Best Tips for Creating Natural Backlinks

Posted by Extreme on , under | comments (9)



Best Tips & Strategies for Creating Natural Profile Backlinks
Follow the tips below the help keep your link profile as natural looking as possible.

1. Vary Your Anchor Text

Targeting one specific term and building links with exactly the same anchor text and description is never a good idea. Instead try to gain links that have varied versions of your preferred anchor text. For example, if your main term was “online college degrees” you might also target; ‘college degrees online’, ‘online colleges and degrees’ and even ‘degrees and colleges online’. Also get some links that are just straight URLs (and even images) as not every site would naturally link to you using anchor text or keywords.

2. Don’t Focus on Just Pages with High PageRank

Again, in the natural realm of things, not every site that links to yours would have high PR (or even any PR). Don’t be afraid to ask for, or spend your money, on backlinks from pages that are of good quality and indexed, but maybe don’t have oodles of PageRank. They’re not a waste of time if they’re helping to balance out your link profile.

3. Don’t Forget Your Inner Pages

Don’t focus your campaign solely on gaining links to the homepage. Choose important inner pages and get links to those too. By doing this you’ll be showing Google that your content is garnering interest.

4. Get All Different Types of Links

There are many different types of backlinks, with editorial style ones being the best. Definitely try to score these but don’t focus exclusively on any one type of link. Also strive to gain links from blogrolls/sidebars, resource type pages, quality directory listings, social media sites, sponsorships and awards etc. Basically anywhere it makes sense for your site to be listed or mentioned.



5. Keep the Link Velocity Slow and Steady

Unless your site has recently been mentioned on CNN or made the homepage of digg, be wary of the rate at which you are gaining your manual links. Just remember, it isn’t only the sheer number of links that matters in the long run but the quality of the sites linking to you.

As we expected that Google will update page rank i.e PR in April 2010 and today finally on 3 April 2010 Google rolled out Page rank for everyone.

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (3)



Google Search Malware Glitch
Google Mistakenly Labels The Internet as Malware.

Google, the leading search engine has hit a glitch, a very crippling glitch that at the time of this post is labeling every single website on the internet as malware. Twitter, blogs, forums and other online gathering spots are alive with talk of the Google glitch with search engine traffic from Google now non existent as the problem affects, every country, every OS and every browser.

How to Make Money with Google Knol using Adsense

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (3)



Knol is Google's new Wikipedia, where anyone can post their own articles (also known as knols).

Get Started:
To start making money, you need to create a knol. To do this you will need to sign in with your Gmail account or create a new one. Then you will need to register with adsense, which is google's ads publishing program. Now, once you have published a knol and adsense ads are enabled, relevant ads will appear next to your articles. When people read your articles and click on your ads, you will get paid for each click.

How much Money can I make?
It all depends on how many times your ads are clicked and what the topic of your article is. For example, if your article is about health insurance you'll get more money per click than an article about free wallpapers. So start writing articles about different topics, to see which can earn you the most money.

Free Traffic
If you take advantage of your articles, you'll find it possible to link to your own website or blog. Which can easily give you lots of quality traffic to your site.

What is a Googlebot?

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (0)



Googlebot
Well today I’m going to have an interview with Googlebot. We are going to talk about Googlebot. Let’s call Googlebot as he. He is a celebrity in the internet. All of the webmasters are expecting for Googlebot visitation. They pimp their website to give a good impression. And today,…I’m going to interview the most expected robot for my blogger manual… Please welcome….Googlebot!


Googlebot : Hi….hello everybody….

Me : Wow, thanks for your time…. How are you today?

Googlebot : Oh…I’m fine…thanks for asking

Me : And what is your activity presently?

Googlebot : Well, you know….I patrol all over the web to find a new webpage and decide the pagerank for the whole webpages. Do you have any webpages?

Me : Oh…yes! I’ll publish this interview on my blogger manual blog?

Googlebot : Oh,…may I know your URL….

Me : My URL is http://clubedu.blogspot.com . Do you know it?

Googlebot : Oh…sure…I have your URL in my directories. Unfortunatelly, I’ve just decreased the pagerank for your homepage?

Me : Hahahaha…never mind. After all, it’s my own fault…. Oh…I have some questions from my friends to ask you…. What can we do to get your pagerank?

