So Does Out Bound Linking to the wrong sites
Hurting your rankings of your website?

This is a quick Tip on link building tips. Start out with your blog link out to sites that are relevant to what your site is about this can give an extra boost before you start building links to your site.

From My Experience the sites your linking out on your blogroll aka your outbound links on your sidebar can affect your site?  I believe it does you don’t want to link out spam type sites. I usually like linking out in general to sites that are relevant to what your site is about. Sometimes this can be difficult but that little bit of effort can make a difference on how Google looks at your your site.

Don’t take my word for it This is a video from Matt Cutts taking about Blog Rolls aka Outbound Links in your website.

 So in my humble opinion it’s important that you do some extra research when you are linking out to different site. I personally don’t like link exchanges in general but there are a few that are useful if done the right way.

Are Footer Links Treated Differently than Links in paragraphs aka in context? I love how he dances around the issue but he does answer it. Yes They Treat them differently as a matter of fact in context links get a higher score than footer links so keep that in mind when building your sites.  I also use a tool that makes my internal and external linking very easy to do, plus it saves me a lot of time. It’s a wordpress plugin called Push Button Seo I love it use it on all my sites. 

This is an age old question that people ask all the time. If you gonna do either use dashes. As an Example mariosotojr.com/internet-marketing-tips
I rather do that. As for the domain itself I don’t use dashes in my domain name itself.

    I got slammed by Google Panda myself aswell…

    I've recently been searching for ways around the Google Panda update and I conducted alot of testing on my own websites.

    Here are several key points to look for:

    1) minimize bouncerate on your web sites

    2) delete/nofollow/noindex thin and low quality web pages

    3) increase Click Through Rate in the search results (E.g implement crazy call to actions and stuff on your page titles)

    4) provide much more value on your site (increase visitors onpage time)

    5) interlink your site through optimized anchor texts

    6) use a privacy policy, bulletpoints, paragraphs, subtiles, images, address/phone number, SSL, google maps location, contact us, about us etc etc (all "achievable" extra quality elements you can think of)

    7) Achieve more quality links with good anchor text variation.

    Linkbuilding should be done in a very diverse and steady approach.

    Another thing, I'm a beta tester of LinkALoha at the moment and I am seeing GREAT results. I think they are going to open a couple new spots shortly, you guys should take a look. Those guys are awesome
