Good advice about links to link-farms. In SEO, there is definitely guilt by

However, Google is the only search engine right now that DOES deep crawl
sites. The reason Inktomi and others have paid-submission programs is that
they will never get to the SECOND level of dynamic content. Most of them
will crawl the first level of dynamic pages, but they won't follow a dynamic
link FROM a dynamically-generated page. ALL our dynamically-generated pages
are indexed by Google. Googlebot is on our site daily spidering.

When I interviewed Google in May, they specifically said they considered
doorway pages (which is what was described) to be spam. Inktomi, Ask, and
the others would rather have you use their paid-inclusion programs, which
will permit you to index your dynamic pages.
