If you ran a forum, a blog network, affiliate sites, or were an SEO and given the kick to the curb by Google you will be interested in this solution. The Fightback Networks – Created by Michael Carlin If you are looking for a blog network that you can use to build high quality links on then The Fightback Networks could be the solution you are looking for. By using their system you can gain access to other quality blogs that are within your niches and also to other networks that range in pagerank from 1 – 5 that are general blogs. (Importance of Niche Relevance) What is really does is put the power of building great back-links back into your hands! With access to these other networks by simply joining and adding a few of your own blogs into the system you have the ability to leverage your own blog networks.

Hostnine Reseller Hosting Review – Location and IP Diversity

Hostnine Reseller Hosting Review – Location and IP Diversity

I have been using Hostnine Hosting for somewhere around 5 years now to host sites such as WordPress, Jcow, Drupal, and others. The sites I am hosting with them are not my money sites as I haven’t found a better host for this then Hostgator’s shared and reseller hosting. (You can read why I use Hostgator for my money sites here) Anyways, if you want to host sites such as blog network sites and take your SEO to the next level then Hostnine is a perfect choice for this. (And if you are not aware of how to create a blog network you can learn more about it here.) So why do I like Hostnine reseller hosting for hosting these types of sites then? The absolute main reason I love Hostnine is because when you purchase their reseller hosting you get to choose where you want each of your site’s hosted location. What they have is a network of locations, 3 are in the USA (East, West, Central), another is in the UK (Near London), another is in Singapore (Asia Location) and the last location is in the Netherlands (Europe Location). Those locations alone give you 6 choices around the world to host your network of sites from. The second added benefit of Hostnine’s various locations is when you install a new domain onto a new location you will receive a new IP. For example: If you have 12 sites, all located throughout those 6 locations and you need to install the 13th site. What happens when you install this new site lets say on their western location, where you have 2 sites already? What usually happens is it is not going to share an IP with the other 2 sites on that location so you not only have location diversity but you also receive IP diversity. Why is that so good? Well c-class IP diversity is essential for good SEO link building and Hostnine delivers that. My third reason for liking these guys so much is their resellers dashboard. Here you can do anything you like to your sites, whether you want to access cpanel, its just a click. If you want to move a site from one location to another all you have to do is go to the migration manager and a couple of clicks later the site is in the queue for moving. Others things available right inside the panel is support, network status and resource usage if you need to track that. Another benefit of using Hostnine’s reseller hosting plan is just by signing up with their level one you are allowed 100 domains...

Be Wise About Your 301 Redirects and 404 Error Pages

Be Wise About Your 301 Redirects and 404 Error Pages

I have been reading about 301 redirects quite a bit lately as well as 404 errors.  I was doing this because I was having a bunch of 404’s showing up in my webmaster tools account and I wanted to basically eliminate them once and for all. I used to setup a permanent redirect for all 404 errors to the home pages of my sites, this even included my blog network sites.  From my readings I learned this is not good anymore, or maybe it never was. The Way I Implement My 301 Redirects For My Sites Has Changed What I used to believe was if I redirected my 404’s that this would pass the page rank to my homepage, yes it was not the full page rank as it was diluted by Google but it sure lessoned my work load. Also from watching the page rank of my domains on my networks it seemed to work.  This is not so possible to watch for anymore though as Google is infrequently updating the page rank toolbar stats. So now what if I can not redirect with a simple script on my 404 pages. Well two things I changed.  The changes I am making now are dependant on whether my site is a money site or a blog network site. Lets Get Started With My Money Sites First off, for my money sites most are developed on the WordPress framework utilizing different themes but in general they are really all the same. For each money site that is built on WordPress I implemented a redirect that goes to a search page.  Now this is not just the search page but it is a search page that best matches the terms the user was looking for and shows them all the results. This simple change has almost completely eliminated all my 404 errors for zwinks.org in my webmaster tools.  You can see it in action by clicking this link – http://zwinks.org/senuke.  I have no urls with senuke like this so you are going to be taken to a search page for senuke that shows every result that best matches that query. Pretty cool I would say. I have one more step to implement into zwinks.org and my other money sites and that is to add the most read posts as a list to the results page also.  This will show up if the query for the search has no results. This I think will have benefits for bounce rates as well.  To date the bounce rate on zwinks.org is hovering around 23% most months but if I could lower that by another 5%...
