Just a quick question to anyone that has a bit on knowledge with this. I was wondering if spamming referral links passes any link juice onto the main domain. For example say I spammed the hell out of my website using a referral link instead of a filter page or linking directly. Would this still improve my rankings for my keyword. name: main keyword website: www. mysite.com/?ref=242 comment: bla bla bla edit: I'm also asking this because spamming using a referal link doesn't look like the domain owner is spamming it looks like the websites users are spamming. Which shouldn't have a negative effect on ranking, but if it doesn't pass on any link juice this is pointless.
