However from my research it seems many legitimate sites were affected and many low quality EMD sites weren’t hit at all. Another example of a failed Google attempt at cleaning up the search results.

The sites that I have being hit hard have few links most of witch have high number of EM anchors. From what I have seen on my sites you get a little more leniency with EM anchor text ratios but it but if it is too high (say 1/3 or more), you are still going to get hit.

Sorry I didn’t see your comment, and I’m not used to replying here anymore LOL

No ideas about Social Links campaign TBH. Social signals are still far too noisy, and the fragmented social arena means it will be difficult for Google to use this to bubble up content. Not everyone is liking the things we search for.

Its like the old school SEO folks are all fed up with SEO, ready to apologise to the brands who have mega bucks to spend and want to pretend that link building, EMD and branded search are wrong and evil.

Any take on Rand’s campaign for Social Links? Given that its probably easier to build fake profiles, buy likes, RTs, and the nofollow and the walled gardens…?
