Hello my dear readers. How are you ?! Did anyone suffered any heart attack after the recent google update ?! The position for some of my main keywords bounced in the latest days like mad. I was on 4 gone to 85 back to 15 again to 70+ and now I’m in top 10.
Google claim that only 3% of results in english have been affected by the alghoritm change but I bet it is more. To keep the story short this are my impressions after update: Google doesn’t put too much weight on backlinks anchors anymore but trust old domain names and good, related titles. Also social networks like G+,FaceBook and twitter are also playing a major role and tend to be trusted when it comes to give authority and place a domain in top 10.
4 Tips to recover and continue your SEO process
- Include social networks
like Google + , Twitter and Facebook on your website. Create pages on this social networds, find friends, post updates and also post widgets on your website. To be rewarded as an authority site in your niche google need to see you are trusted by real people. If you ask me the trend is to put more weight on social networks links and less on backlinks. So if you are not already on facebook, G+ or twitter signup ASAP and link your website.
- Create backlinks with anchor relevant to the page you promote. Do not stuff a lot of related keywords as possible anchor text, just stick with highly related keywords that are present in the page you create backlinks for.
Example For URL http://scrapebrokers.com/april-2012-auto-approve-package with title page: “April 2012 High PR Auto Approve List” should be created anochors like auto approve package, april 2012 autoapprove, high pr auto approve list, high pr list and related keywords. Backlinks created with anchors like “free backlinks, good backlinks, order backlinks, scrapebox tutorials” will not help and may be targeted as over optimization.
- Create quality backlinks for the money site. You need to take care of the backlinks you build for the money site (main site). If you use auto approve lists make sure you blast your main site only on High PR and high authority websites. Main Auto approve list can be used to blast backlinks of the backlinks you created (2nd tier). Blasting entire auto approve list directly to money site will definetly look like spam in google’s eyes.
Example: For url http://scrapebrokers.com/april-2012-auto-approve-package I blast only to High PR (+1) list and Edu List. Then all the backlinks created I put in a list and I blast that list to the other auto approve list.
- Diversify your backlinking strategies. Is very important that the backlinking process should look natural. For that you have to diversify backlinks using multiple methods including guest posting, web 2.0 propetiers, bookmarking, video, forum profiles, high pr niche related blog comments. Doing only one method or two is not helping and may be targeted as platform spam. Also qeep the link building number to low figures. It doesn’t help you at all you create let’s say 100 backlinks each month and then once create 1000 backlinks in a day or something. Remeber that backlinking process should look natural.
This are some main tips I use to build backlinks and do SEO for my main websites and helped me succeed in this game. As you know SEO is a game that never ends so there are changes every time. That’s why we have to keep our methods updated.
I’d love to hear your comments guys.
