Massive article submission

Good results but is that friendly?

Hi,

I have recently collaborate with a SEO person and checked his work.
I saw that a part of his work was to submit articles to hundreds of article websites.
And I see positive results till now.

Is this a good procedure for long term SEO work?
I mean that the fact a same text is located on hundreds of websites with a link to my site doesn't seem very friendly.

Do you think I should continue?

"And I see positive results till now."

Define "now" Last week, yesterday, over a period of a few months? I for one will jump for joy when Google downgrades many of those article sites. Probably one of the reasons their CEO has called the web a sewer.

Long term? Not in my opinionn.

Google might discount all of the links in the copies of the articles but that's about it. That's not a penalty of any sorts it's just a filter.

Will you lose rankings because of it? Well you might if those now-filtered links were giving you a boost previously.

I don't think it will harm your site though because it would be too easy to harm competitors doing this.

I have started two months ago. I have made tests with recent websites. And I can see now the website on 1st page of Google for strong keywords. It looked too easy to be true.

Also, with same logic, what about adding comments in blogs with the right link in it? Does this practice is or might be filtered by Google?

I think that once you reach first positions in a way or in an other, even if it drops later, that can only be good for your website. Because, as long as you are in first position, then, you will have more chances of having natural back links, don't you think?

Practically all blogs are no follow. No benefit for improved SERP positions with anchor text. You may get some traffic but that's about it. However becoming a guest blogger on other sites would normally permit "follow" text links.

"...as long as you are in first position, then, you will have more chances of having natural back links, don't you think? "

Visibility never hurts along with good content worth linking to.

I disagree, what is the difference between; a link from a well written press release and a good article published on article and guide sites...

Both would be published with links back to the site in the context of good copy - all helping with the SEO performance.

Guide and article sites may get small penalties from time to time, but the general high quality of content tends to overcome the flotsam.
