"Aaron, it's dutch ;)"
and thus it is even HARDER to read ;)

"Link building tips:"
I think it is fine to buy links which boost your PageRank.
It is always a bad call to link into guestbooks.
It might not be all that bad getting links from guestbooks, but I do not usually think it is worth the time.
