Reality trip of the paid link drama boat stops at the harbor for a no nonsense look at paid links and the people who sold them. Find out why Google can’t really do this.

"The first victim of the war of the links was John Chow but was he a victim? Did he deserve to no longer rank for his own name? Does it damage him or his business model? Ultimately John will be forever known as the guy Google removed from the index, from an outsiders point of view this would seem a rather petty act after all John Chow is hardly a top search term" With respect, no, John Chow was not the first victim. The current war is only a continuation of one Google’s been doing since 2002. And if there was any first victim, I’d vote that for Bob Massa of SearchKing. Time For Google To Give Up The Fight Against Paid Links? from me back in April gives some of the history of how we’re what I’d call Paid Links War II at the moment, covering a lot of the same ground already covered before.

quite right it should have probably been better written as first victim of the current link war is... I like the idea of link War II I was initially going with a star wars theme for the post I perhaps it should have been more reality orientated.
