Poll: If Google Dropped Links From Their Ranking Algorithm I Would...

Feb 7, 2014 - 8:14 am 23 by

Google Webmaster Tools Bug in LinksWebmasterWorld moderator, Greg Niland, posted a thread at WebmasterWorld on the topic of Google dropping links from their ranking algorithm.

He asked, "What would you do if Google's next algo update stopped counting links?"

Good question, what would you do? Take my poll:

The truth is, I never paid for a link or tried to "build links." But if Google dropped links from their algorithm, I am sure it would have a major impact on how my sites rank. It may benefit them or it may destroy them. I don't know. So I am not sure how I would react, until after I saw my analytics.

That being said, I cannot imagine Google dropping links in their algorithm. Not in the next 2-3 years and even then, it would still be a part of their algorithm.

Excellent discussion at WebmasterWorld and I love theoretical topics because title tags sometimes bores me.
