Vanessa Fox in the Google official Webmaster Central Blog announces the introduction of a Paid Links reporting form. This follows after many webmasters asked for a way to report paid links.

Vanessa Fox writes, “Today, in response to your request, we're providing a paid links reporting form within Webmaster Tools. To use the form, simply log in and provide information on the sites buying and selling links for purposes of search engine manipulation. We'll review each report we get and use this feedback to improve our algorithms and improve our search results. in some cases we may also take individual action on sites.

If you are selling links for advertising purposes, there are many ways you can designate this, including:

  • Adding a rel="nofollow" attribute to the href tag
  • Redirecting the links to an intermediate page that is blocked from search engines with a robots.txt file”
  • Read guidelines to ensure the links you buy or sell are or breaking rules stipulated by Google.
