Michele Judkins, New Media Marketing

Me, completely lost in the city of Venice and very happy about it…

Hey there, I’m Michele! Full disclosure, I always feel slightly awkward writing about myself so let’s go ahead and dive right in…

I began my academic journey pursuing a psychology degree at MCC, but quickly realized I had a knack for marketing, and have since turned psychology into an immersion. I started my New Media Marketing degree at RIT about a year ago and look forward to making these, “apply for graduation” emails into a reality this fall of 2019. I’ve impressed myself by remaining on Dean’s List with a massive credit load every semester and working close to full time. It’s all about surprising yourself with strengths you didn’t know you had.

The stars aligned during my second semester and I found myself completing my co-op requirement at a startup digital marketing company, created by none other than an RIT alumni. I’ve been learning from a founder that cares deeply for our clients and does not believe in delivering a sub-par product. She sets high standards for digital marketing and I feel grateful to be learning from a master of the craft, while simultaneously attending a highly regarded university–packing my brains with as much knowledge as possible!

I choose New Media Marketing for the opportunity to do a bit more micro writing and to explore the visually creative avenues built in, such as creating a stunning UI or engaging display ads. I love diving into Google Analytics to see what’s working and what needs improvement. In the age of instant gratification, we get to see the fruits of our labor quite fast–one small bonus for our distraction tortured generation.

Come graduation this Fall of 2019, I hope to have improved user experiences through my work, and to have discovered as many ways as possible to report competitive marketing gains to clients.

A heftier goal of mine is to do some lengthier writing one day, it would be an absolute dream to write a sci-fi series.

That’s about all, folks! Most of my work experience is for you to find out on your own. If interested, check out my Resume and LinkedIn.

Samantha N. M. Wagner – New Media Marketing

My name is Sam Wagner and I am a New Media Marketing undergrad student at Rochester Institute Technology. Currently, I am in my third year, expecting to complete my four-year degree at the end of this term. I have a minor in Advertising and Public Relations.

About Me

My experience includes working my past two summers as a part-time intern with weCreate Website Design & Marketing, where I learned and developed skills in SEO, copy-writing, and digital marketing. I have also worked as brand ambassadors for numerous companies, including BANGS Shoes, Pura Vida Bracelets, and Serengetee, promoting the brands and their products across numerous social media sites. Currently, I am the marketing assistant for the RIT Press. Here, I conduct market research for new publications, manage social media accounts, and do digital advertising for current and new publications.

Looking towards the future, my plans include continuing my education as a graduate student. I hope to be accepted into the Market Research graduate program at Michigan State University for the upcoming fall term. This would be a one year program, letting me complete both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in a total of four years. After graduation, I would like to work on gaining experience in the social media marketing field. My end goal is to work in the music industry, as part of Spotify’s marketing research team. Spotify is one of my favorite companies and their marketing research has put them at the top of the music streaming industry. Working there would fit my interests and hobbies best.

My name is Eva Skovli, and I am currently an international graduate student at Rochester Institute of Technology, coming all way from Norway. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Creativity, Innovation and Business Development. Currently, I am studying marketing and communications, graduating May 2019 with a master of science degree.  My goal is to work with digital marketing, social media, and content creation. I am also planning to take a certificate in Digital Marketing.

Outside the classroom I also run a lifestyle blog writing about college, green living, productivity hacks accessibility, and products I love.  Here is a favorite blog post I wrote, “10 best apps for deaf and hard of hearing people”.  I also speak four different languages, and I love drinking coffee as much as I love learning new things and to solve problems. I am also always updated on the latest technology and social media. Accessibility is a big passion of mine, always try to look for different ways to bridge communication between the deaf and hearing world through technology.

I was initially attracted to the field of entrepreneurship, marketing, and communications because I find it to be very dynamic and creativity based. I was first exposed to the marketing when I started up an online-novelty store called Kipekee with a friend, a store with unique practical and well-designed products and gifts for the home. Here is an interview where I share my journey.  We sold Kipekee in 2013 because we were ready for new challenges.

