Ranking #1 In Google Is Easier Than You ThinK

I've Deconstructed The Algorithm Down To A Science: Here's How To Rank For Anything
SEO isn't dead.
Anyone saying it is, hasn't got a clue what they're talking about.
But it is more difficult than it ever has been.
You can't just point a few targeted anchor text links at your site and rank within weeks. That's asking for a visit from the Penguin.
And you can't just buy a bunch of PBN links without having to high of a homepage-to-homepage ratio.
But just "create quality content" and all that nonsense Google advises you... isn't going to do a thing for you.
So let's cut the crap:
If you want to rank today, following Google's rules does not work.
Try it yourself if you disagree.
What Works Is Understanding The Algorithm For Your Keyword
Think about it:
If you had a list in front of you of every factor Google used to determine your rankings, you could literally rank for anything.
All you would have to do is look at the factors...
Check them off 1-by-1 as you go through it...
And bam, you’re ranking. Eventually, anyway.
This is called "Data-Driven SEO".
Except, unlike downloading a list of rank factors from Google... which they're never going to give you.
(...And for a good reason, the organic results would be terrible, if it were that easy to game...)
You Test Things
And you test a lot.
And if you can’t test yet, you learn what you can, then you test that.
See, these tests help you to...
Deconstruct The Algorithm
"What are the factors Google look for when selecting the featured snippet?"
"Do social signals impact rankings?"
"Is the sandbox real?"
And then there's keyword specific data:
"How importance is backlink relevance for this keyword?"
"How aggressively optimised can my content be for my keyword?"
“What is the optimal link velocity?”
These can all be answered by running tests and analysing keyword specific data.
And when you've ran enough tests, and ranked enough websites, it’s no longer "luck" or "chance" whether you’re successful...
Ranking Becomes a Science
It comes down to whether you have enough time and money to dominate a keyword, nothing else.
Skill isn't a barrier to entry because you understand the algorithm.
You know exactly what it takes to rank, for anything.
So when a client comes knocking on your door to work with them, there's no fear of not delivering, or hesitance, it's just certainty...
"I CAN DO THIS FOR YOU"
That's how you close deals.
Or if you're into affiliate SEO.
It's no longer about whether you can make money, it's whether you'll make enough money to justify the effort and investment.
You can rank either way, it just comes down to selecting the right niches and the right offers.
That level of control comes from...
Becoming a "Ranking Scientist"
An expert that can rank for any keyword they like, given the time and budget.
Do enough testing, and you'll get there. I guarantee it.
But if you're serious about owning that skill, there is a faster way...
Testing is SLOW
See, testing comes down to learning new things, piecing them together, and then running the tests.
This works, just very slowly.
First you've got to become proficient at something, say PBNs.
Then you've got to come up with ideas for the tests.
"Does having traffic on a PBN site increase linkjuice?"
Then you've got to run the test with a large enough sample size that the results are accurate.
It's not something you can do in the next 30 days. Especially for every part of your ranking process.
But here's the good news:
You don't need to...
I've spent the last 7 years testing and deconstructing the algorithm for you
From having affiliate sites destroyed by Penguin, back in "the day", and losing half my income overnight.
To ranking for thousands of keywords with pure duplicate content - good ol' mass page sites.
And generating tens of millions of dollars in sales for my clients internationally, ranging from local businesses to national brands, eCommerce stores, etc.
As a result of that, I've been slowly deconstructing the algorithm and developing simple, repeatable processes that myself, and my team, can implement to consistently rank.
And today, I want to share those processes with you.
I call it the "SEO Accelerator"
This is my blueprint to ranking. For anything.
But it's not for everyone.
In fact, there's 2 people I'd recommend closing this page right now:
1. Squeaky Clean White Hats
90% of this is totally clean white hat SEO.
The final 10%? Well, I'd be revealing my secrets. But you won't want to see them anyway.
2. Lazy opportunists looking for a perfect formula
Again, SEO is heavily data-driven and keyword specific today.
Meaning there is no perfect formula. Instead, I'll show you what data actually matters, where to get it, and how to use it to formulate your keyword-specific approach.
Okay, let me explain how this works:
