Google’s Love Affair with Authority and How You Can Leverage It!

In short, Google’s love affair with authority sites is based on the premise of reciprocity, relevance and commercial viability. It’s no secret, that Google’s search engine algorithms are stacked in favor of quality content and authoritative websites.

Google Loves Authority Sites

Google’s Love Affair with Authority Sites

Protecting the integrity of that love affair can have harsh consequences for those on the fringes or gray areas as Google updates their index.

One must consider, that if a higher echelon of quality presides in Google’s index from Google being more selective or downright finicky about “which types of websites are algorithmically endowed” or quality rater approved, the more relevant and / or commercially viable Google’s dominion becomes when it’s time to monetize that traffic.

This is a post covering two glaring and mutually important topics, the first being how search engine algorithms can dramatically impact your business through “corrections” designed to improve quality control and relevance and the other part leaning towards what you can do to insulate yourself from changes to algorithms by creating an authoritative online presence.

What Is Google’s Greatest Fear?

With millions of business owners, webmasters and affiliates spending thousands of dollars on SEO and countless hours optimizing their websites (only to have Google organic search results shaken up or completely whisked away due to vacillating shifts from new algorithm changes) is genuinely creating feelings of anger, frustration and disdain.

Google Greatest Fear

Google’s greatest fear is you not using or needing to use Google…

As if running a business wasn’t hard enough, business owners are now forced to deal with the rise and fall of search engine results (knowing that at any time aside from ruthless competitors targeting their most coveted positions that a new algorithm change could come along and potentially sweep all their progress under the rug) without warning.

The only solution is to either (1) conform or (2) diversify your traffic sources to become less dependent on any one source of visitors, however, most are either unwilling or unaware of their options, so they continue to run on the treadmill in hope of stability.

Forget These 3 SEO Myths

Looking back at the state of SEO and I’ve seen allot since 1995 when I started doing it, there are often myths proliferated in the SEO space that for lack of better terms are better off silenced by empirical data but continue to propagate to ridiculous proportions. In this post, let’s look at 3 SEO myths you are better off forgetting, ignoring or whichever politically correct term preferred that still have value when used in the proper context.

Gold Adam

In essence, there are three things, 1) things that work 2) things that people all talk about and 3) things that work that nobody talks about. I prefer the third, because as soon as people start sharing what really works, it’s only a matter of time before it’s filtered out, penalized or potentially compromised.

Looking from the outside in (in my experience) at what all the chatter is about or what’s the latest nugget of what Matt Cutts is discussing or how many penalties are out there does nothing to further the search engine optimization space (which is why we won’t even bother joining such speculation).

I’d rather be that quiet guy with a few hundred test sites who sifts through data to put the strategies in perspective through a battery of litmus tests to determine what is quietly conquering the SEO fear uncertainty and doubt based gargantuan Google menaces that are constantly being regurgitated in an attempt of classic misdirection.

In that light, let’s revisit some of the more notable myths. Continue reading “Forget These 3 SEO Myths” »

SEO Ultimate Version 7.6.3.1 Released

It came to our attention that after we published the last version update for SEO Ultimate 7.6.2 that some users had experienced data loss for some or all of the title tag rewriter and code inserter settings from 7.6.1.

The first thought, “this is tragic”, and rightfully so, however thankfully, this should be fixed in the new version 7.6.3.1 as 7.6.2 was practically creating parallel options instead of referring to the legacy settings in the wp_options table (whew).

Major Update to SEO Ultimate, Version 7.6.2 is Now Available

Today we’re releasing a major update for SEO Ultimate (7.6.2) and despite the minor numeric version change vs. a jump to say version 7.7,  our new lead developer Aleksandar rewrote vast swaths of the core code (as many of the older features were written way back in the in PHP 4 days and needed to fast-forward to present).

We will also be rolling out additional features shortly (additional rich snippet options and media uploader tweaks for sharing your content from the page level) and even more user-interface enhancements to expedite work-flow.