In the future, I want to do so many things, but I aim to work with digital marketing, social media, and content creation. I also want to become a social entrepreneur, working with various projects benefitting local communities and the world. 😃

Exploring Life After Business School

Future successful business man Yasmani Aguiar smiling at camera
2017 Student Government Photo

Little Bit About Me

Hello to All,

My name is Yasmani Aguiar and I come from paradise in the Caribbean; that’s right, I was born in Cuba and have been fortunate to visit my home land four times now. If you ever have questions about my journey and experiences there, don’t hesitate to ask. Also, I’m the Student Senator for our lovely Saunders College of Business. I’m majoring in finance with minors in marketing and economics. My hobbies include exercising, skateboarding when it’s warm out, cooking and exploring different states/countries. I aspire to lead a healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. In conclusion, I enjoy trying new things in all aspects of life so I may experience as much as I can while I can and to establish an awesome lifestyle for the future.

Future Goals

As a Finance student, I’m looking towards applying my skills, experience and knowledge towards a non-traditional finance role. Furthermore, I’ve been looking at business development jobs, financial advising and rotational leadership programs in reputable companies in the U.S. I’m also open to relocating anywhere and working abroad for some time; as the title implies, I want to experience life’s journey since I only have one life to do so. Additionally, my interests in photography, health and wellness and traveling will be somehow combined in the future as side projects or a business.

Furthermore, self-learning is something I enjoy and will continue to partake in . My goal is to learn more about health and wellness with the possibility of transitioning to that sector full-time and opening my own health-related business in the future. My main goal throughout my career(s) is to look forward to going to work every morning I wake up and enjoying what I do.

Delta Sigma Pi Initiation Day December 2017

I’m a 4th Year New Media Marketing student at the Rochester Institute of Technology with minors in Finance and Communication. I will be graduating in December 2018 with a B.S. degree in Business Administration.

About Me

I am originally from Massena, New York, a small town neighboring the Canadian border. I now consider Rochester my home after moving here in the summer of 2014.  I’ve always thought it was wiser to move away from home and realize you want to move back, rather than to never leave at all. Outside the classroom, I am the president and co-captain of the RIT Roller Hockey club. I have been also a brother of a Business Fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi, since freshman year. Throughout my years at RIT I have met some incredible people, been introduced to many new ideas, and grown into an aspiring business professional. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in college, I am becoming increasingly eager to see what opportunities lie ahead in the next chapter of my life.

Future Aspirations

When I first entered college, I had predominantly no idea what I wanted to accomplish in life. I now envision myself working in an environment where I will have the opportunity to surround myself with like-minded individuals to collaboratively get things done. I am still unsure which route I will take to get me there. As a result, I am exploring any and all opportunities that come my way.  Since, I have found a passion for marketing and sales. I love the person to person interactions that the two fields have to offer. I believe that building legitimate relationships with others is a key component of success in every facet of life. Eventually, I’d like to end up in the sports industry.

I am looking to expand my professional network. So please take the time to connect with me on LinkedIn and check out my resume. I have provided links to both below. If nothing else, do me a huge favor and simply click on each of the links below. It will help me a great deal with my Search Engine Marketing Analytics class.

Thank you for your time, I appreciate it.

Eboni Ellis

My name is Eboni, I study New Media Marketing and I love art! There is art in the way a wave crashes on

the sand or the way a meal is presented at a restaurant. You can say I’ve dedicated my life to the arts. I have bungee jumped in Mexico, jet skied in Aruba, and even cooked paella in Spain. I’ve been savvy with paint brushes and pencils for as long as I can remember. I consider myself to be very free spirited and open minded. So, when it came to picking a career for myself the choice was obvious! I was going to study… new media marketing.

