Someone less tactful would say: "your spammy stategy is not going to get you very far"
saying it doesn't make it true! FYI creating a network of 3,000 sites to link back to your main site for 'editorial' reasons is not whiter than white!
It sounds to me like your whole plan was built for Google rankings rather than to serve visitors
And who does not work for Google rankings?
People built sites with one purpose i.e. Business = profit maximization & this can be done only when your site is on top rankings in Google. So basically whoever is launching a website for doing business, WILL work for Google Rankings...
All websites are catering visitors need in one way or other . If you don't like a website,t hat doesn't mean that no one like that website.
Criticizing people, & doing nothing yourself, is becoming a new craze in SEO field. Show me your websites that are built for USERS and not for GOOGLE RANKINGS and then we will talk...
