Search Engine Optimizers

SEO is an abbreviation for "search engine optimizer." Many SEOs provide useful services for website owners, from writing copy to giving advice on site architecture and helping to find relevant directories to which a site can be submitted. However, a few unethical SEOs have given the industry a black eye through their overly aggressive marketing efforts and their attempts to unfairly manipulate search engine results.

While Google doesn't have relationships with any SEOs and doesn't offer recommendations, we do have a few tips that may help you distinguish between an SEO that will improve your site and one that will only improve your chances of being dropped from search engine results altogether.

  • Be wary of SEO firms that send you email out of the blue.
    Amazingly, we get these spam emails too:
    "Dear google.com,
    I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."
    Reserve the same skepticism for unsolicited email about search engines as you do for "burn fat at night" diet pills or requests to help transfer funds from deposed dictators.

  • No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google.
    Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee Rankings, allege a "special relationship" with Google, or advertise a "priority submit" to Google. There is no priority submit for Google. In fact, the only way to submit a site to Google directly is through our add url in "http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue="/addurl" page or through the https://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemaps/login?source=gsm&subID=us-et-seo" Sitemaps (Beta) program, and you can do this yourself at no cost whatsoever.

  • Be careful if a company is secretive or won't clearly explain what they intend to do.
    Ask for explanations if something is unclear. If an SEO creates deceptive or misleading content on your behalf, such as doorway pages or "throwaway" domains, your site could be removed entirely from Google's index. Ultimately, you are responsible for the actions of any companies you hire, so it's best to be sure you know exactly how they intend to "help" you.

  • You should never have to link to an SEO.
    Avoid SEOs that talk about the power of "free-for-all" links, link popularity schemes, or submitting your site to thousands of search engines. These are typically useless exercises that don't affect your ranking in the results of the major search engines -- at least, not in a way you would likely consider to be positive.

  • Some SEOs may try to sell you the ability to type keywords directly into the browser address bar.
    Most such proposals require users to install extra software, and very few users do so. Evaluate such proposals with extreme care and be skeptical about the self-reported number of users who have downloaded the required applications.

  • Choose wisely.
    While you consider whether to go with an SEO, you may want to do some research on the industry. Google is one way to do that of course. You might also seek out a few of the cautionary tales that have appeared in the press, including this article on one particularly aggressive SEO: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2002002970_nwbizbriefs12.html. While Google doesn't comment on specific companies, we've encountered firms calling themselves SEOs who follow practices that are clearly beyond the pale of accepted business behavior. Be careful.

  • Be sure to understand where the money goes.
    While Google never sells better ranking in our search results, several other search engines combine pay-per-click or pay-for-inclusion results with their regular web search results. Some SEOs will promise to rank you highly in search engines, but place you in the advertising section rather than in the search results. A few SEOs will even change their bid prices in real time to create the illusion that they "control" other search engines and can place themselves in the slot of their choice. This scam doesn't work with Google because our advertising is clearly labeled and separated from our search results, but be sure to ask any SEO you're considering which fees go toward permanent inclusion and which apply toward temporary advertising.

  • Talk to many SEOs, and ask other SEOs if they'd recommend the firm you're considering.
    References are a good start, but they don't tell the whole story. You should ask how long a company has been in business and how many full time individuals it employs. If you feel pressured or uneasy, go with your gut feeling and play it safe: hold off until you find a firm that you can trust. Ask your SEO firm if it reports every spam abuse that it finds to Google using our spam complaint form at http://www.google.com/contact/spamreport.html. Ethical SEO firms report deceptive sites that violate Google's spam guidelines.

  • Make sure you're protected legally.
    For your own safety, you should insist on a full and unconditional money-back guarantee. Don't be afraid to request a refund if you're unsatisfied for any reason, or if your SEO's actions cause your domain to be removed from a search engine's index. Make sure you have a contract in writing that includes pricing. The contract should also require the SEO to stay within the guidelines recommended by each search engine for site inclusion.


What are the most common abuses a website owner is likely to encounter?
One common scam is the creation of "shadow" domains that funnel users to a site by using deceptive redirects. These shadow domains often will be owned by the SEO who claims to be working on a client's behalf. However, if the relationship sours, the SEO may point the domain to a different site, or even to a competitor's domain. If that happens, the client has paid to develop a competing site owned entirely by the SEO.

Another illicit practice is to place "doorway" pages loaded with keywords on the client's site somewhere. The SEO promises this will make the page more relevant for more queries. This is inherently false since individual pages are rarely relevant for a wide range of keywords. More insidious, however, is that these doorway pages often contain hidden links to the SEO's other clients as well. Such doorway pages drain away the link popularity of a site and route it to the SEO and its other clients, which may include sites with unsavory or illegal content.

What are some other things to look out for?
There are a few warning signs that you may be dealing with a rogue SEO. It's far from a comprehensive list, so if you have any doubts, you should trust your instincts. By all means, feel free to walk away if the SEO:
  • Owns shadow domains
  • Puts links to their other clients on doorway pages
  • Offers to sell keywords in the address bar
  • Doesn't distinguish between actual search results and ads that appear in search results
  • Guarantees ranking, but only on obscure, long keyword phrases you would get anyway
  • Operates with multiple aliases or falsified WHOIS info
  • Gets traffic from "fake" search engines, spyware, or scumware
  • Has had domains removed from Google's index or is not itself listed in Google

Romance...


We mistake sex for romance. Guys are taught that pushing a girl up against a wall is romance. Sex is easy; you can do it with anyone, yourself, with batteries. Romance is when someone you like walks into a room and they take your breath away. Romance is when two people are dancing and they fit together perfectly. Romance is when two people are walking next to each other and all of a sudden they find themselves holding hands, and they don’t know how that happened.

a Letter for mom

A mother passing by her daughter’s bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then she saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It was addressed, “Mom.” With the worst premonition, she opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands:

Season 1: F1 2011 Canadian GP


Montreal, Canada. Season 1, Race 7.

After bad result on Monaco last race, I felt a little nervous for this race. On practice season, we have a new compound to be test, to increase car's downforce to get more speed on straight line, team giving a time to beat, so the enginer preparing two different setup, but i dunno what's wrong with the car, it felt like don't want to speeding and at the corner rear tyre feels like grinding. My time haven't much change with the second setup too. And Adrian have a good time, he's on P12 mean while i'm on P16 on the end of the practice season.

practice and qualifying result
On qualy, not much change even i use thesuper soft tyre set, but at least we can break into season two qualifying, but that all we can i just moving 1 grid from my practice season, so i start from P15 tommorow, mean while Adrian got P13.

race screenshot
On race day, team decide to not use the new compound for a while, just like Adrian car, because the weather forecast says that the race will interupted by rain. On the start i use a half of my KERS power to catching up the front car, so at first turn and second one's i got P8 between Hamilton and Button, and then pushing my car to the limit to get Alguesuari and Schumacher, and i dunno with both McLaren car's they look strugling. At the middle race the rain came up, i dunno what laps it is but i remembered it after my second pit, rainy race with soft tyre and, well the rain isn't hard but the track is getting wet so easily so, for several times i got my rear tyre is slip but i still can control my steer, and then team call me for tyre change they has preparing the intermediate tyre, a rainy race and the other car's is on long gap so, i just geting to drive save and maintain the gap, and i ended the race at P6 mean while Adrian got P8 and Webber as the winner in front of his team mate Vettel.

Not a bad result and thankfully i'm back on my pace. A great day i think.
