  1. I can’t remember if I commented on your previous post about this or not but I have had an experience recently where I was asked to put a link into an old post. When I asked about budget they told me they didn’t pay for links because of google guidelines but would tell the companys media team about me and they might (only might mind!) include me events and I’d be on their radar. Well I assume I’m already on someones radar to have been contacted in the first place!


  2. The best excuse I had was that they would Tweet about my post because “of course they don’t pay bloggers”, as if I should be thankful that they’d share it on their social media. They had far fewer followers than I did, and this was a pretty major, high-end brand. They even went as far as to tell me what I should be writing about in order to attract more visits. Needless to say I politely told them where to go!

    Thanks for the heads up on Hummingbird, very useful :)
