Default Toilet Paper Coupons

I ran across a pretty funny example. I think this site likely paid some big money for high pagerank links from an SEO firm. They have a pagerank 6 site as a result of blog commenting on high PR do follow blogs, yet they don't rank for Toilet Paper Coupons.

And this is why in a year or two you are going to be glad you ran a quality directory, because this crap doesn't work!

And here is a spreadsheet showing you the so called "white hat high PR links" that people are trying to sell

While I agree with you about being careful, looking at the toilet paper example, the problem is a complete and utter lack of anchor text diversification. Not so much where the links are coming from.
You can see at ahrefs here why the are ranking around 150 for toilet paper coupons. Well over 90% of the IBLs are all one phrase.

The links have dropped and so has the page rank. 4 is still respectable. Shows to me that Google Page Rank can be fooled and is a faulty indicator. There are many directories with high P/R that sell products such as non-prescription Viagra, and have spammy links in the wrong categories.

Google does not appear to discriminate between the good and bad, hopefully in the long term they will. White hat is a long term strategy.

I don`t understand why people would try to cheat Google. I mean even if you are not caught today or tomorrow, eventually you will at some point. So to invest effort in something that could lead to negative results when you could put the same effort in achieve your goals without breaking the rules.

Code:
Content visible to registered users only.
because these people aren't into it for the long term....these are the fly by night sites....in it for a quick buck and then gone once the money runs out...
hence why directories for so long had such a bad rep

but then again I really don't care what google says/does/thinks....pr is/has/always will be a joke. SERPs of course are nice. But in the end you do for you and your clients and word of mouth will 10 fold your traffic/income.

People WILL try and cheat Google. simply because Google are in the habit of cheating everyone else.

Like shadav, I take absolutely no notice of ANYTHING Google says or does anymore.. They are a bunch of lying shysters.

There is a group of directories I have been following all from the same person that hacked in to high PR sites and 50 plus directories are PR 6 or more, with like 8 PR 7s. They were reported months ago. They have been stealing away business from people who didn't hack. They have had the pagerank for 6 months and made millions, all from literally code injection on edu and organization sites. Let me repeat, they made millions. How do you think operations like this make our industry look? And do you think google even cares? Maybe it helps google? It's obvious. It is has been reported months ago by multiple people. Nothing has been done.

Maybe Google loves the topic of this thread and gave it a PR6
