Does Google Hate You?

 

Recently, Google updated their algorithms again. This caused many people to lose ranks in the search engines. I waited to make a post about this so I could monitor anything I noticed over the previous few months.

However, I didn’t experience any sliding at all. In fact, my sites increased in ranks in the search engines.

So if you’re using the Niche Blitzkrieg methods that I teach you’re safe.

Here is why I think many people lost their rankings outside of NBK.

I believe some people out there are using methods like link spamming, link farms, mass comment spamming and other frowned upon techniques. If you have no clue what those are… good. Stay away from them.

Here is what I use the most still to this day.

Articles (link building within the resource box).

1 Way Links (love this program for automation).

Press Releases.

Directories are still good too.

These are my favorite link building methods and the only reason is….

Because they work.

Link building isn’t going to go away.

Ranking in the search engines isn’t going to go away.

I am going to add a few tips here to help you even more as to what I would ultimately avoid.

#1. Keep building links.

#2. Do not build shallow affiliate sites – these are sites that have very little to no content, just a few pages and are loaded with affiliate links. Make sure you have good content (over 250 words on the page as well), the content should also be unique. Don’t use content that you do not own.  When in doubt add more pages/posts to your site. Hey more content can’t hurt. It can only make your site better and add more openings to get more traffic.

#3. Avoid link farms and link buying deals. Basically any sites that just have a ton of links on them (outside of directories) If someone tells you they will get 10000 links for $100 bucks run away.

Tools like 1 way links will help you automate your link building and are safe. They are safe because it’s a non-spammy way of link building. You actually have to do a small bit of writing to make it work but the rewards are high.

Remember, as I mentioned in several other posts.

On page optimization + link building = ranking in the search engines. I cover that in more detail here.

Not ranking where you want to be? Keep building links into your site and never forget that each page/post of your site ranks individually in the search engines.

So to sum it up.. Google doesn’t hate you.  Google wants to make sure it’s giving it’s users the best search results and not stuff that has millions of spam laced links driving it.  However, Google hates shady tactics for a good reason – so steer clear.

Great information for people that are worried Michael 🙂 I myself own more than 100 websites and didn’t see any major fluctuation other than on my tested link-farm websites.

Out of 100 websites, I had 5 that were using link-farm techniques as they were my first few websites I ever built. 3 out of those 5 have been deindexed for a while. My other sites though are all safe. Actually just like you I saw increase in rankings, probably because there are so many link-farms on the web that when they were deindexed or lost rankings, the other websites below them moved up 🙂

Again, great stuff thanks!

Thanks Mike I was worried about the changes google made but I can see that the niche blitzreig system still works because one of my sites leaped to page 4 on google in like 3 days.

Thanks for the great information on the way Google and the other search engines handle the link farms and spammy link building techniques that a lot of people use on a regular basis.

It seems to me that if you want the results to last for years to come then it’s best to build your links the right way so you don’t suffer the consequenses.

Hello Michael,
thanks for the information. How about profile links like Angela’s method? Is it considered dangerous now or is it still safe?

I am happy to see the Niche Blitzkreig method is still working. Michael, all the advice you have given us so far has been good – no reason to think that would change now.

I am still new at this, but have every confidence that this method will supplement my retirement in a couple of years.

Sigit,

I personally don’t use that method. I would switch away from that and go into more article marketing and systems like 1way links. If you’re putting out several submissions a month the 447 fee for 1way will pay for itself fast.

Tom,

So right. If we get sloppy we pay for it 🙂

I am not on board yet, Micheal, but that is about to change shortly. The above info has sealed the deal. The testimonials are frosting on the cake.

I most certainly looked forward to learning from you.

Michael, I totally agree with you. If you put out great content like you teach then you will be fine!! It is content farms causing all of the problems. Great content and link building like you teach is what works! Thanks for all you do!
