Actually, you can. I get emails form advertising firms on a semi regular basis offering cold hard cash for a text link to a client’s web site. Usually it’s for automobile companies or something vaguely Extreme!™ related, but this last one I got was actually skateboard related. And since there was a “limited number of spots available to earn income today” I thought I’d go for it. Why do they want text links? Well it’s to boost search engine ranking. And so I bring you skatehut.co.uk. My dear readers, you are under no obligation to click on that link at all, as I’m pretty sure including will adversely affect the SEO rankings at Skate and Annoy. And that’s what $50 will get you.
P.S. I went to the site on a lark and clicked on the “Decks” link in the “Popular Categories” list on the left and got served a 404 error. sweet.
