    10 Controversial Search Engine Optimization Techniques December 29 2013 EarthSkater com 10 Controversial Search Engine Optimization Techniques Ten controversial search engine optimization techniques that should be used with caution or even avoided altogether 1 Duplicate Pages In general search engines ignore duplicate pages In extreme cases they may ban a site 2 Invisible Text Search engines consider the use of text that is the same color as the background color as spam So stay clear of using invisible text 3 Keywords In Comment Tags Hardly any if any of the major search engines index comment tags so don t waste time adding them for optimization purposes 4 Keywords In Hidden Value Tags Keywords in hidden value tags are considered spam by all of the major search engines so don t waste time with this practice 5 Keywords In Style Tags Very few search engines index the content of style 26gt tags so do not waste anytime on this technique 6 Link Farms And Link Exchange Programs Search engines consider link farms and link exchange programs as spam as they have only one purpose to artificially inflate a site s link popularity by exchanging links with other participants Do not confuse link farms and link exchange programs with reciprocal linking Reciprocal linking is the exchange of links with individual sites and certainly an accepted technique for improving your site s link popularity 7 Links Only Pages I recommend adding text descriptions to link pages and site maps Some search engines have been known to kick out links only pages 8 Meta Refresh Tags In general meta refresh tags set for under 30 seconds are considered as spam by search engines As such most search engine optimizers 301 search engine friendly redirect methods to redirect a URL 9 Small Font Size Keywords Text Many of the major search engines consider tiny text i e font size 1 as spam Some use of tiny text is fine Search engines don t like web pages that use a lot of tiny text The reason is because some webmasters have used it to fool search engines by hiding dozens of keywords in a web page 10 Cloaking Cloaking is the practice of serving search engine optimized pages to search engine spiders while at the same time serving un optimized pages to site visitors Cloaking is one of the most controversial strategies in search engine optimization Major search engines publicly state that they consider all cloaking to be spam However many professional search engine optimizers have been using cloaking for years with much success Until there is conclusive proof that search engines do indeed ban sites that use cloaking I suggest you take care if you decide to use cloaking Conclusion There are many controversial search engine optimization techniques There are people who despise the use of certain techniques such as cloaking But the fact of the matter is that there are no right or wrong ways to optimize a web page What might be considered as spam by one search engine may be accepted by another What works today may be banned tomorrow The art and science of marketing is about testing to see what works and what doesn t I recommend taking the same approach with search engine optimization After all it is just another form of marketing Call 877 627 2492 to discuss your marketing plan today SEO Illegal Search Engine Optimization SEO Techniques December 29 2013 EarthSkater com 1 Trademarked Keywords In Domain Names If you re thinking of registering a domain name that includes a trademarked keyword think again Using someone else s trademark to attract customers is illegal It violates federal trademark law which prohibits the use of someone else s trademark if it causes a likelihood of confusion among consumers Take Yahoo for example They objected to 37 registered domains including AtlantaYahoo com DCYahoo com Jahu com and Yhu com 2 Trademarked Keywords In META Tags It s not necessarily illegal to use trademarked keywords in your META tags But you could get sued and people have It all depends on why and how you are using the trademarked keywords If you used the keywords in what is deemed a deceptive manner then you re likely to lose your case However there has been one instance of a defendant who proved to the judge that she had a legitimate reason to use the trademarked keyword Here s a short story to illustrate the seriousness of using trademarked keywords in META tags I had a client who included the trademarked brand name of a competing product in one of his web pages One day he received a letter from the lawyer acting on behalf of the trademark owner in question The letter stated Use of trademarked term constitutes federal false advertising trademark infringements state unfair competition and is deliberately designed to trade on trademarked term reputation and goodwill Placing the term trademarked term in the keywords and META tags of your site inappropriately and unlawfully draws Internet users to your site They threatened to sue unless my client removed the trademarked terms from the META tags Naturally we obliged o What was surprising was that we could use the trademarked terms in the visible page body So we kept the trademarked keywords in the page body 3 Pagejacking Pagejacking is copying someone else s web page and submitting it to the search engines as your own in hopes of getting high rankings Quite often pagejacking also involves page cloaking Pagejacking is no more than stealing copyrighted content It beats me why people would be so dumb as to try this technique Don t try it You will be caught sooner or later 4 Deep Linking Deep linking is the practice of providing a link directly to specific content on a web site s sub page instead of linking to its home page On July 5 2002 the Bailiff