We presently have 2,000 inbound links from one lawyers directory. We want to reduce that to 300 or less. What kind of hit will I take because of this? I'm thinking not much since most of the pages have a PageRank of 0. Also, doesn't Google only count 2 anyway?

Please help. Thank you.

Why would you want to reduce your amount of links? It seems counter intuitive to me.

You can't tell anything by looking at your toolbar PageRank either, so don't base anything around that.

I don't want to hurt us by reducing the amount of links, yet paying what is pay is not cost effective. The majority of the listings get no traffic and have not converted into leads.

Just simply too much money to spend on something that hasn't proven itself over the past couple years.

I kinda feel as though I'm dammed if I do and dammed if I dont.

Oh you want to stop paying for links?

If they're not bringing you any traffic, I'd definitely remove them. It shouldn't effect anything.

It's just like any advertising that you pay for. If it does not show results you would stop it.

I always thought that more links usually better for higher rankings..I guess not!

Sometimes it works like that, and often it doesn't
