link building internsI ran a poll a couple weeks ago asking, do you use interns as link builders? The 120 plus responses are in and most of those who responded said yes, they use interns as link builders.

74 of the 120 responses, or 62%, said they do use interns for link building. While, 45 of the 120 responses, or 38%, said they do not use interns for link building. One said that he is considering it.

The main debate is if an intern can be successful in link building. Is there enough time to train and deploy an intern in the art of link building before that intern moves on to the next thing he or she may be doing? The debate is still going on, on this topic. But clearly, most of you are comfortable with using interns for link building.

Read this piece and you'll know where I stand on the topic of interns and link building: (P.S. Todd Mintz leaves a hilarious comment)

You get what you pay for. I can't see why link building should be an exception here.

I only use full time employees. It takesa while to get somebody trained. if you have an intern doing links there is no way they are going to do as good of a job as a full time person.