Googlebot : Well, your question has gone too far. In fact, you should ask …how to make me visit your blog…first? Because, If I can’t see your blog…you won’t get any point in my result page.

Me : Oh yes, …..please tell me?

Googlebot : If you want me to visit your blog, you have to build a connection to the web in internet. Consider that I’m a spider…I won’t reach any place if there is no web connection to that place. How,…can you build that connection? Simple enough… You can ask another webmaster that has indexed page to create a backlink to your blog…. If I visit the page and I see the tunnel to your blog, I’ll visit your…. Or, you can simply ask for to be crawled at http://www.google.com/addurl . Your URL will be placed in my waiting list… and I’ll visit the webpage within days to 3 weeks….

Me : Oh…that’s why you found my blog even I did not make any registration. You found my blog through my inbound link…

Googlebot : That’s right

Me : Oh…my next question is…When you visit a webpage…what is your activity on that page?

Googlebot : Sure I’ll read all the webpage’s content, collect the keyword for my database, find any format that violate my Term of Service, and I look for tunnels/link that can lead me to other webpage.

Me: Oh, I just want to know….How can I make my article listed in your result page for a targeted keywords?

Googlebot : Easy…put your keywords in your title tag, meta keywords tag, meta descriptions tag, posted article’s title, your first twenty words in article…spread the keywords in your article, and close the article with your keyword. The first keyword in your article should be bolded. ….and the most important thing is the anchor text of your inbound link. What is anchor text? It’s the word that your link partners use to make a link to you. It sounds like a vote for your blog in my ear (If I have one)….

Me: Wow, is that enough to be listed in your result page?

Googlebot : Yes, but I can’t give you any guarantee that your page will be listed in the first page…. I think it will be enough if your targeted keywords is a low competition keywords. But if you target for a high competition keyword…you will be asked more….

Me: Oh…what is it?

Googlebot : I’ll ask for your link popularity, the number of your visitors, and I’ll consider the age of your webpage

Me: Oh,…that’s why people try to increase their pagerank and alexa rank….to compete for a high competition keywords….hmmm…. I see … I see… By the way, how to get a high pagerank….

Googlebot : Hahaha….easy you must have a lot of backlinks or high link popularity to achieve a high pagerank…. Do you?

Me: Hehehehe … I did some link exchange for that….

Googlebot : What?!!! I don’t like it. Link exchange is a method to manipulate your pagerank…. You should get your backlink by increase the quality of your contents….

Me : Oh, so you don’t like the method. Then why don’t you punish bloggers who use this method?

Googlebot : I can’t. It’s because I can’t feel the difference between link exchange and a normal reciprocal links. But you know....I don’t have to worry about anything. Reciprocal link has a lower value than a one-way backlink. It makes me can see the link to a high quality contents.

Me : Oh…I see… My next question is …”How to decide the pagerank that you will give to a page?”

Googlebot : Easy…consider it like this… I make a visitation to a page which have PR3, and the page has 70 links on it. One of those links is directed to your blog. How much poin you will have from a blog like this? Easy…your point is (3/70)*0,85= 0,036.
If your page is indexed but has no backlink, then your point is only 0,15.

Me: Hah….it’s to small….If I want to achieve PR3, then I must look for …. Hmmmm…. Let me count first… 3-0,15 = 2,85……then 2,85 : 0,036 = 80 links…. But, I found a blog which have over 100 links but their PR is 0. Is there something wrong with my calculation?

Googlebot : Hehehe….those +100 links is a reciprocal links, and that means I have to iterate the value until I get a steady state value. Which means the point will be decreased. It’s just like water which always looks for a flat surface.
After all….not all of your link partners have PR3…. Most of them has a lower PR….and don’t forget, most of them have blogs with over 100 links (The link exchanger)

Me: Oh….I see … that’s why most of the PR3 blogs in my country must have +200 backlinks to get the PR? Oh, before I forget,…Yesterday my friend with a PR3 blog found that his blog’s PR has been lowered to PR2….why?

Googlebot : Hmm….consider it like this… Your link partners had 70 links when you asked for a link exchange. But today he has 200 links on his page…. And that means the point that he pass to you is getting smaller and smaller. That’s why if you want to have a steady PR, your backlinks should be one way backlinks. If your backlinks come from link exchange activity, then you must always do the link exchange to keep or improve your pagerank…..

