Will SEOs Stop Buying Links in Light of the Risks?

Oct 16, 2007 • 6:35 am | comments (5) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Link Building Tips & SEO

We recently had the October 2007 Paid Link Debate which recapped the discussion around Danny Sullivan's Official: Selling Paid Links Can Hurt Your PageRank Or Rankings On Google.

But will SEOs and Webmasters stop buying links? That is the question being asked at a DigitalPoint Forums thread.

Currently there is a live poll there with 25 responses in under 24 hours. The poll asks:

Will Google's threats make you stop selling text link ads?

The responses are:

  • Google's bluffing. I'm still selling ads (11) 44.00%
  • Google's not bluffing. I've stopped selling ads (6) 24.00%
  • I'll stop at the slightest sign of trouble (please expalin what is that sign?) (4) 16.00%
  • Google's not 100% ready yet. I'll stop in a month or two. (4) 16.00%

I would love to see more responses in this anonymous poll.
