A few questions: I have heard a few things regarding links: 1. Pages with more than a specific number of links on a single page (I've heard this number is between 25-50) are considered "link farms" and any page that it links to is penalized by Google. 2. ^ the above is true, but Google doesn't penalize for this because otherwise people could submit their competition to linkfarms 3. ^ the above is true but you only get penalized if YOU link to the linkfarm (Google only penalizes a site for what it can control, and a site can control its outbound links) Assuming #1 is true, what if the page has 100s of links, but it is a .edu site? Is it a linkfarm? Or is it a super powerful link cuz it's a .edu? I'm talking to a professor at a college who wants to link to my site on his "links" page, but his "links" page already has 100s of links on it and I don't want to be penalized for getting a link. On the other hand, I've heard that links from .edu sites are super powerful, so... what should I do?
