    A few isolated cases doesn't make it the wild west, and this would be much easier to fix than the old building 1000's of spammy links method

    Well as the disclaimer says, it is untested and doesn't work 100% of the time. Unlike methods in the past

    Interesting read over my morning coffee. Reassuring to see Google as dismissive as ever.

    Sounds like a fishy answer to put off people from using the method.

    Anyone that says that it doesn't work 100% of the time clearly has been testing it.

    Or it does work 100% of the time, and doesn't need testing.

    :)
