I read this article today and felt I had to share since it make me chuckle. Recently, Google Japan was caught buying blog posts in a promotion campaign for one of its features and was punished by Google. As per Google’s guidelines, paid-posts campaigns are a big no no! While the punishment doesn’t seem like much, Google.co.jp PageRank was lowered to a 5 from a 9, at least they don’t feel that they themselves are above their own rules.
