Pay Per Post Smackdown?

Insuremeblog reports in a post entitled Pay-Per-Post Reviews Targeted By Google – More Carnage to Come that blogs in the PPP network have had their PR zeroed. A few blogs I see in this PPP directory show PR but some of them mention a lower PR than they used to have. The post references a post in the Izea blog, Google Goes after the Everyday Blogger, which clarifies that only some of their bloggers were affected. Curiously, the PPP home page is fluctuating PR between a grey bar and PR6. A PR correction could be on its way.

Andy Beard’s blog has a few posts and comments on this topic.

I don’t buy or sell links, so the situation is of curiosity value to me, but I can empathise with business advertisers who could find it difficult to get quality links without any help. I don’t recommend buying links because Google is clearly out to penalise any page that gives the impression of selling paid links.
