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:
