Google Turmoil creates jobs

The recent google turmoils of the past year (and this year) with the google updates, the pandas, punguins and all other animals it did not only  produce chaos to the SEO circles ...  it has helped create jobs out of thin air ... 

Webmasters have rushed out to see what is going on with their websites but also SEO experts not having work or new SEOers are taking advantage of the opportunity to get some work done and get paid.  What work ?  

Can bad links hurt your google rankings ?

Have started doing significant SEO work lately (after long period of working exclusively on development) and got a chance to experiment with link building techniques and in particular profile links.  Mind you I do all the experimenting on non customer sites before I decide its worth the trouble and the risk.  I usually use my own domains that don't bring in any significant amount of money or use friend's sites after I explain the risks to them.  In this particular experiment I have used a friend's site.

Free Directory Submission Helper with 5000+ Free Directories

Directory submission is an easy way to build backlinks for your domain.  For non competitive niches a few hundred accepted links in directories can make wonders for your SERPs positions.  For more competitive niches directory submissions is not recommended on its own and its recommended that it gets combined with other SEO techniques.

Popular SEO Techniques

Each site requires revenue generation. This is only possible through sign-ups. Can there be sign-ups without attaining traffic? The answer is a firm NO. Websites hence adhere to different techniques which allow an active inflow of quality traffic. Websites need to be placed high in the ranking ladder of top search engines. This helps them in being siphoned by Google and other search engines just as a visitor types a relevant keyword.

Directories - are they worth bothering ?

Is directory submission still a good SEO practice?
friends, please tell me still the google directory submission useful for increase our PR. I've heard since there are a thousands of out going links in a directory the weight you gain from a directory backlink is very low. Do you agree? please comment.

This and similar questions about the topic of directories and their SEO value comes up on the forums quite often.  People new to internet marketing techniques usually associate good SEO with PageRank and while not unrelated one can not base their efforts on pagerank alone.

Pagerank 0, the new Leprosy ?

I have a game site http://www.gamesonline4free.net on which I do lots of experiments. It currently has a PageRank of 0 due to Google's penalizing it. Here is the reason: 6 months ago it was a PR4 but that was also the time that I decided to experiment with the Digital Point CO-OP network and the TNX network. DP CO-OP is essentially a link exchange network that serves links on your site and serves your backlinks in other's sites. TNX is more like a paid links network.

Content IS king after all !!

content makes you kingImagine you make a search with your favorite search engine about "keyword phrase 1" and you visit the first result (1st URL) but you return immediately to the search results - using search engine terms you bounce back. You now click on the 2nd URL and you never return to the search results. Lets say the same exact thing happens with 1000 other users searching for "keyword phrase 1";   What should that search engine conclude ? The 2nd URL is more fit to be on the 1st position for "keyword phrase 1". The 1st URL might not even be fit in for displaying in the first page of the search results of that search !!
