Marketing Sweet Spot: Quality Articles and Popular Blogs

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Beginning early this year, google made some changes to their search ranking,   in the name of providing more relevant search results for it’s users, on official google blog it is estimated 11.8% search results will be affected by this update, in plain English, google thinks about 12% of it’s search results are really bad and need to manipulated. They planned and started the update about one year ago, maybe that’s why some of my ranks dropped out of first 10 pages, but almost all the ranks promoted by articles and blog posts were not affected, some of the keywords even ranked better than before, it’s almost a sure thing that plain link building loses all it’s attraction, at least in the eye of google.

What is old way of link building any way? There are a lot of SEO company out there are doing this, they will get links from any websites which accept adding links, the content on those sites will never be updated, almost all of them are garbage, the name of link spamming sites is justified. The latest google update will definitely downgrade most if not all of these sites, any links on them will be affected too. 

A few real world examples will help to explain what I said. It was quite some time ago, I started promote the keyword, Dog Park Play Cables, of course with old way of link building, almost all the sites I got link from 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. Now let’s look at another keyword, chain pullers, most back links for this keyword are from articles and posts, almost no plain links, you can imagine how this keyword ranks. So contextual link wins this time, what about future? Actually this is all about content, when you create unique and quality content, not only people will love to read your stuff, so do the search engines. You probably think there are already too many blogs out there, it’s not true, there will never be too many good blogs, take a look at this blog, fathers day gift , I didn’t put too much effort into it from start, but I never stopped posting, and to my surprise, I have high ranks for some of  competitive keywords. As far as SEO concerned, quality blog marketing is much better than plain link building. If you can build a group of your own blogs, such as You Need These Chains for Tough Job, then it will be easier to do article marketing.

Remember content is king, you just need to create content, share the content with people, and put your keywords in the context you’re good to go, 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, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, keep doing what we have to do till the end of world. Ezine is one of the best article directories out there, new article will be indexed within an hour if not minutes, popular blogs will get your post indexed as soon as you post it, I believe you should see for yourself, Colorful Cords with Low Price, explains some interesting concepts, nice writing, good content, published on popular site, this article serves it’s purpose well.

By the way, if you don’t take social media account, you’re lost. The Twitter tools is a wordpress plugin, you can install it, then go ahead register a new twitter account and app, set up API credentials in your twitter tools option, then make sure every new post will post a new tweet, it’s real easy and useful, no one should miss this tool out.
