Might be a dumb question but if a website links to your website but uses nofollow links, could it improve ranking if it gets a lot of traffic to it? Or a lot of comments?

Sorry if this is dumb I know Nofollow typical doesn’t affect search but I thought there might be a exception if it get a lot of traffic.

Dear writers, how do you distinguish between genuine and thoughtful feedback, vs. careless and inattentive feedback?

I'm curious to know how others in this sub approach the subject.

On the one hand, all feedback is valuable since it collectively represents the thoughts and criticisms of an average reader. On the other hand, not all feedback is created equal. I've gotten notes from readers who have clearly spent an adequate time on my story, have read every sentence carefully, and have done their best to provide me with constructive criticism. And I've gotten notes from readers who have barely skimmed my story, if that at all.

Strangely enough, I've also gotten feedback that is hard to place in either category. For example, the reader will make some profound remark, but I'll have a hard time finding where exactly that applies in my story. Or stuff like "I don't think this character works in this scene," etc.

I think that as writers it's tremendously important to recognize what advice is good and what isn't.

Can anyone tell me about the Bots that drive traffic to the website!

I mean, I know it is some kind of Black Hat SEO, but if it can drive real users, by new IP on each connection?

It absolutely can be seen on the GA, that users are in the website.

There is dozens of websites that offer such these tools, is that really true and is there any penalty from the Google?

Does google find out that it is the bot or something?

Lightning network is not enough

the lightning network seems super cool solution to scaling, opening and closing payment channels take up space too. Currently with 1mb blocks the main net can handle maybe 7 transactions per second. If we assume a average person does 3 transactions per day, the main net can support about 200k users.

This is speculative at best but with the lightning network bitcoin can support about 50 million users if weassume that average user opens and closes a payment channel two times a year (220 million transactions per year / 4). This feels optimistic too.. So a block size of maybe 200mb + lightning would support 10 billion, which is ridiculous and from what I understand, increasing it compromises the original idea of decentralisation..

So bitcoin is only at beginning of it's journey and these problems don't exist in near future but are there any projects working on further scaling solutions or any ideas about this? Did I do the math right?

Partnering with SEOs

Hi all. Looking for some insight here;

I'm a paid search consultant with 4 years experience and 1M in total ad spend managed. I recently went independent. On top of other marketing strategies, I want to start doing a cold email outreach campaign to SEO companies.

My question is do most smaller SEO agencies (less than 10 employees) have their own in-house PPC person? Is PPC important to them to capture more business or are they just focused on SEO? Assuming they contract work out, what qualities are important to them? Other than the obvious of responsiveness and competence of course :)

Want to make 100$ a month.

Hello, i'm a 19 years old business student who's fluent in 3 languages (English, French and Arabic). I'm looking for a way to RELIABLY make at least 100$ a month. What websites do you suggest ? Currently i'm using Spare5 & Microworkers but the number of tasks on Spare5 is extremely rare (literally got 2$ worth of tasks last week) and Microworkers is kind of slow and not reliable.
