After the Google panda update there are many sites, which had been badly affected, and people are still trying recovering from this. But the most buzzing topic at the moment is what is remained in the search engine optimization that can still help you in gaining ranking for your website.
Still Working SEO Methods
Some of the old methods, which are still working after the Google panda update, are the following:
- You can still place comments on blogs and it will be counted as backlink.
- You can submit to social bookmarking sites.
- You can still ask for reviews.
- Forum Submission.
- Feed submission.
- Video submission of your product on YouTube or other video sites.
With these methods you can still achieve SEO. Directory submission is still counted as means of generating some instant traffic, as they are not of much importance in gaining backlinks. But there are few authority link directories – whose links are still counted as backlinks.
Do keep an important check in submitting to link directories – that you submit a revised description in every directory – kind of unique submission in each directory, this is just to make sure that Google does not count it as a duplicate content and don’t de-list them.
Article directories are best to be avoided at the moment. As it will take some time to flush their duplicated content and flourish with new one.
