We had a big issue with including our ads in the content network...we were getting all these clicks yet no sales or even inquiries....we had a disproportionate amount of visits to the main page but no clicks through to the product pages....obviously abuse from someone running adsense ads and trying ...

That all sounds like good advice but if you don't optimize for the se's how do you get traffic?

Goodle has methods in place to prevent click abuse. I would be careful if your clicking on your competitors links just to get them to reach their daily limit. Google can see your ip address when you click on an ad.

Look out for trafficpower they have opened up under a new name "" and are actively soliciting customers.....and there still getting sued for the bad work they did before as trafficpower...go figure.

How will it handle unidentified countries....I see a bunch of those in my stats where the ip can't be pinned to a country...I assume english...or are all the page in english and your just customizing products/info for location.

Are you including your code in every page or will you have a dll or exe running in memory to handle requests?

A client requested a site, with a redirect based on user IP (location sensitive web page).

On a site with a PR of 6 or higher you could still get a second link page with PR4 two clicks down from the home page or one click from your good link page...that might attract some PR4 trades.

Wouldn't it make sense to trade links with any related site regardless of are still getting a link back which helps move your PR higher...even if it's slightly higher...and your outgoing link page is still going to leak PR....although if your limiting your self to only 50 or so outgoing li...

This is not the same problem .... frames had the problem of multiple documents (with different docIDs) appearing on the same page. In effect one page with multiple addresses.

That explains a lot...PR would be messed up if it were 3 or so doc id's pointing to the same address.

IMO Google's priorities are:- a) Page Content b) Links from related sites and anchor text use of keywords c) Title Tags Not sure what everyone else things?

Another bonus is when you want to update the js or css code you only have to do it in one place...not on every page....probably the biggest plus since most common js and css code is not very long it won't affect the size of the page too much and JS doesn't always have to be at the top of the page......
