Why Links Are So Important to the Internet


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, e.g. the father of the Internet.

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 some of the other Wikipedia articles. However, the editors at Wikipedia did an excellent job on "the history of the Internet". Wikipedia should let me write the article about Google PageRank since I know more about this topic than the current Wikipedia editors do.

 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.

US and UK Citizens Cannot Trust Their News Media, Philippines President Duterte Did NOT Have 6,000 Drug Dealers Killed Without a Trial

It is a sad fact that the major news media sources in the US and the UK cannot be trusted to investigate and report the facts correctly and truthfully.
CNN is the worst and is very biased with lame fake news reports and Anderson Cooper who is a complete joke.
I even emailed Anderson Cooper and told him not to refer to himself as a Journalist because he is not a Journalist, he is a biased liberal democrat.
I am not affiliated with any political party, so I am not a republican and I am not a democrat. I wish I could debate Anderson Cooper as I would intellectually tear him to pieces. He is not a very intelligent person and is also very biased on his CNN TV show. 


Philippines President Duterte did not order 6,000 drug dealers to be killed.

I have friends in the Philippines that I have known for over 12-years and they are extremely honest and trustworthy. My sources in the Philippines have told me there was not a "shoot to kill" order and that the police only killed a few drug dealers in self defense when trying to arrest them.


MANILA — The office of President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines protested on Monday that a New York Times article and photographic essay on the country’s antidrug campaign had been “totally one-sided.”
Martin Andanar, the president’s communications secretary, complained in a statement that the piece, titled “They Are Slaughtering Us Like Animals” and published on Wednesday, “depicts the Philippines as the Wild, Wild West in this part of the world.” He added, “This is farthest from the truth.”


SEO Process Overview

The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) process is an ongoing continuing process that we perform every day for our clients. It is possible to become very successful with top natural/organic SEO rankings, as most (68% to 90%) searchers skip the paid ads. This large range is highly keyword dependent, e.g. if someone is searching for "buy refrigerator" vs. "what is George Washington's birthday". People searching to buy a new refrigerator have a higher probability of clicking on a paid Google Ad, then someone searching for George Washington's birthday.
The other major benefit of natural or organic #1 rankings is you do not have to pay per click.  Google Adwords can run as high as $182+ per click for highly competitive keyword phrases.
We recommend for our clients to use both Google paid Adwords and natural SEO methodologies to increase web site traffic and improve the quality of traffic you receive.

It is very important to stay with SEO methodologies long term in order to achieve the desired results.  If you stop this process your web traffic and rankings will drop, and it may be difficult to recover previous top rankings.
You can not turn natural SEO on and off like you can for Google Adwords.
Also website owners that jump around from SEO Company to SEO Company are in danger of being penalized by Google.
Google is very complex and secret so no one can claim to be 100% accurate as to why Google makes the decisions it does.  However we do know that Google has many different types of penalties some of which are manual and some of which are automated via advanced software algorithms.
The quality of your backlinks and the longer your backlinks are aged, make up major factors in the Google software ranking algorithms.  Please remember if you lose important authoritative backlinks, then you must start the aging process over from the starting line.  Besides losing PageRank, this also brings suspicion from Google, and you do not want that to happen.  Google detects all these changes looking for unnatural suspicious activities.

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.

Willie Huntley Testimony For Jeff Sessions at His Confirmation Hearing


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 over 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.
Search Engine Optimization Webmasters Association (SEOWA.com)
  
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.
I will provide step by step instructions and we will make regular updates to the SEO Tools and methodologies used.
The price will be going up to $259 per year and anyone that signs up for $29 per year now stays at that price forever. 


After you sign up you may also email SEO questions to me and I will post the answers to all questions in the private SEO advice section on SEOWA.com

An Interesting Article About Google Censorship I Found in My Research, I am Doing More Research on this Topic in the Future

By Tom Forrest

I am conducting research in order to write more articles about Internet censorship. I found this interesting article below about Google.
I do know from my own personal experience of Google inappropriately censoring me, that all people worldwide should be very concerned about Google unfairly censoring, punishing (bully) and penalizing the general public, and business owners websites. 
Google executive management has helped me in the past and I sincerely appreciate it. Frankly I do not believe the founders of Google support unfair censorship so hopefully any bad Google employees will be terminated. Perhaps because Google is so big it is difficult to control mistakes regarding censorship. For example I have an ongoing problem of Google inappropriately censoring OnlinePasswordManager.com and .org, because Google does not like an article I wrote. Also the listing in the Google Chrome store for my online password manager is missing in the search results sometimes.
I try to be nice and when Google manually takes the unfair censorship off of me, I edit my articles to be less negative about Google. To me that is the polite thing to do, however the next day the Google automated system over writes the manual fix, and since Google has no customer service department, how can I complain?
My only recourse is to write a truthful yet negative article about Google. It seems very silly to me that Google does not have any customer service department at all. I think it leads to much of the criticism of Google and if they fixed this their public relations would be improved. If Google had a way to learn about their embarrassing mistakes, then they could fix them. The current system from the Google webmaster tools control panel, or whatever they call it today is of no use in these unfair censorship problems and perhaps Google needs better ways to audit bad employees, e.g. a manager in a different group must approve a serious censorship penalty. Since Google is so secretive we have no idea about what processes Google uses to decide which websites to censor and this leads to unfair terrible punishment of innocent websites and people. How does Google make sure they are implementing their censorship penalties fairly? Who audits and regulates Google to prevent abuse of webmasters and small business owners?


