Hi Guys

I have heard that if some one places a link on a website with your URL in a white font and its on a white back ground , so its there but not visible, that this can have a negative effect.

Is this true.

why place something which will appear invisible to the eye might as well not include it in the page... remember back links is not only for PR purposes or what so ever but this is for the sites' traffic... always work honestly to have your results satisfactory... don't ever CHEAT whenever you do this remember you are not only cheating others but also your own capability...

It won't have a negative effect on you (otherwise you could saboutage anyone's site) but if reported, the linking site may be penalised.

A link on a website with white font and white background is considered as "hidden text" or it is a form of spamming and may cause a negative effect for your site.

I have accidentally changed the color of a link on my site to white on a white background. The link was sent to an internal page. Within a day I was removed from google results. I found my mistake fixed it and in about 3 days I was back in the google results. Based on this I'm pretty sure that google can tell if the color of you link matches the background of the page.

I don't think that having a link that is "hidden" like that could effect the site that it's linking to. If that was true then everyone's competition would just start linking to each other in such ways. I don't think that google would penalize you for something you cannot control, how ever I'm sure that those links don't help the site at all.

Its true that white font on a white back ground will definetly harm your site because this type of technique is a part of black hat seo and google penalize the site.

I agree, never a good idea. It is so much more fun when you win using the rules.

Just a question...........do the same rules apply when the links are simply to other parts of your own site? How could this be unethical?

You can build the internal linking of your site. This will help your traffic flow with customers and increase exposure to search engines. I would stay away from any blackhat practices if you mean have links on your homepage with white text links to your 2nd click thru pages, avoid that.

Search engine optimization is a great challenge for all SEOs due to change in the search engine's algo. Everybody is trying their best to rank in search engines but only sucessfull SEOs are compensated for their efforts. Search engines are black sea for all SEOs because they never publish their algo for SERPs.
