Search Engine genie no email or affiliate marketing

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.

SEO Funny Cartoon Comics -latest trends of 2016

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is arguably the most cost-effective digital marketing technique, but also the most challenging to get right.


Digital Marketing

The First very Organic Result on the First Search Engine Result Page sees about 32.5%of Overall Search Traffic in terms of clicks. The Second domain sees 17.6% while the 7th only sees 3.5%



Google PageRank (Google PR) is one of the methods Google uses to determine a page’s relevance or importance. Important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results. Google PageRank (PR) is a measure from 0 – 10. Google Page rank is based on back links


Google Rankings

Web Search Engines and some other sites use Web crawling or spidering software to update their Web Content or indices of others sites’ web content. Web crawlers can copy all the pages they visit for later processing by a search engine which indexes the downloaded pages so the users can search much more efficiently.


Search engine

A website is a collection of related webpages, including multimedia content, typically identified with a common domain name and published on at least one webserver.

SEO beginner PPT from Educational institutions:

Here are some interesting SEO beginners PPTs from top universities. Today many universities are teaching SEO as part of their curriculum. If you are a beginner in SEO or a SEO service provider this set of SEO PPTs will be very useful for you. All SEO power point presentations are provided for education purpose only.

SEO is common sense Not Rocket science

Is SEO a qualification. Many think so but no it is not a qualification. There is no degree required for this or does have any position related. I see in countries like India they call themselves SEO analyst, SEO senior expert etc. Those sounds really funny. Who gave these people these titles? Those who gave this name are just trying to scam people. There are no posts related to SEO. The maximum you can call yourself is Search engine optimizer. There are no better titles than this.


Same SEO is not rocket science it requires patience, dedication and lot of your time. If time is money for you then doing SEO is not your cup of tea. You need to find some good SEO companies so don’t have to use up your time. But if you have time in your hands then it is all Do It Yourself SEO. Don’t spend a penny if you have time there are lot of online materials to read and understand the way SEO works these days. If you spend 3 months you will read most of the details required for SEO. 6 months you can update yourself on past trends too. It is important to know the current situation and past so that you don’t make mistakes that was penalized by search engines before.

I stress again SEO is not rocket science anyone can do it. Anyone calling themselves SEO analyst or what ever crap don’t believe there are no terms like that. SEO is important but Search engine optimizers are not always important.

SEO 301 redirect from http to https

Recently our site was moved from http to https. Moving a big site like ours was not easy. It took us a lot of time to move. We had too many static pages which made our life difficult. When we move our site from http to https it is important that move everything to the secure section.

SEO 301 redirect from http to https

Areas to consider are CSS, images, JavaScript and any other client side includes should be from secure section. If your URLs are relative you don’t have a problem but if your URLs are absolute then you have a problem in your hand. Make sure you search and replace all URLs that have absolute links. We search for pages with URLs like,, etc.

These type of URLs are replaced with https instead of http.

But before moving into all these details make sure https works perfectly on your site. Next important thing is to 301 redirect all http pages to https pages.

Because we are on an Apache server we used this code in our .htaccess file.\

RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on RewriteRule ^/?(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R,L]

This code worked great till we went into our wordpress pages.

We have about 8 wordpress blogs.

Insert code here

Then we need to login to our wordpress section and change the htaccess files there. We replaced above code in .htaccess in each wordpress blog root section. Boom it worked. We never had any problems after that.

To make sure browsers don’t throw insecure content error for wordpress blogs. Use “wordpress https” plugin. It is freely available for download.

If anyone need help moving site to a secure server contact us we are more than willing to help you.

HummingBird Algorithm

On September 27, 2013 Google launched a new “Hummingbird” algorithm at its 15th anniversary event. The name Hummingbird was used as searches are turned to be “precise and fast.” with this latest update.


Hummingbird is an entirely new updated search algorithm incorporating new technology combined with older features of the existing algorithms. It approaches search engine queries in an intelligent way that instead of looking at the individual words that match with the keywords of finding page, the algorithm aims to understand what the users intention was – figuring out the reason what exactly the user looking for to search.

This release is basically a platform that enables Google to better handle “conversational” search queries.

Working strategies of Hummingbird

The major change what made Hummingbird to be so special than past versions of the Google algorithms is that its conversational search.

For example, if you search for ‘shipping companies near me’, then Hummingbird knows that ‘near me’ might mean where you are when you’re searching, it understands the user searches for the shipping services in his nearby locality. This clearly indicates many people are searching for results without using the appropriate keywords.

