  20. 20. Link Building Campaign <ul><li>Standard Categories and Sub Categories </li></ul>See outline .........
  21. 21. Link Building Campaign <ul><li>Shady link exchange partners </li></ul>1) The use of meta tag “NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW” 2) Javascript Links 3) The use of redirects 4) Using robots.txt to block link pages or directories from search engine robots 5) Orphaned link pages or directories 6) Using new attribute “rel=nofollow” 7) Using frames or iframes
  22. 22. Shady Link Exchange Partners <ul><li>The use of meta tag “noindex,nofollow” </li></ul>The Meta tags are in the header of a web page, that is, between the <head> tags. There are some webmasters out there that use the Meta tag <Meta name=&quot;ROBOTS&quot; content=&quot;NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW&quot;> on their links page or directory. This means that search engine robots will not index (NOINDEX) or follow (NOFOLLOW) the links on that page.
  23. 23. Shady Link Exchange Partners <ul><li>Javascript Links </li></ul>Example of javascript: <script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript'> document.write('<a hr'+'ef=&quot;ht'+'tp://w'+'ww.lin'+'ktutorial'+'.com&quot;>Link Tutorial</a>'); </script>
  24. 24. Shady Link Exchange Partners <ul><li>The use of redirects </li></ul>Detecting redirected links is fairly simple. There’s no need to view the source code of a web page. Simple click on the link and if you see a series of URLs in the status bar of your web browser, that link is a redirected link.
  25. 25. Shady Link Exchange Partners <ul><li>Robot.txt </li></ul>Visit the robot.txt file, it’s in the root directory of a web site: http://www.[domain name].com/robots.txt User-agent: * Disallow: / This means that the web site will instruct ALL search engine robots (User-agent: *) not to visit or index the entire site (Disallow: /).
  26. 26. Shady Link Exchange Partners <ul><li>Orphaned Link Pages or Directories </li></ul>Are web pages that are not being referenced or linked to by another web page. Orphaned link pages are harder to detect than the other shady practices employed by some webmasters such as meta tags, javascript links, redirected links and robots.txt files.
  27. 27. Shady Link Exchange Partners <ul><li>Using new attribute “rel=nofollow” </li></ul>Google as a means to prevent the problem of comment spamming in weblogs, also called “Blogs”, and it looks to be adopted by all other major search engines such as Yahoo! and MSN.
  28. 28. Shady Link Exchange Partners <ul><li>Using frames and iframes </li></ul>Frames are used to divide web pages into multiple, scrollable regions or areas. Each region or area on a page is actual web pages themselves, with their own URL. Essentially, a page with frames is really a collection web pages displayed on one page.
