For all of my friends here i wanted to share some information based on results. We all know that google is using different algorithms and hitting sites for different purposes with their panda's updates. But which sites in reality do they hit? Types of sites that are hit by Panda : 1. Auto Blogs (Most of them) 2. Duplicated Content (Most of them) 3. Blog Networks (They will start soon to get hit) 4. Sites with Spam links (Most of them) 5. Sites with low quality Content (Some of them) 6. Micro Niche Sites (Sites with just 1-3 posts and for Adsense Purpose) I've heard a lot of peoples claiming that they had complete white hat pages and they were hit, but when they send to me their sites, what i've saw was either duplicate content or spam backlinks. What you should do to stay away from problems with Google. I know that this is a black hat site but for long term projects it is the best to go with safer ways for your site. Okay here is the list of things that you should do to be safe from algorithms. Do: 1.Quality Content (Still the King and it always will be as that's what peoples will be reading). 2.At least 10 pages with quality content per site (Avoid very small sites, if they aren't still hit they will be soon). 3.Avoid Backlinks from Spam sites. (You are looking for quality, and if you are getting links from a site that is removed from Google, believe me that you are decreasing your sites ranking) 4.Avoid Blog Network links (Not all of them, avoid those blog networks that have a high OBL, now Google has an algorithm which will hit those sites, like in the early days of Panda when they hit Article Directories. 5.Link Neighborhood : I said it before, try to get links from authority sites and not from Spam Sites. This are 5 things that you should do but there are some more which i won't mention as they won't do any big difference. So it is clear that you should Avoid : Spammy Backlinks Duplicated Articles Small Micro Niche Sites Duplicated Content and Low Quality Content So you may ask, how in the hell can i automate the link building process? Well pretty simple, let's start with scrapebox: 1. Scrapebox by some peoples is considered as a dead tool.. But in fact is more alive than ever. It is always better to work smart than to work hard... So people claim that Scrapebox is harming their sites. Of course that it is, when you are just posting in different spam sites. While you have scrapebox and you can find very good links with low OBL, Why in the hell do you blast your sites to those spam links? So do not say that the tool is harming your site, it is you who are using it in the wrong way. 2. Senuke X : Can it create web 2.0 profiles? If yes than just add good content and you will get quality backlinks from those sites. 3. X-rumer : Can it create forum profiles ? If yes than just go and post like 10-20 posts and put your links on signature and those links are quality links. 4. Bookmark your site : Do you have one of the Bookmarking tools? If yes than you can use as they won't harm your sites. And a lot of other tools which you can use in a good way, but what i see is people blasting sites and doing nothing good. Analyzing your Competitor Backlinks is another thing which should be taken in consideration. 1. Take the first 5 competitors and check their backlinks. 2. Check which are the links that most of the competitors are linking too (Those links are valuable) 3. Link to those links 4. Find quality links by your self which your competitors do not have. 5. Create links to those links. And that's it on outranking a competitor. The last but not least, Create links relevant to your niche (Not always, but it is good to have links which are in the broad topic to yours). So if you follow this rules, i'm sure that you won't be hit by Panda or any other Algorithm which is trying to get away those sites which aren't bringing quality. Hope some of you can learn some things from this thread.
