Google: Most Sites Rank Without Link Building

2017-11-30T22:09:17+11:00Categories: SEO News|Tags: , , , |

I think John Mueller was stirring the pot a little bit with this quip. Undoubtedly many sites will rank without links for some bizarro terms, but... try ranking for non-brand, competitive commercial terms without them. Go on, I dare you. Of course he could have meant most sites don't need to go on a sustained link *building* adventure. Thoughts?

Local SEO Ranking Factors: Reviews Most Important

2023-12-09T08:02:42+11:00Categories: SEO News, SEO Tutorials|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Google – No Manual Action No Disavow 

2017-11-18T07:49:06+11:00Categories: SEO News|Tags: , , , , , |

Well now. Disavowing links is a thorny issue, and Gary Illyes has waded right in there. Google is now saying you don't really need to spend your time submitting link disavow files to Google unless you've got a Manual Action from the webspam team. Unsurprisingly, some webmasters disagree. Often they have built services on disavowing links.

Yet Another Rubbish Poll from SEJ

2017-10-05T22:03:11+11:00Categories: SEO News|Tags: , , , , |

I love a good poll with insightful data and, well, insights. This isn't one of them, sadly. See for yourself. If I wasn't quite so trusting, I'd think venerable SEJ was doing a bit of shameless link-baiting, running a big poll, mentioning other biggish SEO brands. They wouldn't do that to us, would they? This is an extract from TWIS SEO News & Updates 29 Sept 2017. That's worth a read as well. #SEO #SEONews #MarketResearch #AccurateData #LinkBuilding

Link Spam – Should Google Ignore or Penalise?

2018-11-13T15:15:55+11:00Categories: SEO|Tags: , , , , , , |

This post discusses Google running into a bit of trouble with links. After going through a period of penalising LinkSpam, Google has been ignoring bad links algorithmically more recently. This has now led to a rise of new spam techniques, especially with the rise in Content Marketing. It's likely there will be a focus on linking penalties in the near future.  If you would like to discuss ways Google is ignoring links, and ways to generate good quality back links, please feel free to contact me. #SEO #LinkSpam #LinkBuilding #GooglePenalties
