I think Shepherd has summed it up perfectly.
You want to provide a link to my content/resource for the benefit of your site and the users of your site instead of creating the content/resource yourself why can't I charge you for it?
The websites are linking to my resource because they don't want to go to the trouble of creating the information themselves.
And if they did, then it would not be anywhere near as trustworthy as my site dedicated to the topic.
Now, webmasters can find many ways of getting around this but is not that more trouble than just shelling $5 paypal?
By the way, if you guys think that idea is good/bad, wait till you hear my next!
I am going to start charging people for me to read their emails! ;)
(i am not sure what I have been drinking)
Any link request or request to buy a link or other unsolicited email will be met on receipt by a email asking them to verify their email by paying $2 paypal.
Of course, I will wait till after I send my unsolicited emails first.lol
