    Hey,

    I got contacted by http://letsgetwise.com/ and they wanted to publish one article on my page (with relevant niche). They offered 100$ if we published it.

    It has 3-4 links to other pages which looks ok.

    Anyone got any experience with them? Is this shit real?
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    It is normal man, many marketers follow this technique. It is called sponsored guest post. And why are you worried about it because you have full control over your blog.
    So, even if s/he chargeback or ask refund then you'll be free to remove his post as well. But I'm sure s/he not gonna do this.

    Nothing to worry about. If they don't pay, just remove the post.

    Take payment first. And as others have said, if they do something you don't like with the links, remove their links and you have free content!

    WHY not remove the link, so they shouldn't get hit by google over unusual link building?

    It's okay, it's promotional post

    Yup! Or just require that they pay beforehand.

    In the end, they DID come to you.

    Most people pay after posting on the blog, if they don't pay or cheated to then just remove the links from the post to have free article.

    If your site has good rankings, PA, DA etc, then it is normal. Also, even if it is fake-u can publish the article, and if u dont get the money then u can delete the article!!!

    It's fine. But I believe they just want backlinks from your site which is ok since your site is relatively new? As long as the article they're posting also benefits your site, why not?
