This is a broken business model
Indeed, and it forgets what every business person knows:
"Word of mouth is the best medium of all".
When I link to a piece of web content I am personally recommending it.
FREE OF CHARGE.
Someone wants me to pay to do this for them?
When the content I link to may change at any time?
Or disappear entirely overnight?
While there is no benefit to me whatsover?
Are they for real?
the thing is, these links aren't making me rich
Then perhaps you need to work on monetising your content.
Charging for inbound links is not the revenue model of the future.
It is the first step on the road to oblivion.
