It has all the "secrets" you need-- and basically, the most important secret is--
If you like no-nonsense SEO, Brett Tabke's a pretty good source. I like my SEO a little more friendly, though.
That sounds like a big but competitive market, indeed. Best of luck! You know where to come for advice, that's for sure! I'll stop on by the site critique when I have a bit more time but I've spent more time in here than I should've already today-- I went over 500 posts sometime today and never noticed. Isn't that funny?

How much money you got?

Well, here's a scary one for you-- I was right behind qwerty for a while. Now look at him!
I like it here. I got a lot on my mind, and being here helps me out a lot. I know where I am and I almost always know what to say. Amazing how valuable that is in times like these.
>How much money you got
And, perhaps more importantly, how much time you got? I never understood "time is money" until now, but lately I've been realizing they're worth about the same, and especially in the world of the Internet, you can go about as far with each one, but you'll go farther if you can combine and balance the two. Don't waste either one chasing rainbows-- figure out what you need and how to get it, and if you have to pay for it then do so, but don't spend more time than it's worth to get it for free. (An invaluable bit of knowledge is to figure out how much your time is worth in hard currency, and go from there. If you could write a program yourself that costs $40 to buy, but it would take you $90 in man-hours to write it, then buy that sucker and be on your way. Unless you could re-use what you learned in writing it to make a whole bunch more programs, in which case it's more of a toss-up. The real difference between success and failure comes in being able to properly judge situations like that.)

I can't say that I'm a wealthy man or woman(yet); I can tell you that I don't have enough money to ask someone or some company to do SEO for us.
How much money you got?
I can't agree with you more, dragonlady7. With that say, spending so much time posting a bunch of messages in this forum is helping you to reach your success whatever it means to you?

I am asking for a review here; http://www.highranki...?showtopic=1135. If anyone has time, please take a look at our site and give us comments and suggestions. Also it would be nice if you can help us to get 20k unique visitors monthly to this site(SEO suggestion, etc.)

It sure is. It's an invaluable way for me to combine pleasure with business-- I get a kick out of it and get fabulous advice all at the same time! I was so inspired last night by what I learned here and at cre8asiteforums that I was up until after midnight working on my [starting up a new freelance] business stuff... I may have to cut back, though, because my budget now doesn't include enough sleep time and my eyes are falling out.
I'll take a look at your review later (remember, I'm cutting back now!) and let you know if I have any ideas. Good to link to the review from here, though!

Looking at these statistics, 20k a month seems very possible if I focus on keywords such as "online degrees", which my site does quite poorly currently. Am I being a little too optimistic? Am I seeing the statistics right? Any comment, suggestion or advice would be appreciated.

Will it be a piece of cake? It rarely is. It'll take a little "sweat equity" and some time. There's simply no replacement for hard work.
FYI, I just ran a quick search using allintitle: online degrees and online degree. There are 24,100 or so sites with the first phrase in the title and 33,000 with the second in the title. So you will have a fair amount of competition for those terms. Still, neither one of those terms is nearly as competitive as "online education" which has a whopping 293.000 sites with those words in the title according to Google.
Still, I don't view it as anywhere near impossible. You'll just have to make sure to dot all of your i's and cross all of your t's. And work both sides of the fence effectively, meaning optimizing on-the-page factors for your keyword phrases, and work on off-the-page factors or incoming links. And while you're at it, make sure you don't pigeon-hole yourself by trying to rank well for just a few keywords. IMHO coming up with a list of good keyword phrases is going to be a key to your success.
You do have one thing going for you in this particular market... From my quick glance at the SERPs there do appear to be a number of directories which list and link to online education sites. So you shouldn't have too much of a problem finding relevant sites to link to you.
