Got an e-mail a few months back about all the great things Synnd were doing, including a special offer price so I thought I’d give it a 3 month trial. Big mistake.
I’m currently on holiday, this post comes to you all the way from sunny Spain where it’s about 33 Celsius in the shade and I’m a healthy shade of red. I’ve still got time to keep track of things though and I thought I’d share something I noticed over the last 10 days. Google have readjusted weightings again and it looks like exact match domains are back in favour big time.
Google were very explicit about this, having bad pages on your website will damage the reputation of the good stuff. One of the easiest ways of losing your rankings on your good pages is to have them share web space with crap pages.
Everybody knows that good quality links that help boost your search rankings are hard to come by? So when you read something about a service that offers to push you up the search results with almost no effort on your behalf it’s likely your bullshit detector will go off. I know mine did. Unfortunately for me a large part of this website is me spending my own cash to try things out so that you don’t have to, so I gave Linx Boss a go and you know what, it does everything it says! Better than that, it’s probably the best link service I’ve ever used.
When am I ever going to learn to deal with one project at a time?! I’m a fool unto myself. Anyway, here’s a quick update on how my essential checks have worked with the website I bought.
Considering how much effort goes into getting backlinks and traffic for your websites it never ceases to amaze me just how much “free” traffic people are chucking away. It’s not their fault, I just don’t think they are aware of how a few small changes can make a big difference. I’ve recently bought a new website, to be honest it’s the first website I’ve ever bought so the whole experience is a new one. These are some of the essential checks I’ve already done.
I think that everybody knows that how long you have owned your domain has some impact on your search rankings. Google has made this widely known and so every SEO expert has an opinion on it. What I would guess though is that most people don’t realise just HOW important domain age is, I know I didn’t until a recent example highlighted it to me.
Update:- I No Longer Recommend Free Traffic System
I stopped recommending Free Traffic System when I noticed some large discrepencies on the content they’d accept from free members compared to the junk content they were pumping out to blogs. If you’re looking for a Free Traffic System Alternative then I’d recommend either Article Marketing Robot or Unique Article Wizard.
Article Marketing Robot costs a one of payment of $97 (5 day free trial available) and is only for Windows PCs. Whilst article submission doesn’t have the weight it used to it is still effective and I use it a lot. Article Marketing Robot in particular works extremely well in gaining large amounts of links from respected directories with ease. It’s also very nice to see a one off payment for a linking tool!
Unique Article Wizard is still effective post Panda, it’s still one of the best article syndication networks out there and a lot more affordable than most at $67 a month. Do not even try to compare UAW to My Article Network and Free Traffic System, it’s in a different league.
I’ve tried a lot of “build back links and get traffic” systems in the past, it’s not very often I find one that actually works. It’s even less often I find one that works yet is 100% free. Free Traffic System is one such rarity!
