Excessive link exchanging offences Google Link Schemes?


I had just started on this blog recently and was trying hard to attract traffic to the site, as many as possible, by trying everything that can draw the traffic online.

Then, I came across a blog, who practise religiously on trying to get everyone to link back to him by dropping comments on other blogger’s site. Let say, if there is a list of 500 bloggers out there, apparently he commented on every one of their post and asked them to link to him! Until, a few of them asked him back wouldn’t this causes some AdSense frauds? What if AdSense Google smacks him?

Well, he did a great research on whether Google will find it as a fraud to have a sudden traffic on a new site within 2 weeks period or the asking for linking back to him. What he came by was the policy from Google about Link schemes and some 90% of his humble opinions.

  1. Links intended to manipulate PageRank
  2. Links to web spammers or bad neighborhoods on the web
  3. Excessive reciprocal links or excessive link exchanging ("Link to me and I'll link to you.")
  4. Buying or selling links that pass PageRank

Alright from the item 3, it applies directly to him….but, I think at that point of time he was not advertising any Google ads, thus the policy does not affects him. He is now advertising Google’s ads though, after he achieved the ‘almost Technorati top 100’ goal, I guess.

A good start up! Increase the traffic before getting the Ads-ball rolling. (why didn't I stumble upon him earlier?)

Then, he teaches us to install blogroll, another social networking to get more networking links, which in turn gain you traffics (without breaching Google’s policy I guess). Very good idea, indeed. In this case, we can think of using Purk or Twitter as well.

Do you go against this idea or you think it is possible without affecting the policy?
