I won't irritate you with an epic-like post and will just give small points, so no need to worry. Here we go - 1) You gets pagerank if your content is original (well this one is good, it is true as well as false. Lets know why - if you add some content, as new page is created which gets some value if its filled with original content and internal backlinks gets you link juice and finally some pagerank). 2) If the main domain have a good pr then link in inner pages is also good (well its also true as well as false. Because - if the main domain(homepage) have a good pr and the page where ur link is present is have a link in homepage, it will get link juice and eventually the chances of getting good pr will increase. So it will help but its not 100% that it will get good pr.). 3) Nofollow links are useless. (they are helpful if they contains your anchor text but of no use in seo if there is no anchor text although you may get some traffic.). 4) My site is not in google index so its sandboxed! (its not true! Its possible that google have not discovered it yet or it have visited but not indexed as google dont index everything it visits. Sandbox is no official term! Its a kind of a filter which dont let newer sites to rank better for good keywords, it dont means that your site will be removed from google index! Just serps will suffer) 5) If my site is blacklisted, it will never recover! (just remove the virus from your server and ask google for a re-view of your site at webmaster tools) 6) Google dont know about my backlinks if they don't appear when i search link:mysite.tld. (Its is completely false! Google don't show all links by that! Only good links giving you great link juice can be seen by that, you can see complete backlinks by webmaster tools). 7) Black hat will get a new site killed! (Its true but you can escape that by using some brain - Firstly get good backlinks from ezine, hubpages, squidoo and some other sites like them then do black hat for those pages with your links and then after some time when all the links gets indexed, you can do some black hat directly to your site but don't be so greedy and never make black hat your main source of backlinks, only get 20% of backlinks by black hat for new sites and for older sites it can go up to 50% depending upon the age. This is the figure to get you on 99.99% safe side). 8) Social bookmarking gets you pagerank (Its true if the sites are without nofollow but if its with nofollow links then it will only help in getting indexed faster). Some of my thoughts about which i am not 100% sure - 1) Domain age doesn't matters! (Like if a domain is 10 years old but indexed yesterday then it will be treated like a new site! The time when it was first indexed matter and the value may decrease if your domain was blacklisted or penalized due to duplicate content or some other issues in the meantime) 2) Content which is sinned by softwares or with bad grammar will get you penalized (i do a lot of experimentations with google to know all of their latest techniques, in my ongoing experiment i saw that the content by softwares or with bad grammar is penalized, have a lot of problems in indexing and even if i gets indexed, google don't cache it or don't let it get good serps) I was thinking to create an e-book will all info (I have huge info) and a guide with day wise schedule like do this in day one and second and third and so on... But don't get much time. I do a lot of experiments and takes risks to let you guys know more about seo, to refine my skills and be familiar with all the latest changes in Google's tactics. Hopefully you will see my E-Book on SEO in marketplace (Note: I have not started working on it). Have a nice day and feel free to add more info here You can also ask me questions to clarify your doubts. Recently i saw some of guys giving me negative reps! I don't know what problem they have, this is what i can see - "shut the hell up, bitch" for this post - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ll-help-you-free-post1526112.html#post1526112 "you suck!" for the same post and there are some other negative reps too! Everyone have the right to express their views but kindly let me know about the problem which you have with me so i can fix that.
