More Google Updates: Penguin 2.0

June 14, 2013 10:21 am Published by

While there are several areas of impact by Penguin, we had some specific interest about the impact on internal link structure strategies.

Google historically does not comment in detail about how exactly Penguin or Panda work. After delving into the world of internal links and the effect this can have on sites, we are receiving reports from other industry insiders that internal links should not have a negative impact on SEO.

If you have a typical navigation, links in your footer and you have not keyword stuffed, you should be fine. With the majority of SEO practice, just keeping a balance will avoid problems in most cases. Simply avoid over optimizing.

Internal footer links are important and a great way to optimize your site. Investing some time in your sites navigation and including links where appropriate will help support your SEO efforts.

Tip of the post: if you have written posts that have a similar topic, such as real estate internet marketing, include an internal link such as “to learn more about real estate internet marketing click here” which will then take the reader to another post. This will help improve your traffic, instead of readers going onto the one post and then bouncing, it will encourage them to navigate through your site.

Link away!

While I knew this day was coming, I’m still sad to see this announcement officially go out…

So, it’s story time about the early days of Google Optimize and how it came to be.

A busy housing data week ahead. Mon @NAHBhome / @WellsFargo builder confidence HMI; Tue @uscensusbureau / @HUDgov housing starts; Wed @nardotrealtor existing home sales; Fri @uscensusbureau / @HUDgov new home sales. 2023 will see more weakness, but rebound shaping up for 2024.

Big news today!

The company I started 16 years ago @AltosResearch has been acquired by HW Media - the publishers of @HousingWire.
