there's an article on searchengineland at the moment which tells how google's "zapped another link network" and "several thousand link sellers are hit"
ive never really understood what is so bad about selling links. sure, we all know that google thinks its bad, but why is it bad?
what is the difference between selling ad space promoting a site, and selling a text link promoting a site. not much. but google said it was bad because it messes up their link algo, and basically wiped out a legitimate business
