I just got a pitch this morning from an outfit that was offering guest posts on blogs ("PR1+") for--drumroll--two dollars each.

Next thing you know, guest posts will be on the McDonald's dollar menu.

WOW -- It used to be free to tank my own site, now it's $2 a post to do it? And they say there's not inflation -- If that's not inflation, idk what is...

One has to make sure that they are high quality blogs and that the guest posts are at least 500 words in length! #irony

I've always preferred the horse race.

Kentucky Derby coming up in a couple weeks too

Perhaps business is slow so they are having a sale...

I don't doubt these people are e-mailing everyone, including Google, highlighting their details and making them a target.

$2 is hardly worth a punt on the horses, but go for it anyway! ;)

Where's the outfit located? Bangladesh? $2 would barely even cover the expenses of adding, uploading and archiving the content.

What kind of odds are they giving you?

It's not for your site...it's the "negative seo" fire sale :)

Your guess wasn't too far off, continentally speaking. The e-mail was from a UK domain, but the sender IP was in New Delhi.

Still have $2 bets, but most of those never pay off...

And Matt Cutts has already spoken. :)
