OK So According to Google:
Penguin 4.0 is devaluing links instead of demoting a site is an important step to a better relationship with Google, for all marketers and site owners.
Penguin 4.0 counters Negative SEO. Devaluing the links removes the (algorithmic) barb from NSEO.
The Penguin 4.0 move to devalue spam links—as opposed to demoting entire sites—is the best news to come out of Penguin 4 so far. This is what SEOs, business owners, and marketers have wanted from Penguin since day one.
So Truly Most all the links we use in GSA will no longer help with ranking. Google Absolutely knows that GSA SER Is the Most used tool for link spam these days. i myself did a test of blasting over ONE million links to a page i gave ranked on page 2 of google for the main keyword. After more than a week, the page has not budged. Not One spot up or down. Proving that Google is just not counting these type of links any longer as they stated about Pengiun 4.0.
Also These type of links seem to no longer Power Up using Tiered links any longer.
I have been using GSA SER for years and have never seen it be so non effective.
Would like to hear other users experiences after Penguin 4.0.
