Here's An SEO Tip That
Is Usually Missed
This may seem small but it can cost
Now listen up because this is important... When
you own a number of websites you will sometimes find yourself using the strength of one site to
link to another site. This can be a wonderful strategy BUT if you decide you want to do this, make
sure you only link from one page and NOT the entire website.
Here's what I
mean by that...
Recently, someone I personally know put
a link on one of his websites and had the link go to
another website that needed a boost.
website was producing a Google page rank of 3 where the other website was only producing a Google
page rank of just 1.
Now this is
not a bad strategy if you own a number of websites BUT the fatal error was...
He added the
link to the footer of the website... There were over 100 peges and the footer is part of all those
pages so effectively there was over 100 links from the same website and ALL the footers were
problem with this is that it can look very spammy to Google.
The next time
his websites were crawled he noticed the website producing the page rank of 3 dropped to a page
rank of just 1 and the other website staid the same page rank of 1. The first website also dropped
a number of pages in the Google rankings ultimately costing him money in lost
What's the lesson here?
from a website to another website you own, only link from one page on the website and no more. That
way it looks natural to Google and the other search engines.
important thing to note is that whenever you are linking from one website to another the theme must
be related. Example. link from a dog website to a website about dog food... Do not link from a dog
website to a website about fish.
