    3) Sites with outbound links that are not permanent will be given a SERIOUS penalty because the site is either making errors in linking or spamming links. In either case this patent says these sites will be penalized.

    I don't believe that would ever be put in place as just about every top site would be getting "serious penalties".

    There are legitimate uses for rotating links so to invoke a serious penalty (not a devaluation, but a serious penalty) would be disasterous.

    There are a lot of things in the patent meant for publicity or to scare SEO's. There has to be a practical application for it to be something to worry about.

    The major difference is that newsites link to internal pages from their home pages.. Most of the links on their home page are dynamic but pointing inward.. This is natural in dynamic sites... The other thing is they only display headlines on the front and other section front pages with any outgoing links placed deep in the newstory a fixed page. I did a quick look at cnn, foxnews, and other sites and have noticed this to be true for the most part.

    I don't necessarily agree with the fact that Google is going after this but it would be very easy to do with little or no collateral damage.

    I don't agree. News is just one area that would be affected (including other sites that use their or any RSS feeds)

    Google would really feel the backlash when they penalized for such a new and popular way to share info

    RSS Feeds would be a problem... I agree with that.. And that is probably why they would never put any serious penalty on this.

    IF this is true (rotating links ==> penalty), then co-op V2.0 should have non-rotating links :)
    just pick a link randomly, put in on a page, and leave it there for 3 months.

    problem solved :)

    I just bring in ideas, the actual work/programming I leave gladly to you DP :)


    but now I think about it a bit, why is this a bad idea, besides google's patent?
    Why would you not have a set of 5 links that stick around a while?

    Penalizing sites with fresh links would rather negate the idea that google likes fresh content.

    But if Shawn wants to slow down link rotation, that has advantages too....
