Why Search engine genie does not do affiliate marketing or email marketing.
In the past 10 plus year in search engine and online industry we never do affiliate marketing or email marketing. Many of our existing , past or potential clients have asked us why we don’t do it. It all comes down to ethics. I am not a big fan of aggressive marketing strategies like email or affiliate marketing. When I buy a product online either I go directly to big sites like ebay or amazon or search in Google to find my product. I hate to click on some affiliate banner to buy a product. Affiliates are like brokers if I want to buy a house I like to directly deal with the seller than going through a broker. I know there are potential benefits going through a broker but dealing with the seller will give me the best deal. Same with affiliate marketing for no reason I have to pay a intermediate site. Rather ill go directly to the ecommerce sites and buy my product.
Email marketing is something I will always stay away. Personally a victim of 1000s of spam / scam / junk commercial emails I know how much pain the whole internet goes through dealing with all the huge email spammers. I don’t want to be even 1% part of this huge spam / scam network. I feel all commercial emails without the recipients permission is spam, even if the person has submitted his email for some subscription. Email spam creates a huge burden on the internet and billions of dollars are lost dealing with email spam. I like to fight email spam rather than being part of it. I know SEO / digital marketing companies do email marketing but Search Engine Genie under my guidance will never get involved in email marketing. I know i lose 1000s of dollars denying many email marketing projects but I don’t care this internet gave me life and I will never play spoil sport on this great place.
Affiliate marketers are one of the biggest SEO spammers they do all sort of unethical strategies to push their sites on top. This makes the search engines work very hard on their algorithm and it makes legitimate websites more difficult to rank on top. We at Search Engine Genie stopped doing aggressive SEO long back. We do only organic SEO these days for our clients, we do all the best on page work to make the search engines understand the website better, give a pleasant experience for the crawlers to crawl and index our website and let the back links flow naturally to our website / client website.
For our own websites we stopped artificial link building. These days we don’t get even a single unnatural link. All links to our sites are editorially given by regular users who like our websites. We hope all other SEO companies follow suit and stop doing affiliate marketing, email marketing as a service to their clients. It is time to treat internet as a friend rather than a money making machine.
Disavow links was a hot topic when penguin update was launched. Everyone started scrambling to disavow their suspicious / artificial / spammy links. This was the trend for the past 1 year. But things changed significantly in the recent months especially after penguin update became real time. Google says they are now ignoring backlinks and no more penalizing a site based on backlinks. This is true and we have seen this in our client sites. So the question now is to disavow links or not to disavow links. We say don’t disavow if you did not do anything artificial to build links. Disavow linking disrupts the natural web. Same way we recommend not to have sitemap we also say not to disavow links. Let Google decide which links are suitable for a website.
Disavow Vs Don’t disavow
- No more major updates from Google. There will be no more big updates from Google like it used to be. Penguin has already become obsolete or real time. Panda is continuous. So 2017 will be the end of the famous Google dances which started with the 2003 Florida update.
- Mobile SEO will overtake desktop. With the expected release of Mobile only index and desktop search index secondary, mobile SEO will be on top of Desktop. This is a revolutionary change since Mobile phones have always been considered as an handy tool not as a professional tool.
- AMP ( Accelerated mobile pages ) will be dominant. Mobile page rendering will be faster than ever with people mobile from regular hosted pages to AMP and CDNs.
- Voice search will become a necessity than an additional feature. Being an active user of iPhones i never used Voice feature to search. But with the constant innovation and excellent updates to voice recognition 2017 will see people moving into voice based searches.
- SEO for Mobile Apps will be common. With more and more ecommerce websites moving into Apps. SEO for Apps will become a common feature.
- Google to lose market share to more innovative and simple search engines.
- Paid sites like Moz, Ahrefs, SEMRUSH will go down with Google pulling the plug on excessive automated queries from rank tracking software.
- SEO will become pre 2003 standards
- SEO will become more important than ever. With the lack of Google updates there will be no more big rank changes which will work in favor of SEO companies.
- Long quality content pages will be dominant compared to cookie cutter small pages.
- Bigger brands will start focusing more on SEO. It is easier for bigger brands to dominate because they have great site. Most of the big brands already rank well but with some tweaking they can dominate a lot of competitive keywords. I am sure 2017 will bring almost all major brands on top.
