Have you noticed how any references to "Link-building" sound like a slur now and that this has much become a taboo practice?
A service loved and used by all, and in fact still heavily promoted by many to the naive, is now being discarded and and in light of Panda and Penguin changes at Google, more a taboo practice than something that adds value.
Anyone marketing an online business knows (well you should and if not you do now.) by now that cheap link-building is not only dead but also simply a waste of your money, time and effort. It's been slandered the world over, and is considered offensive in every sense of the word and I might add, not before time.