Me: When you will visit my blog again?

Googlebot: Well, it’s depent on your luck. If I found a blog with your link on it…I’ll come to your blog again…

Me: Hahaha….so there is a luck factor in this business….

Googlebot : Yup…. Oh…don’t forget…I have some limitation. I will get some troubles with a page that contains to many links… If your link is the #156 position,….probably I won’t see the link, or I will find your link, but after some visitations….hehe

Me : Oh…that’s not a good news for me….

Ok….it’s time to say goodbye,...hope you enjoy this blogger manual fantasy conversation. thanks for your visitation

SUMMARY OF SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION - BEST TIPS FOR SEO

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (0)



SUMMARY OF SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION (HOW TO GET A POTITION IN THE FIRST PAGE OF GOOGLE’S SEARCH RESULTS)
Search Engine Optimization is not an easy thing, and there is no guarantee that your efforts will bring a good result. I’m a beginner in this blogging world, but I think God helps me to understand about this stuff.

Before you start the whole process, I just want you to know that as a beginner you will need a lot of luck to win the competition. But the most important to make you win the competition is the knowledge. SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION is a combination of a lot activity. One single mistake can make the whole process worthless.

So, I’ll explain the whole process step by step.

#1 Step…Preparation
Consider it that you don’t have any blog, and you’re going to create your first blog. The first activity to be done is to choose your blog’s theme. What topic you are going to write in your blog? For example your topic is Home Based Business
Next activity is to create your blog in blogger.com. Make sure you use a template that has a left position main area. It means your article will be shown on the left side and the gadgets on the right side. Why? It’s because the spider crawls from the top-left side to the bottom-right side. Make sure the spider find your article before your gadgets? Why??? It’s all about your keywords.
Next,….create your article. Each time you want to create an article, you must do some keywords research. For example, your article will talk about Affiliate Program. Open the GOOGLE EXTERNAL KEYWORDS TOOL. Type AFFILIATE PROGRAM in the keywords box. Enter the anti-spam code and click on GET KEYWORDS SUGGESTION button. Wait for the result, you will see a list of keywords with their data. Try to choose a low competition keywords. You can find a keywords with nearly empty competition bar. But, make sure you choose a keywords that has a good search volume. Now, write your article and spread the keywords in your article. You don’t need to repeat the keywords more than four times, but make sure that your article’s title contains the keyword.

OK, you already have your first blog

#2 Step…On-Page Optimization
Now it’s time to optimize your webpage. It’s needed to make the spider feels happy when it visits your blog. We give the information that spider needs to classify your blog in its index.
Put the title and meta tag in your blog’s HTML. How to put the meta tag and title tag? Just read my META TAG AND TITLE TAG article. It is very important factor in search engine optimization…
Make sure that your blog’s title and your article’s title contain the keywords
It’s good to use label for your article. You can add labels on your article when you create the article. Make sure that the label contains your keywords.
If you want to create another article that is not related to your blog topic. It’s better for you to create another blog. Remember, one Google Account can be used to create many blogs. Just click on create blog link on the top right side of your dashboard. If you try to blend another topic in to your blog, It will hurt the relevancy of your blog to its basic pattern. Since I joined a paid review program, I try my best to keep my blog on its basic form.
Put the keywords in your Widget’s Title and if you use image, please use ALT attribute in its HTML. The ALT attribute must contains the keywords.

So, if you do this, The spider will love your blog and can find the main color of your blog easily.

#3 STEP….OFF-PAGE OPTIMIZATION
Even if your blog is beautiful as miss universe, it will bring nothing if spider can’t find it. Do you know what I mean? So the last process is to make the spider can easily find your blog.
Do you ever think, why we named the robot as spider? Coz it crawl from a website to other website. It can’t arrive to a website if there is no web connects the website. The web connection is the link on the other webpage. So, we are going to build a lot of links that directed to your blog
You can build link by doing some link exchange, or pay for a PPC advertisement, or posting your link in a forum, bookmarks services, and other webpage

Hahahaha….it will need a lot of backlinks to get PR3 above for your blog. You can open a PR 3 above blog and count the number of backlinks. If you can create those backlinks, I guarantee that your PR will be lifted up.

