Why natural backlinks are more important than artificial backlinks?

To be simple website's Search engine ranking works based on quality content and backlinks. The ultimate point we need to think about is to write fresh and informative content for users and not to write rephrasing content for Google and other major search engines. Your readers will love to give a link to your web page content only when it is found unique. This natural backlink has more weight age than your artificial backlinks such as directories submission, web page posting and so.

Content that attracts readers are given more importance by Google and other search engines. Readers who link to your webpage would be high and with right anchor text your web page will be boosted link anything.

Artificial backlinks needs more time and effort and to find the right sites for submission is not so easy. As per Google guidelines, paid links submission without “nofollow” attribute will be a big cause for penalty. Even if you pay for links with “nofollow” attribute, the link juice flow doesn't work like before. Instead if you put more efforts for writing quality content then over night you will have a high chance of getting more natural backlinks from your readers.

Writing quality content is a onetime effort. It automatically works for you round the clock but link submission is a repeated process. It is not that you need not get links from quality human edited directory; it is as simple as that you need to give more importance to write quality content to get natural backlinks and it grows as it reaches mass audience. Through researches it is found that natural backlinks brings more relevant users and conversion level is high.

Why do Google list lower Page Rank site higher at SERP's in comparison to high Page Rank site?

Google lists sites based on the search algorithm. Some of the main factors are site authority, site search engine friendly structure, related unique tiles & tags, quality content and backlinks.

If you search for your keywords and compare with your online competitors, your listing would be different based on many factors. Here many do think "how competitors site ranks well even if their Google Page Rank is low than my website".

You need to understand two points, first point is that the Page Rank you see through Google tool bar or any 3rd party online tool is of old data. These are tracked for Google’s internal references and they are no more related to SERP’s.

And point 2, site SERP’s varies based on content and quality backlinks with right anchor text related to the site subject and also sometimes there would be difference based on keyword page you focus. Keywords in home page ranks well then keywords in inner page. So compare all these SEO factors with your site and improve your SERP’s.

How SEO's mistakes turns to black hat SEO?

Black hat SEO is not only about keywords hiding or getting links from link farms and link distribution software’s. This also involves the SEO methods that don’t follow Google's, Bing's or any top search engine guidelines.

Still many SEO's think keyword stuffing will work or they think they are doing the right way without checking the site keyword density and it can bring those organic results. This is again one form of black hat SEO. Here is the Google guideline on "Keyword stuffing".

Inlinks bring popularity to your websites and link juice gets your listing top. Natural links are good and you can get those links by attracting your readers with quality contents. But many do go for paid links and it results in violation of guidelines. Here the guidelines on "Paid links".

SEO is a process that should be taken care by following guidelines. If you don’t do so then you have high chance to get penalized. As well have your content unique and quality. Do not have copy content, modified / rephrased content or content scraper that can lead your site to get penalized.

Will Google Buzz help SEO's?

As we all know link building is one of the big factor for SEO and to one of my old email account I get loads of mails asking for link exchange on various industries. Btw, I have no idea how the email id has been spread out :)

Link exchange guys send their mails with information and criteria for reciprocal links. As Google buzz launched few days back, is based on a Gmail service that has a follow and unfollow system like twitter with a revolutionize in concept having an option to post comments to individual followers, showing liking to the buzz among the followers and emailing the buzz to desired people.

Through all these manner it will help link exchangers to post there reciprocal sites with information specific to their industry related followers and the work would be much more easier and sustained, compared to mass mail as of now ;)

Feel free to post your comments on how Google Buzz can be used.

Does Google treat all links equally?

This is a question many think about when they deal with SEO. Does Google treat all links equally? . I will say a big NO.

There are different types of links, search engine algorithm evaluates and ranks. Here they go,

Internal links and External links - Both links are treated differently. If the External links are bad neighborhood sites then there are chances for your site to be dropped in search engine listing. Internal links spreads link juice according to the number of times the pages are interlinked.

Relevant links and irrelevant links - If your website link to irrelevant theme site then there are possibilities for your site to rank low.

Paid links or purchased links - Google and few search engines do not encourage Paid links that helps to pass link juice and this is considered as violation of Google's webmaster guidelines. As well all Paid links are not considered as violation. There are few solutions like adding no follow attribute to the link and by redirecting the link to a page that has been blocked by robots.txt.

Anchor text HTML Links - Within the site the HTML links with Anchor text has the most value and passes good amount of link juice.

