Greetings Warriors

Hoping I don't post a thread that has been beaten to death already
(my search results didn't turn up much). I figured a thread for everyone to share their thoughts on Current Backlinking Panda Proof strategies to implement for 2012 couldn't hurt etc............................

I am curious with all that has happened in the last month if anyone can share their ideas / new approaches to getting solid worthwhile back-links that are going to rank well with Google (in light of the recent panda updates and Google announcements)?

I'm very curious on your guys and gals thoughts on Link Emperor and how is that service any safer than UAW or other private blog networks etc?

Also I hear a lot about people using more web 2.0 social bookmarking etc
can someone post a link that goes into details on this exact process
with the most current information please?

Ps I spent the last couple months studying UAW, writing articles and was about to launch a few sites with that as my primary backlink strategy but it seems like thats not such a good idea anymore

Any feedback / links / conversation etc would be greatly appreciated

thanks

    Go with links that the Big G likes and diversify. Use press releases regularly, get a good mix of .edu and .gov links. Nowadays social signals are VERY improtant. Get the social media sphere sharing your content. It is social proof.

    But before all of that .... ONLY WRITE QUALITY CONTENT THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO SHARE EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T WRITE IT. Most website owners that have written quality content that is of value to the market place, have seldom been affected by Google so called slap.

      The "Backlinking Game" hasn't changed at all, just the strategies for those people who were doing it wrong to begin with. It's all about diversification and I know that everyone is probably getting tired of hearing that but that is really the truth. I don't understand how people can use a blog network for all of the backlinks to their money sites and expect this to be a failproof system for success??

      There are a ton of different ways of going about getting backlinks at this point in time, some are easier and more effective than others. Here is a few of the types of backlinks i actively seek for my sites that typically give good results and look natural to google

      -- Press Releases
      -- Article Syndication (cutting back on this but adds diversity)
      -- Web 2.0 (just a few for more diversity)
      -- Social Media / Bookmarking (facebook fan page is great, twitter, etc)
      -- Social Media buttons (Synnd is an option but don't overdo it!)
      -- guest blogging
      -- forum commenting (not profile links)
      -- .edu / .gov links
      -- wiki backlinks (just a couple - still testing this)
      -- occasional blog network link (USE SPARINGLY!!) - SEO link destiny etc.

      **And these are just a few of the options out there and the ones that i use the most. One a side note though, it is just as important to mix up the anchor text as getting good quality links. At this point, i don't recommend having your keyword in the anchor text for your backlink more than 10-20%. This just doesn't look natural to google. Try using your exact URL, a couple different key phrases, and even the occasion - click here or check this out. Google is catching on to keyword rich anchor texts.

      On a final note, make sure your content and on-page SEO is excellent. You won't have to work as hard on your off-page backlinking if you have good on-page backlinking and content. Just remember to look natural to google and you will do better than 95% of other IMers.

      By the way, throwing your keyword on your webage every 6 words doesn't look natural people!:rolleyes:

        Totally agree...Personally I wouldn't throw any Network Links in a backlink profile I was working on, especially after the March unnatural notices - but each to their own!

    If you can get a link from a certain source, go get it. Even if it's not as powerful, it'll add to your diversity. But you should mainly focus on quality web 2.0 properties and social signals (FB, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.). Also, use unique content! Trust me, it'll increase the effectiveness tenfolds.

      Many helpful suggestions there but all of them will fail unless you can ensure the backlinks you create collectively resemble a natural backlink profile.

      Diversifying will help but you also need to make sure that you are diversifying in a natural way. Simply diversifying is not something you can completely rely on.

      People want to believe that if they get a few links from here and there, mix it up and everything will be fine - wishful thinking.

      The problem is most people here have very little experience with natural sites and only know how to force their way to the top with bought or rented backlinks.

      Diversifying and Natural are not the same and unless your backlink profile appears natural then your site is at risk.

    I haven't had any negative ssues with any of my sites due to any Google updates because I market to real people, for real people. That is what Google wants. The updates are created to get rid of the "cheaters" who try to "game" the system with other methods and look relevant when they are not.

    Just use the long standing methods of marketing online that have always worked and still work and build a reputation for the long run with real people looking at your site and then you probably won't have to even worry about it.

    However, as is good business, also have different methods in which to reach your market so if one does change or a site goes away that you use, you will have other methods in place already.

    Is the new version of Google Panda is useful for seo or it is very strict with new rules ?
