  1. Hey, my start of new posts in the VIP area. A chap I use to work with in the Police got into SEO work. A few simple things he recommended to me was to create a few other web pages / social sites all linking back to your website.

    He suggested creating these:
    Facebook
    Twitter
    Hubpages
    Squidoo Lense
    Blogger Blog
    Tumblr

    All big name sites which should help raise your website. You don't have to put anything fancy just the nuts and bolts of it then try and keep it updated. Here's mine on blogger http://mylittlecleaningcompany.blogspot.co.uk/

    Let me know what you think? :cool:

    If you're going to create a Squidoo lens then you need to be careful as Google did an update to their algorithm (the method they use to rank websites) whereby they ignore links from low quality websites. I put together an article on saving money on office costs but I'm waiting a few months before adding the link back to the GSF website.

    Basically, Squidoo itself is a very high quality website but the page that you create on Squidoo will be low quality for a few months. When putting together a Squidoo lens, try to make it USEFUL so that people will naturally link to it, thus increasing it's value. Easy!

    Dont forget Google+ it's dull but it allows "follow" links unlike FB who's links are "no follow".

    You need to post on a page that has a decent PageRank otherwise it's pointless. Having a few NOFOLLOW links in the mix is good practise as well.

    To be honest I have found just adding good content works more than backlinks and the like

    A good clean site structure and proper information hierarchy onsite helps as well - I'm talking about in the HTML code as well as in the actual visible structure. Make sure you use H1, H2, H3 headers appropriately etc.

    Recently did this site for a mate: http://www.solar-panel-cleaners.com and got some help from an SEO pro - he said one of the key things at the moment is canonicalisation to ensure that any "link juice" gets pointed at the right site address. Google the phrase "Canonical links" and you'll find the official articles from Google that explain what it is and why it's important.
