Despite August being the holiday/vacation time, a lot has happened this month.
For this month’s round up on SEO Jo Blogs, I am going to focus on link building. The post to kick this off is the one by Julie Joyce on Search Engine Watching, giving the Link Building A – Z Guide Definition Terms. If you have questions about link building before you read this, you certainly won’t after.
Guest Posting when done correctly is good for SEO
Grant Draper from VibeTech Media wrote an interesting post on searchenginepeople earlier this month about how to get the benefit of guest posting with Google’s blessing. With the recent algo updates, webmasters may be scared about accepting guest posts. But they should not be if the content is relevant to the site and it has not been written just for the sake of it, with a link back. It is more important to have relevant content rather than getting a link from a high PR page (which used to help sites rank). If you are having guest posts on your site, make sure you set the guidelines, such as the length, the number of links within the body, the rights to the images and ask writers reply to comments.
Webmasters should also be outreaching to those who already writing about their products/services but not linking to them.
