  1. Google is on a dangerous path that may put them in Bankruptcy-Restriction of Trade under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act (15 U.S.C.A. § 1 et seq.) Why would Google want to restrict paid links? Because they want to control all advertising revenue & dictate how you run your business! Links are how companies build brand awareness, increases sales and grow businesses on the web. Don't listen to Google just connect with good distribution channels & you won't have to worry about Google again.
