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.

Amazon Wardrobe allows users to try it before they buy


The Answer to the recent Google cache problem, why is your website not showing up in the Google cache?

Like many people I was very concerned that Google was not showing many websites in the Google cache, which is not a good thing. I wish Google would not be so secretive and would have just explained the simple answer to people and tell them not to worry.

So I had to go onto Google's Webmaster Central and deal with the incorrect and ignorant trolls on the Google Webmaster Central Forum. My strong advice is to stay away from this forum if possible, because most of the people on that forum or most forums are incorrect ignorant trolls, that need to get a live. Of course the worst trolls are in denial that they are trolls. Also the stupid trolls try to gang up against useful people like me, e.g. one troll will ask you a stupid question, then the second troll will criticize you for trying to explain the correct answer to the first trolls question.  This forum has both male and female trolls, I thought most trolls are men.

There are a few very smart people on the forum, however 80% are terrible and know nothing useful.

The non technical answer is that this is a minor Google defect and that your website is really in the Google cache, you just cannot see it. If you delete the "www." from the Google cache results then you will see your site in the Google cache.

The smartest person on the forum new the correct answer, please see the screen shot below.

Trudeau says Oct 17 marijuana legalization date will give provinces time for 'smooth transition'


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:

Recordings of crying children, videos show inside immigration processing facility

I do not know the answer to the USA immigration problem, as it is a very difficult problem. I understand why people want to enter the USA, however we cannot have open borders.

Keeping crying children in cages and separated from their parents is the incorrect answer.
This is morally wrong.
It is child abuse by the USA government.
Warning: the recordings of crying children is very disturbing.

Is Russia's President Putin involved with cyber attacks - Former British intelligence chief warns the West of Putin’s aggression

I am not affiliated with any political party, so I am not a Democrat and I am not a Republican. I do not believe that USA President Trump is involved with any Russian collusion and he is not helping Russia or Russian President Putin.
I also believe Mr. Putin is the richest and most clever man in the world. Ever notice how nice Mr. Putin is to the leaders of Switzerland? Could it be that Mr. Putin has many billions of dollars in Swiss bank accounts?
Russian President Putin denies all these "evil spy" allegations, and denies all cyber spy allegations, however the British intelligence agencies have done a lot to investigate and bust Putin. The Russian spy killed in London died from a poison only Russian spy's would have access to and it is very difficult to believe Mr. Putin was not involved with this murder.

NFL Cheerleaders are filing a lawsuit to protect their rights, Gloria Allred is there attorney

There are interesting and mixed comments about this video. It seems to me these women have a strong legal case.
Many men do not like Gloria Allred, however she is an effective attorney for women's rights. Also I know Gloria Allred does not care who likes her or does not like her as a person. I do not think Gloria Allred would have accepted this legal case unless she thought she would win.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Ranking Fluctuations: What to Expect and How to React, Should you respond to a Google penalty?

This video below provides excellent information from Rand Fishkin who sees enormous amounts of SEO data and ranking results. I agree 100% with everything Rand says in his excellent video (below). I have been in the SEO business since the Internet first started and before Google even became a company, so I have seen many changes with Google over the last 18+ years.

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" if Google gives your website a manual penalty via https://www.google.com/webmasters/
Important Note: Many webmasters do not trust Google or the Google search console and if Google does give your website a fair or unfair penalty (Google mistake), you may not be happy with Google communications and you should have concerns about Google treating you fairly. Therefore you may be better off just ignoring Google, which means you will need to build a new website. You can still use your website that Google penalized, however it will not rank well in Google or it may be deleted from Google completely. I have personally seen Google make a mistake, then deny they made a mistake and refuse to fix it.
Thinking Google would never admit to or fix their defects and mistakes, then surprisingly sometimes (30% chance) Google will finally fix their mistakes, without admitting any wrong doing. This is why I generally advise business owners and webmasters to not trust Google and just ignore Google completely if possible when they unfairly penalize your website. However if your website did in fact violate Google guidelines, then you should fix the violation and submit to Google for reconsideration, then usually Google gives you a difficult time, and delays their responses. Finally after too long waiting Google will take the valid penalty off of your website. 

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.

Google is a Monopoly and the FTC should investigate and regulate Google, Google Penalties, Smartphone Brain Hacking,

I hope 60 minutes will release the complete video about Google being a monopoly. I watched it on TV and it was very interesting even though they gave a lot of air time to the lame CEO of crappy and defective Yelp. Since Yelp has never been able to tell a fake review from a real review their content is pure spam and should be taken out of Google completely.
Frankly I would be happy if Google forced Yelp to go out of business, which is very likely.


However there are many thousands of websites being treated unfairly by Google and I do want the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to put new regulations on Google like the European Union has. Google continues to unfairly censor small website owners and the only way to stop Google's evil censorship is via the FTC. 

