    Hi guys,

    Thought post this guide as my 1500th post... Then I forgot... Anyhow here it is...

    Let?s go directly to the matter without any fluff...

    Unlike old updates these two updates concentrate more on onsite. So, no matter how good your links are your site can still get penalized. That is why you saw of "White hat SEO site" owners screaming after panda...

    Lets see how to beat the penguin and panda.


    Onsite:

    (*) - Important

    Keyword Density - Don't stuff your keywords. Google is smart enough to understand what is your page about... Adding LSI keywords is very important... I would keep keyword density under 1.5%. No over optimization like bold, italic, underline for the keywords every time in the page.

    Title Tag (*) - Use catchy title. For example if you keyword is "Galaxy S III Review" you can give title like "Is Galaxy S III really the best smart phone out there? ". When you give a catchy title for a page, user is tempted to click your link in SERP. Lets say you rank for a keyword at 5th position. When people see your catchy title and click your link, your "Click Through Rate" in SERP will raise and eventually G will place you higher...

    Bounce Rate (*) - When user comes to your page, he sees nothing but ads then hit "back button" immediately... G monitor this data. And you will be penalized if your bounce rate high... You have to make users to click at least once in your site. I did an experiment on this and my bounce rate reduced dramatically. Here is what I did... Lets say I rank for keyword " Galaxy S III review". in the landing page I would have few links " Galaxy S III camera review", " Galaxy S III Break test", " Galaxy S III software review" etc... When user sees this they are more likely to click once of those links. So, they bounce rate will reduce drastically. It will also increase "time on site".

    Time on site - You can check how long an average visitor says on your page . Some pages will have high time and some will have very low... You need to optimize the low time pages. There must be something wrong in those pages. Thats why the users closing it soon.

    Unique Design - Create custom code than using default cms like wordpress. Its more likely to gain more authority. Even if you use wordpress try to use premium themes. When you use custom code, there wont be any duplicate contents like you have in wordpress (tags, categories). Same content will be displayed in many different urls... Matt Cutts is saying that wordpress is okay to use. But I don't buy it...

    Contact, sitemap and privacy policy(*) - Adding contact form wont be enough anymore. You need add some physical address in the contact page. And privacy policy is also important.

    Analytics and Webmaster - I see many people say that using analytics and webmaster tools is bad for your site. I disagree. The main reason for that is they are saying G can track your site easily. Well its true. But G can track your site in so many ways. When user searches in G it automatically start placing a cookie in his system. that is why we get relevant ads in adsense. When user hits back button in browser G can see that user dont like your site. there is no need to take bounce rate in your analytics. If you install adsense they can track using that. More than 25% people are using chrome now. So they can track using that. Like it or not, G has the whole internet in its hands.. Install the analytics and web master. It can help you in a lot of ways... You can imagine that good quality sites wont be afraid to install them. So, if you dont it will look fishy... If you have like more than 10 sites, open a new account. G dont like if a single person runs 100 sites...

    Google Plus (*)- Create a google plus account and add it your site. When the result shows, it will come with your photo. Users are more likely to click it and G gives authority.

    Social Media(*) - Facebook and twitter are very important for every site. Create a page buy some likes and followers in fiverr. It doesnt matter if the users are fake. Its a good start and gives you a lot of authority.

    Rating Systems - Add rating systems where its possible. I added rating system to my blog and gave rating in the backend like around 50 people rated. G digs the rating system. It displayed my post as 1st with rating stars.

    Less ads and affiliate links(*) - the title says it all... I usually use 2 ad blocks instead of 3.

    Offsite:


    No Blast ? Don?t blast comment or profiles links even though its high PR.

    No Follow, D0F0ll0w Ratio : Make the ratio of n0 follow and d0 f0llow as 20: 80 respectively. For example, 800 do follow links and 200 no follow links. Not the other way around.

    Anchor Text Variation: Most you know it?s very important after penguin.
    Around 40% of links to your brand name(or domain name).
    Other 30% generic terms like ?here?, ?click? and etc
    Other 30% for you keywords.

