Getting The Gist of It

    Google Penguin

    The recent Penguin update focused on the quality of links pointing to websites, those caught withsub par quality could have seen a drop in their ranking.  As well, the Penguin algorithm has taken into account the overall quality of websites; relevant content is a must.  All in all, only about 3% of websites have been affected by these updates, a very small number and odds are, your site was not one of them.  The main point is to prevent spam sites and change the game from rapid poor quality link building to quality content and links.

    New Tool To Help Clean Things Up

    Disavow links


    If your website has been affected, one of the simplest methods of dealing with this problem is to clean up your links. This last week Google released the Disavow link tool that enables users to submit links to be removed that they have researched, know are bad and have already tried to remove. There is no promise, however, that this will solve all your ranking problems or that there will be instant results, Google has said it could take many weeks for sites to see change and will take into account what attempts you have made to fix problems first.

    Social Media

    Cutting the spam is a reward for Social Media marketers who are hard at work creating quality and relevant content.  Cleaning up search results leads to openings that appropriate sites can fill and users will have an easier time finding exactly what they are looking for, instead of being directed to content-less sites flooded with links.

    What do you think of these updates? Have they affected your site positively or negatively?



    1. I blog frequently and I seriously thank you for your information. This
      article has truly peaked my interest. I am going to book mark
      your website and keep checking for new information about once a week.
      I opted in for your RSS feed as well.

    2. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never
      found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
      In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content
      as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful
      than ever before.

    3. Superb post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.

    4. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your website.
      It seems like some of the written text on your posts are
      running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback
      and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my
      browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    5. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
      Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways,
      just wanted to say fantastic blog!

    6. You could certainly see your enthusiasm in the article you write.
      The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as
      you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. Always follow your heart.

    7. You’re so awesome! I do not think I’ve truly read anything like that before.
      So nice to discover someone with a few original thoughts
      on this issue. Really.. thank you for starting this up. This site is something that’s needed on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

    8. No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, so he/she wants
      to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is
      maintained over here.

    9. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
      I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

      The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
      for something unique. P.S My
      apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    10. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
      It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
      very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb
      usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
      Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera.
      Outstanding Blog!

    11. I pay a visit everyday some sites and information sites to read posts, except this web site gives quality based articles.