Social Coin Company group photo coop for new media marketing

Confused? Well let me explain. I believe marketing is a form of art. Anything that requires a level of creativity and innovation is art. Media Marketing done right has the ability to tap into people’s emotions, twist the way they think and move millions towards a common goal. If that’s not an art form I don’t know what is. Have you ever seen a n add the made you smile or a commercial that brought you dangerously close to tears? Well that is art… and art has always been a huge part of my life and by studying marketing I know it always will be.

I was able to apply the skill sets I learned into my work experience and have had huge impact on not only the company but the world! If you want to learn more about me and how I am doing my part to change the marketing world check out the links below!

Eric Gaspar Social Media Marketer

My name is Eric Gaspar.

Eric Gaspar

I specialize is in social media marketing and advertising which includes hands on experience with both traditional, new media marketing and analytics. I’m a 4th year New Media Marketing Major with extra courses in Film Studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Social Media Marketing Work Experience

I have experience in business planning, marketing strategizing, and providing advertising support. Furthermore, my skill set includes blogging, social media, creating ads, evaluating websites and developing strategic plans for improvement based on analytics.

Additionally, this past fall I had the opportunity to co-op with Ciredon Environmental and Safety Services, Inc. During my co-op, I met with the firm’s management team to discuss their goals and objectives. The purpose was to assess their existing business plan and marketing strategy. Upon the completion of my review, I presented the results of my analysis to the top management which showed that the firm’s strategy was exclusively focused on the use of traditional marketing methods.  As a result, I developed a marketing strategy that incorporated new media strategies. Furthermore, I recommended the firm  establish a LinkedIn profile and also improved their website. Additionally, I recommended that Ciredon develop their own safety films, blogs, podcasts and video games for training purposes. During this co-op, I demonstrated my ability to implement the skills that I have developed during my college course work.

About Me

I’m from Hamburg, NY which is a suburb of Buffalo, NY . I’m very passionate about music, film and video games. I write a blog called “The Metalizer” which covers Hard Rock and Heavy Metal music. On my blog I’ve written about albums, bands and other articles. My additional coursework at R.I.T. concentrated on Film Studies which enabled me to gain a better understanding of the film industry and effective marketing strategies in the US and abroad. Ever since I was young child, I’ve been fascinated with video games because of their competitive and strategic nature. I also enjoyed working with other players on a team in order to achieve goals and objectives. The skills and knowledge that I have learned in music, film and video games have helped me apply them to my work in new media marketing.

In conclusion, I would love to have a career that combines my passions and skills.

Sooa Chung Industrial Designer

About Me

Sooa Chung Industrial Designer

Hello! My name is Sooa Chung. I was born in Seoul, South Korea and moved to America at age of 14. Currently, I am a 4th-year Industrial Design student with a minor in Marketing and immersion in Advertising and Public Relations at Rochester Institute of Technology. I would like to call myself a world traveler, although I have not been or never will be able to visit all the countries around the globe. However, it is one of my dreams to travel all the places that are on my bucket list, and the next ideal destination would be Spain. 

What is Industrial Design?

Many people have asked me what industrial design is, surprisingly, even at career fairs. So here it is: Industrial design is a discipline known for creating products and systems that optimize function, value, and appearance. It has thrived in recent years—as the value of industrial design in cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovation efforts is recognized.

My Passion

Aside from industrial design, I am passionate about learning other fields of design outside of my major, such as UI/UX, graphic, furniture, packaging design to broaden up the spectrum of my knowledge in design. As I have a minor in marketing, I foresee to integrate marketing methodology into a design to enhance the understanding of users interacting with the product from the beginning. Through my work experience in the professional industry, I have proven my organizational skills and design communication skills as well as improving team working skills. I am always open to learn and take advantage of every situation that I am thrown into and make the best out of it.

Abigail Woodward | Behind A RIT Social Media Account

Hello!

