I am a Computer Science(Information Security) major at a local community college. I will be graduating in the summer,but I dont know which one of the following schools will be the best choice. I applied at University of Maryland College University (UMUC), Utica College, Purdue University Indiana, and Kennesaw State University. I got accepted at all but Utica college. I read lots of negative reviews about UMUC…..

I suggest Purdue, for the great program offered.

When it comes search engines, google is still the king, and they are doing everything they can to maintain their lead,   in the hope of offering it’s search users better results, on official google blog it is estimated 11.8% search results will be affected by this update, in another word, google thinks about 12% of it’s search results are really bad and need to manipulated. They planned and started the update about one year ago, no wonder I saw a few of my keywords’ ranks dropped like a rock, on the other hand almost all keywords promoted by contextual links are not affected, a few of these keywords ranked better than ever, it’s almost a sure thing that plain link building loses all it’s attraction, at least in the eye of google.

What is old way of link building any way? There are a lot of SEO company out there are doing this, they put your links on websites which only exist for holding links, these websites will only be updated when new links are being added, it’s safe to assume all of them are trash, we call these sites link spamming sites. Now google algorithm probably will weed out these sites, the links on those spamming sites won’t work anymore.  

Let’s check out a few examples. In the very beginning, I didn’t know better, I started promote the keyword, Tow Chains, it was old way of link building all the way, 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. I would give credit where credit is due, this linking strategy worked, eventually the keyword could be found on first page, the party was over when google updated it’s algorithm. Here is another keyword, chain puller , we promoted this keyword with articles and blog posts, not too many plain links have been built, now we have really good ranking for this keyword. Now contextual links win the battle, then what? It all boils down to content, when you create unique and quality content, not only people will love to read your stuff, so do the search engines. You probably think there are already too many blogs out there, it’s not true, there will never be too many good blogs, such as this interesting blog, fathers day gift , I didn’t put too much effort into it from start, but I never stopped posting, now it can even rank the highly competitive keywords. Now you can see, blog marketing with great content is the way to go. Now imagine you have your own blog network, such as Wheel Tie Down, then it will be easier to do article marketing.

Bottom line is that you should create great content, get people to enjoy and share your stuff, and put your keywords in the context you’re good to go, as long as you don’t stop doing this, you will win over customers and search engines. Persistence and patience are the keys to success, long term strategy is required to improve anything of significance, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, let’s keep building and maintaining our blogs until end of the day. Ezine is one of the best article directories out there, google will index a new article on ezine promptly, popular blogs will get your post indexed as soon as you post it, here I am going to show you an article in article directory or on a blog, take Tow Chain as an example, good writing, interesting content, indexed and cached, this article serves it’s purpose well.

We’re not finished yet, please remeber, we have hot social media now, no one can afford to not using them. For wordpress blogs, I recommend twitter tools, sign up for a twitter account and create a new application, set up API credentials in your twitter tools option, you should choose to post a tweet for every new post, it’s simple and elegant, if you don’t use this tool it’s just too bad.

Rank algorithm update from google weeded out a lot of good or bad websites,   in the hope of furnishing it’s search users better results, google engineers published blog post which indicated there were 11.8% organic search results will be affected, put it this way, google thinks about 12% of it’s search results are really bad and need to manipulated. The update was initiated more than a year ago, and recently I see some of my ranks were lowered considerably, the good thing is that those keywords promoted by content rich 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? a lot of marketing companies did and are doing the plain link building, they add your links to those linking websites without context, the content on those sites will never be updated, and most of them are useless, we call these sites link spamming sites. The latest google update will definitely downgrade most if not all of these sites, the links on those spamming sites won’t work anymore.  

Examples will be great for explanation. It was quite some time ago, I needed to rank the keyword, Car Tie Down, of course with old way of link building, a lot of sites I used had too many links, and the worst thing is that those sites are linking sites only and had no content, not even crap content. In the beginning, the ranking of the keyword in question rise pretty fast, lately the keyword link stayed on the first page for a while, this was the case until google made the change. Something opposite happened to this keyword, chain puller , we put the link in relevant context, almost no plain links, you can imagine how this keyword ranks. Now contextual links win the battle, then what? Actually this is all about content, so if you create great content, your rank will improve over time, since search engines are another kind of readers. You probably think there are already too many blogs out there, it’s not true, there will never be too many good blogs, for instance let’s examine this one, sherri hill dresses , I didn’t put too much effort into it from start, but I never stopped posting, now it can even rank the highly competitive keywords. As we can see, creating quality content and article marketing is what we have to do to get great result. Now imagine you have your own blog network, for instance E-Track, then you will have a powerful weapon in your SEO arsenal.

Remember content is king, you just need to create content, publish and share with people, in the mean time advertise your business with your content, your effort will reward you handsomely in the end. Whatever you do, you will need persistence and patience, nothing will automatically improve overnight, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, let’s keep building and maintaining our blogs until end of the day. When publisinh articles, I prefer ezine, new article will be indexed within an hour if not minutes, of course your posts on some blogs will be indexed real fast as well, here I am going to show you an article in article directory or on a blog, such as Laser Level, nice writing, good content, published on popular site, this article serves it’s purpose well.

Last but not least, if you don’t take social media account, you’re lost. One thing you can do for your blogs is to install twitter tools, get a twitter account and API keys, set up API credentials in your twitter tools option, you should choose to post a tweet for every new post, it’s simple and elegant, if you don’t use this tool it’s just too bad.
