Pandas, penguins, backlinks, anchor-texts… whoever you blame, chances are that you’ve experienced a Google slap or two, if you’ve been doing SEO for a while.
The same is true for me: several of my niche sites that were previously ranking and earning well were slapped from their SERP perches at one point or another. Is it possible to recover a slapped site and get back to previous rankings and traffic levels?
I don’t know, but with this case study, I intend to find out.
Search engine optimization has always been a moving target. Algorithms change, people’s expectations of websites and web content change and SEOs need to adjust accordingly to keep up.
The Google Panda update of March 2011 and many of the subsequent updates have shook up the SEO world to a greater degree than any updates before that (at least since I’ve been involved in SEO). As a consequence, there’s quite a bit of conflicting and misleading or simply out-dated information about SEO floating around right now.
In this article, we’ll take a close look at exactly what the new SEO landscape looks like and what you can do to rise to the top, once more.
Google does not want good content.
I know you’ve been told otherwise. I know that “Google wants good content” is a phrase repeated over and over, often by people who should know better. Unfortunately, it’s simply not true and believing it could be dangerous.
In this post, let’s examine what Google really wants and what that means for you.
No-Hands SEO is a desktop-based Windows program that promises to take all of the work out of search engine optimization. It’s supposed to do so by automating the backlink building or “off-page” part of SEO. Beyond that, it’s not all that clear what exactly the software does, if the sales-page is all you have to go by.

BuildMyRank is what might be described as a “high-PR blog network” in the style of LinkVana. What you get with “usual” blog networks is the ability to post spun articles to potentially hundreds of (mostly low-quality) blogs. With BuildMyRank, you write unique posts with your links inside them and each post gets submitted to only one single blog.
This may seem like a really bad deal, at first glance, but the key is that a system like BuildMyRank puts the emphasis on quality rather than quantity: BMR only has blogs with pagerank (ranging from PR1 to PR6) in their network and they make an effort to get every single post indexed.
Is it worth the trouble writing unique posts (or outsourcing the task) or should you stick to more automated link-building solutions? Read on to find out.
Take a look around at a few blogs and discussion forums about SEO and you’ll quickly find many recommendations for some backlink building automation tool or another. It’s clear that if you’re looking to get websites ranked systematically, you should be using either software automation or outsourcing to help along the way. While many link-building tools have been discussed an recommended in great detail, individually, the question that remains is: how do they actually compare to each other? Out of all the options, which product is the best one to use?
In this roundup review, that’s the very question we shall aim to answer. Read on to see a complete comparison of Article Marketing Robot, Magic Submitter, Rank Builder 2.0, SEnuke X, SEOLinkRobot, SERPAssist and Sick Submitter.
Sick Marketing’s Sick Submitter is “yet another” automated link-building software and it, just as many tools like it, build backlinks to your sites by doing various content submissions and creating forum profiles. However, as you’ll soon see, while Sick Submitter is similar in principle, to many of it’s competitors, it’s at the same time a completely different beast…
What exactly does Sick Submitter do and is is it better, worse or just different, compared to the competition? Read on for all the details.