My name is Abigail Woodward. I’m at 4th year New Media Marketing Student. I’m currently a social media coordinator for Abigail Woodward Photoauxiliary services for RIT.
 About Me
I was born and raised in Rochester.
Which means two things:
1) I’ve had a garbage plate
2) I can drive in the snow.
I started my college career at Monroe Community College with an Associates in Business Administration. During that time at MCC my father was diagnosed with ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease. During that time, I wasn’t able to do a lot of extracurriculars during that time. I would split my time between my dying father, two part-time jobs, and  school full time. From MCC I transferred to RIT, my dream school, and continued to make my father proud. He tried to hang on so he could see me graduate but, passed away March of ’17. Since then, I’ve been able to take time for myself to help re-fall in love with RIT and Rochester. 
Work History
In New Media Marketing, you have to be flexible and learn as much as possible so during my co-ops.
Summer ’17
    In the summer of ’17 I was able to start as a social media intern for RIT’s business incubator, Venture Creations. It was a wonderful experience, I learned how to run a professional social media account and see development of  businesses first hand. Also, I strengthened my Photoshop skills as well as using Newsletter software.
Fall ’17
   For Fall ’17 I was the retail marketing intern for Barnes & Noble @ RIT. At Venture Creations, we had start-ups from different areas, so focusing on one building such as Barnes & Noble @ RIT was a nice change of pace. At Barnes & Noble I worked on their social media as well as content creation and event planning.
What I’m Doing Now
  Currently, I work with a great team of people at RIT’s Student Auxiliary Services. I help coordinate their social media accounts and help during events.
So In All I’ve Helped Run:
  • Venture Creations Incubator’s Twitter and Facebook
  • Barnes & Noble @ RIT’s Facebook and Instagram
  • Digital Den’s Facebook
  • Global Village’s Facebook and Instagram
  • RIT Dining Services’ Facebook and Twitter

Backstory

Elementary School

Christian was born and raised in Farmingville, New York which is on Long Island. He has always been one to experience new things and explore his interests. From a young age, Christian participated in gymnastics, baseball, and basketball, but he always had a place for arts and crafts. When it came to his fifth grade yearbook, he wrote that he’d love to be a cartoonist when he grew up because he could create anything and shape an entire world of his own. He also learned at the end of elementary school that he had a knack for singing and wanted to pursue it further in middle school.

Middle School

Although he was intending to focus more on music, Christian also played football leading into middle school, however,  he didn’t enjoy it as much as he thought he might and left. When school started, Christian did what he intended to do and pursued singing throughout middle school. He joined choir and the school drama club. In his first year, Christian managed to get a solo in the show. As everyone may realize, middle school is a weird place and Christian’s “social circle” began to be established. By the end of middle school, his voice was going through a quick change and his singing was affected. He had a solo for the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA), but did so poorly due to frequent register changes that he was never given a score. In high school, Christian had no interest in further pursuing music.

High School

In high school, he participated in FIRST Robotics for his freshman and sophomore year, but he realized that the organization at his school had politics that he was not interested in. He quit, got a crazy haircut, changed his style and joined track. In junior year, he was in cross country, swimming, track, student government, chess club, model united nations, and strategy and tactics club. He began to hangout less with the same people and more with new people. This allowed him to gather many social perspectives and relate more to many people. When he was meeting many new people, he came to the realization he wanted to be an engineer. To be more exact, he wanted to be an aviation and aerospace mechanical engineer. He then questioned this idea his senior year when his interest in arts and music reemerged.

Today

When Christian got to RIT, he was already contemplating his major as Engineering Exploration, but he was uncertain as to what he’ll change to. After his first semester of exploring, he switched to Marketing. He learned so much about business that he was unaware of before and it interested him. He loved strategies, business plans, economics, and even accounting interested him. Overtime, he came to the conclusion he wanted to switch to New Media Marketing. Then, since the curriculum taught very little about resources and pricing, he chose to double major in Economics. With those, he can gather a deep understanding of resources and people while he works on his start-up: Canopy.

Michael Titcomb

Hi! I’m Michael Titcomb.

