Good Content and Spam

Post by GiadaFrontPage » Wed Jan 04, 2012 10:12 am

Hi, guys! I know I'm probably posting in the wrong forum (didn't find a forum for introductions), so I thought I'd strike up a discussion while simultaneously introducing myself....if that's alright, of course. ;) Originally, I came on here to learn more about the HTML Validator, but found this intriguing section. I don't know TOO much about SEO aside from the fact that it's used to promote websites to the first page of SERPs and increase traffic to one's site. One such technique is link building, but there seem to be a lot of grey areas. What's considered GOOD linkbuilding and what's considered spam? I'm a lil' confused. ;-;

Either way, I'm SUPER glad to be on here. Hope to meet everyone soon! :)

Well guest posting on topic related blogs is considered good by most link builders. Then creating viral content that attracts attention can get you links, but that is the hardest thing to do since you need to have a catchy headline and great content.

Ignore most of what was written before the launch of the Panda and Penguin changes in the Google algorithm.
As a starter - seriously think about building good original content and developing a means of easily/quickly adding to that content - probably a blog on your own site.

Spammy linkbuilding can be involving in link networks, spinning content and adding links, basically if it doesn't look natural then it can be considered spam! ;)

One of the most promising ways to build backlinks to a website, naturally ofcourse is to install a blog under your domain. Populate it with appealing Title and fill it up with highly unique and informative content. Make sure that the content is useful to your audience, leave the rest to these visitors. Soon you'd start realizing its effect in the analytics software. Such an article is usually liked, shared and linked back by visitors, hence helping you get an advantage from an SEO standpoint.

Next is, you identify blog similar to your niche and check if they accept guest posts. This is a good and ethical way of link-building, where it is a win-win situation, you build content for the blog while the blog owner would give you a couple of backlinks to your page/s.

Spammy content means stuffing of keywords in a page or for a blog post to rank page for better search engine results. But this is violation in the Google polices and not advised at all.

Good link building should be social media bookmarking, facebook, twitter, google plus, reddit, stumbleupon, delicious, guest blogging, forums link building too.

What do you mean by social media bookmarking? I don't think Google + is going to bring you anything at all - there is a reason why its creator has been fired.

Yes I think you should focus on quality of links. Try getting back-links from relevant websites . Also you can check website power at sites like checkpagerank.net. Avoid links from Spam directories or classified websites. Try and focus more on quality guest blogging and commenting.
