    I'm so sad to hear this! I just got started with him and was on a roll. I was afraid of this happening one day though, with the way Google frequently changes their index.

    Thanks for posting this, but I'm still really upset to lose a fast paying Requester like this.

    Does anyone know similar writing jobs from ethical requesters like John?

    There are 3 other major writing Hits. Crowdsource, Leger and Justin Gunther. Leger and Gunther are closed to new qualifications but I believe Crowdsource is still adding newbies.

    Since when is running a link farm ethical?

    Now, he may have paid you well - but his core business runs against Google’s guidelines.

    Is this not what he was doing?

    Hmm that Google webmaster's link was pretty educational. I knew Google changed their index from time to time but had no idea building crosslinking sites like that was a violation of their webmaster guidelines. SEO is a huge mystery to me. I'm ranked #1 for a few terms on my blog, and yet I have exactly zero people linking to me.

    By ethical I meant paying people above peanuts. I was able to get six to eight of these done an hour.

    I know there are a lot of really big affiliate outfits that do what he was doing on a larger scale, because I see their ads from time to time. I wonder if they've been hurt the same way his business was.

    Oscar Smith and Matt Doumar are pretty prompt in their payments. Smartsheet too.

    This may or may not be permanent. There are other link farm sites that are changing up the way they operate in order to not get hit by Google. BMR *may* come back, but I'm not holding my breath
