Most SEOs Say There Are Penalty Proof Paid Links

linked bullets penaltyA few months ago I ran a poll asking if you believe in penalty proof paid links?

We had over 200 responses and I am a bit surprised to see that most SEOs believe in penalty proof paid links.

53% of those who replied said there are penalty proof paid links, whereas only 26% said there is no such thing. Another 20% answered that they do not know.

I honestly felt that more SEOs would either say there is no such thing as a penalty proof paid link or say they did not know. I am a bit shocked to see so many SEOs saying they are confident that they can pay for links and not get caught.

Are you surprised?
