while, the Google News library [webmasterworld.com] contains some of the more pertinent threads of late, as well as the older ones.

There is also a hot topic F.A.Q. [webmasterworld.com] which gives a good indication of the more frequent queries people have nowadays relating to Google, and what's assumed to be fact.
