As most marketer’s know, Google’s SEO Penguin update has been the cause of some dramatic affects on the rankings of certain websites. Many are looking for a way to recover from the devastation caused by the Google Penguin update and although there most-certainly is a way, there’s a chance you may not like what I have to say next. But, if it’s a way to get back all your traffic, and more, why let yourself get beat-down and defeated over a simple update, that ultimately, should have been considered by webmaster’s in the first place.
Hence, the very reason for why people who are consistently seeing more traffic, more success, and more revenue come their way, are those who go against the grain. It’s the same people who over and over again, reiterate this one piece of fact, marketer’s find so easy and simple to ignore, as it seems to be the ultimate way out from putting in a bit of work each and everyday. What exactly am I talking about? WRITING YOUR OWN CONTENT!
You see it’s no different than a 6th grade, highschooler, or even college student getting punished for what is called, plagiarism. What is plagiarism? The copying of other people’s work, that is not for the taking, when wanting to see success. Hence, the ONLY people who never complain over their ranking status, or sudden bursts of traffic as they suddenly see their website becoming more authoritative as a result of some update, are the people who genuinely, and effortly write out their content, once a day, three times a day, maybe even more!
It’s important to understand as well that such content writers never, and I mean never, use backlinking techniques! I mean, who knows after all, what kind of websites your backlinking to?! What if it’s an automated system, despite its genuine look, that gets totally crushed by Google Penguin, well guess what? Your website is just as likely to get penalized as well, just for having that mere association!
Another factor is the fact you may have some of your own automation going on within your website.. Well needless to say, Google’s algorithms will not only outsmart you, or in better words, your little implanted automation system, but will have already taken all the control you ever had from your website away from you. It’s time you know something very, very important: Google has the intelligence of 7 billion people combined. To think for a second, you can be using SEO automated systems and sources to get you ranked, will only backfire harder than you can possibly imagine!
Nevertheless, I’m still wondering to this day why people go through this insane and crazy hassle of avoiding writing a simple keyword-rich post or two a day, and doing it the right way, to see a smooth gradual incline in traffic, through simple patience and persistency.
What, is it a sense of fear? Fear that your content will never be too good enough? Fear that you’ll never rank in the first place? Or.. maybe it’s the impatience factor.
At the same time I must state my feelings to most of those who’ve been affected, and knowingly deserved it. I’m not sorry! People work their butts off, more than you know, and while we may finally overcome the stress of online marketing by rather focusing on persistency and hard-work, over ways and methods of finding the secretively easy way out, it is our mere determination that differs between the colors of our hats.
