Creating an SEO Strategy, Link Buidling via Comments, YouTube Comments, Speedlink 46:2013

by DiTesco

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great and productive week. This week, one of the most noteworthy news for the SEO enthusiasts was a video from Maile Ohye, Googles´s Developer Programs Tech Lead. Maile describes how to create a holistic SEO strategy inclusive of all your company’s online channels (website, blog, social media channels). The interesting bit is the way she does this. She uses the mock company, Webmaster Central, and pretends to be the SEO manager of the Webmaster Central Blog.

Creating a SEO strategy (with Webmaster Tools!)

On another front, but still relevant to SEO, Matt Cutts responds to an interesting question:

Google’s Webmaster Guidelines discourage forum signature links but what about links from comments? Is link building by commenting against Google Webmaster Guidelines? What if it’s a topically relevant site and the comment is meaningful?

Are all comments with links spam?

A couple of months ago, YouTube announced that they were revamping the way people see comments under videos. Not surprisingly, Google+ played a large role in the revamp effort, meaning that in order to comment on YouTube, you had to do it via your G+ profile. Fast forward some weeks and as it so seems, many are really very “angry” about that move, some going as far as creating videos providing their “… Thoughts on Google+”. Warning, video contains language that may not be appropriate for you. How about you? What do you think about the changes they made on the way you make comments on YouTube? I think it was a way to “force” people to use more G+, despite Google saying otherwise.Youtube comments G+My Thoughts On Google+

As usual, in no particular order:

Social/Blogging/Small Business Bites

More cool stuff!

That’s it! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

My YouTube account says I joined on October 2006, and in the 7 years that I have had it I don’t recall ever commenting on anything. I don’t know why I guess I go there watch a few videos and leave without thinking about it.

It wouldn’t surprise me if they were hoping to get more people joining though. Anonymous comments can be a little crazy. Not always, but I see some pretty wild ones not only on YouTube, but elsewhere too.

Google has been pushing the use your real name and be more social thing for awhile now. Someone could easily make a fake account on YouTube or G+ just as well to comment if they really wanted to. Whether they would go through all that or not I don’t know.

I personally don’t have a problem with allowing anonymous comments, and if the YouTube account holder wants to allow them then then they should be allowed to. It would be nice to have the choice.

Hello DiTesco,
I’m seriously appreciate this great SEO Strategy. After Google Panda and Penguin Updates, Google changed the SEO Strategy & most of webmasters became confused. Now the main point is make good quality links only not any spam, Bad & junk links. Google just like only Good quality & strong quality links only.

I wonder if having comments show on Youtube and G+ will do anything to tone down the oftentimes vicious comments. I think linking Youtube to Facebook would have a stronger affect, since people’s reputation online is usually based on Facebook more than any other site. Of course, that’s not going to happen, but it would be interesting to watch.

Hi DiTesco,

Thanks for this information, I absolutely had no clue that you had to use your Google+ profile to comment on YouTube videos. I’ve never really taken the time to comment on videos.

But I was looking into getting started with it. I think that overall it can be a great thing. This means that most people will probably leave a good useful comment as opposed to just spamming a bunch of videos.

Thanks for the information and I hope you have a great day.
