After an attempt for a period of time to ignore links as a signal or ranking factor in their algorithm, Russian search engine Yandex has announced that they will be reincorporating links within their algo. Yandex will also bbeing use links as both a positive and negative signal, similarly to Google does with Penguin.

not suprising

The entire web comes down to markup content and links , can't ignore a third of the web...what would be curious about is what would happen if they turned the link signal back on but turned of anchors completely, would relevancy suffer?
