How Google Panda 3.3 has effected SEO…blogs de-indexed by Google

How Google Panda 3.3 has effected SEO ?

The last couple of weeks I’ve been blogging quite heavily on social media which I’m a big believer in. Why am I such a big believer you may ask? Well the answer for me is the simple fact that social media is relatively cheap and easy to implement in order to get a large amount of traffic to your website. Not just that, it’s great for your brand awareness and reputation management. However in the last week it’s become even more apparent why social media is becoming increasingly more important as part of your marketing strategy.

You see what has happened in the last week has been massive in the search engine optimization world which is what I wanted to talk about today. Google has made some massive changes to its algorithm via Panda 3.3 and now has started penalizing websites for having spammy or unnatural back links. There always use to be a hot debate on whether you got penalized for having unnatural or spammy back links to your website. The argument being “well if you got penalized for having certain back links, then you could easily build back links to your competitor websites and get them banned.” Well this almost looks like this is the case. If you relied on SEO as your primary source of bringing traffic to your website, then you would be stuffed. That’s why you need to focus some of your efforts into social media marketing.

Google Panda

Most of the SEO specialists I’ve spoken to and confirmed with have also suggested that Google are now penalizing sites for bad back links. Having a look around the Internet, more and more people are getting the following message from Google in their webmaster tools account:

We’ve detected that some of your site’s pages may be using techniques that are outside Google’s Webmaster Guidelines.

Specifically, look for possibly artificial or unnatural links pointing to your site that could be intended to manipulate PageRank. Examples of unnatural linking could include buying links to pass PageRank or participating in link schemes.

We encourage you to make changes to your site so that it meets our quality guidelines. Once you’ve made these changes, please submit your site for reconsideration in Google’s search results.

If you find unnatural links to your site that you are unable to control or remove, please provide the details in your reconsideration request.

If you have any questions about how to resolve this issue, please see our Webmaster Help Forum for support.

Sincerely,

Google Search Quality Team

Wow!! Moreover in the last week, one of the biggest paid blog networks out there has had all their blogs de-indexed by Google. They have now shut down. The network – Build My Rank. This network is one of the strictest blog networks out there when it came to submitting content with your back links in them. It had to be unique content or well spun content (not poorly spun content that was not human readable) with no grammar and spelling mistakes. Build My Rank did not want to leave any footprint for Google to catch them out. Unfortunately they did.

Now Google are after Authority Link Network as well having de-indexed thousands of blogs in that network. I believe it won’t be long before Google de-indexes all the blogs in ALN. So the big G are cracking down hard on people trying to game the system. This now begs the question is SEO dead? Will it still be viable in 6 months time? I still believe there is a place for SEO but it’s definitely now becoming harder to rank websites higher. So below I’ve listed some of my tips on getting your website to the top of Google:

  1. Create quality content – I’ve mentioned this many a time and it will never change. Content is king. Produce quality content that helps users and create it regularly! Keep your site content fresh with new content added continuously.
  2. Get natural back links – linked in to my point above, by creating quality content other websites will naturally link to your website.
  3. Social media – you need social proof for your website period. Once again linked in to point 1, create content that creates a buzz. Get people tweeting your content, liking it on Facebook, sharing on Google+ or pinning it on Pinterest. Google are using social signals more and more to determine the value and rankings of websites.
  4. Link diversity – get a variety of links from different sources such as article submissions, social bookmarking, wiki submissions, press releases, RSS feeds, forum profiles etc. The more your link profile is diverse, the better it is in Google’s eyes. Do not put all your back links in one basket. For example, imagine your only source of back links was from Build My Rank and you got hit by Google, compared with someone who also had Build My Rank back links but also had back links from a multitude of other sources. The latter will still be fine.
  5. Guest posts- always great to write posts for others and also get them to write posts for you. Guest blogging is great also for your brand awareness.
  6. Anchor text diversity – don’t create links to your website all using the same anchor text which is your keyword. This looks so unnatural. Mix it up – use different keywords and variations of keywords. Include anchor text keywords such as “click here” and “here”.
  7. Use a fast and reliable website hosting company – Google looks at page load times and bounce rates as metrics in ranking your website. So make sure your website is quick upon loading and you direct your website visitors as soon as they view your web page. If you use wordpress, you can use a caching plugin to improve the loading speed of your website.

