SEO Guide

SEO is divided into two major phases on site and off site optimization. Even if there are special situations, in most cases for long term and stable ranking one will not work without the other. Onsite search engine optimization should always be the first phase of your SEO campaign since you are in total control. On site optimization is your presentation card to the search engines and it will tell the spiders exactly what your website is about and who you are. The first and most important thing is to have your content reachable to the spiders and it is not passwords protected. Your content should be in text and not in some sort of image.

On-Site Optimization is not enough these days to get on the top of the search engines. For a proper SEO campaign you need offsite search engine optimization which should be 65% to 75% of your optimization efforts. Off site optimization consists of all the techniques not performed directly on your website which mainly are back links from other sites.

Link Building Services – What do they do and why do you need them
Backlinks are now considered the foundation of search engine optimization and for most people they remain to be the most important aspect of a search engine optimization and internet marketing campaign. There is a huge variety types of backlinks and this can easily make it hard to understand exactly why and how they have an effect on search engine rankings. Before we look into different types of backlinks and why you need them all together, we are going to look at a real world scenario to help you understand exactly why backlinks important.

Web2.0 Backlinks

Web2.0 backlinks are one of the most popular types of backlinks to this date. They are very easy to make yourself however there are service providers who will create 50+ web2.0 properties with unique content for a reasonable price. To create web2.0 backlinks you first need to sign up to a web2.0 property site, the most popular sites are WordPress and Blogger. All you have to do once you have created a blog is post some content with contextual anchor text backlinks going to your website. You can use your keywords as anchor text to get even more value from the link.

Guest posts

Guest posts are similar to web2.0 properties. You have to write very good and strong content before contacting the owner of a niche related website. Most of the time if the content is worthy the web master will allow it to be posted on his high PR website with one way links to your page.

Social Bookmarking

Social bookmarking is very much like bookmarking a page in your web browser; however instead of saving it to your browser you save it to the web. SERPS see this as someone sharing the website with the rest of the world which is why it can have such a good effect on your search rankings. Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are often used as part of an effective social bookmarking strategy.

Article Directory Submissions and Contextual Backlinks

Article Directories are by many referred to as “content farms”. This literally means it is just a website filled with thousands upon thousands of articles. The good thing about these articles is they can be extremely relevant to the niche and keywords you are targeting, plus they can create backlinks to your website.

Blog Comments

Blog comments are quite self explanatory on their own; they are simply comments on other peoples blogs that link back to your website (usually with relevant anchor text to add keyword value). They can be very effective for SEO but you have to create quality contextual backlinks on low OBL blogs for them to have a massive effect. Unfortunately the are millions of programs that were developed to spam auto approve blogs which resulted in penalties that are now enforced. However in a link pyramid or link wheel they can be effective.

Forum Profiles

Like blog comments, forum profiles are very easy to understand. All you have to do is find a forum that allows links in the profile and make a link back to your website. They are not very effective, but very good for link diversity.

Link Wheels and Link Pyramids – How to link effectively

Link Wheels and Link Pyramids are all about gaining backlinks diversity so that your site looks natural to the SERPS. They work in very similar ways however a link pyramid simply points one tier to the next, where as in a link wheel the tiers also interlink with each other. This can leave a larger footprint and is not really used as much anymore.

The link pyramid

A link pyramid simply works to pass link juice down a multi-tier system, of which your money site is the highest point. For example:
Forum Profiles & Blog Comments > Point to > Article directories & Wikis > Point to > Edu, Gov and Web2.0 > Point to > Your site
As you can see in the above example, the website you are trying to rank only has quality educational, government and web2.0 property backlinks pointing to it. These can be in the X amount as long as they continue to be of high quality.
Tier 2 will hold several thousand article backlinks along with some wiki based backlinks. These are often automated and not only help to get your Edu, Gov and Web2.0’s indexed, but also pass link juice and authority down the link pyramid.

Finally on our third tier we have massive amounts of forum profiles and blog comments which will point to our article directory submissions and Wikis. This works the same as Tier 2 but the link juice passed onto the tier 2 links.
As the Google Algorithm changes it seems more and more people are trying to find a link diversity that helps them be recognized as an authority site in the eyes of the SERPS. Link buidling is not an easy task, because of the constant changes and high prices, this is why we encourage you to take advantage of our Affordable Link Building Services that provide only quality backlinks packages to add amazing value to your website.
