80 links in a day will surely show up as SPAM to Google.
Unless of course you are getting 80 links a day, every day for the next 6 months. Then it will look like you have high quality and popular site.
I am NO seo, but I do have common sense I hope, so unless you have actual evidence of either of the above, please (imo) do NOT mislead folks with 1 or both of the above statements.
Google showed the evidence in their patent, but sure, no one outside Google is going to easily demonstrate it with out a lot of time and some money.
As for common sense, I think it is obvious that a site with a large spike in link growth followed by no link growth at all could be easily perceived as undesirable for the serps but that a site with a steadily growing link count over the long term is going to be perceived as a legitimate site. Google has both the processing power and data to do such a datamining operation. They also have publicly stated the idea. Even if they are not doing it now, nothing stops them doing it next week or next year using data that could be years old.
Common sense says spread your link gains out steadily over the long term. If i'm wrong you lose very little, if you're wrong you lose any decent position in Google.
I just seldom look at older topics. Maybey I should rechange my profile before google got there?. I'm
afraid I'm a little late here..
However, I had never considered what might happen if you change your sig. Your 30,000 posts have been made over a long period, so the link pop for site A has grown over time (if indeed the links are all counted!); but now --poof!-- they all point to site B?!? Interesting...
--Nah, G is smart enough to know these things happen!
Like I sayed earlier the pages of that forum ara all indexed well,also are the links coming from it..
I double checked it using the profile links of somebody else at that forum in Google (you know link:www.domname.com ) and they all show up there..
But the others have build these links during quit a long time and I did it all at once..
I still feel like a gambler here, but without taking a risk now and then, life gets more exiting doesn't it..
Thanks to all,
and if there's more to tell I'll gladly read it here..
80 links is defintely spam, unless you're MSN and already get 1800 links a day :-)
