Trying to Fix Backlinking

I've removed the blogroll in an attempt to fix the arbitrary backlinks to my posts from posts on the blogs on my blogroll. Phew! That was a mouthful! Hope that made sense.

The backlinking was getting a little out of hand. It's one thing if I actually agreed or disagreed with the posts on the blogs I read and linked backed and had something relevant to say on my blog, but quite something else if the backlinks just show up for no reason on completely unrelated posts (on IndiaHelps, for example). Sort of like an uninvited guest. Sorry.

I'm thinking I'll just put up a list of the blogs rather than going through Blogger's Blogrolling gadget. Until then, please bear with me.


Yay! There are no backlinks to my latest post, the one above this one. Such a relief!

I've never used blogrolling or backlinks, but can you not turn off just backlinks? Or that just fixes the problem for you, it links back in other people's blogs cos of blogrolling?

Alt, I can turn them off on my site, but it won't prevent backlinks from showing up on other people's sites. :( Blogger is doing something automatic, just don't know how to control it.
