    Hi all,

    I have checked this plugin and see that the developer was added a link to his own website promotioning a blog post in spanish without notice the users of this plugin of that update, because in the older versions it doesn't have the hidden link.

    Also, Google mark that like a Black Hat SEO using that kind of techniques. I have a list of a LOT of weblogs that contains the outgoing link to the developer that doesn't have any kind of relation with the plugin itself, take a look:

    As I know, will be honorable that the developer shows in the changelog the changes that could made to the plugin in order to warn the users about that kind of updates that uses by his own utility and that can penalize the other websites using this plugin because are linking that page.

    Any ideas if we can report that kind of plugins to Automattic or something else in order to delete it from the official WordPress page?
