Can a Blog Roll Hurt Your Google Rank?

google and blogrolls

It’s something I’ve wondered for quite some time.  After all, Google wants “some” external links but not a “lot” of external links.  So if you have a long blogroll, would it not hurt your Google rankings?

How many times have I not put something on one of my sites because I was afraid of what Google might do.  Too many.  After all, Google rules the internet.

Recently I started to poke around the blogs I read (yes, that’s you) and many of you not only have blogrolls, but you have higher Google page rank.  So your blogroll can’t be hurting, correct?

I’m white hat.  Always have been.  And you know what else I am?  Forgetful.  I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have been tooling around on the net and thought, “Oh no, I forgot about so-and-so’s site!”  It’s like realizing you haven’t called an old friend in quite some time.

So I’m gonna go to that blogroll cliff… and JUMP.

If you read my blog, I want you on the list.  My biggest fear is I am going to forget someone.  Then that someone will look at my blogroll and say, “Whah?  I’m not on it?”

Help a forgetful girl out.  If you have a blog, please leave your link and the title you want in a comment below.  Or simply put the link as your URL, but give me the name you want as your title.

And while you are at it, do you have your own blogroll?  Or have you ever had one and taken it off?  What are your thoughts?

P.S.  Yes, my stupid theme is still broken from the new WordPress update.  WOOT.
