Will you do paid reviews ?

That's the question being asked by Darren Rose of Problogger.net. This is the question on many posties mind after the Google slapfest penalising many leading sites that were selling links and/or doing paid posts.

From what I've seen, experienced posties are continuing their paid posts even with PR demotions. They are unfazed. As a PPP postie I'm predicting more signups to PPP now with blogs getting new PRs after the latest Google PR update. I have at least 3 friends now who are new posties with PR3 and are writing paid posts like crazy. I think it's safe to say there are many more like them. As an 'old' postie, I will continue writing paid post.

So in essence, Google may have temporarily affected these posties ability to grab higher paid post by degrading PR. However, I with new metrics like Argus coming out, PPP posties have less dependancy on Google.
