I have an invisible backlink from a PR3 page. By Invinsible i mean the link on that page is White and cannot be seen if not selectet. Is that ok for google?

And why won't it count as a backlink, Google still hasn't picked it up.

cheers

lol so i change it to black then

edit: I changed it to this color which happens to be the same color ozzu uses, anyway..

Is this good enough for google to see or do i need to make it blink and some arrows pointing to it and underlined or bold?

I suggest not putting up links that can't be seen due to the fact that link and background color are the same.

Google considder this as black hat SEO techniques and it would only do the opposite of the intention you innitially had in mind.

Remove these links or make them visible otherwise google will pick up on them at some point and will penalize you for it.

I guess you can always put a white image as a background. Google won't scan it pixel by pixel to find out if you are hiding the link.

Is that on the "It's only illegal if you get caught" principle?

Kind of...
It shows that if you really want to, there's not much Google can do to stop you from using this type of black hat seo.
On the other hand, I wouldn't risk having a site kicked out of the serps for this.

How can a bot find out that the text is invisible or not????

If i use white bg and white font then there are chances, bcos google can smell Bg color and font color.
If i use bg as image that is white image called bg.jpg and its color is white now i use white font over it then?????
how will google know that bg.jpg is white in color?

Can you explain me???

Because Google has human employees that check sites too.

Many Black hat SEO webmasters, even though their site design is white hat, their off site promotion is black, and usually they dishonour links exchanges in a variety of undetectable ways.. so if you exchange links and the return link is not showing up in a search engine after say 6 weeks, then personally I would delete their link on my site for the reason that they might be dishonouring the exchange AND because the return link is probably worthless anyway

links that are similar to the background or the same will not count as a back link, it's classed as black hat seo...

BUT.... what google can not find out is this.

if you have a black background, and your table cell is using an image that is white and you placed a white text link, it will count, google will take the black background color as the main BG, it can't read images. ;)

It is so important for your biz to make the link invisible? I still can't figure out any logical reason for doing it.

cos you don't want to pass on a page rank to a page like a contact us page, etc, you don't want to rank for those pages, besides, higher the PR on your inner article pages, the faster your next page you add from a high PR article, the quicker the new article gets indexed.

It's ok if you have no bad intension. But as far as google's concern, the link should be visible because hiding text/link is considered as black hat technique.

When optimising for Google, it is best to do this naturally. Finding ways to cheat the search engine will only make them discard your website. Work with them - not against them.
If you use trial and error to work out what the search engines like, then this will work better. Once you have defined things, you will get high rankings.

If you are hiding links to your site then Google will find them. Google is smart and will prioritise the unsuspicious.

Adding a range of methods to your website like RSS, forms, drop down menus, Headings etc will help.

Please feel free to take a look at our website http://www.crearecommunications.co.uk. We have beem trying to get to the top of Google for over a year now for just web design which is a very competitive link. One thing is to get backlinks from people with high page rank and status in Search engines. They will be clicked on more, and so will you.