    Inner page link building: Your inner pages should have at least 50% of the total links to your site? For example if your site has totally 1000 links, 500 of them should be pointed to inner pages.

    Guest posting & Sponsored Posts: These are types of links G consider as natural links. Guest posts may be hard. But you can buy sponsored posts from payperpost and sites like that?

    Retweets & Likes : I am not talking about the facebook page likes. I?m talking about url likes. If you have access to around 100 facebook profiles and twitter profiles, you can retweet and like every new post in your site. They work wonders after penguin?

    Web 2.0 :
    Build web 2.0 blog network. Its free and post like 3 posts per day. Use only one of them to link to your money site. It will look natural. If you link all posts to money sites, you will get easily deindexed. Dont forget use unique content for each post. Even very few unique content posts can out rank thousands of spun content posts. Blast the web 2.0 blogs with SB and xrumer.
    Try using web 2.0s in this format : www.web20.com/yourblog. They are more powerful than www.yourblog.web20.com imho.


    These points are made based on experience with number of sites, and some with spending hours researching through the internet. I?m not saying they will work 100%, but it can give you good chance.. Feel free to share your views?
    Hope this helps?

    Regards
    NapsteR

    This is some really great stuff Nap. Obviously I haven't tried it out yet, but this seems like a really solid plan of attack. Many many thanks your way my friend.

    If anyone follows this, I can't imagine Google hating it.
    Thanks again!

    PS, I saw that Hitler video, that was some great stuff, hilarious actually.

    Many thanks for this...i have a question: What do you think about AMR blast directly to your money page - with an ultra-spun article and big anchor text variation? Have you tested that, could this still work?

    Nice post. But I still have to disagree with the google analytics and webmasters.. They are related. I recently switch some of my websites to piwik and noticed a spike in impressions on my new website.

    Awesome tips! One thing that I think you can add to your anchor text diversity are naked URLs. For example, the anchor text will be http://www.sitename.com and sitename.com as the link.

    I'm guessing for the Web 2.0s, you mean make 3 of them per day and have two linking to each other and one linking to your money site?
    I just did 3 linking to my money site today (only started today) but I think I'm fine for now. I'll do this interlinking tomorrow.

    And what do you suggest we do for Twitter SEO? I have a Twitter accoutn for each of my MNS and I'm currently posting informational tweets along with some tweets regarding my websites.

    EDIT: Great post by the way, bookmarked it for reference :)

    Another tip I'd like to add which worked for me:
    Try and "brand" your domain. Example:
    If your keyword is "english movies" and domain is englishmovies.tld(since most of you use EMDs), also link to it as:
    englishmovies
    download movies at englishmovies
    download movies at englishmovies.com
    download movies from englishmovies
    download movies from englishmovies.com
    download films from englishmovies
    download films from englishmovies.com
    englishmovies.com
    englishmovies is a great website for downloading english movies
    ...
    and so on. Once you make your website, sit down and write how real people would link to your website, and use those as anchor texts besides the keywords you're targetting and the normal stuff like naked urls and "click here", "source" etc.

    Another thing I recommend is not going after keywords which display google images, google shopping etc. or if it's a dirty niche where your competitors will blast the shit out of you with spam links.

    I don't agree with some things and I base that on my research.

    N0folow/d0f0llow: I go for 100% d0follow. Never build n0f0llow. You get 10-15% n0f0llow naturally and if you analyze powerful sites most of them have only 5-20% n0f0llow links. I could explain why large % of n0f0llow is an indicator of link spam but can't be bothered with that now.

    Anchor text variation: what NapsteR said plus links from images, links from images that are also in your post, URL links, phrases with keywords (e.g. 'buy cialis' => 'here's a good place to buy cialis online'), etc.

    Inner page link building: I go for at least 80% of the links to inner pages for small sites and over 95% of the links to inner pages for big sites.

    If you remember only one thing, remember "NO BLASTS". That is very very bad.
