Back With a Vengeance – I Need 30 People For My Next SEO Experiment (Take 2)

by Jason Acidre on March 21, 2011 · 49 comments · Search

In case you haven’t heard the news – I accidentally crashed my blog’s database last month and it took me over a week to fix things (Feb 17 – 25). I’ve also launched an SEO experiment last month, where I’ve asked my readers to participate, but sadly, I wasn’t able to see its results.

I apologize to those who have volunteered before and hope we can restart with this new project.

How to Participate

  • Just drop a comment below if you want to participate
  • Then I’ll send the instructions via email, don’t worry the process is very easy!

What’s in it for you?

Just like before, I’ll be giving in-content link mentions to those that who’ll be willing to participate on this SEO experiment (with your preferred anchor text), which will be included on the results of this experiment.

Sneak Peak

There’s a new factor that I wanted to play around for the past few months, and I just thought that this is the right time to do that (this is not similar to the previous experiment we’ve done last month) – primarily to revive this blog’s momentum. Here’s a quick cool spoiler of this experiment:

My previous post about how to optimize Ecommerce websites, which was published last March 15, 2011, was able to rank 1st on several specific long tails (which are really being searched by people, given that I only found out about its rankings through my analytics “keywords sending traffic” report).

I was thinking of making a post regarding this event a few days back at SEO-Hacker, but I backed down due to some missing factors – which actually led me to a much bigger idea. Feel free to comment below if you’re interested to volunteer on this experiment.  Thanks!

Available and happy to help if needed, thanks, keep us posted..


Kire@Rca ieftin July 22, 2011 at 2:47 am

This experiment seems to explain the relation between links and results. However, your website seems to have a lot of authority. I think this experiment must be done with a difficult keyword and a lot of links. 30 people will not be enough for this. :)


Pozycjonowanie Gdynia July 22, 2011 at 4:45 am

Can i jon to if its not too late..


Sean August 1, 2011 at 7:51 am

I agree. I think 40 would make for a better sample size. :) Love to participate in the future if this one is full.


jason dsouza August 2, 2011 at 9:13 pm

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
