Some guest bloggers are no more ready to spend much time in providing good and informative posts and, that is why many website owners do rejected their guest posts because it is in most time full of duplicated phrases on the internet. If you don’t write good and duplicate-free content for your guest posts, chances are that it won’t get published.

Blog Reputation

Reputation of the blog you are writing for does matters some times. If you are writing for a blog which you know very much that their readers are high profiled people, you should make sure to write to the taste of those people. Not just to write anything for them to read. You can’t just submit an article you like to ShoutMeLoud and expect Harsh to publish it without targeting the type of contents their readers are looking for.

Google Penguin is depositing more dollars in Google Bank Account

Around three months back when Google released its Google Penguin update, I was thinking who is going to benefitted from this change? Will it be End User, Publisher, SEO’s or Google? I didn’t have the answer at that time but now after three months of ‘Google Penguin’ I know who got maximum benefit from it.

It is none other than GOOGLE. Google has announced its revenue details for the 2nd quarter of financial year 2012.

42% increment
in revenue from Paid Clicks

Google revenue details clearly point out that there is approximately 42% increment in revenue from Paid Clicks program as compare to second quarter revenue of 2011.

2nd quarter revenue includes revenue from April 2012 to June 2012 and Google Launched the Google Penguin in April 2012.

You can easily relate how Google penguin change has put millions of dollar in its Bank Account.

Google said that Google Penguin change will provide more relevant result to end user as it is against the over optimization and un-natural back link.

Google was partially correct; this change was against Over- optimization and un-natural backlinks but it didn’t add any value for end user. Most of the webmaster forums and SEO forums are full of complaints where they mentioned that how irrelevant results are coming on top in SERP.

How Google Penguin
helped Google to earn more

Because of Google Penguin most of the online business owner have lost their ranking in SERP, that directly affected their business revenue so they have opted Google Paid Click program to be on top in search result to get more clicks.

It has been observed that ‘Google Penguin’ lowered the ranked of many top quality content sites (because of their unnatural backlinks) and due to this many irrelevant sites got chance to be up on SERP. People don’t getting relevant quality result from organic listing so they are force to click on ‘Paid Ads’ on search result page.

Few webmaster said that they have used ‘Paid Clicks’ from Google to compensate their client loss because of ‘Google penguin’.

What is unnatural links? I got unnatural links message from Google

Google Web Spam Head Matt Cutts released a new video (11-Feb-2013) in order to answer the question asked by one of webmaster.

Dbizzle from Los Angeles asked an interesting question about “How do we know what are unnatural links pointing to our domain?

“Google Webmaster Tool says I have “Unnatural Links”, but give little help as to which specific links are bad. Since I have never purchased links, I don’t know which one to have removed, and I’m scared of removing good ones, which will hurt my traffic. Suggestions?”

Dbizzle, Los Angeles


What is unnatural links?

First of all I would like to tell you all that Google recently started sharing information about your bad links in Google Webmaster account (in the form of e-mail).

Normally unnatural links (or backlinks) are

  • Paid Links
  • Links from banned site or Adult sites
  • Links from link exchange network sites

If anyone of you has received such e-mails then you must want to know which links are unnatural as e-mail doesn’t tell you about exact links that Google don’t like on your back link profile.

Matt suggested two ways on how to find unnatural links to your site.

Back Link analysis

Matt suggested that, Google Webmaster Tool have provided to download your latest website backlink analysis. This functionality provides your links and date when Google have discovered these links.

Now you can check your backlinks around the date on which you received ‘Unnatural Backlink’ e-mail from Google.

It will help you to find bunch of backlinks that may be on radar. You can analyze those links and sources and then removed the links that you think are unnatural or bad links.

Future e-mail will
contain example of backlinks

Matt has given a hint that soon they will roll out a change, once this change will be rolled out then all the ‘unnatural back link’ e-mail will have the example of ‘back links’ as well. These example will help you to find bad or unnatural backlinks within your back link profile.

Why Google telling us
which links are bad directly?

Now my question to Matt is, “why Google is not listing down all the bad (or unnatural) back links within the unnatural back link e-mails as it help blog/website owner to remove unnatural links”.

Why they are sending only example of bad links? Why not list of bad links?

Right now I don’t have any answer to my questions but my assumption is Google is not sharing exact bad links URL as it can help to webmaster/SEO to distinguish between natural and unnatural link logic of Google and they can plan their back link process accordingly to manipulate their client’s ranking.

Google is re-writing your page title tags

Google is re-writing our Title Tags.

I was reading a discussion thread in a webmaster forum, in the thread many people reported that ‘Title Tags’ in SERP for their sites are different from what it should be. Google is re-writing ‘Title’ of our page wherever it is longer than 60 characters.

Why Google re-writing
page title tags?

First question came in my mind what is the reason behind this ‘Title Tag’ re-writing process.

Google mentioned in its early updates that they will re-write Titles for those pages which has Title longer than 60 characters but my home page has a ‘Title Tag’ shorter than 60 characters.

One of the forum members mentioned that

  1. The title rewrite algorithm is specific to the search term.
  2. The goal is to increase clicks. How well they achieve that goal is an open question.

First point suggesting that Google re-writes your Title tag according to the search term entered by the user so that pages can get much better ranking and user can get much better results. Second point confirms my explanation for point one J

One of the members mentioned that, Google is doing this because they don’t want to rely on anything from the webmaster – Title, Description, Links, Anchor and Text etc.

Many of SEO Consultants and SEO professionals found it another Google step against SEO.

How Google decides
what should be your new page title?

Although there is no clear cut explanation about it but different webmasters have share different points based on their experience.

  1. Google use your most used keyword while re-writing your Title Tag.
  2. Google use anchor text from your internal links to that page to re-write your Title tag.

One of the members mentioned that, “Google is using their domain company Name from ‘whois’ details while generating their Title Tags”.

I know it sounds weird but big G can do anything.
