Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
There are already dozens of meaningful question about your broken model and you didn't even care to answer ..
The only thing that bothers me is how much it encourages kool-aid drinking instead of building a valuable web resource.
See above about pyramid schemes. It's a terrific idea-- if you're at the top of the pyramid.
You cannot "allow" (or disallow) publication of a hyperlink on a website you do not control.
You are free to monetise your own content if you want.
But you have zero control over mine.
Which question is troubling you, Matrix?
You are monetising your site by linking to my resource.
I have plenty of control over the link you have to my website.
what does that do to your link?
I suspect that it would be seen as gaming the system
The first one to send me such a message: I'll happily report the extortion attempt not only to google's abuse dept...
I find it strange that people are coming out so strongly against this idea.
This thread having crossed 100 posts just makes one thing clear
I don't doubt that he can probably find quite a few gullible webmasters who will fall for the scheme in the short term.
if someone has a monopoly of some kind for a certain dataset
You still thinking Google when you say "damage your business"
I have come up with a idea of charging the websites that link to my websites $5 each for the privilege...
or I will threaten to disavow their links!
For saving $5 you want to take a chance that a authority site... disavows your link?
that maybe enough to convince the website owner to send me a token amount of $5
Many websites are owned by businesses, big and small
disavow links will probably not harm their websites anyway...but who knows
Not everyone is link-obsessed.
