In the first place ask yourself this "Do I Need Google to Rank My Websites at all?"
Since Penguin and recent Panda updates many lost position on first page and start panicing. But what is happening - we glorify the almighty Google as if there would be no alternative. Google is dictating how we do our business but is it how it should be?
We are making our self dependent on Google and we do what they dictate just like if they would own the WWW. But you Guys forgot that we shape the WWW not Google, MSN, Yahoo they just distribute our voice. Do your research and you will find that Google is promoting its partners or business they think are relevant - but are they. When i type "make money online" in www.google.co.uk two first postions are taken by www.moneysavingexpert.com and how relevant is this - rubish. Guys stop using Google at all to shake them up. We own the internet not Google. There are many alternative ways to deliver your message.

Some SEO companies believe that merely provide diverse backlinks spread over many types of web 2.0s like blogs, forums, video shares, redirect URLs, etc that this is quality backlinks. I have argued this point with them that THIS USED to be the way it was.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure you need only AUTHORITY backlinks from .edu/.gov plus high ranking PR4+ sites to increase your own page rank and SERP?
If there are any articles by Matt Cutts or from those in the know...
One more thing...Good Keyword Research, think questions, think like your audience, for example if your a dentist, think dentist, then (dentist) use it constantly with (dentist City) (Dentist city braces) (dentist city braces sub braces cat), so that google will look into that, because it's going to want to give people exaclty what they want, you can check people or do your own google page keywords, and you'll see how google is using your keywords...(main key word), (keyword a name), (main keyword name phrase), (main keyword name phrase keyword question)
Right now, Seo is changing, and backlinks do count, so of course, SEO your page, keywords are important, long keywords are most important, and with that you can beat yoru competition, no matter if they are beating you now...social is proof, so make sure you do that as well, and along with all the other domains if you want to get other domains, the other way is to pay for it for other people to do the work for you on a monthly charge.
Local is easy, make sure you are in as many citations as you can be in, ex...yelp, superpages, urban spoon, and the like...
Make sure you are listed everywhere, like the directories, the web 2.0 sites, the social accounts, the book marking accounts, and of course, get backlinks from other sites.
it can be yours or other sites from others that are local from you
You want to rank high, this is the formula...keep your site Seo'd, put a video, an image, link to high authority sites, have them link to you...
re: Make sure you are listed everywhere, like the directories, the web 2.0 sites, the social accounts, the book marking accounts, and of course, get backlinks from other sites.
I agree... web 2.0, blogs, forums, social bookmarking, etc seemed the way to go... but NOW are these of LOWER importance with Google? I believe what Google is looking in raising a company's pagerank is to have incoming link from PR5+ websites... to have your money site on these pages is a huge boost.
Yes, I agree. It is a huge boost. Say for instance you start passing articles in tumbler and stumbleupon. It can be used to promote your business, but also to post other interesting content that people might enjoy. You get eyes on that content, it gets shared, and this site has a link back to your site.
Of course, you can also do research and buy a high pr site with backlinks, build it quickly and drop your link in that one, you can also sell links to help with your investment.
How many other sites do you own? How many relationships do you have? What type of budget do you have to invest in page ranking?
People that rank high pay money, but it doesn't have to be that way for you, if you have the right stuff.
You still have to pay money, do not get me wrong, but the money you invest will be for you, and your site only.
You want to rank, then get on ranked sites, and you can purchase domains on them on auction sites, but be careful with fake rankings...then once you have, work hard on it fast, and keep it's ranking, but make sure it's relevant to your site, now you can add your own link for about 2 thru 3 hundred bucks without the monthly charges.
You can still monetize that newly highly rank site, because you can sell ads, and provide backlinking to other relevant sites...
Then go and find other domains and try to purchase everything on the cheap, look for domain age, ranking, and backlinks...buy it, and customize it, build another link to it.
Lots of credible link building - work harder or spend more to get quality and relevant back links - make sure your web site is SEO page optimized and indexes you for the best keyword and keyword phrases you can profit on. back links is the most direct way and faster if you can get real quality links - keyword rich links.
