Sharing SEO Highlights in 2011 by Internet Marketing Inc.

Jan 4, 2012 by     27 Comments    Posted under: Link Love, SEO Tips, Social Media Optimization

I would like to share a very good SEO analysis post made by Benj Arriola in their blog Internet Marketing inc. He have mentioned the different highlights of SEO that happened last year and I believed it is worth reading the article. Most of them will definitely have an impact to year 2012.

Here are the 11 SEO highlights that was mentioned on the post. You may see the link to the post at the bottom of the page.

  1. Ranking Penalty Due to Aggressive SEO (JCP & Overstock)

  2. Poor Quality Content Penalty: Google’s Series of Panda (Farmer) Updates

  3. Google +1 Button

  4. Google+, Google takes a shot with Social Media

  5. Schema.org: the Rich Snippets Guide

  6. Google Sitelinks on Steroids

  7. Rel = Prev and Rel = Next Pagination Tags

  8. Rel = Alternate Tag Specificity

  9. Keyword Data Encryption – Data Not Provided

  10. Freshness Update

  11. Last Month Algorithm Changes

Among the 11 items in the list, I was not able to do the schema.org, I still need to do some research about that topic. I was also penalized by Panda, and this blog lost almost half of the search engine visitor. I am still struggling on Google+, my visitors seldom shares at their Google+ page, or most of my visitor does not have Google+.

Good and great post will always secure your ranking in the future. Engaging in Black Hat will not secure your SEO effort in the future. You will always have doubt and stress. But I would like to emphasize that Black Hat is different than Automation. Just my belief.

I could say that, I was not able to do something on most of the changes as mentioned above. It only means that I do need to do more research about SEO this 2012. I always remember a saying that “SUCCESS is the greatest enemy of Learning” the moment you meet your success you stop learning, and this is what happen to me last year. I do hope it will not happen this 2012. It should be “Success comes with great responsibility and Continues learning is a must in order to be successful ”. Success will also mean more money online as well as more friends online.

I need to share more about Tech at Hand Dot Net SEO Tips this year 2012.

  • looks like it’s all about google

  • makes me have a second look at my websites and blogs… i know seo basics, here’s wanting to learn deeper about it.

    • @Ion Man (Boy Dubai),

      Last year SEO is really amazing and an over revamp. I wonder what will happen in SEO 2012. But at least we can improve with reference to changes in 2011

  • am familiar with SEO – content-wise as I have tried SEO writing before… However, I know that SEO writing is just a tineee-tiny part of the whole SEO process for blogs and sites… I should really study more about this when I have the time. Thanks for the overview! 🙂

    • @ellen cayaba,

  • You try so hard to share these things and many have following these tips. It’s good that you did your best. Do more. Have more for others to learn in this 2012. Good luck!

    • @Gil Camporazo,

      I hope to be of help to more bloggers this year 2012

  • to stay on top of the seo game, it look’s like that link building has no place.. writing original content is sometimes pain in the head.

    • @Faust,

      I think links will still be there. but we need to make it natural.. Yeah.. writing original content is hard.. that’s why i am investing through writers 🙂

  • I’ve been blogging for about 3 years but still I need to explore more about SEO. It plays a very important role to us as bloggers.

    In fairness, I agree with you that “SUCCESS is the greatest enemy of Learning.”

    • @Jhoveleen,

      SEO is a must for bloggers who wants to have visitors on their site. I have been blogging for more than 5 years and I think without SEO it will be hard to get visitors from my sites since lots of competition nowadays compared 5 years ago 🙂

    • @Jhoveleen,

      BTW I get “SUCCESS is the greatest enemy of Learning.” from Miles Munroe

  • wow! I apply ko tong tips 😀

    • @Blair Villanueva,

      Great I hope it will work.. Since we need to study more on the technicalities of those new techniques..

  • so it really helps when someone +1 your post, by the way what do you mean by ranking penalty due to aggressive SEO,

    • @chrisair,

      Over linking is also bad fr SEO. Showing Google that link is not made through natural way will make your site on Google Sand Box or I can say Google Grave Yard. Links shall be done in a way that as if it comes natural. That is why it is preferred to make post to post link exchange rather than side bar link exchange

  • My blog is PR2 but I don’t know how can I see if my visitors came from Google. BTW, im using WP.

    In blogger, you can see that easily. But, I have no idea for WP.

  • never an SEO writer but this one helps alot. hehe. I wonder why my blogs are currently number 1 on google search engine for the past year already.


    • @Journeys and Travels,

      It is because their blogs has been optimized in SEO in a right way. Via links and social media optimization

  • this sure will be beneficial to those who want to improve their SEO
