- Kris on Am I Risking a Penalty if I Give this Hot Fudge Away?.
Great Post - so now we're talking Hot Fudge Marketing. I suppose it would work, as advertising is a science and hot fudge is a medium in this case. Is there a way you can attach your website address to each fudge you send out (like with stickers), that is a silent, passive way of directly marketing your link. I cannot imagine Google penalizing your OBL when your obtaining them through quality direct marketing, delicious, chocolate flavoured marketing. Best of luck, Kris

Hi Jim. this is really good idea and i don't think its spam. @sam Agree with you, just let them decide, if they find it helpful they will definitely give the links. this will be natural and truly ethical way to get links. thanks
- sam on Am I Risking a Penalty if I Give this Hot Fudge Away?.
Perhaps just give it as a gift and leave it at that? If people want to they will link back.

Why don't you just give them a load of cash and ask them to link to you with keyword rich anchor text? Then you can eat the fudge!
- Gerald Weber on Am I Risking a Penalty if I Give this Hot Fudge Away?.
I think this may possibly be breaking google webmaster "hot fudge code of ethic" guidelines. Something they take very seriously!

Jim, Nothing happens until something is sold. Market it. Why don't you have interested folks come to you? Make relevant, thoughtful comments on food, dessert, recipe blogs and forums. At the comment end simply say, "By the way, I've got a very few jars of the best sundae sauce a mom could ever make. It's like a kiss without the hug! [Contact me] and tell me why you deserve this Christmas treat". Or ... Set up a Blogger or Wordpress.com blog (hotfudgesundaesaucegiveaway.blogspot). The content can mimic a press release/news format with enticing photos, etc. Add a poll (Top sundae sauce treats). Then tell the interested what to do: "If you are a [ ], with a blog or site about [ ], tell us why we should send you a free sample of the best ...." Then bookmark it to all social sites. At Digg: "Madman Gives Away Mom's Sundae Sauce". At Yahoo buzz: "How To Get Free Hot Fudge Sundae Sauce!" The interested will read the post. Respond to all. Just a couple of ideas. Herb

What if I just go into your office and steal the hot fudge off your desk? Then I eliminate your moral quandary and I get me some fudge? Of course, if anyone asks, I didn't take it. QualityGal did.
- Saad Kamal on Am I Risking a Penalty if I Give this Hot Fudge Away?.
Jim, I want one! Anyway back to serious business - In my opinion, the thing you just described is fine. Its all Marketing anyway! Google doesn't and can't possibly monitor all links that are paid. I dont think they can say whether a link is paid/natural, simply by looking at it. But looking at other variables like it's placement (e.g. sidebar, footer) and the Anchor text -- they can probably make an educated guess. However, having said that, this only happens when the site goes under a 'manual review'. A spider isn't that smart anyway.. If your link adds 'value' to the content of any existing page on the web, I think you should by all means go for it.

We still offer pingo.com phone cards to any site or blogger to test out are product. We hope that they will post a review and link to us. But its up to them. I'd say that its fair "bait" vs paying dough to try to get a link.
- QualityGal on Am I Risking a Penalty if I Give this Hot Fudge Away?.
You had me going until the PS.
- paisley on Am I Risking a Penalty if I Give this Hot Fudge Away?.
in PR we send systems (can't say computer maunfacturer name) to people to do reviews, we DO get the computers back, (almost all of the time), so we send the computer for a REVIEW. since fudge really can't be benchmarked without destroying the sample... i would think that should be just PR. right?
