The Penguin Initiative: Google and Online Marketing

Tags:
(Posted on Apr 2, 2013 at 10:30AM by Lee Byard)

It’s an easy deception: flooding a site with back-links, filling every post with unrelated  extensions. Companies take advantage of their rivals’ popularity, siphoning traffic and search engine rankings. Inbound links shape each blog and dominate the front pages of Google.

This is the current state of many SEO strategies.

It’s no longer, however, the future of marketing.... because the Penguin program is fighting back.

Google Penguin is an analytics tool. It’s meant to examine each site for excessive back-linking, penalizing the top contenders with lowered rankings. 

The purpose of this is to curtail engine manipulation, forcing each page to rely on the merits of its content rather than extensions. A high profile can no longer be gained through false-positives and irrelevant linking. Optimized information, images and videos are instead needed.

And every company must take note of this. 

A social presence is no longer defined by back-links. Instead relevant data is required, as well as full integration. Google’s Penguin program continues to develop new ways to defend against black-hat tactics (it will eventually cast its algorithm net over keyword stuffing, cloaking and more). SEO will have to change to meet these new standards.
