No Reprieve For PayPerPost Bloggers
PayPerPost Bloggers still holding out hope for a reprieve from Google and crossing their fingers to see if Google with show some mercy and restore some of their page rank- which was wiped out last October.
PayPerPost is a service where bloggers are paid to review a site in their blog post. The controversy is over whether or not these links- which have no “nofollow” tags are advertising or link selling. Google thinks they are paid links and punished posties by giving them Page rank zero on sites they thought might be posting these kind of reviews.
Looking at posts on the PayPerPost there are many disappointed bloggers.
Not only did bloggers not get their page rank back- but many sites that were missed in last update had their page rank reduced to zero.
Looking at the PayPerPost forums reality does seem to be setting in with many bloggers using PayPerPost who were left gobsmacked last fall and posts seem to be of reconciliatory nature and acceptance rather than anger and dismay.
