  2. 2. Social NetworkingSocial Networking and LinkingThere are numerous articles (tips & tricks) on the Internet on how to create links, alsoreferred to as back links to your website, listings or social network pages. Likeeverything else these days some individuals follow proper etiquette and some abuse thesystem. At Sea N Sun we refer to abusers as the Back Linking Bandits.Not all links are created equal when it comes to search engines. Search engine crawlersscore quality links higher than bad links, therefore quality links will produce bettersearch results for your Website, Listings or Social Network pages.There is another type of link we like to call intrusion linking. This is where individualsleave posts, remarks, ask questions or get on your blog just to leave a link to their ownsite advertising their business on your real estate. These individuals are who we refer toas the back linking bandits because they are stealing blocks of your advertising space.The other day we received a compliment on an article we had posted on our Sea N Sunblog site. Normally we would try to thank you but this back linking bandit left hiscomment and a back link to his site promoting the same product. Rude, discourteousand inappropriate are a few polite words that come to mind but it was not there formore than a couple of minutes before it was flagged, reported as spam and deleted.There are a few exceptions that can be overlooked, for example on Merchant Circleindividuals can leave ratings or compliments. These too show up on your profile pagefor the world to see and many do leave back links but, if they give you a five star rating,well at least they kind of earned that spot so you are the judge.When you create a profile at a social page, listing or setup a blog site we recommend youmonitor it, it could be filling up with unwanted back links promoting other businesses.Look in the message settings of the social site so you can check the appropriate settingsto receive emails or text messages to keep on top of things. Many sites offer spamprotection, flag or report these back linking bandits as spam so you never see them onyour site again. If your blog site doesn’t offer spam protection you might want to thinkabout purchasing one that does and lastly delete unwanted back links from youradvertising space. Look in the help of the social site to learn how to remove unwantedlinks if you are not sure how to.SeaNSun LLC | Millbury, Ma Page 2
