Episode-31- What exactly is “link juice” and how does it work?

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , — JackSpirko @ 7:48 pm

So what is link juice? What do SEOs (search engine optimizers) mean when they say they are looking to gain link juice? It really comes down to the power delivered from one web page to the next via a link.

Link Power or Juice is Really Comes Down To…

  • How many links the page linking to you has linking in to it
  • The quality of the pages linking in and how many links they themselves have
  • How many links the page linking to you has on it
  • Weather or not the you link back to that page

There are more factors of course tune into the video or audio to hear how to simplify this concept and use it in your link building.  You will also hear about “reverse depth” the following image should help with that explaination.

Episode-19- Building Links with Article Marketing

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , — JackSpirko @ 6:27 pm

I received the following question from one our members here at…

“Jack, My #1 mission with my blogs is to always provide quality content. Give readers a reason to want to come back. That’s my main focus at the moment in the infancy of my blogs. I do want to earn some money (of course) but I try for now to stay focused on providing quality content.

But I also understand the importance of driving traffic to your site. What are your thoughts on using sites like to drive traffic to your main sites. I’ve heard some say you should post 80% of your articles on ezinearticles with links back to your sites and try to write 100 ezinearticles in the first month or 2.

I know being an entrepreneur is hard work, but is this really what it takes. I’m kinda leaning towards the philosophy of building a loyal group of followers over time by providing quality content. Sorry this is so long….hit me back if you get a chance.”

This video is my response to that question along with questions like, What effect on traffic and search engine ranking does building links on sites like have on your site?  How many articles should you write for such sites?  How much is too much?  Why should you spend more time writing for your own site than a third party site?
