    Bad luck, right?

    I couldn’t really figure out what the official Buzzea statement is trying to say, could someone translate the message in a few sentences?

    It’s good news, I wonder how big of an impact is this going to have on the average users search queries.

    It’s funny that these guys are always shocked when they get caught. It’s like directory maximizer constantly sending me emails about how having my link in quality directories is key to my SEO success. Another one down.

    Will Google penalize the site that use Buzzea or not ? It seems logical. Why they do not communicate on that

    they write “Finally, we wish to thank warmly course our various partners…We sincerely hope that the sanctions will be limited to our company. It would be truly unjust that thousands of bloggers and advertisers suffer from this illegal and abusive decision.”

    Basically goodnight Buzzea. Cut throat Google!

    That’s the problem, one could setup a negative SEO campaign against one of their competitors using a broad amount of networks and only spend a small amount with each. Then if Google hits one of the networks their competitors site could get hit bad. People need to closely monitor what backlinks are being built to their sites and take action when it appears an attack is occurring. Just like review monitoring backlink monitoring growing rapidly.

    What is really funny is the second letter posted by Buzzea here: http://www.buzzea.com/communique30-01.php
    They claim that some bloggers affiliated with the site watched their Page Rank drop to 0 and they are shocked by it. I am also shocked, Google updated page rank!

    they do work very well. this is why google shuts them down. and i dont think most buyers will get penalized.

  • http://www.CheesyCorporateLingo.com/ Patrick Reinhart

    if the link network gets shut down, everyone technically gets penalized since they lose those links. Maybe not a manual penalty, but that’s still technically a penalty….which is really them NOT working well, isn’t it?

  • atentat

    Loosing links is not a penalty. Since you rent this links and pay for them per month you dont loose anything, just need to find a replacement network and youre back in business without loosing any money.

  • atentat

    I think they penalize the sites which have a big portion of their backlinks from such networks. However if you have a lot legit links you will probably not be penalized for a couple unnatural ones.
