Yahoo Backlinks Icon

Yahoo now offers you to create a badge showing the backlinks your site gets:

But what’s the point, really? Everyone can create a dynamic site using htaccess & a simple PHP script that will create 500,000 new nonsense content pages with links to whichever location you want (it may be less trivial to get Yahoo to index all those pages in order for them to show up as backlinks, but still). [Via Search Engine Land.]

Edit: I replaced the dynamic code with a static image as there was a noticeable lag.
