Neutral Response

An article by Michael Pedone introduces the idea that Google should ignore questionable links, as a way to thwart both link spammers and GoogleBowling.

It does sound good, but would it really solve a problem? Sure GoogleBowling obly through links won’t work. You can still GoogleBowl through other means, such as the “bacon polenta” trick by darkseoteam also known as googlewashing. How about link spammers? My prediction is that they will keep spamming their links everywhere and they won’t even have to be careful to avoid bad links.

So is there an real benefit to neutral links?
