I put up my first blog up about 3 days ago after having joined a 30 day online marketing course. We are 12 days into the course. I used a service recommended by the moderator called WordPressdirect.com. It's a one button submission service. We were discussing getting indexed by google on the forum there tonight. Someone brought up that it's very important to check the footer of our blogs for disguised links. Something about hidden links can have a negative effect on getting indexed by Google (which I have NOT been so far)anyway I checked the tiny links at the bottom of my blog and sure enough 4/5 of them are links to German (I think) web sites. Is there a way to get rid of these funky links? My blog location is http://www.deepseafishingnj.net
P.S. I have been to a number of social bookmarking sites like Digg, propeller, twitter etc..and also built a squidoo lens and linked from a couple of sites to the blog in an effort to get indexed.
