What do you think?
I work for XXXX; a UK based Digital Marketing Consultancy.
We represent clients interested in social media marketing on smaller sites with little or no existing advertising and we're currently looking for advertising partners.
We pay a fixed upfront annual fee which we will agree on with you. Once the ad is in place, payment is made within approximately 48 hours.
Would you be interested in placing a small text-based ad on (MY BLOG URL)?

They don't say what type of ads...adult? drugs? etc.
Why small sites? The advantage of that would be....
and other questions.

But.... I've emailed them back to see what they are about.
The UK company does seem like quite a genuine and well established one which is why I've written back to them to see what they have to offer etc.

I did reply too, cannot remember where it was left ..... I guess I asked a question that they did not want to answer. Oh, that's it. They were registered in the UK, had a UK company and address, and I asked if they would pay direct to my business account rather than going through Paypal to avoid fees and they never replied.
I looked up their addresses and could not see much in the way of a business so assume it was just a forwarding address. So I reckon, dodgy.

.....and on the same day I had someone requesting to do some "guest blogging" on my blog... so I asked about that as well.... and it appears that the articles would be advertising a website where this person "writes for".... but I think they are an affiliate writer and getting paid for any affiliate links they can get in articles where folks click back through to the website?
Interesting technique I thought! Become a "link dropping affiliate" and then see if you can blag your way onto people's blogs under the ruse of writing posts as a "guest blogger"
.... I may try this myself!

I appreciate your concern about "no follow" tag. However, this usually flagged as error in the system. Also, we strictly follow our clients terms so we have to insert the exact URL provided by our clients.

You have to watch because there are also people that seems to be some sort of third (or fourth) party affiliate scheme promoters. Which just seems dodgy.

Good advice. Thanks.
And the final link(s) - were you allowed, or did you use "no follow" links?
