    I've been waiting for this day....
    Finally crashed the #1 spot on Google for a term I've been hankering after since 2003.

    Made all the more satisfying by the fact that the site promotes a merchant that told CJ to blow it out their ass.

    Me happy boi.

    How superstitious of you, Trust

    I remember ranking #1 in Yahoo and 3 in Google for a GREAT search term a few years ago. It stayed that way quite a while. Much much harder these days though.

    But grats! And make hay while the sun shines....

    I don't think it's harder as far as the algorithms are concerned. I just think the bar has been raised for earning un-reciprocated links. It's really important to be discussed in the blogosphere now-a-days for SEO benefits. That's where having a press-worthy product is important.

    A link is a link. I have a site that has no links from blogs and it's doing very well in Google, lots of page ones for different keywords. And then if you compare blogs vs. what people call a regular website, blogs have an even higher instance of spam. If you have good links from good places regardless of what they are, is what counts. Point being, you don't need links from blogs to do well in the search engines but of course links from blogs or wherever are going to help.

    Great! Now use the super glue that Haiko gaved you to stick your website there!
    I've had a number 1 for a popular term, and it stayed there for 2 years. Earned a lot of money out of that...
    Now just dont stop the link building, adding new content!

    Awesome! Congrats!

    I seem to do okay without tons of links. I find that Google crawls us within hours if we add content to our home page. Still trying to figure out the insanity of all this. But, the "content" thing is our best ally right now.
