Sometimes when viewing results you will see a little tick next to the website's domain name, if you hover over this tick icon you will see that the website is a "Approved Accessily Posting Website". So what does that mean? Well, it means that this domain has been reviewed by experts in the field of blogging, SEO and internet marketing. So its passed the following crucial criteria.
A Private Blog Network (PBN) is a network of authoritative websites to build links to your money website(s) for the purpose of ranking higher in the Google.
PBNS stands for 'PBN Site', referring to a website that is part of your private blog network.
This search engine optimisation method is considered whats called "Black Hat SEO". Which means it breaks the Google webmaster guidelines.
A guest post farm is a website who's sole aim is to sell as many guest posts to people willing to pay for them.
They typically charge between $40 - $400 depending on the power of the link from their guest post farm website to the buyers website.
When we say power, we mean how much it boosts them up Google for their target search terms.
The difference between a nasty looking private blog network and a guest post farm is typically the quality of the website.
Private blog networks tend to have very poor content on them that often doesn't even read correctly.
They often copy website content from other websites then using "spinning" software which changes the wording slighly so its not an exact duplicate.
While guest post farms typically have average content that reads well, its normally not very informative content. Often its copied from similar websites and manually rewritten. Sometimes it can be hard to spot a guest post farm but if you know your search engine optimisation there are a few signs you can look for.
So firstly, the quality of the content. Secondly, how are they linking to other websites, are they using normal links like "Locksmith Miami" or like "best cheap locksmith". The latter is an obvious attempt to rank for the keyword "best cheap locksmith" by including it in the link's anchor text. Lastly, this one reqires some specialist tools and may be a little too advanced for the average blogger but its always worth knowing.
