Google Buying Links To Their Own Website

Post date: Feb 22, 2017 4:45:59 PM

A while back I saw that Google (or their agents) was buying links to promote its Local Guides program (a.k.a. free labour for their search engine). There is more than 1 paid non-'nofollowed' link from http:// (I've deliberately not hyperlinked) which does not comply with Google's own guidance on paid links.

Again like their web scraping, it's don't do as we do, do as we say...
