  1. Hi, as regular user of SEO content technics with some blog sites and some specially selling sites, I am not sure if I agree completely with smaller importance of being on the first site on Google. I am using long tail method and I am ranking with some products pages on first site. Up until now I am still getting far better results on commercial keywords, although I would sometimes want to be better with long tails.
    Example: my niche site ranking first is giving me regulary 30 leads, with only 30 posts on it. My broad site (not niche) has now already 300 posts and giving med decent traffic and conversion little bit over 30.

    1. Hi –

      I am come from a web culture [Toronto Canada] where Google first page SEO is King. Unfortunately the websites suffer User inconveniences, poor styling and derelict content – so when the website arrives on Google Page 1 – you wonder why they got there. It is this problem the post seeks to address.
