TechCrunch reports that always controversial Payperpost has raised $3 million in financing. In case you’€™ve missed it (insert living under rock-thingy here) Payperpost pays blogger to write positive moderated posts about their ‘€œadvertisers’€? products. Yeah, there was a bit of a fuzz about that.
The official announcement for the raised money is due Tuesday, but I’€™m more interested in what Payperpost will do with the cash. Needless to say, they aren’€™t going anywhere in the foreseeable future.
