Many SEOs To Buy Links In 2022 Despite Google's Webmaster Guidelines


Tim Soulo from ahrefs posted a Twitter poll asking will you pay money to get links in 2022? Sadly, someone spammed the poll but I recreated it and it clearly shows that many, almost half of SEOs, are planning on buying and paying for links in 2022.

Here is the recreated poll:

With 770 results, if you remove the see results option, you see about 53% say they will not pay for links in 2022 but 47% said they will pay for links in 2022.

This is despite Google having a specific guideline against paid links saying “Buying or selling links that pass PageRank is in violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines and can negatively impact a site’s ranking in search results.”

Also, in 2017, Gary Illyes from Google said that buying links is like throwing money out of the window.

Does this surprise you at all?

Google Testing Removing The Estimated Number Of Search Results Again

Seems Google is once again testing removing the estimated number of search results under the search bar. You know, the line that says “About X results in Y seconds” Google is testing removing that again.

We reported something similar in March 2022 and before that in July 2016.

In this case, it seems to be missing when the new topics refinement bar shows up – maybe it is related?

This is what I see without the estimate count but with the new topics bar:

And now with the estimate count but without the new topics bar:

Many noticed this yesterday including Martin MacDonald and Bill Hartzer:

Some even noticed a minimalistic design, by turning off JavaScript:

Google always be testing and sometimes be bugging – I am not sure if this is a test or a bug.
