Imperfect tools for an imperfect world

Interesting perspective but I’m not so sure this is a good idea. First, just because a tool isn’t perfect doesn’t mean it’s not useful. Two (and more importantly) you offer no alternatives here. Third, yes, I agree there is a flaw in the way some shared links are tagged but to me that’s more of an indication of an opportunity in the market. Hopefully, AddThis or similar will sort it out soon.  And given your logic it sounds like URL shorteners are a no no as well.

Speaking for myself, I’ve grown a bit tired of emarketers, social media gurus, etc. not measuring their “marketing”. And now you’re actually promoting that idea? Really?

Finally, for an SEO site I’m a bit surprised you picked *those* three examples in the “Just try adding” bit up top. Maybe I’m just being too picky? Also, I think the canonical tag would have been worth mentioning somewhere in there, no?
