12 Feb Google's Going To Tell You What Links Are Unnatural

  Finally Google has told us that they will tell us, or at least gives clues as to which links they deem inappropriate and are potentially ruining your organic ranking. While the problem for a lot of companies is that they don't screen which "SEO" company they hire, or their in-house team is as clueless as 99% of link builders out there. If your brand isn't even attracting any links at all you're NOT DOING IT RIGHT. While we're not against building...

30 Mar Linklove 2012 Conference Preview

  The time has come for another Linklove conference here in 2012 and it looks like the lineup of speakers is nothing short of the best ever. The conference was today and I wish I could have attended but I cannot be everyone at once so I hope it was a blast!

11 May Link Building Webinar From Affiliate Summit

I just caught this hour long webinar from the fine folks at Affiliate Summit, but the talk comes from inbound marketing strategist Chad H. Pollitt from Kuno Creative. While it's entitled "Link Building Secrets", there is hardly anything secret or new to the folks reading the blog here. What I loved is how he laid it all out visually and spoke greatly about diversifying your linking efforts. Chad also covers some really solid social media marketing strategies that everyone needs...

12 Apr URL Shorteners Pass Link Juice

This question is asked a lot by our clients and I was glad to see Matt get it as a video topic. URL shorteners do pass link juice as long as they're 301 redirects. This makes perfect sense because Google is counting signals from the likes of Twitter and Facebook in their ranking algorithm. He specifically states Bit.ly and Goo.gl as two that work well, and as you can see we use Bit.ly here. I also recommend setting up your...

15 Mar Google Panda Q/A From SMX West

SMX West has just wrapped up, sadly we missed it and were stuck sitting here in the office working away. There are always a ton of awesome videos that come from the conference, and sadly not a lot of them get the exposure they should. I really enjoy slapping these on my mobile and watching them while I work out, or before falling asleep. But, generally speaking they're brilliant videos with industry leaders discussing the latest and greatest, and in...

I wish more people would watch this video because they have no idea the nightmare that is cleaning it all up. This video covers a whole spectrum of linking topics that will cause trouble, as well what to do to...

13 Mar Matt Cutts On NoFollow Links

Matt answers an interesting question from a webmaster in Thailand about only using nofollow links throughout his website. I can imagine how confusing this can get for some new webmaster's out there. What should I append nofollow too, how should I build my internal linking structure and is that going to be seen as a PageRank passing link? Hopefully some of you find this post informative and give new webmasters an idea of how to go about linking without fear...

02 Feb 5 Internet Marketing Youtube Users Worth Following

I've been posting a lot of great videos from the fine folks in this industry, and I thought I'd do a roundup post to let you all know of my favorites. I constantly download these videos and take them with me while I travel, but mostly watch before I go to bed at night. I'd like to pay back some of these content producers with some link love, as well as some publicity because they deserve it. Not everyone an...