I’m a graduating New Media Marketing Major with an immersion in Music.  I’ve loved my time at RIT and the fact that I am leaving is bittersweet.  I’ve gained so many great skills here in my classes.  Through those classes and my co-op experience I have transformed myself from a lazy freshman to a motivated candidate for the job market.  In my final semester at RIT, I am especially excited to learn more about SEO during this class.

Work Experience

In January 2016 I landed an exciting co-op opportunity with Eastman Kodak Company here in Rochester.  What started as a summer job turned into a 2-year long relationship in which I worked both full-time, and part-time while taking classes.  My classes somewhat prepared me for the job, but I feel that I learned even more about marketing and simply working in a marketing position while I was there.

More recently and currently, I am a contracted WordPress developer for the local Rochester non-profit, Be UninTIMidated.  Be UninTIMidated is dedicated to helping people with rare forms of appendix cancer, and raising awareness to gain ground for treatment.

More About Me & Links

Though currently based in Rochester, my home is in Burlington, Vermont, where I was born.  Being from Vermont I love snowboarding, hiking, and rock climbing, among other outdoor activities.  I played in the Vermont Youth Orchestra for 5 years, which helped grow my love for music.  I love to write and produce music, and I have grown these skills through some courses at RIT such as Electronic Music Production.  I had the pleasure of helping write and record music with a fellow RIT student for his video game, Apollon Blue.  A few select pieces from the game can be listened to at the link below.

Apollon Jazz – My first try at making jazz music.  I was very proud with the result and this ended up being the theme for the game.

Kysa – Social Media Specialist

All About Kysa

Portrait of Kysa W
Kysa Willemsen – New Media Marketing

From a small town in Ontario, Canada named Forest, Kysa Willemsen is in her fourth year at the Rochester Institute of Technology. She is studying new media marketing with a minor in advertising and public relations. She will be graduating with a bachelor’s degree in May of 2018.

Life as a Student Athlete

During Kysa’s first semester at RIT she decided to try a new sport. That is when she became a member of the RIT crew team. Since joining she has been a rower and coxswain for both the women’s and men’s teams. Practices at 6AM each morning have helped her stay on top of her studies. Even finding ways to prioritize time management when she is travelling for races. Balancing school, sports, work and a social life has proven to be difficult but she wouldn’t want to change this experience for the world. Overall, being a student athlete has taught Kysa control, motivation and flexibility.

Studying Abroad

Kysa at Big Ben
Kysa Abroad in London, England

In the spring of her third year at RIT Kysa studied in London, England at the London South Bank University. She embraced opportunities to travel and learn from cultures all around Europe. Her favourite was to enjoy locations that were off the beaten path rather than tourist-targeted locations. Unlike the American school system, academics in England were set up differently. Each course was weighted mostly on one exam or paper therefore it highlighted the fact that second-chances aren’t always available.

In the “Real World”

Since 2014 Kysa has gained experience with Sunripe Freshmarket. She helped introduce social media and online communications into the company’s marketing. In December of 2014 she ran the company’s first online promotion. This was for a buy 1 get 1 free event they hold yearly. This event was only advertised with traditional marketing platforms prior to that year. During the event that December Sunripe saw a large increase in year over year sales at a fraction of their previous marketing costs. Today, Kysa continues to manage all of Sunripe’s online communications through Facebook, Instagram, website and email. This includes promoting products and events, answering consumer questions, creating content and more. All from anywhere in the world.

Hanna Hawkins, 2017

About Hanna Hawkins:

Hello! Hanna Hawkins is my name and I’m currently a fourth year New Media Marketing Major at the Rochester Institute of Technology, who is double minoring in Media Arts and Technology and Advertising and Public Relations. My graduation date is December 2018! I primarily chose RIT because of the diversity in culture and people of who attend RIT.  I chose my major because of rhe great co-op program and its unique aspects.

