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. Read about it in this extract from TWIS SEO News & Updates 10th November 2017. #SEO #SEONews #LinkSpam #LinkBuilding #LinkDisavowal #WebSpam

Google LinkSpam Algorithms Don’t Use Disavow Files

2023-12-05T19:23:59+11:00Categories: SEO News|Tags: , , , , |

I'm really intrigued by this train of Google discussion. It's around Link Spam and whether Google uses / used the disavow files webmasters submitted to populate their spam combatting algorithms. Google says no. Webmasters say yes. (SNAFU, really.) I'm in the "it'd be rude not to" camp, but don't think Google used the files directly. I also think both sides are talking at cross-purposes.

2023-12-11T16:20:56+11:00Categories: SEO News, The Week In Search|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I enjoyed writing this week's SEO News & Updates. So much so, I thought I'd share them with you lovely people ;-) This week: Google likes the algo monitoring tools - kinda. 301 redirects don't dilute PageRank. Or do they. Bing says links still important. Who Bing? Google doesn't use disavow for linkspam. *cough* This week Google says it doesn't use click data for search rankings. Sigh. As well as some toptastic SEO Bits & Pieces. Read it all right now. #SEO #SEONews #Redirects #PageRank #Links #Bing #LinkSpam #SERP

Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc NoFollow External Links

Every now and again, there's a little ray of sunshine as I write the news articles. And the news that guest post link spammers Forbes, Inc and Entrepreneur had nofollowed their links shone a light which brightened up my dark, dark soul. It just shows that when Google fires a warning shot across the bow, people tend to take notice. Read about it and ping me if you want to discuss. #SEO #SEONews #LinkSpam #LinkBuilding #ContentMarketing

Hooray! I was happy about Forbes etc nofollowing linkspam. Then I noted JavaScript-only sites miss 35% of traffic. Whoops! Google is caving to the EU - Goliath vs Goliath. I was right about dealing with recurring event content. Google popped stats about searchers not using "near me" as much.  Finally, a Twitter trawl for the SEO Bits and Pieces, and TWIS SEO News & Updates w/e 01 Sept 2017 was done.

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
