Great post Alexandrabrian. This is one type of link building I have never really looked at. I have always wondered if Google would give value to these type of backlinks especially when most of the PPC platforms use redirected urls.

Hi Alexandra :) To be honest, this is the very first time I've heard about using PPC as a link building method! As far as I know PPC is one of the most expensive traffic driving techniques out there that newbie SEOs and Internet marketers should stay away lol! But with your explanation, now I know why it's possible! Thanks for bringing in the fresh, I think I would give it a try in the near future when I'm more advanced with free ways. Have a nice day.
