Profit By Search is one of the best known SEO companies in the world. The company has been working for the industry right from the time when online search engines came into existence. The company has featured many websites on all the major known search engines that asked for their assistance. One of the prime reasons for the company being among the most trusted names of the industry is its habit of learning new techniques. Whenever there is something new in the market, all the resources of the company are updated and all the major points are internally discussed and new strategies are drafted accordingly. This time the topic of their discussion was the ill effects of SEO greed that can ruin a good linking strategy.
Last week on John Marbach’s expose of the popular music site, Rap Genius, which had started an “affiliate” program in order to get links pointing to their website. After it was exposed, Matt Cutts, head of Google’s Webspam team, said, “We’re aware and looking into it.” The site was then officially penalized for link schemes.
“In a nutshell, the folks at Rap Genius offered to tweet a link with a URL to any blogger that linked to the Rap Genius site using specific keyword rich anchor text to the lyrics of very specific songs by very specific artists. In exchange for these keyword rich anchor text links, Rap Genius would then tweet out a link to the blogger’s site/post, and that would result in their site getting “massive traffic”.” said a spokesperson.
