Organic Search / SEO Tips
Should I Buy 300 One Way Links for $397!
Thursday, September 25, 2008
I don't usually pay a lot of attention the ads that pop up in my GMail, but this one was pretty funny.

I was chatting with @steph_woods about her entry to the SEO business and how she likes Kelowna. I opened the email with her direct message in it and found this PPC ad:


(If you can't see the picture it says: 300 Permanent Links $397, Permanent one way links $1.4/link. Buy 300 one way links for $397 Now!)

Let's be clear. Buying links is a bad idea. Selling links is a bad idea. Advertising the fact that you're selling links on Google is an idea so bad I had to use a thesarus to find a word to describe it, and then I couldn't use the word because it was so bad. Perhaps Matt Cutts has a special word for special people like this, but I'm at a loss.


Entertaining, yes. Good business, no.
