The other day when I posted my hypothesis on why websites’ pagerank dropped, I left TLA an email asking will they ever put the nofollow tag in their ads so I can continue to use them. Surprisingly they replied like a man under a rock, here’s the transcript of our emails:
ME: “Will you ever consider putting the “nofollow” attribute in your text links so I can continue using TLA? I am worried about Google penalizing me for selling links that pass pagerank and link juice”
TLA: “No, we will not. Nofollow is for comment spam, not for advertisements.”
ME: “How about this:
Searchengineland is not Google. They are not the authority on the matter.”
Maybe you missed his disclaimer.
“This is my personal blog. The views expressed on these pages are mine alone and not those of my employer.”
ME: “Ok, here’s some more:
That makes Google a bit of a hypocrite now, doesn’t it.”
ME: “Haha. You cracked me up there dude.
I guess you should do your homework now and tell Patrick
what’s happening ;-)”
What were they thinking? I’ve got proof and there’s no way you can clog me up.
At least that man made my day :razz:
Oh btw, I don’t hate TLA. It’s just that if they don’t put the nofollow tag on the ads I’ll stop using their service, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop using feedvertising and their affiliate!
