buy text ads pollTwo weeks ago, we ran a poll asking if you would buy a text link from Text Link Ads or another link broker.

We have well over 300 responses and I wanted to share the results.

The bottom line is that SEOs can't agree on if you should or shouldn't.

  • 48% said they would buy a text ad from a broker to benefit their own sites.
  • 45% said they would not buy a text ad from a broker.
  • 5% said they would only buy a text ad from a broker to hurt their competitors.
  • 2% had other things to say

This was a pretty popular poll.
