    I always thought that infographics needed to clear things up, this one surely is only made for linkbait (like a lot these days…) since it’s more complicated than the original algorithm.

    hehe you got a point there :)

    I may be reading this wrongly, but this seems to hugely confuse pagerank and the Google algorithm. Link exchanges for example still pass pagerank as any other link would, but there is speculation that this is devalued as part of the ranking algorithm, and since when did the topic of a link influence how much pagerank it passes?

    You’re right Matt, its not as accurate as it should be by far when it comes to Pagerank. It could have better been called ‘Trying to understand the Algorithm’ 😉

    this is not cited right – the infographic is from Zippycart and this is stealing if you do not put in the right source. they have a creative commons license….

    Hi Todd, I found it on websonic (I see the link is wrong) but they seem to have deleted it. I’ll check it and when they deserve the link they’ll get it no worries about that :)

    This is a great inforgrpahic to share with clients who are familiar with online advertising and are looking to rank higher in search. It gives them a easy way to understand the pros and cons with having some sites like to your while ignoring true common sense practices that build value over time. Building inbound links to your website is hard and takes time, but the effort is worth it in the end when your website ranks higher and you have a placement that has long term value.
