Someone contacted me through my website's contact form asking if I wanted to in the manner of getting a product review and gave me all the details. I went to look at the site. It has 20,000+ backlinks on the domain, the age was 4 years plus and the Alexa rank is 105,000. So everything looks great and the site gets loads of traffic. One problem though, I see that the site has PR 0. No PR at all!
I contacted the owner again and asked why the PR was 0 and his response was...
Apart from the traffic which will be good and probably worth the money, do you think it is good to get a dofollow link from that site even if it has been penalized? Will Google reduce my rankings for getting a link from a site like this? I'm assuming not but its worth asking.simple, Google has penalized me 1.5 year ago, but only on page rank. my traffic is normal. I don't know the reason, maybe because I sold text link via Text-Link-Ads.com or paidreview via Payperpost.
com. Google hates these two sites.
All the best,
