I, as I'm sure many of you, am keen on keeping my SEO footprint light. In past years this might have meant simply buying several softwares, and keeping it mixed up in an attempt to avoid creating a pattern. But with the pace that G is evolving I think it is important that those of us who have an interest in this keep the discussion open of ways we all can lighten the impact of this footprint. The way I'm thinking is there's several things you should call "basic" for keeping it light. First is the material, by which I mean the spin quality. Bad spins are harmful now, and can only get more dangerous going forward. Second is velocity, by which I mean don't be an idiot and spam SEO too much too fast. Third is source, the actual sites and enroutes that you are actually posting to, and their quality, reputation, and variety. But there is much to read in between the lines with these basics. So the question we should start off with is "how." By which I mean what are the most "paranoid" and safe steps we can take to side-step these areas in the most effective way. And are there any innovative tricks that we should keep in mind. So lets get the ball rolling.
