Hello Friends 2012 is passed. Google Released an update of PR for different websites a few months before the arrival of 2013. Recently, Google sent out a Panda Update. Most SEO experts believe that the recent Panda update from Google has devalued the backlinks which were counting the most valuable factors for ranking a website before. If it is true, then what is your next strategy to get a better rank in the first PR update of 2013? Yes content building is always important, but else should be done in according to Google’s new algorithm if it has really devalued the inbound links? It is a big question, which is being discussed in several forums among the webmasters community.
Till now, backlinks count most valuable for your website’s good rank if they are from relevant and high PR webpages. The first strategy of every webmaster is to build the backlinks. Most webmasters have been seen that they prefer backlinks over the content of their websites. They don’t consider their website’s content quality but tend to build links instead. Mostly, they succeed to get a good PR. The mission of such webmasters is not to run a blog or website for long time but they sell the domains and websites after building their PR. To fight against such type of activities from webmasters, Google may bring any big change in its algorithm. If it happens, then the entire SEO will change once again and there is a possibility of any big surprise from Google in 2013.
