      Side question, what do you use to make the graphics in your blog posts such as this one? Do you use a service or an app, or what?

    Great post. Bookmarked.

    Regarding number 4 "Acquiring an Existing Website" and how to decide which websites to buy.

    A strategy I used a lot a few years ago was:
    1. Overspend on google display ads.
    2. Check in google adwords after a while to see which websites sent most sales through the display/adsense ads.
    3. If the website was a huge site like nyt.com, I would write it off. But if it was a small affiliate site I would try to buy it.
    4. Remove the ads and put in some editorial ad to your website instead.

    I would also include in the sales contract that the previous owner could not remove any links to website after the sale, since it would risk the serp position etc. If he controlled the websites where the links were of course.

    Hi Matthew,

    I loved this epic content, awesome. Driving traffic from search engines is an art. We need to implement a lot of strategies in a genuine way to get high rankings in search engines.

    I know half of the tactics that you have mentioned here, I'll follow the missed ways to get organic traffic. Thanks!

    Google launched in September 2012 for algorithms for EMD(Exact Match Domain) but we can see the that type of domain in search results. why?

      Are you referring to Google's apparent weakening of EMDs for ranking against keywords? If so, the reality is that they haven't done a great job of it. It's difficult for them to separate out whether a website should rank for it's domain keyword(s). Not only that, but most people link to a website using its domain name as anchor text. This pushes more keyword focused anchor text links to the domain and creates a stronger case for it to rank for those keywords.

      In fairness, Google has devalued these domains a lot. Go back a few years and you were pretty much invincible if you had an EMD.
