Schengen Area Countries Pros and Cons - Then Schengen Agreement needs to be updated and changed

By Bill Kirk

What is the Schengen Agreement?

There are only pros for the EU member states as a tourist, however there are many cons for tourists from all other countries, e.g. Canada, USA, Mexico, Russia, China, Japan, etc.

The Schengen Agreement needs to be updated and changed. Croatia would be making a big mistake if they join Schengen, if they do join it would dramatically harm tourism to Croatia. Many USA citizens and people from other non-Schengen countries that are tourists spending a lot of money in Europe, and are tourists on longer trips to Europe need to go to non-Schengen countries because of the stupid 90 day limit imposed by the outdated, vague and silly Schengen rules. So these USA tourists go to Croatia for 90 days after spending 90 days in the Schengen countries. If Croatia joins Schengen it will harm tourism to Croatia, as Americans and tourists from other countries would not be allowed to visit Croatia if their 90 days in Schengen countries has expired.

Originally, the Schengen treaties and the rules adopted under them operated independently from the European Union.
Schengen is now a core part of EU law, and all EU member states without an opt-out which have not already joined the Schengen Area are legally obliged to do so when technical requirements have been met.
The Schengen Agreement needs to increase the 90 day limit to 180 or 360 days. This 90 limit is harming tourism in all the Schengen countries. Some tourists would like to stay 90 days in each Schengen country. So if I wanted to take a huge amount of money and stay at fancy 5 star hotels in 20 different Schengen countries for 60-90 days in each country, think about how such tourism money is lost for Europe.

The European Union (EU) should update and change the current Schengen Agreement as these terrible rules have already lost billions of tourism Euros ($$$) for all EU member countries. 

There are other problems with the Schengen Agreement and it is not working as designed. Please watch the video below to see what I mean.

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.

List of Directory Submission Sites That Google Likes

By Tom Forrest
List of Directory Submission Sites.
Updated: November 5, 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.

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.

By Bill Kirk

First we will start with a video and the basics of how to grow Saffron.





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


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 on 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.
The importance of building high-quality links has never been higher. The need to understand and implement high-quality campaigns is essential if you're going to compete and thrive online, and that isn't going to change any time soon. This guide is designed to get you going quickly and in the right direction.

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?

 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.
