Please do not add commercial links (or links to your own private websites) to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or a mere collection of external links. You are, however, encouraged to add content instead of links to the encyclopedia as we drive for print or DVD publication; see the welcome page to learn more. Thanks. kmccoy (talk) 03:41, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Please stop adding commercial or personal-website links to Wikipedia. It is considered spamming, and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising. Thanks. Carl.bunderson 20:07, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't understand Wikipedia's policies. If you discuss online auctions, it's OK to link to eBay. If you discuss search engines, linking to "Google" is acceptable. So why can't a company that is synonymous with both RFP and lead generation be linked to as a resource? 10:00, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

External links should provide information about the service, rather than being an example of the service. Your BuyerZone link would be appropriate if there were a wiki page called BuyerZone, for example. And in my understanding, an external link to eBay would be ok on eBay but not on online auctions. Similarly, a link to Google would be ok on Google but not search engines. I hope this clears up why I've been removing your link; and if you want to discuss it more, feel free.
