Google AdSense to be Running a Paid Reviews Program?

Shoemoney blogged that Google AdSense might be running a paid reviews service in the near future. The email is unconfirmed and there's no comment from the Google AdSense team yet, but forum members are already suspecting that it's going to happen.

The question is: how? If the rumor is true, will Google require "nofollow" on all these links? (You'd think so.) How about redirected URLs? (Possibly.)

People still find it funny:

haha about time google will clearly state they're selling links.

I'm thinking this email has little credibility (just like Jeremy does), but it would be interesting to see if Google ends up monetizing on something that people want and need.

Forum discussion continues at DigitalPoint Forums.
