A few months ago, I asked you all to take a poll around if you have ever hurt a web site using spammy links to downgrade their rankings in Google search. The good news is that 66% of those who responded said they never tried to do so. But of those that did try, 59% said they were able to hurt a web site with spammy links and 41% said there were unsuccessful.

We had 375 responses and 248 responded that they never tried doing this. But the other 127 were split.

  • 75 people said they were able to hurt a site's ranking in Google with spammy links.
  • 52 people said they were unable to hurt a site's ranking in Google with spammy links.

Who do you believe?
