Advertorial Paid Links

Many people have been asking me about Advertorial Links so I have collected some to show as examples of suspected paid advertorial links.

 

I also find it interesting that they linked to the homepage rather than the bademoden category page. This possible Blackhat SEO Strategy appears to be focused on passing PageRank.

Reasons for Suspecting Backlink as Paid Advertorial:

1. Article content is extremely general and far from news worthy.

2. DoFollow Link

3. No Sponsored or Paid Statement

 

On May 29, 2013 Matt Cutts, Head of the Web Spam Team at Google, issued a warning about paid advertorial links.
