Hi friend

I found this article and I think this is great...

Can you get penalized for building links? The answer is yes.


Some marketers term such penalty as -50 penalty. Some call it -30 penalty. Whatever name you call it, the idea is the same. You are maxed at certain ranking no matter what happen.

You can access full article here

is this true..?

    In a way, yes. You can be penalized, but saying that you can beat your competitors by building them bad links, then you're playing the game the wrong way. If it was that easy, a lot of the companies would have done it. If it were true, I think it would be a complete waste of time trying to ruin the reputation of another company rather than building a good one for yourself.

    Here's my question. What about my pornographic sites? I have lots of quality on topic inbound links from other porn sites in the same...errr....niche... So am I rewarded? Penalized?

    I'd have to say rewarded in porn search, but greatly degraded in regular search. Which is fine, since I wouldn't want to rank for a non-porn related term anyways.

    To answer your question, yeah building ****ty links hurts, especially in the short run and especially if you don't have many links/a majority are spam links. If you have tons of relevant links, a few bad ones can't ruin you, or every site ever would be ruined by users posting without considering the SEO effects of what they've done.

    Having bad links pointing to your site CAN hurt you. This hasn't always been the case, but there is now proof that Google will penalize you for certain types of links. The most recent example of this is the De-indexing that occurred at ALN (authority link network). 5000 of the networks blogs were deindexed and websites that are linked from the "deindexed blogs" have received some sort of penalty.

    Can you nuke your competitors with bad links???

    You absolutely can. It will take some time and resources, but it can be done. For that reason, it's highly possible that Google will discontinue serious link penalties in the future. But for the time being, Google is being a spiteful mutha #$%#$!

      So if someone bought a cheap Fiverr gig which blasts 10,000 XRumer links, wouldn't that cause any penalty?

      Is the penalty related to the footprint which the links cause. i.e. links from a blog network. How does Google detect this if the blogs are on seperate ip addresses?

        I think the consensus is it could hurt, but it's usually not the only factor. I think a 'blast' can probably tank a weak new site for sure. (I can't believe I just made a bunch of 'Fives' for someone

    Yes, it's true if you are getting spam backlinks.

    Yes, Google is making a strong statement right now, lulz. Things will calm down soon, but many people are going to lose websites, Adsense accounts and income sources until then.

    Killing off competition is very easy right now. Just buy a big ALN blast and wait a few weeks. It's being done right now, especially in Adsense niches. This won't go on for very long IMO...

    I wouldn't go that far. People are still ranking daily using JUST SeNuke. It really depends on the keywords you're working on, and how your site looks. If you keep things looking non-spammy, and you're not doing daily Xrumer blasts, you will be fine. It's more about link diversity than anything.

      That is not true. Give me a ranking "clean" website of yours and I'll blast it into nowhere with just a few clicks of a button. It shouldn't be this easy to kill off sites (maybe not permanently, but a 3 month time-out is never pleasant).

      Daily xrumer blasts are much safer than large blog network submissions right now.

    The building link by using natural linking process will never impact on your ranking. Always try to follow all the guideline provided by search engine. If you ignore them then they will resulted penalization.

    Yes, it's absolutely true.

    It's entirely possible to knock out other sites with "unnatural linking".

    Although I agree with Google about quality content - they are going about it all wrong. They should have simply devalued the links instead of making them negative.

    Now we have the SEO negative phenomenon . Like Bnetwork said you can blast your competition by doing crap backlinks for them. And they can't control that.

    God. This thread is in most part utter rubbish. People jump to conclusions thinking that because a site tanked for a period of time or that hey happened to get an email from google that links can hurt a site. Ok, believe what you will but in the mean time would you guys mind spamming my site? I really want to feel the negative effects of spamming of links :-)

    From the article Google's Penalty For Link Building: "There isn’t a fixed rule as in how fast you should build links or how many links you should build from one site or for one site."

    This is a great statement and one that people tend to forget. You can't create a generic campaign for all your sites and I think that's where some people go wrong - It's not one size fits all with backlinks.

    Also, it's an interesting idea that you could spam other peoples' sites to get them lower rankings. Not sure how long that would fly.

      I think a lot has to do with your content also. If your site was marginal, then spammy links may hurt you more than a site google considers to be an authority site.

    Bottom line if your site is not a well aged and respected authority site than you may be vulnerable to a an attack.

    However the person attacking your website has no guarantee of successfully damaging your reputation but it is something to think about.

    Really this negative seo is one of the worst decisions they have made in a while but i suspect over time things will change.

        my pleasure.

        TBH even though I have a small IM company I am moving away from google as I notice many of the industry leaders have.

        Building lists, and great social media reputation are techniques that have always worked and will always work and are not subject to the whims of some company like google.

        I truely believe google will be a secondary market or even an afterthough in the IM business within 5 years, google knows this and this is why they are so desperate to go social but it is probably already too late
