   For sure this is getting OT for IC... I don't mind if others don't.
Those links are due to AdWords which I have dropped but the
links stay there. So what happened was a decently high PR page
such as epinions picked up my AdWord and then created a link
to that page only. It is true you need inbound links to be searched
more frequently by google but those incoming links need to rank
