That's not exactly what I said. I was talking about natural vs artificial link patterns, and it's natural that freely given inbound links would come from people who've seen your site and liked it. Promote all you want... just don't try to fool Mother Nature.
Hey didn't mean to misinterpret your post. It's what I got from it. I'm trying to understand what is acceptable and what is not. I despise links and look forward to the day when Google is brilliant enough to rank sites on actual content merit and true freshness (not scrapped). I never believed that 'Mother Nature' could be fooled. I just thought that there was a tangible number of acceptable self promoting links. Is there a number to say how many article marketing, guest posting, begging higher PR websites, links you can go after initially?
