    Google penalise link buyers? Well they penalised Google.jp


    http://www.searchnewz.com/blog/talk/sn-6-20090212GoogleJapanPenalizedbyGoogle.html

    Google.jp (Japan) paid some bloggers for promotional posts.. Google head office find out and give them a penalty, dropping PR from 9 to 5.

    Crap linkbait if you ask me... strange the Google and Matt Cutts would be so public to report these things on a bunch of second rate blogs... but not on their own.

    When has Google's blogs been nothing but links to 3rd parties...

    googlejapan.blogspot.com/2009/02/google.html

    ...I'm amazed... are there "official Google blogs for each country?"

    Where's my googlecanada.blogspot.com ?

    Agree with Fathom, Thats just a Public relation Stunt..

    If it was so, do they want to tell that the one who sells links is safe, but the one who buys is under the scanner??!!

    Point taken... I can understand that each country has their own Google team... but it's still Google so an internal matter... and anything seen like 9 to 5 is pure speculation... and the links from the post that "suggest something" are to somewhat unrelated information like Matt Cutts post on buying links from 2007 as oppose to "right now in 2009" and about sites unrelated to Google as oppose to google.jp.

    ...and Matt's suggested twitter comments... news flash... Matt's MUST BE taking cash on the side to twit headlines news like that so blogger and post a multitude of speculation.

    ...someone should blog about taking bribes for reporting interest news.
