Quit it! Why? Nothing has changed! The core fundamentals are still there! People just ignore them - bit like blind leading the blind. Someone says to blast a number of links off an automated platform - and all follow.
But noone actually thinks - SURPRISE SURPRISE.
CONTENT CONTENT CONTENT!
What has google been talking about for the last 18 months? What has been their key strategic direction when it comes to information free flow?
CONTENT > CURRENT > FAST : RANKINGS
You have content that is new, related, current and informative to your niche - YOU WILL RANK!!!
It is actually funny now to see all these "SEO Specialists" [read: "ive got a degree in marketing and think I can con people but am clueless"] panic as all of a sudden over the past 2 weeks their efforts on building links arent altering rankings for their clients......lets blame Google!
Google are smart - this change was for the better.
Now hopefully - the crap from the market will either go bankrupt or just fizzle away to get into another Fad
Oh I like the village idiots still creating profile links and trying to make money off it by selling it as a service!
