Google Mocks Link Exchange Offer

You and I see it all the time, webmasters or link builders emailing link exchange offers or posting comments or threads with link exchange offers. But a link builder had the audacity, to post a public link exchange offer in not just a Google Group but in the the official "Google Webmaster Help" group, for all Googler's to see.

What is kind of funny, is that a Google responded, mocking the offer. Google Webmaster Trends Analysts, Evan, said:

Our homepage has a fairly high PR and is based in the US, but sadly we do not have any travel-related pages one link away. If you want, you can submit a business proposal to Google here: http://www.google.com/support/contact/bin/request.py?bdpg=1

When you have the chance, you should read up about link schemes in our webmaster guidelines: http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=66356

Cheerios and Fiber One, Evan

I find that to be funny, maybe because it is really early and I am really tired.
