Stop the Junk Links

Stop the Junk Links, Love Google

Today Google released an update to it’s algorithm that targeted junk links such as forum profiles and comment spam. Many people that sell services aimed at forum profiles and high pr comments are really fighting this, but the proof is there.  Check any major webmaster forum and you’ll see plenty of threads discussing the latest “Google Dance”.

A Google Dance usually refers to Google’s algorithmic changes which happen on a semi-regular frequency.  Basically, a lot of people see changes.  This one is a little different. There are more posts about lost rankings on the forums that delve into the darker arts such as xrumer, custom posters, scrapebox, and about 10 other “black hat” tools.

What can be done if I’ve lost rankings? If you’re serious, hire a link building service that can prove they still have rankings.  In fact, ask if your current link builder has seen an increase today.  No?  Maybe what they’re doing isn’t working well.

Here’s proof that I know what I’m doing.  Screenshots are taken today.

    definitely bad news for people trying to get their hard work noticed in Google. I must say, though, I’m not a fan of comment spam. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t mind relevant comments where people also leave their link. But some unscrupulous spammers must know their gibberish won’t make it past moderation most of the time and when it does – google reacts and ruins this type of SEO for everyone else.

    I totally agree with Jennifer I hate when I am on an article and reading comments and then half the wall is spammed with random off the wall topics. It isn’t benefiting anyone and I wouldn’t want people to be annoyed, how is that good business? Its good that your doing so well, maybe make more posts about how you are continuing to be so successful so that others can learn from you!

    I think I’m going to have to bite the bullet and hire a link building service. Me and my husband have done a half way decent job but we’re not pros. Thanks for the advice.
