Have you seen these eBay ads where people sell their page rank? You win the auction and they’ll place a link to your web site and you can then hope Google passes their good page rank along to you.

A client asked me to investigate (of course, after I explained how PageRank works). I found TextAdvertiser.com and it’s interesting to see the prices. Here’s a sample of current offerings on eBay. A good SitePoint article about this topic.
