Ok when will I learn to save my most amazing, brilliant brain flashes for my own blog! 😆
hmmm we should play with Google now. Pick the whitehouse or something big and knock em out of the serps. We could call it Google Bowling. lol
But ego aside GoogleBowling is serious business and with all the monkeying around Google has done to their algo, GoogleBowling is the direction we seem to be heading in.
Threadwatch: GoogleBowling – The Nasty Business of Link Sabotage
Chris Garret: You have heard of GoogleBombs? Now here is GoogleBowling
So what is Google Bowling? Remember the good old days of SEO? You optimize your pages, work on inbound linking, and if the Google forces were with you – you could rise through the ranks. Those days seem to be over. What the dark forces are pointing to though, is an opportunity to knock out your competitors listed above you in the SERPs, rising your site by default.
That’s GoogleBowling. Optimizing pages to knock out your competitor. As Chris states on his blog:
This is so evil black hat black hat doesn’t describe it! Perhaps Octarine
Seems nasty times are looming. And yes Chris, I think Octarine fits the bill.
ETA: And just to be clear, I don’t condone this method of SEO. But if Google has indeed left this door open, people need to be aware and watch for it and buckle up for the nasty ride ahead.
