Google requested to kill auto-complete function in Japan

It seems that the Japanese judges have come down hard on the search giant’s auto-complete search function. The local press reported that a Tokyo District Court has approved a petition demanding that the search engine stop using its auto-complete feature.
Some Japanese individual claimed that the auto-complete feature breached his privacy. The matter was that the feature actually led to the loss of his job – it turned out that when typing in this guy’s name, the engine’s auto-complete suggested words associated with criminal behavior. If you click on those suggested searches, you will be able to find around 10,000 results that disparage or defame him.

Hiroyuki Tomita, the individual’s lawyer, has said during the interview that Google’s auto-complete feature is able to lead to job loss or bankruptcy simply by displaying search results constituting defamation.

Meanwhile, the industry observers point out that Google has really been having some problems with these kinds of cases. For example, back in 2011, when a UK citizen was falsely accused of being a pedophile in a Google Places review, the search engine had to pull it. But the UK wasn’t the only country that had problems with Google’s auto-complete. The company also had to give in to an Indian law that directed online corporations to block religiously offensive data from their search results.

In response, the search engine claimed that since Google is based in the United States, it shouldn’t be subject to Japanese legislation. It won’t be a surprise to many if Japan disagrees with this statement and succeeds with its request to kill auto-complete search function.qu

Website: Choose DIY or Go with a Pro

Feeling adventurous? Are your creative juices flowing like floodwater? Do you enjoy learning new skills and sopping up new knowledge?

Do you, as a user, know your way around the Web and have clear likes and dislikes about sites you visit?
Then you’re probably ready to take on much of the work of building yourself a Web site. Depending on how much functionality you need, you can even do it in a day, start to finish – your business, live on the Web!
But if you find basic word processor functions a challenge, have never uploaded an image from a digital camera to your computer or bought anything from a retail Web site, if you still haven’t set up that e-mail account you’ve been meaning to get to, it would be a very good idea to seek professional help. Web-building help, that is. In this step, we’ll fill you in on:
• DIY Web Site Packages
• Choosing a Web Design Professional
• SEO and Red Flags
Some people think of this step at best as BBI – boring but important. But don’t be tempted to skip ahead to the fun parts. You’ll regret it later or maybe sooner.

DIY Web Site Packages
Before you decide to build your own business Web site, be brutally honest in judging your own creative abilities or potential. This is tricky, because a lot of it is a matter of taste, and facing certain realities.
• When creating anything, do you have the ability to do it in a fresh or novel way?
• Do you have a sense not only of what appeals to you, visually and functionally, but to a wide audience?
• Are you color blind? (Many people don’t know the answer.)
• When involved in a creative task, are you persistent enough to work through the rough spots until you get it right?
If the answers to these questions add up to limited creative abilities, many DIY (do-it-yourself) Web site packages, including site-builder software, will fill in the gaps for you.
Most include customizable templates – fill-in-the-blanks Web page designs that provide the visual look and feel of your site and have basic functions built in.
Some DIY packages include your choice of domain name, hosting, add-ons, search-engine optimization (SEO), Web site traffic reporting and other basic but vital elements.
Before you choose:
• Be sure it includes 24/7 customer support. If one thing is certain in building and maintaining your own Web site, there will be bugs and you’ll have questions.
• Even with assurances of around-the-clock support, choose a provider in your own time zone. If they’re asleep while you’re awake, you can easily end up waiting 24 hours for the answer to even a simple question.
• Try it out. Most reputable DIY Web site providers now offer the option of downloading and trying their software free for a limited time.
That said, here’s a short list to get you going:
• 1&1 My Website

• Microsoft Office Live Small Business
• FreeWebHosts.com
• Godaddy Web site Tonight
• Yahoo! Small Business
• Web.com
• Homestead.com
• Prostores.com

