Their mark? A blatant link. They leave no comment and don’t read your blog.
One such practitioner used a false trackback on my previous post- that’s where you game the system to thinking there is a link to your blog on another site.He used a backlinging/trackback spam machine. Sorry dude, this smacks of total desperation.
What is he thinking? That somehow I’m going to be interested in joining his business because he defecated on my post with his cheesball link?
So many people are looking for the quick and easy route to free traffic. I suggest the latter: be smart and consistent. For me, it’s blogging everyday (or almost) and providing massive value for free. (enroll in my Blog Force and you’ll see what I’m talking about.)
The thing is, it’s easy to get real backlinks: just leave a real comment that has value. Let me know where you’re coming from and I’ll probably stop by your blog and leave a post. It’s quid pro quo – a thing for a thing.
Someone has to stand up to mlm vampirism! Are you ready to join the fight?
