    Green With Envy In The Google Game - Although Google's links...

    (Page 5 of 6 )

    Although Google's links do not pass PageRank to the websites that are in their index or paid listings, we have to ask ourselves one thing. Would Google be willing to take a step that would reduce the market value of their own links by 80%? They certainly would not do anything that would cut their own bottom line that deeply, yet they are asking webmasters to do just that.

    This is the reason people are teed off at Google. At least 80% of the market value of a link is driven by the PageRank value of the web page where the link will be placed.

    Dishonest people don't care to play by the rules; they will continue to sell their PageRank value, as long as they continue to have buyers. Only the honest will suffer.

    Link Buyers Are Green With Envy

    Link Buyers are envious of the PageRank value given to other web pages, and they want a bit of that value passed over to their own websites.

    Link buyers are green with envy, because they can see that little green bar in the top of their browser that tells them how much value Google gives a web page in its algorithms.

    If Google were to keep PageRank as a private value, known only to them, then "paid links" would not be an issue for them to manage.
