Scholars and scientists do not conduct their research with the goal of being cited by another paper their goals (assumedly honorable) are to contribute to the research in that space and shed more light on a possible answer to a persistent question or problem. In sum, their goals are to contribute value and advance knowledge. The same should go for any marketing strategy: Develop and market contentfor the benefit of and value to your readers, not for the possible backlinks. The objective is not to make your links appear natural, the objective is that your links are natural. Matt Cutts, former head of webspam at Google If backlinksare like votes ,then it follows that link spam couldbe likened to ballot stuffing, and followed advertisements and affiliate links likened to vote buying. When domains participate in these practices to influence their positions within organic search results, they are effectively influencing the governing bodys (aka Googles) understanding of who the people voted forand in turn, rigging the election. In the real world,these actionscan have serious consequences. In the SEO world, the same is true sites are penalized (aka put in Google Jail) and demoted in rank, effectively pushing them out of their positions of influence. With penalization having the potential to impact thousands, if not millions of dollars in revenue, fixatingon backlinks as a marketing strategy is a huge gamble for a lot of big-namesites.

A lot of us are guilty of this, including myself. In the last few years, however, with the clarifications Google has madein its QualityGuidelines (Yes, Link Schemes provides clarity, if you know how to read between the lines), those who get this industry have recognized what it is Google wants and expects from their sites: a solid user experience, and valuable, authoritative information.

Cadre On Cadre, the platform looks like an e-commerce store - just with price tags ranging between $50 million and $250 million. When you click on one of the buildings, you're taken to a beautiful landing page full of stats and information that's presented like a baseball card, with a transaction overview, executive summary, the purchase price, how much equity is available, a dynamic FAQ section and more. For sellers, Cadre is an opportunity to get a deal done relatively quickly and cheaply - if your property is accepted (only about 1% of everything Cadre's team vets gets listed on the platform). Cadre has less overhead than many funds, and thus Cadre says it can charge sellers about 50% less in fees. Cadre "The typical fee model is, there's an element of a double promote, or a 'carry,' like 2 and 20, that a larger fund would charge," Williams explained. "Then there's carry that an operator would charge. At Cadre we're basically eliminating the 2 and 20 that happens at the fund level." "2 and 20" means funds typically charge investors 2% in annual fees and then 20% of any profits in exchange for access to the deals and management of their assets. Once you've found an appealing Cadre property, the investing process is quick. Cadre asks how much money you'd like to invest, and the member plugs in an amount ranging from $500,000 to tens of millions.
