Not that I would ever actually keep score..(and if I was Matt would still be winning

Yesterday I posted reinclusion request indigo clothing

Today I have to issues an apology to Google… SORRY !

Matt Cutts Said :

and add to the list of Questions : DID YOU SELL LINKS IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS !

Re-examine your assumptions? E.g. http://web.archive.org/web/20070817163057/http://www.indigoclothing.com/blog/ is a link that shows when they were selling links. Later versions of their site were selling even more links, e.g. "sexy underwear" links.

Google has been very clear about how we feel about selling/buying links. If indigoclothing.com has dropped their text link ads and remove the links that they sold, they could do a reconsideration request. According to the data I looked at, the site has never done a reconsideration request.

And yes he is Bang on the Money, and has I said SES NYC and say again Buying and Selling links is just not worth the risk !
