Wesley Chapel, Florida (high 83, low 67)
I got an email yesterday with a really strange request. It was sent as a separate e-mail, verses through a comment.
Maybe I’m missing something here. I list all the blogs that I follow on the side of my blog in my “blogroll.” That way, when ever any of you write a new post, I will be alerted to it and I won’t miss anything. Many of you do the same.
Here is the request I got. I won’t show who it was that sent it, but I will honor her request and will remove the blog from my blogroll as soon as I finish here.
Hi there --
Thank you for listing my website on your blogroll. I really appreciate it. :)
Because it is on every single page of your blog, it is bringing a LOT of links into my website. And this doesn't look good to Google and the other search engines.
I request that you please leave the link to my website on only ONE page and remove me from your blogroll.
My blogroll is on the main page of my blog, and if you read the post today, or last years post, you will see the exact same blogroll. Is that what she means about it being on every single page? I do NOT have her blog information anywhere else but on the blogroll and am not advertising her blog (which is a vegan blog)
Am I missing something about Google having a problem with this? Maybe I’m being dumb, but I would have thought if my blog was bringing “a LOT of links into her website” that would have been a good thing?
No, I have not asked her what she meant and don’t intend to do so. I will just take her blog off my blogroll and move on.
Do any of you have a problem being on my blogroll? Do you understand her problem with Google?
