A catch phrase will go here soon.

Use PayPerPost, Get You Blog Bounced from Google



As I predicted Google is going to DEVALUE blogs that participate in PayPerPost. Matt Cutts says this in a comment:

  • “Google wants to do a good job of detecting paid links. Paid links that affect search engines (whether paid text links or a paid review) can cause a site to lose trust in Google.”

This is not shocking because Google already tries to figure out the difference between editorial and the clearly-labeled paid links on websites. What did you think they would do with covert marketing!?!?!? Covert marketing from folks like PayPerPost is really evil, and Google don’t like the evil. Frankly, no one likes to be deceived–do you?

Game over.

Thank you Google for helping hold the line against the forces of evil that want to ruin our beautiful city.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
