I was going to start this blog post with a completely different approacth, something like; I haven’t had a good night sleep, ever since I received that email from Google Webmaster Tools. They told me that I’ve been cheating, even though I haven’t. They told me that my site has unnatural external links, but they’re as natural as they can be.
But, I’m messing with you. I’ve been sleeping like a baby. It’s not because I have some exciting news for you yet, but I’ll announce some news that’ll make you scream YEAH!! – soon.
The reason I’ve been sleeping like a baby, and that I haven’t been worried more than a few hours, is that I have been receiving help from a brilliant man. I admit that I was really worried when I received the email, and I had no idea what was happening. I was thinking about the past, and if I had done anything to cause Google to be upset with me, but I just couldn’t find a reason why.
What I did
I had to do something. But, I wasn’t sure exactly what . I was thinking about it for a few hours. I went to sleep without a solution, and that night, I didn’t sleep that well. But, the first thing in the morning, I started to write a blog post explaining my problem.
I have written about this before; blogging is about building relationships. Every time I have a problem, I write about it here on my blog, and in a few hours someone like you, comes up with a solution for me. That’s one of the reasons why I think I’ll always be blogging.
It didn’t take many hours, before three people had left a comment telling me to contact a specific person that they said could help me. That’s three of my loyal readers, letting me know about a person they trust. To me, that’s amazing.
I had seen his avatar before. I had never visited his website. Now, I’m his biggest fan. I contacted Mayura De Silva, only because three people I trust had told me to do so. I would have just contacted anyone, if I hadn’t received the tips. This is how trust works, and this is how online marketing works at its best. Focus on building relationships, do a great job, and you’ll have success.
Mayura has been brilliant in every way. He cleaned up my site, and he explained to me what was causing the problems with Google. He even contacted Google for me. I’m still waiting for Google to reconsider my site, after they applied the manual spam action. It might take a while, I don’t know. But, with Mayura on my team, I’m sure that I won’t have any problems with spam anymore.
To me, relationships are more important than ever. It might be because everything is going so fast, and that the world is more complex than ever. It’s more difficult to get attention, and it’s a competitive place to be. When I’m searching for a solution, no matter what topic I’m talking about, I’m always looking to my friends for help. I’m vulnerable alone, but together with my friends, I’m invincible.
