Get Your Site Banned Faster Than Ever!

Here are some methods to get your site banned by Google:
  • Keyword stuff your site by repeating keywords in the meta tags or in the text and of your website.
  • Link exchange with a banned site or several banned sites
  • Have you and several people report your site as Spam to Google
  • Have a high keyword density for a particular keyword string
  • Have several sites on the same IP address owned by the same entity with a high volume of link exchange. By putting all of your websites on the same IP address instead of spreading them around to several IP address - this will send a red flag to Google and get your site banned.

Small Business Branding Techniques: The Business Card

This business card was printed on 16 pt UV Coated Gloss first side, Matt second side (so the associate can write a quote out easily). The card is thick, heavy and the slick glossy texture on the front side feels and looks like a fresh coat of real paint. Notice the logo of a silhouette of a painter painting the card. Clever design really, rarely do you see smaller businesses exercising inventive branding techniques of this level.
