SEOWA.com has a New BackLinkChecker, use it on an as needed basis ...

We have a new Backlink Checker in beta test. It seems to be working fine, however it is a new tool in our bag of SEO tools.
We have our other useful SEO tools as part of a $29 per year annual subscription.



After you sign up you can use our high quality backlink checker and be charged by usage. Backlink checkers are very expensive to develop and maintain, so if you can afford it buy a monthly subscription to other good backlink checkers that is great. 
For many people the monthly cost is too expensive and they want to run a backlink report once a month or once every 2-months.
This is where our backlink checker is very beneficial.
We are also developing a Stand Alone version of our Backlink Checker, however it will cost more to use than if you are a subscriber to SEOWA.com 



You should check your websites backlinks at least once a month.

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.

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.


Should the US Government step in and regulate Google now?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Ranking Fluctuations: What to Expect and How to React

This video below provides excellent information from Rand who sees enormous amounts of SEO data and ranking results.

If you see a more serious change in your rankings e.g. going from page 1 to page 5 in 1-day or your domain name is completely removed from Google than you have a serious Google penalty and should contact a SEO expert for help and advice.
Penalties from Google can be from an algorithmic automated software filter that may even check different data bases that Google maintains about links and content. E.g. a duplicate content penalty, or the Google penalty might be a manual penalty given by a real human being (aka the Google SPAM Police). A manual penalty which generally requires writing to Google to understand what the penalty is and how you can fix it. You can contact Google from your "Google Search Console" via https://www.google.com/webmasters/

Google may also send a message regarding your website. There are no "happy" messages that come from Google. Just a message about why Google penalized your website.

Why does Google continue to Unfairly Censor me and my content?

This is a specific example, one of many proving we need new FTC regulations to prevent unfair censorship by Google. The USA government needs to go after and punish Google like the European Union has.


Why are the articles below unfairly censored by Google?

Why would I want to write more articles if I know Google is abusing me?
Should I use a pseudonym and write on a site others own?
Why does "Big Brother Google" do this? 
What percentage of my articles is Google unfairly censoring?






Please read:


Google has in a clever and evil way made it difficult for the general public to see and understand all the many methods Google uses to unfairly censor content. Now the Google command site:https://xyzDomainName.com shows both indexed (in the Google cache) and unindexed pages. It used to only show web pages that are in the Google cache. If a web page is not in the Google index (cache) then this is a form of unfair Google censorship, because the not cached pages will not show up in any Google search for commonly searched keywords, only if you search for the exact url of the webpage as I show below.

If I search for the exact words in my article on Google, I am nowhere to be found because Google has unfairly censored my content. This is why Google is so EVIL.



If I move some of my unfairly censored content to other websites with different owners, than Google indexes it and it is searchable and no longer censored. I would like to be a "fly on the wall" if Google had to explain this to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
Please File a complaint against Google with the FTC.


What adds insult to injury is the crap Google does index, when good content like mine is unfairly censored. Google is extremely defective in this regard. I am not sure if the Google defects are algorithm based or human editing, or perhaps both. Either way Google should be embarrassed when they see the screenshot below.

Why Link Building is the Most Important SEO Ranking Factor, and Why You Still Want and Need to Perform Great On-Site Optimization

Rand Fishkin is a very smart person and one of the top SEO experts in the world.
However I want to offer some important SEO advice before you watch the video below.
Please understand that good merit based link building is by far the #1 ranking factor in SEO.

You can separate SEO into two main categories.
1. On-site SEO - e.g. what you do on your web pages. There is a finite (limited) number of ranking points that you can obtain for good on-site optimization.
2. Off-site SEO - e.g. Link Building, who links to your web pages. There is an infinite (unlimited) number of ranking points that you can obtain from great link building. So a site with superior link building can and will outrank a perfectly on-site optimized website.

This is a good thing and there is science behind this and also why Google created the term and concept of PageRank. This is why Google grew so fast and why their search results are superior to their competitors.

If you do a fantastic job of on-site optimization you will also need less high quality backlinks. It also will help you if you have wonderful SEO Tools to use for both on-site optimization and for off-site optimization.

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 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 businesses from all countries should consider submitting their website to these top quality Directories.

Please see comments below from Matt Cutts of Google on what to consider when submitting to a Directory.
I see many articles that give incorrect SEO information and promote "free directory sites" (low quality), and it is important to study what Google has previously stated. Please understand that Google has penalized many sites for not following the Google guidelines.

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.

Who are the Competitors of Upwork.com? Should you use them?

I am still using and performing ongoing tests with Upwork.com.
I must admit even though ZenDesk gives me poor responses at first, they do not give up and they keep trying. Even after I am very tough on them. I am trying to find reasons to like Upwork.com yet it is difficult as their system needs big improvements in user friendliness.
E.g. I want to send proposals to USA only jobs, so Upwork wants to verify my drivers license and my bank statement. Of course their software for this process is defective, and ZenDesk tells you to keep trying. Then after 3 tries Upwork cuts you off and will not let you try anymore. Next you have to email ZenDesk and send in a screen shot with the Upwork error message. Then ZenDesk support has to reset Upwork.com and then tells you to try again, however not 3 times, and then send them the next error message. Yes I know this entire defective process is totally ridiculous, there are 4 more steps and emails to ZenDesk and finally it works.
ZenDesk did a good job on follow up to make sure it is working properly.


Another big problem with Upwork.com is that you cannot set different prices for different project types in your profile. E.g. I would like to set a price of $120 per hour for advanced programming work and only $70 per hour for on-page search engine optimization (SEO) projects.

Upwork.com is a large service that I do not recommend. You should consider using their competitors.
Upwork.com seems like the "old dying service" and their competitors are eating their lunch. Plus they use ZenDesk which provides average support.

I found another excellent article on this topic:
