We have heard of the recent Google Panda changes to update its criterion of filtering the web contents affecting many SEO techniques claimed by many. It’s because a lot of SEO software tools have been invented now to escape or even ignore the rules of Google; giving link builders that opportunity to submit even low-quality contents just to attain traffic. These spammy contents have already dominated the network like virus, delivering unnecessary information to viewers.
Since Google’s agenda is to deliver only relevant and quality contents to its customers, they have been stricter in screening web contents today. If you’re thinking that using the same SEO techniques for your article writing would make no or little harm, then you are very much mistaken. In fact, a wrong move can even greatly harm your online business’s reputation. The following are three SEO techniques that are no longer work after Google Panda update. This will also serve as a warning for you to rethink of using the same methods again.
Submitting articles to almost every popular article directories you know.
Google had some issues with popular article directory sites such as Ezinearticles, Wisegeek, and Mahalo; among others. Because of the low-quality articles that can be seen here, Google has marked these as ‘low-quality’ sites. These sites are now being closely monitored after the first penalty. They may have also been detected some duplicate articles. Now that you know that page ranking is not based on the number of sites you’re posting it to, you have to be more watchful in choosing article directory sites. However; Ezine has promised to be stricter on the approval of the articles.
Sharing your links just about anywhere.
- Moderate link sharing is also very important. Some social media websites and online community forums are now also being closely screened by Google. Avoid posting your links on sites that are not administered well. Google has a way of marking these sites as spam due to the number of repetitive links and spammy advertisements posted here. So the next time you visit a forum, make sure that this is a strict one that implements its house rules in regards to moderate posting or advertising. You wouldn’t want to receive a negative web reputation in turn for the massive exposure you’ve longed for.
Using SEO software or other SEO tools.
- SEO tools’ agenda is to make a lot of duplicate contents or spin your articles without being disapproved by plagiarism detectors like Copyscape. Sounds good right? But now, after Google panda update, they cannot allow these kinds of articles to dominate their network anymore.
Given these facts, the best thing to do is to produce unique, high-quality contents only. When writing an article, do not be traffic-driven. Several below-the-average contents are nothing compared to a high-quality one. This is a good principle to remember now if you want to have effective web marketing by ranking a good spot in Google.
Instead, think of ways on how you can connect to people through your articles or blog posts and how can it benefit your readers. In turn, people will automatically share you your articles because of its relevance and authenticity. Google will help you as well upon being one with their good agenda.
If you are availing SEO services from SEO companies, make sure that they know these rules as well. For your complete safety, read the new Google Panda update rules to continue your web marketing without facing any harm. It’s always best to comply with these rules, because your SEO techniques will be of no value when any of these is disregarded.
