Linkbuilding is essential in raking up keyword relevance though, there have been few linkbuilding strategies for over the years that has helped SEO consultants and SEO practitioners achieve ranking success. However, since SEO trends change as fast as a hiccup, these SEO strategies are being avoided as to not consume effort with an outdated strategy with a new, faster linkbuilding activity especially by an SEO consultant.
Here are some of those linkbuilding activities being discarded by most SEO consultants:
1. Trolling – For blog owners and blog commenters, trolls are as annoying as the common household weed, they can’t seen to be stopped no matter how diligent you mow your lawn. Comments containing keywords are always scouted by its authors and once it has been buried to the next page, this SEO will bring it back for the sake of rankings. Right now, SEO managers try to eschew this strategy since bloggers have made it to a point to report trolls and their optimized keywords and corresponding websites.
2. Too many external links – SEO consultants once enjoyed the freedom of stuffing keywords in one page as to maximize their keyword popularity – most pages suffer from this problem as, page admins had no choice but to delete the whole page. The privilege can be linked to abusive blog commentors and content writers inserting links here and there without even thinking of the consequences. Right now, they finally got the concept of stuffing too many externals can be hazardous to their website.
3. Wrong Linkbaiting – If your keyword or list of keywords all appear as SPAM, why bother with creative content if admins will just outright delete a submitted splog? Many pharmaceutical keywords try their best to come up with masked yet creative content in order for admins to accept their blog, article or press release – try as they might but linkbaiting doesn’t work that way.
