    This is a great article that I’m going to save and refer to when trying to explain to clients that SEO is a long term project and not just a set-and-forget type of job. Oh, and you’re a WWE fan? Me too! I’m going to follow you immediately. I look forward to your live tweets

    Definitely agree that removing links is becoming far more popular than building them, we just need a good backlink removal tool.  I’m still not sure how Google is going to combat negative SEO when it is penalizing sites for bad linking practices.

    “What Hasn’t Google Done” is a great question.

    For me it is still sitting here waiting for Google Analytics for Google+ to roll out after waiting on the SOON promise since Nov, 12th, 2011 when Pages for biz went live.

    What do you think about quantity of links in a period of time? Doing manual link building takes a lot of time and effort in order find high authority, high quality links. All the changes from Penguin has made me wary of building too many links in a period of time, for a single targeted phrase. I like how you stated the fact that targeting different phrases can be effective. I found this to be very true. It seems to be more effective to build links on a range of phrases and pages over the course of each month. It may take much longer than some “paid link” methods but in the long run, benefits outweigh the costs. When I think of “white hat” link building, I almost get paranoid that Google could at any time devalue a site or just a page for reasons I don’t even know about. Would Google devalue a direct anchor text link when it comes from a related, high authority site? I would like to think that Google would value that links information because the direct anchor text on a link tells Google (simply put) “this site relates to my site, here is the targeted terms that point to a page on my website that has the related content.” The Google show is picking up the pace of the game in 2012. It seems the link builder can only watch (with googly eyes), try to keep up and make sure more time and effort is spent finding quality links.

    finally somebody I can agree with :)

    Panda is about deleting pages out of google’s index, penguin is about your total link profile

    but to put it even shorter; cheap tricks don’t work anymore, that’s all, good quality still does the trick just fine!

    cheers,

    I have a customer doing great in search but he has a bunch of links coming in from some directory in Russia. I am talking hundreds. He never bought these links and I never bought these  links. These links could be from a competitor trying to sink us! If Google is going to penalize sites for low quality links – it could create a whole new form of “negative” link building.

    Google tells us not to over-optimize, yet they over-optimize their search engine. I’m not sure anymore if they are improving, or simply fixing something that ain’t broken. 

    Small business owners that are ignorant about SEO are going to get penalized because they can’t afford to hire an SEO?? I really think it’s unfair, although it might be a good thing for SEO companies.

    Great article… ”
    It’s almost too much to keep up with. In fact, if I could have a super power, I’d want it to be the ability to stop time like Zack Morris did with his signature ‘Timeout!’ move”. I couldn’t agree more. 

  • http://twitter.com/katehuebler Kate Huebler

    I don’t know if it’s necessarily good for SEO companies. Maybe it makes us more needed, but it’s also a ton to keep up with.
