"Smart Link Building," he calls it... he charges $1500 for 20 one-way links, embedded in articles that he will create, and post on his web sites. We're assured that these are all on different class C IP addresses, different hosting... at first glance, he sounds like a spammer, but at least a reasonably competent spammer.
There's no way I'm going to buy into it, but I keep reading the sales letter, and he has links to example articles, on his own site. I start to think maybe the guy has a screw loose, because if those are real examples, then he's exposing the identity of several clients. (As it turns out, they are real examples).
But it gets worse. At the bottom of the sales letter, he has a list of the domains, IP addresses, and actual links into the article directories. He has actually published the location of every site in his link farm... this is hilarious. Go ahead and give the search engines a map to your link farm, dude. That's awesome.
My advice, when you see a scheme like this, is to just walk way. My advice, when you see a scheme like this, run by the world's dumbest link farmer, is to run, not walk.
Sorry, Jim. Congrats on "winning" a #1 ranking for elursmebble n7v or whatever, but I think this proves you don't need to have the slightest clue, to win an SEO contest.
