I have never posted on any sort of website regarding SEO. Today i want to type a few things sitting on my mind about what I have noticed over the last 2 years and how Google's Algorythm has changed to cripple SEO companies tactics.
1 - Guest Posting, dont do it
2 - Directory Submissions, dont do it
3 - Article Directories - Dont do it
4 - Forum posting - No relevance or juice passed (dont do it)
5 - Forum Signatures - dont do it
6 - Forum Profiles - dont do it
7 - blog commenting - dont do it
8 - Larger more popular sites dont automatically rank better - Cough bullshit - Asda, Tesco, Amazon, John Lewis just to name a few
9 - Link wheeling - dont do it
10 - Dont buy Links
11 - Dont allow dofollow links in image adverts (banners etc)
12- Create good content. - might work great for very localised search terms but doesnt help in the slightest for national searches
If i look through many of the main competitors on an given hollywood search term virtually all of their links are made up of the following.
I wanted to get everyone elses views on how they are combatting the above and how Google are trying to control the marketing and push smaller companies into the dreaded adwords!
PS sorry about grammar and spelling. Just getting frustrated with the constant barriers that google seem to be putting in everyones way!!
