Back in July, we polled you guys asking your view on how Google sees link building, ie is it spam or not. We have just about 500 responses thus far and truth is, it isn't good.

The question was "Is All Link Building Considered Spam By Google?"

  • 40% said Google views most link building as spam
  • 35% said Google views some link building as spam
  • 20% said Google views all link building as spam
  • 5% said Google views no link building as spam

Google Links Poll

I am not surprised by the poll results but I am sure Google will have fun with it.

Disclaimer: Please see my poll disclaimer post before coming to any conclusions on these results.

Forum discussion continued at WebmasterWorld.

This post was pre-written and scheduled to be posted today. FYI, I am offline today, so if Google does a Penguin update - I won't get to it until Monday.
