    From the man himself. Obviously not an invite to spam however. But if he is already talking about turning off back link relevancy as a ranking metric, it will likely happen at some point.

    I guess it's time to start bolstering those social signals.

    They remove backlink relevance and we go back to an age of markov generated content, keyword stuffing and other shit that would destroy them in no time. As he has said backlinks are a really good indicator of the popularity of a website. Social signals still result in backlinks its just that the term social signals has become a buzz word for a specific type of content that can include mentions (a.k.a backlinks) to your websites/webpages.

    Social signals are backlinks.

    They can be non backlinks as well. Likes, follows, +1's etc...

    Indeed it was already shared, but it's still just as important for the nice people here to remember that BH is the way forward, regardless of the propaganda you might be exposed to :)

    It's quite difficult to keep an eye on every thread because this site is inhabited by people around the world with different timezones. Nevertheless if you don't sleep or have people working for you monitoring this place, In that case you have a chance to never miss a thread.

    Thanks for the thread and let's try not to be so rude with others, being gentle is not a value that should disappear because you are using a nickname.