Choosing a Web Design Professional
If you don’t have the time, interest or ability to design and go live with your business Web site, hire a pro – or at least someone with enough knowledge or experience to assemble a simple but professional site that meets your needs.
One way to get this done, and a good choice if you’re on a tight budget, is to contact your local college and ask how to find a student designer. Many of them already have enough experience to handle fundamental Web site design; some of them much more.
If your budget allows some elbow room, hire an established, experienced and proven pro. Just don’t do it the way old Aunt Gert picked her horse bets – by sticking a hatpin in the racing form.
But before you hire any Web designer or team, there are some questions you need to answer:
• Do they have experience with business Web sites?
• Can they meet the needs of the plan you carefully laid out in Step 1?
• Will you be working with one designer throughout your project, or passed around to different team members? The more personal attention the better.
• Does the designer or firm have references? If so, call them. If not, move on. Ask about your candidate’s record of meeting or missing deadlines, ability to collaborate with clients and their work ethic.
• Are examples of their designs at work on the Web? Carefully look over those sites, not just for quality and range, but for styles that agree with your own.
• What payment plans do they offer? Beware of any that require full payment up front. By the time you discover they’re not as good as they looked, it may be too late to cut your losses.
• What are their verbal and written communications skills? Can you understand them when you discuss your Web site needs?
It all comes down to using the same due diligence you would in hiring any member of your business team. If you wouldn’t hire them for a staff job, don’t hire them on contract.

SEO and Red Flags
Visibility on the Web, especially ranking high with major search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN on relevant keywords, is essential to online business success. Be sure to look for search engine optimization as part of your Web design package.
SEO is arguably the biggest single challenge in designing, building and maintaining an effective business Web site – or any other sort – because the “rules” keeping changing, the Web landscape never stops shifting, and new technology regularly adds its own wrinkles.
It needs constant tending to stay competitive, and whether you have the time and patience to take on the challenge yourself, or pay a pro for SEO, you should be aware of some warning flags.
• When someone says they’ll “submit” your new Web site to one, 10 or 100 search engines, it’s more sales pitch than substance. As long as your site has solid SEO built into the design, you’ll be found by search “spiders” – automated programs that constantly crawl the Web looking at sites to include in search results.
• If a designer or team promises SEO but doesn’t say which search engines they will optimize your site for, ask. While “submitting” a site is a mostly myth, your SEO must meet the requirements of at least the Big Three: Google, Yahoo!, and MSN.
• Don’t believe anyone who “guarantees” top search engine rankings. Nobody can back up that claim.
• Don’t believe any claims of immediate results. It can take weeks for the spiders to find you and add your site to the search results roster.

Check your Brand Reputation in 5 Minutes

Many years ago branding was simply the act of marking one’s cattle with a unique identifier so that they could quickly be sorted and would be difficult to steal. With the arrival of big corporations and the maturation of marketing, branding has evolved into something much more. Today, companies like Pepsi Cola spend hundreds of millions annually on their branding and marketing campaigns. With the popularity of search engines growing, SEO and Pay Per Click (PPC) have started to gain ground in these budgets. The following is a guide on how to perform an online brand reputation audit, which is necessary for  measuring these growing resources.

Using the Brand Search Engine Result Page
Whenever I see top search query lists, I am always surprised at how often people search for exact domain names or brands. It is for this reason that the brand search engine result page (SERP) is so useful. The following actions can help you identify what improvements might be necessary for a branded term search result page.
Search for the brand name in the major search engines.
To complete the first action item all you need to search for is the brand name of the given company. This will bring up a results page with about 10 results and some ads. This is one of the most important pages about the given company, and many otherwise smart company executives don’t pay attention to it. For many searchers, this will be the front door to information about the company. Google knows this fact and has crafted algorithms to take advantage of it. Upon analyzing the SERP for a wellknown brand name, you may notice some seemingly unusual results. This is because Google’s brand-specific algorithms intentionally show more diverse results than they do for a normal search. These results tend to include reviews and websites that share opposing views.
To give you some context, the ideal brand search result page would have all of the following:

  • An ideal brand search result page means no matter which link searchers click, they end up on a company-approved page.
  • The main domain would have Sitelinks, a group of Google chosenlinks to primary sections of the given website in search engine results.(Google Sitelinks)
  • The first 10 natural results would be owned by the given company
  • The page would contain at least one positive review
  • The given company would own all of the PPC ads for the query