Is that all?…well, I have my last suggestion for you, before your blog listed in Google, you can promote your blog manually by inviting others bloggers to visit your blog.

I did this and one of my four months old blog is being listed in Google first page for 34 keywords…. If you are a new blogger, just enjoy the process coz it will take one month to see some results.

How to Fix Custom Favicons for Blogger Blogs

Posted by Winner on , under | comments (0)



Fixing Custom Favicons for Blogger Blogs

Favicons A-Z by Dave TaylorMany Blogger users have reported that their custom favicon has suddenly been replaced with the default orange Blogger favicon.



The reason for this is that the 'all-head-content' includable (the content generated for page headers when your blog is viewed in a browser) has been updated to include the following line:



<link href='http://www.blogger.com/favicon.ico' rel='icon' type='image/vnd.microsoft.icon'/>


Thankfully, there is an easy "fix" for this issue!



Simply locate the line(s) of code you have added to your Blogger template to reference your custom Favicon, and move these just before the closing </head> tag in your template.



The reason this trick works is because the code to reference your custom favicon appears after the lines added by Blogger to reference the Blogger favicon. In all HTML documents, code which appears later in the mark-up takes precedence over any tags which appear earlier (unless of course, statements are attached to make the earlier tags preferential!).




Favicons and Internet Explorer

When using Internet Explorer 6, you will only see favicons appear in the address bar if you have bookmarked the site you are viewing.



The tern "favicon" is  short for "favorite icon", and as such Internet Explorer will only display the favicon of a site if the site is recognized as one of your favorites (ie: if you have bookmarked the site in your browser!).



Some people also report that the favicon will only display when viewing the particular page they have bookmarked, and not the entire site. In this case, you would need to restart your browser for the favicon to appear in the address bar of all pages.



Your internet security settings (both in Internet Explorer and any anti-virus/anti-spyware programs you use) may also affect whether or not favicons will be displayed in IE6.



Were you able to fix your broken favicon?



I hope this post has provided a useful overview of how to fix the link to your custom favicon in your Blogger blog.

How Does Google Treat Duplicate Content & What are the Penalties??

Posted by Extreme on , under | comments (0)



How does Google see duplicate Content? Is there a Penalty?
Many webmasters are anxious to know the number of people who trust the rumor that Google will penalize your site for sharing content belonging to some other site.

It seems to be doing the rounds and for quite a while now, though little of it seems to be true.

Inspite of Google declaring that there was no such thing as a content duplication penalty, web surfers still believe it to be so. One has to realize that if the mighty ‘Google’ makes a statement, it surely must be true.

As far as people’s ignorance and misunderstandings are concerned, take a look at the image below. I found it at a website of an affiliate marketer trying to sell a product which promises SEO miracles. lol.


Coming back to the topic, in the case of duplicate content, the results are filtered from the search engines. However, it is indexed, so you just have to click once again to see what’s there.

This sure is capable of raising doubts, but it is necessary to keep in mind that a penalty for content duplication is just a piece of fiction.

If there are 2 sites having same content, Google will discharge one of the pages from its index, but the site does not receive a penalty. The page is dropped because it has previously been indexed on another site. However, if the site totally contains only duplicate content, then it may receive a penalty.


An example could be a blog which was noticed a while back – it had nothing but duplicate content. It possessed a type of script setup to take Rss feeds from sites like yahoo and convert them into its own pages. The owner had about 200,000 pages of copied content indexed with Google. However, this was shortlived as Google detected the site and scrapped it from the index. This actually meant that Google banned the site. All the pages was removed from Google’s index, and even a search for the domain name didn’t return anything.

It has been observed that many a time, someone might purchase a database with 1,000 articles on it and use it to start their site, but such a database has been used so often that Google will not index the newer sites.

DoFollow: Best Way of Link Building

Posted by Extreme on , under | comments (6)



Till now we have learnt different types of Submission Process, Optimization tactics, How to monetize the Traffic, Keyword research and many more. Now we are going to learn how to achieve an effective result by making best use of all these tactics. First of all we have to take a decision regarding selection of a web browser which can prove helpful for undertaking various SEO process. Hope Mozilla fire fox is one of the best available web browsers which provide all the necessary plug-in to undertake the process as an ease. Today I am going to talk about one such plug-in which will prove helpful to bifurcate between do follow link and No do follow link. Hope many of them will be already well-known with such attribute but some might be there who have just entered the field and are unknown about it then for them I will explain it in details what is meant by Do follow link and No do follow link and how they plays an important role in optimization process.

