There are so many things that people don’t realize about Google, and its ranking strategies, but recently it seems that Google has decided that they have to control how, who and when we link to other people.
Heading up Google’s Webspam team, you have to wonder is Matt Cutts the link nazi? These are the people deciding who and how we are allowed to link people. Do we need to “no-follow” every link other than those we implicitly trust? What sort of rules to we have to follow to be ranked well by Google, and not be flagged by the web spam team.
As a blogger, do you worry about being flagged by Google or do you just keep blogging the way you always have?
