Fast forward and im still getting these paid link 'opportunities' and as always, by sports gambling sites (i have a sports website, and sports gambling is allowed in my territory (Australia/New Zealand).
How do you guys deal with this? Will it kill adsense? How much do you guys ask for? I just replied to one saying $500 USD for a permanent follow link, but dont know how i feel about it. Money raised from the link would be used to give back to the community via competititon prizes so not fussed about that, but thinking more from a ethical POV as essentially you are being bought out as there should be 'no disclosure that its a paid link' and 'for the link to look as natural as possible'.
Thoughts? How did you deal with this if you have encountered this as well?
