Let's don't mislead anyone here. That GOOG fiasco was completely unassociated with IBLs, link mongering or any other kind of linking issue (outside of internal links, maybe, if you stretch it real hard)."It still works and does not show signs of dying at all. That was shown in the recent 5 billion page PR nightmare of googles. They are giving a lot of talk to the new changes in links, but so far, little has actually been shown as being affected by what they say is happening from what I have seen."
What happened? You're usually more "guarded" than to place something like that, out there. Maybe you simply misquoted yourself, or meant to say something else. It happens, after a long week.
