Prisoners of War in the Battle for Paid Links

Another blistering post by Michael Gray on Google’s manipulation of web sites into complying with their idea of what the search space should look & act like.

Of course Google don’t want you selling paid links, it eats into their AdWords revenue. Their only penalty (to date) is to lower or remove their PageRank score; traffic remains the same indicating that they still think you’re a good enough site to get the visitors, they just don’t want you earning money from selling advertising unless it’s through them.
