Can google spot 1px backlink ? I mean automatically spot and put it on review-bitchslap list ?
It could be 1/2 a pixel, if it is in the source code they'll see it... But I'm also paranoid :10:
Google can see all links regardless of their content size. Even zero content links will be seen...
Yeah hiding things from Google doesn't work real well. The spiders read the output of html, G doesn't look at the actual page and how it's displayed unless it's a manual review...Cloaking would work better than shrinking the displayed size lol
Google reads the HTML of a website, no matter whatever you do to hide the text.
Google is a program, not a person. To Google a link is a link, you cannot hide it by making it smaller, as Google does not have eyes, therefore the size is irrelevant.
G reads the source not a browser render of the page.
1px links - NO DICE!
How about text that is the same color as the background or very small text size ? Would they consider it 'bad' ?
Oldest trick in the book. Yeah, bad.
This is an outdated practice...Used to work great, for stuffing keywords as well, but the color is irrelevant to google. They even follow no follow links half the time, there's really no getting it by em... You're better off just not including shitty outbound links than trying to hide them >.<
I think they CAN.
Maybe you should start by reading Google "Webmaster Guidelines - Webmaster Tools Help"..
I tried to post the link but I'm not allowed
Yes when they crawl the site they will see anything there that can be seen. Does not matter about the size.
I know that they will see , but will they know that the link is not legit and treat it like it's a bad thing ?
Let's try this: why are you hiding the link in the first place?
Because the owner of the site is alright with having my link on his popular site without me paying the monthly/yearly , as long as visitors can't see the link...
Hiding links is the oldest and easiest way to get you site in troubles, I'm sure Google's engineers have the hidden link issue figured out... Link to him from an irrelevant image/logo or something else but don't hide it completely.
