Web 2.0 Website Ranking Tactic That You May Have Overlooked

With the emergence of Web 2.0 sites comes the ability to easily get first page rankings and free traffic.

If you've ever searched for the long-tail keywords in any market, you may have encountered phrases in which a majority of the first page rankings belong to Web 2.0 and social networking sites.

It's becoming common knowledge that the search engines love to rank Web 2.0 sites such as Squidoo, Hubpages, Propeller and many others.

Here's how you can benefit from this fact.

Perform a search for your long-tail keywords of choice. When you find one of these keywords which rank on the first page, go to the Web 2.0 site which is ranking and sign up for an account.

Now that you have an account at the site that is ranking for your keyword, create a page on the site and use your keywords when creating the name of the page.

Usually, the Web 2.0 sites will place your keywords in the url for that specific page. Let's look at Squidoo for example. When you create a Squidoo lens, your page will look like this:

Let's say however that your keyphrase is already taken on the site. The site would not allow two people with the same url so you would choose something similar. For example, if someone has already used the key phrase with dashes in between the words then you create a page without the dashes.

What will happen is that you will also rank below the page that is already ranked. On Google, your page will be indented. Google indents pages which belong to the same website but have similar title tags. This method will generate some traffic for you as you already know that the page has the ability to rank well for that set of keywords.

Here's a little tip that will boost your rankings even higher.

Many Web 2.0 sites have RSS feeds for your pages. Just take these RSS feeds and submit them to various RSS feed directories. This will generate backlinks to your pages and increase their rankings.

Here is a small list of Web 2.0 sites which are very search engine friendly. Look for these sites when using this strategy for ranking your long-tail keyphrases:

Searching for long-tail key phrases will uncover many more sites which are search engine friendly.

By focusing your energy on just this one tactic, you can receive some nice free traffic to your webpages.
