There a lot of rumors circulating that SEO are obsolete and that link building industry is dead. Well, there isn’t any truth about this. Even if the Google Penguin update had put a lot of website’s ranking in the search engine into a serious drop. There are still several types of link building that are still effective and can still help for your website search rank. Here are some of those ways in which it can still give a big lift on your PageRank.
Since time in memorial I had always been using manual blog commenting. Though I also tried to use some software that can generate automated blog comments, I still stick to commenting on blogs manually. This is basically because I can engage with the website that is relevant to my site and also I can hand-pick those authority sites, as we call it, to ensure that particular site will be sticking around for quite some time and so as my blogs. There is also a big possibility that my comment will be approved. These authority sites had been circulating in the internet for several years and had established high PageRank. These sites also have huge followers that read the posts, thus there is a big possibility that they can come across your blog comments.
It has always been emphasized nowadays that quality content is necessary to keep up with Google. They intend to make it a place wherein people can truly read and engage articles that are relevant to their keyword search. Another way to a higher ranking is through guest posting. Though it is a little tedious, guest posting is extremely effective in making ranking to a notch higher. Press release is another thing as well. Manual distribution of press release can also be a ticket in making your ranking higher for the next update.
WordPress, Squidoo and Hubpages are sites that are Web 2.0 properties. These sites are reviewed every now and then so if you intend to do back linking these sites are ideally favorable. Try putting an effort to write relevant and quality content articles and do not attempt to submit copied content or even spun content since they would easily remove in just a matter of a few days. As I have said quality articles are being emphasized nowadays. Be sure that you have a unique, relevant, quality and intended for human consumption articles and you will surely be approved and thus ensuring that the article will stay longer in those properties.
These are just a few of those effective link buildings to give your website increase its standing in major search engines. Don’t think that the SEO industry is already dead because it is not true and has been proven wrong. It is just important that you don’t overly optimize your site to have a favorable face in Google.
