It seems a shame as i think social networks were one of the best ways to navigate the web, i guess they had to be gamed sooner or later, human nature etc
I'm curious to know if they work and if they get found out - i presume digg etc must be policing this kind of thing.
One involved something about, "I know who has a crush on you...click this link to find out." So it's definitely possible to get a huge volume of backlinks through wall writings on facebook.
Home pages, though, I am not sure about. Certainly, it's possible...but it doesn't seem plausible. I mean, they're social networks...if it were true I feel like you would have heard about it from 10,000 sources by now; particularly a competitor.
You can also purchase paid advertising on social networks. I should think some big outfit would have complained about unpaid advertising where the problem widespread.
Anyone else have any ideas?
These services claim to have enlisted the services of these inside people...
I don't like it much as social networks seem to me a great alternative to relying on google, stumbleupon sends 15% of my traffic these days.
