There are some people in this forum who seem to leave comments very quickly, without thinking about the effect this might have on other people's sites, who are complete beginners. When I say beginners, I'm still a beginner after two years of learning SEO and stuff.
Now I'll give you an example. My site cheap stylus was on the first page of Google for that search, (not that it was a popular search as I found out), but I got some advice to try blasting out profile links using software, and in particular, a Fiverr gig that they thought was going to be great.
It wasn't just one person, it was many people who kept going on about scrapebox, and blasting out spam, and because of that, my new site is history.
I will probably never get it back to where it was, but I don't care so much about that one, it's just the fact that if you're going to mention grey hat SEO on this forum, it should always, always be accompanied with a quick comment about the huge risk that this brings with it. Not that it works anymore anyway.
I asked for advice on my other site, Professional Social Promotion, and somebody quickly said I should change the title, but the problem with that, is
I would then have to go back and change the percentage of the link text that was coming from my back links to 60% Social Promotion, and 40% other stuff, and if you change the link text all at once, it looks like spam, and Google hurts you, so basically I have gotten some really bad advice from this forum, which has hurt my two new Wordpress sites pretty badly.
Basically, if you are going to comment on SEO, particularly important stuff, be very careful about what you say, because if you make a mistake, you could cause someone to lose all the progress they've made.
Since the algorithm change, Google is really clamping down on spam, and quality is more important than ever before, and the things which might have been good advice even a couple of months ago could be very damaging today. That's all I'm saying.
