The Next Link Network Penalized By Google | Real SEO | Scoop.it
Google's head of search spam, Matt Cutts, publicly outed on Twitter another link network that Google has penalized.


@mattcutts Tweeted: "'Our installation code/software used to publish the sold links is not detectable by the search engine bots.' Au contraire!"

Nick's insight:

Seriously people, do you really think you can outsmart all those big brains at Google for long enough to be worth the risk?

Stop looking for the easy way. Success takes hard work - even on the internet!

Time is limited for building one's social authority. Re: the Tedster quote, small to medium-sized businesses - not just the big social sites - are employing robust content protection to defend against social spam. In fact, any site can leverage the same technology that high traffic social media sites use to limit fake registrations, block fake "likes", and filter out comment spam. This technology takes big data, applies machine-learning and essentially determines a user's trustworthiness online. The implications on rankings may not appear immediately but the impact is certainly near-term.
