Barry Schwartz Changes Paid Links to No Follow

Barry Schwartz, renowned seo guru and the man behind Search Engine Roundtable has been selling links on his site for years, even before the no follow attribute was developed. 

Barry had accepted openly that his site sells links without the no follow attribute. But, recently, Barry changed up his mind due to a drop in traffic as a result of selling links on his site under "Sponsored Links". Now, all the advertised text links go with a no follow attribute in order to save the site from the effects of link selling.
