Danny Sullivan wrote a very informative post yesterday about the selective PR rollback some sites experienced last week, and makes some astonishing claims -
|So I pinged Google, and they confirmed that PageRank scores are being lowered for some sites that sell links |
|In addition, Google said that some sites that are selling links may indeed end up being dropped from its search engine or have penalties attached to prevent them from ranking well |
|Google stressed, by the way, that the current set of PageRank decreases is not assigned completely automatically; the majority of these decreases happened after a human review. |
Seems like big news to me. Did I miss someone pointing this out already?
