The 2014 Pest Control Blog in review

Well here it is.. Pest Control SEO has made it through another year… barely. According to my blogging habits, the site has received significantly less attention this year, in fact, it has been about 3 months since my last post. YIKES! So in a feeble attempt to keep some gas in the tank, here is my 2014 review:

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,500 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Baby foot print butt

Butterflies … but can you see what kind? Look closely. What are the butterflies made of…… .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. … ….they’re the foot prints of children! Wouldn’t this make a fantastic idea for a parent (Mothers day, Fathers day) for a God parent … or for Grandparents!

Links, Links, and more Links…

When will this link thing in SEO end? Will it ever end? One thing is for sure, there are a lot of guys still trying to get links. So today I give you a copy of an email sent to me by an SEO company offering their services.

 

__________________________________________________________________

Dear Webmaster,

 

I manage several high reputation affiliate websites and would like to offer you a contextual link exchange deal, which can be done in several ways:

1) Content in exchange for links:

As a company which provides accurate content to our partners, we are now offering to provide you with FREE, relevant and original content articles at any requested field (we have dedicated content writers for this purpose). In exchange we only require 2 text links from each published article for as long the article is published and at the minimum of 2 years. Each article will have a unique content, will be only used only once and will never be given to any of our other partners.

2) Exchange of contextual links:

A simple exchange of links from within relevant text on various pages of our websites. The key words will be pre-selected. We can negotiate the number and quality of pages in which the links will be created.

3) “Partner Page” links:

A very basic level of link exchange, this way we can still establish long-term relevant links, but with lower SEO exposure.

 

Thanks Regards,

HELLO! He is a spammer. Do you expect anything more than spammy links?

As tempting as it may seem, guys that spam your inbox probably aren’t the most diligent hard working individuals. They want the quick hit and runs. They want the easy way out. They look at mass numbers. You may get a lot of links, but link volume isn’t everything. The days of massive link volumes are gone. You want quality links not quantity of links.
