What's the Fuzz Around Black Hat SEO?

What's the Fuzz Around Black Hat SEO?
Right after the search engine (it was called Archie) appeared online, people began to realize the true power of a search engine to be used worldwide. In 1998 Google appeared on the scene and quickly began winning millions of supporters worldwide. With so many users, many webmasters began to ask themselves what are the ways to get good traffic from those search engines. So this is how it all started. At first many webmasters began to manipulate their website's code and content to take advantage of the growing popularity of Google. At the very beginning, almost everyone used Black Hat SEO techniques such as keyword stuffing the META tags and titles.

In addition to that, doing only comment spam can be quite risky, especially if you are not getting really good links to your website.  Now you probably wonder - Is there another way to get .edu links and not risk a penalty from Google (or have to travel 10000 miles to get them).

How to Make Your Keywords Traffic Friendly

How to Make Your Keywords Traffic Friendly

What I like most about this approach is that in the end I get long tail keywords that have almost no competition and decent search volume. To make this clearer, here is how to generate a lot of relevant keyword ideas for your website content. The first place to look for keywords is your website. To get some good keyword suggestions, a good place to start is Ranks.nl. This website has been aroung for a lot of time and it can be quite useful to get a quick overview of the keywords you need for the particular page. The tool you need for that purpose is called Page Analyzer. With it, you will get a list with keywords grouped by the number of words. The best thing about this tool is that it is free.                           Although, you will get a lot of keyword ideas, most of them will be absolutely irrelevant to your page, so you...
