    Heres a Scary Thought About Paid Link Building

    I was talking to someone who hinted that google are quietly getting their hands on sites that sell links to further penalise sites that buy links
    crazy sounding i know but what an easy way to find them out lol
    dont have any details or proof so treat as hear say for now unless you know something different
    anyone heard a rumour

    not seen anything myself but imagine the knock if google were to buy a big site then look at links bought like a major directory thast offer paid and free links then penalise all the sites that paid
    with recent news i wouldnt be surprised if they did this

    You know -- Once you step out of the distorted world-view of Google's bulls*t, I believe what they call 'paid links' is called ADVERTISING by normal people. Aren't Banner Ads 'paid links'?

    Goog THRIVES on Fear. Uncertainty. Doubt. I PROFITS on it. Of course the unspoken 'Safe Rule' is that AdWords isn't PAID LINKS, It's the ONLY SAFE way to buy links. Buy AdWords links. You know so you don't get 'found out' and 'punished'.

    I consulted the webmaster tools to see if I could find an answer.. I'll quote a few lines:

    A site's ranking in Google search results is partly based on analysis of those sites that link to it. Both the quantity and, more importantly, the quality of links count towards this rating.
    That being said:

    Some SEOs and webmasters engage in the practice of buying and selling links that pass PageRank, disregarding the quality of the links, the sources, and the long-term impact it will have on their sites.
    The information can be found here : Webmaster tools, as well as the Big G's standpoint on paid links. Hope this helps.

    It surely can't be a myth if Google talks about it themselves. The webmaster guidelines are generally full of information that a site owner can use to make sure that their sites are not impacted by their scans and panda updates etc.
