Before the weekend officially gets under way I thought I’d drop everyone a line to answer a few questions regarding the recent events and goings on over SEO in the last few months and certainly regarding Panda, Penguin and SLS.
Well first up, I get asked regularly about has SLS and its network been affected by the Penguin Update and the answer it would appear (touch wood he says) is that we seem to be OK at the moment as we do appear to have maintained our “low key” below the radar status.
I ran a test for a client last week on one particular keyword phrase and after the Press Releases had appeared in the top 5 slots in Google (well 4 out of the top 5), positions 7-10 were occupied by our Bookmark Directories.
Also I spoke to one of our longer standing SLS members the other evening and we were talking about SEO and Promotion in general and how sites were starting to come back post penguin and I mentioned that in our case we hadn’t changed anything in terms of promotions Post Penguin and that the one site we did have that had been affected was now showing a month on month increase in Google traffic by about 15% for the past 4 months.
The moral of the story it would appear was that yes you couldn’t deny the Penguin Update had had an effect but that by just keeping on with the basics, we had managed to survive without buying the plethora of “shiny new toys” or reports that always seem to appear post a Google Update. One wonders whether in fact what some folks would do if there never were any Google updates at all.
Ok, another question that came in recently was “what the heck is Back Links Heaven all about”?
Simple, loads of places (probably more than any other source) where you can put your own back links.
I recorded a brief video guide about Back Links Heaven here:
We still have a few packages of the first six Volumes of Back Links Heaven available at $45, which effectively prices them at $7.50 per volume for 2.5K Links.
The platforms covered in the first six volumes ranged included:
MoinMoin (wiki Platform)
Also as a quick Weekend Promo for SLS users and Members we have the following happening.
A few JV partners have approached us to see if we could put together a brief mini-series of Back Links Heaven and we have and it’s comprised of the following.
Volume 1 will contain links from 10 different Platforms and the OTO that will be on offer only to those who have bought the deal will offer 30 Urls from each of the 10 Platforms for $35. These will all be links from Sites with a minimum Home Page Rank of 4. The sites will include the following platforms:
VBulletin (Blogs here not forums)
There are some nice unusual Software Platforms there as we are expanding rapidly our range of Platforms on offer in Back Links Heaven
These packets will only be available as a OTO or to members of Simple Leveraging so anyone who wants some links from some nice PR4+ sites (mix and match of NoFollow and Dofollow) then send over the $35 via PayPal to email@example.com and we’ll get you sorted.
For those who wish a bit more coverage and want to go for the Proper Volumes of Back Links Heaven and want the half price offer then send over the $45 to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you sorted.
In the meantime have a great weekend.