When you have a link on a certain page (an inbound link or a link that points to your own site) that is designed to accommodate do follow links (i.e. no do follow attribute has been dis activated), that page contributes for your site reputation in the eyes of search engines. In other words, you will benefit also when search engines find your page linked to other site which is considered to be reputable. That page gives value to your page through the do follow link you have. In nullshet do follow link passes the link juice while no do follow doesn't passes any such link juice. So, now the question arise how to determine whether a link is a do follow or no do follow?

To tell the spiders to crawl a link, you don’t have to do anything. Simply using the normal format of href can do, the search engine spiders will crawl the link provided. To tell the spiders to NOT crawl a link, you need to add the following code to the HTML code above:
rel="nofollow"

It would then look like:

Search Engine Optimization

Basically, there is no true “do follow”, it is just NOT using the “nofollow” tag. Too simple

To determine do follow links is quite simple. All you need to know is to scan through the source code of the page you are trying to check (right click on the page and then go to 'page source') alternatively, you can also find the source code on the 'view' menu. If you find 'no follow' as mentioned above then, it's obvious that page is programmed to have 'no follow' links. That means, that page does not contribute for your site reputation whenever a certain reader of that page clicks the link pointing to your site. Now, you might be asking now if there is other way to check it because it is quite time consuming to check if the page has multiple links. Yes there is. The idea I discussed above is ideally applicable on pages having just a number of links. But, if you are to check multiple links (let us say, what if the page has 50 links and you need to check all of them?). There is a better way to check multiple links (quick and easy) and that is by using the Fire fox 'No Do Follow' plug-in. So, check your Fire fox browser if the plug-in is already installed. If not, you can download it from here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5687
All you need to do during checking using this tool is to go to the page you want to check, right-click on it and enable the 'No Do Follow' option. When done, links on pages are highlighted by two possible color which determine whether the links are do follow or not (highlighted in blue are do follow links; no follow, otherwise). As every one of us know that Our big brother Google considers inbound link as one of the factor to determine page rank and it is clear from these discussion that only do follow link will contribute to pass some link juice So instead of concentrating on each types of link Concentrating on do follow link can benefit you in terms of Good Page rank.

People Shaping the Way We Look Internet and Technology Today

Posted by Extreme on , under | comments (2)



Top 15 People Who Changed the Internet
These are personalities that pioneered some of the most popular and widely used properties on the web.

The list mostly cited people who owns the top internet companies today which includes:

1. Larry Page and Sergey Brin (Google Inc.)
2. Sir Tim Berners-Lee (Created World Wide Web)
3. Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook)
4. Shawn Fanning (Napster, Rupture)
5. Kevin Rose (Digg, Revision3, Pownce)
6. Matt Mullenweg (WordPress, Automattic)
7. Bram Cohen (BitTorrent)
8. Pierre Omidyar (eBay, Omidyar Networks)
9. Mike Morhaime (Blizzard Entertainment – World of Warcraft)
10. Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia)
11. Craig Newmark (Craigslist)
12. Chad Hurley and Steve Chen (YouTube)
13. David Filo and Jerry Yang (Yahoo! Inc)
14. Jack Ma (Alibaba)
15. Jeff Preston Bezos (Amazon)

While I do not completely agree with the top 15 in the list, I think several other people deserve a spot in there:

Bill Gates (Microsoft) – mainly because of Internet Explorer. Let’s admit it, if it were not for the IE browser, we would still be paying for Netscape Navigator until today.
Steve Jobs (Apple) – though Apple is mostly a software/hardware company, iTunes proved that selling digital music online can be bigger than CD singles.
Jarkko Oikarinen (IRC) – he invented the Internet Relay Chat Protocol, a service that’s basically a Web 1.0 epitome of MySpace/Friendster/Facebook + Napster in the 90s.

Who else do you think deserves to be in the list?

