As a link builder, it has always pained me a little to see Google lavish such love and appreciation upon PPC (pay-per-click) service providers.

Depending on your game plan though, authority building can either be a very rewarding or a very frustrating experience. Having been a link builder for the majority of my SEO career, I’ve been at both ends of that spectrum.
