  • Sakib Shadman: Richard Hearne When you phrase it that way, the answer seems super obvious but yes, can having this paid link w a SUPER HIGH BOUNCE RATE negatively affect my site?

  • Richard Hearne: The question you might want to ask is:

    Can having a paid link negatively affect your site? I`d say the best answer is that this activity has a non-zero probability of causing negative outcomes.

  • Sakib Shadman: Richard Hearne Yeah I figured boss. But is it because it`s paid or the bad bounce rate?
