    I suppose they could just look at the list of PPP advertisers and flag them, otherwise, how else? Can you imagine getting your entire brand banned outta Google just because of your associate to PPP?

    What are you gonna do though? Fight Google? By then, it’s too late?

Pay per post is just the tip of the paid-linking iceberg, as can be seen by a quick glance at nearly any website marketplace featuring paid PR-ranking link placement. From Google’s standpoint it make sense – why allow people to buy links that will help their organic performance rather than make those companies buy links in Adwords.

    “Do as I say, not as I Do?”

    Matt- care to comment?
