It might be difficult to judge.  Maybe the defensive side of
the story was neglected for brevity.

Best wishes,


PS  -  I  strongly  agree with your previous  post  on  this
thread.  Several  valid points were made. To add  just  one:
'third-party' links that are bought for SEO purposes subvert
otherwise-fine  SERP's.  That  in itself is  an  abomination
which  harbours  the death of an Open and democratic Web  --
one of those aims that WordPress, being standards-compliant,
Free and suitable for all, strives to address.
