SEO Tips For Limiting Control and Go Viral on Internet
1. Choose a Niche and Stick to it
Choosing a niche for the website will significantly decrease the number of blocks (too many clicks) between the user and the information that he is looking for.
You will simplify the work for Googlebot (Google’s Crawler). This is good. Because Googleboot will include the website in a niche and deliver fast the website as an information for the people looking for that information. And this is perfect. Exactly what you want.

2. Allow Outside Contribution to Website Content
Allow other people to contribute. Exceed the limits and allow unknown writers to publish their writings on the website. Limit control! Limit the control you have over the entire content of the website.
Wow SEO Tip: Create a section on the website called Write for Us, and allow writers from all over the world to publish content on the website, with relevant do-follow links.
In the section Write for Us you set the format of the content. You publish the articles with relevant do-follow links. Yes, links to other websites. Yes, you publish the links. Yes, do-follow. Yes I know, you have read that this is against SEO, but this is actually good for SEO.
Note that I said “relevant” links, meaning links relevant to your niche. Allow writers to specify that they are the authors of the article and allow them to put a Biography about their work (with do-follow links to their work).
Serious SEO Tip: All links on the website should always be do-follow links. Let’s call it the “always do-follow rule”.
What is do-follow and Why the “always do-follow rule”?
Do-follow is the default state of a link. It tells the world (Google’s Crawler Googlebot) that there is SEO value in that link. “Value in that link” means, because you added that link on the website, then that link has more power on Internet (the World Wide Web). To have power on internet, means to rank better in search results.
Please Just Do It SEO Tip: You want to add power to links relevant to your niche. You want to add power to the competitors. You want the competitors to rank better than they do now.
Some people change the code of the default state do-follow into nofollow and control Googlebot too much. Nofollow state is not called for nothing “nofollow links without SEO value”. You never want to publish on the website something without SEO value. You never want to tell (never, ever) to Googlebot that you have a link on the website without SEO value. What kind of website are you? A serious website would publish only value. Why would you ever publish on the website a link that does not have value?
Ok, let me explain in simple words. Squiddy, Google’s Crawler caled Googlebot , comes to the website to have a look. He is told what to do. Then he is told more what to do. Then he is specifically told what to do. They Squiddy gets upset. Because he feels controlled too much. Because Squiddy is smart and he likes to show you how smart he is and when you control the process to much he gets disturbed. Stop controlling so much the Google Crawler. Again, limiting control makes you go viral.
Why is important to have a good relationship with Squiddy? Sorry, Googlebot. Return to Go Viral on Internet SEO Secrets and be amazed by the answer. Short answer: it is very important.
3. Publish Content About The Competition
Wow, yes, write it. Publish it. And yes, with links. What did I tell you above? Always do-follow, meaning leave the default state of that link as it is. Do not change the code. Yes, do nothing. Exactly, do nothing.
Because you stick to a niche, you can benefit from the power of the competition.
Stop ignoring the competition means limiting control.
“Stop ignoring the competition” means to make the switch from looking at the competition to writing and publishing about the competition.
Hmmm SEO Tip: Write about the resources of the competition that the users from your niche might find useful.
Make an article with resources from the competition. Add resources from 10 to 15 competitors in your niche. Ask people to contribute to the content and send you more related resources (from the competition you never knew you have).
What will happen?
Visitors will remember the centralization of resources that you did. Will think that someone else looked and validated those resources. Will trust the content. Will come back first to your article. The resources are all put together and
it’s simpler for users to find what they want. You just created content (sorry resource) that brings you constant traffic, every month. Go to What To Look In Niche Competition For SEO Purposes to go deeper in SEO magic.
