Sure. I mean, this is something that it’s not just like the sites where it’s coming from that’s a problem, you could have a paid link on a really popular and important website and it’s still a page link.

Yeah, but I mean, it’s not only that, it’s like if you have a really high quality site, but the link is actually buried in an archive that nobody ever visits or nobody ever goes to, then it’s really not a very high quality link at all because it’s just sitting in a dusty old basement hidden away. To me, yeah, you can absolutely have a high quality site with a low quality link. I’m not so sure about the low quality site and the high quality link– that’s kind of an oxymoron.
