Best Ethical techniques to prevent Panda and Penguin hit

In its war against the spam and substandard sites, Google launched two major updates of its algorithm Panda and Penguin in the period of fourteen months. The back-to-back Google updates turned the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) industry upside down. Many of the low-quality and spamming sites that ruled over Google for a long time using blackhat SEO methods were uprooted from their rankings and thrashed to the bottom.

In this post we’ll discuss the best ethical techniques for preventing and recovering from Google Panda/Penguin hit.

Identify feasible Link Opportunities:

The identification of link opportunities is needed to be identified considering its authority and relevancy. Pay the highest concentration to the domains relevant to your niche, and rode on your strategy to accomplish these opportunities. So you must identify the right link opportunities before commencing link building process.

Use appropriate SEO Tools

The tools can make your job easier, but they can’t replace you. The tools like Majestic SEO and Open Site Explorer of SEOMoz empower you to attain domains with utmost authority over the search engines. Using these tools you can identify the most functional sites but their examination is needed to be conducted humanly.

Avoid Using Mass Link Building Techniques:

The tactics that delivers you hundreds of thousands of results in a short time makes your approach suspicious for algorithms. If you are buying links or any automatic method, you should ready for the algorithms’ backlash as it will detect your site today or soon. The emergence of links as result of viral content is sole legitimate way to get a whopping amount of links in a short period of time. There is no other way that ensures you that your website will be protected.

Social Media Sharing:

It has been observed that social media sharing also helps you to improve your site’s visibility in the search engine. So post relevant and interesting posts on your social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Dig, Delicious, and Google +1s to be engaged with your users and let them more discuss more about your product. Greater there will be the sharing, higher your social signal will be.

Content Marketing:

The most powerful content is text, which commonly covers the major portion of a website. However, it is needed to be understood that a perfect website consists of different sorts of contents and each has its own importance. The content you could include in your website could be in form of infographic Creation and Marketing, videos, tools and widgets, webinars, whitepapers, PDFs, and presentations, references and guides, Press Releases, eBooks etc.

In the nutshell, do not jeopardize your future by relying upon the substandard SEO methods to improve your visibility for a short-time because if your site is hit by Google Panda/Penguin, it would be very hard for you to resurrect.

Off-Page SEO Strategies to Build Your Online Reputation

When we say Off page SEO, we are referring to the techniques use beyond our website that will help us improve search engine ranking. In another words, we are not dealing with the site itself but rather the surroundings factors that contribute to the site's ranking. Just like how the environment would influence a baby's development. Many people often relate Off page SEO as link building. And what web-masters want are links which point back to their website. 

As we all know, the Search Engine Optimization field is booming day to day with new inventions and innovations. People may not know that much of what they have learned yesterday will be out of date by tomorrow. Unless one updates his knowledge by reading SEO news/articles, there is no doubt he'll lag back in the SEO race.

Being an SEO Professional, I hereby suggest some the factors that deal with off-page SEO. I found this forum to be the best suited place for sharing. Below is a list of some things most people may be familiar with, but I have also added a few advanced things that you may not know. Try these Advanced Off-Page SEO Strategies to market your website, get ranked in search engines, and to build online reputation (branding) for your company/website so that you can survive in this competitive SEO world.

Note: These things have to be done after the completion of on-page SEO. Before doing these things you must be aware of your competitors who can able build a negative reputation against your company/website.

1). Community Creation in Social Networking Sites

Also known as online reputation management, this is the first and foremost step with which you have to initiate your process. Try to become a member of the most popular social networking sites like Orkut, Myspace, Facebook, Linked In, Ecademy, etc., and create a profile of your own. By doing this you can extend your network online, get connect with your friends, share things with each other, and promote your company/website to build an online reputation. This is most likely the same as Web 2.0 (Participatory Web), which means you have to show your active participation on a regular basis.

2). Blogging

This is one of the most powerful ways to promote your company/website online. Write a blog of your own for your company/website and include lots of unique content. Be precise in what you're trying to convey for the users in your blog entry and promote your blog in blog directories and blog search engines. You can also promote your blog/website by posting comments in other service-related blogs which allow links in the comments section that are crawlable by the search engines (these blogs are commonly identified as Do-Follow Blogs). If you're not very good at writing content for blog posts, hire a guest blogger for your blog and ask him/her to write precise and unique content so that your blog can gain more credit from a search engine point of view.

