In link building, blogs and articles are two of the most important strategies in building link back to your website. You write your blogs and articles, and then you submit them to article submission sites with back links to your original website. However, now the question is, when you blog or write, which one do you prioritize, quality or quantity?

Quality

For me, this is significant to prioritize. And I know some other bloggers and writers also say the same, that it is important to maintain quality in your blog or article content. Some people say, “No need to blog and write everyday. As long as you can maintain quality, few a week have been quite enough.” I believe it is definitely true. What’s writing everyday if you just write anything without quality?

I’ve experienced that it is sometimes hard to find a new fresh and interesting topic everyday to write. I am sure that although you cannot make it everyday and just make few in one week, it is still helping you in gaining traffic as long as you write with good quality content.

Quantity

As some people are sure it is better to maintain quality more than quantity, some others are sure that it is significant to write or blog everyday and submit everyday. They are still sure that the more you have for blogs and articles, the more back links you get to your website, which means the more traffic you drive to your site.

This is not a wrong idea. You can and should write everyday if you are sure that you can still maintain the quality of your blogs and articles. If you are able to do that, then I will tell you that both quality and quantity are important.

What’s Actually My Point?

From all these, I will conclude that the most important in writing and blogging is quality. However, when you can combine both quality and quantity in your articles and blogs, it is always a better idea.

As it has been mentioned for so many uncountable times, SEO is something you can’t miss when you have a website. Every website owners must maximize their SEO strategy to succeed in online world. Unfortunately some still do not really care too much about this issue.

Some others put their own efforts to succeed their SEO strategies. And some others are sure that SEO is  too deep and complicated to do by their own. They prefer to either hire their own SEO consultant or use an SEO company service. But what’s the importance of using a third party SEO service?

The Difference when You Use an SEO Service Provider

Using an SEO service provider or SEO company or SEO consultant, they will ensure to keep updated with the latest trends in search engine industry. They will optimize your web pages or your campaign with the right strategies so you won’t lose rankings. This is an everlasting process that has no ending. It is a full time occupation that will always need their focus to work on.

Besides, with an SEO service provider, your site will be submitted wisely. There will be reports on ranking to show you site position in various search engine. If you have bad ranking or even no ranking at all, an SEO company will know how to adjust and resubmit your website. This submission is not just a blind submission. Instead, they will submit manually without automated softwares as many top search engines don’t like automated submission.

Even better, using an SEO service provider, you will have not only detailed ranking reports but also  web site traffic reporting to keep you updated with your website traffic. This helps you to see the traffic you receive and where they come from. It is really important for your website growth and profit measurement.

Additionally, they let you know the whole process during the entire process. This means they will explain the steps to you with the proper understandable terms. They will not only work for you to reach the success of your website SEO but also make you understand on how you get there.

And now, whether to use an SEO company/consultant or not is fully your own decision. You can either use any of them or do it yourself.

We often hear the term No Follow and Do Follow when it is related to Page Rank increase purposes as there are some websites that allow Do Follow while others do not and choose to remain No Follow. However, what do the terms mean and how do they affect the Page Rank?

Do Follow

Do Follow websites mean that the websites are passing page rank when there are people do some activities in them such as like forum postings or blog comments. So, when you post any to these Do Follow websites with back links to your website, you are able to increase your own website page rank as the websites allow it by removing the No Follow Tags.

As the Do Follow website owners, this will result on you having to pass and share page rank to those who post in your website. There will be no bad effect if those posters do not have bad credibility and are not spammers. However, what if they are? If they are; consequently, your website page rank will decrease as search engines surely do not like spammers.

Furthermore, as the ones who post in the Do Follow websites, it enables you to gain higher page rank by posting to these websites as they are passing page rank when there are links back to your own websites. But it is better that you do not misuse this chance to do spamming activities.

No Follow

No Follow websites mean they have insert No Follow tags in their websites so they do not pass page rank when there are somebody posting anything to their websites with back links. With the No Follow tags activated, there are effects for both the websites owners and the visitors who post.

For the No Follow website owners, they do this so it doesn’t attract spammers or page rank hunters to post there as I believe you will not be attracted to post in No Follow websites when you are in the need to increase page rank. Additionally, by using No Follow tags, they don’t lose their precious Page Rank to others as they can keep it all for them.

For those who post, as it has been mentioned just now, No Follow websites will not help you at all to gain page rank as they are not sharing it. If you are willing to gain page rank, it is better to find Do Follow blogs or forums websites so you are not wasting your time. However, if you are just looking for traffic or having any no intention at all, then you can keep on posting in No Follow websites.

