Buying Links or Selling Links
Ok this has got to be one of the most stupidest things google has ever tried to stop..
I mean Really who are they going to hurt, the site that sells them, the site that buys them or is it just some way to make sure people only use a googley product.
so is buy a link on http://directory.lycos.co.uk/Arts_Entertainment_and_Games/Arts/ to boast my search rankings a bad thing, I get a clean link with PR, and what about the link I got on Forbes. Surely it comes down to intent, and that’s one thing google can’t say. no matter how hard they try
lets look at some samples
reviewme if I buy 100 reviews from blogs what’s the intent “product awareness” or “search positioning” ( depends I guess if it’s client or competitor )
adbrite again lots of traffic cheap
you see Google is only one search engine and while Yahoo, MSN And Jeeves don’t like people buying links if they say nothing, maybe people will start to see google for what it is becoming. I wish sometimes Matt had his “Matt hat” on and Not his “Google Pr Hat”.. Ho Hum .. how many months is it till you leave Matt ? I hear you wife woke up and the coffee smell is really strong at the moment..
