Google Selling PageRank 7 Links on Domain

Nov 29, 2007 • 7:13 am | comments (26) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Link Building Tips & SEO

With all the debate and discussion around paid links these days, some DigitalPoint Forums members are wondering how Google can get away with selling links that are not nofollowed.

That is right, if you want a PageRank 7 link directly form, all you need to do is buy a Google Mini Search Appliance for $1,995 per year (or $166 per month) and you can get a link on this page.

Should Google slap on a nofollow tag on those links? Personally, I don't think they have to. But I think Matt would think otherwise.

Not to point anyone specifically out, but it seems like some SEO companies are already savvy to this:

I am not the first to point this out, Andy reported this way back in June of this year.
