The Deep Link Engine WordPress plugin was released back in March as part of the launch for a product “Auto Content Cash” by Brian G Johnson, Jared Croslow and Alex Goad.
I am sure some of this post is going to blow people’s brains, though this is only the tip of the iceberg.
WordPress Comment Solutions
Shaun almost a month ago released a modified version of Lucia’s Linky Love that removes links from comments rather than nofollow them as a partial solution to Google’s changes to PageRank distribution in regards nofollow.
This post was originally titled “Is PageRank Sculpting Dead & Can Comments Kill Your PageRank”
Following a confirmation post from Google’s Matt Cutts today, it seems PageRank Sculpting as practiced by many SEOs is effectively dead, and comments, even using links with nofollow CAN have a negative effect on the amount of PageRank that can be passed on to your internal pages.
Whilst the test I performed over the last few days isn’t ideal, recently, just for a few days I actually switched off my email subscriptions.
Email subscriptions has never accounted for the largest percentage of my subscribers, but I have always recognised them among my most responsive readers. I assure you the decision wasn’t taken lightly, especially with a number of major launches to write about which were highly targeted to my core audience.
What a difference 24 hours make.
A few days ago I was honestly prepared to rip a product to shreds. It wasn’t that it was a bad product, but it wasn’t as well prepared as it should have been, and from what I can tell it was due to an honest communication error between a well respected online marketer and his programming team.
John Andrews currently has the top rated article on Sphinn with a truly brilliant display of link baiting and social media awareness.
I am not sure I am going to be able to knock him off the top spot, and this very post will probably gain him a few more votes, but I would like to think that one of my older articles could at least be a contender.
How many SEO blogs actually write original content?
I am not talking about original words, but original ideas which can be based either on experience from experimentation or what I would describe as reasoned theory?
Experience based on following conventional wisdom just doesn’t count – you only need to read one SEO blog for accepted best practice, it doesn’t really matter which one of the mainstream SEO blogs you choose. You might choose a few more for industry news with differing opinion.
