The news is Google have nuked another public linking network. These are systems where a few thousand blogs will host one of your articles with a link back to your sites. You know the drill.
Problem is, these networks are massive and so show up on the radar.
Two big hitters have sunk so far:
Interesting AMA says, “It’s not some BS like “demand was so high OMG WE GOTTA CLOSE!”. It’s simple. AMA still works. Google are targeting networks which confirms one thing. Networks work. And they work too well. But this targeting, it’s being done by manual intervention.”
I know more than one agency who has used these systems. Why? Because they work, but obviously they are not long term, but all that means is that there is an added cost. It doesn’t mean they don’t work.
Whilst you rank, you earn. And the cash doesn’t go away unless you spend it on donuts.
But Linkbait and Infographics work too, hint. So do Web 2.0 links.
We are continuing this convo in a little more detail on linkbaitcoaching.com and the subject of how to build your own private domain network. This obviously comes with a big fat, red lettered warning. But we are all grown ups.
So, all good stuff, what Google Giveth, Google can take away.
Ooops! Correction, AMA have not been hit, yet. But have closed their doors to new members.
