Oops! Bad, bad SEO
I can’t remind you enough, when searching for someone to handle your Search Engine Optimization, make sure they understand how the new Google Panda works.
One way to do that is to do a company search. Chances are if your using someone for your SEO, they have optimized their own site in the internet. If you were to find an article searching for TagLine Media Group, in a site that you can list your properties on, that would be a Bad Bad SEO mistake.
It’s not just about the links anymore. It is about the relevance of the placement. So giving you that example, it would actually be a negative mark in the Organic Search Engine process.
There is software out there that will automatically submit your blogging articles to various sites and yes, they will be published, however Google has caught on to this and acted accordingly.
Search Engine Optimization is an art just as much as Website Design. It is a slow and steady process. And it should be. You as the consumer have every right to demand that when you type in a search phrase, your not getting cheated out of the best product available to you because someone paid to have a program submit their links.
