This morning I received an email from a company suggesting I try out their new WordPress plugin on my blogs, the email stating that by adding this plugin to my blogs I will generate 100’s of backlinks, the plugin by the way is called Blog Press SEO, now having done this for some time, my nose started twitching and I’ve researched this plugin.

First of all, there is a word for plugins like this one, and it’s called “link scheme” and let me tell you, Google does not like link schemes and you run the risk of having your blog banned, there is also a paid version available which effectively buys links and we all know that Google definitely does not like that, so beware and do not get conned into using this plugin.

If you would like to read more on this, here is  a link to a great article on the subject, http://yoast.com/blogpress-seo-plugin-spam/.
