I read on Matt Cuts blog that you shouldn't use nofollow attributes within your own website. It should only be used in outside links.
hello I create my website and worked on back linking but i am not getting much more traffic as i expect. Can you tell what should i do for getting lots of traffic.
PageRank is an algorithim google invented that assesses the strength of a website. The algorithim evaluates a site on a scale of n/a to 10 with 0 being the lowest/weakest and 10 being the highest/strongest. We can check our site's rank by using a pagerank checker tool.
I actually just added a breadcrumb to post pages yesterday and added redundancy by accident. The breadcrumb was fine, but the last bit was just linking to the page the reader was on. Recursion: Good in programming, not so good in navigation. And now it's fixed. :)
Thanks Obaidul. I also try to use related post plugins which can really help improve your internal linking, and helps a lot of older posts from getting lost on archived pages.
You are absolutely right, Aaron. Actually, related linking falls under the 'Link Categorization' section which is the #1 point in my post. Link categorizations includes everything that we can do to enhance the navigational structure of the website, maintaining the 'user task flow' throughout the website. Regards, Obaidul
I have to say, it's a secret others don't know of. They spend too much time on the aesthetics and not the navigation structure. For me that's the hardest to decide on. This one deserves an RT.
Most important for me was #5, I haven't updated my sitemaps for a while so today I went around to all 15 sites and redid them. I had one sitemap that was 2 years old for my most profitable website, I redid that one and resubmitted about a month ago and saw an increase of about 2,000 visitors a month from Google. Interesting point with redundancy, I know for a fact that one of my sites that each post links to itself 3 times (one of which is a stupid read more link that I am still trying to figure out how to modify).
Great post Obaidul. Point 2 regarding Anchor Text is particularly relevant. To many business owners rely upon the 'mechanics' side of SEO - the meta data / sitemapping, but ignore the opportunities available through smart-thinking in relation to integrating SEO into content and layout.
