Linking Strategies for GoogleWritten by SEO Company
Google has recently filed an application for a United States patent including use of historical data in analyzing links. This has caused quite a buzz. Many articles are being written about new linking strategies for Google and how to "beat system." Techniques to beat system include registering domain name for 10 years instead of one, repositioning your Google AdSense banner to get a better click-through rate and using third party linking strategies. All of linking strategies geared towards beating Google's system will eventually fail. Why?
Google is using historical data to rank each website. In linking terms, this means that Google keeps track of each link's date including outbound and inbound links. The date a link is found on another site pointing back to yours is recorded. The date you put up an outbound link to another site is recorded.
Other information Google keeps track of with a date stamp is registration date of domain name, date Google finds a website (usually from an inbound link) and date that browser Favorites are added. There will be a few Webmasters who will work very hard to spoof this information and a few may even succeed. But, for average web business owner, these shady techniques will not be an option.
So, what is best linking strategy for new Google? The best new strategy is same as best old strategy: content. Content is still king. Those who argue this point have spent too many hours trying to beat system rather than working on content. Beating system has worked for this group, for a while.
The faith of the children of LirWritten by Paul Gibney
This haunting story has inspired Celtic jewelry makers for many years now as swan theme embodies traditional Celtic designs and Celtic symbols.
A long time ago in ancient Ireland lived an Irish Chieftain named Lir. He was married to Aobh daughter of King Bodhbh (also called Bov Red) of Lough Dergh. They had four beautiful children; Fionnula, Aodh, Fiachra and Conn. Unfortunately Aobh died giving birth and Lir was devastated with grief. When King Bodhbh heard of Lirís loss he offered another one of his daughters to Lir in marriage. Lir choose Aoife as his new wife and stepmother to his children. At first, all when well with marriage, Lir doted on his four children. Soon Aoife became intensely jealous of her stepchildren. She even pretended to be sick for a whole year in order to look for special attention. One day Aoife told children that they we going with her to visit there Grandfather King Bodhbh, as they had done many times before. Along way they stopped at Lough Dairbhreach (lake of oaks) and Aoife ordered children to wash themselves in lough. Once they were in water, Aoife cast a magic spell turning four children of Lir into beautiful white swans. Fionnuala cursed her but implored her to put some limits on spell. Aoife regretting what she had done agreed to allow them keep their beautiful singing voices. But spell still imposed a harsh sentence on swan children. They were to spend 300 years on Lough Dairbhreach, 300 years in Straits of Moyle and final 300 years at Erris. They spell would only be broken when they heard first bells of Christianity and when a King from north marries a Princess from south.
