Shady Link Building Methods You Should Avoid

Written by Julia on April 15th, 2011. Posted in Articles

Building links is one of the important components of search engine optimization. Many marketers consider link building as a way to improve their websites ranking and drive traffic. There are many link building tactics out there. Some of them are aimed at building natural looking links that would produce long-term results. Other practices teach how to build many links in the shortest time and with fewer efforts. But such links can hurt a website in prospect.

When it comes to link building, not every link is counted as a vote for the website. Although the search engine is not a human, it uses the algorithm to discern good and bad backlinks. The search engine evaluates the websites links are coming from, anchor text, quantity of links appearing within a period of time and some other factors. If there is any doubt, the search engine can consider the links as spammy and lower the website in ranking.

So, whether you are just starting your link building campaign, or looking for new link building methods you've never used before, here is a good list of things Not To Do while optimizing your website:

How You Can Double Your Link Building Efforts

Blog commenting is becoming more and more popular as one of link building tactics. The comment author receives an extra link to his website or blog that favours the website exposure. And the blog owners are always happy to receive good comments – it's important for them to keep a lively interest to their posts.

Of course, a "DoFollow" backlink is a great reward for a valuable comment because it helps improve the search engine position. But the comment allows a reader have only one backlink and this link may have the commentator's name or nickname as the anchor text that doesn't mean much for search engines. 

So why not to reward the comment author with an extra link with more relevant keywords in the anchor text? This is an excellent way to promote the readers' websites and this can be done automatically with the use of a particular plug-in!

Written by Julia on February 18th, 2011. Posted in Articles

Blog commenting is becoming more and more popular nowadays. It's the best way to tell your opinion about the blog post you read, add something that was not covered in the post, and discuss the post with other readers. In addition, by sharing your thoughts, you get backlinks and traffic to your website because you provide your name and URL. However, blog commenting is not only used for getting traffic but also for various other reasons. So, let me show you top 5 reasons why you should comment on blogs:

Fast Blog Finder v2.6 vs. v3.0: Live Test

Written by Julia on February 12th, 2011. Posted in Articles

We’ve been working hard at the new 3 version of Fast Blog Finder and now I've got my private 3.0 version to test.

In addition to the improved search and checking engine, we added several new features to the v3.0.

So, the new version can determine the blog type from two new platforms and find much more DoFollow blogs where you can comment on.

Plus, the v3.0 can skip the blogs where you must login or register to post a comment and search for your approved comments on the blogs.  And in the v3.0 there is the form auto-fill option where you can create different profiles (name, email, URL, and signature) for different niches.

Is it worth to upgrade to the v3.0? Let’s see.

Value Proposition: Why They Should Buy from You

Written by Julia on December 16th, 2010. Posted in Articles

As in any other marketing, online businesses face a strict competition. Most online companies sell products or services that are not unique and that are available somewhere else. So, if you are one of those businesses who struggle for potential buyers, your main objective is to convince the prospects to buy from you and not from your competitors.

This may come as a SHOCK to you…

Fast Blog Finder v3.0 has a new engine which recognizes new blog platforms and finds much more DoFollow blogs than the previous version. When developing the v3.0 we spent many hours for manually verifying hundreds of blogs to ensure that the program determined the blog type correctly.

Despite this, we don’t expect the program to be 100% accurate in analyzing the blogs. So, we added the "Report Wrong Blog Type" option to the program. Using this option you can send us the URL of the blog that was determined incorrectly by Fast Blog Finder. We'll check it out and make improvements in the program engine. When a new version of the checking engine is available, Fast Blog Finder will download it automatically when you open the program. You won't need to re-download and re-install the entire program. Fast Blog Finder will update the checking engine automatically every time a new version of it is available.

Well, now I continue my tests…

Where to Check for Backlinks

Sadly, we cannot use old good sites like Google, Alexa, Yahoo! Site Explorer to check for backlinks to our sites anymore. First, Google and Alexa became useless in showing backlinks, then Yahoo! Site Explorer was closed. But luckily I see new crawlers in my site log.

So, now you can get the information about backlinks here:
