The renewed push by big trucking and shipper groups for longer combination vehicles ? or LCVs ? has OOIDA leaders questioning where they are all going to park. OOIDA?s Director of Regulatory Affairs Joe Rajkovacz said that if Congress passes federal legislation allowing more states to have LCVs, few states have adequate truck parking spaces to accommodate trucks longer than 80 feet.
Google made big changes to the ways their search results rank, the reason cited is that google wanted to provide more relevant results, google engineers published blog post which indicated there were 11.8% organic search results will be affected, put it this way, there are about 12% of google search results are considered low quality by google itself. They planned and started the update about one year ago, maybe that’s why some of my ranks dropped out of first 10 pages, on the other hand almost all keywords promoted by contextual links are not affected, some of the keywords even ranked better than before, it’s safe to say that old way of link building is doomed.
What is old way of link building any way? There are a lot of SEO company out there are doing this, they will get links from any websites which accept adding links, the only updates on those websites are the new links, almost all of them are garbage, we call these sites link spamming sites. The latest google update will definitely downgrade most if not all of these sites, any links on them will be affected too.
Let’s check out a few examples. When I got into online marketing long time ago, I needed to rank the keyword, E Track Strap, of course with old way of link building, lately I figured that every site in the campaign had way too many links, and those sites had only links, no real content at all. This strategy worked in the beginning, lately the keyword link stayed on the first page for a while, the party was over when google updated it’s algorithm. Here is another keyword, chain pullers, most back links for this keyword are from articles and posts, with very few plain links, now we have really good ranking for this keyword. Now contextual links win the battle, then what? In fact the only thing matters here is content, so if you create great content, your rank will improve over time, since search engines are another kind of readers. It’s never too late to build good blogs for business purpose, such as this interesting blog, best smartphone , I didn’t put too much effort into it from start, but I never stopped posting, I guess you believe this site won’t be doing too well, in reality this site is doing pretty well for more than a few search terms. Now you can see, quality blog marketing is much better than plain link building. Say you’re building your own bogging network, for instance Lift Sling, then it will be easier to do article marketing.
Remember content is king, you just need to create content, share the content with people, promote your business with the content, this strategy will prevail in short or long term. The virtues, persistence and patience, are essential for your success, you shouldn’t expect things to improve overnight, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, now all we have to do is to share our love for creating and sharing nice content and not to worry about the ranking all the time. Ezine is one of the best article directories out there, a new article will be indexed and cached in less than an hour, of course your posts on some blogs will be indexed real fast as well, I believe you should see for yourself, let’s look at this one, Towing Chains , good writing, interesting content, indexed and cached, this article serves it’s purpose well.
Last but not least, the social media is the must have channel for your marketing effort. One thing you can do for your blogs is to install twitter tools, get a twitter account and API keys, configure your twitter tools prpperly, you should choose to post a tweet for every new post, it’s easy and really useful, no one should miss this tool out.