3). Forum Postings

Create a forum/online discussion board of your own and start a discussion or share topics with your friends. You can also post/reply to a thread in other service-related pre-existing forums that allow links in your signature which can be crawled by the search engines (aka "Do-Follow Forums").

4). Search Engine Submission

Submit your website to the most popular search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Altavista, Alexa, Alltheweb, Lycos, Excite, etc., to get listed for free.

5). Directory Submission

Many people may say that directory submission is dead. As far as I'm concerned it is still alive. It is purely based on how effectively we are selecting those directories and how efficiently we are choosing the category for submission. Of course, I agree that it gives quite delayed results, but it is worth doing it. Submit your websites to the topmost quality directories like DMOZ, Yahoo Directory, ZoomInfo, One Mission, Pegasus, etc. Nowadays many web directories may offer paid listings but don't go for it.

6). Social Bookmarking

Social Bookmarking is yet another powerful way of promoting your website, but nowadays most people are spamming social bookmarking sites without knowing how to use them. Since content in these websites update frequently, search engines like these types of sites and often visit them (this is commonly termed as Tagsonomy & Folksonomy in Web 2.0). Do some social bookmarking in popular bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Propeller, etc. You should be very careful while doing this and you must properly handle the tags which are very essential to broadcast your news on a wide area network. This may increase your website traffic based on how effectively you have participated.

6). Link Exchange

Exchange links with service-related websites (this is commonly termed as Thematic Link Exchange) that can help increase your link popularity, which is a major factor of Google's PageRank algorithm. Beware of Black-Hats while doing exchanges.

7). Link Baiting

Suppose you have copied/published another website's news or content in your blog/website. Don't forget to place their website link as a reference. Do it for others and, if your content is trustworthy, let others do it for you. This is another way to increase your link popularity.

8). Photo Sharing

Publish/share your website product pictures and make them public. Let your friends see them and comment on them too, which will help drive traffic towards your website. Do this in major photo sharing websites like Flickr, Picasa, Photo Bucket, Picli, etc.

9). Video Promotions

Like with photo sharing, you can publish/share your product videos, expert opinions, and reviews of your product and make them public in YouTube, Metacafe, Dailymotion, etc.

10). Business Reviews

Write reviews about others businesses or ask your friends/clients to write a review of your business in major business review sites like RateitAll, Shvoong, Kaboodle, Stylefeeder, etc

11). Local Listings & Yellow Pages

Instead of going global and facing huge competition, make your website local so that search engines can easily view your website and fetch the content. This will help you to reach a targeted audience. Submit your website to Google Local, Maps, Yahoo Local, Yellow Pages, Superpages, Hotfrog, etc. 

12). Article Submission

Write articles of your own and submit them to popular article sites like Ezine, Go Articles, Now Public, Buzzle, etc. This will help you to attain some deep links for your website (though it's usually a slower process).

13). Press Release Promotion

If you are a business/service provider then go for PR submission in popular PR websites like 1888pressrelease, Open PR, PR Leap, etc. This will help you to publish your site in Google News.

14). Classifieds Submission

Do some classifieds submissions to advertise your products for free. Try Craigslist and other major classifieds sites like Kugli, Myspace, iMadespace, Vivastreet, etc. 

15). Social Shopping Network

If you own an e-commerce website, this is a good strategy for advertising and easily branding your products for free. Submit your products to Google Product Search, Yahoo Online Shopping, MSN Online Shopping, and other major social shopping network sites like Kaboodle, Style Feeder, Wists, Five Limes, Buzz Shout, Ohmybuzz, etc.

16). Answers

Participate in Answers by asking and answering relevant questions and placing a link to your website in the source section if necessary. If you don't spam, this is another great way to increase your link popularity (Yahoo Answers, Cha-Cha, Answer Bag, etc.) 

17). Document Sharing

Share your website documents like business documents, information brochures, and slides in Google Docs, Slide Share, etc. This will help you brand your website.

18) CSS, W3C & RSS Directories Submission

If you have a web design site or offer services related to web design, submit your website to CSS and W3C website directories which may drive traffic towards your website. Also submit your website to RSS feed directories which, again, will help you attain more traffic.

To me, Off page optimization mainly deals with marketing and advertising the site but not limit to, link building, guest blog posting, blog commenting, Social media marketing etc..
