“This is where we messed up,” the company said. “Though any links to our tracks that our fans put on their pages were editorially placed or vouched for by them, in some instances we have fallen short in terms of making sure that the links people post are natural.”
Rap Genius pointed to an example of good content: a post on Beyonce’s new album, followed by a useful list of links to the corresponding tracks. The company also offered an example of what shouldn’t have happened: a post with the best verses of 2013 followed by a list of Justin Bieber links.
The bottom line: Rap Genius is going to request that site owners take down links to the sites that don’t fit well with its editorial content.

Frankly, who does Google think they are? They are the first to get money for links. If advertisers would not pay for links, most link spam, SEO, click hijacking viruses and other side effects would not happen. Google should stop getting paid for links before telling others how to behave.
