I'm not sure if mentioning service product names is prohibited here, so I'll pitch my question as best i can.
There are some well known network systems out there that semantically match content with bloggers needs for republishing, via the use of CMS plug-ins on most of the major systems. The benefit to publishers is that the bloggers will link back to the orginating articles , some PR might be extended, it's claimed, creating authority opportunities.
There are claimed to be 100,000's of quality websites reciprocating on the system, and likely the plug in leaves some traces in the code for Google to pick up, as well as the risk of duplicated content and patterns for Google to penalise or filter.
So my questions is, assuming you are familiar with the system, do you consider this technique a risk, given Penguin. It's not really freely given editorial is it, but it's tempting ?
You know how much Google hates link schemes. Any thoughts ?
