I use many automated spammy link tools and I've used them on my moneysites in the past and it worked, ranking number 1 in Google, then I got slapped! I was under the impression that spammy links could not have a negative effect on your website? Otherwise many people would fire these blog comments and forum posts at competitors. Should I not fire these types of links at my direct site any more? If I create another site, let's call it my "Spam Site", and Link my "Spam Site" to my "Money Site" and bascially fire all the spammy links to the "Spam Site" will my "Money Site" still increase in the rankings?
