Outdated Seo Tactics | Website Magazine | Blog Comment Spamming

In the May issue of  Website magazine I found an interesting article on blog comment spamming as an outdated SEO tactic; it was doubly interesting since I get a lot of comment spamming.

It says that a lot of webmasters still aggressively pursue this method as their primary link building strategy, when in fact Google introduced “nofollow” link tags (signal to search engine spiders to ignore a link) and is known to devalue links in blog comments.

The reasonable and legitimate alternative, says the magazine, is to write interesting , well-written and thought-provoking content, which will generate editorial links — naturally occurring links from other blogs and news sources that search engines value far more than comments in blog posts.

Website Magazine | Twitter Image

I have been receiving website magazine for a few months and I find it enlightnening. They have educational articles on just about everything: blogging, marketing, search engine optimization etc. Here is a short article as an example:

The Importance of  Your Twitter Image:

“As Twitter continues to sweep the Internet, it only makes sense that users are adding more and more followers each day. And while services like TweetDeck can help manage all those incoming tweets, not everyone is using them. That presents a problem for those using Twitter to market their brands. How do you stand out amidst all the noise?

Twitter is an excellent tool for finding breaking news. As such, many users scan their Twitter accounts quickly to find something of interest. Pay attention to how you scan Twitter, and you might find yourself looking at users’ images more than the actual list of tweets. That’s because as you become accustomed to the value of a particular user’s tweets, you look for them specifically. It’s much easier to pick out an image of value rather than the entire tweet. Therefore, it’s important, as a brand, to have an image that is instantly recognizable – one that stands out. That way when users are scanning a long list of tweets, the chances increase that they will stop and read yours. That all depends, of course, on the value you are providing with each and every tweet associated with your image”.
