Link Popularity and the Myth of the Guestbook Link

Written by Eric Ward - Link Mensch

Continued from page 1

The real question here is do search engines know about this scam yet, or do they count guestbook links as additional links for poplarity rankings? My hunch is that since guestbook links are not in any way an indication of content quality, then they do not matter at all.

If ANY search engine currently gives any credit or rankings impact for guestbook links, this impact is only becauserepparttar engine hasn't yet figured outrepparttar 119372 guestbook trick, and soon will. In fact, sincerepparttar 119373 majority of guestbooks pages haverepparttar 119374 word guestbook inrepparttar 119375 URL string, it would be absurdly easy forrepparttar 119376 search engines to simply ignore any link that appears at any URL withrepparttar 119377 letters guestbook in it.

And I'll bet you if they don't already ignore them they will soon.

My last point is more philosophical. Ifrepparttar 119378 reason you are seeking a link is because

a). The link can be obtained automatically or in bulk numbers and b). You are trying to inflate links for SEO purposes, thenrepparttar 119379 bottom line is it's all bullsh*t, and no matter ifrepparttar 119380 engines figure it out today or next month,repparttar 119381 tactic is based on a lie and shouldn't be done.

Until next time, I remain,