Extracurriculars:

Throughout my R.I.T. career I’ve participated in various amounts of clubs or activities. One that stuck and became a major part of my life was  ZTA. Zeta has helped me strengthen my communication skills and expand my outlook on situations! I currently work 2 part-time jobs. I work as a banquet server at the Double Tree by Hilton while also being the student social media manager for the RIT Office of Career Services and Co-op! At the office I assist in managing various social media accounts, help increase engagement in different demographics, I aid in facilitating events and creating and planning content. Since I do work alot and am a full time student I really value being in my sorority. It has not only allowed me to grow into the person I am today but shown the person I can be, a strong, outgoing, driven individual who will be as successful as she wants to be.

Why?

Social media is something that I’ve grown up with and become very passionate about. I am planning on going into a career that includes content planner or creating but, I’m always looking to learn something new. I look forward to working in a company that’ll allow me to learn and grow with their company. When I graduate this December I hope to find a full-time position somewhere warm. I’m looking primarily at North Carolina and California. I like North Carolina because my sister, whom I am very close with, currently lives there. I’ve also heard Charlotte, North Carolina is a new and upcoming area for social media marketing and startups. California has always been a dream of mine! Calfifornia has always been known for dreams coming true, therefore there are quite a few startups in the area! I’ve always thought about the idea of working with a startup becuase it allows the employees to grow with the companies!

Sundy He: Graduating New Media Marketing Student

Hello! My name is Sundy, and I’m a New Media Marketing student at RIT, preparing to graduate in May 2018.

My passion in new media marketing

Starting my college career undeclared allowed me to discover what I love to do. There is nothing better than being able to help someone, no matter how big or small. Marketing allows me to be creative in how I can help others find what they need. The digital world gives businesses more of a chance to learn about their consumers just as much as consumers can continue to learn about them. As a digital marketer, I strive to help businesses help their consumers through creation and curation.

I grew to love new media marketing even more as I gained more experience. I worked as an SEO Intern at LittleThings Inc, and helped manage social media for RIT’s Office of Career Services.

Find out more on Sundy He’s resume and connect with me on Sundy He’s LinkedIn profile.

More than just marketing

Aside from my passion for marketing, I love to create.Sundy He New Media Marketing student

I enjoy writing. I keep my own blog called A Grey Sunday, exploring my other passion for makeup and fashion. My Instagram @sundyheNY hosts a variety of makeup posts, with the occasional food photo because I also love food in (almost) any way, shape, or form.

I have also written for LittleThings.com, which also served to expand my skills in SEO writing. My most successful piece was about “coconut oil for acne scars,” which you can see on page 1 of the Google and Bing results! Check out my content on the Sundy He LittleThings author page.

I play around with web development here and there based on what I have learned through my coursework and in my spare time. You can see a sample of my work on Sundy’s RIT webpage.

My career goals

After graduation, I hope to continue working in SEO or social media, but I am always looking to learn more about digital marketing and advertising. I am willing to take risks and push myself to do more than I think I can do so I can become a better marketer than I was before. I want to help businesses grow, develop stronger relationships with customers, and bring more ideas to life.

About

I am a content marketer and brand strategist graduating with a degree in Digital Marketing from Rochester Institute of Technology in May 2018. A balanced left and right-brain thinker, I am constantly testing, learning and optimizing, all while applying a refined creative edge.

As a content marketer, I am a proactive agent in the areas of search engine marketing, social media, branding, content strategy, and paid advertising, I consistently stay on top of trends in the world of content marketing with an intense personal interest in food and fashion culture.

I excel at writing compelling stories, employing empathy to understand audiences, and have a penchant for all things analytical. I am adept at leading, executing and tracking the performance of demand generation campaigns across various social platforms.

Story

Hailing from Philly, I was raised by a kind, hardworking German father and a no-nonsense, but incredibly selfless, Chinese mother from who I’ve absorbed both a driven and empathic mindset.

My focus as a professional, and as a person, stems from my love of community. If I’ve learned anything throughout my college career and work experience, it’s that one must be relentless and in constant pursuit of improvement, all while continually learning and growing. In this vein, I’ve taken on freelance work as a content marketer, becoming ingrained in the surrounding community and extending what I’ve learned in the classroom into the real world.

