I am often met with what I call “desperate clients”. A desperate client is someone who wants results yesterday – but it just doesn’t happen like that – so the sooner you start the better!
These desperate clients will often try and push their rankings by asking me what I need to do to get to number one in Google quickly, and surely 10 articles are better than one aren’t they? And if I am building links then why can’t I just go and create 100,000 links to help them out rather than go so slowly with a paltry 100 article submissions each month?
Well I always try to look after my clients and do the safe thing, but sometimes I will try a few tricks to try and help out, but that’s going to stop – but for all the right reasons.

Google actually confirm in the interview that they are working on levelling the playing field – and anybody who is “over optimizing” will perhaps find their site drop in the rankings. Now the problem is that we don’t know what over optimizing is yet, but to play safe I am certainly going to try and add QUALITY content to my clients sites, do more social media and also encourage my clients to offer a quality and engaging websites.
