Another Disavow Compilation

One day you open your favorite SEO tool dashboard and it shows a large number of fresh incoming links. But don’t be too proud of yourself and your SEO efforts – unless you know the exact reason for turning so famous online (like, Google revealed last night, that YOU are the unnamed Googler, who replaced Matt Cutts – the head of web spam) you should check all the incoming links thoroughly and in most cases prepare yourself for a tiresome work on updating your Disavow file(s).

Google Penguin Update

Can’t but share a funny video dedicated to the latest Penguin Update issued by Google.

If seriously Google Penguin update is all about NOT MAKING MISTAKES that cause bans, penalizing or a specific filter applied to your website. Naturally, each of us would like to know exactly what Google considers a mistake (that is what I call overoptimisation or unnatural seo techniques). What we have today is lack or decreasing number of effective tools for seo and a sharp need to distinguish between what works and what does not. Some methods are becoming openly dangerous and unacceptable if you are serious about bringing your website to top positions.

Getting hundreds of links overnight promised by some seo companies might sound fantastic to a layer man but any seo expert knows that it is a shortway ...

Caffeine Update

Despite the fact the Google updates and enriches its algorithms continuously updates of such a scale as the upcoming Caffeine Update has not been known since 2006. For the first time ever Google introduces testing the SERPs in the existing and “Caffeined” version of the search engine.  Even though the Google team stresses that the primary aim of the update is to optimize the architecture, visible changes occurred to multiple keywords both in low and high competition industries.
