LoL battle between advertisers: From Smorty

LoL update, this message is copied directly from smorty:

Note: this is NOT an advertisement.


Hello and thanks for all your great work with Smorty.

There have been some recent changes that Google have made with regard to sponsored postings.
Smorty would like to offer you some advice on this issue. Google has primarily targeted PayPerPost member blogs and reduced their Page ranks across the board. Although this WILL NOT REDUCE your rankings or readership, your blog will receive more campaign offers if it has a higher page rank. To prevent any future loss of page rank due to this issue you can take the following steps:

1. Remove all sponsored post tags on each of your posts. Google can follow these tags to determine if you are being paid for posts.
2. Remove any PayPerPost tags on your posts for "hire me" and "review me". Any general affiliate banners are fine to keep.

*Recently Smorty have been filtering through all previous posts made through the Smorty system. We are aware a percentage of bloggers have been removing older posts after they have been paid through Smorty. Please note this is against our rules. We will shortly calculating the totals each blogger have removed and possibly ban their account or remove these amounts from their balance to be paid. Please be sure to follow all blogger rules and FAQ`s to prevent future issues.


I know It does not sound right, seems that it is backstabbing payperpost while preserving themselves.


Keep this a secret~
