Search Engine Optimisation or Optimization
I have been getting some flack, in private emails and in public places about the lack of seo advice been given out in public places.
Well the reason why I stopped was all the fucking idiots that decide that because their 8 page website on some hardware shop in some backwater town selling gay pink hammers didn’t get a penalty for hiding text in a hidden div, or the fact that they only have forum – blog – guestbook links has IBL’s, then I must be wrong. To be honest I don’t care that much whether they believe me or not, It’s advice nothing more nothing less..
If I say buying links from here and other sites like that could get you banned for 18 months doesn’t mean that it will happen, just means it could happen, it’s called experience.
If you have every keyword under the sun linking to autogenerating pages you may get banned .. OH btw this I could be wrong but doing the following isn’t a sitemap ! even more so when all the links go back to the homepage
My rule of thumb is build a site for a user not a spider. Don’t link exchange, I know with links they’re hard to get these days. If you have to buy them, get them from someone you can trust; someone that if they said can I borrow your car you throw them the keys without thinking. Thats the person you need to buy your links from, not some guy that will get you 100 links at $2 each that can’t even speak your langauge.
Make your Titles User friendly whilst adding keywords, remember when people see your listings in the search engines, it’s better to have a call to action like:
I might post up the big onpage – offpage report later ..