I will give you two (really 1.5) specific examples of Google's unfair censorship, 7meg.net and Quit4Good.com. There are many more sites that Google has abused and unfairly censored. Google complains about communist China's unfair censorship, yet Google is worse than what communist China does regarding censorship. Google is the largest censor of content in the world and this is a huge problem because Google is a monopoly and Google controls access to the Internet. Just do a Google search for "7meg.net" to see exactly what I mean. Why is 7meg.net missing from Google for over 2 years?
This penalty is 100% for sure an unfair manual penalty from Google, however the unfair penalty against Quit4Good.com is hopefully part of a huge Google mistake with automated algorithms, at first I thought this was Google unfairly attacking me with a manual penalty as they have done in the past. However then I noticed the very large number of sites this impacts. It seems strange no other SEO blogs are talking about this, however some of the highest traffic SEO Blogs are Google ass kissers or more focused on articles that do not matter so much, like content editing, meta tags, etc. To me this is an important SEO story, and I only saw a few people on Google Webmaster Forums talking about it. I think this is a terrible automated defective Google algorithm causing all these sites to be taken out of the Google cache. I would start to be worried if your website does not show up in the Google search results, now they show in the search results. The not being in the cache is the Google defect, that hopefully Google will fix quickly.


The content of 7meg.net is fine and Google should have never manually unfairly penalized this site and thousands of other websites have also been abused by Google for no valid reason.
This is exactly why the FTC needs to investigate and regulate Google.

Sadly I could give many more examples of Google defects and mistakes, yet Google is in denial of their mistakes and rarely fixes their defects. Just look at these sites that should be penalized by Google:


 socialmediabadgeverification.com/services/buy-positive-google-reviews/

smmboostservice.com/product/buy-google-reviews/



I will make a joke about the above.
How long do you think it would take Google to penalize me if I created a web page that said I will sell you Google Reviews?
Answer: 9 minutes

The Google SPAM department is becoming worse and making many more mistakes penalizing innocent websites and there is no way to protest to Google and ask them to fix their defects and mistakes.
So if Google unfairly censors and penalizes your website, I think it is best to give up and delete the site and build a new site and hope Google does not unfairly penalize (censor) your new website. This is a very sad situation as I believe many Google employees want to "do the right thing" and that is why they built the Search Console, unfortunately the evil Googler's have ruined this and that is why most webmasters are afraid to use Google's webmaster tools and the Google "search console".  Google does not seem to understand this and Google does not understand why people are afraid to use the Google tools. Webmasters are correct to never trust Google to treat them fairly.

Google has also dramatically lowered the amount of money that they pay webmasters to run Google Ads on their websites. I know publishers that used to earn $200,000 per year from Google and over the last 5-10 years that amount has dropped to $10,000 per year for the same amount and quality of web traffic. Google can do this because they have publishers agree to accept a secret Google formula for payments. Which is ridiculous, so do not waste your time trying to run Google ads on your websites.

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.


Dennis Rodman gets emotional after Trump-Kim summit

This is a very weird and strange thing to realize that Dennis Rodman is our best source for insights into the personality of Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump. Who would have ever have guessed this would play out this way. Even Kim Jong Un said it may appear to many people as a strange science fiction movie and that it is surreal. Yet I believe people should be positive and give this a chance to succeed.  I think this new agreement has a 50/50 chance at success. Also after watching this Dennis Rodman video I have a new and improved perspective of Dennis Rodman, he may not understand all the facts and details of the problems faced making this agreement work, yet Dennis Rodman is very emotional about this and trying his best to do "the right thing".
Mr. Rodman desires worldwide peace and happiness without war as we all do.

I am thinking about starting a new Blog to Expose Google's Evil Deeds, unfair business practices and website owner abuse, please email your Google abuse stories to me

Update: 6-14-18

I was incorrect and a few of my examples are really not penalized by Google, please read the following article for the explanation:

However my website 7meg.net, has been unfairly manually penalized by Google for over 2 years, and I know of many more people with similar stories of being treated unfairly by Google. So this is still a problem that I hope the Federal Trade Commission will investigate. I could list more sites, however I decided it is best to focus all the attention on 7meg.net as the "poster site" for Google abuse.  

Original Article:
I am sick and tried of Google unfairly censoring, bullying, using unfair business practices, and unfairly penalizing websites that follow all Google guidelines, please email Tom Forrest with you horror stories of Google abuse and I may publish them for you on this or a new website or blog I am creating.

Why does Google have guidelines if the Google employees refuse to follow them?

I have already received positive responses from webmasters and business owners about this article and it has only been up for a few minutes. I sincerely appreciate your support, and let's work together to stop Google's unfair business practices. Please forward a link to this article to as many people as possible.

