Link spamming

Link spamming

Realizing the importance of links and link analysis in search engine results, several link

farms and Free for All sites have appeared that offer to provide links to your site. This is

also referred to as link spamming. Most search engines are smarter to this obvious tactic

and know how to spot this. Such FFA sites, as they are known, do not provide link

quality or link context, two factors that are important in link analysis. Thus the correct

strategy is to avoid link spamming and not get carried away by what seems to be too

simple a solution.
