The Panda update seems to punish too many backlinks from comments on other blogs, etc. and is also against HP TOS if it is spammed. So it seems Google likes links directly from blog posts themselves rather than the comment links.
This has resulted in another stream of income for my blogs. I have received several requests to place a short paragraph with a link at the end of one or two of my older blog posts. The companies pay $10 or so for the links. They write the short paragraph. I've been paid over $200 in the last few months from this alone. I am curious if other bloggers are benefitting from this as well.
Note: I always check where the link is going. No porn or other AdSense TOS restricted sites allowed. So far, all requests have come from ligitimate businesses working to build links.
That is really interesting. I have a blog right now, but it is still young. right now I am working on stepping away from a sub domain name to my own domain name, but I am slacking a little. Thanks for the info though. It seems as though bloggers have not been to affected from the new update. I think I am going to begin sharpening my blog and updating it more frequently.
Smanty, the action is all on the tax blogs. My other blog have not had offers.

The new Google Panda update has hurt sites than contain internal links. I have a lot of these, to my own hubs in the same niche. Would it be a good idea to get rid of these?Personally, I like internal links when they...
