The Blog community has been hit with the news that the Word Press website has been selling space to companies in order for the companies to gain higher Google ratings (and hence more business) as all the Blogs using WP invariably link to the WP website. Here’s what El Reg has to say on the subject.
After RiotACTs recent near death experience we’ve been puttering along in the WordPress zimmerframe of recovery for the interim but are now in a quandry as to whether we should dump it cold for selling out and corrupting the internet way of life and go with something else. Or do we say they’ve learned their lesson and won’t do it again (until the next time someone offers them lots of money, for which you can’t really blame them)?
What do you our readers feel about the issue?
