[quote]Hi Zeus Internet Marketing Robot Users
It has come to our attention that some people believe that Google is
penalizing users of Zeus.
There isn't any fact in this rumor as you can read in Google's
Zeus was driving traffic to web sites before Google was a popular
search engine and Link Popularity was a popular marketing term. Zeus was
designed to be an alternative marketing approach to search engine
marketing, which wasn't helping most web masters get the traffic they
needed. Zeus is software tool that helps any web master easily
establish links to their websites. Links are the major source of
traffic, with return traffic to your link directory, a second source of
traffic. Then it was discovered that because of the links to your web
site, the search engines sent you traffic. One good link can bring you
more traffic than all the search engines combined. Check our Proof
Remember that link marketing is the most important form of Internet marketing.
Search Engine marketing is only one of the subsets of link marketing.
After all, search engine results are only listings of links that most
webmasters have no control over.
If you have concerns, then use the Zeus PRO version and customize
your directory. We have always recommended that you fully customize
your directory to look like an integral part of your web site and only
link to relevant web sites. See the Do's and Don'ts below.
Using the PRO version Templates gives full control of the look and feel
of the directory. Change the themeindex.html name to something else,
and remove all references to Zeus and cyber-robotics if you like. The
HTML in a customized Zeus directory is no diferent than one created
entirely by hand.
To help you create a generic, customized directory, I have created this
Help page as a guideline. http://www.cyber-robotics.

The Do's and Don'ts of Linking
1 ) Create your Zeus directory to be tightly-Themed. DO NOT include
directory listings unless they match the themes or subjects of your web
2 ) Use proper logic and sense when choosing which web sites to ask for
a link. Do not link to junk sites or sites that are trying to trick the
search engines. Only link to quality sites with quality content. Don't
ask sites for a Reciprocal Link unless they have outgoing links or a
3 ) Use good descriptive text and keyword phrases for the Theme
categories describing each Link Directory page. No more than 2 or 3
4 ) Be sure the text words in the link pointing to you from your Link
Partners, contains good keyword phrases that describe your web site.
5 ) Keep the directories clean of 404s or dead links
6 ) Follow these email guidelines: http://www.cyber-robotics.

I never see any sites that have zeus directories in googles results anymore, not just google but any SE's
The zeus moto "we dont need no stinkin' search engines" should be "we aint stinkin listed in any search engines"
That jim guy used to promote this software on various forums and where are his sites now? I never saw the point of this software anyway, I tried it once and decided it would be quicker to use google to find similar sites to link to.

And it IS easier to just use Google to find links. All you have to do w/Google is go down the list--no "training" (GAG me!) required, to get the right, relevant results from Google, either!

I got that email too. Particularly liked this bit:

Now, I wonder why they suggest that ?
Actually, what they say is true - sites using Zeus are not penalised. It's just the links directories that have a PR of 0 and the links from it don't count for anything.
I did love all that stuff about being around before Google was popular (uh..no you weren't mate) and being an alternative to search engine marketing. That's why they never mentioned boosting ranks in SEs through link popularity in any of their promotional stuff then. Oh, they did ? How strange ?
