On 3 Ways to Get More Google Reviews for Your Business

Thanks for the comments and sorry for the long delay in responding.

Pete - that's a very good point you make but I've found if there is some form of incentive and you make people aware they might have to take a minute to set up an account, the majority are usually happy to do it.

Arun - Yes, you're right. Everyone is looking for a quick way to make an impact but it takes time and a lot of hard work as you say to build up relationships and followings on social media.

On Blog Commenting for SEO? Time for a Rethink

Hi Shell, sorry for the delay in replying and thanks for your comments. 

Yes, I'm sure Google will be clever enough to reward quality comments that add value and not reward the obviously spammy ones. 

You're so right about short term gains - I had one client who ignored my suggestions completely and decided to do things his own way. He was full of himself when his rankings had increased dramatically after two months of using automated backlink software.

A few months later his site was penalised and he was back on the phone begging for help!

Thanks again
