Avoid Making This Simple SEO Mistake!
Looking to rise to the top of the search engine results page with your blog post or website? ⬆️⬆️ Here’s what NOT to do! 🚫
Google’s Senior Webmaster Trends Analyst, John Mueller provided some valuable insight 💡about Webmaster rules and how Google’s algorithms function to identify and suppress link exchanges. 💻
If SEO is the game, Google’s algorithm and quality team are the referees. 🏁 Understanding the rules is crucial to an SEO win and a sustainable search optimization strategy for your website. 🏆
Link exchanging is considered to be a foul on Google’s playing field.
Although link exchanging is a seemingly mutually beneficial agreement between two or more websites whereby each party agrees to post each other’s link to their respective sites 🔗, Google says it’s a direct attempt at manipulating PageRank and a violation of Webmaster Guidelines. 🚩
It is no secret that good backlinks are a significant catalyst in improving search engine ranking, but excessive link exchanging for the sole sake of backlinking may result in a penalty from the Webmaster referees and reduced search engine rankings for your pages 🙅♂️.
