Well, when everybody’s doing it, is it Black Hat anymore?
Here we go with YAMDHPRO (Yet Another Million Dollar Home Page Rip Off). TagsPage sells words, which are listed as tags, on a tag cloud page. BFD. But the twist is shown at the top of the page.
- TagsPage uses the same concept as the Million Dollar Page with tags instead of banners. Add your tag now!
- Special: Got a blog with Alexa rank smaller than 200,000? Post a review of our site, send us the link and you’ll get a tag with a top value of $69
- All exclusive tags will be added on top of two PageRank 6 pages and will stay there for 1 year
So this person is selling an ad which provides a larger ad for a higher price (the more you pay, the bigger your tag in the tag cloud). That has little to do with SEO and everything to do with traffic. The sitewide offered is based on PR, and he is also willing to trade wth sites that have Alex rank. That makes two ways he’s trading on rank. The site also offers free and shared (low cost) tags, which would be a way to generate additional traffic (which hopefully siphons off to the largest ads on the home page).
A mashup of pixel advertising and link selling?
