What are the Poor Quality Links?

Poor quality link building, also known as black hat SEO, involves numerous forms of spamming and is designed to artificially inflate a website’s search engine rankings. White hate SEO, on the other hand, focuses on more relevant and authoritative link building by building relationships with clients.

What does poor quality link building involve?
  1. Spam forum posting
  2. Excessive keyword use (a common theme in the early days of SEO but now considered spam)
  3. Fake websites and profiles
  4. Excessive submissions to directories
These methods can sometimes give companies a ‘fast-track’ boost to the top of Google temporarily, however, they are very risky and unethical.  Certain SEO agencies use these methods to make a quick profit before moving on to apply their deceptive tactics to new customers.

SEO Musts for Local Business

The Internet might be global in nature, but if your business is local, it makes no sense to concentrate on global reach, when your customers live in your city, or even in your neighborhood. For local businesses getting a global reach is a waste of resources. Instead, you should concentrate on the local community. You might be asking how you can do it, when the Web is global and Google doesn't classify sites according to their location. Here is how you can go local with SEO:

1. Use your location in your keywords. 
The first trick is to use your location in your keywords. For example, if you are in London and you sell car insurance, your most important keyphrase should be “car insurance London” because this keyphrase contains your business and your location and will drive people who are looking for car insurance in London in particular.
