Google says no to paid links
What do you think about this ?
Since we don't know what is meant by "paidlinks" more information is needed... Googles history has shown that certain big companys always somehow manage be exempt from the rules.
Maybe this action is directed against the webdirectories. As google put more weight on the inlinks people were smart enough for finding out how to help their sites among the changed circumstances. Now the web is full of directories. Not really bring traffic, but counted as backlink. I guess google want to liquidate the links made for robots not for web users.
I think you could be righ Bagi, as a matter of fact, if you apply for adsense account with a directory, Google will not approve your adsense account
I don't know what will be the final result if google penalize paid links. Maybe the webmaster forums will start opening hidden forums for link black market
Somehow I think sourcer read it wrong, I am not sure his assertion are correct.
What did I read wrong ? I mean... I just commented Matt's post.
You are actually right, I am the one who read this upside down I did not read M's blog before commenting on this post, after reading it I found out you are right.
I though it was the age old sell text link or now stuff you reawaken.
I did just that just a ago with my allskytv directory. Within 1 day they had approved my account. But i didn't add the code yet. Instead i added it to my travel site...
If this is aimed at directories what about yahoo directory and clush?
Did you say your Adsense account was approved via your directory? That is impressive.
I know two people who applied with a directory and were turned down, perhaps their directory was not high enough quality
Yes i applied not long ago it was approved within a day...
If they have to stop "paid link" they have to do it by improving their system, No way they can stop it being reported from people.
Some one suggested they remove PR from their tool bar and no one will bother about buying links any more.
Google created the monster that is pr would it hurt anyone if they abolished it?
