Link Removal Requests How I Handle Them

Have you been getting a lot of link removal requests? I know I have and I also know I’m not the only one. My mate Mitch has received so many he even wrote a post about it called Annoying Link Removal Requests! That post also has a video that I’m sure you will find interesting.

The reason your getting all these emails is because for one reason or another the sender of the email has upset Google causing them to receive the “Unnatural Link Warning” email. Here’s one I’ve received just the other day.

We’re seeking to address an “Unnatural Link Warning” that Google has issued to LINK REMOVED. As part of our exploration into this matter, we have discovered the backlinks sources found on your website might be faulty in some way and causing Google’s protocols to react with this response.  We kindly ask you to remove the backlinks listed below as quickly as you possibly can so that we may continue to work with Google in resolving the “Unnatural Link Warning” assigned to us.

Naturally the email may vary but they’re all asking for one thing, for you to remove the link to their site. If they’re smart they may supply the post where the link can be found, if not they expect you to find and remove them. If it’s the latter I simple ignore the email. Read the rest of this entry

You Scratch My Back

You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours is something that has been going on for eons, even in the blogging world. If you’re not sure what it means, basically you’re telling someone that you will gladly do them a favour if they do one for you in return. The first time I used this was when I promised people to follow them to their blog and leave a comment if they left one on my blog. Even though the group I tried to start never really took off the fact that I followed it did put this blog on the map. 

I also used it to get more people to review my blog on Alexa. That worked out pretty well for me too. The reason the ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours’ idea works so well could be because the idea of helping someone in return for help is something that is built into our persona. Even our primate friends do it.

Images And SEO An Important Part Of SEO

Who ever would have thought that images were an important factor of SEO? I know I didn’t. Heck at the beginning I never even worried about putting images in a post. Especially because it was so time consuming to find the right images. When I did learn that images and SEO did work together in helping you get a higher ranking I started to pay more attention to images and SEO.

The trouble though has always been finding the right images to put into my post, I didn’t want to be like all those other sites that put just any unrelated image into the post just for the sake of having an image. That was when I came across Zemanta. It gave me a selection of images to choose for my post. Not always perfect but better than nothing. The problem was they weren’t unique. Everybody was using the same images and I wanted to be unique.

I’ve always believed that being unique was an advantage when creating your online image. One of the reasons why I developed the header package. Knowing that Images and SEO were important in getting you traffic was one of the reasons for buying the Logo Creator. I’ve written about it before and am really surprised that no-one has taken me up on the offer. I’m especially surprised because this amazing software only costs $32! Such a small investment in building your online career. 

Perhaps its the name that puts people off because not everyone wants to create a logo. Truth be told the Logo Creator is so much more potential than creating logos. I used it to help me create my Header package as well as the free bonuses included in the package. I also used it to create Sexy Sals Blonde Jokes. If you were to do an image search of Sexy Sals blonde joke on Google you’ll be surprised how many of them appear at the top of the page. Those images are branded with this sites url address helping to build my brand. Read the rest of this entry