s Court of Copenhagen ruled in favor of the Danish Newspaper Publishers Association which claimed that Danish company Newsbooster violated copyright laws by deep linking to newspaper articles on some Danish newspapers web sites The argument is that in bypassing the newspapers home pages Newsbooster links deprive them of advertising revenue Further they asserted that Newsbooster is in direct competition with newspapers 5 Deep Linking Without Permission If a site you are linking to has stated that linking is prohibited or requires permission first then don t link to them If you do you re asking for trouble 6 Trademarked Keyword Advertising Thinking of bidding for competing trademarked keywords in search engines Think again In January 1999 Estee Lauder sued iBeauty and Excite Home saying its trademarks were violated when iBeauty s ads were presented during searches for Estee Lauder trademarked keywords When a person searched Excite Home s search engine for Clinique they were presented with a banner ad for iBeauty In addition the search returned a list of related web sites including iBeauty com 7 Deep Linking Within A Frame If you link to another site s content by displaying it within a FRAME on your site and your ad in another FRAME you re walking on thin ice What you re basically doing is stealing other people s content to generate advertising revenue I would recommend staying clear of this practice Conclusion Take care with the marketing techniques you use If you think a technique can be construed as illegal search the internet for possible legal cases on the technique If you can t find any then it s a good chance that the technique in question is worth pursuing Call 877 627 2492 to discuss your marketing plan today Marketing SEO Keyword Density and Search Engine Rank December 29 2013 EarthSkater com Keyword Density Frequency Prominence And Proximity Affect Search Engine Rank The difference between keyword density frequency prominence and proximity and how they affect search engine rankings Keyword Density Keyword density refers to the ratio percentage of keywords contained within the total number of indexable words within a web page The preferred keyword density ratio varies from search engine to search engine In general I recommend using a keyword density ratio in the range of 2 8 Keyword Frequency Keyword frequency refers to the number of times a keyword or keyword phrase appears within a web page The theory is that the more times a keyword or keyword phrase appears within a web page the more relevance a search engine is likely to give the page for a search with those keywords In general I recommend that you ensure that the most important keyword or keyword phrase is the most frequently use keywords in a web page But be careful not to abuse the system by repeating the same keyword or keyword phrases over and over again Keyword Prominence Keyword prominence refers to how prominent keywords are within a web page The general recommendation is to place important keywords at or near the start of a web page sentence TITLE or META tag Keyword Proximity Keyword proximity refers to the closeness between two or more keywords In general the closer the keywords are the better For example How Keyword Density Affects Search Engine Rankings How Keyword Density Affects Rankings In Search Engine Using the example above if someone searched for search engine rankings a web page containing the first sentence is more likely to rank higher than the second The reason is because the keywords are placed closer together This is assuming that everything else is equal of course Call 877 627 2492 to discuss your marketing plan today Author Michael Wong is the editor of GoDefy com the world s first internet marketing

Marketing Tools com SEO Top 2 Ranking Factors for Google December 29 2013 EarthSkater com The top two Google ranking factors are PageRank Incoming Text Link Keywords PageRank PageRank is determined by the number and quality of links to a page Both the quantity and quality of text links are important Always try to get links from web pages with a PageRank rating of at least four Concentrate on getting as many different quality sites as possible to link to one page on your site usually your home page Do not spread the links to different pages This will maximize the PageRank of your main page plus those of the subpages Incoming Text Link Keywords ALWAYS provide text links for linking to your site Avoid image links Google does index image links but without any text for it to index it won t help your link popularity rating for your important keywords In addition Include the most important keyword phrase in the text link using the EXACT spelling Do not pluralize the keyword phrase if people usually search the singular version of the phrase And vice versa Avoid excess words where possible The linked to page MUST have the text link keywords in the body of the page otherwise Google will discount the page Include the text link keywords within the title tag of the linked to page It is possible for a page without the text link keywords in the title tag to get top rankings But I have discovered that around 80 of top 10 rankings have the text link keywords in the title tag so always include it Well there you have it Those are what I consider the two most important ranking factors used by Google Other factors are considered by Google but their importance pales in comparison to the two I have discussed in this article Follow these tips whenever you optimize your web pages and they will quickly shoot up the Google rankings Earth Skater delivers the most BANG for the buck Call 877 627 2492 to discuss your marketing plan today SEO Link Building Directories December
