|Interweb folks, what would be the effect of us all putting expelled exposed links in our sigs?|
I'm not an interwebber but Apollos over at UD has an interesting factoid:
|Blog comments (and typically forum comments as well) instruct Google and other responsible crawlers to ignore comment hyperlinks. (rel=”nofollow”)|
It makes a good spam deterrent, and prevents Google bombing from spurious blog and forum commenting.
You need a cluster of “legitimate” sites, committed to the same purpose, for a Google bomb to work properly, AFAIK.
Plausible, and therefore a very rare gem indeed from the tardpits. Of course, the explanation could simply be that apollos is a sock puppet. Oh wait, so is everybody else on UD.
