    Hello, I was looking at the backlinks to l0g0m4ker.c0m. There is a backlink from frug4lglut3nfreeliv1ng.bl0gspot.com, which in source code looks like an image hotlink, but I can't click on the logo image. Is there something I'm not getting?

    Nice find.
    Quite a sneaky tactic. If you look at the HTML on the blog, you'll see this code:

    <div class='widget-content'
    img src="http://www.logomaker.com/logo-images/2ca1fdf09f84dc25.gif" /> 
    a href="http://www.logomaker.com/"><img src="http://www.logomaker.com/images/logos.gif" alt="free logo design" border="0" /></a
    What they've done here is added a 1x1 pixel image which links to their site.

    I'm assuming they give you some HTML code to paste on your blog once your done creating your logo and have got loads of sites to link to them with an invisible image as most people are clueless about HTML and don't know what the code does. Once they put it on their blog/site, everything looks kosher so they just leave it.
