---- Links are still the best way to achieve page one results, right?

the advice for gaining spammy links (in my opinion) is absolutely crazy and surely short sighted
I would agree, but the financial gain that can be made with a popular #1 position, no matter how short lived is worth it.
I have had my foot in both sides of the fence at one time or another. One sure thing I could say is if you have no links you have no results.
A competitor started in business this year with a rented domain. The domain had been sitting with a 'Rent Me' holding page for 8 years, before this person rented it. It is a partial keyworded domain. For 6 months+ this domain has now sat prominently at #1 for a their main keyword and now a host of other keywords.
Their backlink profile looks like this: India Style link Farms Comment Links Directory Links Footer Links Sidebar Links Partner Links Blogroll Links
So yes Lenny2 crazy and surely short sighted and if it "works" today it won't work tomorrow agreed, but the 7 figure gross sales that will have been generated in 6 months in his position, has difinately been worth his short sighted approach.
