- Building links by Xrumer is dead. If you have huge amount of profile backlinks you are either deindexed or get slapped real bad.
- Building bookmarking links is dead. Huge number of bookmarks in a short time results a penalty.
- Blog networks are TOTALLY dead. Blog networks were hit by the panda update but this time they are even hit worse. Even private networks are hit. If you spin content and distribute to blogs you get deindexed.
- Article networks are dead. If you spin articles and distribute to article networks you will get deindexed or slapped hard.
- Anything related to spinning is dead.
- Any method that brings huge number of backlinks in a short time is dead.
1- Do not buy anything SEO related till things get cleared. Seems like almost all SERP manipulating methods are dead.
2- Spend your time thinking about other traffic sources other than Google.
3- Focus on your product/services/offers.
4- Consider purchasing sites who are already ranked well about your niche. It might look expensive but if you consider the time and effort you spend on seo it might be a good idea. There are many people who does not know the real value of their sites. Make a search on your favorite keyword, contact the site owners directly and try to negotiate.
5- Do not buy any SEO related tools. They simply do not work after this update.
6- Buy traffic from Google adwords. Spend your time on keyword analysis to lower CPC.
7- Consider non-google platforms to market your products such as Ebay and Amazon.