The end result of a result page like this is that no matter which link the searchers click, they end up on a company-approved page. Although this isn’t necessarily the best experience for the user, it is the best business tactic.
Search all of the following and identify potential problems (this is not a comprehensive list):

  1. Brand Name Sucks
  2. Brand Name Scam
  3. Brand Name Cult
  4. Brand Name Problems
  5. Brand Name Issues
  6. Brand Name Support
  7. Brand Name Broken
  8. Brand Name Error
  9. Brand Name Review

The second and last action item on this list requires you to run a series of directed search queries to see if you can identify any problematic webpages. This list is not comprehensive and is only intended to be a
starting point. I use this list in my work and customize it to my clients based on their product or service. (For example, if I was working for an oil company, I would run queries for topical negative queries such as
“Brand Name environmental impact”) This step is important both because it helps identify problematic sites early and because it mimics behavior that a skeptical user might do. Remember, if potential  customers read even one negative review about a given company, they are significantly less likely to buy its product regardless of the source of the content.

Brand Searching in the Social Media
My sincerest hope is that by the time you read this article social media will no longer be the overused buzzword it is at the time I am writing this. It is definitely a very important part of the Internet, but it is not the be-all-end-all feature that may make or break your brand. It is merely a technological supplement. Remember, people were talking about brand on the Internet well before the creation of Facebook or Twitter. Use these services, but don’t lose track of the real driving force behind brands—their products and
services. The following list will help you glean some of the benefit these tools provide:

  • Brand searching social media can help you respond to criticism as it happens or just shortly after.

Search Twitter for brand name mentions.
This first action step is to search Twitter for any real-time (or near realtime) mentions of the brand. To do this, go to http://search.twitter.com and type the name of the brand into the search box. This step is
important because it enables you to respond to criticism as it happens.
Having been the guy that a corporation has contacted after I complained about them on Twitter, I can say that not only did it resolve the problem, but it left me giving the brand some well-deserved credit.

Search Google Blog Search for brand name mentions.
This next item requires to you to search Google Blog Search for brand mentions. As the name implies, this searches only through the blogosphere. This is available at http://blogsearch.google.com and is
quick and easy. For best results, narrow down the time span by clicking one of the available time filters. This action is important because it allows you to quickly see both what influential and beginner bloggers have to say about the brand. Bloggers’ opinions can travel to many ears and make a large impact on overall brand, and you’ll typically see company mentions on Google Blog Search prior to those stories going viral and spreading on Twitter and other social media sites.

Search Google 24-hour Search for brand name mentions.
This third action point involves searching Google for brand mentions that happened within the past 24 hours. You can accomplish this by searching in Google, clicking Show options on the resulting page, and
clicking Past 24 hours. This searches the Google web index for mentions that happened within the prior 24 hours. Taking this step is important because it gives you the chance to track down mentions before they are widely read. That said, on the Web, 24 hours is a long time and if you catch something too long after it happens, it might already be too late.

Search Google Realtime Search for mentions as they occur.
Google Realtime Search (www.google.com/realtime) is a relatively new interface from Google that allows you to search for articles, posts, and tweets that reach the results page within seconds of going live. You can filter your search results by geographic location and by time, so it’s very simple to track trends when and where they happen. Currently, most search results come from social media sites such as Twitter and
Facebook (due to their sheer volume), but expect to see more sources represented soon.

Search Facebook for fake accounts and fan pages matching brand name.
Facebook is unique in its ability to avoid looking corporate (with negative connotations) even when it is being so. This is largely due to the number of real-life friends who communicate on the site. So, the next action step has you search Facebook for fake user accounts and brand-related fan pages. To do this, simply log in to http://www.facebook.com/ and type the brand name into the search box as if you were searching for a person.
You can then contact or browse through any of the information offered by that person or p

age.

Search Myspace for brand name mentions

Similar to the previous step, you should also search www.myspace.com/ for brand mentions. This social networking site is smaller than Facebook, but covers a lot of people who do not use Facebook regularly. To do this, log in to Myspace and search for the brand name as if you were searching for a friend or username. This will help you see how the given brand is being talked about by the Internet-savvy demographic that is largely different from Facebook members.

