I don’t think anyone would argue about how important Google is to most people, whether they’re an advertiser, blogger or the multitude of users who rely on the accuracy of Google’s search engines. As far as bloggers or web masters are concerned there’s basically only two of Googles services we’re interested in and strangely enough they are interrelated. As you’ve probably guessed I’m talking about traffic and the income generated from their Adsense account. Even if you don’t use Adsense on you’re site I’m sure you’re very dependant on the traffic Google sends you, otherwise you wouldn’t be spending so much time with SEO, now would you?
Which brings me to what this post is all about, how not to piss Google off because doing so can hurt you, like it did me some time ago when Google stripped my PR4 blogs of all their ranking, which just happened to inspire me to write this poem about Google . Anyway, as most of you know I’ve been blogging for several years and in that time I’ve come to learn a bit about Google and what the big boy wants from us and I’m about to share that with you.

Google, Seo And Keywords
I have to admit I never used to bother too much about keywords because it was all to hard and it ruined the whole blogging experience. That was before I bought Market Samurai which now does all the hard work for me. I’m sure most of you know a lot about keywords and how they relate to SEO but I’m not sure that you’re actually doing it the right way. Sure it may have been the right way once but what with all those changing algorithms it’s not a big stretch of the imagination to realize things have probably changed.
By some of the emails I’ve been receiving I reckon others have come to realize that Google is a pretty smart cookie. Luckily I haven’t been making the same mistakes as some of my readers, especially those taking advantage of CommentLuv Premium’s Keyword Luv facility. Even though no-one can possible know how Google really thinks, sorry to all those SEO guru guys out there it’s not too hard to make a few assumptions.
- Assumption #1: Google’s not dumb enough not to realize that there’s something fishy about too many links pointing to one particular site appearing in a short time span. If this is an accurate assumption to make then the logical solution is to not go crazy on creating too many backlinks all at the same time.
- Assumtion #2: Knowing that Google wants to deliver a search engine to it’s users that is both accurate and reliable it’s not unreasonable to assume that Google is more interested in natural links than those created by SEO minded bloggers and web masters which is why Google introduced it’s Panda and Penquin updates and who knows what other animalized future updates it has in mind.The common mistake that I’ve seen a lot of commentators, on this and other blogs, doing is using the same keywords over and over again. I reckon it’s pretty safe to say that noticing all these sites using the exact same keywords would set alarm bells ringing when the GoogleBots come to spider those sites. I mean honestly, do you really think that everybody linking to a particular site would use the exact keywords?
How I’m Utilising The 2 Assumptions
In promoting my post on how not to lose money in the stock market I’m ensuring that I take the above two assumptions into consideration. This is because that particular post is using one of the WordPress plugins that I spoke of in my post about Turning Your Blog Into A Cash Machine.
I know it’s going to take more time if I’m going to do things properly but I’m fine about that because that post will only produce an income if I get targeted traffic and that won’t happen if I rush things. This means not using my other blogs to link to that post all at once as I would normally do. Instead I am spacing those posts apart so as to look more natural to the GoogleBots.
The same applies to my commenting regime. Rather than hitting a huge amount of blogs on a daily basis I’m scaling back a lot which allows me to spend more time on some of those comments allowing for better comments which has the added advantage of building my reputations as a good commentator.
Also when commenting on those blogs that use KeyWord Luv or CommentLuv Premium, I make sure that I don’t always use the same keywords, taking note of assumption #2. Having said that I am making sure that although I am using different keywords they are still all related to the topic in question, saving money by not making mistakes on the stock market. I’m hoping that building these types of backlinks will appear more natural resulting in a better SEO result leading to a more targeted traffic resulting in more money in my pocket.
