I’m not going to link to it. There’s a childish “controversy” going on in the SEO/Blog community, which I suspect is yet more link baiting. Do your own digging, but I can assure you, it’s not worth your time.
The problem I find with these “look-at-me” link bait schemes is this – the credibility of the participants drops. It’s all getting a bit tired.
Are the writers writing about something that might interest me, or help me, or inform me? Or are they writing purely to attract links? I guess they might try and argue “both”. I’d say few people can do both well, and it shows.
It’s already backfiring on these guys. If they care that little about the people who read their stuff, they don’t deserve to have people reading their stuff.
