How Duplicate Content Affects Website Ranking, Domain Authority And SEO

Buzzword Bingo: Duplicate Content

(Photo credit: planeta)

Google has an obligation to give a searcher with the best search experience. It’s frustrating when these searchers look for information and find it’s almost similar or same. Google looks at this content, whether served on the same domain or on different ones, as a duplicate and has heavy penalties for the same.

There is no definite penalty for duplicate content, when the intention behind duplicating is to manipulate the algorithms or act maliciously. This is a judgment algorithm you have no control over. Dealing with duplicate content on your website ensures that you are not vulnerable to this judgment.

The real result of duplicate content is decreased visibility. When you have low visibility, your ranking gets hurt and as a result, bad SEO results. Duplicates also trigger lower crawl rates which is also related to lower indexing and visibility in search. As such, dealing with duplicate content once and for all is the best strategy. Read More

Successful linkbuilding is one of the keys to high quality SEO and utilizing the best SEO linkbuilding strategies available can help you increase the ranking of your blog or website in the search engine results pages or “SERPs” very quickly.

Today, we’re going to explain five great strategies for building high quality, relevant links.

Blog Commenting

Depending on your approach and intent, one of the best ways to build many high quality, relevant backlinks to your website or blog is by blog commenting. Blog commenting is not only a great way to share valuable information and opinions on other blogs, it’s also an easy way to leave your URL and have a permanent backlink.

When blog commenting, it’s important to focus on the pagerank of the particular blog post you’re commenting on, as a post with a high pagerank will definitely give your link more link juice and authority. A word of warning though, this method has been abused by many in the blog spamming habit. It’s important to research your target site, and post regular comments to build up a relationship with the site owner, instead of just relying on your links to have any value by themselves.

You may have noticed that the SEO game has become a lot more difficult lately… Mostly due to the recent algorithm updates like the Penguin and, like always, due to the ever-growing competition for valuable keywords.

However, some things remain unchanged. For instance, you still need to find a way to let Google know which keywords you’re targeting.

The fact is that Google can figure this out on their own, kind of (through links, and social media interaction), but introducing some good on-page SEO can make things a lot quicker.

You have to be careful, though. Google now openly admits that they discourage all forms of active link building, and probably any other type of active SEO work as well.

So how to overcome this and not get in trouble? Read More

How to Succeed as a Blogger – 4 Tips Everyone Should Know

There are as many reasons to get into blogging as there are people with blogs.  Heck, some folks (myself included) try to maintain more than one blog for various niches and specializations.

The Secret To A Hugely Successful Website – People

When you build a website or write an article for that website, or even change the colour of the backgrounds it’s important to remember who you are doing it for – in other words the people. Sure you’ve heard it all before: ‘write for people not Google’ right? Well hear me out because that’s not really what I’m talking about here. You see the problem with writing ‘for people’ is that often those people are rather dehumanized by the whole process. It’s a step up if you’re writing to entertain and not just to please an algorithm or a ‘robot’ – but don’t you think ‘people’ is really a rather broad term? The question I want you to really ask yourself is what people?

BLOG IDEAS

This is a common question among bloggers and online business owners. If you’re a blogger then publishing new posts is essentially what you do. For an online business owner it’s a side task, but it’s still crucial for achieving any kind of success.

 

No matter what you’re using your site for, publishing new posts/entries/articles is what keeps the site up-to-date. Visitors like content that’s up-to-date, Google likes content that’s up-to-date, your business partners like to see that your content is, again, up-to-date. Essentially, having up-to-date content is what makes you seem professional. By the way, how many times can you use “up-to-date” in a single paragraph?

 

However, there’s always one question that arises whenever the topic of blogging gets mentioned: How often should you post? Read More
