Hi
I am a SEO and was doing well till January, But my all incomes dropped and right now i am in big bankruptcies...

Could anyone tell me please, how I need to do SEO after this penguin update??

I usually gave my clients page 1 guarantee...

But now, I am quite unsure that it will work or not?
Will those private blog networks will work?

Could anyone say how to do SEO after this penguin updates?

    Stuff like this works. Unfortunately?, they require effort and investment in both time and money.

    - Guest Posting on Quality, Related Sites for Good Content

    - Press Releases (no, not the free submissions sites where anything goes - try prweb and the like). If you don't have anything news worthy to say, then don't publish a press release. Your goal is get real sites to link to you, not get backlinks from press release sites.

    - Quality, Human Edited General Directories - such as DMOZ, Yahoo Directory, BOTW and a few others.

    - Quality Niche Related Directories & Curated Resource Lists - you'll likely need to pay for most of these. A good tactic is to go through the resource lists to find broken links, then email the owner with details of the broken ones you found and then suggest yours. How to find these lists? A good place to start is by looking at your competitor's backlinks, or even sites are related but not really competing with you.

    - Q&A Sites like Yahoo Answers, niche related forums

    - Quality Social Bookmarks (no not hundreds). Maintain 4-6 social bookmarking accounts that you will update manually. Good sites are Diigo, Mister-wong, jumptags, digg, Webmark. In addition to a few of your best posts, you also bookmark everything else I listed before including guest posts, press releases, etc.

    - Limited amounts of commenting on niche related blogs, using your name and not a keywords.

    - Setup profiles at the major social sites: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Friendfeed, Youtube and frequently update them. Whenever you do a guest post or have a press release, share it. Also setup profiles for the site at other places like Technorati, Crunchbase, etc, etc.

    - Publish content on your site that people want to link to. (linkbait) Infographics are a good start. When you do one, you market it to people in the niche and also submit it to places like visual.ly and other infographic directories.



    ...........

    You can do all that, or you can continue to take shortcuts via thousands of bookmarks, article directories, blog networks, etc. and be bankrupt again when Google rolls out the next update.

      Hey man that is such solid good advice.

      Look folks, it's no mystery on how to proceed post panda, get back to work and make legit content, not spammy crap.

      You must understand that google is a massive company with deep pockets. They hire the best talent that exists, scary smart programmers that know how to create algorithms that generate serps that are relevant to what keyword someone typed into the google submit search box.

      Googles entire company is based on getting relevant search results, so it makes sense then that their results are going to give page 1 rankings to sites that offer value, are relevant, have "real" links from social sites, and are recent, get alot of comments and social interaction, and so on. Going forward, only those legit sites (process described in post above) will continue to get google love and not be affected by future google slaps.

    If you don't about how to overcome the Penguin algorithm, please don't offer the page #1 guarantee. You dare to take the risk.

    SEO hasnt changed really its just that marketers got lazy (yes even me)

    Build good content and build good quality links to that content and dont use keyword rich anchor text use a lot of different anchor text like

    Click here
    more info
    find out more

    Dont over optimise your pages you just need to think about your visitor and see if it is useful to them if it is then you are onto a winner.

    The hardest part is giving good value to your visitors and this is what google is trying to clamp down on.

      +1 for this

      The only thing I would add is to also create links using just your raw url with no anchor text.

      Great advice! Sometimes we complicate things. Maybe we just need to go back to the basics; content is still king.

      "Dont over optimise your pages you just need to think about your visitor and see if it is useful to them if it is then you are onto a winner.

    After google penguin we things are sure like we can't follow any backlink hat SEO technique and if our website is involve in any type of spamming or keywords stuffing or trying to get ranking against those keyword which are not related to your website contents.

    One thing for sure try to target related keywords and do backlinks on slow phase. Similarly follow only white hat SEO.

    Hi, My advice is that You should charge more money for your offline clients as now SEO is much costly. You need to build high quality unique content, build high quality links from authority sites, build both nofollow and dofollow links, build both one way and two way links. Do not build spammy and mass links. Every thing should be natural as now Google is not just a Program, its totally becoming natural.

    employ a wide variety of link building strategies because you can never tell what Google is going to do next. diversify a link portfolio by creating links from social bookmarking, blog commenting, profile signatures, article marketing, web 2.0 properties and social media platforms. This way if Google devalues one kind of link with an update to their algorithm, then the site's rankings won't suffer dramatically.

    Do not overoptimize your articles or site contents, vary your anchor texts and sometimes also use a raw URL

    From my Side to Overcome You must try Unique Contents when you try SEO like Articles and Press Release Submission. Avoid Spinning which is not readable. Content must be not Copied from somewhere else. Well I also got penalized from one Penguin In past i was on Top Position so its automatically dropped. I tried Blog Commenting daily for my site. It happened with this. Now I am Trying Web 2.0 and Press Release which are good for fast Indexing into search engines. I am getting faster lifting instead of software work. Well I always prefer Manual work which is alive for Longterm. So it Doesn't hurt anytime. SEO will run smooth in next few days if you do SEO Manually.

    Manual SEO also worked for me. I'm just a novice when it comes to internet marketing but with my amateur knowledge, I'm able to reach PR1 in 2 months. I just update my content once a week, but I always make sure that it is quality and useful content that people can use as reference. Once a week, I do blog commenting, profile links, and social bookmarking. Answering questions at Yahoo Answers has also helped me a lot in terns of driving traffic to my blog. In 2 months, my Alexa went down to 3 Million. I know this is just a small leap for most SEO experts but considering my limitations, I'm very happy with the results.

    Aside from that, I have setup up meta descriptions and keywords for each post and made sure that each post title is SEO-optimized. There are lots of great advice on this thread. I hope I can follow all of them. Thanks!

    The main focus of the Penguin update is to rank down over-optimized sites. Over optimized sites are classified as those who have spammed content, spammed links, low content relevance, low links relevance.

    These changes are in line with Google's general aim of making the online world more trustworthy. Businesses are built on trust, and the internet is quite notorious for fake content, fake claims, and the likes.

    If you wish your site to survive the Penguin debacle, you must start investing on good content. Make sure all posts and links are relevant to the site. In the past, it was common for backlinkers to just link with any other site so long as they have good qualities for backlinking. However, the challenge now is to create high quality backlinks on sites with high levels of relevance with respect to your website.

    In the end, the arduous task of providing high-quality content for your visitors will pay you back not only with higher search rankings, but also with higher traffic conversion rates.