Search YouTube for brand name mentions.
You should also search YouTube for brand name mentions. Though this isn’t comprehensive (it doesn’t detect words spoken in videos) it is the best video search available at this time. To do this simply go to
http://www.youtube.com and search for the given brand name. This step is important because of the inherent nature of video on the Web. It is easy to consume and easy to share, so its potential for spreading is
enormous. My favorite example of this working against a brand is a songwriter whose favorite guitar was ruined by United Airlines workers. He contacted the airline several times to resolve the issue, but they
refused to reimburse him for his broken property. Upset by their lack of integrity he wrote a song and published it on YouTube. As I am writing this, the video has been watched more than five and half million times.
The airline tried to respond to him, but the damage was already done (to his guitar and the United Airlines brand).

Search Digg submitted stories with brand name.
This item involves searching Digg for submitted stories with the given brand name. To do this go to http://www.digg.com and search for the brand name in the search box. The trick here is that you are not  necessarily looking for stories that have gone popular (because odds are they would have already turned up); instead you are looking for evidence of people who are trying to start something by posting negative brand stories to Digg. These people are especially important to find early so you can deal with their complaint before it erupts into a major problem.

Search forums for brand name mentions.
The eighth action point is a bit more complicated than the ones before it. It requires you to go out and find industry-related forums and then search them for brand name mentions. The easiest way to find them is to search Industry Name Forum or industry name inurl:forum*. (The asterisk here indicates the search is for “forums” with an “s” or “forum” without, plural or singular.)

This is important because forum members tend to be early adopters and more technologically advanced. This makes them very good people to impress.

Search Craigslist for brand name mentions.
This action applies most to companies that sell products. It requires you to go to www.craigslist.org and search for brand name mentions. This helps identify aftermarket sales and sales opportunities. It is also a good way to find pirated or fake goods, which is important because it can directly affect the bottom line. If you do this, be sure to check all of the applicable localities because these are important filters on  Craigslist. If the product is global, you can check just the major cities. It should give you an idea of how widespread the problem is.

Search torrent sites for brand name mentions.
The final action item has you search BitTorrent sites for brand name mentions. BitTorrent is a protocol for sending large files over the Internet quickly. This makes it a very good protocol for file sharing. The easiest
way to see if a given brand’s product is being shared via torrents is to either search for Brand Name torrent or torrent search engine and search for your brand. This step helps identify which products are in demand for file sharers and shows you what people are saying about your product.

Quickly Checking a Website’s Search Engine Inclusion

Now that you have gathered all the data you can about how the given website exists on the Internet, it is time to see what the search engines have done with this information. As an SEO, all of your work is completely useless if the search engines don’t react to it. To a lesser degree this is true for webmasters as well. These action items can help you identify how the search engines react to the given website. Choose your favorite search engine (you might need to Google it) and do the following:

Search for the given domain to make sure it isn’t penalized.
The first action item is simple to do but can have dire effects. Simply go to a search engine and search for the name of your domain (Ex. Example.com). Assuming it is not brand new, it should appear as the first result. If it doesn’t and it is an established site, it means it has major issues and was probably thrown out of the search engine indices. If this is the case, you need to identify this clearly and as early as possible.
See roughly how many pages are indexed of the given website.
The second action item is also very easy to do. Go to either of the major search engines and use the site command to find roughly all of the pages of a domain that are indexed in the engine.
For example, this may look like site:www.example.com. This action is important because the difference between the number that gets returned and the number of pages that actually exist on a site says a lot about how healthy a domain is in a search engine. If you find more pages in the index than exist on the page, you are facing a duplicate content problem.
If you find more pages on the actual site than you find in the index, you are facing an indexation problem. Both are bad.

Search three of the most competitive keywords for which this domain likely ranks.
The next action item is a quick exercise to see how well the given website is optimized. To get an idea of this, simply search for three of the most competitive terms that you think the given website would reasonably rank for. You can speed up this process by using one of the third-party rank trackers that are available.

