Great video. Knowing how IRA custodian fees are charged is important before considering a 401k rollover or IRA transfer, because they can add up and eat into your returns.

Is a self directed IRA a good idea for you? This video was well done. Enjoy

+tlwceo I now understand the difference between an ordinary rollover and a Direct Rollover. Question: Do the Rollover rules that you discussed in the video with respect to the number per year and how often also apply to Direct Rollovers?

I just saw a shameless offer enter in my email inbox for something I'd call the Link Blaster 5000. I recommend avoiding these sorts of backlinking tools. If they work, it is only for a 1-2 months at most until Google finds your site is ranking without any real reason and then takes it out.

Just because a SEO guru says you need backlinks, does not mean that you can shortcut it. Acquiring quality backlinks is hard work. What is your process for assessing the quality of a link back to your site and then acquiring a backlink?

In general, the easier it is to acquire a link for your website, the lower the link quality.  If someone is unwilling to link to or share the page with your site's link on it, then it is a link I'd suggest avoiding in the first place.

Simply, old SEO was about meta tag keyword stuffing and was ruled by link spammers who could backlink their site to death with their keywords using automated software in order to rank a site higher than it was supposed to be ranked in the Google search results.

These types of services are still out there and I suggest avoiding them like the plague.

Today's #SEO is much more comprehensive and is essentially real marketing and targeting authentic content to an engaged audience that you have a sound relationship.

Panda 4.0 is supposed to be a softer Panda; meaning it was designed to help sites that were inappropriately hit in earlier Panda iterations, and therefore Google's goal is to extend more grace to smaller business websites with thinner content. Google and their pundits have said as much.

So, if Google is giving more grace to quote-unquote poorer content, then low quality content is not exactly what they are targeting with this update. So, what was the real cause of any rank drops associated with this new Panda update? I'd contend Panda 4.0 is more related to sites with very poor quality backlinks than any other site quality factor. The softer Panda is a misnomer for sites with low quality backlinks. The algorithm for them should be named angry Panda in their case. This new update was not nice to sites with low quality backlinks at all!

However, don't worry folks. Penguin 3.0 is soon to roll out and I think it will be deal another devastating blow to sites with spammy links that will make Panda 4.0 look soft. :)

Would anyone like to add anything?

If you want stay in business post #Penguin 3.0, then ignore these #link building offers... I just received an email from a supposed #SEO company that said these links are Penguin and Panda friendly... I guess these links are friendly if you want to tank your competitors...

+Razvan Gavrilas One of our client sites lost all of their hard earned ranking in Aug 2012. The best I can describe, the site was hit with a nasty phrama hack.

The hacker literally took over the website unbeknownst to us at the time sabotaged everyone of the site's pages with cloaked phrama RX pages of their own. The hack was so bad and embedded into the fabric of our site that we finally had to re-install WP and rebuild the site from scratch.

To make matters worse, we still have 100s, if not 1000s (not sure since Google does not give us all the links in the GWT) of cloaked pages from foreign 3rd party websites with links pointing to our site. The links are mainly exact match, commercial keyword anchor text links that include: viagra, levitra, propecia and cialis. We have notified Google about all the sites with links pointing to our site here https://www.google.com/safebrowsing/report_badware/?hl=en, we disavowed all the links at the domain: level using the Google disavow tool and have tried on multiple occasions to reach out by email to the other hacked website owners, who are in the majority of cases, are unconvinced about the issue on their end. I am not sure what to do about this? Do you or does anyone else have any helpful thoughts or words of wisdom?
 
I don't spend a ton of time researching penalties, but this post over on +cognitiveSEO is a must read - http://seer.is/1sncPVT 
At the end of the day, Google successfully made the transition from the invasion of parasite hosting and shady redirects to relevant and accurate results on the topic.

I appreciate the content you have put together on your blog and for taking an interest in my situation. I'll consider my next move.

Perhaps, the Google forum can be of further assistance. Let's stay in touch.

Introduction
I am a search engine marketing consultant and content marketing specialist. I specialize in helping websites improve their organic search ranking and traffic through engaging site content.

Many say SEO is dead, but I disagree. The way so-called SEO was done is dead and for that I am extremely thankful.

I blog in the finance arena ... I am also an avid reader. I also hope to start blogging in the SEO and marketing community once I revamp my website.

Best Tree Care is a top notch tree service. Certified arborist Brad and his team of arborists are second to none. I would not use anyone else. They are timely and they over deliver on their services. I highly recommend them.
