All the time, use it myself thank you very much. Works great. And remember, that doesn't invalidate the content or usefullness of the site that is ranking.
Amen! Preach on!
I'd rather see 10 quality sites in the top 10 ranking by low quality methods, than 10 low quality sites ranking by quality methods. If the content is useful then laying a foundation with some links from your own sites/blogs is truly harmless.
What Google is showing just now, though, seems to be low quality pages with low quality ranking methods ... not sure why ... that would mean that people will end up clicking on the adverts that take up half the page and now look almost identical to the organic results. Surely Google doesn't want that?
