Overcoming Google's Filter for New Websites

Have you noticed that it is easer to get ranked higher on Google with older websites than it is with new websites? Have you ever wondered why is this so and what does it take for you to do to get a high ranking if you have a new website?

Why is it easier to get high rankings with older websites?

Spammers oftenly use brand new domain names to make a quick profit. Spammers often buy hundreds of domains at once and fill them with crap or scraper content and hoping to make a profit with the advertisements that appears on the sites (usually spammers use AdSense to put ads on these kind of sites). Black-hat webmasters also sometimes use new domains to test for new search engines exploit (mainly on spamming techniques)

It is obviously difficult for Google to know which sites (or domains) can be trusted and this is why Google had invented a filter system which down-ranks new websites until Google decides they can be trusted.

A Secret Way Of Getting Traffic07.19.14

Submitting to Online Directories

If you are reading this article, more likely than not you own a website that you would like to see be a success. To achieve that level, you need traffic to your site. But where does traffic come from?

One of the better ways to get traffic for your site is to submit your site to the many directoriesthat exist online. Online directories are similar to your phone book yellow pages: These directories are categorized (education, entertainment, health, etc.), and when you submit your website, you suggest a category for your website. Often, you will even be able to submit to a sub-category within a major category. For example, suppose your website is about aromatherapy.

In your submission request, you would suggest "Health" as your main category, "Alternative Medicine" as your sub-category, and "Aromatherapy" as a further sub-category.

Some of the leading online directories are Yahoo!, MSN Small Business, and the DMOZ directory. Unlike search engines, however, listings in online directories are usually not free. As of this writing, you can submit for free to the Yahoo! Directory (http://dir.yahoo.com), but there is not guarantee on how quickly your website will be reviewed for listing. If you need your site reviewed faster, you can pay Yahoo! $299 US for "expedited" service and they will review your site within seven days. However, this fee is a yearly recurring fee. Your website is subject to a yearly review, and is guaranteed neither initial inclusion or to remain listed year after year.

Social Interaction and Links07.12.14

Where to Get Links

  • Create content or ideas which important people can identify with and would likely link at.
  • Directories may link to sites you submit.
  • You can exchange links with similar web sites. If you can afford to, it is better to create legitimate business partnerships and friendships rather than just exchange links with whoever is willing.
  • Writing articles about your topic and placing them on other web sites can give you inbound links via the article signature. If you submit articles to other sites, you may want to create unique content just for the article submission sites or have a longer or different version of the article on your site so that you are not fighting against duplicate content issues when others syndicate your articles.
  • Writing press releases can give you inbound links.
  • You can participate in forums which provide signature links. If you participate in communities and leave relevant, useful comments then eventually people may want to link to you if they start to like you.
  • Buy links or rent advertising space.
  • Donate to charities for links.
  • People interested in your site may eventually link to you without you asking.
    Generally, this is where SEO battles are either won or lost in competitive markets.

Generally, the easier and cheaper the link is to get, the less a search engine will want to trust it. Getting other people to want to talk about you or your business (and link to you) is the golden egg of SEO.

Search engines want to count legitimate editorial citations. They would prefer not to count other types of links as votes. Some engines, such as Google, have advanced algorithms to find and discount many artificial links.

Yahoo! Backlink Check07.05.14

Backlinks is another way of saying "links into a page". When you check backlinks in Yahoo!, ('linkdomain:www.whateversite.com'), it shows most of the known links into a site. Yahoo! has also had some trouble with 301 redirects and may show the wrong URL locations for some of the backlinks.

You can check the backlinks into your home page specifically by specifying the full URL of the home page ("link:http://www.whateversite.com/").

Yahoo! and Affiliate Web Sites06.28.14

Yahoo! tries to edit out many of the "site in a box"-type affiliate sites as well as any content that does not add value to your search experience. Yahoo! does not hate affiliate websites, they hate unoriginal, replicated content, as it degrades the quality of their search results if a searcher sees the same things over and over again.

It does not hurt you to have affiliate links on your website as long as you also have some original content. It is also worth noting that some search engines may also have custom algorithms designed to detect and demote thin affiliate sites.

A Listing in the Search Engines06.21.14

If there's one thing every business owner wants it's this: you want lots of people to find your business. That's why you want a presence (or a better presence) on the Internet. The Internet, after all, is the World's biggest marketplace.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if you had a shop (or an office) in the best location on the most popular street of every English speaking town and city in the World? Well that's exactly the Internet equivalent of having your web site on the first page of the search engines.

Personalized Search06.14.14

The word Jaguar has drastically different meanings to a person searching for a car or an animal. Personalization mixes some of the sites you have viewed in the past near the top of the search results. So if many searchers frequently visit and trust your site those searchers will get your site mixed in near the top of the search results more often.

Google Update Jagger05.24.14

In November of 2005, Google rolled out another major update that caused a roar on the SEO forums. I believe that the update was most likely related to scrubbing link quality. Google also appeared to have placed more weight on TrustRank or another similar technology.

The value of low-quality automated links is going down daily. SEO is becoming more and more about public relations and viral marketing.
