Is link building really taboo?


Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Have you noticed how any references to  "Link-building" sound like a slur now and that this has much become a taboo practice?

A service loved and used by all, and in fact still heavily promoted by many to the naive, is now being discarded and and in light of Panda and Penguin changes at Google, more a taboo practice than something that adds value.

Anyone marketing an online business knows (well you should and if not you do now.) by now that cheap link-building is not only dead but also simply a waste of your money, time and effort. It's been slandered the world over, and is considered offensive in every sense of the word and I might add, not before time.

Yes, it was one of those things we all indulged in. It was like collecting shells on the beach, hoping you had more than the competitor next door. At the time it served its purpose and actually improved rankings but the inevitable was bound to come and it did by way of Panda/Penguin updates at Google that saw this practice exactly for what it was - link farming and not adding true value.

So what if you did indulge in any of the distasteful link-building practices in the years leading up to 2012? Well hopefully you have cleansed up your online presence by now and are resolved to do the right thing in 2013.

And what, you may ask does that constitute?

Link-building, after all, should be one of those bad practice habits you should drop and replace with current best SEO practices should it not?

Alright then... let's take a quick look at the right things you should be doing certainly in 2013 for ensuring the best SEO results for your website.

Creating meaningful content in your social network with blog content


Thursday, June 30, 2011

I have said it before and will continue to do so, “Content is King.”  Your arm is to attract visitors to your website and this is best achieved with meaningful content.  (refer previous article “content is king”).

For those who have adopted a social marketing strategy, you will be looking for content to post.  If you are writing blog articles you have something meaningful to post to your Facebook page, twitter feed or linked in page.

Updating all your social network sites can become a time consuming exercise.  You also have to remember which sites you want to update and which pages.

Is Social Bookmarking Relevant


Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Yes it is.  You may not see the value of using Facebook for yourself but this is not the only form of social bookmarking.  It just happens to be the biggest.

Every little link counts!  If you can get them easily and at no cost, then even better.  Social bookmarking delivers to this beautifully. It also puts your name, your brand and your products in front of other people who though they most likely won’t do anything the first time they see your name, with continual references and sightings it will create an awareness, even if only at the subconscious level.
