Link Building: You’re Doing it Wrong pt. 2 - Work with NOT FOR Google

Link Building: You’re Doing it Wrong pt. 2

This is part 2 of the series don’t miss part one:  Link Building: You’re Doing it Wrong+VIDEO


In the first episode we covered how you’re doing it wrong when you hire MOST off shore contractors to build your back links.

If you ever bothered searching online you’ll find tons of offshore contractors that promise anyone the world but all they end up doing is pulling a Caren Smocker” on people.


If it can happen to Edmunds.com who “She” was working for, don’t think it can’t happen to you.

Edmunds is only in the top 1900 out of 640 million+ websites.

It doesn’t mean they don’t know what they’re doing

It just proves it can happen to anyone.


The #2 reason you’re building links wrong:  You’re leaving it all up to an SEO company.

I hate to bust you’re bubble if you work for some SEO company but you know it’s true, it might be bad news for your business module but it’s true.

The truth of the matter is I’d bet $1 dollar that Edmunds hired a professional SEO company and ended up getting “Caren Smocker”.


See what I mean.


This is why you must understand what Google is saying about back links and try to drown out the “noise” that you hear from these “professional” SEO companies.

Did you notice a trend about links?

Google no like link spammers and they seem dead set on stopping anyone trying to manipulate search results by using “unnatural” techniques. 


When it comes to Link building remember, Talk is cheap but results, they cost.


I know some people may say that this is a negative anti-SEO post, to that I say:

  • You heard the man.  Don’t be mad at me be mad at him he works at Google, I’m just a blogger squirrel looking for a click.
  • If SEO companies could really provide the amazing results they claim why don’t they just sell affiliate products all day?  Do you know how much money you can make ranking #1 for popular search terms like “BUY IPHONE 6″ and “DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 8″?  Why don’t they just go and rank #1 hot terms all day?


I know some people may say that I’m a Hypocrite because I myself offer SEO promotional services, to that I say:

  • My services are exactly like what Matt Cutts is talking about above. I create high quality content that readers want to read so search engines want to find.  Quality > Quantity.
  • You don’t have to hire me to get the benefits of what I know.  You can subscribe and get Your Online Business Plan and tons of great tips for free.  All you have to do is use them.  Too busy, don’t have time? Yes, I’ll help you out.


The moral of the story.  

As Flava Flav said, Don’t believe the hype. 

For high quality results you need high quality content and it takes time to create this.  No you can’t get a quality article for $5 but you could end up  submitting a reconsideration request to the Google Webmaster team because your blog got attacked by one of their dangerous algorithm animals like Panda and Penguin.

Remember, if some SEO company is promising you the moon and stars get verifiable proof of all the back links that you pay for, If they can’t provide proof, FIRE THEIR ASS, they probably hired Caren Smocker and are pocketing the difference.

That’s what I had to do when I canned the Unique Article Wizard, no proof no money, if I wanted to be someone’s sucker I would have stayed in corporate America, lol.



Now it’s over to you.

Are you doing it wrong?  What is your strategy for building “back links”?

  1. I agree with you on some of the link building strategies. Personally I’ve never done, nor wanted to do, any link building except through blogging and blog commenting. I do SEO as well, as you know, but it’s just like yours, through content enhancement and better coding practices.

    It’s never been that SEO isn’t important, but it’s also not that SEO can guarantee ending up in the #1 position. What it can do is give people the opportunity to compete for business; can’t ask for more than that.

    • The Google webmaster series keeps alerting the public that these “seo tricks” won’t work but these companies and some bloggers keep running their game.

      It’s hilarious.

      I tested one of these article marketing products that was designed to generate a ton of links for SEO benefit and I was very disappointed.

      Since I CANNED UAW I’ve been seeing steady progress by just focusing on the fundamentals. The growth hasn’t been earth shattering like that Russian meteor but I’ve been growing at a steady rate and I’ve NEVER been penalized by any of Google’s dangerous animals. lOL