As the Program Director for WITR 89.7, an FM radio station serving the greater Rochester area, I work alongside a team of multi-talented DJs and producers to bring lesser known music to the community.

Just some radio kids apple picking.

Most recently, I’ve been assisting AVVINO, a local, high-end, contemporary restaurant with their marketing, web presence and social media, redesigning their website and converting web traffic into dinner reservations. This was a business I loved from the first water glass I filled, to the last table I wiped down. I feel fortunate that I can apply my knowledge as a digital marketer to positively impact the lives of everyone working there. 

Avvino
Avvino!


To find work in a setting that promotes constant collaboration and open communication is a goal of mine. In a place like that, I can focus on growing and leading. I can work harder, better, and feel good about it. 

I am always on the lookout for additional freelance opportunities to help grow small businesses, individual brands, and everything in between.

I’m currently on the job hunt, searching for a full-time digital marketing position.

Google’s Penguin update, triggers and how to recover

The Google Penguin update is aimed at focusing the SERP ranking of the site which used manipulative links violating the webmaster’s framework by using black-hat SEO techniques to falsely increase the site ranking. This was commonly termed as Link Schemes. It also involves keyword stuffed all across the site. This packing of keywords artificially increases the relevance of the site, in turn, increasing the rank. It was started in April 2012 and after evolving over the years, in 2017 it became a part of Google’s core algorithm. Small companies who have managed with quality content and avoided these techniques gained a boost. So, what triggers the algorithm? And if you were affected, how to recover from Google’s Penguin update? Let’s find out.

How Google’s Penguin update algorithm is triggered?

Google’s Penguin update is triggered when site builders use Link Schemes and Keywords Stuffing.

  1. Link schemes works in the process where they have low-quality site are acquired for artificial reputation. Fake comments, Spam on internet forums was a part of this link scheming process. This linking scheme helped them gain more traffic and increased the rankings of the site which used this influence even if the quality of the pointing site was not related.
  2. Keyword Stuffing involved populating and packing the keywords across the site to increase the relevance. This stuffing once again falsely increases the ranking as Google finds the site to have a higher relevance.
  3. Penguin filter is a part of the algorithm which deindexes your site. This blocks all traffic to your site. It can also be a manual penalty if one of the links pointing towards your site was uninvited and was reported as spam.

 

How to recover if your website is affected by Google’s Penguin update?

Check if you really are affected by the penguin update or just a manual penalty first. If it is the Penguin update, optimize the following things.

  1. Identify and markdown the low-quality links pointing to the site. If they are not relevant, remove the unwanted links.
  2. Optimize the content with a good 15/200 ratio of keywords to content and remove unwanted stuffing of keywords.
  3. Perform a content audit to deliver good quality content.
  4. Allow Google to recrawl and reindex you content post optimization. Make necessary changes and make sure to not break Google’s rule. This is the least needed to not get a ban on your SERP.

About My Hometown

I am from Beijing, China, a city that has more than 3000 years of history.I am a proud of being born and raised in Beijing. It’s a massive city with plenty of great things to do. There are six Unesco World Heritage Sites in this city alone. All of them have been established more than a thousand of years ago. It’s also a city that never sleeps, there are all different kinds of bars, cafés, night clubs, live shows which keep me busy every day and night.

One thing I miss the most about Beijing is the food.  I can find great food from all over the nation or even from all over the world in this one city.

I love that Beijing has different faces. In winter, the lakes freeze as icy winds whip south from beyond the Great Wall, carrying with them the echo of Manchu rule. Come summer, Beijing is all rolled-up t-shirts, icy beers and street-side lamb skewers. There are many words to describe it: filthy, beautiful, decadent, bustling, chaotic, idle, lovable.

From sprawling imperial gardens to cramped ‘hutong’ alleyways, Beijing pulses with vitality and contradiction.
