Tailrank Blocks PayPerPost Bloggers

200701011442We had the unfortunate task of blocking some spam today:

Today Tailrank had the unfortunate task of blocking a few weblogs from Tailrank’s index due to link spamming.

These were PayPerPost bloggers linking to Sproose which purchased a PayPerPost campaign to astroturf their release.

We have no problem with bloggers selling ads and trying to make money but this type of linking behavior is essentially spam.

We’re willing to reinstate these blogs if they’ll migrate to using rel=”nofollow” for future PayPerPost sponsored posts. For example, nearly all links in this post use rel=”nofollow” to avoid confusing memetrackers and search engines.
