Top Ten Strategies For Dealing With Poisoned Inbound Links
Any chance you could change that title on the main page? It gives the impression that there is something dangerous about some links. Links are not of themselves "bad" or "poisonous". Google has deemed them so. Remember the Cold War?
"If someone we think is a traitor mentions your name, we will arrest you."
"If a site that does not agree with our ethics mentions you, we will penalise your site."
Heck, you could take Google's mentality right back to "she's a witch! no she's a witch!" if you like.
I think the real question here is, how do we get Google to stop telling us any links are "bad" for our sites and just ignore poor quality links? Should we all buy $9.99 directory submissions for our competitors? Should we all post our competitors websites on forums asking for link exchanges? For $10 I can get 1000 blog comment links pointing to my competitor!
How do we make this situation impossible for Google to keep a grip on? Whoever is with me, please PM me your URl and I'll get to work on damaging your website until Google finally wakes up and stops forcing decent hard-working webmasters to resort to Adwords ...
... wait a minute ... I think I've just ... no, surely not?
