It's been a rough 24 hours. I had to make an emergency upgrade to a dedicated server for one of my sites to handle an influx of traffic. I got 3 hours of sleep last night, and the rest of the time has been spent being STRESSED OUT. But there's nothing like a couple of SEOs verbally attacking each other to wake me right up.
Unfortunately, I wasn't privy to the original sparring match that took place (which has now been removed from the blog it was on). But Rounds 2 and 3 contain some knockout blows! First I read this from the SEOrefugee blog - Exposing SEO Myths: Inbound Links Hurt where Skitzzo throws a few punches at Aaron Pratt. I then followed a link over to Aaron's response at this post on his blog - Rules for calling others out.
Whew! I felt like ducking just in case I got hit by accident. I'm not going to take sides on this one. I do have my opinions about both the topic in question, as well as the argument that ensued. But I'll keep those to myself, as I don't want to be drawn into this one. Tempting, I admit, but hey, I've got a server to tend to. Don't forget to duck when you read 'em!
