    Don't you think that infographics are a little over-done now? Too many people are creating them. Perhaps it's time to move on since they're not as effective as they used to be...

    Think I read somewhere over the past week that Cutts was looking at devaluing the Infographics link juice since it is overused/abused now by SEO's....can't remember where, maybe Search Engine Land....

    Cutts said that a couple of months ago in an interview with Eric Enge. It looks like it is on their hit list.
