    Hi guys,

    I'm launching my new site within a week, which is totally legit and costed me a lot to have developed.
    Now it's time for SEO, I know the basics but I'm not a pro. What do you guys recommend to do here.

    I see a lot of packages on the marketplace, but I'm not sure if they are safe. What's the best way to be a 100% certain that my seo will be done safely? All tips are welcome!


    Thanks in advance,




    WHITE HAT ONLY

    Or buy a good expired domain with high authority links from site like HUFFPOST, TECHCRUNCH, FORBES and many more.

    You can build an authority site with these domain also and add daily unique high quality content or just use them to build your PBN.Check my signature to get these domains

    I'm using a PBN from a well respected member on here and I'm having great results with it on my eCommerce site.

    safest route to protect your investment is to build your own pbn. you can bypass all that and just use a pbn service here but realize that they aren't truly "private blog networks" if they are being advertised in a public forum and it may (or may not) cause you trouble down the line.

    Good to see somebody thought to ask a sensible question before offering advice.

    OP, there is no one size fits all SEO (even though many people try to sell it, lol), if you want advice you will have to provide a few more details.

    It's an e commerce business focussing on several western and asian countries. We will go live in a few weeks, and I hope to rank high on specific keywords. Do you need more info? If so, what?

    Thanks

    Hmm I suggest that you optimize your website, that would be best, don't go keyword stuffing cause sometimes that's what causes penalties. Add meta description to your website, one that clearly defines your site that is 150-160 in length with your keywords inserted in them, make your text/Html ratio clean, Headers should follow the format that is 1 header for header no. maximize the use of all header for one page, don't put two header for one header no. and other SEO related stuff.

    whitehat seo with no risk does not really exist. None of the packages sold here or on any other seo forums are "whitehat" seo in google's eyes, despite what they claim.

    If you really want whitehat seo and no risk, you should try to "publish quality content" and try to promote it but making sure you do not ask for any backlinks. That's the official moto on "whitehat seo", if you are really into that.

    Or pay Adwords.

    I don't know what do you mean by "safe", the truth is there is nothing safe when it comes to google. Even if you don't do any backlinks you might get slapped by google or some competitor do a neg seo on you.

    So safe thing is hq guest blogs on real sites, hand made web 2.0.
    PBN are not that safe, expect if its your pbn and you are using it only for your projects.

    Start work on some high quality Press Releases and depending on what you are selling then a proper Social Media campaign may be useful. Have you set aside a budget for PPC?

    This infuriates me when people say this.

    Anyone who seriously says that the only whitehat SEO is writing quality content and hope people find it are just simply ignorant. I have NEVER heard Google say not to build links, they always say "The best way to get backlinks is to build quality blah blah content".

    Google allows you to build links to promote your website, but you are not allowed to build them in an effort to affect your search rankings.

    Google even mentions building your own links when it talks about interlinking your own sites. It says "excessive interlinking" can be bad.

    By definition, this means non excessive interlinking is perfectly acceptable. This is a clear debunking of the myth that you cannot build links to your site.

    You can't cross link without building a link, therefore I must conclude that building backlinks is perfectly acceptable to Google, when done in the normal promotion of your business.

    The problem is that Google is sorta all over the place on what it considers acceptable promotion, and what is acceptable today may get spammed to death later and have to be dismantled.

    As long as you stay within reason, you can promote your business anyway you want. If you have digital material, and you make a slideshow, it makes perfect sense from a business promotion standpoint to put that on document sharing websites and link to your site.

    Doing this a few times with original quality material will help your ranking, and increase your visitors to your website. Google will consider this acceptable backlinking.

    But if you take the slideshow, spin it into 100 versions, and post them all online targeting all your keywords, Google is going to frown on this.

    Has anyone EVER been penalized by placing a link on their business Facebook page? Raise your hand if your Liked in profile link caused your site to get banned or a drop in rankings. No one?

    Ever ppublish a post on Linked in with your link in it? Did you drop in rankings? Me neither.

    Who here got nailed for you twitter account link? Lets see a show of hands.

    I had a local radio station pick up one of my customers services as a filler piece (I mailed them a PR), and they put an article on their website with a link to his site. You know what? It didn't hurt at all.

    SEO isn't just backlinking, but when it comes to backlinking, SEO is the art of using good business promotion methods to acquire backlinks. so it looks like good business promotion instead of SERP manipulation.

    Until you wrap you your head around that you will never get SEO.

    ACT IKE A BUSINESS.

    Create your website with keywords and key phrases in mind. Research keywords and key phrases you think people might use to find your site. Single words are not always the most effective target, try multi-word phrases that are much more specific to your product/service and you'll be targeting end users that are much more likely to want what you are offering.

    Want to get real result then get home page backlinks, high PR, relevance and low OBL.

    Going overboard can be risky.

    I would first concentrate on gathering relevant data and blasting emails first. Then if you have the money
    for it think about Adwords or Media buys, however if you want to go down the SEO route which you should
    then build your own network to make sure others can't mess it up.

    As my experience you first start from social media sites, just create profile on top social media sites then do other links. Don't do huge links slow and study only workout today SEO.

    Not really, google changed a lot their stance on what they said during the last years. They used to stay guest blogging is legit, then nowadays guest blogging is bad. They used to say only spammy article directories are bad, then give unnatural notices for links from Ezine articles, arguable the best manually reviewed and high quality article directory.

    They used to say that contributing to other sites is legit, and then give unnatural link building notices to moz contributors who blogged on seomoz, who went through strict editorial guidelines before having their articles accepted.

    So just because they said in the past that crosslinking is ok, it is not by no means a "clear debunking of the myth" that link building is good. You should focus less on what they say - especially outdated advice -, and more on what they do.







    Those are all no-follow links, of course you won't get penalized, but they don't help you rank eitehr. That's not what link building refers to when people say they want to start building links.

    Do you mind elaborating on what people are referring to when they say to start building links?
