$39 – Free Stuff and over 3,000 links!

I was over at Dan’s blog (I Hate Google) reading older posts I’d missed, when I saw his reference to the $39 Experiment by Tom Locke…maybe it’s because it’s after 2:00am, but it had me chuckling here.

Yahoo (at the time of this writing) is showing 3,170 backlinks to his site….if you take that into account as well, his $39 experiment payed of VERY WELL…well, if he has a value for links.

    I saw this site a while back. Went and checked it out again. Noticed it has a PR7. Sent Tom (site owner) an email suggesting he sell paid links. Sent him a link to the link sales forum at digital point so he could see what he is missing out on and jump in if he is not allergic to $$

    I was over at Jim Boykin’s blog reading about the Co-citation theory which he (and I in my last post) blogged on. While at his blog I also noticed his post on a $39 experiment by Tom Locke. Tom is an average guy (as he claims to be) who happened…
