    As is true of so many things in life, the big boys have it a whole lot easier than the rest of us. Fishing for backlinks in exchange for money can be risky (not to mention deeply unethical), but that didn’t stop Hotels.com, an Expedia property, from sending out spammy emails asking travel bloggers for precisely that. What Happened? Earlier this month, a number of influential travel bloggers received an email from an as-yet unnamed “SEO Manager” for Hotels.com’s Americas division.

    Compression legwear can be important for patients suffering from bad circulation and blood clots. But just because a patient has to wear them, shouldn’t mean giving up a sense of style.

But when her doctor suggested compression legwear to help in her recovery, Minarik saw an opportunity. Today Minarik is the founder of RejuvaHealth.
