"Why link from a site to your lens? Is it solely to get a backlink? This practice is no longer considered acceptable by search engines."
I can't help but thinking squidoo has "jumped the shark."
I can't even fathom why anyone would make a statement like that.
Probably they are just too worried about their whole empire
taking a dive, cuz that statement is "out there."
I think squidoo is panicking in the river of self preservation.
I have a running joke here about people putting up signs on their
sites saying, "don't link to me!" Looks like it's not a joke anymore.
