 Are Honeypots bad for SEO?
Author: T.Hosting   (23 Sep 09 6:36pm)
I just installed the Honeypot script on my website. Will linking to the script give my site a bad ranking, or any sort of bad mark with the search engines?

If this question has been answered already, I apologize. I did a search, but could not find any similar topics.

The short answer is that 1) the folks from Google and other search engines are well aware and supportive of Project Honey Pot; 2) if you follow the linking guidelines we provide then we've been told by them that it will not hurt your site's rank; and 3) in the 5 years we've been running the Project we haven't seen any site with links to honey pots get punished.

There have been some more thorough discussions by people with your same concern elsewhere on the message boards:

Hope that answers your question. Thanks for your help with the Project!

Thank you!

I have posted a topic in my forums with a quicklink and a link to my honeypot. I made an image with a warning to visitors not to click the links and that it was for spambots only. I hope it works.

@T.Hosting What is the result when you did this implementation?

I also like to hide the honeypot link on my website. Would it be negative for SEO?