So, what I will ask now is, which one will be your choice and what will be your purposes?

WordPress, the most popular blogging tool ever that I’ve ever known. Everybody who writes blogs mostly use it as their blogging tool, either it is from WordPress.com or WordPress.org. Wait! Are there two wordpresses? Yes, there are. However, both are really WordPress original. Then, what’s the difference and why are there two? Let me throw away all the confusion below.

WordPress.com

WordPress.com is a commercial enterprise website with full-time developers, designers and support agents. Using WordPress.com, you can setup your blogs easier and free of charge. You get your own wordpress subdomain like xxx.wordpress.com by just signing up an account. Then, everything is taken care for you, including setup, upgrades, backups, and security.

What is even better is that your blog is located on hundreds of servers, meaning that it is impossible to  go down due to high traffic. Your posts are safe too as they are backed up automatically. Additionally, you get extra traffic from blogs of the day and tags or find bloggers that have similar mind to yours using tag and friend surfer.

WordPress.com has secured login using SSL so no one can get your account access even when you use wi-fi. It also offers more than 70 attractive themes that keep adding each day and you’re able to edit the CSS. The only little minus is only you can’t run a custom theme; but honestly, the features are all good.

WordPress.org
On the other hand, WordPress.org  is a free blogging software, which now the latest version is WordPress 2.71. Using this free software, you can create and setup your own blog plus install themes and plugins, run advertisements, edit the database, or even modify the PHP source codes.

And to be able to have all these, you just need a good web host to host your blog site. However, please remember as this is downloadable software, it requires more technical knowledge for you to master in order to set up and run it smoothly.

For backups, you may need to handle your own backups and when there is newer version of WordPress, you need to upgrade the software manually. But don’t worry! Now, there is an auto-updating tool to upgrade it automatically. But when you get very high traffic, you site might possibly go down unless you have a robust web hosting setup and environment.

Briefly speaking, you have now seen that both WordPress.com and WordPress.org have their own features so, you can decide youself the best version for your blogs and articles.

It’s been around a week or two since I wrote my last blog/article here. Sorry that I missed out to provide you with some information. Well anyway, here I am for you again. Today, I will talk about something that is impossible to be unfamiliar for you, social networking sites.

I bet nobody never heard about that before. Many people register an account for many reasons, some of which can be for friendship, networking, and many even get a relationship or marriage from those. However, don’t just think they are only for those. There are even more benefits (or let’s say profits) you can gain from Social Networking sites, in terms of SEO and SEM purposes.

Search Engine Optimization and Marketing Purposes (Benefits and Profits)

SEO has always been a vital and significant issue when you have your own website, especially when your site is critical and important for your business. That means you will try every way to get yourself gaining more traffic (the most important benefits you get for your site, which will lead to profits later).

How? You can use different techniques combination to increase traffic to your website. You can do it by first researching which social networking sites are widely used and then developing a professional looking profile (Remember! Your profile is the one that grabs the visitors’ attention to your business).

Next, don’t leave it just the way it is! Keep in mind that you MUST always update all the information and the contents on your page. This is how you can communicate new stuffs about your products or services to your target markets and visitors.

You can add links to your particular website page on the social networking site, to generate more traffic and eventually, more profits for your business. You can leave a link to your site everytime you send message to people so they can click on it. And don’t stand alone! Your friends can also help to put a link to your page or your site. All these techniques will get you more traffic and the profits themselves.

Furthermore, if you wish to succeed in social networking, learn to leave your comments on the blogs of other members, with a back link to your website. But remember that your comments must be positive and good ones, not negative comments that will make others have negative impression about you.

In return, all these will surely generate you more number of your website visitors and more business profits. Believe me that social networking has been an effective tool of marketing strategies of many companies. When you decide to trust and do this, you will not regret it.

Which Social Networking Sites You Must Use

There is no exact one of which you really have to use as there have been too many social networking sites nowadays. You just need to choose the one that is suitable to your business needs and comforts, but especially, one that is popular and high-traffic with millions of members.

Some that I know very popular these days are Facebook and Myspace, which keep growing their members, popularity, and traffic in number. And there are also Twitter and Linked In for professional use. You can always choose one that you’d like to use, or better, you can use more than one.

When you feel they are not enough, you can always try to check more list here to get those you prefer to use. If you haven’t used any, better start now for your own good. Anyway, being late is still better than never… So, let’s get it started now!
