    Question Weird email
    Hello Everyone!

    LimoStars.com would like to ask you to place a Back Link on your website. This would be greatly appreciated and will help us with some SEO tasks.

    Please place http colon forward slash forward slash www dot limostars dot com on your website and send us an email letting us know that you did.

    Note: Page Ranks of 5+ or higher is desperately needed. Thank you for your attention to this matter.


    Why would I do that? Do they mean placing the link without my affilaite id? I think so. Otherwise they could have emailed us asking us to place text links on our site, to remain active.

    Is there more to the email? Any compensation or something or were they expecting people just to do that for free?

    Wouldn't do it anyway, just curious.

    I emailed them back this morning asking for more clarification. They haven't responded yet. If it's that improtant to them, at least respond.

    Hi,
    I just received a response.

    "Ooops! You Know, I didn’t think about the commissions.
    Let me think about it!"

    We'll see what happens.

    Unfortunately websites hire SEO companies and that is what the SEO company asks them to do and they don't consider the consequences or implications of what they are asking. I've actually had to explain to more than one client over the years why they should not send that request to their affiliates.
