Thank you for your answer. I’ve checked some “startpaginas” and I’ve seen that here seems to be a lot of spam pages, automatically created. I am impressed because these subdomains are created totally automatically, from my point of view.
The “startpagina” subdomains seems to be appreciated by Google.nl. They have PR too !? 🙂
I know that the Google Panda update is not related to links, is more related to the duplicate / scrapped content.
I agree that low quality links cannot add value to a website. Could you recommend me some quality startpaginas from Netherlands ? I have already a list with startpaginas but I am not very sure if the PR is a good metric to follow when I will decide to use them.
