Can anyone explain how this works? (Huff Post links)

3 replies
I just started working for a costume company and during some preliminary analysis of our competitors' link profile I happened to notice that many of them were listed in a section called 'Around The Web' about half way down the page in the same Huffington Post article. These are obviously some highly authoritative links but I can't for the life of me figure out how they might have gotten them. Are they hooked into some sort of AOL advertising program that places links throughout relevant articles on HuffPo? Do they all have the same SEO company that happens to be tight with AOL/Huffington Post? That one is of course pretty doubtful. Just looking if anyone can shed some light on this.

    I wouldn't be surprised if those are from inlinks... which charges by the month to keep them there.

    hi, just wondering what you mean when you say inlinks? isn't that the same as backlinks? i mean.. they are definitely backlinks.. but how do you define 'inlinks'?
