RSS the SEO’s Worst Nightmare ! - SEO Blog by Dave Naylor - SEO Tools, Tips & News: "So here’s the issue everyone is just using the BBC’s RSS on their websites.
1) If you can get 30,000 backlinks in few hours for free, how many links would you buy?
2) If the BBC have done nothing but syndicate their website like millions of others, why would Google send them the unnatural link warning.
3) But this is the BBC, what if it was just another website that got hit, just like a new client of mine that is now spending 1000’s on the clean up of links that they never purchased, they just created great content on their site and let people syndicate VIA RSS."
