Knocked Out by Google? Here Is How to Recover

Have the recent updates by Google scrapped your website’s ranking on the search results? There is no need to panic, because this situation is entirely reversible if you can identify the spots in your website’s design and your SEO strategy where Google has cried “Blasphemy!” You can get back all your glory in the search results by following a step-by-step recovery manoeuvre.

Take the following ten steps to recover your website’s reputation on Google’s search results:-

  1. Stop all the link building activities immediately. Change your attitude towards the link building strategy. Do not build links just for the sake of it. Instead, focus on improving the content of the website, and encourage natural link building.

  2. Offer useful information that adds value to the reader. As the readers share and discuss about your content, they eventually expose your website to a wider audience and encourage a natural link building process.
    The Google’s Plus initiative is not an accident. Google’s search algorithm is focusing more on Social media presence these days. Add more informative videos to your social media page to make it more fun to watch. This is a proven technique to attract more traffic to your page. As more and more people share your posts and view your videos, Google will regard your website authentic and worthy to be ranked again in its search results.

  3. Choose quality websites to build links from. Make your link building activity more diversified, by using naked URLs and Brand Anchors judiciously, so that it seems more natural to Google. You can build links from high quality websites and article directories like Squidoo, HubPages, EzineArticles and many more.
  4. Revise your website’s structure. Check if the ads placed on your website is obstructing the user experience. Presentation of information plays a great role in the user experience of an online visitor. Redesign your website to present high quality content in a readable and consistent manner. A good user experience will guarantee you the reader’s trust, which will in turn cut down your website’s bounce rates and finally get it back into the good books of Google.
  5. A number of e-commerce websites have fallen prey to the waves of Panda attacks on websites with low or poor quality content. You can resuscitate your fallen e-commerce website, by thickening up its product pages with product descriptions and reviews. Also, reduce the number of pages by categorizing similar products on a single page. Panda simply hates websites with too many pages and poor content.
  6. Check your website for duplicate content and poorly formatted page descriptions. Revise your titles and Meta descriptions, and upload high-quality content with attractive images and videos. Make your website more engaging, so that you may earn the trust of the online visitors.
    Check for spam links to your site from other websites. If you find any, ask the site owners to remove them. Remove any spam comments that you might have made to boost your website’s traffic.

  7. If Panda finds any external links to your website from websites it has ravaged, it will simply brand your website as one among “them”. You can use Google Webmaster Tools to identify and remove the low quality external links from the Panda’s victims that point to your website.
  8. If you own multiple websites, you should check each of them for any kind of links from the website that just got stripped off its search engine ranking. If you find any such links pointing to or from the affected website, remove them immediately. In this way, you can prevent the Google Panda from suspecting your other better-off websites.

Scrap Copper Categories

The world has been suffering from pollution for a while now and people are getting affected as well while this is going on. That is why it is uplifting to see groups of people standing up to do something, even in the simplest of ways. There are people who are building up large scale and small scale campaigns against the use of fossil fuel, throwing garbage everywhere, and other things that destroys the environment. Other people promote the use of alternative energy sources like solar power, wind power and the likes. There are also groups who are campaigning to urge people to recycle.

Of all the methods, the simplest but also one of the most effective is recycling. It is the process of re – using materials that are already considered trash. These are materials that don’t disintegrate or it doesn’t decompose. Materials like plastic, metal, copper and others. Because it doesn’t decompose, expect it to linger for a long time, clogging up sewers, contaminating stuff and eventually, it would fill up the planet. But if you re use this, there would be no need or the need for producing this materials would lessen. Like for example, everyday, manufacturers create millions of aluminum cans for soda. But if people would collect these cans and recycle it, the manufacturers would be able to re – use it to make new aluminum cans. See the benefits?
This is also applicable for copper. Copper is a strongly reusable material. It doesn’t get destroyed easily. You can demolish a house, leave it for a hundred years, weathered and stuff, but you would still get copper out of it. Copper is also a material that is not easy to acquire. The miners can get it but not in great amounts that are why recycling it is a must, a requirement for business to continue. Wait, did I just said “business?” yes, I just did.

You could actually make money out of copper. Junk shops and even manufacturers buy these materials depending on their quality. So for you to know how much you would sell these materials, you should know the scrap copper categories. You can check out your nearest junk shop and ask about it or you could even browse around on the internet to know the latest on the copper market. It’s quite easy. All you have to do is Google it or if you know some websites that is trustworthy, check it out.
Copper is categorized into quality and stuff. The highest quality copper and when recycle, you get much money from it, is the No.1 Heavy Scrap Copper, it is then followed by No. 2 Scrap Copper. On the lowest part of the category list is the scrap copper from motors, copper content scrap and other types of scrap copper. It’s categorized so that the quality is organized and it is much easier to track the price. Of course, the higher the quality, the easier it is to re use it and the more money you would get out of it.

How to Start a Scrap Metal Business

The scrap metal industry is what many people refer to as a recession proof business. Scrap yards thrive through the good and bad, because they always make a certain amount on the metals no matter what the price is. This is called the mark-up. Your mark-up must be high enough to make a profitable living, but small enough so that you can stay competitive with the competition. Now day’s people know that their metal is worth something. Some may not know exactly what, but if you give an honest price to each customer you will continue to do business with them.

Step 1: Learn to identify all different types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. You have to know exactly what it is that you’re buying from your customers because different metals have different values. Note: There is a big difference in price in “clean” vs. “dirty” non-ferrous metals. The reason non-ferrous metals fall into the “dirty” category is because they have other metals mixed in. For example, you might have a piece of copper pipe with a steel fitting or steel bolts attached to it. You must get the steel removed from the tubing before that piece of copper can be sold as “clean.” This is very important for you to remember so that you don’t pay too much for your metals. Buy a small magnet to determine the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal. Ferrous metals such as Iron will stick to a magnet.
Step 2: Locate and map out metal refineries and large industrial scrap yards in your area. Find out what each place will pay for your different metals. Calculate how much it will cost you in travel time/fuel to get to each of these places and find out which ones will be most profitable to you. Time is money, just like fuel.

Step 3: Once you’ve gotten a price for what the metals will bring you, determine how much you are willing to pay so that you can be profitable. The more you’re able to pay, the more business you will do. Keep in mind your travel time/cost. The more time you can spend buying, the better.

Step 4: Now that you’ve decided who to sell to and how much to pay, you’ve gotta go out and hustle the metals. There are various ways to acquire the metals. It really just depends on how much capital you are working with. Obviously larger amounts of money to gamble with make it easier to get your name out, but I’ll start with the cost affective methods.

First post an ad on Craigslist in your area telling everyone that you buy scrap metal. Craigslist is great because you can post ads like this at no cost.

Second get some business cards made. You can get these really cheap with companies such as overnightprints.com. Be sure to put your business name, phone number and website if you have one.

Third if you don’t have a website I highly recommend one. You can do a ton of online advertising for very little cost with a website. Everyone gets on Google these days to find what they’re looking for. You can use Google cost per click services to make you pop up or you can use SEO services. I recommend SEO, because you’ll pop up as a natural listing instead of an advertisement.
I recommend for the more capable investor a roll-off truck with at least 5-10 roll-off dumpsters. You will need these for separating your different types of metals and to set down at companies that you may acquire in your new venture. The more metal you can move, the more money you can make.

This is the basics of starting a scrap metal service. The more time you spend in the industry the more you will learn and the more money you will make.
