Just want to let you guys know that when posts are made by people who sign up solely to place outbound links to sites, the posts will be deleted.

If they start threads to do the same, the threads will be deleted, along with any responses from you guys.

Im not talking about legitimate links to stuff from members who want to promote something, im talking about the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) web guys who seem to sign up now and then just to make one post so google finds it etc. And they make the same post or similar on as many sites as they can get onto.

:cool:

I thought that's what was done anyway, novum - even if we had "played" with the poster along the way. :D

Yeah i just wanted to explain why usernames post was gone. :D

It was funny though, I thought about leaving it.

And just editing out the spammers outbound link of course, rendering his efforts useless. :chuckle:

haha I thought it was a very apt SEO attempt however unintentional.

Are these guys doing the niche thing/online marketing? I thought Google all but killed that off with the last engine update ie the sites have to be really relevant content heavy for them to be high up.

They are creating inbound links to sites, inbound links will always boost a site, regardless of content. All else being equal of course.

What im saying is...

Good content + more inbound links will outrank the same good content with less inbound links.

And poor/less content + more inbound links will outrank the same poor/less content with less inbound links.

Yes google are always updating their algorithms to make 'manipulations' less and less effective but inbound links still give some google juice all else being equal.

So these SEO guys will go onto as many sites as possible in a days work and link back to said site. They dont care about getting people to go to the site, thats not what they are doing or why they are putting the links on here (im sure you are aware of this username, sounds like you know the deal, im just mentioning it for others)

they just want google and other engines to find the link.

No thats someone else. :chuckle:

Didnt you read my post :spank: The SEO guys arent trying to directly entice anyone to the site via these kinds of posts, other than google bots. :chuckle:

The win for them is when the site appears and ranks high in searches on search engine results when real people are actually searching for the relevant products with the relevant keywords.

The posts and links put up here make the sites rank higher when real people do searches on google.

We are just being used as a mule. :hahano:

I briefly flirted with the idea once, just around the time of a google update so their was a lot of negativity, decided too much hassle.

Mrs Username and I have a dream of buying some land mortgage free in a decade or so. We're always on the look out for minimal time ways of acheiving the dream

Yes google algorithm changes can make or break a site.

Some peoples traffic and hence sales can all but cease to exist when google shuffles things around, thats where the negativity comes from, its make or break for some people who sell online.

Ive read about people whos sites ranked high in searches and they were doing well with online sales, only for it to all come crashing down when google changes things and their site no longer comes up for said product in the results.
