Onsite SEO -- Diversifying Footer Links

  • Renee Reply

    Given that we're focusing on onsite SEO this month, I thought this would be an interesting read for you onsite gurus.

    This Search Engine Watch piece discusses the issues that can arise from webmaster footer links and the importance of diversifying those footer links. The discussion in the "comments" section about the interpretation of Google guidelines in a post-Penguin world is worth a read, as well:

    Real nice read - thanks Renee. Definitely some good tips in there. As a whole, I've been pretty impressed with my resellers knowledge on anchor text in general. If you're doing online marketing (as you should be) articles like these are great to help educate and ultimately put your site in the best position to succeed.

    wow, interesting article and an even more interesting problem. I wouldn't have thought that taking credit for your web designs in the same way every time could tip off Google's spam 6th sense.

    I think this is interesting but I'm with @cliveportman in the article. There is a lot of speculation and assumptions that Google isn't already dealing with this type of link.
