Build My Rank (BMR) was a paid article submission site that allowed you to link your other blog articles and raise their rank. Payment was not that high and quadrilions of lazy bloggers and spam sites were using it to get more single direction links to their blogs and affiliate sites. Few days ago Google demoted their page-rank to 0 (Yes, Zero) and removed their domain from search results. In a result, the site owners are closing business. Because Google are starting to kill sites with too much artificial links (and other over optimised for SEO sites) is it possible HubPages to be hit?
