All the time, energy, and money spent generating low quality back links is misguided (IMO). Why not instead just invest the same time, energy, and money creating link bait content that attracts great links? The former exposes your site to the substantial risk that Google turns against your tactics and devalues your site, decreasing its asset value if not rendering it all together worthless. The latter strategy limits link development risk and ensures your site will likely retain and grow in value for the long term. Some people simply can't resist the allure of low hanging fruit.
