There are so many factors that go into starting and promoting a successful site/blog. If you've read my blog for any amount of time (if you're new to the blog welcome!) then you already know how I feel that keyword research and SEO (search engine optimzation) or two of the most important factors to being successful online.
Whenever I'm doing keyword research I also do some "competition" research right along with it. I go look at the top 5 to 10 results and I "size" them up. One of the things I'm looking for is the number and quality of inbound backlinks to the pages I'd be competing with ... make sense?
This video i found on YouTube does a great job showing exactly what I do to analyze backlinks for the pages I plan on competing with and it's worth the watch.
So ... Do you do keyword research? Do you also anaylze the pages that come up first in the search engine results? Do you check the backlinks to those pages? Will you from now on? LOL. Let us hear from you. *SmiLes* Suzanne
