I just signed up for this system and I would like to make sure that it will benefit my site rather than harm it...
I did a little research - just to make sure before I get in over my head... When I searched on Altavista for "url:searchengineworld.com" I couldn't find any evidence that the site is hosting any buddylinks pages (please forgive me if I'm wrong.)
Why is this? Is there much risk involved in hosting these pages? How many of you who are currently taking part in the program - were affected by the Altavista ban?
>How many of you who are currently taking part in the program
We currently have 600 sites in the program with 500 validated participants.
>were affected by the Altavista ban?
If you are banned on Alta, that is no problem, you can still join.
So, no-one has gotten "caught" or "penalized" for using a program such as this? (As you can see - I'm thinking about the AV ban - my sites were not affected and I want it to stay that way - I was wondering if anyone noticed a connection...)
Yours? That is ok, you can still join, it is not a prerequist.
Or something else? This site isn't banned - never has been.
I'd guess 90 of the sites in the Buddy Links program are though. Many you'd never expect. I can certainly see why people are so upset over Alta.
