A DoubleClick Ad For a Link Buying Service

When you enter http header checker into Google, one of the first or the first result is a page by On this page, I noticed an ad for a “link building service.” The ad is by Google’s DoubleClick, and it points to a page at which promises that “Your links will come from pages with only 5-15 outbound links!”, that “Some of your backlinks will come from high Google PageRank pages: up to PR6!”, and that they “use a unique link building technique: our links will come from high quality forums with high Google PR - up to PR9!”. Buying links with them will improve “your website rankings for your targeted keywords on Google”, they say. The also write that they “follow all Google Guidelines”, but doesn’t this look a whole lot like text link buying, which is against Google’s webmaster guidelines?
