You enrolled in lots of link exchange schemes a long time ago. You’ve got about a dozen link pages on your website all linking out to random places, and your link profile is mainly low quality directories and keyword-rich-domain websites – you know the type, garden-furniture-sales-direct.com!
Google is discounting low quality links such as directories more and more, and they don’t like it when you link out to spammy websites. So what would happen if you removed all your link exchange pages?
No really…what? Leaving them there won’t hurt, but will removing them damage your rankings? Answers by pigeon post please!
