I’d like to take a moment and expand on a previous post of Worth vs. Value, and I have some questions for the flatbedders out there. How many of you learned how to run those ‘ol skateboards mostly by yourselves? How many of you went to a training course at a carrier? I mostly taught [...More...]

Rank algorithm update from google weeded out a lot of good or bad websites, in the hope of furnishing it’s search users better results, google engineers published blog post which indicated there were 11.8% organic search results will be affected, in another word, there are about 12% of google search results are considered low quality by google itself. The update was initiated more than a year ago, and recently I see some of my ranks were lowered considerably, but almost all the ranks promoted by articles and blog posts were not affected, a few of these keywords ranked better than ever, it becomes clear that linking campaign the old way is the thing of past, probably due to links crammed sites being thrown away by google.
Now what on earth is plain link building and how do people do it? a large percentage of SEO firms will do this, they put your links on websites which only exist for holding links, the content on those sites will never be updated, almost all of them are garbage, the name link spamming are just for these sites. Now google algorithm probably will weed out these sites, any links on them will be affected too.
Examples will be great for explanation. When I got into online marketing long time ago, I started with this keyword, lift sling, at that time almost every body was doing plain linking campaign, a lot of sites I used had too many links, and those sites had only links, no real content at all. In the beginning, the ranking of the keyword in question rise pretty fast, eventually the keyword could be found on first page, this was the case until google made the change. Now let’s look at another keyword, chain puller , most back links for this keyword are from articles and posts, almost no plain links, the rank for this keyword is making me real happy. Old and outdated linking campaign lost to content linking, what’s next? It all boils down to content, when you create unique and quality content, you will attract readers as well as search engines. It’s never too late to build good blogs for business purpose, such as this interesting blog, best baby strollers , I build it as a hobby and kept adding good or mediocre content, now it can even rank the highly competitive keywords. Now you can see, blog marketing with great content is the way to go. Say you’re building your own bogging network, something like moving pad, then it will be easier to do article marketing.
Bottom line is that you should create great content, publish and share with people, promote your business with the content, this strategy will prevail in short or long term. The virtues, persistence and patience, are essential for your success, nothing will automatically improve overnight, it doesn’t matter you’re doing SEO or advertising your business, keep writing, publishing, sharing and creating, you will see the day of success.
