Devalued Navigational Links: Quality Content with Contextual Link Works Wonder

When it comes search engines, google is still the king, and they are doing everything they can to maintain their lead,   in the name of providing more relevant search results for it’s users, according to their official blog, this change impacts 11.8% organic search results, put it this way, there are about 12% of google search results are considered low quality by google itself. The update was initiated more than a year ago, and recently I see some of my ranks were lowered considerably, but almost all the ranks promoted by articles and blog posts were not affected, and a few of them even gained a few positions, it’s almost a sure thing that plain link building loses all it’s attraction, at least in the eye of google.

Now what on earth is plain link building and how do people do it? There are a lot of SEO company out there are doing this, they will get links from any websites which accept adding links, these websites will only be updated when new links are being added, it’s safe to assume all of them are trash, the name link spamming are just for these sites. Now google algorithm probably will weed out these sites, any links on them will be affected too. 

Maybe a few examples will make it clear. When I got into online marketing long time ago, I started promote the keyword, Dog Collar, of course with old way of link building, a lot of sites I used had too many links, and those sites had only links, no real content at all. I would give credit where credit is due, this linking strategy worked, lately the keyword link stayed on the first page for a while,   the honeymoon lasted until google changed it’s mind. Here is another keyword, chain puller , most back links for this keyword are from articles and posts, with very few plain links, you can imagine how this keyword ranks. Now contextual links win the battle, then what? It all boils down to content, as long as you dole out high quality content, you will attract readers as well as search engines. How do you do it? Writing articles and building blogs, for instance let’s examine this one, sherri hill dresses , I build it as a hobby and kept adding good or mediocre content, it’s no way this site will rank, right?, actually, no, much to my surprise that the site actually ranks for quite a few keywords. As we can see, blog marketing with great content is the way to go. Say you’re building your own bogging network, for instance Vehicle First Aid Kit, you will have the power to push any sites up in search engines.

Bottom line is that you should create great content, get people to enjoy and share your stuff, in the mean time advertise your business with your content, your effort will reward you handsomely in the end. The virtues, persistence and patience, are essential for your success, you shouldn’t expect things to improve overnight, be it your business or search rankings, let’s keep building and maintaining our blogs until end of the day. Ezine is one of the best article directories out there, google will index a new article on ezine promptly, of course your posts on some blogs will be indexed real fast as well, let look at some aticles or posts which are published and indexed, let’s look at this one, Traffic Cone , good writing, interesting content, indexed and cached, all these points make it perfect for SEO.

Last but not least, we have hot social media now, no one can afford to not using them.

Publish Your Great Articles on Blogs and Article Directories will Improve Your Rank

When it comes search engines, google is still the king, and they are doing everything they can to maintain their lead,   in the hope of furnishing it’s search users better results, on official google blog it is estimated 11.8% search results will be affected by this update, put it this way, there are about 12% of google search results are considered low quality by google itself. They planned and started the update about one year ago, maybe that’s why some of my ranks dropped out of first 10 pages, on the other hand almost all keywords promoted by contextual links are not affected, a few of these keywords ranked better than ever, it’s safe to say that old way of link building is doomed.

Now what on earth is plain link building and how do people do it? There are a lot of SEO company out there are doing this, they add your links to those linking websites without context, the content on those sites will never be updated, almost all of them are garbage, the name of link spamming sites is justified. New google algorithm most likely will punish these link spammers,  the links on those spamming sites won’t work anymore.  

Let’s check out a few examples. It was quite some time ago, I needed to rank the keyword, dog collar, it was old way of link building all the way, a lot of sites I used had too many links, and those sites had only links, no real content at all. I would give credit where credit is due, this linking strategy worked, eventually the keyword could be found on first page,   the honeymoon lasted until google changed it’s mind. Here is another keyword, chain puller , we promoted this keyword with articles and blog posts, not too many plain links have been built, the rank for this keyword is making me real happy. So contextual link wins this time, what about future? It all boils down to content, so if you create great content, not only people will love to read your stuff, so do the search engines. It’s never too late to build good blogs for business purpose, take a look at this blog, best smartphones 2011 , I build it as a hobby and kept adding good or mediocre content, you probably think this site won’t rank a all, in reality this site is doing pretty well for more than a few search terms. Now you can see, blog marketing with great content is the way to go. Say you’re building your own bogging network, for instance ratchet tie down, then it will be easier to do article marketing.

Remember content is king, you just need to create content, publish and share with people, promote your business with the content, this strategy will prevail in short or long term. Persistence and patience are the keys to success, you shouldn’t expect things to improve overnight, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, let’s keep building and maintaining our blogs until end of the day. When publisinh articles, I prefer ezine, a new article will be indexed and cached in less than an hour, of course your posts on some blogs will be indexed real fast as well, let look at some aticles or posts which are published and indexed, say this Snap Hook, quality content, nice presentation, indexed by google, all these points make it perfect for SEO.

By the way, if you don’t take social media account, you’re lost. For wordpress blogs, I recommend twitter tools, get a twitter account and API keys, set up API credentials in your twitter tools option, then make sure every new post will post a new tweet, it’s simple and elegant, no one should miss this tool out.
