    A clamp down on paid links - I dread to think what this will mean for PayPerPost, ReviewMe, Sponsored Reviews et al. The future looks gloomy.

    No, AdSense ads are delivered by JavaScript, so not links in the Google sense of the word.

    People should start to submit all paid links like adwords and the other big companies... After a while of thinking I think this is just dumb (to not use a more offensive word).

    Hopefully google will take notice of the comments on Matts blog, its stupid that they can count paid likes as spam when they make all there money from advertising themselfs!!!

    I have a site that I sell text link adds on, ok it only makes $30 a month from them but this pays my monthly hosting costs for all of my sites!!!

    Google are getting stupid and starting to become the next M$ by tightening there grip on everything internet advertising related.

    He is writing about the paid links that send some PR
    The paid traffic links should be marked as such by some of the methods he outlined in another post :

    http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/hidden-links
    " If you want to sell a link, you should at least provide machine-readable disclosure for paid links by making your link in a way that doesn’t affect search engines. There’s a ton of ways to do that. For example, you could make a paid link go through a redirect where the redirect url is robot’ed out using robots.txt. You could also use the rel=nofollow attribute."


    Test now implement later. either way this will come

    The whole point of small-scale advertisers buying links is to try and boost their PR/SERPs - using rel=nofollow kind of defeats the object. Paid links will become almost worthless unless they are on a high traffic site.

    Looks like Google's search algorithm has failed badly, now they want people to change billions lines of html codes so that their algortihm performs better.
    Think of how your oppostion can knock you off by reporting paid links for every link that you have got in your websites.

    Because PR is what makes the world go around, think about it without PR we would just be basing results on, on page keywords. And thus the results would just be a spam fest.....
