Link Monkeys and Links Within Content

Jim Boykin continues his ongoing rants about links:

Since most people are still thinking "the numbers game" when it comes to obtaining links, most people are buying "numbers" from "monkeys" on crappy link pages.

When will the world wake up that the numbers game has passed the tipping point in Google. Engine are trying to get smarter with how they analyze sites. My overall thought is that they are working to identify, simply, "Links within Content and Linking to Content"

Not too long ago when I interviewed NFFC he stated:

This is what I think, SEO is all about emotions, all about human interaction. People, search engineers even, try and force it into a numbers box.

Numbers, math and formulas are for people not smart enough to think in concepts.

I love that, link monkeys! It reminds me of where they have testimonials from and about their effective click monkeys. Maybe they can add some link monkeys and really go bananas. dt
