Do you think it is worth using paid links to achieve top page rank? Before answering this question please read this, Google is against the paid link during indexing and at the same time it offers Google Adsense through which webmasters can build link for a fixed pay. Why does this controversy exist in Google? Is paid link really fruitful for website optimization? This article will clearly explain the link concept followed by search engines to rank sites, and at the end you will find the answers to these questions.
Most of them know that Google ranks websites under organic and inorganic search ranking. Do you know how it categorizes them? It is simple, if a website is well optimized using SEO techniques like press release, article submission, directories submission, forum, blog etc without using paid links, then Google will place the website under the organic search ranking. If a website is promoted mostly through the paid links, then the corresponding website will be listed under the inorganic search ranking.
Websites covered under the Organic and Inorganic search rankings are displayed at the left and right sides of the Search Engine Result Page (SERP), respectively. Most often, users trust a website, if it is listed in the organic listing.
With this explanation, you may conclude that the paid link is fruitless. But this is not true; Google will accept the links purchased for advertising purpose and it is purely against the links that are purchased for the purpose of getting high PR and that are part of the planned link exchange program.
Obviously, you can use Google Adsense for advertising purposes, and gain top ranking. Not only Google, you can also buy text advertisements from someone else to achieve better results in search engines.
Apart from the paid links, you can also build links by exchanging links with sites offering useful information for your site visitors. If your site has enough useful information, then other similar sites will be ready to place your site link without link exchange.
To put it in the nut shell, getting the paid links for advertising purpose will drive targeted traffic and help you achieve high PR.

Google will index a site only when Googlebot accesses the site during any search query. If your site is not yet indexed, then remove the robots.txt from your web server root directory. Even after that if your site is not indexed, check for the following code ‘’ in the home page. This code will not allow Googlebot to index your home page and crawl through the site. If the code exists, remove it from the page.
You can also submit your site to Google. Another effective way to get Google notice your site is link building.
Even after following all these strategies, if your site is not indexed or page rank is reduced, check for the following:
• Over-optimization of your site i.e. more aggressive keyword optimization in meta, title and/or tags or changed link text or structure for optimization.
• Check for hidden text and stuffed keywords in the site pages.
• If you have redirected your site from an old domain to a new one, check whether it is redirected properly.

• Placing unrelated domain links in the footer section of the site pages will be considered as spam. Remove those links.

HTTP cookies are used by web servers to track clients and retrieve data related to users during navigation. Http cookies were introduced to implement shopping cart for storing items they want to purchase as they navigate a shopping site.
Other than the usage of cookies in e-commerce as a shopping cart, it is used to store information like their name, phone number etc when users fill out a form and offer them the stored details the next time they come to the page.
There were rumors among the internet users that, through cookies, webmasters can collect security information and damage hard drive. This is not true. Generally, cookies are small pieces of text, stored by user’s web browsers that contain user’s setting, shopping content or other data used by systems. The collected data is used to identify visitors and gather information you entered into sites.
Cookies are sent between server and client for normal operation. There is a possibility of stealing cookies particularly on unencrypted public Wi-Fi networks, through packet sniffing, by an unauthorized party. You can secure the communication network by employing transport layer security to encrypt the connection.
Attackers make use of cross-site scripting (XSS) to receive cookies of other users to their servers. One can get rid of the XSS issue by making cookies inaccessible to the client side script using the HttpOnly flag which was introduced by Microsoft and implemented in PHP since version 5.2.0.
If you are still worried about security of cookies, get latest browser versions and turn cookies off. Netscape communicator offers three options to accept all cookies, accept only cookies from the same server or deny all cookies. It also offers additional option to alert you when you are prompted for a cookie so that you can accept or decline it.
When there is a sudden drop in your site rank even if you have done enough optimization through white hat, it means that Google has penalized you for over optimization. Once your site ranking goes down, you will start analyzing the reason and may conclude that it may be due to spamming. But spamming is different from over optimization. Spamming will get your site banned, whereas over-optimization will lower search engine rankings.
If you lose your site rankings immediately after making any changes, it would be a good idea to undo them. Here we have listed some of the techniques that are practiced in real-time to boost your site ranking without knowing that it was over-optimization.
• Including keywords in page links. For example, changing the site navigation so that all the home page links says “KW1 KW2 home” instead of “home”.
• Repetition of anchor text.
• Adding backlinks with site name.
• Repeating same set of keywords in Title, Meta tags, Hx
• Using the same keywords used in anchor text, again in Title, Meta tags, Hx
Don’t indulge in the above mentioned optimization techniques to avoid Over-optimized penalty. Also avoid keyword stuffing in image link Alt tags. Having good incoming links is the best way to get a good page rank.
Sitelinks are extra links that are shown below Google search results and which lead to specific pages deeper within a site. Until now, Google offered sitelinks only on the first search results. They extended this feature to all search results. Up to four sitelinks will be shown in a single row above the page URL.
Google implements a completely automated process to select pages to appear as sitelinks. The process considers several factors, and analyzes the structure and content of sites to select pages that offer relevant information for the user’s query. Since sitelinks are assigned based on several factors, not all websites in search results have them.
Sitelinks give users an overview of a website’s content and help them jump directly to desired page of the website. This is often useful for large, complex websites.
Here are simple tips that will help you to have sitelinks for your site.
• Provide a sitemap with clear navigation hierarchy for your site.
• Provide relevant titles and Meta descriptions to each site page.
• Offer useful outbound links.
• Build SEO friendly links i.e. inbound links for every page and links back to previous page.
Google analyzes the link structure of your site and offers sitelinks only when they think that links will be useful for users’ queries. Webmasters can see sitelinks that are created for their site, and control the display of sitelinks in search results.
In order to block a sitelink, open the Webmaster tools dashboard and click the site in which you want to block sitelink. Under the Links, select the Sitelinks. If the selected site has sitelinks information, the sitelinks will be displayed. To remove a sitelink, click the Block next to the sitelink and provide the reason for removing it.
You can also unblock the blocked content. If you block or unblock a sitelink, it will take some time to come into effect. The blocked sitelink won’t appear in the Google search results for 90 days. You can extend this period every time you visit the sitelinks page on the Webmaster Tools.
