SEO Link BuildingLink building is a necessary and essential part of search engine optimization (SEO) now and will continue to be into the future. He who has the most quality links still wins. But the techniques to get links to our sites are becoming more and more difficult and time consuming. In fact many of the techniques that at one time worked so well will get you penalized today big time and will actually work against you in your SEO efforts.

For years people have manipulated the process by automating link building and using tools and technology to do much of their link building for them. Entire sites and communities were dedicated to these activities. Google’s Updates earlier this year were launched to devalue these sites and the links coming from them in an effort  discourage site owners from pursuing “black-hat”  or questionable link building practices.

Squidoo Lens is Tough to Crack

Squidoo Lens is Tough to Crack

 Before I get right into it today let me just explain to you a few thoughts about Google, linking, and how to rank in the search engines online. Pretty much the name of the game even in spite of the Google Panda updates is still about linking and link popularity. That is still ultimately the largest most prominent feature that is going to get you ranked in the search engines.

Now there are right ways and wrong ways about going about getting these links, which links are good, which links are bad, how many you can add over a period of time, relevancy, popularity, etc. If you are brand new to the SEO game it can seem overwhelming at first. But it really isn’t so complicated when you understand the basics of it and you have someone who isn’t some teched out alien trying to explain it to you after they’ve had way too much Starbucks and way too little sleep.

In fact that’s why we put the SEO guide up on the website to make all that SEO stuff friendly and down to earth in a one stop SEO resource stop. If you haven’t checked it out yet you really should. Leave me your thoughts when you do I’d love to hear what people think of the new changes.

But anyway back to what I was saying… Basically the thinking has always been the more sites that link to you the better. It’s a pretty simple concept really. And there have been and there still are excellent ways to get links to you site to build that popularity and rank online.

Some of the best strategies have included:

  1. Article Marketing
  2. Web 2.0 Link Building
  3. Social Bookmarking
  4. Forum Backlinks
  5. Writing Press Releases

They are still probably the best and most powerful ways to build links to your site and increase your search engine rankings if done properly. And that is really the key. My point is that doing it right has become a little harder than it once was when not so long ago you could bombard article directories with high page ranks all across the web with poorly spun articles and reap awesome results for it.

Those kinds of tactics today will get your content impounded and your account suspended today if you are not careful. There are still auto-submission directories out there that you can plaster but they don’t command near the page rank and respect they once did when it comes to the search engines, and Google has become very good at identifying duplicate content (articles created from the same content and spun into variations) identifying it as such and not giving you credit for the links.

Which really brings me to my point today which is just how crafty the web is at identifying duplicate and spun content. Tonight I was posting content to several of the best Web 2.0 sites with a brand new spun article that I only intend to use on 10 or so of the best Web 2.0 sites. I had spun the article and done a lot of hands on work to make it unique…

Let me digress here a minute and tell you that Web 2.0 sites are still awesome to get backlinks from if you do it correctly…

So anyway, here I am submitting this content to these top 10 or so sites and before I am done I have messages from Squidoo that I’ve got duplicate content and need to address it or it will be taken off their site! We’re talking about less than an hour or so and I haven’t even finished uploading the last of the batch of these largely handspun articles!

So my point is this… if a Squidoo lens is that tough to crack, then how much tougher is Google going to be to fool? Makes a person seriously consider the consequences doesn’t it?

Come check out the SEO online tab at http://daveschlueteronline.com/seo-online/   and get some further training on these subjects today. Also be sure to opt in for some deeper training and join the mailing list. You’ll move that much closer to my inner circle and some secret strategies to overcome the some of the objections to getting ranked and driving traffic.

As a bonus here are probably all the top web2.0 websites for creating quality backlinks. Write some content, link to your website within the content and publish it on these sites. It’s easy to do after you register and it will be a huge boost for your content and site.
