It looks like Google is at it again. Many webmasters and SEO’s have reported a drop in ranking to certain websites and they believe it is from the newest adjustment to Google Penguin. Google is now targeting the link building site called SAPE Links, or so many webmasters have accused.
Many webmasters that have used the link building site SAPE Links, have stated that they are seeing their websites take harsh penalties from Google in recent weeks. This of course leads to a drop in search engine ranking and infuriates many webmasters. The tricky part about this accusation is that not all webmasters agree. Some that still use SAPE Links have not noticed any negative impacts to their websites.
Google has not released any official word of changes made to the Google Penguin algorithm; however, the question should be aimed at the Webmasters that are still using Link Networks. Google has been known to target link building sites like these, like when they penalized websites that used BuildMyRank.com. Using Black Hat SEO techniques always seem to catch up to you, so why bother wasting your time with it? It could take you hours upon hours to create all these bad links, and then Google can make a change and all the work will be gone in the blink of an eye.
Since Google will continuously be attacking link networks and paid link advertising techniques, it just doesn’t make sense to waste your time and money on it. Take the time to practice the proper SEO technique that will build good inbound links to your website. A few of these techniques including listing sites and social bookmarking sites, and are great ways to strengthen your website.