If you stick to the above tips, you will be fine. Also your website visitors will also be happy because they’re getting great and useful content. This keeps the big G happy.

YouTube includes NFTs and Web3 in new creator tools – Metaverse

NFTs and Web3 Updates Google LLC-owned video-sharing giant YouTube said Thursday it's considering web3 technologies such as nonfungible tokens and blockchain to help enhance the relationships between creators and their fans and develop new experiences. How Do NFTs and Web3 Work? "Web3 opens up new opportunities for creators," Neal Mohan, chief product officer at YouTube, said in a blog post. "We believe new technologies like blockchain and NFTs can allow creators to build deeper relationships with their fans. Together, they'll be able to collaborate on new projects and make money in ways not previously possible." An NFT is a type of blockchain asset that can represent a virtual item such as artwork, music, video, or even a ticket. What makes NFTs worthwhile is that they are unique and can be bought, sold, and traded. As a result, YouTube creators could use them to produce additional revenue streams related to their YouTube videos, turn their videos themselves into NFTs, and sell them to their fans to create deeper relationships. The company didn't clarify whether NFT ownership would conflict with copyright law. Buying an NFT establishes ownership of a specific digital asset and provides a public record of each transaction involving the asset. It doesn't transfer copyright from the original owner to the buyer. What can one expect? YouTube will add features that mirror competing platforms like NFTS and Web3. It will monetize Shorts, the short-form video platform similar to TikTok and Instagram Reels. For example, creators will reply to comments with short videos, a feature widely used on TikTok to engage with viewers directly. In addition, YouTube is adding live streaming features, further competing with Twitch. The company will launch collaborative live streaming so creators can go live together. The platform is also testing giving paid memberships as gifts. Let the Metaverse wars continue....

8006Frozen Theatre Chicago Review

Frozen Theatre Chicago Review

The glitz, the glamor, and the icicles are back! Disney’s “Frozen,” the Broadway hit musical, has returned to the Cadillac Palace Theatre for a limited ten-week engagement. Highly Recommend as we follow the lives of Elsa and Anna, who are heirs to the throne, with Elsa having a peculiar gift: the ability to create a frozen world of sparkling crystal. Many know how Disney’s Frozen took the box office by storm, and it’s clear sitting in the theater that audience members of all ages are excited to see the piece come to life. From kids, all dressed up and parents singing along. If you are a Disney fan, this musical was made for you. The Tony-nominated musical adaptation of the hit movie follows Elsa (Caroline Bowman) as she navigates, hiding her magical ice powers amid her coronation. When things go astray and her mystical magic is revealed, she runs off into the mountains to keep everyone safe – or so she thinks. With Arendelle suddenly under snow and the threat of permanent winter, her younger sister Anna (Marina Konodo) sets out to find Elsa to save their kingdom. This is where the story unfolds. Also in this musical are other favorite characters from the film: Kristoff (Mason Reeves), Olaf (F. Michael Haynie), Hans (Austin Colby), and of course, Sven (a combination of puppetry and acrobatic talents portrayed by Evan Strand and Colin Baja). This alone makes the magical experience full circle. Frozen is full of joy, and the eye-popping scenic design touches elicit uproars of laughter and applause. Standout performances and jaw-dropping special effects full of magic and flare make Disney’s Frozen a night to remember. Now, For the critical part, some songs needed a bit more clarity from the characters as a few of their pitches were off, but this is what makes live theatre awesome. Secondly, for all its glitz and girl power, l thought this magical show lacked some of the (human connect) warm connection found between Actors in other Disney musicals for the stage production. Overall, This is especially a top pick for those who first experienced this story as the original Disney film. Rating: 3.5 out of 4 Runtime: 2 hours and 15 minutes, with one intermission. Tickets range from $33 – $179, plus a select number of premium tickets are available. Buy Tickets: https://www.broadwayinchicago.com/show/disneys-frozen/ Tridence Supports the Arts....
