Rank algorithm update from google weeded out a lot of good or bad websites,   the reason cited is that google wanted to provide more relevant results, on official google blog it is estimated 11.8% search results will be affected by this update, say it another way, almost 12% of google search results are useless or of low quality. They planned and started the update about one year ago, maybe that’s why some of my ranks dropped out of first 10 pages, the good thing is that those keywords promoted by content rich links are not affected, and a few of them even gained a few positions, it becomes clear that linking campaign the old way is the thing of past, probably due to link spamming sites being downgraded by google.

So what exactly is linking campaign the old way? a large percentage of SEO firms will do this,  they add your links to those linking websites without context, the content on those sites will never be updated, almost all of them are garbage, the name link spamming are just for these sites. The latest google update will definitely downgrade most if not all of these sites, any links on them will be affected too. 

Maybe a few examples will make it clear. In the very beginning, I didn’t know better, I started promote the keyword, cargo straps, of course with old way of link building, lately I figured that every site in the campaign had way too many links, and the worst thing is that those sites are linking sites only and had no content, not even crap content. I would give credit where credit is due, this linking strategy worked, finally the rank improved a lot,   the honeymoon lasted until google changed it’s mind. Something opposite happened to this keyword, chain pullers, most back links for this keyword are from articles and posts, with very few plain links, the rank for this keyword is making me real happy. Old and outdated linking campaign lost to content linking, what’s next? Actually this is all about content, as long as you dole out high quality content, not only people will love to read your stuff, so do the search engines. It’s never too late to build good blogs for business purpose, such as this interesting blog, sherri hill dresses , I build it as a hobby and kept adding good or mediocre content, now it can even rank the highly competitive keywords. Now you can see, creating quality content and blog marketing is what we have to do to get great result. Say you’re building your own bogging network, such as truck tie down, you will have the power to push any sites up in search engines.

Remember content is king, you just need to create content, get people to enjoy and share your stuff, promote your business with the content, your effort will reward you handsomely in the end. Whatever you do, you will need persistence and patience, you shouldn’t expect things to improve overnight, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, now all we have to do is to give our love for creating and sharing great content and not to worry about the ranking every day. Ezine is one of the best article directories out there, google will index a new article on ezine promptly, popular blogs will get your post indexed as soon as you post it, here I am going to show you an article in article directory or on a blog, say this one, ratchet straps , nice writing, good content, published on popular site, this article serves it’s purpose well.

We’re not finished yet, please remeber, the social media is the must have channel for your marketing effort. For wordpress blogs, I recommend twitter tools, get a twitter account and API keys, link your blog to twitter, you should choose to post a tweet for every new post, it’s real easy and useful, it’s a big loss if you don’t use this tool.

Truck tie down is about quite some different things to different people, we will talk about trailer tie down in this article, more precisely, we will talk about flat beds only, probably you’ve already seen them on the highway or truck stop.

When the jobs come your way, odds are you are not going to decide what kind of stuff will be put on your truck, the only thing you can do is to prepare for all the options , it’s almost always not for you to decide what load will be on your vehicle . When it comes to flatbed truck , the first thing comes up will be the truck winches, you can see those flatbeds with truck winches at one side on the highway all the time, with those winches it’s easy for the driver to tie down loads with just winch straps with the help of winch bar .

Usually portable winch and winch strap are most popular tie down devices for flat beds . When you work with truck winches and winch straps, there is one thing you can’t live without: winch bars, these steel bars are definitely needed for your job, so get one if you don’t already have one.

Some trailers come with winches installed, not all trailers have winches installed. When the flat bed have the winches installed, we can use winch tie down straps to tie down articles on the trailer , usually we tie down steel coils, concrete pipes, skids, anything that not too heavy for the the straps’ working load limit. Winch straps usually come with flat hooks, because we usually hook the straps on the edge of the trailer, of course the double J hook can be used too. For most flatbeds there are 2” and 4” truck winches , but winch straps have width of 2”, 3” and 4”, it’s obvious you can put 3” winch straps in 4” winches, when we look at the length of the winch strap, the range is pretty wide for regular use, from around 20 feet to more than 60 feet, 27′ and 30′ being the most common length available.

OK, now let’s look at ratchet straps which are the most popular tie down devices for all kinds of trucks or hauling  businesses. Usually the ratchet straps are assemblies of ratchet buckles and nylon or polyester webbing tie down strap, there are fixed end straps with ratchet buckles and loose end straps.

Ratchet straps are most selected tie down devices due to their capability , you can put them almost anywhere when it’s applicable. The ratchet straps may have flat hooks, double J hooks, chain anchors, cloth loops or just plain straps at both ends, probably some special made ratchets have some other funny ends, say, D ring? And it’s width can be 1” through 4”, length can be a few inches to more than 50 feet . The reason we say that ratchet straps are most popular tie down devices for most trucks can be found in this paragraph, even for flatbeds which use winch straps extensively may find ratchet straps attractive if there are no winches installed on the truck.

To buy these tie down straps, you have the choice between local stores and online stores . Depends on your available options , sometimes get them locally is more appropriate , sometimes online deals are much better. To help you make decision you need accurate and non altered information on the vendors, you can check out online forums, blogs and  opinion sites to figure all of these out before you go all in.
