Breaking Links to Junk Science and Other Rubbish Posts
ECF is a wealth of information with literally hundred of thousands of threads and over 5 million posts. This makes links from ECF worth a lot in terms of "Google Juice". We have a policy here of denying this credibility (in search engine thinking) to junk science and other rubbish posts (like press releases).
If you want to bring a URL to the table that is to a site spouting rubbish and lies, please break the link by removing the http:// and spacing out the URL. See example below. This keeps the search engines from counting the link and giving them Google Juice, yet still allows us human types to visit the site by simply rebuilding the URL in our browser's address window.
Instead of linking like this:
www. reboot-n . com/bash.php
Your help in denying the Antis and Pseudo-Scientists traction on the search engines is greatly appreciated.
