    Is there content better then any of the rest of us? I doubt it...
    That would be a matter of opinion for the visitor. They'll certainly be marketed a lot better.

    I keep returning to the Huffington Post and I get the feeling that the HP is a master of blogging seduction! Do I ever get anything valuable from my visits!? Not really, the news used is already 'out there'! But hell, something about being Number One sure attracts the curious, and I'm one of them!

    Huffington may huff and puff but by God it has INFLUENCE!

    Google dropped the PR of the homepage on the toolbar from 7 to 2. I removed the ads, requested reinclusion, and it went back up to 6 the next month. Google *will* penalize all link selling that isn't marked nofollow, even if it's relevant and clearly marked as ads.

    It's easy enough to detect groups of links that are likely ads and check if they have the nofollow attribute or not.

    Google also employs a team of human reviewers that check sites in their index.

    Google Webmaster Tools also has a link to report someone else for selling links.

    I knew about the link to report such sites, but wasn't aware of the google team who check on sites. Makes you wonder how many are in the team, as that's a hell of a lot of investigating to do.

    You are right, if you mark a group of text links (grouped together) and mark them as "sponsors", "ads" and such; you will get penalized even if they are relevant. I think the trick is NOT to mark them as ads and group them together.
    Actually its' not that simple, there are a lot of factors that goes into consideration, when it comes to text link ads. The best practice for newbies would be to NOT sell text link, if they don't know what they are doing; considering they care about Google rank.

    For others wanting to know more about "nofollow", "pagerank" and Google position on "text link ads"; this blog post entry from Google webmaster blog would be of interest: Here

    My pleasure Christina! I still think that Boing Boing wins hands down against the rest! It doesn't seem to be as politically motivated as some! Refreshing!

    Of course 99.99% of these blogs will have nofollow in there comments. Dofollow blogs with good alexa and page rank are hard to find. But surely if you place good comments in these blogs you can get tens of visitors to your site daily through every comment.

    Please read first. As already discussed (second post, how could you miss it?), these are not do-follows.