I think the founders of Google would be outraged, angry, extremely disappointed and sad if they investigate this, as Google is being very EVIL by treating webmasters that follow all Google guidelines so unfairly. I emailed some details of these Google unfair business practices (unfair penalties) to Larry Page and asked for his help. I think he is a good person and would put a quick stop to this Google abuse if he learns about it. I gave Larry Page a few detailed examples of sites that follow all Google guidelines and have been fine with Google for 15 years. I am sad as I see many recent mistakes Google has made by unfairly penalizing innocent websites, and by not penalizing the websites that deserve to be penalized. In fairness to Google I do see some websites that have recently been penalized by Google that deserve to be penalized, however most of the worst evil spam sites and low quality link builders have gone untouched by Google, even after they have been reported to Google. I also see the results of the worst low quality link builders from India having tremendously good ranking results for their clients in the Google search results. Unfortunately this will lead to big increases in the amount of new low quality link building from India that these people do and none of their link building is merit based. In my experience the largest amount and worst quality paid link building is done in India and I do not understand why Google does not focus on their biggest problem. This will harm the Google search results going forward.


I am sensitive about this topic as I have seen these sort of Google defects and unfair penalties for many years and this is why I do not trust Google. I just want Google to treat all people fairly and Google thinks they do, which is not correct. I document many Google unfair penalties and censorship mistakes on this blog.

It is weird because even though I criticize Google, I need to admit I have made a huge amount of money by investing in Google many years ago when Google first became a public company, and I must thank Google and the founders of Google for my good financial results with Google stock. This has always given me cognitive dissonance because on one hand I am unhappy with Google and at the same time I love Google for making me a lot of money. 

If Google has used unfair business practices against you or unfairly penalized your website then you should file a complaint against Google with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Please report unfair business practices of Google to the FTC by using the link below.

Anthony Bourdain dead at 61, he committed suicide by hanging himself in a Kaysersberg France hotel room

Every year 800,000 people commit suicide. 

People who are depressed feel hopeless which leads to suicide. Please seek help as depression and hopelessness can be treated by medical professionals, there is hope.


Anthony Bourdain was in the Le Chambard hotel in Kaysersberg France. He was working on his CNN TV show when his close friend and chef Eric Ripert found Mr. Bourdain dead in his hotel room. Anthony hung himself, and left no note or letter explaining why he killed himself.
As a fan of Mr. Bourdain's TV show, I had no idea he was depressed and I would have never suspected he might decide to take his own life. It just proves no matter how successful and fun a persons life my appear to be, we do not know about their inner mental illness demons that may be impacting a persons thoughts.
There was one small warning sign that Mr. Bourdain suffered from depression. While he was in Argentina he saw a therapist and made the following comments:
He went on to visit a therapist and talk about his relationship with food and how it sometimes sends him into a depression. “I will find myself in an airport, for instance, and I'll order an airport hamburger. It's an insignificant thing, it's a small thing, it's a hamburger, but it's not a good one,” he explained to the therapist. “Suddenly I look at the hamburger and I find myself in a spiral of depression that can last for days."
I feel very sorry for his 11 year old daughter as she may have mental issues for the rest of her life due to this tragedy.

Conan Visits Taco Bell Headquarters in Irvine CA, then goes to Inglewood California to eat soul food

This is an old video from Conan that has 10,000,000 views. I do not like Taco Bell food, however once or twice a year I try it to see what is new.
This is one of Conan's funniest videos. 
Conan makes IT guru Chris Hayes' dreams come true with a visit to the Taco Bell test kitchens.
Conan is extremely popular online, however his TV ratings are not so good (poor). So in 2019 Conan's TV show will be cut from 60 minutes to 30 minutes and Conan will travel and make even more online videos of his adventures. This is what the general public desires and it means we will see many more funny Conan videos online in 2019.

List of Directory Submission Sites That Google Likes

By Tom Forrest
List of Directory Submission Sites.
Updated: June 12, 2018

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.

1.     http://www.AllBusinessNow.com
2.     http://www.Clasione.com
3.     http://vlib.org
4.     https://www.pickNbuy.com
5.     http://www.CybrHome.com
6.     http://www.seekon.info
7.     http://www.jasminedirectory.com
8.     http://www.botw.org

12.   http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus
13.   http://www.SearchPure.org
14.   http://www.AliveDirectory.com


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.

Why Links Are So Important to the Internet

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

History of the Internet and Leonard Kleinrock one of the Fathers of the Internet

Wikipedia should mention that Claude Shannon was one of the greatest engineers of all time and was also the main Professor of Leonard Kleinrock when he was a student at MIT. At the age of 21-years old, Claude Shannon invented modern Digital Circuit Design Theory which lead to the computer development that has impacted our world in a gigantic way.


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.
Click here if you would like to learn about PageRank from a real expert, me.

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.
