The latest videos about Penguin goes live and people are in a panic over advertorials, sig links in forums, etc.
I'm really getting concerned when one company is dictating how sites must be done and millions of webmasters collectively jump and do their bidding immediately.
Sorry people, but this is how things get out of control when you give them that power and I've been preaching the message but nobody listens.
It all started when they created rel=nofollow and everyone implemented it.
That was the first mistake, we all should've ignored them right then and there.
Then they did the next thing, and the next, and suddenly Google is dictating how sites should be run and if they say no sig links every forum owner on the planet is trying to figure out how to filter those out of their sites and blogs.
No backbone, millions of webmasters and not a spine among them.
I watch the news come out today and everyone jumps. I'm surprised the earth didn't shift in it's axis but maybe thee aren't that many webmasters to make that big of an impact.
Sad. Really sad.
