    Hi, BHW

    Quick question. I saw Alex Becker (i know, i know..) use this plugin rent-a-serp or whatever. and credit where, it's due, never thought of renting my serp out before, so i learned that from him. i have this site that i'm ranking for local dentists, and i want to try out something like that.

    any alternative to rent-a-serp in wordpress? or any way i can do it myself? he mentioned lightbox in his video somewhere. how do i get that to work?

    thanks

    I didn't know who Alex Becker was...

    Then I searched for the name, yikes! You know you're in trouble when ripoffreport is at no1 for your own name ha ha!

    I think you'd be on shaky ground using that plugin. If it does what I think it does you're basically creating a doorway page - Google banning will follow shortly after.

    yeah, i know. i always try to keep an open mind, though, and the idea of renting out a site that you've ranked on first page caught my attention.

    so how is it considered a doorway page? what's the difference between this and selling banner ads on your site?
