I added a business to scoot a couple of months ago and today I got a phonecall asking if I wanted to upgrade.
I said no, purely on the basis of me despising coldcallers...
But what they said interested me. They claimed they were in partnership with 525 directories. If I upgraded, all these links would be turned into do-follow links if I upgraded membership.
I instantly thought 525 do-follow links within a week or two... that cannot be right?
I then said, well my websites follow/dofollow ratio would look incredibly unhealthy, would it not?
They then replied if it was spammy links, yes, but we're partners with google.
I can see the benefits of scoot, but am I right in thinking upgrading would absolutely destroy my website?
