I just received a link request email for a great offer linking to Intel. I thought I misread the company name, but it is indeed the behemoth computer chip manufacturer.
This is a really low budget way for Intel to go about getting more links, and I thought they could be a little creative and try to use some Digg
spam bait to get more links. Intel just got hit with a 1.45 billion dollar fine from the EU so they must have had to slash their search engine optimization budget.
The email is below:

Again, awesome site!
I wonder how this 3 way link strategy is working for this multi billion dollar company. The top backlink listed is from HV Web Directory :: SEO Friendly Web Directory.
Intel should be proud of the money they are saving from having axed their online marketing department.
