Article Samurai Opens Again – Should You Buy?

Market not Article Samurai

Market Samurai is a good product, Article Samurai is — NOT!!!

Hi guys and gals, I just got the ‘priority email’ aka ‘don’t miss this super-duper chance that comes around only once in your lifetime (Not!)’ that Article Samurai opens again and that begs the question: Should you buy it or NOT!? Like I wrote in my previous post here >Article Samurai or Spamurai?‘ I consider this type of internet marketing and attempt at SEO sooo pre-Panda! And no, imho, save your money also this time round and don’t buy it! Why you ask? I still hold to what I stated previously:

Cheap article marketing, especially one that uses / promotes, spun content, is an absolute No-No since the latest Panda / Farmer Update that Google implemented.

Methods like this add no value whatsoever to your own websites nor to the internet as . . . → Read More: Article Samurai Opens Again – Should You Buy?

Why You Should Use Pinterest

Pinterest Logo and Favicon

Pinterest – Click image to follow me there …

So, ok, I have never been an early adopter when it comes to this whole social media stuff. It took me ages to get on Facebook, my LinkedIn profile is still not filled out and I haven’t got the hang out of G+ yet. So what do I do on Pinterest? And what the heck is Pinterest actually? Basically Pinterest is a site that lets you bookmark websites in a visually appealing way πŸ˜‰ by pinning what interests you to one or more boards you have created. Plus it offers the usual network possibility of friends, following etc. The last one comes with a twist, you can either follow all of the boards a person has created or only a selection. This is great if you come across a weirdo like me that has boards . . . → Read More: Why You Should Use Pinterest

Keyword Strategy Tips 1 – How To Clean Up a Messed Up, sorry, an Established Site

Keyword Strategy Welcome Screen

Lets face it, we all have them, sites that we love, that are old, at least in the terms of the internet, and that don’t perform as we think they should in the SERPentines. Or you have a site that used to do well, but suffered during the last panda updates. Reason being for both is that these sites come from the times when we haven’t had a clue about how to write reader-focused and keyword-focused content at the same time. If your site targets the same keyword with multiple posts, also called overlapping content, this can give it the look of a ‘content farm’ in Google’s eyes! There are two ways of solving this dilemma, ditch the site and start from scratch or try to save the site taking advantage of the content that is already indexed and ranking. . . . → Read More: Keyword Strategy Tips 1 – How To Clean Up a Messed Up, sorry, an Established Site

Keyword Tool Down! What Now?

Google revoked access to their Adwords API for literally hundreds of developers and applications on the 12th September. Here is what Google said about this:

β€œWe have done this to ensure quality, improve Google products and services and compliance with Adwords API Terms and Conditions.”

Developers have to reapply for their tokens and it can take 5 to 6 weeks before they are re-approved, if they are, that’s it! My personal suspicion is that Google did this to reduce the amount of webspam created with this kind of tools, you know, the good old ‘find profitable keyword, buy exact match domain, write some crappy content and promote the heck out of it’ approach. I really doubt that Google is eager that the information that is meant for Adwords advertisers is used in this way, but that might just me being suspicious …

Seems Google went Primal ;-)

Internet marketers and SEO specialists have learned over the last few days a hard lesson: It is not a human right to get your site ranked favorably by Google πŸ˜‰ The IM community was buzzing since the latest search algorithm update, both with gossip, as well as with interpretations. Here a few voices (links will open in new tab): The Gentle Grizzly from far up north stresses two points: Suspicious link profiles (often obtained via content farms and article directories) and notoriously spammy niches, such as payday loans, weight loss etc that can bring danger to your website.

The less gentle Mark Knowles criticizes the lower quality of the search results AFTER the update with this pungent hub β€œHelp Google is Broken” And he is right, even before the mayhem and uproar on the forums broke loose, I already noticed that Google’s search results have gotten . . . → Read More: Seems Google went Primal πŸ˜‰
