"...compounded by the fact that the supposedly bad links are normally on supposedly bad sites which may themselves be already banned or severely penalized hence no allotted crawl budget to speak of. It may take AGES for Google to re-read 100,000+ of pages of a site that only has 1000/day crawl budget (or less)."
Sure Google may think this is a good and healthy thing anyway since it gets webmasters to improve sites but does it really improve sites?JS, Google is a publicly traded US corporation that by law has to be concerned with one thing and one thing only: making money for its shareholders (a laughable concept, I know, given that they never paid dividend despite $50Bil+ in cash). You and I can be sure of only two things: 1. They are NOT interested in helping us to improve our businesses and 2. To hell with "organizing the world's information". The only thing that became easier to find in the last year is an Amazon listing.
does it really improve sites?
