it is now proven, that links maybe harmful to one's site
My very first contribution to this preposterous thread pointed out that a hyperlink cannot damage your website, which remains entirely unchanged.
A search engine's reaction to a hyperlink is entirely their decision - I have no agreement with them and no influence on their ranking system. Take it up with them.
The fundamental flaw in your supposed "revenue model of the future" is that you are trying to monetise something you do not own.
You are free to put a toll-booth on your property and charge people to get in.
You are not free to put a toll-booth on my property and charge them to get out.
the idea of restricting who can link to your site certainly has some appeal, doesn't it?
Tedster, the appeal of the "ideas" presented here is in the charging, not the restricting.
If you can charge for inbound links, you will presumably want as many as possible.
Don Corleone knew how it worked.
pay me 5 bucks or else
Or else what, Cabbie?
Extortion and fraud are criminal offences.
And they are all you have.
Make me an offer I can't refuse.