Choose a random content page and search the engines for duplicate content.
The final action item is to do a quick search for duplicate content. You can do this by going to a random content page on the given website and searching for either the title tag (in quotes) or the first sentence of the page (also in quotes). If there are more than two results from the given domain, then there are duplicate content problems. This situation is bad
because the website is forced to compete against itself for ranking. In doing so it forces the search engine to decide which page is more valuable. This decision-making process is something that is best avoided because it is difficult to predict the outcome.

 

Safe Backlinking – SEO Guide

Links play a tremendously important role for the search engines and their algorithms.
Basically if you try to recollect, you will see that Google and its first algorithm started from the 2 guys inventing the “new-level-of-quality” algorithm of counting backlinks and using these backlink calculations for giving specific positions to the sites in the search engine results. Google emerged from smart backlink calculation.
The same about the majority of other big search engines – they are heavily relying on the
links in giving their search results for any specific keyword.
The problem is that Google knows: thousands of people try to manipulate the backlinks to
improve their positions in search engines.
That is why Google has started a serious battle with link manipulations, and this is great that they have started to do that!
However this causes lots of troubles for the people who want to build backlinks and want to make sure they do it in a smart and safe way.
This is exactly the purpose of what we are sharing here our successful experience of getting 1st page in Google for LOTS of different keywords in different niches, without any problems with Google.
No matter if:
– you have decided to build backlinks with www.carra-lucia-ltd.co.uk
– or you want to build backlinks in ANY OTHER way.
You still need to know how to build backlinks without looking as link manipulator for the search engines…

Because Safety Matters!
MAJOR LINK BUILDING SAFETY RULE:
The rule is simple – your backlink building must look NATURAL to the search engines. You
see, Google and other search engines will never fight against the sites that are growing their backlinks naturally, otherwise they would kill their own search engine business!
That is why if your backlink building looks natural to Google, you will never have any problems.

But what exactly is a natural backlink building?
And this is where the details start to matter a lot. We consider several factors to be critically important in making your backlink building look natural. Each of the factors will be discussed in details in the following section.
And after you read this information you will also see that the Carra Lucia Ltd service
is helping you to build backlinks in the most NATURAL way available on the market today.

Learn How to Make Your Link Building Natural
Natural Link Building – Factor #1
Your backlinks must be backed by something really valuable for search engines.
It is very easy to understand this factor if you get into the shoes of Google. Today there are
hundreds of links directory scripts that in a minute can create thousands of junk like pages, and these pages can give you thousands or millions of backlinks.
Are these pages of ANY value to Google?
No! In terms of value for the users of Google who want to find quality information these pages are junk, junk and let’s agree upon it.
But if you get a backlink from a large content page, the value of this page (and this backlink) increases instantly for Google. You created new information, this information is found by a person who used Google to surf the net. You have “bribed” Google with the most valuable gift – new information. Backlinks from this type of pages are real gold.
And this is exactly what Carra Lucia Ltd is doing for you, because you get
backlinks from inside real blog post with unique content.
Will Google be against new unique content? Never! Will Google look favorably upon the
backlinks from inside unique blog posts? Yes, otherwise Google should stop being a search engine.
Natural Link Building – Factor #2
Your backlinks must be from non-duplicate pages!
Duplicate content over years remains one of the most disputable questions in SEO. Is Google punishing for dup content or is it not?
Opinions differ.
But we think that here we must look at the problem from the Google’s point of view. Will be
Google happy about tons of dup content pages? No!
That is why we will try and give you methods of diversifying your articles.

