    Just watch this video and you'll understand.



    To buy a link or not to buy a link, that's the question.

    Actually it's pretty straight forward what this self-serving SOB is saying, link-selling sites get demoted and the positive effect of their links to your site get deprecated. However, there is no negative penalty.

    If that is true, this is a good news for all link buyers :)

    If that's the case as in the video, then it's good news that no negative impact will incur on the buyers' sites but the links will eventually become worthless.

    Matt Cutts is always vague since he can do nothing with all the spam Google absorbs every second. They can't beat us, so they send this Matt Cutts clown to talk bullshit with us.

    the fact he's always vague just strengthen the point he doesn't have anything concrete to say, so he stays vague with his statements so he can look smart and get way with that.

    Basically what he's saying is if they catch anyone engaged in the same business as them (text advertising) they'll penalize you, google is the only business allowed to engage in text advertising otherwise you're considered a blackhatter :)

    The thing what annoys me, is they Google and him act is if they control the internet, in their videos, guidelines etc. Google should be ignored, because why should we care about their business model? If everyone sells links, and passes Page Rank, then what are they going to do about it? Punish every site? Then their results will be terrible, I don't see how this constant political campaign is sustainable from Google. They like to think they are keeping us shackled with their rules, when in reality Google should be ignored.

    I got it, you won`t get penalized, just that link won`t have any value. So from a high pr contextual link it will get to have the value of a comment blast to a thread that has 1million OBL or sumthing :)

    I don't know how anyone can watch his videos for more than 10 seconds. It's like everyone is tuning in to watch a train wreck that never happens. How many times can you be promised good information, watch a video and receive nothing? Over and over, almost weekly someone posts another "revelation" from Mr. Cutts that doesn't contain a single fact in the whole video.

    The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting...

    G stand this voicebox out on public display in the hope that he will be able to convince people that G are an honest and transparent SE treating everyone and every company the same...

    He comes over each and every time as a self serving muppett just bullshitting at all times to protect and defend G - as all folks can see he is just the hired hand...

    Google will penalize you for link buying if it's incredibly apparent, or if they out a network (like BMR) and your links are all over the network websites.

    Otherwise this video is true, you will lose the value/Pagerank that you received if they discount a link selling website. Which in turn can reduce your rankings because that value is now lost.