Image Links - within the site Image links with most suitable and relevant ALT attribute gets the second level value and link juice.

JavaScript Links - As per the latest update Google started crawling these links but gets the third level value and link juice.

At this point, as far as links are concerned it plays vital role in both on-page and off-page optimization. So start planning before you go with the types of links.

How Google Sitelinks are Created and Managed?

Google site links helps users to get more idea on what the site or blog is actually about and  Google site links are generated automatically for better user experience.

Here an example for sitelinks. Search Google for "SEO Help Blog" keyword and we can see sitelinks listing. This helps users to get an idea on what the Blog is about and the users can click directly to the page they need without navigating to find the most useful topic. Added, only the best site or blog gets sitelinks and they provide a better visibility to search users about the importance. For sitelinks screenshot, see below,

As well, if the Blog or webpage author is much popular then you can see sitelinks for the author name search "Jagadeesh M", as seen in screenshot below,
We don't know exactly how Google algorithm works, including sitelinks and they the factors are internal to avoid users from manipulating search results. But still out of several examines and experiences we can understand how it works. Here is a list that can give you an idea on how it works.

  • The Blog or Site that mostly lists first for a specific keyword(s) creates Sitelinks.
  • Search engine friendly structured navigation.
  • Reasonable organic search traffic.
  • Good Blog or site visit from search results.
  • Site or blog age and frequent content update.
  • Good amount of useful internal links / outbound links.
  • Inlinks from quality sites or blogs.
This list may be a small part that helps creates sitelinks but these are important that works all time.
By now as you know Google do not provide option to add sitelinks since it is generated automatically but Google provides site or blog owners and webmaster to remove / block sitelinks which they feel not needed. Google Webmaster tools can manage links in Google sitelinks. Hope you know about Google Webmaster tools and you might have configured you site or blog with it. In Google Webmaster tools we have an option "sitelinks" in "site configuration" navigation that can be found in left hand side of the dashboard.
Expect now you got an idea how sitelinks works and if you don't have one to your site or blog, start working on it and if you find your existing sitelinks are to be managed, then work on Google webmaster tools sitelinks option.

Ask your SEO / SEM / SMM Questions in Search Engine Watch Forums . You will get answers from me and fellow search engine industry leaders. Best!

What type of Paid Directories does Google like?

Many do think that Paid Directories are totally uncounted for sites ranking by Google algorithm and some think all paid directories are same for Google ranking. Which one do Google go with?

Google only supports editorial Paid Directories i.e. paid sites inclusion through manual review following quality guidelines and rules. Before submitting to a paid directory do double check for its recognition. Some may have just added there terms of use as editorial or human edited paid directory for namesake but actually may not be. Do not get stuck with that. Don't get paid and banned from Google. Consult with some top search engine forums or industry leaders and you may proceed for paid sites submission.

Here few editorial paid directories you can consider

http://dir.yahoo.com
http://www.joeant.com
http://botw.org
http://www.sezza.com
http://www.ezilon.com
http://www.gimpsy.com
http://www.goguides.org
http://www.dirjournal.com
http://www.skaffe.com

You may also recommend editorial paid directories through comments if I have missed any

In addition you can report Google about paid links that violate guidelines by using this authenticated paid link report form

Secrets Behind Link Building, Avoid Search Engine Spamming


On reading this post you should be able to do link building with simple steps that I believe should help you do effective link building. For a natural link simulation most of your back links should adhere to the following strategies:

Your targeted keywords need to vary a lot in anchor. Limited number of “click here” should help you to have good link building. When it comes to English websites, it is commonly accepted that more weight-age (not the page rank) is got from links of related pages. Try not to have the back links all over the footage of the site or at one particular location. Try spreading it over the page, like top of page, or within the text, navigation, etc.

Never try to place hundreds of link for a new site on the very first day. Gradually increase the number of links. This normally relates to the number of links a site gets. Hence if a site has an average of 20 links per day, then do not try to increase it to 200 links suddenly. Chances of being banned from Google are high. Focus on quality not to the quantity links. Having most of your back links from the adult sites or casino sites or pharmacy sites is not recommended and such sites are known for spam.

Google tends to keep a track of all the IP, checks your links coming from different C Class IP or Not. So see to that all the links to your site comes from different websites. Always have a good combination of links from new and old sites. Reciprocal links are a good option for back links (Yahoo and Bing (Former MSN), but too many of them can be a problem too. 3 way linking is a good option. Do not make the mistake of underestimating the back links to your internal pages. Since SEO is done for your internal pages, have the back links done for these pages too. Use varied anchor for these internal pages too both as inbound and outbound links.

