Remember the time when SEO’s were going crazy? But what about this, could this be crazier? FYI, The Google Checkout blog has a PR of 8 (Just imagine where a link there would take you!) and “what if”? they are selling links with YOUR desired anchor text. Oh yea, Remember, they give deep links too ;)
Now take a look at this snip from the Google Checkout blog:
In addition, Google Checkout helps make it even easier for consumers to find us when they search for items like Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls by displaying the Google Checkout badge next to our search results. Ultimately Golfballs.com has seen an increase in revenue through the combined efforts of Google Product Search and Google Checkout.
Smells like a paid Review for me. Heh…
So how much was the review then? Any takers? Well, honestly, if they sell paid reviews for even thousands of $$$, I’ll bet LOADS of seo’s would buy. *Drooling for the permanent PR 8 link*
I thought Google wants us to be that Goody good boy, then again, why did they do that? Or as Aaron would say “What a bunch of hypocritical garbage”?
