    Pretty awesome use of Google + SEO to create your own top 10 list. Wonder how long Google will let this go on.

    What? Searching? It's their business so I'm going to guess a pretty long time.

    I don't see anything special here. You just searched for a list of SEO excuses.

    If you look at the top 5 results, they are in particular order. You will see that the subdomains spell out...

    You Should Switch To Virante...

    That much control over the search results is pretty impressive (getting it to list in order like that, 1-5)

    Looks like the intent is to use <span> with onclick on the pages further down the list, <a href> on the the page you are on and those up the list.

    LOL, nice one.

    Direct link: http://www.google.com/search?q=five+seo+excuses

    Let's make DP number one for Five SEO Excuses by all repeating the phrase five seo excuses numerous times so by the time this Digg for five seo excuses hits the front page DP will rank first for five seo excuses.

    sure, but getting the top 5 spots in order for a single domain is the difficult part.

    I do believe if we read enough posts here we can find the five seo excuses in posts here. We may can even top five seo excuses is we look hard enough.

    Shawn, you up for making 5 additional subdomains real quick? Any name will do, as long as it has something to do with five seo excuses, or something along those lines. I mean, an un-sandboxed main domain with as many links as dp has should count for something... :D

    It is a pretty neat trick though, - I guess others will be jumping on the five seo excuses bandwagon and replicating the tactic.

    five seo excuses - debunking the myths

    five seo excuses myth 1 - It's Too Expensive. Fact by doing it you have a vested interest in the results and can do it for a fraction of the cost of a top notched SEO.

    five seo excuses myth 2 - It's Too Competetive. Fact by suitable choosing your keyword phrases to target you can get your toe in door and build up to the point you rank well for the phrase you want. Start small and work up.

    five seo excuses myth 3 - It's Unethical. Fact all successful business market themselves. By following ethical guidelines (white hat techniques) you can make your site a success.

    five seo excuses myth 4 - There's No Money In. Tell that to those that make a living from SEO. By successfully SEOing your site you can improve the marketability, improve sales, improve making contacts through the web, and improve imparting info, etc.

    five seo excuses] myth 5 - It Just Doesn't Work. Give me a break. Then why is everyone here at DP discussing SEO techniques that work

    You're not yet cool enough to change such a title to include the words Five SEO Excuses :cool: It's done for you sir.

    Can anyone run a KW density count on this? Me thinks it's 70% :D

    It was a fun project to work on. As an SEO company, we clearly do not believe that SEO doesn't work. If you read through our responses in the top 5 list, we make the case for SEO as a viable, effective marketing strategy.

    While I will say little more, I am sorry that we could not come to happier terms mvandemar. I certainly respect your right to make statements about my company and the work we did on your behalf.
