Site-wide linking merely passes any more credit to the linked pages than single page linking. Linking from the homepage of a site isn’t always that sweetest after all. So what we got? The answer is to find the perfect pages to build links on.
There’re essentially 2 sorts of pages we’d love to have links to ours.
Okay, now you sit down scouring the directories and search engine results for sites in your industry, preparing to send a request for links or simply, offer to buy one. Isn’t it obvious that it’s most favorable to have a link on the homepage of those sites? Actually, no.
Even with an relevant site, you should take some time to find the page that passes the most relevancy to the linked page of yours. How to do this? Simple. Query Google by the phrase targeted terms site:www.linkingsite.com , the page comes out first is what you are looking for – the most relevant to your targeted terms and should be the one that links back to your landing page.
To find the most powerful page of a site, you cannot rely on Google any more. It has a web wide fame of being fickle and I suggest jumpy webmasters stay away from them. 🙂 Anyway, simply feed it with the phrase of site:www.linkingsite.com on Yahoo and the first page coming out is the baby -Â the most powerful page of the site. It is wise to buy another link from this page after pursuing relevancy, especially if it is way more powerful than the rest.
Link(v.), only when it’s absolutely necessary, especially on your premier pages (landing pages from search engines) that have a touching relation with the sales. Every offsite link you make on the page, and even onsite links to other pages, dilutes the theme you intend to rank for in search engines, thus effectively bringing down the performance of targeted terms.
When you have to link, however, make sure that the linked page is as relevant as possible with the linking page. While doing a deep optimization of certain pages, reducing the number of irrelevant links on those pages as many as possible is definitely a good idea. Therefore, you should deflate the site navigation as well as other unnecessary link spots as thin as possible and construct vertical linking structures for each targeted theme while maintaining a site-wide theme that’s more general in niche.
By vertical linking structure, or siloing, I mean within each of the more specifically targeted themes under the site theme, you will link similar pages together but avoid cross-linking among themes targeted for different terms, even if they are related to each other.
Not a full-fledged blog theme which lacks comment capabilities. For weird people only. You are warned.

Basically, PHP frameworks are programming layers that are promoted above PHP itself and that are much easier and quicker to deploy, normalizing and packaging 80% of the routines one is expected to work on without them, such as database interfaces. Therefore they free you from the chores of coding from very scratch line by line and do the common tasks that are shared among most of the projects for you.
Model is essentially a prototype of all similar entities bearing shared descriptive properties. In the database, a table can almost always be interpreted as a model.
View prescribes how the data(models) are presented(in the browser, as webpages for example). In most cases, a view is a webpage template.
Controller is the control hub that can be directly manipulated to control other stuff, namely models and views. It’s where the logic lies in your PHP applications.
3 major PHP frameworks:
1. Code Igniter, is well documented and has a shorter learning curve, thus more appealing to beginners.
2. CakePHP, is more of cup of tea for veteran PHP developers. As intuitive to use as CI, but not as well documented and the learning curve might be a little too long.
3. Smarty, I don’t know much about this one and only tried it once. It’s more like a templating system than a framework, I think. If you don’t plan to add registration functionalities, session management and things like that, you can go with Smarty, though CI and cake can also do a good job in templating.
Update: There’s also a 4th greatly renowned php framework that is Zend Framework. All seems well done and I’m gonna try it out for one of my recent projects soon.
Be a happy webmaster, I must say to myself, to whom I owe the joyfulness of making websites. I shall from now on make websites for the only sake of my own enjoyment and confidence. And I believe it’s the only way to a successful website. It endures and delivers. It dominates. Because joyfulness itself is the ultimate goal of every human life.
Someday you came across a copyrighted picture that goes perfectly with your own content and wanted to embed it in your texts with a link to the original source, wondering if this action was allowed by law. By your ethical holdings and legal awareness, after failure to reach the owner, you decided to take the step forward and put the asset up on your own webpage in a reduced form with appropriate credit and linked it back to the original work, hoping it constituted a fair use that would absolve you of possible copyright infringement.
It’s universally acknowledged that one is not expected to duplicate copyrighted content on the internet either entirely or in portion in the infringement of copyright laws. However, in cases of fair use, borrowing of copyrighted material may not necessarily break the code. Although unfortunately the judge is the ultimate authority on whether it is a fair use or not, there’s essentially 4 factors governing the he or she’s decision-making process.
