I’m done doing SEO tricks. They haven’t helped me a bit, in a long run they have even harmed my websites. Not that long ago I got burned from the Google penguin update for using blog networks and syndicating my content around them. My gamin blog stopped getting traffic from Google and because it was getting traffic only from Google the blog was almost dead. Luckily it recovered from the penguin punch in the shin and is now getting traffic again. How happy I was when I saw a spike of traffic in Google analytics
So it is better to not use SEO tricks which may harm your blog especially, if your blog or website is new and not established. Google likes to attack the weaker ones and stay away from the big guys. I was also using Blog networks for IMZ6 but it didn’t got penalized by Google.
So a lesson learned. Don’t use shady SEO tricks. If I was smart I would listen to my myself and stop using all the tricks and just create content which is the main SEO strategy you should be using, but I’m too curious and I want to try out everything and right now I’m still using one more SEO trick.
It’s a script which reduces bounce rates and increases average time on site. I have no idea how it works, but it reduced my blogs bounce rate from high 80-85% to a measly 12-17% and highly increased my average time on site. You can get the script right here and read about its SEO benefits: http://millionairevolution.com/cut-bounce-rate-by-80/ Use it at your own risk.
All in all I want to say that it is way more worth spend some time creating content then trying to build backlinks or use some weird SEO tricks to get more traffic. Use the basics of SEO and you will see success. Use shady SEO tactics and you will probably get penalized by the next Google update. If you just need to test out these SEO tricks then create yourself a test blog.
