Bing Link Explorer is here!

For all the SEO addicts, I have some good news. You remember Yahoo Site Explorer which was among the best free backlink checkers? It moved to Bing however it was idle for many months. Now its here and its looking promising. Even though the web-based report shows a maximum of 200 backlinks, if you use the export function it will show much more than that. Here is a sneak preview of how it looks like:

How to activate Link Explorer on Bing Webmaster Tools?

Before being able to use Bing Link Explorer you will need to signup at Bing Webmaster Tools with a Windows Live account (hotmail / live). Then you will need to verify one of your websites and after that go at Dashboard – Diagnostics & Tools – Link Explorer

You can even find sites linking back to you by anchor texts so use it wisely :)

Deciphering Google Penguin Update

Almost anyone in the SEO game has been affected by the latest update from Google named “Penguin”. Primarily, it was the Panda update which filtered many MFA (made for adsense) sites and penalized them from the top positions.

I strongly believe that there must be a relation between the Google’s algorithmic changes and the names they’ve been using. After reading a passage from Wikipedia about Penguins you can clearly understand what I’m talking about:

Penguins for the most part breed in large colonies, the exceptions being the Yellow-eyed and Fiordland species; these colonies may range in size from as few as a 100 pairs for Gentoo Penguins, to several hundred thousand in the case of King, Macaroni and Chinstrap Penguins.Living in colonies results in a high level of social interaction between birds, which has led to a large repertoire of visual as well as vocal displays in all penguin species.Agonistic displays are those intended to confront or drive off, or alternately appease and avoid conflict with, other individuals.

Did you read that? Penguin, social interaction… Perhaps Google is trying to send a hidden message where it clearly states that in this update, social interaction (such as Google+ , Facebook, Twitter and much more) is the key to ranking higher?

In fact its logical for a site to be using a Facebook page, a Twitter account and in some cases a YouTube channel for their videos. Is this a move towards social optimization rather than old-school SEO?

Rich Snippets

Many months ago Google introduced rich snippets which most probably you have noticed in Google’s search engine. Is it a desperate way of attracting more members to join their social network Google+ or its a step further to semantic search technology?

The real problem with Google Authorship is that everyone can be anyone, by just creating a fake account on Google+ and then linking that account with your spam/mfa websites. How is Google going to protect millions of visitors from getting scammed or misinformed?

Panda, Penguin and the Platypus

The mighty jungle called Google is getting wilder and wilder and on many discussion boards, webmasters are already complaining about the mess Google Penguin update has made however one thing is for sure, Google is moving towards the so desired social-interactive buzz and will eventually give a higher importance to it as a ranking factor.

Despite the recent changes in the SEO industry, I still do believe that useful content along with powerful backlinks is the recipe for a successful, high ranking website!
