It benefits us bloggers that the trend now is into increase link popularity.Â If one has a business site, they have to increase their page rank in order to beat the crowd and stay on top.Â So, many of these business sites are into doing just that.Â In order for them to do so, they need people to link them.
Well, for business sites, unlike casual bloggers, they won’t have people mentioning them in passing.Â Like us bloggers, we will sometimes talk about our good friend, another blogger, add in their blog URL and that’s that.Â But if you own a business site, chances of people mentioning them is less likely.Â So, they need to invest a bit into getting link.Â That’s where we bloggers come in.Â We get paid, they get link.
A good way to spread some linky love.Â Works for me and you!

Well although it doesn’t hurt to have a paid link, the reality is sponsored links don’t rank that well with Google compared to voluntary links. But since advertising to the masses is the main priority here to business owners, i think pagerank is the last thing on their mind.
