SEO Strategy And Keyword Research

What’s Your SEO Strategy?

SEO, for those of you who don’t know, stands for Search Engine Optimization. It’s basically how you plan your web content to attract traffic from search engines like Google and Bing.

Different SEO Strategies

There are many different SEO Strategies. Some work, many don’t! Let’s cover some of the most common SEO strategies.

Mass Blog Commenting

This SEO strategy has been around for years and years. At first, back in the day, blog comments used to contain do-follow links. Now, almost none of them do. And even the ones that do, the search engines like Google and Bing have not been fooled by the millions of spam comments out there – they don’t give you any credit for these spam links. And in fact, if you have thousands of spam comments linking to your site, Google will very likely penalize your site.

Stay away from mass blog commenting! It doesn’t work anymore.

Buying Links

Just like mass blog commenting, this tactic that used to be the bread and butter of SEO no longer works. I would estimate that at least 75% of sites that sell links have been penalized by Google and those links are absolutely worthless – in fact, getting to many links from sites like that would dramatically hurt your rankings in SERPs.

Blog Link Wheels and Link Pyramids

Blog link wheels were hot in the last few years. And then the Google Panda update came and WHAM! Most of the people using blog link wheels have found their traffic from Google shrivel to a mere 25% or less of what it had been before the update. It looks like Google caught on to all the SEO firms and spammers who just created massive blog link farms. Sorry!

Naturally Building Links With Great Content

Seems like all the old automated SEO strategies don’t work anymore? That’s because they don’t! Google is way too smart to have a bunch of internet marketing noobies with Scrapebox or some other crappy automated software outsmart them. You can’t outsmart Google…forever. They will catch up to your shady black hat SEO tactics.

The only way to dominate traffic on Google and build a sustainable online business from Search Engine traffic is to naturally build links – and the best way to do that is to create GREAT CONTENT. If you create great content that helps people, that solves real problems – then you will naturally attract links to your site and you will be rewarded heavily by tons of search engine traffic.

My advice? Skip the automated software and go create some great content that actually helps people solve a problem. You can thank me later for saving you thousands of dollars that you no longer need to spend on another worthless search strategy.

You’re welcome!
