    It’s interesting to see that Google is mirroring U.S. pubic policy. When you want a particular country to do something, cut up their neighbor as an example or else.

    unfortunate typo James.

    Haha, I’m sorry! Good find. It took me a moment. I meant *public,* not pubic. :-P

    There is a lot of huge link networks in Poland. Largest got around 40k domains. I don’t think that Matt will “kill” any of the major ones. I guess we all are gonna find out soon ;)

    It means Google accepts that LINKS are one of the most strongest factors for search engine ranking.

    It seems for me, yes. Especially in non-US countries.

    Frederik It means you are saying Google is Biased & implement his algorithm to see country & location specific & favors always US based sites?

    Am I right ?

    Both largest link networks (speaking of networks that are rotating links on their domains) in Poland have been hit. But the scale of that “action taken” in more like a gentle slap in the face than an end of anything. No more than 10% of domains were banned (deindexed).
