Google is not concerned with paid advertorials
Google is concerned with paid advertorials with do-follow links and has been penalizing paid advertorials with do-follow links for at least a year and a half. Probably for longer than that. Google has been algorithmically whacking paid advertorials that are clearly labeled with words indicating their paid nature (advertorial, sponsored, etc.) and that also feature do-follow outgoing links.
The next step is identifying unlabeled advertorials, and I explained a way to do that.
