always think in terms of QUANTITY
Smart forum marketers
always think in terms of QUALITY
The first attitude is what inevitably leads to the oceans of digital toxic waste
that search engines have to try to sift through and classify in order to deliver SERPs that are genuinely relevant and useful
to their users.
The harder you make that task for search engines, the more likely you are to be punished and penalized. The arrival of the semantic web
in recent years has been largely ignored by too many people — including SEO "experts" who continue to emphasize QUANTITY of backlinks, rather than QUALITY.
As others have mentioned in previous posts, if you're serious about getting it right, forget about numbers. Concentrate on building awareness
for yourself as someone who delivers value
(they're not the same thing).
Forums are still the core technology
of the Internet, originally in the form of bulletin boards
, then forums
like this one, then Web 2.0
— the interactive, social
Focus on building relationships
— real, living, breathing connections with people, not
algorithms. That takes a clear vision
of what you want to achieve, time
… the Four Cornerstones of Success
Otherwise you’re trying to push thousands
of marbles up a steep hill — hopeless,
and all you really do with that kind of stupidity is to create hazards
for everyone following you.
through delivering quality
part will eventually lead to respect
on the part of your followers.
These are the people who will BUY
from you. And this is how you turn your buyers
into your most productive, profitable SELLERS
So stop trying to choke and drown the Internet with QUANTITY of digital drivel, sewage and garbage and be seen as someone with information and opinions that are worth hearing and learning from… a true authority
in your chosen area of expertise.
