What Will Be Google's Panda/Penguin For 2013?
Money for links. What a concept. We're not talking about paying someone to have them link to you. We all know Google's stance on that. If you pay for a link that passes PageRank, and Google discovers it, you'll find yourself with some SEO problems, to say the least. The fact that people do engage in this practice, however, illustrates that links can be valuable. People want others to link to their content, because that means potential eyeballs on their sites. How backwards is it then, that there are actually organizations who think their content is so special that they have the nerve to charge others for the privilege of linking to it.
