Freelancers Could Pay As Google Prepares Googlegeddon II - Page 2
Nobody really ever knows for sure what Google will do from day to day. Current top-ranking web properties could wake up somewhere on page 100. Content that was seemingly plausible and current could suddenly never see the light of search day. Therefore, the one tip I can proffer to webmasters, freelancing professionals and those who feel their website may be in dire straits would go as such: temporarily take your lower traffic properties down and make sure everything is conforming to content rules, interlinking needs and images are as original as possible. Take the extra steps to make sure newly transferred domains aren't blacklisted by previous ownership. Read every major tip from authoritative sources such as Technorati, Google themselves or anyone that has proven expertise in quickly changing website structures after Google slams the gavel down.
Another piece of frugal advice for freelancing professionals? Simply run an authentic business, consistently educate yourself on changes in content expectations of search algorithms and make damn sure you don't spin content or build illegitimate links. Google is slated to begin these changes soon. Very soon. And it is slated to wipe out piracy outfits, link farms and perhaps even cut down on Wordpress footprints. I'm not saying that you'll have your age-old Wordpress blog whacked; websites that seem to pop up overnight will be closely monitored for aforementioned legitimacy. Hold on tight, freelancers, and perhaps be ready for huge workloads, or no workloads at all. Yes - Google is being that serious this time.
