One of the trickiest things about search engine optimization (SEO) research is knowing which SEO guru to believe.
Pesky Google Penguin and Panda algorithm changes have devastated many websites' rankings, and so a heap of SEO gurus have jumped at the chance of telling us how to solve our ranking problems. But how much of their advice is reliable? How much of it is based on solid research – or just unfounded theory?
It's SO easy to jump to wrong conclusions, based on insufficient data.
Aiming to solve this problem, Ken Evoy of SiteSell, creator of the SBI system, recently supervised some massive in-depth SEO research. The research was aimed at discovering facts, instead of theory.
Ken led a team of 149 people – including 15 quality assurance volunteers who spotchecked every review – to analyze 411 SBI websites, their owners' actions, and those 411 sites' search engine rankings.
All told, this SEO research involved well over 2,000 hours. (That's the equivalent of one person working business hours for a WHOLE YEAR!) A staggering number – more than 100,000 – data points were gathered in spreadsheets.
The aim of this comprehensive study was simple – to figure out why some websites rank better than others in Google. It studied which sites were affected – or not affected – by Google's Penguin and Panda algorithm changes.
The result: The Google Unified Study and Report.
I've been studying this 10-part report and taking careful notes. It provides action steps to get your site out of trouble – or potential trouble – and improve your search engine rankings.
This is real need-to-know stuff for any website owner.
Here's why SEO gurus aren't telling you about this groundbreaking SEO study. It's published out of sight on a private forum – the SBI users' forum, where only SBI owners have access to it.
Because this SEO report is highly confidential, I can't summarize its findings here. However, I can tell you this much…
Key points of the study address…
- Helping younger websites continue to grow and avoid problems.
- Helping older sites (growing or stable) to do better.
- Helping older sites that are suffering to recover.
Supporting information, stats, graphs, and so on, are also included to help you see where search is going so you can plan accordingly.
This a careful, scientific, in-depth study of 411 websites and their rankings. To the best of my knowledge, nothing on this scale had ever been attempted before.
However, the quality of this SBI research didn't surprise me.
With SBI, it's all about value
Providing value seems to be built into Ken Evoy's DNA.
SBI users have learned to expect a stream of updated, in-depth, how-to articles, instructional videos, new add-ons and new modules. I've been using the SBI system and recommending it for more than a decade, and I've watched SBI keep on growing and improving as the Internet changes.
I've called SBI “the No.1 tool for affiliates” but it's not only for affiliates. The SBI system provides a comprehensive education in online business-building, teaching you how to build valuable niche websites that generate useful revenue for years. It teaches you how to brainstorm a profitable niche, build a site, and market it. It also teaches you several different ways to generate revenue from your site.
With the SBI system, you don't get just a “site builder.” You don't need to worry about looking for separate hosting, paying for a separate keyword research tool, etc., etc. You get a heap of business-building tools all in one place.
SBI owners know that there are easier ways to build a site. However, online profits require more than just owning a collection of web pages. SBI includes all the tools and a proven process you need to build a long-term, profitable e-business.
As well as the Google SEO research, a flurry of new releases and special offerings keep rolling out to SBI owners, all at no extra cost.
For example, see some of the recent additions to the SBI tools.
Another recent addition – 10 sharp new website designs. SBI owners have more than 200 site design templates to choose from. (See one pictured RIGHT) All styles are fully customizable so you can get your website looking just they way you want it.
Check out just a few designs that are achievable with SBI templates – some have been customized, others are “as is”…
If that list of SBI tools looks daunting, don't be put off. The SBI process makes things simple for you.
The Action Guide provides a step-by-step process, in both written and video formats. All you have to do is follow it. The most successful SBI owners say, “All I did was follow the Action Guide“. They don't get sidetracked, or have to guess what to do next. SBI's guided approach helps you reach your goals.
By the way, I must warn you… If you're doing research on SBI, you need to beware of false information. Some people just seem to love to hate Ken Evoy. And some write fake reviews of SBI with the aim of selling you something else.
It seems you can't get to have tens of thousands of users, as SBI has, without annoying some folk.
The important thing you need to know is that Ken provides a rare level of dedication to his customers. For example, he's extremely active in the private SBI forums with more than 9,000 posts. He makes a tremendous personal effort to help people succeed and is highly passionate about helping people build businesses online. Anyone who owns SBI can benefit from this extraordinary Internet business visionary.
His latest groundbreaking Google SEO research is just part of a long history of going the extra mile as he helps SBI users build successful businesses.
