If you use "hit and run" methods to make a quick buck then you'd best be prepared to do that run - in "fly by night" mode - hopefully with the cash intact.
If you want long term business, you've got to practice that "golden rule". My favorite eCommerce guru recommends, "You don't want 'Sales' - you want to build Long Term Business Relationships." Most every business person knows that returning customers are much more profitable than one-off sales.
You don't build long term customers (or online authority) with sleazy sales methods.
I find it interesting that some are saying that bringing down these automatic backlinking methods and such are "leveling the playing field" for those who put in the time and effort to build high quality backlinks. Guess we can expect a lot more attention on "link profiles" and link quality.
Seems Google is implementing new, more powerful tek to make their ideas of page quality and "a good user experience" a requirement (not an option) to make money online.
