Spam propogating tools not OK

September 26th, 2006


Q: Regarding Link Popularity: What is your opinion about tools like Arelis that can help produce link popularity. Can these do more harm than good?

A: How do you feel when you get an unsolicited reciprocal link request via email? How many of them do you respond with a “Yep, sure thing. I added a link to you.”? So why buy a tool that propagates that sort of spam? We don’t use any such tools.
