Someone contacted me through my website's contact form asking if I wanted to in the manner of getting a product review and gave me all the details. I went to look at the site. It has 20,000+ backlinks on the domain, the age was 4 years plus and the Alexa rank is 105,000. So everything looks great and the site gets loads of traffic. One problem though, I see that the site has PR 0. No PR at all!
I contacted the owner again and asked why the PR was 0 and his response was...
simple, Google has penalized me 1.5 year ago, but only on page rank. my traffic is normal. I don't know the reason, maybe because I sold text link via Text-Link-Ads.com or paidreview via Payperpost.
com. Google hates these two sites.
Apart from the traffic which will be good and probably worth the money, do you think it is good to get a dofollow link from that site even if it has been penalized? Will Google reduce my rankings for getting a link from a site like this? I'm assuming not but its worth asking.
All the best,
