I have been doing some blog hoping and It seems that there has been buzz in the blogosphere , I have not seen much talk in the Pinoy Blogosphere but I think we have also to take a look at this.

Search Engine Land just published an article titled “Official: Selling Paid Links Can Hurt Your PageRank or Rankings on Google.” The article illustrates some high profile sites like the Stanford Daily, which saw its PR drop from 9 to 7, supposedly due to the the practice of selling text links.
Whooaa.. I just started selling links at my blogspot site thru Digital Point Forum because now I am eligible to get paid via PayPal, then suddenly I will read this kind of News, How sad..
But I do believe, that right now Google is into the big blogs and I don’t think it is automated at the moment.
By the way there has been news that Google will not update the PR already, so what else might be affected ? SERP Perhaps..Ooopps How scary….
And will this affect the Text Link Ads business where I just get my first ever payment.
What’s your take on this?
