Theres some seriously good comments in here in response to this. I am surprised at how "naturally" my post has been taken on-board - this shows me that I am / was a bit behind the times when it came to link spam.
Its as though you guys are saying - yeah - we know its fine.
Dam and Ive been scared about some of my domains after buying links and doing the profile and blog spam. Nothing to worry about after all.......
Or - is there? Above it seems the human review topic crops up a few times. Well - I suppose its true.... it could be something to worry about.
Then again - what happens when the best site there is embarks on link spam? Google must want to retain the best site in the top ten across the board (so sites not site).
They must want to hit it down due to link spam - but boost it up as its great. A quandry for them.
I look at these penalties issued against big companies over the years (Like BMW) as just a way to strike fear into us smaller guys. Showing us what can happen - like the teacher in the classroom cracking down by picking on the biggest guy.
I dont trust google as you know - but now I see them in an even worse light.
That said - I think the next 6 months are going to be some very happy spamming days for me as I buy up all the latest spamming tools :)
