Without consistent web traffic you are losing sales and the old days of “link building” as a primary ranking and traffic strategy are long gone. Content must stand on its’ own and drive “likes” and “shares” as the new form of “SEO Link Juice”.
But don’t take our word for it, Google stated this updated Patent filing for their PR (Page Rank) algorithm:
“An implied link is a reference to a target resource, e.g., a citation to the target resource, which is included in a source resource but is not an express link to the target resource. Thus, a resource in the group can be the target of an implied link without a user being able to navigate to the resource by following the implied link.“ – US Patent No: 8,682,892
Although the direct quote is a little foggy, if you read carefully the meaning can be derived from the word “Implied Link”. The popular opinion in marketing circles varies in definition but is interpreted to mean indirected references from content like press releases or social media mentions.
Anyone can purchase press releases but social shares, mentions, likes and comments cannot.The only way to obtain “implied links”, as Google calls them, is to create content that drives user engagement and sharing. This further supports the need for a true and proven methodology to significantly increase your chances of success.
We have several “demo sites” that we use for testing the Kudani platform as well as the PICASSO framework methods. Below you can see that one sample site, mindrig.com, which has a post ranking #4 for Dr. OZ memory supplements, #5 for Dr. OZ brain pills and #5 for Dr. OZ brain supplements.
