How Google is killing sites for buying or selling links
hypothetical I repeat this post is hypotheatrical !
lets say that 12 months ago a group of Googlers and anonymous friends sat down to discuss how they could kill link selling and buying, without causing death and destruction to normal sites, Obviously if Google started killing sites for buying links, then the bad people would just buy links for the competition, of course Google are smart enough to think of that they aren’t just in this for the short term fix.
So lets pretend the real option was to build teams of Link detectives that just collected data but never actioned it, just collected..
Then lets say they set up accounts at TLA, Linkworth, TLB Digitalpoint etc etc, how quick could you collect the the data covertly without people ever knowing what was coming.. because they just collected data but never actioned it.
Ok so they have the data what’s next well they need to spread fear, so what if they just fire a warning shot, say cull Pagerank but nothing else, more to deter than hurt, But what if the community mocked this ! nobody likes been mocked so what if they cross reference that with data in Webmastercentral and analytics and just killed your money words. what if they where allowed to say … move you down 6 places per infraction would that stop the the linking selling and buying.. of cousre they would be monitoring the link buying activities so buying links for competitors could be discounted for say at least 6 months …
on recent trip to SES London a Webmaster asked me if I trusted a certain Googler.. he then went on to tell me that the same googler told HIM the spam team where using webmastercentral and analytics, I wasn’t sure so I could not confirm or deny..
how long before you feel the pain..
All right. Where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right… and who is dead.