- Structured markups will become more important than ever. It will revolutionize how search engines rank your site. Users will get additional data in search results before they click the link to your site.
- SEO spammers will move on top other jobs. It has already happened now most of the SEO spammers have moved on to other jobs since the panda update. Now that Google is becoming more intelligent with algorithms like rank brain, real time Panda, penguin etc it will be almost impossible to spam a site to the top of Google. This will make the SEO spam industry disappear.
- Analytics will play a major role in 2017. With Google’s active promotion of Google analytics and the importance of user behavior, 2017 will see people leaning more towards traffic analytics software to understand user behavior. User behavior online software like Google analytics will play a vital role.
- Organic search results will be ignored more by search engines to protect their own Business interests. I don’t have to explain more about this we see this all the time. Just compare how the search results look to the search results before 7 to 8 years. It is hard to find organic results now for competitive keywords, especially first page organic is buried deep down the page.
Negative SEO used to be a killer tool for many SEOs / webmaster to kill competitor’s search engine rankings. This was common when Penguin update came out. This was when Google said all links your site has is your responsibility regardless of who has control over it. This encouraged competitors to send 1000s of low quality spam SEO links to top ranking sites. Some top ranking sites had devastating effect because of this. Negative SEO was prevalent during 2013-2015 period. Then Google plugged the hole with updates to their penguin algorithm.
This latest Penguin 4.0 update is where Google surrendered and accepted that sites cannot be affected purely by their backlink profile. We at Search Engine Genie were shouting out loud about this issue for years. Finally Google has woke up to the occasion and decided to ignore bad backlinks instead of penalizing a website. It took years for Google to figure out that their penguin algorithm was partially a mistake.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is arguably the most cost-effective digital marketing technique, but also the most challenging to get right.

Description: With so many shifts in SEO industry in 2016, do you have any idea where SEO will go this 2016? Read on to stay on track to the latest SEO trends in 2016!
The year 2015 was relatively quiet in the world of SEO. Though internet marketers had experienced consistent updates in the algorithm, frequent changes in snippets and ever-changing metrics to compete with, but this is something SEO professionals have been used to.
However, there has been a lot of talk in the first quarter of this year that was revolving around the ad blocking and leveraging social media. But, this is sure that 2016 will be a very thrilling year for SEO. Based on our own experience in SEO and market growth, Search Engine Genie has brought to you a couple of major shifts in SEO industry that are likely to occur in 2016.
- Diversification Of Search Boxes:
Since brands have gained more insight into the rankings, they are exploring to get visibility on various search boxes other than the Google. It clearly depicts that Google will be facing tough competition as businesses have started asking rankings on the Amazon, YouTube and various other platforms. Clients have started focusing on their visibility on WebMD, Netflix, Wal-Mart and Newegg which has initiated a fierce SEO competition among technology giants.
- The Rise Of Social Search:
As social media is gaining its muscles among the online users, it is leaving a strong impact and a shift in their search behaviors. Probably, this is the reason that the Facebook is working to improve its internal search. The FB is investing heavily in offering user-friendly search functionalities. So, this has set many new engagements in the SEO world. It will also offer a good opportunity to gain visibility in social search platforms to those brands who have failed to gain visibility on Google due to the recent Google algorithm updates.
- The Era of App Indexing Has Begun:
Till now, what you have been doing was limited to web only, but 2016 will be the year of app indexing. Since the brands have experienced an increase in their online traffic with the use of mobile apps, 2016 will be all about mobile SEO focusing on apps. Do you know people are directly using services from the apps without using organic search as they come handy? This is the reason Google is building its plans to show results using app indexing.
In other words, there is no guarantee that your users will find your content in the same traditional way as they used to get before. But, if you invest in building an app for your business, then together with the app indexing, you will be greatly ensured to reach your audience. So, 2016 has brought up a serious shift in SEO engagements with the fresh concept of app indexing.
In 2016, the SEO would be on an amazing journey that would discover new approaches to gaining online visibility. However, the shifts that have been discussed here will soon prove to be true as these have been brought to your knowledge after an in-depth study of SEO market. In this fierce battle of getting rankings, you would need a good ally who has competitive knowledge of the shifting trends in the Internet Market. Invest in the one today and unfold your success this 2016. Give Search Engine a chance to add more stars to your online identity.
