Link Removal Fees From Web Directories

taking money for link removalsWith all the concern over unnatural link notifications, the Penguin update, disavowing links and lawsuits over linking, SEOs and webmasters are eager to remove all bad links as far back as they can.

The thing is, web directories and link directories are monetizing and taking advantage of the situation - just like they took advantage of the situation when links were perceived as being beneficial to the buyer. Yes, it is all about perception.

As we covered in the past, there are sites charging hefty fees to remove links and there are even companies specializing in link removal.

That being said, a new post at Cre8asite Forums has a webmaster posting a response for a link removal request. This web directory is charging $25 to remove one link and $50 to remove up to ten links.

They say the fee is for the "time, energy, and focus to provide you with that desire." Then they follow up to giving advice on ranking penalties, the Penguin algorithm and more.

Sad place we live in these days.
