thanks for the response Robert
>>>For queries related to link building, though, Google does return ads for link building services, which, again, are a legitimate part of web marketing if they follow Google's link quality guidelines. So if you have a site and you want to make people aware of it in order to attract inbound links, that process of promotion is link building.<<<
If you pay a company to build links for you, aren't these links “artificial” since your paying for the “link building” service to improve Google rankings? I thought Google was against anything other than freely earned/given links? Appreciate your insight!
