I just received an email from Google saying that this blog currently appears to be in violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. And my Pagerank went down from 2 to 0. If you are experiencing this too, you don’t have to remove all your links. Just put an attribute rel=”nofollow” to your unnatural links only, links that are not related to your site and/or links that are not healthy for your site.
What are the unnatural links?
Unnatural links are links that you put on your website(because of the advertising/selling links purposes) that are not related to your niche.
E.G. If you’re blog’s niche is marketing and business and you’re linking a fashion blog to one of your posts then this fashion blog link is unnatural. You should put an attribute rel=”nofollow” on these links or remove them.
But you can’t do it manually especially if you have hundreds of unrelated posts. Good thing I found this plugin Nofollowr. This plugin will help you to put an attribute nofollow to your unnatural links automatically by just 1 click.
How to use NoFollowr Plugin?
- Download the Nofollowr Plugin to your blog.
- Install and Activate.
- Once activated, go to your categories page.
- Find the categories that are not related to your site and view their posts.
- Now you can see the posts that are not related and that needs to be changed or removed.
- Go to that specific post and you will see a green check icon beside your link, meaning that the link is currently “follow”.
- To make it “nofollow”, just click the check icon and it will automatically change the link from follow to nofollow link. Just easy as that!
- Nofollow links are indicated by a red/stop icon. You can also do it vice versa. To make nofollow links follow, just click the red icon and the attribute nofollow will automatically be removed.
- Don’t worry, the icons are only visible to the admins of the blog.
After you have done changing these follow links, submit a reconsideration request to Google. I’m sure there won’t be any problem if you make these links nofollow because these advertised websites are also checking their backlinks and contacting every unrelated blog that links to their sites. So, it’s a win-win situation. Good luck changing those follow links to unfollow!
NOTE: You don’t just remove links or change links to nofollow but you must also add more high quality articles that are related to your niche. You have to maintain at least 7:3 or 8:2 ratio in order to have a balance and healthy site/blog.

Marketing in the internet age has become complex with dynamic analytical approaches. One sector of internet marketing that has grown exponentially in the last few years is social media marketing. Social media marketing capitalizes on the amount of personal data and communications between people over specific websites to market brands. For example, one of the top social media platforms, Facebook, has its own marketing approach with specialists trained in Facebook marketing. People may still be wondering how marketing teams use social media to help with brand campaigns. Much of this is dependent on the services provided by a social media marketing team. One service is analytics.
Using programming that accesses a social media account, like a brand’s Facebook or Twitter account, the social media marketing team can see how effective the social media page is getting brand awareness to potential consumers. With detailed reports, the social media team can develop a battle strategy to create more effective campaigns. A second service from many of these companies is content creation. Content creation would come in the form of major posts done by the brand social media account. Social media marketing teams can not only formulate appropriate posts, but follow how well the posts are being received, if the posts are part of major communication trends on social media, and what other competitors are saying on the same topics.
A third service provided by these social media companies may include advertisements. Depending on the social media platform, advertisements can be seen as banner ads or can come in the form of a post with the specific advertisement as the post. Social media marketing teams try to formulate concise advertisements to targeted audiences. Again, these advertisements have their own analytical tools to them, helping the social media team analyze the advertisement’s effectiveness. Brands need to be able to capitalize on the large market share and reach that can come from social media. With the help of a social media team, the brand can execute a better marketing strategy to get their brand awareness out there.

Phlebotomists are trained to obtain blood samples from patients through venipuncture or microtechniques. They are also responsible for preparing the equipment necessary for obtaining blood samples, transporting samples and recording information about patients and donors. They must also be able to talk to their patients and donors to ease their fear and be able to monitor vital signs.
Phlebotomists are medical professionals, and like most medical professionals phlebotomists should receive certification if they want to find employment. There are certification programs available from technical colleges throughout the country, but many of these programs do not include a practical phase of the certification exam. This is why it pays to be certified through the American Society of Phlebotomy Technicians, or the ASPT.
With ASPT certification, you can be sure that you are receiving the training necessary to work effective as a phlebotomist. This includes six hours of continuing education each year, although some agencies may require more. This may sound daunting for some people, but the results are well worth your time. Phlebotomists are in very high demand, and receiving cerfication from The ASPT may be just the thing to give you an edge that you need in your job search.