Natural Link Building – Factor #3
Backlinks must be built from relevant sites.
This is another pain of SEO gurus, because no one says for sure whether Google is against backlinks from irrelevant sites or not. Google is not saying anything officially, because they hate giving away the details of their algorithm and say only general stuff that can be interpreted in both ways.
Surely you should not have big problems due to backlinks from the irrelevant sites. Otherwise your competitor in yoga niche would pay a porno site to give you thousands of backlinks and this would get your site deleted. Google understands that penalties for incoming links are a stupid and unrealistic measure. That is why sound logics assumes – nothing very bad in getting backlinks from irrelevant sites.
BUT!
Let’s think about Google and its interests again.
Does a recommendation from porno site about yoga site look valuable to Google?
Perhaps not, a much better recommendation about a yoga site is a backlink from another
yoga site, or health site, or fitness site.
This brings us to the simple conclusion: though there is nothing dramatically bad about
getting backlink from irrelevant site, it is MUCH BETTER to get backlinks from the sites in
your industry or niches which are neighboring with your industry. Gardening fits nice with
hobbies; finances fit niche with loans, debt freedom, retirement plans and business; health is ok with diets, wellness, basic life tips and fitness.
And this is what you are getting with Carra Lucia Ltd – we give you the choice
of sites in different niches that are ready to publish your quality information and not touch
your backlinks. You have maximum freedom is choosing the sites that correspond to the topic of your article.
This will make sure that you article is read by the targeted visitors on these blogs (these
visitors are very likely to click your links in the article, if this article grabbed their attention).
And this instantly increases the SEO value of the backlinks.

Natural Link Building – Factor #4
Backlink growth speed – don’t be greedy!
If your site is very old (at least a few years in the Internet) and has gained some SEO trust,
then even tons of new backlinks which have appeared to your site within 5 minutes will not
hurt the site. Maybe the site will get down due to heavy traffic, but this is another story 🙂
But when a new site that is just building its SEO reputation starts getting dozens or even
hundreds of backlinks in a matter of short period of time – this looks suspicious, very
suspicious.
This is a problem!
If your article gets republished on 30 sites maximum, with 2 backlinks from each article – this is up to 60 one way links from full republishing of the article! That means when you create (piece of cake) 10 articles per day – this sums up to 600 backlinks per day!!
We understand that even the most reasonable people will not stand this SEO seduction and will lure into building hundreds of backlinks per day. And no matter how much we say “Don’t be greedy, don’t be greedy” – most of the users came here for backlinks and will not listen to the voice of reasonability.
Don’t worry – we have taken care of the greediness.
We will not seduce our members: that is why when you schedule the article for publication, it does not get published on all blogs right after you sent it. Our service will be republishing your article on 3-4 sites per day, day by day, until the whole publishing sequence on 30 sites for this very article is not complete.
You do not have to wait with submitting another article, before the publishing sequence for
the previous article is over. But even if you send us dozens of articles per day, we have
automatically made your daily link growth look a lot more natural.
This is where we have made a decision without asking for your permission. But this is an
absolute must to do that reasonably and you will thank us over time for doing that.

Natural Link Building – Factor #5
Diversify anchor text of your backlinks!
Anchor text – what is that?!
The anchor text is a visible and clickable text in the hyperlink. For example, the in the HTML code quoted below ‘get free one way links’ is the anchor text <a
href=”http://www.carra-lucia-ltd.co.uk”>get one way links</a> and people who see
the web page with this code in the Internet will simply see that ‘get free one way link’ text is
hyperlinked to a URL http://www.carra-lucia-ltd.co.uk
Anchor text is one of the critical factors in getting good positions in search engines. This is
because search engines treat anchor text as a helpful information which explains what the
page (to which the backlink is sending) is about.

Today many people know about this huge importance of anchor text and put the keywords
(for which they are fighting for) into the anchor text of their backlinks.
BUT, this is where many people do a nasty mistake. By the way, this is one more mistake
caused by greediness. People use the same anchor text in all backlinks that they build. Does it look strange to Google that all backlinks to Site A have one and the same anchor text? It looks very strange! It is impossible that all sites give you backlink using one and the same word – at least few would simply write ‘click here’ or ‘more info’ in the anchor text.
We insist that anchor text diversification is a must for safe and successful link building
campaign.
This factor is taken into account by the Carra Lucia Ltd service – you give our system
several versions of anchor text and it will use one of the versions randomly when republishing your articles and building backlinks to your sites.
Let’s say you want to see your site on the 1st page in Google for ‘make money online’: we
suggest using several anchor text versions like: ‘make money online’, ‘how to make money
online’, ‘learn to make money online.’
This will create natural looks for the growth of your backlinks and will ensure that your sites
with the help of http://www.FreeTrafficSystem.com service – get solid SEO reputation and long-term success from link building.

