Internet Central Core (ICC)
What is it?

 9:26 pm on Nov 19, 2002 (gmt 0)

I was told by someone to learn what the "Internet Central Core" was or ICC. I did a search for it in the search form and came back with nothing.

Anyone have any idea as to what this is?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld. [webmasterworld.com]
Could it be a buzzword I missed from spamville?

I've not heard of it, either. I'll pose the Dublin Core [dublincore.org] as a possible answer, though I doubt that's it since your term sounds quite specific.

The only thing Google can find for "Internet Central Core" is a huge pdf from the New York City comptroller's office, including some material about computer system security...
Hackers can gain access through a variety of paths, including dial in, the Internet, central core equipment, or unattended workstations.

Not exactly what you're looking for. Sounds like you might be on a wild goose chase.

That's what I thought about the wild goose chase. I saw it on a post on one of these webmaster boards. That's why I asked it here because it sounded fishy to me...

This is the exact post

<ed. sorry... no exact quotes from other forums. copyright & all that... thanks!>
<the post suggested that getting a link from the "ICC" or "Internet Central Core" could give your site more of a ranking boost than a link from a regular site>

There is no such thing or is made up.

The general idea is somewhat correct.

Links from well established, "major" sites will contribute more of a ranking boost to your site with many search engines...

...but AFAIK, there is no official "Central Core" sites to get links from, unless that's a slang term used on that particular board to denote an established, high-ranking site.

So it is right from Spamville. Smells funny for a link farm. ;)

Or they can be talking about the 'core' directories and search engines we submit to, including Yahoo and ODP I suppose.
