I've recently been contacted by an individual who wishes to post 5 plain text links in the global footer of my site, for a flat monthly fee. I serve roughly 1.8 million page views a month, and I am interested in the offer. How much money should I ask for them?
5 text links, eh? Sounds like Co-Op to me (digitalpoint.com). The coop algorithm looks at toolbar PR and the number of pages indexed. If you provide us with those two numbers, we might be able to help you out.
Yep, that's co-op... you can't sell weight anymore, but I guess selling links is fine.
5*10000 = 50000, I don't remember the exact formula but that's probably worth a few hundred / month to the weight bearer.
They changed it a few weeks ago.

If that's what you think it's worth, propose it to him. I've had people contact me about coop links before. I had about 25,000 pages indexed and a PR5, and I was offered $120 (which is pretty fair, I've come to realize).
