As you may know I’m a massive Blackpool FC fan, this picture has been doing the rounds of the new shirt sponsor. It’s none other than Bing. We know they have a massive budget for marketing in the UK, you just need to watch TV for 10 mins and you’ll catch a TV ad.
Good move by Bing?
Sometimes as an SEO you reach a point when you’ve tried everything to get a site ranking or out of a penalty. If your out of options then a good place to turn is the Webmaster Forums from Google, MSN and Yahoo.
They are great resource to get help from people who really do want to help you even though they have nothing to gain. It seems at the moment that the Bing Webmaster Forums are being used to grab a free link to a site of your choice.
You can add a link into your post or signature and it won’t have a nofollow. For example
Most of the people who are there to help may have a link to their blog or company which is acceptable considering they are helping people. Some are taking a little further.
As expected you always get a viagra link.
And this fella has got an advert in his sig!
But, if you give a platform for people to add links in that are not no followed, you will get links to porn sites, it’s inevitable.
Hope this hasn’t ousted anyones primary source of links!
