    Greetings!

    Was doing a task for a client which included checking his backlinks on his .com.ua domain (Ukraine). Of course most of the links were crappy, but after checking over 100 news related websites and their metrics - question appeared: Do you treat news websites and their metrics - TF,CF the same as another websites? Basically it's a rule that CF and TF difference should not exceed 1.3 (if you divide them) , as it indicates for a spam on the domain. From my experience (of course russian speaking websites and tld's are a bit more trashy than another ones) news websites have a higher difference in tf/cf than another niche websites. Is it true or I am mistaken?
