Everyone can forget about the 950 penalty thread which can be closed after reading this... I read this on Matt Cutt's blog and I just shivered all over. Text links aren't cool b/c google is in the business of selling text links. The part that kills me is with the 950 penalty it proves google knows the difference between a natural and paid link, why kill the user who pays for links why not blank the value to neutral a text link that google doesn't receive a % of revenue is bad a text link paid direct to a website which looks identical to the end user Google has a problem with.
