You Can’t Spam Your Way to the Top

If you think that you can push your SEO campaign to turbo charge mode in the hope of getting your website to the first page of Google, then you are mistaken. SEO is a lengthy process, a time consuming, labour intensive campaign that can take may months for it to play out. So, if you are wanting best practice SEO and want to rank on Google in a compliant manner then you CANNOT spam your way to the top of the rankings.

Why is Spamming your way to the top a BAD IDEA?

seo-spamSimple. Google expects to see quality, organic search engine optimisation happening on your website. If they detect or see any unnatural linking or a spike in inbound links then they are going to respond to this with what is termed a ‘Google Penalty’.

Sure, as a business owner in Sydney you want to see your website rankings shoot up to page 1 very quickly. Any delays or fluctuations (especially drops) are cause for concern and are the things that keep you awake at night. I totally understand that you want to rank really quickly and get your service or product out there and start selling ASAP. In a perfect world, this would be possible. But, unfortunately we no longer live in an environment where you can rely on traditional media to drive business. Now, all we have is Google, and they dictate precisely what is needed to be done to rank a site. They are without doubt, the judge, the jury and the executioner. They have the final say the final word on who will be on page 1 and as a SEO company all we can do is play by their rules.

Many business people who I speak to think that we can move mountains and somehow have an influence on the way Google ranks a website. The answer to this is YES, we do have an influence, but there is only so much we can do. What, we can do to help your rankings is to implement a SEO campaign that flies very low under the radar of Google.

Our motto or core principle when it comes to SEO, is to work in as natural and organic fashion as possible, this is the only way your site will have any chance of getting to that coveted top position. If you feel that this ranking can somehow be manipulated by doing SEO in a speedy, accelerated or hasty manner then you are misguided.

Google is so sophisticated and has that many advanced algorithmic filters that they can detect the smallest amount of ‘spammy’ activity.
