Dude, you're going to wear out your thumbs.
Koedoes to Optimus01 for jumping in, head first.
I have 2 things I am going to ask:
I have heard, about SEO, that:
Your content must be mono-topical.
If your website covers too much of a range of stuff, it gets treated like a news site, and only the newest stuff is kept on top of the results. But, if there is very specific focus, you're already 70% of the way to being on top and staying on top.
Am I hearing wrong?
Google is localising results more and more.
Search results from a South African user tend to show results from local (South African) websites (locally managed, not locally hosted) with higher priority.
Care to comment on the viability of my observation?
From what I have seen, you are correct on both accounts.
