That being said, it didn't stop BuzzFeed from publishing an article named One Of The Web’s Most Prolific Online Marketing Writers Has Been Promoting His Clients In Articles For Forbes, Entrepreneur, And Inc. Magazine. So the SEO industry had a blast with it. I want to share some fun tweets:

This whole thing reminds me of when Google had to respond to blog bribes story from The Outline.
