Not that I’m one to purchase links, but I thought it was very interesting how they referred to “buy PageRank” and how it can affect the algorithm for ones website.
Has this been around for a while?
There are claims that some big companies in the market are reporting their competitors, or buying links to them in other sites and reporting it.
Here is what Matt Cutts from google has to say about it:
“these reports aren’t being fed directly into algorithms, and are being used as the starting point rather than being used directly”
Also, “individual links can be discounted and sellers can lose their ability to pass on PageRank/anchortext/etc., which doesn’t allow site A to hurt site B”

Hope it helped.
