Matt Cutts We’ve done a good job of ignoring boilerplate, site wide links.In the last few months, we’ve been trying to make the point that not only is link buying like that not doing any good, we’re turning the dial up to let people know that certain link spam techniques are a waste of money.
I'm starting to wonder if ignoring sitewide links from satellite sites is what has affected my main site. If that is the case I may need to find ways to vary the links and find which areas of templates they are ignoring. If it is the footer for example I'd like to know how they are identifying it. If I call the div something other than footer would that help? I can feel an experiment comming on.
