get my own site high on google search results and to enhance my
professional credentials I distributed free a number of site templates
as CMS Themes with a link to my site in the footer.
I got thousands of backlinks from sites all over the world but it seems
the backlink plan has backfired and although I didn't see it as cheating
to put my name to my designs google just sees an unlikely quantity of
footer links and I am penalised accordingly so that my site is way, way
down the list of results for my chosen search terms. That at least is
what I think has happened. I don't know how you would even find out for
sure, but I don't see any other major problem with my SEO which would
explain the embarassing results.
I don't see how I can undo what is done so I think the best solution is
to set up a new domain, say .com instead of .biz and start the SEO
again. So here is my question:
How do I plan the new site to make sure I disassociate myself from the
old backlinks but maintain some continuity of service? Can I use
duplicate content if I remove the old site from the server? Will a 301
redirect from the old domain to the new make the whole change pointless?
Will my plan work?
The site in question is at cyberpress.biz
Re: SEO Problem
From what you tell I don't see you have been penalized
by search engines. Could be something you did not tell.
If ceasing using the old domain and make a 301 redirection
to a new domain, are a legal method. But why should you do
this, if not for another reason.
Anyway, now you have presented your website here, it tacitly
askes for comments.:
It displays fine on my phone. But why reducing the text-size at
the bottom of some sections. The text size of the main sections
already lay in the lower region, but is acceptable. Everybody's
still talking of responsive design. Though, since website building
started, more than 30 years ago, page-elements have been auto
responsive. As the width of the page is not sufficient, elements
in line layout auto change to block layout. It's not a new html
