What is a spammy backlink?
« on: August 06, 2014, 06:59:06 PM »
Any backlink on a site not related to my own site's niche could be a spammy backlink.  At least, that's how I think Google would see it.  As realistically, what's the chances that a blog about golfing would ever link to a mom tips website?  See?  That makes no sense.  But, some people don't see it that way and try to get backlinks from any site whether or not they relate to the same niche.  And, that leads to penalties.

In your opinion, what is a spammy backlink?