Natural Link Building – Factor #6
The page to which you are building backlinks must have the keyword you are fighting for.
For example, you want to get 1st page for ‘best Italian shoes’ and you are building backlinks with anchor text ‘best Italian shoes’ (properly diversified – read lesson 5 for more details about anchor text diversification).
So, you must also make sure that the page – which you want to see on page1 for ‘best Italian shoes’ – has this keyword in meta title, meta description and somewhere in the text of the page.
This is all about adequacy and natural looks. Imagine how it can look for Google: 500
backlinks with anchor text ‘best Italian shoes’ pointing to the page which does not have even the single mentioning of this keyword. This is awkward and strange.
Simple insertion of necessary keyword in meta title, meta description and text of the page
instantly corrects the situation and the whole scheme starts looking natural and logical.
MAKE SURE…
That you are using a site building engine (also known as – content manager) which allows to change meta title, description and text for every single page. Most of the engines today have this option, because it has become a standard in the 21st century.

But unfortunately our team is sometimes contacted by the people who are building their sites on old-fashioned site engines that does not give necessary freedom about meta title, meta description and page text. These people scream for help, but it is too late – the site has to be built anew, with the help of modern site engines.
We personally recommend using WordPress blog engine and we build most of our niche sites on this engine. It gives you maximum SEO freedom. Moreover, it looks like Google is giving some sort of “special treat” to the sites built on WordPress engine.
But we do not insist on building your sites on WordPress. Any other quality and SEO adequate site building engine will be ok.
These are the most important factors for making your link building look natural.
Now we are going to talk about the typical mistake that many people are making – if you fall victim for this trap, then all your persistence and diligent generation of one way links will not produce any result.

Huge Link Building Mistake
This is the mistake that makes 80-90% of the people unsuccessful with link building and
SEO in general. We are happy to help you with our knowledge and get you inside the 10-20% who know how to avoid this mistake and become successful link builder.
Biggest mistake of the majority of link builders – wrong keyword choice. No matter how hard our team over the years was trying to focus the attention of the audience on the proper keyword choice for link building, the massive majority keeps doing it the wrong
way.
Don’t forget that fighting for 1st page in search engines is similar to offline business. If you are trying to get into the very competitive niche in the offline business, your chances for success are close to minimum, unless you have plenty of money and time. For example, try to get into oil refining business, or bank business, or global fastfood industry – you need to have iron nerves and big purse to gain any success there.
The same happens in the Internet and fight for the good positions in the search engines – you also have to measure competition and be reasonable. The only difference is that search engines have specific tools which help professional to measure the competition – in other words, to see if many sites have also started the fight for this specific keywords and how far they advanced in this fight.
Our team knows how to do that, and when reading the www.carra-lucia-ltd.co.uk site
where our clients proudly boast with page 1 in search engines – remember that to most of
these people from our success team WE have found the keywords. This is the best proof we know the keyword choice game: we know how to balance between nice demand and
moderate competition in any niche.
Others – unsuccessful link builders – try to catch the big part of the pie and choose general keywords like ‘money’, ‘fitness’, ‘Internet marketing’, ‘mortgages’, ‘real estate’, ‘cheap vacations’ for their link building and HOPE to get to the 1st page for them.
These keywords are taken for years, and the sites which are on the 1st page in Google for
these keywords already have build dozens or hundreds of thousands backlinks. And they keep building every day more and more backlinks. Moreover, the companies who are 1st page for these keywords understand the value of being 1st page and most of them invest dozens of thousands USD monthly into staying on page 1 and building backlinks.

Are you ready to fight with these budgets?
We do not say this is impossible. If you are very persistent and can daily submit 10 articles
(read = launch the building of up to 600 backlinks daily) and can do that for several months in a row – then you might be able to see your site there. But even this is not a guaranteed fact, because you do not know if another person is not doing the same in Carra Lucia
memberships for that very same keywords right now.
Many small traffic streams form a huge traffic river.
We believe – and our successful experience proves it – that it is much better to choose several “reasonable keywords” (with nice search demand and moderate competition), focus link building on these keywords and in a matter of time milk all these keywords for traffic.