As the judgement of fair uses is much too subjective and subject to the logic and perspective of the judge, it is highly advised to contact the owner or simply pay a price to get the permission required to display copyrighted work in your own. Apart from the widely accepted criteria listed above, the judge has more to resort to in the judgement of any specific case. For instance, you are more likely to lose with a site filled with advertisements and much less likely so with a non-profit educational .org.
Updated: added an extra style to have a taste of the lemon, aha~ Give it a try in here!
Thanks to Beccary, or this wordpress theme will never be possible. She is as inspiring as she is pretty!
MagMania is born with simplicity in mind, deprived of all bells and whistles, showing the true meaning of conciseness and striving to be as vigorous as possible. Single column it is, with Georgia as the sole font for typography, I intend to construct a theme that stands on its own feet.
However there’s more things to be done than can ever be said. I was planning to give the theme some more refinements
before releasing it to public, yeah, I mean, only weird people like me love it in the current presence, don’t they. -D Moreover, the upcoming 2 weeks is doomed with toil for me cause’ it’s when the professors strain and grade us to decide which are good students and which are not. Though I have made some solid efforts this semester to get as far away from computer games as possible, I am still not in good shape in terms of exams. Ewwwww…..just so exhanstive you know, maybe I’ll never be in good shape.. 🙁 God why you made me go to college?
Forget the bullshit. Now I have prepared the page for you to download the theme, MagMania wordpress theme! Remember this is a work in progress, any suggestion would be appreciated.
Just roaming about some forums to feed myself with daily new information when I came across something worth taking a look.
Above is an interesting discussion of whether linking rules over content or the other way around. I’d say it was indeed not something I, as an SEO novice, had expected. John Scott, and quite some other participants agreed that content, despite the fact Google cried all these years about it, isn’t the King after all. All you had to do is to gain the trust of Google, which mostly, is through link building. The best content aren’t always coming in top SERPs, but those with quality backlinks.
In their defense, John Scott emphasizes Google sees and only sees links as a means of credibility and trust. Google knows quality content only by the number and type of links a page gets, so content should come second after link building. Many’s a time when a site with ordinarily mediocre content appears on the 1st SERP from Google is achieved by quality experienced link building. It also means a savvy website owner can get quicker and higher results than newcomers who build much better content.
Anchor text of links is so important that it is even considered by search engines much more important than what the linked content is originally about when it comes to ranking.
From a beginner’s perspective, combining some basic reasoning, I think content should not come second to link building. Algorithms change, and Google strives to get better results for its audiences, rather than some publishers. Because it’s ultimately the great mass audience that’s in Google’s interest simply in that they are those who view and click on Google’s ads, which still makes a great majority of its revenues. It’s just as simple as that. Google is currently basing the weight of a site too much on backlinks , but what in 2 years? You might get well ranked through some tricky link building strategies now, but it’s the content that guarantees you of the future. Though it does work well present, so your content is indexed fully and ranked decently to get more links. They are just powering each other in a sense. Either way can get you success.
Many a new website such as this one, who has just made its way into Google’s database and got indexed a dozen of pages, might have quite a number of pages ‘indexed’ as ‘Supplemental result’. Use “site:yourwebsite.com” as the phrase in Google search, then jump to SERPs buried behind. Do you got any of these?
If the answer is yes, don’t panic. Let’s first take a look at what it is. Supplemental result is how Google expands its crawling of the web, imbibing more pages to present more results to end users than its primary ‘main index’. So you get the idea, that ‘supplemental results’ comes from ‘supplemental index’, which places lower restraints on what to be indexed.
With a popular search phrase, Google simply serves results from its main index, because there’re plenty of related results in it. Nevertheless when it’s a very specific unusual topic, Google has to turn to the ‘supplemental index’ so as to get enough stuff to show off its gigantic coverage. 🙂 For example, URLs with more than 2 dynamic parameters are very probably indexed in the ‘supplemental index’, given a very low PageRank; Content-barren pages might also end up indexed in the supplemental index, unless it dwells in some very famous website.
In addition, Google assures you that the index in which a site appears doesn’t affect your PageRank. While supplemental result looks no harm (in fact not only small and fresh websites have them, many big ones got many too), that too many supplemental results for your website is absolutely unfavorable. A keywords query answered from ‘main index’ will never have the chance to see those lousy pages in ‘supplemental result’. Although it is sometimes inevitable, you can also choose to do something about it. In order to make Google index most of your pages in its ‘main index’, bear in mind some principles:
