Backlinks are indeed key to good search engine rankings, even nofollow links can considerably boost your rankings on search engine result pages. Is most your traffic for SEO related search terms?

  4. I read your post on “How to create the perfect SEO content”. I’d like to commend you on a GREAT post. It was very informative and educational. I was particularly interested in knowing more about the constant changes in algorithms that Google does. From my understanding, they do this constant update because they are focused on removing spam and targeting unethical SEO practices. I look at these changes as being good for SEO people as well as clients. As long as you follow the right SEO strategies, you shouldn’t have to worry. These updates will only make you a more skilled SEO professional. By adjusting your content to these changes, you’ll beat out your competition who don’t make the necessary adjustments as well as boost your rankings.