Targeted traffic – because we are talking about keywords in your niche.
This approach has a serious advantage for those who do are just starting to build traffic to
their sites: you will see targeted traffic sooner and money sooner. Then you will be able to
reinvest part of your profits into the SEO fight for more difficult keywords. You will gradually
evolve to the higher and higher level of success with your online business.
How to find “reasonable” keyword for link building?
This is a very big topic with lots of details. Plus, this is more of a SEO mastery level, that is why the real secrets (not simple rules, but REAL secrets) of keyword choice are very unlikely to be shared with public audience.
But we have a solution!
From a page on a site you can order keyword research for one or more of your sites. The price is very small, especially when you order more of the service and get a discount.
Most likely the price for keyword research will be increased in future. At the moment we do
not charge more, because we want to hugely grow our “success team” – the team of people who have got 1st page with the help of Carra Lucia Ltd service. This success

How to get traffic – tip 5 – Link Back Pages on your website

It’s been true since the birth of the World Wide Web: people like pages of useful links. They’ll bookmark them and return to them. And today, because links are so important to search engine rank, link pages should be part of every targeted traffic plan.
Old fashioned link pages are the ones you build by hand, painstakingly, over many months and years. These are annotated links pages that include not only a URL, but a brief description of the site and its contents. These “handmade” link pages take a lot of time and a lot of effort. Frankly, they are slowly dying out on the web.
But thanks to web-based services and innovative software, you can build useful pages of links while enjoying all the search engine benefits – and without all that painstaking labor. Every serious affiliate marketer should lthink about creative ways to take advantage of these “new fashioned” link strategies
One simple new fashioned strategy is to set up a links page through a service like Bravenet. With this type of page, webmasters fill in a form to “apply” for a reciprocal link with you. On this page, you can explain that the application is subject to review, and that you will only link to them if they’ve ALREADY linked to you.
You can also include required text for the link they give you – you definitely want your keywords or your “brand name’ in that link! And you can even set up a response email, which can be customized. This response email should ask everyone who applies to send you the full URL of the page where they’ve got your link.
But don’t stop there. Once a webmaster sends you the URL where your link appears, submit that link to Google. Just go to http://www.google.com/addurl.html, fill in the form, and add the page with your link. Submit it to any other relevant search engine or directory. You want
those search engines to know that page exists so they can spider it as fast as possible.
After you’ve accepted the other webmaster’s link, it will get added to your custom link page. So make sure your links page gets added to your site map.

In fact, make sure you link to it from EVERY page of your site.

How to get Traffic – tip 4 – Online Surveys with a Prize incentive. Build up an Email database

You probably already know that surveys are excellent for finding out what your target market wants. But if combined with low cost, quick and dirty Google PPC, surveys can also send lots of targeted prospects to your site every month.
First, do some keyword research. You’ll need to find keywords and keyphrases that are related to your survey topic but don’t have too many Google campaigns running.
Second, sign up for an inexpensive survey service like Survey Monkey.

We don’t recommend free survey services, since they tend to limit the number of participants, and the whole point is to get as many people as possible to take your survey. Now design a survey that will appeal to your target market.
Next, come up with an incentive for people to take your survey. Make it a download, so you can capture the prospect’s email address. And make it viral. Even a simple white paper can be viral. You don’t necessarily have to cram it with affiliate links. Just make sure your URL is conspicuously listed on every page.

Now put up a simple web page that introduces people to the survey topic, offers the incentive, asks for an email address where you can send the download link and the survey results, and links to the survey.
Finally, use at least a dozen of the keywords your researched earlier to set up Google Adwords campaigns advertising your survey. Make sure the ad uses your keyword, and that it mentions the incentive. “Take this photography survey, get a free gift.” You don’t have to be the #1 ad. You can even be on the second or third page.
The point is to capture a targeted prospect’s contact information for a very small investment. But there are some additional serious fringe benefits in addition to traffic.
First, you’ll collect valuable information on what your prospects are looking for. Second, you’ll have their permission to contact them with the survey results and the download link for the thank you gift. And third, if you make that free gift a viral report, you’ll eventually get more targeted traffic. Nice!
