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).
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.
