Hey kids! Guest post time! Today we have a penguin based rant via Chris Dyson one of the smartest UK SEO’s going and fellow CEO of Link Builder Awareness Day.
I don’t always like to swear when writing my blog posts but sometimes I have to. I was brought up in a northern town so we have a terrible grasp of our native tongue plus swearing (cussing) makes you look big & clever.
I think there’s a study on some social media blog that shows a high correlation between number of swears & number of shares somewhere…probably?
Anyway as you can tell this is another angry northerner with a gripe. I’m absolutely sick of all these “post-penguin” safe link building tactics/strategy posts.
They offer nothing new, no science, no data just unfounded claims based on 8 years as an SEO that blog comments & social bookmarks are Penguin-friendly.
You’re an expert on a f***ing algorithm update that rolled out less than 6 months ago? GTFOH!!!
If you are contemplating hitting publish on your next post-penguin link building article then please stop and wait for a minute and complete this brief survey.
- Do you have a case study?
- Do you have some REAL data to share?
- Can you swear on your mother’s grave you are not just writing a post because all the big kids are doing it?
If you can answer yes to these 3 points then please feel free to hit publish.
None of us are 100% on Penguin recovery & survival yet.
- We know it’s to do with links
- We know there are correlations with over use of anchor text
- We know blog networks & low quality directories are being deindexed
But right now not one of us are 100% qualified to say what does or does not work all the time, every time.
If you want to learn from some real link building pro’s then go follow Ross Hudgens, Jon Cooper, Jason Acidre or James Agate on Twitter.
Please feel free to rant in the comments I’m off to get a beer.
