    Can anyone come up with Google Penguin update Video that will be awesome to watch and learn.

  • Anton Koekemoer July 3, 2012, 5:05 am

    Hi ZK,

    I do agree with you. Especially on the tips mentioned in the video. A lot of SEO’s in the international community tend to focus on the new and what’s in the hype – but when reviewing a website it’s easy to see a lot of the basic SEO tactics (on and offline) not being used. This is great for getting that extra little bit of ranking and juice for your website in the SERP’s. In SEO – Every little bit of an advantage you can give to a website is totally worth it.

      Google has always taught web owners to follow the basics of seo and write for the users and not for search engines
