You should go to the newbies forum here, read the last 30 posts and then you'll be able to ask more specific questions: [webmasterworld.com ]
That's like to enter the medical school and ask "What is illness and how can I cure it?".

Lexur, thanks for the 'pointer' ("You should go to the newbies forum here") ... HOWEVER, just where IS the "newbie" forum? I could not find the word "newbie" in the list of topics to the left of the main forum list.
Secondly, Lexur, as a point of reference, when you say "read the last 30 posts" ... do you mean the most recent or the "last" (oldest) posts?
Bottom line: just finding the "newbies" forum would, for me, be of great help. At least I'd be in the 'medical school library' :-)
Sincerely (and do feel free to email me directly, Lexur),
Glen (the Computer Guy)

This is a cutnpaste spammer, perhaps just adding his URL to his profile, perhaps planning a signature or later re-edit.
See this Google search: [goo.gl ]

Quadrille ... I'm assuming you're referring to "aurelius123" - the original poster? Or perhaps "Lexur"? ...
Is there any truth to a 'newbies' section? (Cuz I'd prefer not to jump into the middle of the room/forum and try to figure things out piece-by-fragmented-piece - but I WILL! ...)
Thanks for your input (re: "This is a cutnpaste spammer...") and your response to my query here.
Best to you!

Clue: the one with one post to his name ;)
Plus the link I offered made it clear.
Best to you too, sir!

I suppose it would be idle to ask why the newbies' forum isn't positioned where newbies would see it first of all? (File alongside: Why is the Supporters forum even visible to non-supporters? Isn't that like a php/bb forum having the Moderators Only forum in plain view? I guess you could stand just inside the door and make faces at passers-by...)
:: scroll, scroll ::
About 1/3 of the way down the list you get to WebmasterWorld. The subforum, not the overall site. Around the middle of this list is a category called New to Web Development. And if there's a unifying theme to the questions posted here-- or the newness of the askers-- I'm ### if I can find it :)
Or, for variety's sake, you could scroll all the way down to Local, which does not mean what I originally thought it did (special issues around sites targeting a narrow geographic range) but, I guess, Internal. Some people like to introduce themselves in the Community Center. ("My name is John S. I am a webmaster.")

He's in for an unpleasant surprise, then, because the time for editing posts runs out three minutes before you notice the crucially omitted "not". Or the unwanted smiley making mincemeat of your carefully crafted sample code.

Glen, I put a link to the "New to the web development" forum in my post; just click in [Webmasterworld].

Thanks Lexur for posting about the newbies forum. Like aurelius123 I am also a newbie when it comes to SEO and I would like to learn how to increase the PR of my website.

5. increasingly useless
6. shortcut to a Google ban.
What have you been reading?

its a bit unfair to say "useless " NO link is useless its just "how" good that link is and on a sliding scale those links are at the lower end of the quality bar - for some webmasters getting these types of links are the only type they can get

Sure, maybe I should have said "less than or equal to zero"
Link ARE useless if they come from pages that have no value, and you should know better than to suggest otherwise.
1. Article submissions - in 99% of cases - =0, and less than that if the article farmer has played naughty games. Any benefit from article farming goes to the farmer. Ask any turkey.
2. 99.999% of blog posts are useless, because 99.99% of all blogs are useless. People seem to imagine that every blog is like zdnet. Wrong. The average blog is terminally dire, and is held in contempt by readers, SEs, and often the writer. Go look at a few.
3. Forum signatures are a pathetic form of spam; most forums that allow them have been filled with garbage, recognised - years ago - by Google et al as a form of link spam. Quality forums - and those who want to retain any Google profile - simply don't allow them. It's a shame, but they've been terminally abused. Go look at a few forums that allow them.
4. Similar logic covers wikis too.
5. Social bookmarking is much abused, and (probably) has minimal value for the vast majority of users. I say probably, because the field is now so vast and varied, that I no longer believe the statements made about social spamlinking, and my money is on the SEs being wise to it. But no, I can't prove it.
6. Link wheels are probably the most stupid scam invented since the Internet. SEs live to explore links, to understand them, and to set a value on them. Even Bing could spot one at 4,000 miles, Google can probably see them from outer space, and they are exactly what you'd expect - simple bad neighbourhoods.
|for some webmasters getting these types of links are the only type they can get |
My solution would be to give up and get a job, if there sites are so awful they can't get links. Your solution is to defend spamlinking - because that's what all these methods are. No more. No less. Spamlinking.
|HOW DO I STOP RECEIVING FOLLOW-UP POSTS TO THIS TOPIC? |
Good question; nothing in this thread is new or controversial; my only defense for continuing to contribute is that I have a genetic failing - I cannot let twaddle go unresponded to. Yes, I know. It's sad. Worse; it's futile. The same six spamlinking suggestions appear so regularly it's boring.

Seo is the technique of improving the visibility of your website in search engine and getting traffic to your site and getting backlinks from other sites.If you want to improve your site pagerank then start blog posting and should unique content for blog posts and go for seo techniques like forum posting, blog commenting, social bookmarking, directory submission, yahoo answers as well as promte your sites through social networking sites like facebook and twitter.

SEO is similar like internet marketing. Well, the important is to have a decent proportion of good backlinks.
Because a backlink on a strong PR page, even unrelated will bring bots and visitors to your site for sure. If for example you could have a link on phpBB home page (PR 9), there is now way it could hurt your Ranking, what we would not want would be backlinks only coming from unrelated websites or worst, only coming from a single domain being unrelated. That's why backlinking is a long and never ending run, we should consider every occasion we have to make more and set priority among them to always work on the best one we can actually obtain.
