At the end of his article, Robert Clough of Search Engine Guide asks some terrific questions that he and the SEG staff have to consider:
"Are we willing to risk losing the traffic Google sends simply because we dont buy into this crazy notion? Will we nofollow every paid link just because Google demands it? At this point, I dont know. Its a decision that will be made based on what is best for, and with the input of, our readers, advertisers, contributors and employees."
All of the other sites in the same situation as Search Engine Guide also have to consider these questions. Bow down to Google, or not?
I, for one, would like to encourage Robert and everyone else to be open about the decisions you all end up making on this issue. Directly or indirectly, your decisions will affect all of us in some way.
I look forward to further articles and posts, not about what Google did, but about how the online publishing community responds.
