    I'm wanting to pick up posts/mentions on legit sites, and I'm considering just going straight to the source and bribing various contributors.

    What is the best way to go about this? I was think I'd just get a list of their emails, and email them one-by-one asking them if they'd be willing to write on my topic and include my information in exchange for money to compensate their time/effort. What is the best way to go about this as far as the details. I've read tommy's post a week or two ago, but I was wanting to know what other tips you guys had and how successful this tactic is in general.

    The authority site won't care, but I'm thinking one of the unpaid contributors would care.

    Unless your niche is about dogs or world hunger, your approach seems good to me.

    Its all about money...

    There is someone who posts $1000 budget offers on Elance for writers who have the ability to post on authority sites. It might save you some headaches. I imagine some of them get emailed a lot.

    I've never used Elance, is it a safe marketplace to buy on?

    I don't bid on those jobs because I don't write for the typical sites people are looking for. Your advertisement would be public and people would bid. I would not be surprised if there are Examiner, HuffPo, etc people on there who make some extra bucks on the side.

    The worst that would happen is that they would take your post down, but as a buyer they won't do anything to you.

    The only issue I could see is someone trying to scam you, but you can avoid that by paying out when the post is published.
