A Personal Opinion
…But I don’t want to analyse that subject.My purpose is to present the news and grab the opportunity to talk about Black Hat SEO techniques that still marketers use.With every new tool provided they try to sneak into the system. Hoping to crack the engines and their technological improvements.With every new aspect they re-define their tactics just to get some quick results.Moreover the same old story , Google is already prepared for that movements , they stop them…Politely first….Then the second time they won’t be so kind…
What you think people.?…What Hat are You wearing when you plan your SEO.?
…are you going to follow the good way that has a Long-Term potential or will you include yourself in the second category , the shady one , looking for some quick cash.?…….are you on the “Whatever We Grab” side or the “I Have Big Plans” part.?
I think it is time to provide more value to the end visitors.They deserve it , they are your power.I am waiting for your comments and opinions
