$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.

So, of course, my next thought after my amusement was "how many links did this net him?"

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.

  1. Jim, thanks for this great viral marketing example… even if it may have been unintentional, it’s a great example of building a link bait 🙂


  2. 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 $$