Is Google the Worlds Biggest Censor?
Does Google Need Government Regulation in Order to Protect Small Business Owners?

If Google were just another mom-and-pop shop with a sign saying "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone," that would be one thing. But as the golden gateway to all knowledge, Google has rapidly become an essential in people's lives – nearly as essential as air or water. We don't let public utilities make arbitrary and secretive decisions about denying people services; we shouldn't let Google do so either.

Google does not want communist China censoring them, however it seems to me that sometimes Google is okay with their censoring of people and acting in a similar manner to (like) communist China. Google has brought the government to their doorstep by doing a defective job of protecting people's "freedom of speech" and treating all people equally and fairly regarding Google penalties. A Google penalty is an example of how Google implements censorship. E.g. Denying your content access to the "golden gateway of knowledge", which Google controls.

Please help protect "freedom of speech" and share this blog post and article with your friends and business associates.

Interesting Interview with Brian Stelter about Megyn Kelly moving to NBC

This is an interesting interview, and has a funny yet amazing scene from the start of the 2016 Presidential election. It is interesting to watch from a business perceptive to see how Donald Trump handles extreme criticism, e.g. how he deals with objections. It is also interesting to see how other "professional" politicians are brought down and are forced to drop out of campaigns for far less then President-Elect Trump does. This also makes Trump unique in all American history. Frankly in the early days of the 2016 presidential elections, I gave Trump zero chance as did most people.

Excellent Presentation About Map Making Problems and Different Methods Used to Flatten the Globe. Why All World Maps are Wrong

I never studied map making much in my life and it must have been 20+ years ago that I took a college course about map making and the many complex problems that map makers face. Nothing has changed in hundreds of years as far as these problems are concerned. This video does an outstanding job of explaining this and makes it interesting for people to watch. A Cartographer is a person who creates maps.
This is a good introduction to map making for people all over the world to watch.

Streaming Global and USA News Sources

I like to watch news and put up a few good news links. These change over time so it is work to update them.

I pay for and use YouTubeRed, so I do not see any advertisements or commercials on YouTube and I love it. It costs $10 per month for YouTubeRed.

I put Bloomberg Global News, Al Jazeera, Fox, Sky News Australia, and Global Sky streaming news, etc. on the Nav Bar (menu) of https://GotoTom2.blogspot.com



I also have an older link of good online news sources on GotoTom.blogspot.com, however some of the ABC videos stopped working, there are however other interesting news sources on this page.

SEO Link Building Service

SEO Link Building Service and Strategies
We receive thousands of phone calls, emails, link building questions and listing requests every year about SEO and link building techniques. Eighty percent or more of the people contacting us have terribly wrong ideas about what works and what is important for outstanding results in the major search engines. Below are details, samples, and history of people contacting us with their requirements. Hopefully, you will find useful SEO information that will help your company grow and increase your profits.

Many people phone our company saying, "I need low cost SEO, low quality backlinks, and tons of cheap links."

I respond, "Why?".... They say, "I want to out rank my competitors."
They think it is a pure numbers game, all links are equal and you get more and you win.  This is the wrong link building strategy, and these "cheap low quality techniques" will cause your website to be penalized by Google.

These people want fast outstanding results; they want to be #1 for competitive keyword phrases in 1-5 months.  Most people still do not understand that Google has penalized almost all of these cheap, crappy links and many people still do not even realize to vary their anchor text.  So the fastest way to be penalized by Google is to put up 1000+ low quality links on crappy websites and low quality Directories. 
Important Note: "If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site." - Matt Cutts of Google

Then use the exact same anchor text for all these poor quality backlinks. People who do this might as well just email Google and say "please penalize my site, I am a dumb-ass and I deserve to be penalized."

You need and want to be on Top Quality Sites and Directories.

Sometimes Technology Just Does Not Work the Way We Hope it Will


How Safe Are Password Managers?

This video is very funny and makes an important point.


Based on all the past problems Sony has faced with hackers and the fact that Sony did not do a good job of protecting passwords.  Furthermore with the general public concerned about the US government spying on citizens I thought it would be important to explain why everyone should be using an Online Password Manager for business, personal, SEO and marketing. No one has your passwords except you. We can not see or retrieve them because they are stored in a secure military 256k encrypted vault in the cloud.


Is a War in Space Between the USA and Russia or China Coming Soon?

War in space is a very interesting topic to me as I used to design navigation and guidance systems for intercontinental ballistic missiles. I understand most people do not have a background like mine and that not all people will be as interested in this topic as I am. Furthermore, I am surprised that the USA military gave so much access and information to this reporter.
I think the USA military must want Russia and China to know that the American people are being educated about what is happening in space and how important this is to our lifestyle on earth. So hopefully many millions of people will see this outstanding video.
