We built tons of domain style anchors to it and generic anchors. We also cleaned up the site. I also did a press release, and am now adding some high PR links to it from special high PR domains I am buying. I am quite shocked it has recovered, but it has.
But in the midst of this, I also paid some company $1000 to help me find bad links. They came back with a crappy little list and I really dont think removing these links will do much good.
To be honest, I am not yet convinced that there are really bad links. But please, prove me wrong.
Are directory listings bad?
Are article directories bad?
Unrelated blog comments bad?
I really wish I knew where the line was -- on what is bad and what is not.
