I am doing a bit of research on a very important few questions and came across a thread - HERE - by a respected internet marketer. It got some sparks flying but didn't answer my questions.
Well that was almost what I was looking for. Still hunting but close. I quit submitting to EZA some time ago but have an issue that I believe is directly related to that "some time ago". With Googles updates EZA has lost a significant amount of traffic. So be it.
Why does someone lose traffic? Because they are considered to be of less quality? Most likely. EZA is one of the few places I actually got links from for the site in question. I know, not its intention. It worked for a while. I even tried some tricks at EZA which worked. This was almost 2 years ago.
The issue now is, for me and many of you hit by the zoo that used EZA, are those links behind the dreaded unnatural link penalty? I need facts if anyone has any. I suspect that EZA links are not only useless but can be the reason some can't get their sites back in Google's favor. Some are hanging on to those links in the belief they are still O.K..
1) Did anyone remove their links/articles and then actually get reconsidered?
2) Has anyone hung on to the links and reclimbed the SERPs?
These are the questions that need answering. If the links do hurt then I wouldn't syndicate too often to a MFA or link scheme site or you might shoot yourself in the foot.
Let's get this ramped up again.
