Does Using AWeber Create an SEO Penalty?

Some interesting comments during the last year resulted in this article about how using AWeber at least indirectly can create an SEO penalty for your website.

After you read that article here are some more SEO points to ponder:

Are you evaluating the possible NEGATIVE reputation of third party services whose links appear on your site?

This includes not just autoresponder services, but advertising services, link services, etc.

Personally, I mainly use AWeber for an IM related autoresponder. This is because when I sell products using Warrior Plus there is an option for buyers to automatically receive my AWeber newsletter subscription form.

However, for other newsletters, especially for non-IM topics, I almost always try to use my own autoresponder script. If nothing else, I have always wanted all links and forms to refer to my domain.

Now I have another reason for wanting this - SEO.

Are you evaluating the possible POSITIVE reputation of third party services whose links appear on your site?

The opposite of not wanting any overlooked links to bad neighborhoods is evaluating whether links associated with "good neighborhoods" might give an SEO boost.

I had in mind using the Facebook commenting system on your website, or Disqus or other service that makes an effort to ID users and eliminate spam.

Not every factor used by Google to rank sites is a negative factor. Why would that be? There should also be positive factors. Being associated with good services should help just has being associated with bad services may hurt rankings.

Are you considering ORDER FORM links?

In addition to autoresponder services, another overlooked form or link many Internet marketers will have is their order form.

Earlier this year I started using Squeeze Links for purchase links.

Although Squeeze Links was originally created with the idea of hiding affiliate links from Google, it can hide any link.

I realized that some payment processors, like ClickBank or WarriorPlus or other third party services may not be valued by Google.

So I have been "eliminating" them from what Google sees on my sites.

The bottom line: carefully review (do not gloss over) what third party references and links exist on your websites, and evaluate whether they could harm your SEO rankings and take action to fix the problem.
