I have been giving a great deal of thought lately to why I seem to be having lower amounts of â€œluckâ€ or if you will success with my current SEO strategies. I think mainly my strategies consist of good and positive added value, however after reading a bit more on Eric Wardâ€™s website www.EricWard.com I find myself questioning whether or not my tactics are sound. What I mean is that though I may be adding value to website users by commenting on blogs and in forums am I really portraying myself as a member of the community or do I look like I am temporarily there just for the links.
I am honest when I post, my profile is about myself and I am upfront with the information that add to my profile. When it asks for my profession I add that information and I say who I am employed by. Maybe I am giving too much information awayâ€¦ maybe I need only answer the minimum and not the maximum.
When working for clients Eric doesnâ€™t even post on blogs or in forums. He only works for content rich websites and I think he finds ways of using that content on the link sites in such a way as to benefit link partner and their website users and still not give so much away to them that it hurts his client. I do not know what exactly he does, but things like teaser articles and regular site content for the link partner come to mind. I mean spending 10 hours writing great copy for a really awesome link partner will most likely be more beneficial than posting on 100 different low quality and low traffic blogs and forums.
I may just use this strategy after I have completed list of potential link partner sites, I have over 500 sites in the LDS discourse community and now I am qualifying them. My software has been really buggy so I am having a hard time finalizing it.
Go to Ericâ€™s site and give me your opinion on his Link Building Philosophy. I would be eager to hear what you have to say.
