Maybe its just me, but it seems as though lately everybody seems to have an answer since Google’s proverbial SEO “wrench in the gearbox” desecration of the SERPS. It took a couple of months for them to regroup, but they seem to be back again, maybe even stronger? They had to redesign their silly splash pages, write new content, and record new video’s, but the SEO guru’s are back …unfortunately.
Fortunately for me I know better, and from what I’ve wasted my time reading thus far, I know that these purported SEO guru’s don’t know squat about panda’s either. How do I know this? Real simple. Actually open one of the bazillion emails that your inbox and spam folders have been littered with, go to the ugly splash page, and cull a couple of the keywords and long tail phrases from their site and do some random searches. See what I mean? You don’t see their pathetic splash pages there, do you? Yea, and you were actually considering spending the $3-500 for their “guaranteed” backlink generator submission tool thingy, right? Why would you buy something from someone when they can’t even demonstrate that it works for them for effective SEO?
Take your hand off the mouse and step away from the monitor if your thinking about blowing your hard-earned money on some magical devise that will help your site rank high in the SERPS. There is no single devise. Are there software programs and submission tools out there that will help with your SEO? Absolutely! But you better be careful where you step in Google’s minefield because your surely to get your leg blown off!
If your going to implement some effective SEO campaigns you have to be versatile and very, very patient. Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket, and surely don’t jam 1,000 backlinks to your website in one month. I personally go for quality before quantity, and I’ve heard that perhaps 2-300 backlinks per months doesn’t seem to sending up any red flags, but I would be very careful… If you have to, buy a couple good high PR links, but make sure they come from aged domains that have decent archives, not just jammed content for the past 6-12 months.
By the way, I thought that I would mention that my friend James has got some tips if you need to recover from Google. A lot of good reading over there, and since Griz has been on the lamb “working” — how dare he — I’ve had to find a new source to read from someone who actually knows what they’re talking about. How do I know that they now? HINT: “experiments” ;-)