Google Pagerank Update Prediction For 2010

Posted by Extreme on , under | comments (7)



Google PR Update Prediction For 2010
By now, most of us already know that Google page rank (PR) update takes place every 3-4 months once. I am not a big fan of page rank but it is still a good measurement to calculate number of quality backlink a site or page received. Pagerank is still one of the measurement factor in setting advertising value for a website or blog. Most advertisers still prefer to get a dofollow backlink from high PR relevant quality sites. Although, Google don’t allow us to sell or buy links with dofollow which may lead to penalties, there are still many bloggers and webmasters sells links that passes PR juice. Most advertisers believe that nofollow tag added link have no value at all.

Anyway, it is truly depend on the advertiser and webmaster to sell or buy dofollow links. Penalties from Google can lead to pagerank drop or pagerank removal completely regardless of 3-4 months period. It won’t take 3 or 4 months for Google to give penalty to site. This means page rank update will take place for 3 to 4 times a year. If your site drops in pagerank not during the major pagerank update means your site might get some sort of Google penalty. Let’s talk about the history of pagerank prediction. For last two years, Google updated pagerank widely to most website and blogs online just before New Year.

I have noticed that twice, once by end of 2008 and the other end of 2009. So, my guess will be the same for 2010 too. I have seen four updates taken place in year 2008 and 2009. I assume there will be four updates in 2010 too. Since, last update done before New Year that is 31st December 2009, next pagerank update most probably will take place by 31st March 2010. If Google follow that 4 months once update, then the next pagerank update will take place by 30th April 2010. The reading of following pagerank update will be adding another 90 to 120 days from March or April 2010. The same cycle goes for every pagerank update. Below is the next page rank update prediction for year 2010.

First Page Rank Update: 31st February/March 2010 – 30th April 2010

Second Page Rank Update: 30th June 2010 – 31st July 2010

Third Page Rank Update: 30th September 2010 – 31st October 2010

Fourth Page Rank Update: 31st December 2010

Google PageRank Update 2010: Last and Next

What is Google PageRank Update i.e Google PR Update?
Google PageRank update as the name suggests means updation of your PageRank by Google i.e updating your website's old PageRank and assigning your website a new Google PageRank.Though the update of PR does not have significant effect on Google rankings but still people anxiously wait for the update.


Google PageRank Update 2009 - 2010:Last and Next
January 2010 saw an update to Google’s page rank algorithm on 31 December 2009 and as such some sites have noticed either a positive or negative change to their own page rank. Page Rank has been around longer than Google has been a household name, with updates on the algorithm made on an in-frequent basis. It seems that over time the functionality has changed a fair bit, but the original formula still very much applies when it comes to determining new ranking after an update.

That full page rank algorithm was created by Larry Page at Stanford and is as follows:
PR = 0.15 + 0.85 ( PR(Backlink 1)/TotalLinks(Backlink 1) + PR(Backlink 2)/TotalLinks(Backlink 2) + … + PR(Backlink X)/TotalLinks(Backlink X) )

Most website owners and SEO programmer know that you want high PR pages to improve site authority and from there a site traffic increase should follow. Google prides itself on an ever changing and highly adaptable model, designed to improve and advance the performance of its search algorithm and ultimately the user experience. The majority of changes to the Page Rank algorithm are tweak and nips, but sadly Google don’t release the specifics, so effectively navigating this new update is a process of educated trial and error.
However, what we feel is that with Google Caffeine and the latest update is there more focus on relevant / up to date content, so if you don’t have a blog on your site and trying to get rankings you are sadly behind the times.
Search Engine Optimisation is not an exact science and this months’ page rank update is just as mysterious as the last. What is clear is that Google releases algorithm updates based on data collated and user feedback, so ultimately Google should have everyone’s best interests at heart.


Google Last PageRank Update
Last Google PageRank update was done on New Years Eve of 2010.Some relatively new websites have achieved much higher rank after this update.The next PageRank update will be scheduled by Google somewhere between February-March-April period,as update is displayed for public viewing every 4 months by Google but Google also has a habit of displaying fresh PageRank on or around New Year.In case of any early updates by Google ,readers will be notified.


Why Google doesn't Update my Website's PageRank?
It is generally a misconception that Google does not update your PageRank. You might still see the same PageRank which you have been initially assigned by Google but that does not mean that Google is not updating your PageRank. Your PageRank update is currently being processed at the Google data centers while you are reading this article.But it will be displayed only after four months for public viewing .Actually Google updates your PageRank everyday depending on the popularity of your site i.e. the number of high quality incoming links you get,yes,
PageRank is updated everyday at Google but it is only displayed quarterly for public viewing.

