If you only follow a few hundred people on Twitter, it’s relatively easy to see what they post and keep up-to-date with their content. Likewise, if you only have around two hundred followers, you can quite easily see their comments on your content and who has taken the time to react and share it.

I know I might get lynched for this idea, but I feel that I need to put it out there. You don’t have to be a veteran of online marketing forums and internet marketing blogs to get the very distinct impression that almost everybody and his dog are focused on views. People are obsessed with basically driving as much traffic to their websites and generating views.
Well, it had to happen sometime. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you probably have heard that Penguin 3.0 just rolled out. Hopefully, you just heard about it instead of feeling the painful effects of this Google algorithm update. Make no mistake about it: Regardless of how much Google likes to downplay its impact, Penguin 3.
Unless you have been hiding under a rock, or worse, smoking rocks, you would know that Google Panda 4.1 is out. A lot of people either get excited about Panda, or they get really scared. If you think back a few years ago, Panda really caught a lot of people by surprise. Previously high-flying websites that produce horrendous content and didn’t really care about their readers go ...

I know as a busy blogger you probably are thinking ‘well, a picture is just a picture.‘ You might be thinking that as long as you put pictures with your blog post you are doing well. Well I’m sorry to break it to you but simply picking out random pictures and slapping them next to your blog post is not going to help you achieve your objectives.
We all know the value article directories, like EzineArticles, has been eroding over the past few years. No longer can you publish an EzineArticle with an outgoing link and rank instantly. It was only a question of time until their value, from an SEO perspective, is completely gone. However, things have gotten much worse than I originally anticipated.
If you have been paying attention to the latest SEO gossip, you would be aware that it is rumoured that Google will be updating their Penguin update soon. This is a big deal. As you probably already know, a lot of websites got their rear-ends kicked into place by Google Penguin and a lot of the old grey hat tricks no longer work to boost your position in the SERPs.

Anybody can write a piece of content nowadays. In fact, you only need to go to Fiverr, spend a few bucks with a writer from India, and you have yourself a half decent piece of content that took no effort. The problem is not the amount of money you spend on the content, it is not even the amount of time you spend on the content, it is the concept behind the content that truly matters.
One of the biggest hassles with the Google Penguin update is the fact that if you got dinged by that update, it’s very hard to get out of that penalty hole. I’ve worked with and spoken to SEO clients that got penalized by Penguin right after Penguin came out and they can’t seem to get out of that penalty box.
In the world of online marketing, gurus come and go. Seriously. A lot of the gurus and internet marketing geniuses out there are really just online media creations. In many cases, it only takes a few talking heads or a few influential people throwing the same names around for people to get the impression that these names are really worth following. Let us face it.
I do not want to lie and say that I saw it coming, but it would be nice to say that I did see it coming. However, I did get the impression that Google authorship was unsustainable.

Have you ever been to a high school party? You would notice that the very popular people are in the dance floor, cutting up the rug, having a good time. You can also see the party animals near the refreshment tables, telling jokes, making people laugh, and having a great time.
