This just tickles me, because it is absolutely absurd, and I really needed this!
When confronted with the usual request by a reporter, the Ministry of Economy and Finance didn’t give in. Instead, it reportedly stated that “if they have a link to your website, it’s because you pay them: SEO is not free…,” suggesting some kind of active cooperation.
So true! Linking is obviously always a financial transaction…
Also, “SEO is not free…” is going on my business cards!
