On December 16th, we were told to expect a response on Jeremy selling text link advertisements on his site. Remember the whole scandal? I named it Google Fights Paid Links & Yahoo Defends Paid Links which kind of annoyed Jeremy but it did make for a good title. Anyway, as expected, Jeremy pulled the ads from his site. Well not 100%. In his entry today he named Sponsored Links Update he said he would only put ads up with the nofollow attribute, without it, no text ad.
Does that end this big story? I think so.
