Beating the spam-man…

Google does it again, they’re changing the way the work to try to beat spammers. So now if your page has too many links from other sites too quickly, if your mail server is on a blacklist, your page isn’t updated very often, your domain name was registered quite recently, or your pages change the topic of their content too often, you could end up being penalised by Google, and see your site slipping down their search results.

This quote is quite amazing:

New web sites should not acquire too many new links; it?ll be tolerated if the links are from trusted sites but it may be considered spam.

So you’re not allowed to get popular quickly. Which kind of negates the power of the immediacy of the web. Hmmm.
