    If you are the owner of a hosting company, why don't you give out free backlinks for hosting with you.And use it to market, I'm sure you will get more customers.

    Just a thought.

    Probably because building backlinks, SERPs ranking and traffic for customers isn't what hosts do. They're like Internet landlords, they provide the home and make sure the roof don't leak. That's what they're (most of them at-least) good at and good for.

    I wouldn't want my host posting backlinks to my site as a "bonus" for hosting with them, because I'd have no idea where they might decide to post those links...what if they run a network of adult sites and use that for giving away their free links to customers?

    That would suck for my "Knitting With Grandma" site in the long term.
