Can I Create Backlinks Using Emoticons?
I discovered a web page of a supposed SEO guru that was talking about a backlink method . This method was to get into a forum and use emoticon like :-) or whatever and place a backlink on it. This method was used to avoid the moderator to block the backlink. I used it to test and after I found on wikipedia some of the system Google was using to penalize a web-page. This article was saying that any link with strange character like "#!() or whatever were penalized.
So I wonder if the ban of the my web-site experienced in google was due to that.
It is quite funny that this person sell a book on Amazon about SEO.
