Farmer Wants a Link

Link Farm

No this isn’t a new hit reality show or a national geographic special on farming. This is a perfect opportunity to discuss link farms. What’s a link farm? MarketingProfs defines a link farm as a collection of links on a website that have no relation to one another other than just to build up link popularity.

Sounds good doesn’t because you and I know how much Google loves links. Google does not appreciate these types at all. In fact Google may even penalize you for participating in a link farm. There is no relevance to a link farm, let alone any value so why would a huge corporation such as Google want it in their search results. They wouldn’t.

Link building is one of the most popular and discussed issues in the world of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Of course webmasters would want to obtain the most links as possible, but doing so could not only hurt you with major search engine but your reputation as well. You don’t want your company to look sleazy and sneaky by participating in a link farm or others alike.

Advice for the day: CHECK YOUR LINKS!

    Great advice! Use the web to find instances of links to your site- and check them to make sure it’s not spam, or to make sure you’re not unknowingly participating in a link farm.
