The folks at Text Link Ads announced via the Link Building Blog a tool that calculated the value of links on your page. This nifty and stylish AJAX powered tool asks you to type in the URL of the site, the site's theme, the number of links you want to sell on the page, if the links will be site wide or single page link only and then to specify the location of the links on the page. According to the tool, a single link on this site, if placed on the left hand navigation bottom bar, is worth $5,200 per month! The Web based tool is available at http://www.text-link-ads.com/link_calculator.php.
If you place seroundtable.com into the tool, for some reason, cartoon Barry pops up. Also, if you try msn.com, you get a funny picture, as you do with seomoz.org and even try google.com. I suspect there are more examples of these funny responses. Classic. :) Anyway, the tool is very cool, IMO.
