Default SEO For Multiple Product Pages

Hi,


I have a domain with 16products and URL structure for that pages are like


www.domain.com/product1
www.domain.com/product2
www.domain.com/product3........................


Now my question how to promote my sites using link building because if i do daily 40 submissions for each product(suppose i do for 3 products) then total submissions for the day will be 120.


I think this may become over promotion because indirectly we are promoting home page only.


Do you think this will penalize my site or shall i continue doing.


One more question is which format is better for domain i.e.,


www.domain.com/product1 (or) www.product1.com




Please let me know....


Thanking U in Advance......................

It's better to have a single domain with individual product pages than to place each product page on a separate domain. Easier administration.

From the way you word the question, it sounds as though you think "link building" and "directory submission" are the same thing. They are not.

There are very, very few directories that would be considered high enough quality to have any effect on Google rankings.

Submit to as many directories as you want, as often as you want. It will have pretty much zero effect on your search optimization. Nowadays, you have to work a lot harder than just filling out a few directory submission forms to get good links.

Also be much easier to promote a signal site and have the ranking highly than lots of site lost in the rankings

What i mean is suppose if we do 40 submissions for each product and for 3 products total submissions will be 120 submissions.

120 submissions for 3 products but indirectly we are promoting the home page. So, whether google will consider it as over promotion or not.

Link building here means all the tasks such as Directory Submissions, Social Bookmarking, Classified Ads etc.,

I would like to suggest you to do every thing not only dir submission you need to do blog posting, guest blog posting, commenting, article posting, active presence on social media/networking sites, forum posting. But work on only relevant with good PR sites. No need to generate links blindly. I think you must do classified posting, upload your products images into sites like flicker and Picasa. Make a PPT for your product and distribute online

You're going to have to do a LOT more than that before you even make it on to Google's radar, much less have to worry about "over promotion."

Honestly, you've barely even scratched the surface of what it takes to effectively market a web site. Anything you can do for free in less than 5 minutes of time isn't going to be all that effective.

Here's an old rule of thumb I've found to be 100% true, 100% of the time.

There's fast. There's cheap. And there's good. The trouble is, you only get to choose two.
So far, everything you've mentioned doing is fast and cheap. Guess which one that leaves out?

Hi,

no-one knows for sure what level of link building may decide is 'bad' - so as such I don't worry about it.

However, just the fact that you thinking about building 120 links a day and you worry about it, this probably means you should worry about it. Chances are even you think the links you are getting could be of less than 'good' quality.

If I was getting 120 links of good quality a day to my site I wouldn't worry at all. So, the thing to do is not to think about the number of links but where they are coming from.

IF the links are from places that people would LIKELY (or even possibly) do business with you from then that's fine; if it's a link for links sake, that is bad.

So, for example:

1/ A link in a list of 1000 with ramdom topics: how likely is it that you will get business through it?

2/ A link from a blog, around your topic, with 1000s of readers a week/month who see a good report on your service/or a good product review: how likely?

For me:
120 links a day from 2/ - no problem.
120 links a day from 1/ - problem

I know these are possibilities are the extreme ends of the link building spectrum, but should give you some idea of what I believe you need to think about.

You should work on all the possible aspects of SEO and SMO. Link building is just a one thing to follow, not the only one. Start working on social media sites too. They effect seo a lot these days.
