Get rid of the dependency on links. Everyone and their pets knows how to link spam these days. But, oh my would that create a massive uproar with webmasters. Massive!
Google is moving away from a dependency on links, they're replacing link dependency with algorithms like "too many ads", "thin content", "value added", etc.
Think about that - they're turning what was decentralized representative voting into centralized authoritarian voting (i.e. you don't rank unless Google likes your content, and no one is above Google).
Instead of fixing the voting process and making sure it isn't rigged, they have imposed marital law.
