Hi folks, there has been a lot of turmoil recently with the banning of blog networks and the "over optimization" penalties being talked about. I'm making this thread so we can share what we have noticed or what is working in regards to SEO. I'll start off with my observations... First off, anchor text diversity is a huge importance now. You can't just blast your site with "keyword". Gotta switch it up and use "click here", "http://siteurl.com", related KW's, etc. I've also noticed that social bookmarks are still working really well, after buying a 500 bookmark blast for one of my pages with targets a keyword with 50k exact matches it jumped to #20. I've tried using 2.0's in various ways, but haven't noticed any extraordinary results. Really out of all the things I've tried lately nothing seems to working very well except for social bookmarks. With google cracking down on blog networks and over optimization SEO is starting to get very tricky. Please share your opinions!
