Proxy List Keyword Success
So I can tell you right now that SEO WORKS for keywords if you do it right.
The trick is to target less prominent keywords, so for example I decided that every time someone searched "find new proxies" I wanted my proxy list to come up in their results.
I then constructed a custom proxy list script.
I then optimised the html of the page (as best I could) for search engine friendlyness.
I then waited.
My proxy list Find New Proxies is now in position 7 on google for the keywords "find new proxies" and position 3 for the exact search "find new proxies".
It's getting organic traffic (about 4-5 UV's a day) so I consider that a general all round success for my experiment in SEO. The best way to learn, is by doing! And also by targeting your keywords in the url of your site ;)
Feel free to look at the html of my site to see how I attempted to make my proxy list google-friendly, and feel free to give feedback on my process (how to improve it, where I went wrong, why I'm completely wrong)
