P.S: Date may be not completely Accurate

Their has been drastic change in how the websites have been evolved in the past few years but we must say that that call to action is now very much clearer of these websites and the pattern how the websites have been prompted in the user arena and how it has been made upto date according to the latest fashion.

Many websites provide features after they you have been loged in whats suits youi best and what will you prefer the old good days or would you like to flow in the new changing river? do let me know through your comments.

This is the one topic that is of great discussion in the SEO community now days. People are offering it as a red flag by the Google, but some says there are no issues in using the “rel=nofollow” tag as said by MATT himself,

The nofollow attribute is just a mechanism that gives webmasters the ability to modify Page Rank flow at link-level granularity. Plenty of other mechanisms would also work (e.g. a link through a page that is robot.txt’ed out), but nofollow on individual links is simpler for some folks to use.

Page rank sculpting

As many experts differs in their views of seeing the No follow tag and using it some like, Joost de Valk’s says if there is nothing to hide then there’s nothing to lose, some says we should use it properly, but I’ll say No follow is something that is very easy to use and great tool to dam the PR juice from leaking through our page, it can be used in more better purpose.

I will say their should be no pages in your website that you don’t want your PR juice to pass or You’ll need page per page control of the robots meta tag, and you will probably be using it to noindex, follow category / tag / archive pages, in favor of single pages. That, combined with not giving too much linklove to these pages, is the essence of third level push.

Our pages should be well connected and each landing page should have something to do with the navigating page, users don’t want to get surprised.

Google Say’s you can do Sculpting, No! You cannot do it by No follow tag, but does Google really following that, let’s see

This issue doesn’t encourage me to link out less, Should I turn my Comment off? No!

That doesn’t mean I am hoarding your sites PR, it’s just that Google trust less to the sites that links to the spammy sites.

There are experts out there who have started giving methods to sculpt the pages accordingly.

These were the issue’s that were poured out, but are they worth threatening? Experts are one who makes answers from the questions!

1 – Google is now “evaporating” link juice through nofollow’d links.

2 – Selecting which links receive juice on a page is still critically important.

3 – Doing good things for SEO shouldn’t get in the way of a good user experience.

There are lots of areas where we’ve traditionally used nofollows that this makes sense:

Log-in/

– Register Page Terms of Service / Privacy / Legal Disclaimer

– About/Bios/Contact/Press

– Comment/User Links in UGC

– Pagination

Making a Good use of the gained PR is necessary, Engine are intelligent enough to pass the juice to the places that matter most. The developer should code fancy just to prevent PR leaks.

Satrting an onlne business

Starting an online business

Last night I was reading the book of Tim Ferris “The four hours work week” on how to build an online business in a month. Since this book was written few years back the technology and the automated tools are now much more advanced now and are more efficient and powerful that will efficiently build an online business in a week, How this could happen I will Discuss it over here.

This includes few marked steps that will surely lead you to make an SEO certified website and fully operational within a week, you just need to give just few hours of your day to make it happening within users.

The first step is to do a Market Research of your business over Internet that will be powered by Google. You can easily fetch your requirements and the competition online through it easily, which keywords to use? Where to use? What will be the keyword Density? That is all you need in writing the SEO powered articles. That will assure you of the SER in the Google pages.

Spend some of your time on

Gaining an extra hand online

Gaining an extra hand online

This will give you the exact information about your product and the estimated traffic analysis. This research took a lot of time before (libraries, phone calling, and focused groups), but after the advancements in keyword analysis in 21st century is now lot easier and economical and can easily be done in few minutes.

For looking into the market there are two important Questions to be answered first

  1. Is this something I actually care about?
  1. How competitive is the market?

Because it is very hard to do a business that we don’t care about.

Second step is to choose which of your company product is suitable for doing business online.

This is the most crucial step, as there are few selective people who select internet as the gateway to purchase the goods or services. Therefore, your product should be user intended and should be able to provide customized and personalized services to the customer and should also increase your sale by 2* or 5*.

Third Step is to build the SEO certified website that will take one afternoon of yours.

I have been working on the new tool for few months “SquareSpace.com” that lets you build a complete website within a few hours, it is Flooded with all the useful and user intended tools that will almost build your website automatically. These are some of the tools that will help you in building the fully functional website:

• Blog engine

• Photo gallery

• Analytics

• Templates

• Form Building and Data Collection

• Custom Editing and Content Management

• Fully export and import other blogs

The price tag is a tiny $8/month and you can get a full featured site for $14/month. What’s even more impressive is how a tool like this can help you build a real business in a really short time.

Now the main thing in building the website is copy writing or article writing, the few guidelines in building the small, short and sweet article that will be optimized for your product too are:

• Use Short Paragraphs

• Use Bullet Point Lists

• Use Lots of Sub Headlines

• Keep Everything Short

• Don’t Be Afraid to Be Light and Humorous

Use paypal.com to set up a “buy now” button for the amount of your product. You can explore more sophisticated payment options in the future, but paypal.com is free to set up and inexpensive to use.

Fourth step is to buy some traffic:-

You’ve done some keyword research, and have written articles according to it  now it’s time to buy a bit of traffic and see if your product will work. “Adwords.Google.com” is incredibly fast and easy to set up. It will surely buy you the customers within few minutes after you setup you campaign. A few clicks and you can set up a campaign to start driving traffic to your product. In this you should be aware of using the correct keywords and where to use them and how to use them otherwise it could also lead you to expensive bills with no sales.

Fifth step is to have a watch that does that really works?

Run Google Adwords for a few weeks and start to gather some data. You’ll get a good idea on whether your product works or not. There are tons of resources on this site on how to improve a PPC campaign, get better conversion rates, and boost traffic. But the most important thing is to get started right away.

Google the Emperor

Google the Emperor

I was sitting idle this evening and just have a thought in mind what if Google start asking for money and thought of sharing this with you. You Google a lot in a day , average people search almost 10-15 query a day as they find themselves satisfied with the results, Say for more than 4 search result you have to go for premium account to continue searching, will people still use it? I can still remember the article I read late night last Sunday where the mike said people are so much addicted to Google now that they now search for the smallest things, Googling is now becoming their need not the facility now days they don’t want to go the address bar and type-in the URL of the page instead they just write some keyword they remember which leads them to the website that they were trying on, this made Google so efficient that people will actually wouldn’t mind paying Google.

But I guess money is not the issue with google right now, its monopoly is now been challenged by the giants of search arena, which now are providing with much more user intended search results, you must be thinking that they will collapse, as no one could challenge the great Google, Answer me first one question whom do you think provide best results for your queries? No !! STOP, don’t answer blindfoldedly go and check out your answer on blindsearch. As many time I try to search my query and wish that it is google I come across that its either Bing or yahoo.

So for the Googlers it may be shocking but this could generate real time revenue for Google, but for this Google has to knock out the other two champions from the arena, for now google can’t risk on this issue, May be he is been thinking on this, May be not but one thing is for sure if 80% people are using Google for free there must be some people around who will be paying Google for their premium Accounts as they are paying for their need’s.

What do you say?? Comment!!
