How Google Would Build Links For Mortgage Rankings

Update: Welcome Sphinn, StumbleUpon users. How can you rank for competitive keywords like “Mortgage Calculator”? I don’t know about SEOBook since he’s always talking about it, but here’s how Google would rank for a bigshot mortgage term like that.

1. Buy a ‘make your free website’ WYSIWIG-and-template-based website, a la Geocities. Augment with a whack load of cheap hosting across different C blocks and IP ranges. For domains, you can use subdomains or include them free (compare that to the cost of buying a link…).

2. Have a bunch of graphic templates made focused on the real estate sector. Pictures of houses, happy families and dogs, simple layouts, obvious email address/phone number, etc.

3. Hire students to cold-call real estate agents and offer them free websites, and some resources on where to promote them (i.e. a basic how-to-do link building guide and quality directory list). If they ask what the catch is, be honest and tell them that there are links to your mortgage calculator webpage from their own sites.

Presto, you have:

In fairness, the last two also carry a pretty big brand imprint which gets lots of free, juicy editorial links. But who the hell has ever heard of ‘’ (unless you’re in the market, obviously).

What’s especially sweet about this is that it’s endorsed by Google. Ever seen those ‘Powered by Blogger” badges? On Blogspot subdomains… Templated … And links to a mortgage calculator site from a real estate broker – that’s standard in the industry anyway, so it’s not like offtopic links from something else.
