Google Loves Transparent Links & Hit Counter Spam - click to read post
From the post:
So, in conclusion here is what is wrong with this linking and ranking picture:
- Google is giving top ranking to IdealPaydayLoans.com, a site which is using hit counter links and transparent link spam to build its backlinks.
- Google should not be doing this and their quality engineering team should be able to pick up on such an unethical linking method for such a high dollar and competitive term. I hope that Matt Cutts and Adam Lasnik can offer their thoughts on the matter and how Google treats such linking techniques.
I wonder if Google used their on spam reporting form to blow the whistle on their company?
