- To fast link velocity could be a trigger, too, yet I am not sure about how to dis tangle the effects from anchor text optimization and building too many links too fast.
I really have to ask about this.
Matt Cutts has said hat links in to your site can't hurt you. I tend to believe him, because otherwise, what would stop me from getting all sorts of links to my competitors and having them incur a "fast link velocity trigger?"
It seems to me that the WORST that could happen is that google would see lots of links being added in a short time and say, ok, from here on out, any NEW links gained in the next three months (or whatever time period) would only get 50% (or whatever percentage) value.
But I couldn't see them going back and changing the value of previously acquired links automatically.
Am I wrong here?
