Matt Cutts : link buying
ok lets have fun, if link buying is so bad, ban Yahoo I dare you .. search google for autos wow yahoo is number 1.. why because they purchased text links.
But does it make it wrong, Hell no. Are yahoo trying to trick the SE’s into ranking them number 1 for autos.. hang on they are a SE, Go figure, 1 SE saying buying links is bad and another SE is buying links . lol wonder where the confusion is hehe.
Matt if I spend 10,000 a month on textlinks you better believe that those links are a vote of confidence 10,000usd votes of confidence, Just the same as me buying Adwords, I want my text message out there. and if i have to spend 20,000usd a month to rank for POKER, it’s still better than hiding text links imo
And who will you hurt, the site selling or the sites buying .. we both know that’s a double edged sword..
Question : which link did I buy for my site or for my competitors site ?
Hint : But it’s so simple. All I have to do is derive it from what I know of you. Are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet or his enemy’s? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool; you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.
