>What bothers me is Alta's "similar page" nuking system
Me too, bates. And who knows when the nuking will become more widespread.
The other lady jumped on her project after reading about the value of link popularity in an article about Google. Just as well she's the one that did it, because I would NOT have included everyone, and she will - I would not have gone that route.
I've put my people on a monthly hosting and maintenance package, so I'll be selective and careful and do it over time - up to a point.
The similar page thing is what has me concerned over what they're doing, but it's not my business and as hard as it is for me to do, I'll keep my mouth shut. :)
How I do my own pages is, and I want to avoid any possible appearance of duplication. That's why I'm asking, I want to make doubly sure. I'd rather err on the side of caution.
>the pages have ranked #1 and #2
bates, are you talking about the actual links pages or the sites?