Directories need to do some extra work on the links that you already have. Such directories need to be opted. Only a few selected directories like ODP and Yahoo are trustworthy. Other directories that might look good can even cause much problem to your links. So you need to be careful while submitting to directories. The time limit of back links seems to play a crucial role, and this is taken into serious consideration by the Google Sand box filter. So focus on links to be rented on long-term basis as far as possible.

Google tends to devalue the back links that come from links that could have words like Advertisements and sponsors. So be alert while you look for back links from similar links. Google is seen to use the advanced relation algorithm and the co-citation system in its algorithm. Hence we need to be careful when we choose our back links. Do not have your links from the pages that are with bad neighborhood and also the sites that they themselves link to such type of sites.

There are numerous factors that Google takes into consideration – like the IP Address, domain name, written language of the site, etc. Apart from these it is also very necessary to show the search results in the Google country specific searches. So be very cautious in deciding the language of the site when you design it for Google.

Go through the above points very carefully and recheck your website and if any found in your website, rectify them. If you continue with those mistake, they could harm your website at any minute.

Strategies that get you links:
A method where content is considered very important and also gets its links naturally is called link baiting. Any link that you have due to your content is considered in this type

Link submission directories:
There are many link builders and SEOs who focus on link building and directory submission. We have different types of directories: pay-for-inclusion, reciprocal required, free and niche directories. And we do have specialists working on each of these directories. There is a huge list of free SEO friendly directories available for submissions. And about the reciprocal directories, we have both the brokers and non-brokers

Submission of Articles:
Try writing articles having links and have them in the resource page of your site. You can also pay someone to have the articles written for you and use some specialist to submit them in to the directories

2way and 3way links:
The old and a good way to get links – I link to your site and you link to my site. This will be helpful if you have around 50 plus sites, which can help you to give and take most relevant links. And remember the rule: its always that you contact people and they do not contact you first.

Get links from your own websites:
This is the best way to get links in case your website had lots of relevant pages

Alert with Link Vault:
By this method you get mostly footer links and low quality links, try avoiding link vault in your site with red flag

Subscribing to high page rank sites:
It is also possible for you to rent pages with high page ranks ( 5-9) for various prices But remember to rent only relevant sites. Renting too many sites of high PR is not preferred

Avoid Search Engine Spamming:

Search Engines are used to provide the most accurate results for your search queries. Still people have been trying to play with search engines. Search engines are regularly upgraded to provide better results and hence forth they cannot be misjudged if they give poor results due to bad search queries by the visitor. Still search engines are being developed to withstand all these tricks and provide the best of the results to the users.

Spamming of search engines includes all possible ways to cheat the search engines, and it is to be noted that these methods put tour website at a very high risk.These practices that give us false results and the websites that fool us are penalised and they tend to lose their ranks or are blacklisted and are removed from the indexes of the search engines and can also go into serious legal issues.

Points that are considered while identifying a website using spamming techniques or not :

· When a website consists of hidden links or hidden texts or invisible texts
· Pages that are not meant for people who visit, but are generated by machines for search engine activities.
· Pages that are not belonging to your main website, but instead are created for search engine purpose only.
· Websites that consists a huge amount of keywords in the content, but the page is of no value.
· When the visitor (human) and the search engines are not viewing the similar content - cloaking
· Link spamming – linking with content that is of poor quality / less content
· Excess usage of cross-linking, keywords in the page
· Presence of site submission software's that execute automatic URL submissions
· When you submit your page/site to a search engine/directory more than once in a month
· Title tags, keyword meta tags that have words that are not seen anywhere in the page content
· Using same meta tag in multiple place (like when you use more than one title tag)
· Website pages are duplicated - same content, different file names

Decide - Spamming techniques or ethical search engine optimization technique

Search Engines now in usage handle spamming very effectively and if any spamming is found, the website can even be not indexed. In case if you are using any of these spamming techniques and these bring in a lot of traffic to your site, then be sure that this spamming technique is sure to be identified by the search engine or chances of any user also sending report about your tactics is high. This can very easily bring down your page rank and even be blacklisted and banned.

Ethical practices always assure you long-term successful results and do not let you lose anything. While the Spamming techniques give you short-term success with very high risk, and hence this is not recommended. Search engines take the pride on giving valid information and hence they never allow anyone to fool them, and if they identify anyone on doing this, they are sure to be taken out of their web presence.
