Excerpt: In Google's latest blatant exhibition of ridiculousness, Matt Cutts has now created an informal way to report paid links.  Matt, of course, like Mr. Ahmadinejad over in Iran, blames it on the Brits:"One thing I heard at SES London was that people wanted a way to report paid links specifically."Damn those Brits.  Damn them to hell!So here's how to report paid links:1.  Sell your soul.2.  Report it just like spam with subject "paidlink."Matt does claim its only to collect data to dogfood some algorithmic approaches; but I don't buy it.  If he wanted to do that, he'd just scrape text-link-ads.com…

The book is on schedule for April 17.  Some people inquired about that as well.I will be blogging again soon.  For now, I'm on a…
