Why should you Nofollow your links? Google trying to kill your website?

Google is getting a bit absurd with suggesting that any form of content creation that drives links should include rel=nofollow. Certainly some techniques may be abused, but if you follow the suggested advice, you are almost guaranteed to have a negative ROI on each investment – until your company goes under.

Some will ascribe such advice as taking a “sustainable” and “low-risk” approach, but such strategies are only “sustainable” and “low-risk” so long as ROI doesn’t matter & you are spending someone else’s money.

The advice on infographics in the above video suggests that embed code by default should include nofollow links.

Companies can easily spend at least $2,000 to research, create, revise & promote an infographic. And something like 9 out of 10 infographics will go nowhere. That means you are spending about $20,000 for each successful viral infographic. And this presumes that you know what you are doing. Mix in a lack of experience, poor strategy, poor market fit, or poor timing and that cost only goes up from there.

So what is this new Google disavow tool, and is it safe to use it?

So you are worried. You are hoping to get a good ranking from Google, but have noticed your links don’t look too good. Google may also have given you negative feedback on your paid links. You want to get rid of those. Or worse, you find you have back links from porn sites and after exhausting effort are unable to get the Admin of those sites to get rid of those for you.

Here’s Matt Cutts, the head of search spam at Google, reassuring those who have worries about bad links of how to deal with those. Matt suggests that every effort should be taken to get rid of the links by writing to the Admin of the offending Websites first. If that doesn’t work, and we’ve exhausted every effort to solve the problem, we can use the Google Disavow Web tool:

 

 

BUT is it safe to use the disavow tool?… Read the rest

Google AdSense Policy Violations

We know a lot of you on here display Google Adsense advertisements on your websites hosted with us to make a little extra money. We also know many of you have had your Adsense account banned or blocked with no apparent reason and with no explanation from Google.

I found a post today on Google`s Adsense Blog that provides a little (only a little mind you) more insight to why Google ban Adsense accounts. I`ve had it happen to myself in the past after earning over £150 with very little communication back from Google except a generic email.

Below is an image of the revised Google Adsense Guidelines. (click the image to enlarge)

Dot.tk a scam registrar? Or is it?

Dot-TKOK, so you got yourself a .tk Website. You feel very lucky that you got a domain name that you wouldn’t have been able to get with .com. It is also available for free from dot.tk. Great. So now you do lots of SEO, work your fanny off in whipping it up in shape. Your dot.tk domain takes off, appears on the first pages of search results. And bang! All of a sudden dot.tk takes it back. It’s a premium domain they say. And you feel scammed.

But have you been scammed, or is this just how dot.tk is growing their business?

If you check their TOS they have been very up front about it. You only get to loan their domain at their discretion. It says very clearly that dot.com can take back their domain at any time. And you agreed to it as well.

8.2. Modifications to FREE DOMAIN.

Unlimited Hosting BEWARE!

unlimited hostingThere is no such thing as unlimited hosting. Yet it’s being advertised a lot by unscrupulous or naive Webhost owners to get you to sign up with them. Be careful! If it is too good to be true, it is too good to be true.

1. ALL hard drives have physical limits. This means that there will ALWAYS be limits to how much data can be uploaded. There is no such thing as unlimited hard disk space.

2. The number of files you can store is NEVER unlimited. The Inode Limit of an “unlimited” account is usually set to 25,000 files. Those naive enough to buy into the “unlimited” offer ad, may only realize this once they have exceeded this limit and cannot upload more files.

3. Count on the hardware being less reliable due to large storage requirements. High end drives usually are very expensive, so lower quality hardware is used to carry the larger space.… Read the rest
