Whatever it is you do, be careful. WordPress <wordpress.org> used their
PageRank 8 (driven by the footer in 100,000+ blogs) to add 150,000
'articles' and then got banned from Google and dropped to PageRank of 0. It
was a different case though because invisible text was involved and AdSense
formed part of these so-called 'articles'.
