Infobionics is attempting low-rent, sleazy search engine optimization. Below is the text of an email I recently received on their behalf:

Shotgun link-exchange requests like that are nothing more than attempts to get the appearance of a real recommendation (the incoming link) via a bribe (the reciprocal link). Bad move. Amateurish move. I would advise against buying enterprise software from any vendor doing that kind of thing. In particular, I would be skeptical of whatever marketing message they are pushing with that kind of sleazy scheme.
