Alwan Arikna from Semarang, Indonesia, is a SEO, Internet Marketing and Website Designing expert who writes on his blog that run-of-site links are responsible for the de-indexation of more websites than the link farms.
Alwan writes that fortunately enough, even the rookie buyers nowadays are smart enough to understand that link farms are something bad and to be avoided.
Alwan claims that you can’t trust websites like Hitwise.com, Alexa.com , Comscore.com or Compete.com anymore to know the traffic of a website belonging to someone else.
Alwan claims to know several misguided people who deliberately write bait press releases just because they were told a couple of advantages of the same, like, bait press releases can convert rookie prospects and because the people coming to your site after reading a bait press release are mostly determined to never come back, it creates unique traffic to your website which is very helpful for the SEO of a website.
Alwan disagrees with those who claim that once a month is the perfect time period for writing a press release, he believes that once a week is rather the perfect.
Alwan believes ‘Rich Site Summary’ is the true definition of RSS just like he believes Sbobet is the true secret behind several million dollar fortunes in Indonesia.
Alwan writes that when it comes to writing a press release, it is a tough affair to not sound like an ad and use the keywords in the title at the same time but you can really do it if you are well-versed in the art of writing and/or have a creative mind.
Alwan estimates that the number of third-party press release websites have gone down by 70% in the past 8 years, the reason being obvious declining popularity of the press release websites.
