The Key to Ranking for Generic Viagra

As noticed by Dave, some of the Google search suggestions are leading to thin affiliate sites. See generic viagra or generic valium for example.

As shortcusts and search suggestions get more advanced and more common they are going to be cheap traffic sources for those who understand the engines well enough to benefit from them. As search engines roll out these features you can always keep searching and keep testing until you figure out what causes them to select certain pages.

I have no clues really...

But both Google search suggestions for "generic Viagra" & "generic Valium" have this in common:

1 - The destination pages have this text:

"[Name of drug]
Generic name: [generic name]"

Ex: The destination page for of Google search suggestions for "generic Valium" contains this text:

"Valium
Generic name: Diazepam"

Although the Viagra page ranks well in organic search results, the Valium page doesn't. And both pages and domains have low PageRank.

***

So I guess these little Google Suggestion are "drug" related? I've seen those suggestion in other contexts... better start documenting them.

Hum, I have no thoughts about this.

I have however followed the english search results for health daily for years. Not because I have any english site but we have a small swedish net news paper about health and fact check, journals and so on is better done in english if on web.

Things is different now on Google.com in the health area. Quite a big change I think.

I think they have added some sort of trust system which as a good result removed a lot of low quality results. Although also the change did have have negativ effects also:

1. Dublicate
A lot of the trusted information sites about health have dublicated information bought from the same source. I do not remember the name but they make monography for medicines in the US.

2. One type of site
Also now all sites is of the same "type". But atleast me searching for information only need to check 2 - 3 of that. But the rest is the same sort of site with the same or practical the same information.

I would like to see a mix.

My clients site ranks top 5 for top phrases on Google, and it isn't an affiliate site hosted on some edu website.

I must admit the SERPs are always a rocky ride with blackhat pages rising every day and now this page ranks top ten it's becoming quite competitive! :)
