The level of idiocy posted on this forum following a Google update is mind-numbing. Spend some time on some Russian SEO forums and you will see that it is not just SAPE that was effected by this recent update. It was Miralinks, SEOPult, GGL, WebEffector, etc (and all those other "top secret" paid Russian networks lolz). This is actually good news believe it or not. It means that Google has figured out a way to footprint this type of link and devalue them/the sites that they are coming from. Sape will be quick to adapt to change up the way links are displayed and change their footprint. There are a couple things to figure out going forward.... Is this an online filter that is going to be constantly running? Or is this an offline filter that will be ran periodically. Contextual foreign paid link networks should be exempt from this considering the masses are utilizing the standard footer/sidebar options.
