    According to Matt Cutts, Google just took out thousands of link sellers. I wonder how much of this is true. Maybe he is referring to SAPE. I wonder. Has anyone seen anything?

    It is probably true. I know everyone here doesn't like cutts and I feel the same way most days, but at the same time, he usually isn't full of shit like most people think.

    everything going good, none of my sites nor clients sites have dropped, just constantly increasing. I personally think matt is just trying to put people in fear of "black hat" seo.

    I've been testing out ghost ranks on a throwaway site of mine just for experimentation and the rankings shot up today. I was on page 5-8, but this morning all my keywords were on page 1-2.

    Good to see that the link sellers here used this as a way to clear their service's name. lol

    I guess we will see what the deal is here in a few days when Penguin 2.0 rolls out.
