Every industry has their addiction. Wall Street is known for their speed addiction, Hollywood for, well - can't list them all and so on. The SEO industry may have an addition to link acquisitions, mostly Google's fault :).

In any event, I found a humorous thread at HighRankings Forum that talks about one person's addiction to links. He said:

Hi I was just wondering if I am the only one that spends a lot of my spare time looking for links? I seem to be fanatical about contacting people, I even rang a company in Turkey that I thought would be good for me but we didnt understand each other on the phone - i think they got confused when i mentioned google, anyway every time I get a positive response I jump for joy and need another hit.

It made me laugh, I admit it, I guess it is all the time I spend reading forum threads and I cracked (no pun intended).

So let me ask you, anonymously, if you are addicted to links. Take our poll:

Links are like vegetables...I don't enjoy being "forced" to eat them but they are darned necessary for good health :.)

So creating a link bait article would be the same as home gardening.

I dream about internal links more... sad....I'm aware.

I dream about how much I hate having to request links on an occasional basis. Is that 3 votes?

I love my vegetables, "makes you grow big and strong", that's what my mother used to say. @Randy, I like that. @Hobo, not sad, that make's us two peas-in-a-pod!
