  • Link Building
    By on March 14th, 2009 | 11 Comments11 Comments Comments

    In every webmaster forum and blog out there, the community always goes nuts over finding ways to get universities and government sites to link to you. This post is dedicated to helping those people save their money and allow them to get an unlimited amount of .edu and .gov links for free, all through the power of google!

    The ’site:’ feature in Google allows only results with that domain name or domain extension to show up. You can “hack” this feature to allow Google to find the most relevant university and government websites related to your sites.

    Examples:
    Google query: site:.gov blog [or site:.edu blog]
    Results in: Google finds any .gov website that is running a blog or has a /blog/ directory. You can then visit these blogs and post comments (if you can find wordpress blogs like this one), and get hundreds of free .gov backlinks.
    [Alternative queries: 'blog' 'blogs' 'wordpress' 'comment' 'guestbook' '2007' '2006']

    Google query: site:.edu *your niche* + blog
    For example: site:.edu internet marketing blog
    The top result is a .edu blog that links to a non edu blog, but that blog is related and is PR3 and has edu backlinks. That is also a great relevant place to comment, even if it is not directly a .edu. On the other hand, the third result was a PR3 highly related .edu internet marketing blog with zero comments. That is easy .edu backlinks!

    You can easily replicate these queries to fit your needs, and it is highly scalable. You can find .edu, .gov, and if you are lucky, .mil blogs. If you are not as picky, you can just search specifically for the blogs without the .edu or .gov extension, and you can find some high pageranked blogs on the first pages of results. Play around with it, enjoy it, it’s free!

  • Adding meta tags to blogger
    By on March 13th, 2009 | 5 Comments5 Comments Comments

    1.Sign in to your blogger dashboard>click the ‘layout’ button

    2.Click on the ‘Edit html’ tab

    Here is the code you have to add

    <meta content=’AUTHOR NAME HERE’ name=’author’/>

    DESCRIPTION HERE:Write your blog description
    KEYWORDS:Write the keywords of your blog
    AUTHOR NAME:Write the author’s name(Your name)

    3.Add the above code just after this

    <b:include data=’blog’ name=’all-head-content’/>

    Don’t forget to add description and keywords.
    and save the changes.

    IMPORTANT:

    Several people were filling with just the keywords in the description.DON’T DO THAT.Google and other search engines will ban your site from the search engines list if you did so.And also,don’t repeat the keyword more than 3 times.

    That’s it!You have sucessfully added the metatags to your blogger(blogpsot) blog.If you want to check whether you added the meta tags correctly or not,just type ‘meta tags analyzer tool’ in the google and you will find so many sites which can check whether you have added the tags correctly or not.

  • Google Sandbox
    By on February 27th, 2009 | 102 Comments102 Comments Comments

    The Google sandbox is a concept that has been coined to describe the effect that new websites have in Google’s search results.

    New websites do not behave in the same way in Google’s search results as older, more established websites. It seems that Google is less inclined to rank newer websites until they have proven themselves and gone through a probationary period. This seems to be a period of 90 to 120 days.

    This is not to say that everything you do is pointless within this time, it just means that your efforts will probably be put on hold until this period has passed.

    The Google sandbox could be used by Google for many things other than just new websites. Google could also use this for websites that it believes are not playing fair or that have suddenly gained large numbers of inward links.

    If you have a new website you should make your changes and optimize your website gradually. This includes building links to your website. You should try to build links slowly over time instead of adding a hundred in one sitting. This sudden spike of inward links could cause you problems. It would look unnatural, as links are not normally achieved this fast.

    There are several ways you can deal with the Google sandbox and its effects. including:

    * Use an existing older domain name instead of buying a new one.
    * Build links slowly over time
    * Optimize your website slowly
    * In the early days, concentrate on other search engines
    * Utilize pay per click (PPC) for your initial placement

    The Google sandbox effect is not a recognized algorithm by Google, it is just a phrase to describe the effect often seen with new websites that have only recently been found by Google.

  • How to get backlinks from .edu sites ?
    By on February 27th, 2009 | 5 Comments5 Comments Comments

    Everyone wants to make Backlink

    Here we go: Just go to google search engine and enter the code below:

    site:.edu inurl:blog “comment” -”you must be logged in” -”posting closed” -”comment closed” “keyword”

    Where it says keyword put the keyword you want to search for to match your site.

    Now to break this down a bit it will sort through all the .edu blogs and only pull ones that allow a comment and match your keyword. As you see we had it take out the blogs that were closed for comments, ones that required you log in, and posting closed.

    There you have it, now get to work and start getting some quality .edu backlinks.

    Hope you all like this post :)
