Last week I noticed an article was being filtered from the search results and thought it might be because of a link to Digital Point.

The link was removed and as soon as Google re-crawled the page it started to rank right where it should.

Clearly this isn’t a particularly scientific test as there are no doubt hundreds of other factors that might have affected the results. The key issue is that for months this page hasn’t ranked where it should and as soon as the offending link was removed the rankings shot up.

I certainly won’t ever link to Digital Point again.
