these, such as Google adwords and other ppc advertising programs, come
at a cost - a cost which has to be carefully controlled if you are to
have any chance of making a profit from your Internet marketing
What we all
really want is to build and sustain a reliable source of FREE
and that usually means one thing - our websites need to get to the top
(or close to the top) of page one of Google's search results for the
(preferably high volume) keywords that we are
But as we
all know, that is far easier said than done.
Popular is Your
One of the metrics that Google and the other
search engines have always taken into account when determining
a website's position in their search results listings is the popularity of the
website. And the traditional way of doing
this was to look at the number of links pointing back to the website -
the logic being that the more "popular" the website the greater the
number of times that others would link to it from other
And if the links came from prestigious top quality
websites then so much the better, since this implied that the quality
of the content in the target website was in itself pretty good, which
would encourage Google to give it a good ranking.
It didn't take long for website publishers and
their agents to cotton on to this fact, and before long SEO
entrepreneurs were creating automated or semi-automated software whose
function was to help build large quantities of back-links from link
directories and other web properties.
Now that is all very well, but it goes completely
against the grain of what Google for one are trying to
achieve. The main aim of Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search
engines is to provide their users with a pleasurable and useful
browsing experience. They have no interest, and nor should
they, in rewarding publishers for their industry in building huge
quantities of links to their websites - links which say nothing about
the quality of the material that a visitor will find there.
It came as no real surprise therefore when Google
came at us with their now famous (or is it 'infamous') Panda
what is Panda and
what is Penguin exactly ?
The expressions Panda and Penguin
refer to two
separate changes to the algorithms that Google uses to determine a
website's position (or rank) in its search results listings.
Panda, which was released in early 2011,
was all about removing or demoting low quality websites which, in
Google's view, have little to offer the visitor - and conversely
promoting those which are perceived as having something really valuable
to offer. The net result was a sharp rise in the fortunes of
news websites and social networking sites, and a drop in rankings for
sites which contain a lot of advertising.
Penguin algoritm update was released early in 2012, and
its aim was to lower the search engine
rankings of websites which violate Google's Webmaster Guidelines in one
way or another. These include the building of backlinks by
artificial means - in other words, building backlinks using techniques
which have no bearing on the quality of the website content and
which do not therefore reflect a natural organic flow of human visitors
to the site.
Now this is all very well, but as we all know
creating good quality content from a standing start is not in itself
going to bring a surge of human traffic to anyone's website anytime
no matter how good a job we do. It takes time for our website
to get noticed, and time is a commodity that none of us have a great
So what is the ambitious webmaster supposed to do
about this ?
What options does he/she have to accelerate the
process of website promotion ?
do you really have to do to get large volumes of good
quality traffic to your website ?
Well, one approach is to create linking patterns
which mimic the natural organic surfing habits of human
beings. One of the most popular and successful strategies for
doing this involves a networking concept known as the "link wheel".
In a link
wheel network links flow in one
direction from one website to another in a circular pattern as if they
were all situated on the rim of a wheel. However, each
website also contains a single link to the target website that requires
promotion. The target website is effectively situated at the
centre or "hub" of the wheel, and the links which lead to it can be
likened to the spokes of the wheel. The net result is that
the target website receives a large number of incoming links, resulting
in more exposure to the search engines.
In the early days, link wheels
made up of a
series of articles, or content websites, written in such a way as to
target the same keyword, or keyword phrase, as that used in the website
that needed promoting. Each of these articles would contain
one anchor text link to the next article on the rim of the wheel plus
the single and very important link to the targeted website at the
centre of the wheel.
The problem with this simple regular pattern is
that it stands out like a sore thumb, and is easily spotted and
recognised for what it is by the Google spiders. Why should
that be a problem you might ask ?
Well, simply because Google still tends to view
link wheels with a degree of suspicion, regarding them as yet another
device for milking undeserved link juice.
and Improved Link
professionals have found a way around
this problem by incorporating more subtlety into the structure of link
For one thing, they don't just link articles
together anymore. The modern advanced
a mix of article submissions, blog posts, web 2.0 properties, press
releases, social media websites, forum posts, and other entities.
Furthermore, the linking strategy will usually
include a single gap or break in the "rim" of the wheel, as well as
delayed or staggered submissions.
This randomisation of the linking process conveys
the impression of natural "organic" link building - and natural
"organic" link building is looked on favourably by search engines when
indexing and ranking websites.
If you are to have any hope of getting large
volumes of traffic to your website, you have to seriously consider
building a link wheel
strategy into your portfolio of SEO
methods. This is especially true if you are operating in
highly competitive areas such as weight loss, dating, or making money
what are the Options
If you do decide to bite the bullet, you really
have a couple of options at your disposal:
You can do it all yourself - that way it
needn't cost you any money.
However, you are giving yourself hours of arduous
research and tedious time-consuming work.
You can get an idea of just how complex an
operation it is to set up a link wheel that will get your website
ranked high with the search engines by checking out Neil Ferree's
brilliant blog on the subject - here is the link for that: Link
Web 2.0 by Neil
If you ARE going
to create your own link wheels, it is important to remember that you
need to structure your linking patterns in such a way as to resemble
the natural surfing habits of human beings, so as NOT
to arouse the suspicions of Googlebot and
the other search engine spiders. As we have already
indicated, this really does require subtlety and expertise - so you
need to do your research in order to get the expert knowledge
that you will need to accomplish this successfully.