Hummingbird breaks this dismay by introducing Conversational Search concept-  allowing user to ask Google a question, as you would a friend, and it answers you using contextual and background knowledge (just like a real person would). Hence the importance to keyword slackens behind.

Few new post-Hummingbird SEO best practices

  •  Long-tail phrases have to be given more importance than keywords in order to prepare for more semantic search.
  •  Website content has to be clear and concise that answers all the questions what user may have.
  • Need to answer the “5 Ws” (Who, What, Where, When, and Why) and also “How” when it comes to product or service the company present.

SEO and page Rank strategies

The implementation of this new algorithm has raised number of queries in the users’ side whether this new methodology will forfeit SEO and page ranking strategies. But Google strictly answers with its strong words as”NO” .Google says there is nothing new or different SEO guidelines has been introduced. Guidance remains the same, it says: have original, high-quality content. Signals that have been important in the past remain important. The keywords within a query still play a major role. Hummingbird just allows Google to process them in new and hopefully better ways.

Benefits VS opportunities -Hummingbird

The release of Hummingbird creates the perfect scenario for smaller websites to gain more exposure. As long tailed keywords are to possess more priority, content stands top that holds the ability to answer search engine queries. The algorithm broadens the horizons by expanding number of entrance pages that answer the questions being posed by the target audience. Answering more questions is now considered as the vital part of the new Hummingbird algorithm.

The new algorithm was designed in the sense to address all users search conveniently. Many users are not aware of using keywords that direct to appropriate page they try out with the normal conversation as they talk with their friends. This issue was greatly analyzed and brought out with the solution which is “Humming bird”.

Future with Hummingbird algorithm

The Hummingbird algorithm is meant to turn the SEO into the marketing strategy. It will take little time to get familiar with the new methodology but it’s an evolution of Google in elevating preference for quality content that address user’s actual needs in their own natural language. Google is increasingly concerned to find content that is relevant and trusted, in essence content with authority. The algorithm has grabbed more attention with common users. In future, it is no doubt that Hummingbird will extend its wing in elevating the search experience to new level.

Operation Kill competitor – successful

Google has long claimed no one can hurt a competitor site. We believed Google all these time but we wanted to test it recently. We took a main tail keyword where our client ranks position 12. Our client wanted us to push into top 10 results. So we tried our secret weapon against our competitors. We added a bunch of low quality links from sites deemed low quality by Google. Just added 30 unique links from different sites to each competitor and BOOM within 2 weeks we saw the competitor sites drop 6 to 8 positions. One competitor dropped from position 6 to 14 other dropped position 9 to 17. Well it can be a coincidence but there was no update during the time we tested and those sites were sitting there for about 2 years. So what Google is claiming is truth we don’t know, but we believe we can sabotage a competitor rankings but pushing low quality links. When I say low quality links the links we added are from good pagerank pages and they are strong themselves but come from a negative area.

We wish Google seriously looks into this issue. If you think I am lying we don’t care but it is 100% true we tested and the results are positive. So why disclose a secret weapon? LOL we don’t want to take it as a weapon we just tested we prefer to do SEO search engine friendly way. We tested this to bring awareness to people.

Do you disclose the test results?
Ofcourse NO. We don’t want to keep our client’s rankings and online Business in jeopardy.

Affected by PAID links? We can help you

Affected By Paid Links

Google has long time warned not to get paid links for the purpose of increasing PageRank and rankings. But so many companies kept buying links. For a long time people got away with paid links. Some got caught in Google paid link penalty some got away without any issues.

Recently ( September 2010 ) Google’s engineers removed the plug on paid links. We have seen and experienced 1000s of sites loosing rankings within a span of 2 weeks.

Almost all the sites were buying links one way or the other. We started getting leads where people have bought links and were affected by Google’s recent buying links penalty.

We at Search Engine Genie have always stayed away from paid links to boost PageRank. We have denied lot of offers from link brokers to buy links from them for our clients. In our company we don’t encourage buying links. There are areas where we tend to go a bit aggressive due to the competition but we always stayed away from buying links.

Till today we never bought a single link to our client. Most of the links are either got naturally or traded or got from some other purpose other than link buying.

If you recently got affected by paid link penalty we are ready to help you. We can get your site recovered and ranked without any paid links. We have done this before and doing it now for our clients. Google kept stressing buying links for the purpose of increasing ranking and PageRank is a big no-no.
