thank you for your posts.
tedster - no , they are getting around few hundreds unique per day, 150 direct, and the other coming from referrer links + google . 70% of traffic from google coming from various variation of our brand name and only 30% from long tail. the traffic is stable for the last 4-5 month , the problem is that traffic from google isn't growing !
regards our network , i am not sure that everybody understand what we are trying to do , and why from my opinion it's not spam , and should mark up as spam on google .
let me give you example lets say that i am have the domain stocks.com , and i am building there very big and quality portal about stocks . on the second hand i have 1000 websites about specific stocks , for example
ect ect ..
and on each on of them i am building very good site that give daily unique analyze about the specific stock, and off course i give quotes&charts of the specific stock and any other valuable information.
and on the footer, that is well designed i am putting nice space with the last 3 interesting articles on stocks.com , and writing there "for more information about stocks go to stocks.com "
beside the 1000+ links from the "stocks mini sites" the stocks.com is getting thousands of links from other sites that getting daily rss and give natural links back....
is it going to tag as spam on google ?
