Backlinks and Google Results

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by suidmach, Mar 28, 2013.

  1. #1
    At the start of the month, I had several thousand mentions of my website. Things were looking good, then I started a campaign to double the amount of backlinks I had out there, so I literally started a campaign to get as many as I could. Ever since I did this, I have found that when I search my website name, the amount of mentions of my website name has dropped nearly in half even though this number should be rising.
    My question is how often does Google update the results?
    Why does this number go down before being refreshed?
    Does this affect my SERP positions?
    Any help would be appreciated :)

    my ranks didn't really change all that much. I just had a decrease in the number of results. I outsourced some link building activities, so I am trying to guage their results. I can't do that if Google isn't reporting. How long should it take?

    What are you trying to accomplish with your backlinking strategy?

    Interesting article from March 24th:
    Portent, a Seattle-based Internet marketing agency, has released a report offering new insight intoGoogle’s Penguin algorithm. The report, based on primary data gathered by the agency, suggested that Google has been “applying a stricter standard over time.”...Google Tightens The Noose

    Your backlinks are probably unnatural because you're focusing on quantity and just "getting them fast". You need to vary the anchor texts and build them slowly.

    This isnt the 90's anymore...google knows a lot more now then they
    did back then...i am sure google can spot a link farm a mile away, and
    the person you outsource for your backlinks also sends links to those
    very same sites over, and over again. I would bet that most spammy
    links are ignored the moment they hit....this is why when someone sends
    one article to 1000+ sites, then most of those links are ignored....

    To be honest, getting the backlinks you desire can take alot of work,
    time, and sometimes, maybe even years, as it can depend if
    you have something that no one else has, or are you selling the
    something the rest of the world already has in a new wrapper....

    back linking today is truly is not an easy process....
    I have spent tons on backlink packages just to get no-where....
    and it seems like the more you buy and try, the more results you loose....

    am I wrong anyone?

    The key to a successful backlink strategy is Relevancy and Diversity.
    The links must be from sources that relate to your main content, and
    should be from a wide variety of sources, like social networks, file sharing sites,
    press releases, blogs, image sharing, etc. as well as coming from different
    IPs and C-blocks.

    I've found it's better to have a few high-quality links than the typical
    automated link-wheel bomb run.

    Best of Success!

    Suidmach,

    To have a successful website you must have high quality backlinks.

    To achieve this you must have a knowlegable approach to building these high quality backlinks.

    To be successful your backlinks must have related content to your product or service and linked to a wide variety of different sources that relate to your websites main content.

    These include press release sites, social networking sites like Facebook, blog sites, and social media sites like YouTube, MetaCafe and others.

    Well, the OP didn't define "success" for the website in question. The only metric we know is the number
    of 'mentions' - whatever those are.

    If success means traffic, then the most effective means is paid advertising.
    If success means conversions to sales, then the most effective way may be article marketing.

    The point is that there are lots of different strategies and the challenge is to pick the few that
    are most of effective to get the desired results - 'mentions', traffic, conversions, etc.

    One solution - eg. backlinks - does not fit all circumstances.

    It amazes me that quantity of backlinks over quality of backlinks is still being discussed that much. Penguin and then all of the Panda tweaks have made the entire "quantity" discussion moot now. IMO, the downside risk is too great for any sustainable revenue model for websites.
