Auto-Posting and Penguin 2.0
« on: May 21, 2013, 10:12:59 PM »
With Google sounding the war drums again with Penguin 2.0 aiming to go wider and deeper in targeting link networks, anyone else here who is using AB's auto-posting feature (which has the auto-backlinking feature) mildly concerned?   

I'm thinking I need to stop the auto-posting feature just to stop the auto-backlinking feature and go all manual posting, though losing the auto-posting kind of negates the reason for which I subscribed to AB.  Jon, care to offer any reassurances in this regard?

Can't tell you anything until Google has actually done something. I could parrot all the misinformation they've been spewing, but what they say and what they do rarely coincide much.

Jon, has there been any consideration given to implementing a "switch" in the auto post settings by which we can opt to "turn off" the back-linking service on a per blog basis?  This would allow us to continue to auto-post (I'm delighted with the new "unique auto post" functionality) without the automated back-linking?

Not at the moment, but I'll see what I can do.

I think that is an excellent suggestion.

Ok, this is done. There's now a checkbox under the "Advanced Settings" for both AB auto-posting and the Unique auto posting for sending the post urls to the backlinks indexing service. It's checked by default. Just uncheck it to prevent the links from being built.

Have to totally agree with Jon on this with Goggle what they say and what they do rarely coincide much. But don't hold your breath on this they just may surprise you. I been using my own blog network for my money site using AB contents as fillers and some pretty good Unique 100% quality contents for my links and I have seen so awesome results. I stopped using Senuke 3 months ago and my only tools are AB my blog network.

What is a Blog Network? Is it bunch of blogs set up to point links embedded in the posts toward the money site?

Yes, that's about it. The trick is to make sites in your blog network that do not, themselves, fall foul of search engine quality filters.

I am not too sure about ONLY using a blog network, I have been using blog networks for several years and found them effective and know that they still are but, just as I'd not thrive on a diet solely of bread and cheese, I'd not think that having only blog network links was the best thing to do. A balanced diet is needed.

From what I am seeing it looks as though, in a slightly different form, blog networks are on their way back.

Good point Andrew man cant live on bread alone but can on bread and water.  The anger bird 2.0 has been and gone and my keywords danced down and up to recover well.

The bread and water for good link building with a blog network is to include social signals to and from each blog building authority with each blog within its niche. A well managed and setup blog network will provide powerful link juice to your money site. With the use of Senuke on your blog network and a few other tricks you can have a powerhouse of link juice.

I have a 53 site blog network that is producing excellent results for me.  I had one article written to set the niche which I used as the permanent front page for the site. (what I think Andrew calls a "sticky post")  I then use AB as content in the "Post" section of the site.  I have the site set to post the AB content for different times, some of them for twice a day, some of them for once every three days and various time frames in between for the rest.

I then add three-four mini posts on the front page, each of them targeting different keywords for a different site so that I target three-four different sites on the front page of each site, each using the site's keyword as the anchor text.  I normally do not point more than six of the blog network sites at any of my money sites at a time.

I use SENuke to create back links for all my sites but I do not use my money site keywords with SENuke.  I use LSI keywords or meaningless words such as "click here", "visit this site" or the site url.  This gives me a large number of back links for every site but keeps me at a good keyword/anchor text ratio.

Since all 53 of my blog network sites are pr 3 and better I find that six of them pointing at a site along with the SENuke work is sufficient to keep my sites on the first page of Google.

This is 100% different from what I was doing in 2011, when I would normally have 50% or better keywords as the anchor text.  I now use 10% of less keywords as anchor text.

This would not be possible if I did not have a blog network that I completely controlled.  I could not place my links on the first page of the site, where the highest pr rank is found nor could I control the quality of the other content on the site if I did not own the blog network.

Nor is it necessary to use exact keyword matches for the domain name.  I buy good domain names from godaddy auctions that have good pr and then use my site content to set the "niche" of the site.
