Over at Digitalpoint I spotted a thread titled OnClick JS in the link ahref and I suggested a test. I mulled it over and decided to test it myself.
If I have two links to page which shouldn’t normally get links. Will the way I link to them make any difference?
I saw in my NBO NZ post that my link to a Domainz page caused that page to be indexed and to rank highly for the keywords nbo nz. I wanted to pick a page which wouldn’t normally be indexed and where I could be certain to be creating the only inbound link – and therefore responsible for any effect.
So, not wanting to throw things out for the actual businesses, I thought I’d pick some sites where the domain name is pretty unique.
- Regal Palms Motor Lodge in Rotorua, I’ve stayed there and it’s great.
- Simunovich Olive Estate – I don’t know anything about these guys but they have only one page of results in my test search so they seem a good target. They’ll get the bad link.
So here are my test links
I’ll keep an eye on these to see if the Domainz pages start getting indexed and if the links are seen to count. Watch this space…