So, in the mean time, try to get more incoming links,so that you improve your Google PageRank.If you want the next PageRank update to bring happy news for you then try and get more incoming links before the next update is scheduled for public display.

Keyword Research Strategy - How to Research Your Keyword Using Tools

Posted by Extreme on , under | comments (2)



How to Research Your Keyword Context
Keyword research posts are numerous, however it is seldom brought to attention that it is not enough to just determine keyword phrases that people use to search for your topic. What else should be researched is your core term environment. What do I mean by that?

Words cannot be viewed in isolation. Words are only single units that build sentences and phrases. By looking at word units and phrases in isolation, we miss a huge part of the whole picture. How can keyword context be helpful?

*Explore neighboring terms (get a deeper understanding of the niche);
*Make your writing richer and more varied (and thus end up targeting more words);
*See the words in live context (create timely content that will be interesting to people, “speak the language of your audience”).
Let’s have a look at a few tools you can use to figure your core term context.

Research the SERPs context:
SenSebot offers a semantic analysis of Google SERP and creates a summary of it as well as its tag cloud. It also works for Google news.

Search Cloudlet is a FireFox addon that extracts words from search snippets and creates a tag cloud containing most frequent terms on each SERP. With it you will be able to see most common words that neighbor your search term in search results. If you set Google to return 100 results per page, you’ll give the tool more data to analyze and thus get more accurate tag cloud.

Urban dictionary is another user-generated site where you can find related tags for any term. It is especially useful if you need to research relaxed, slang environment.


Google sets tool lists related terms for the set of words you provide. It is essential to keep in mind what is meant by “related” here. Google sets’ technology is primarily about analyzing web lists: words that often appear within or tags or in comma-separated lists should be related. This can be applied to countries or colors, for example.
Naturally, each further word in the set influences the results returned (thus, red / green (colors) and red / green / spring (nature, seasons, joy) sets are completely different).

You can also use Twitter-based search tools - my favorite one is TwitScoop. It shows recent discussions and also graphically represents the term popularity:

How and When does Backlinks Take Effect?

Posted by Extreme on , under | comments (10)



Different Search Engines follow their own approach on how to assign value to a particular backlink. The values could be based on the quality of the backlink website as well as the competition. As soon as Google Bots detects & assign values to your backlink, you can see the changes in the SERPs results. Older backlinks do carry a more weight than the newer ones. To find out whether a link is counted, the first place to check is the Google-cache. In SEO, it's believed that good, quality links can affects the SERPs within 48 hours. Backlinks from High PR pages carry a lot more weight than the pages with lower values. Thus, Backlinks play an important role for higher search engine rankings.



Also, Link Operator i.e link:www.domainname.com of Google is not fully reliable. Do check with an external link popularity services such as: http://www.iwebtool.com/backlink_checker

Why Did Google Unindexed My Website

Posted by Extreme on , under | comments (5)



Google Special Report: Google's Unindexed URLs
Google's Unindexed URLs: An Example
This page gives an example of Google's unindexed Web pages and how they look in the results list. As of Dec. 2001, Google says that about 500 million of its 2 billion records are unindexed Web documents. These are URLs for Web pages (or for other file types such as PDF or PowerPoint files) which Google has not crawled and indexed. The screen shot below is an example from March 7, 2002.









Why did Google punish my website?
How to Identify
The unindexed URLs are easy to spot when the occasionally appear in Google's results. They have all the following characteristics:

No extract
No page size
And no cached copy of the page
If they are just missing the extract and/or the cached copy, they have probably been indexed. Only the ones missing all three have not been fully indexed.

Types of Orphans
So what are these orphans of Google? They may be any of the following kinds of pages.

dead links
inaccurate links
duplicates
pages protected by a robots.txt or noindex meta tag
database generated URLs
pages on an intranet
links Google's spider just never got to
What is Indexed?
These orphans are not completely unindexed. Unlike the bulk of the records in Google, the text of the pages themselves has not been indexed. But there are a few ways in which they are indexed and from which then can be pulled up.

Words in the URL, like 'gourdeaud' in the image
Words in the anchor text on other pages that link to the orphan URL
