I found in a periodic backlink check one of my competitors spamming a certain segment of web sites that allow url's in comments. The competitor didn't offer services in that geographic area at all.
So I added my comment and link in the geographic areas that my customer covered. This customer is in a niche of a niche that's within a niche so the normally low value of this type of link had a *slightly* higher value. Task took 2-3 minutes.....to Wheel's point this was not a normal action. I had a few moment free waiting on someone to respond to me and the info was on my mind at the time.
I did give their entries a spam slap via a colleague who likes spinning hours at a time doing spam reports to site and Goog.
