Google set to penalize hundreds of bribing bloggers

Cutts on Twitter - Google anti-spamGoogle is planning on taking action against "hundreds of buyers, dozens of sites, & dozens of spammy writers” that bribe blogs to post links in order to build SEO ranking. Matt Cutts, head of Google's anti-spam effort responded via Twitter to a Gawker story titled Shady Marketing Firms Are Still Quietly Bribing Bloggers.

Blackhat SEO companies are pitching authors directly, and circumventing the website and blog owners. These are not business transactions from high-up the decision making ladder. Google has been in hot pursuit of  link sellers, buyers, networks and brokers that violate it's policies.

The Gawker story mentioned one such network by name--Backlinks.us. The story reveals an email chain that includes examples of other large websites that have utilized the services of Backlinks.us.
