So, These are the facts: - lots of directory submission to directories that want link-back 1) created a page /partners.html 2) added all those necessary links in that page (about 300 links) 3) linked that page in the footer 4) Nofollow tag on that footer link 5) Disallow /partners.html in robots.txt 6) url removal request for /partners.html page at webmaster tools Now, the question is, is that page affecting my website given all the measures taken? And if so, in what extent? Because I'm with some keywords in the first page, with some on the second page top 3 positions. My opinion is that it's not affecting my website but maybe I'm wrong.. that's why i need some help figuring that out. Thanx.
