The DMOZ mob strikes again…

This weekend I was reading about Shoemoney being extorted by a DMOZ editor. I thought: heck, I’m a DMOZ editor, I don’t want to be associated with stuff like that, let’s see if I can do anything to help. So I posted something like that in the commentthread to the above post, and I added…

The trouble with 301 redirects and backlinks

On the SERoundtable the question is raised whether you can check if a site 301 redirects to your website, referring to a thread on the SEW forums and an article by Aaron Wall. That seems quite simple to me, as most of the times you’ll see clicks coming in from sites on which your own…

Contextual links for sale
