We’ve all heard about thousand times the phrase “don’t keep all your eggs in one basket” and in this case it fits accordingly. If you’re traffic is coming solely from Google then chances are you won’t survive, no matter whether you do blackhat or whitehat.

What you need to know about Google 50 Penalty

If you are in the search engine optimization game, chances are your site has been hit at least once by the so called “Google -50 Penalty”. You are ranking for a good term and your Adsense earnings are going great but all of a sudden, when you wake up one day you see that you made zero, nada, zilch from your biggest money making site. That very same thing happened exactly to one of my sites, that’s why I would like to elaborate more on this topic.

As we all know, forget what self-guru’s say about SEO and its factors, everyone knows that the biggest ranking factor are the backlinks and there are no bad links actually, its simply how you build them.

Google Minus 50 Penalty

As you can refer from its  name, you will lose 45-50 positions in the search engines. So chances are that if you were ranking on #1, you will end up on page 4-5 now and the organic traffic will disappear right away.

How is it caused?

There must be a proportion ( I prefer to call it distribution) of anchor texts used in your backlinks. If you’re main keyword is “healthy diet” and all your backlinks have “healthy diet” as an anchor text, you will trigger the alarm over at Google which will punish you with the -50 penalty

The Cure

Never use the same anchor text while building backlinks, it won’t look like natural hence you might get banned from the Big G. Use always variations of your keyword and whats most important, do not only link to your homepage, try to link to your other sub-pages or categories too. In this way there will be a distribution of links going to the main URL as well as to the other sub-pages of your website.

So if you’ve been hit by Google -50 penalty, its time to continue building backlinks with just a simple twist, link to your subpages as well as rotate the anchor texts used. By my personal experience you will be out of the penalty in 45-60 days

How To Stop Spam in WordPress

One of the most annoying things in WordPress (and not only) is the continuous spam. The screenshot on the left side was taken from one of my blogs which in less than 2 years has received more than 51 thousand spam comments (thats actually 69 comments per day and thankfully that blog was just an experiment from my part). In this article I will write how you can have a nice looking spam free blog.

1.Akismet

The very first thing to do is activate AKISMET, it is really crucial and will catch most of the spam coming from various suspicious locations. You should have an activation key from WordPress.com (you get it after you signup)

2.Comments Cleaner

Most of the people comment on blogs with the sole purpose of getting a backlink. What if you remove that? Comments Cleaner does exactly what it says! You have the possibility to check one of the options below:

  • Remove Author’s URL
  • Remove HTML Tags
  • Remove BBCode tags
  • Remove plain text links

3. Remove Author URL box

Another possible solution to stop spam is by removing totally the author’s url box. Most of the spamming comments are done automatically by using various bots so it wont be able to locate the field to populate it with the spam url :)

If you want to remove it, then go at Appearance -> Editor -> Comments.php and then locate the following lines of code:

<label for=”url”>Website</label> <input type=”text” name=”url” id=”url” value=”<?php echo esc_attr($comment_author_url); ?>” size=”22″ tabindex=”3″ />

 

If you have any questions or inquiries do not hesitate to use the comments area below (don’t try to spam it, it wont pass :P)
