Graywolf has an excellent post on his blog about natural linking. How true this is, I am seeing sites ranked with complete garbage links. Obscure social media sites that are nothing but link farms, $99 link wheels, blah blah. Google needs to address linking again. What I see now with caffeine is you put up some garbage, throw some even more garbage links at it and you will beat the sites that rank naturally and deserve to be there overnight. I am confident knowing Google’s commitment to quality that this is an unintended consquence of them being so busy with some big stuff going on. I see very positive changes with the Mayday update but its time for Google to get their ‘find the total crap influenceing the results’ hats back on and fix this.
So Graywolf just for all your hard work here is a natural link to your great article. I listened to Google and I failed.
