In Response To: Hmmmmmm.... (MaaMaw)


Hey Maw,

A year or so ago when I had AuctionHints redone one of the portions of the "deal" was that I would "place a link on the site to drive traffic to his (website)"

When I asked why he explained that when you tie in one site with another it doesn't hurt the PR of the higher but does serve to raise the PR of the new website.

I have "used" AuctionHints for this several times since then both for my own websites as well as for contractors. (sort of an advertising fee)

One of my concerns was with the search engines. Would this move somehow mess up my overall SEO?

I was assured that it would not and sure enough, here some 14 months later, I have seen my SEO improve and no less than 4 websites have benefitted from my more powerful and higher ranked PR site. The proof lay in my newest website, OnlineArticleConnection. It is less than 2 weeks since actual launch and it is already a PR 3. Traffic has been steadily increasing and I have little doubt that by the time I opt to remove the link on AuctionHints it will be at least a PR 4.

There is also one more side note on this matter.

If you market domains and websites one of the things that get checked is the PR. The higher the PR the more the perceived value. Look at SEDO at the websites with PR 3 and better versus those with none.

So...

I was assured that I am in no way hurting AuctionHints and, while PR is not the true indicator of the success or failure of an online business endeavor, it does give an indication of the importance of the website to the search engines. "Pagerank is the measure of how important a website is online" according to Google's own definition. The higher the number the better.

The FIB, the last time I looked, was a solid PR 5 and I don't know any reason why you can't use that to your advantage. Perhaps not a permanent link but at least one that, for awhile, carries the new site to a higher PR. (note that AmericaZoo.com is also a PR 5 but for any other new sites you launch this is at least something to think about)

Let me know what you think,
Jim

PR 3 Already! (and will keep getting higher!)

NOTICE TO SCUMBEEZLES
(you know who you are... you scream "Foul!" when the truth comes out)
        PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT.  It has been done before, but never successfully.  In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
        If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
        NEWS FLASH:  I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday.  I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish.  I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?).  I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!" 
        Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

        Although we may, from time to time, monitor or review discussions, postings and the like on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, we are under no obligation to do so.  We are not responsible or liable for any claim arising from the content of any such discussions or postings or for any error, defamation, libel, slander, omission, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity, danger, or inaccuracy contained in any information contained within such locations on the Site.
        You are prohibited from posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane materials or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law.  You are likewise prohibited from posting any false claims against any company or individual.  We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.
        By posting messages and/or content on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, you give permission for Lesley Fountain/Friends In Business/Shoestring Success Publications to display, distribute and use the posting and content for publication, advertising, promotion, excerption or example. You grant Lesley Fountain/Friends In Business/Shoestring Success Publications complete, perpetual, but non-exclusive rights to use, archive, reproduce, adapt, modify, distribute, sub-license, repurpose, rework, compile, or offer for sale or resale the messages, postings or content appearing on this site in whole or in part, throughout the world and universe, on a royalty-free basis without remuneration.  If you cannot accept or agree with the terms of service for this website and discussion board, you are advised not to post on this board.
        In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
        And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
