Here’s one of the most short-sighted and self-destructive things I’ve ever seen the Associated Press do — they’re going to try to prevent search engines and blogs from even linking to their articles, unless they pay for the privilege.
I should adopt that policy for my blog. About 50 different blogs link to me; at, shall we say, $1,000 a link that'll be a cool $50,000!
And that's just the sidebar / favorite links. Over the years, I've got hundreds of links. (Of course, I'll offer a discount for each additional link sent my way.)
My financial worries are over!
