Will adding 1,500 internal links on to a page that appears high in Google effect rankings

Just a quick experiment to see how many links is too many links when they appear on a high ranking web page.
Will adding over 1,500 internal links on to a web page that ranks high in Google have a negative effect on rankings?

I think I need a new car for the V1 SEO number plate

The red is a great colour for the car, but trying to match the website to it always looks pretty naff.

Why does red look so bad on websites :-(

Does anyone know what opstopreason is

I made a blog post last year simply titled opstopreason

For the life of me I can't remember why, but all of a sudden that post is getting loads and loads of visitors, does anyone know what opstopreason is?
What does opstopreason mean? Update: 03/02/15. WOW! Why are so many people searching for opstopreason. I made this initial post about opstopreason back in 2014 and can't even remember why. Now all of a sudden loads of people are searching for it, could someone please comment below to let me know ...

AdSense Publishers Beware

If you are not complying fully to the AdSense terms about displaying an adequate privacy statement on any page that displays AdSense I suggest you get up to speed as quickly as possible.

I suspect the following information will mean Google will have to be a lot stricter about policing  this and will be ejecting people from the AdSense programme who are not complying.

Note: this doesn't just apply to AdSense but all Google products such  Google CSE etc.
I suspect Google will have to be a lot stricter about ensuring AdSense publishers comply with AdSense terms about displaying adequate privacy policy pages.

Special Upgrade Business Directory Listing for number 200,000

Getting closer and closer, so I have decided to switch of all approvals for the next few days.

When I do next approve listings, Business Listing number 200,000 will be revealed and receive a Free Special Upgraded Directory Listing - http://www.uksmallbusinessdirectory.co.uk/
 
UK Small Business Directory Closing in on 200,000 Listings

It looks like my end of February prediction for when UK Small Business Directory obtains its 200,000th listing won't be that far away.

Not bad seeing as over 99% of listings were self submitted by the business owner or a representative of the business.

Especially pleasing, as the last 6 months listings have only been accepted after people have emailed me 1st to obtain  a link to the private submission page.

Not sure what I'm going to do yet, but will probably do something special for listing number 200,000

Google to change privacy policy after ICO pressure

One of the best for a long time?

Got to say, it's episodes like this weeks that make glad I can't resist listening despite everything.

The Hayley, Phoebe, Kate, Roy storyline is truly emotional and there is some lovely acting from Lucy Morris.

I think that it will be Pheobe that will give to Kate what is deserved.  You know, I have always been told that people in glass houses should not throw rocks lest your house gets the boomerang shot in return.  I think Kate will experience the same thing that she has put everyone else through just shortly.....Any thoughts?

Lovely little wildlife park and gardens with lots to see and do. The beauty of Cotswold Wildlife Park is it is compact but without being crammed which enables you to have a pleasant stroll all around with out missing anything. Set in lovely unspoilt grounds even the children's adventure playground blends in nicely as it is mainly wooden climbing frames and slides nestled in the shade of the trees. The restaurant is basic but prices are reasonable, ice creams and drinks don't cost an arm and a leg like comparative attractions. The trip on a miniature train is a must as is the children's farmyard area and the star of the show has to be the playful Asian Small-clawed Otters

Good old traditional butcher who prepares joints to the customers request. Always friendly and provides helpful advice on the best joints to use if ask what is best for a particular meal. Plenty to choose from and the preparation of chestnut stuffed turkey crowns for Christmas is 2nd to none. Nice selection of traditional sausages and in the better weather also supplies ideal barbeque titbits

Great service, great product, great price. I had been putting off getting a new kitchen but then decided at the last minute to go for it. I called in at Howdens in Stratford on the Tuesday, took a couple of samples home, ordered kitchen on Wednesday and it was delivered on the Friday. One length of worktop and 4 or 5 door fronts were out of stock, but I told them my carpenter was booked in for the following Monday and Tuesday so they did some chasing around and got them to me 1st drop on Tuesday morning from another branch. Very pleased with the finished kitchen, the quality is better than I expected and the price was a good £500 lower than I expected. With the saving I had made I decided to get some up stands to match the worktops and a nice pewter coloured glass splash back for behind the cooker and thankfully these were both in stock and ready for collection. The staff at Howdens were very friendly and helpful, I received a price on the same day I dropped in the initial measurements and they also did me some mock up 3d views and scaled drawings so I was sure I was ordering right kitchen. All in all a very pleasant experience with great assistance from friendly knowledgeable staff.

I used M K M Electrical Engineering Ltd to totally rewire my new house in Honington and was very impressed with the service provided.. I have completely refurbished the whole house which meant getting numerous trades in, and as anyone with any experience will tell you, the way these trades work and the reliability of these trades is key. With M K M a simple phone call was all that was needed to arrange them to do the various stages and they always turned up when they said they would, always did a good job and always finished when they said they would. They were always smart, polite, tidy and cleared up after themselves. They went out of their way to help and never moaned about the little extras, like adding a light over a dressing table, adding a mirror/light/shaving socket combination in the bathroom and a couple of extra outside lights. The price was reasonable, they completed the stages before invoicing and supplied the lamps and fittings at cost price. All in all, I had a great, reliable, trustworthy service from M K M Electrical Engineering Ltd

Broadway Hill is the 2nd highest point in the Cotswolds and with Broadway Tower being 55ft tall it means when on top you are the highest point. What's nice about Broadway Tower is the three floors have been divided in to different sections depicting different eras of the tower. One floor is dedicated to previous owner William Morris, another gives a more general history of the tower and it's connections with Capability Brown. From the top you can see 12 counties on a clear day and with high upstands you feel totally safe, even if you don't like heights. The staff are very friendly and will tell you more history of the tower, and it also has a nice little gift shops selling all the usual things you would expect, plus a few you wouldn't "Chocolate coated deer droppings!" Set in a lovely location Broadway Tower is lovely for just a short couple of hours visit and on a lovely windy day it is even nicer.

I used Daniell Plumbing Ltd to completely re plumb and install a new central heating system in my new house at Honington. Everything went like clockwork, they always turned up on time, didn't leave jobs half finished and left everything nice and tidy. They supplied all the materials for the central heating including; cylinder, boiler, raiators, valves and oil tank at a reasonable price, and also supplied the showers and sanitary ware for the downstairs cloakroom at cost price. The pipework was nice and neat and located where it was easy to box in and the bathrooms both look a treat. I would definitely have no hesitation in recommending and using Daniell Plumbing again.

Great Service. It's been a few years since I made some Home Brew Lager but I suddenly had the urge to try my hands at being a brewer again :) I've no idea where all my old kit is so decided to order a little home brew starter kit from Trafford Homebrew. Despite only ordering online on Sunday afternoon I was pleasantly surprised when it turned up today (Tuesday) All very nicely packed and as described. It's all up to me now, if I use it properly I'll be having a drink and toasting Trafford Homebrew in a few months time :-)
