    Looks like a lot of the posters here are using this page to link to the sites they are doing optimization. But now that the nofollow tag has been added it would not contribute anything to the page ranks. lolz

  • http://www.uniquedogclothing.com Dog

    Yahoo had a new algo update, it getting worse…I have same experience with some of you guys. Some days my page ranking in top 10, some other days can be on 100 or 150… It really confused.

  • http://www.spiffylinks.com Links Business

    Yahoo using anchor text to replace your site title, how would that work? What if you have 1K or 2K sites referring back to you, all using a variation of anchor text? Some sites would even have bad, dumb anchors.

    Hopefully that won’t happen.
