Are these two sentences correct?
1- If you follow the guidelines, Google promotes your website in its top search results; otherwise, it throws your website far away from the first page in its search results.
2- we will inform you a few things that Google likes and their implementation will help you get a favor from Google.
Mr. Neidhardt is just plain wrong on the first sentence.
"If you follow the guidelines" is an introductory adverbial clause and is properly followed by a comma
"Google promotes your website in its top search results" is an independent clause
"it throws your website far away from the first page in its search results" is a second independent clause
Since you are not joining these sentences with a Coordinating Conjunction, but with a Conjunctive Adverb, you must use a semicolon in front of the CA as you originally had it (the punctuation was correct.) Google "Conjunctive Adverb" and investigate how it is punctuated when used to join two independent clauses.
