Default Some SEO Techniques

hello

Here are some SEO advices for beginners i can say.

First of all i am in this field for over 3 years. I can say that i don't like the time spent and that's why i hired someone. But before that here is what i have manage to learn:

1. Link Directories - Good only for PR (google case)
Example: I paid about 300$ for links on many directories, on PR3-5 pages. All good. When google crawled some of them the PR went to 1 or 2.
Conclusion - Don't waist your time too much and especially the money on those.

2. Social Bookmarking - 100 digs for some pages
Example: I had a Web 2.0 Design Tutorial website and got about 100 digs for some articles, technorati, del.icio.us and so on.
When checking backlinks digg.com showed only 5 of them.
Conclusion - Pretty good but make sure your article is 110% original.

3. Article Submission - 20 articles on "famous" article directories
Example: As i was writing the tutorials i thought "let's publish them".
Backlinks - very few after so much work

4. Link Exchange websites - Paid about 50$/monthly for 3 link exchange websites.
Example: I added my website to this websites and received about 400 links every month. I added a link exchange script with the "nofollow" attribute ON. I even added the disallow rule in .htaccess. All good so far.
After 3 months i got about 10 emails from different people asking me to remove their links because their sites were banned from Google.
Conclusion: Don't do this kind of link exchange.REALLY DON'T. Your link will end on a 100 link page which of course will end to banning from Google and who knows others too.

5. Paid Traffic - About 50$/monthly for as they said " 3000 unique visitors"
Example - Because i did not had the time to surf other websites i paid for this services.
Conclusion: Google Analytics was telling me that from 3000 visitors/monthly i got only 200 from that site.
Alexa was the only one who showed that i had heavy traffic. But if you don't pay for 1 month the Alexa rank will go down too. Don't waist your time with this.

Guess you found out the hard way.....

Most of those paid "magic" services are either frauds or ineffective....

Google's opinion of link exchanges and other "tricks" is very low and could damage your SERP.....

Most backlink checking software is very inaccurate.....

Alexa rank can be manipulated and really has no value among the real pros...

Never hurt to try,....but......
Study what others have done and save the money......))))))))))))

Paid traffic only has one purpose; to make it look like your site has more traffic than it really has, and you get nothing else from it.

JeremyB has taken the words out of my mouth.

I would not look at applying any SEO technique until I know my site was ready for it. Many sites seem to fall at the first hurdle by not optimising images or not having relevent content that is suitable. That is before you even consider the use of headers, title and meta information as well as getting indexed.

The trick to site building is simple.........and the reason why many sites fail....

Site building is a mechanical process...write code and it takes shape....

SEO on the other hand is more complex...not just the simple trash that the SEO wannabees post...but real SEO..

It starts with the first word of the site...
Too many build and then try to go back to do SEO...
Think about it..
Which came first...the chicken or the egg...??

Hello,
This surely seems like a hell lot of effort. So much info and so much conclusion and information. I have recently started SEO and trust me at times my mind just jumps.
But thanks for the info anyways.

Sounds like you have spent a lot of unnecessary money to me. It's good to see you have learnt from it, though. .
