Link Shield, protection against the Google Tax

 Link Shield

Next September will begin to apply the fee known as Rate Google. In what consists is that if you link a website giving some information about what is in it (summary or mention), you have to pay a fee. In the event that the fee is not paid, they could be sanctioned with a fine ranging from € 300 to € 30,000.

In theory, no Spanish page that is linked, can waive this fee , But what is the problem? That only the members of AEDE and CEDRO will share the benefits. For example, any site that copied WordPress Help, should pay that fee to AEDE and CEDRO, but the owner of WordPress Help would not see even one euro, since he is not a member of these associations. But do not forget that they are going to start with the associates, since charging them all, for everything, is sure to bring them many problems.

Next September, this new law will be put into operation if no one turns back or prevent it, which nobody knows, at that moment they will begin to look for backlinks to the associates and to send requests for the rate.

What can we do? Well, the solution is to eliminate all links to the members of these two associations, but it is clear that taking into account that there are about 86 members, it can be complicated. If you have comments open, like the vast majority, even more complicated, and if you use BuddyPress or bbPress, it is impossible to manage, since how many users may have made mentions to partner pages?

The solution goes through the use of the free plugin Link Shield . This plugin will automatically remove all the links you have to these associations in the entries, comments, BuddyPress, bbPress as in all sub sites of a WordPress Multisite installation, well, thanks to this free plugin you can save yourself a scare of thousands of euros.

The time to install and activate it, is now since the backlinks should disappear so they can not find you in September. If you wait for the implementation of the law, it may be too late.

The operation of this plugin is very simple, it is installed, it is activated and ready, no necessary configuration, although in future versions it will come with surprises. At the moment you activate it, all the links to the associates that are in entries, comments, BuddyPress activities or bbPress forums, will be deleted, please note, they will not be deleted from the database, they will not be shown. At any time you can disable this plugin and everything will remain as it was before its activation.

Remember, the no install it now and activate it, it may mean that in September you regret it or you are safe at 100 % that in any part of your site there is a link to one of those 86 websites? I would not play it.

If you use JetPack and the module of Share that add icons from which to spread your publications in the main social networks you will have already noticed that appears counter on the button of each network indicating the number of times that have been shared .
