Hey everyone just a quick and fairly brief question but since Panda and Penguin changed a lot, I was just wondering if there have been any major changes SEO wise when it comes to blogs. I do not need any detailed explanations as anything that is mentioned, I will happily do my own research on. Even though I am sure this is one of the methods which was hit I do not intend on guest posting, (unless it was a pretty amazing blog) as this blog is related to my business, and thus needs to be done in a way which would not bring my reputation into question. I understand that content is king and I do not use any copied content on my blog, every post is written by myself and checked for unique % before going live. All alt tags are filled etc. I am already Posting to my social media accounts Submitting to social bookmarking websites (StumbleUpon, Folked, Reddit etc) I know from the little I can remember that there are directories but for blogs, (not just a general directory) how effective are these today? Also I guess RSS and submitting to feeds is still effective? I do understand that for example in the case of blog directories (if it is still effective) it will need to be a high quality/non spammy one. Anyways I look forward to hearing any advice/pointers on this SEO issue.
