Why Links Are So Important to the Internet

I Did Not Invent the Internet, However the Man Who Did Links to My Blog

I will show you an example of "good merit based" link building that Google likes.
About the best backlink you could obtain in the software, Internet and SEO industry would be a link from a prestigious university, from a top expert and a famous award winning distinguished person.

Please click here, then click in the #1 video listed on the webpage and see where it links you to.


The following is an excellent article and basic overview of links and why they are so important to the web.
"As an emerging industry, SEO is a field ripe for new college graduates ... The first thing a new SEO must learn is how Google operates. This means learning the value of links in search..."

One small correction I would make to Cory's article is that powerful backlinks are still by far the most important factor in the Google algorithms and they will continue to be because there is science behind this.

The reason search engines will most likely never change this is that this methodology works great, and no other technique works better. Why Do you think Google named it PageRank?
The Wikipedia article for PageRank is wrong and defective just like many of the Wikipedia articles. Because the Wikipedia editors are incompetent and do not know what they are doing.

 Link Building

The people that tell you links are not important any longer are complete Dumb-asses and you should never listen to them.
I am not sure how I can make this point any clearer.

For more advanced information and training about link building or for help, please email me.

SEOWA.com and Future GotoTom SEO Tool Development Plans and 3rd Party Product Recommendations

Press Release for SEOWA.com

Screen Shot of our New SEOWA.com/Tools
Note: Please click on the screen shot and it will look bigger and better.


We have been using our propriety SEO tools for many years and we are now offering our expert advice, tutorials and SEO tools to the world. If you want to achieve top search engine ranking results please sign up today.

SEO can be divided into two main categories of work to be completed. I will explain and give a few examples here. Google reads my blog and sometimes they treat SEO experts unfairly so if you want more details you will need to sign up to SEOWA.com.
The first part of SEO in on-page optimization, the second important part is high quality link building. This is refereed to in the SEO industry as off-page optimization. Both are very critical to ranking success. I have improved the ranking of clients by helping their on-page optimization. E.g. a clients site was #359 on Google. With improved on-site optimization they went to #8 (on the first page) and using my proprietary link building methods the client soon became #1. My company has achieved thousands of #1 rankings of the last 15-years.
Another teaser tip to hopefully convince you to sign up with SEOWA is about Meta Tags.

I hear want-to-be SEO people say all sorts of crazy things about how important Meta Tags are, that is complete bullshit. Google only uses one meta tag and ignores all the others. 
To show you an example of how the one meta tag Google does use works please do a Google search for "Flower Delivery".
You see FTD is #1 or maybe they drop to #2 for a while. Please also note what the search results description is. This is controlled by the meta name="description"
meta name="description" content="Order fresh flowers online with same day delivery or visit local FTD florists. Shop for flowers, sweets, gifts and gift baskets by occasion & season."

There is one other thing you must do in order to make the above work properly.
Guess what you need to do for me to tell you the answer?



We set up a new website named GotoTomSEOtools.com that will show good SEO tools we build and also 3rd party tools we have heard great reports about.
It will be about positive recommendations of useful methods and strategies for successful Internet marketing.
$29 per year for an annual subscription.

On SEOWA.com I reveal my secret proprietary SEO techniques that I have used to achieve many thousands of #1 rankings for our clients over the last 14-years. So you will have the tools to perform the best on-site optimization and you will also learn about off-site optimization.

List of Directory Submission Sites That Google Likes

By Tom Forrest
List of Directory Submission Sites.
List of directories that Google likes and that follow Google Guidelines.

Google has cracked down on web directories that violate Google guidelines.  You should not place your website on any free and low quality directories or websites, you need fewer directory listings with better quality in order to be successful with Google, Yahoo and Bing. Please read the following new article about effective SEO Link Building to learn more.

So I decided I should give people a list of Internet directories that Google thinks are valid and that if you obtained a listing from these directories it would help you with direct traffic generation and also as a "good" backlink as far as Google is concerned. The Directories below are valuable worldwide and all countries should consider submitting their website to these top quality Directories.

Comments from Matt Cutts of Google on what to consider when submitting to a Directory.
When considering submitting to a directory, I’d ask questions like:
- Does the directory reject urls?
If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site.
- What is the quality of urls in the directory?
Suppose a site rejects 25% of submissions, but the urls that are accepted/listed are still quite low-quality or spammy. That doesn’t speak well to the quality of the directory.
- If there is a fee, what’s the purpose of the fee?
For a high-quality directory, the fee is primarily for the time/effort for someone to do a genuine evaluation of a url.

The Optimal Low Cost Mobile Office System, the Best Inexpensive Technology to Use for Your Mobile Office

I have been traveling a lot on business lately and soon will be going on a five month trip around the USA.

On this business trip I am driving with my dog Bella and staying at a combination of hotels, airbnb.com, VRBO.com, etc. I like to use Tripping.com .

So I need a very powerful, light, easy to use and low cost mobile office. I started thinking about this several years ago when my friend John C. was traveling around the USA, and this also works internationally. If you are driving you can take a lot more interesting office and entertainment technology toys with you compared to flying.

The basic Components I use and Recommend for my Traveling Office are:

Tom Uglow: An Internet Without Screens Might Look Like This

This is a very interesting video and I think some of this gentleman's design ideas are brilliant, plus he has a good name.
So if you watch this and then watch Dr. Kleinrock (1 of 4 fathers of the Internet), then look at my software product for online password management, you will see how I worked with Ariel my Chief Software Architect to implement some of these design ideas into our software. There is no right or wrong in design, just personal preferences. If we make the correct design choices hopefully the people of the world will like our software products. A good design is liked by the majority of people, e.g. when the first Apple ipod and iphone came out, people all over the planet loved the design.
We offer a one year free license with a very cool Google Chrome plugin that safely remembers all your logins and passwords.
It is funny because Mr. Uglow mentions the concept of a "fork" in his presentation, and I agree with him. Too many products especially software products try to do "too much", then they are no longer simple to use like a fork.

I thought of a great picture to demonstrate exactly what I mean in design. The picture below is a fantastic product that is wonderful to use if you are going camping. Also if you make a spreadsheet check box of features this will win over a fork. This is how I feel big "online reviewers" like, cnet, pcworld, etc. approach reviewing software products on the market today.
The truth is 99% of the time I need and want to use a product with less features that is safer and easier to use (e.g. a fork).
More software features and integrated multiple applications does lead to more doorways for hackers to break in.
