paid followers

Are paid friends the new paid links?

Paid links have been and still are a popular SEO technique and it’s not hard to understand why: they promise instant gratification to those who can’t wait for results. Unfortunately, paid links are not in favor with search engines for obvious reasons and those who employ them today do so at significant risk.

As the importance of social media becomes more apparent to businesses both large and small, it’s no surprise that the desire for instant gratification is rearing its ugly head in the form of ‘paid friends‘.
