Buying Links - A Double Edged Sword?
Posted 16 August 2006 - 08:04 PM
Any thoughts on the concept of paying a monthly fee (say $80/mth) for a text-ad-link on a page that has a PR of 6 or 7?
My thought is this - if I can get some good link traffic by having a high profile link so that my sales/revenue are at least $80+ from having that link - then isn't it a good idea?
So I'm also hoping that the keywords I'm focusing on would also be helped in the search engines because of this high profile link. Make sense?
Lastly, what if I only earned $70 in revenue from direct traffic from the link - would it still be worth it to be listed on that high profile page considering I'd be boosting my link-power for my keywords?
You're thoughts? I've never really paid for links before...

I know most people want formulas and easy answers when it comes to linking but the reality is - it's a lot of gut feeling and tedious work to find the right/best kind of sites to secure links from so it's hard to say if your numbers will work - or not.
It's really no different than trying to determine if you'll get more exposure/return from the yellow pages or money mailers when trying to decide where to spend your ad dollars.
If you find high profile sites (translation - sites that rank well and are a place where your demographic hangs out) that happen to have high Page Rank - great buy it!
If you also happen to find high profile sites with low(er) Page Rank - great, go for it. I believe the Page Rank of the site shouldn't be the deciding factor in whether or not to buy a link. Let your customers drive your decisions, not a meter of green.
Pop over to textlinkads and check out the 'how to buy a link' video Patrick and Andy have put together. It's a good guide to getting started.

If you search on buying links you'll find the brokers. I have never used any of them since I do that on my own, but I refer people to them who have been happy with their services.
The gentlemen that own that brokerage are good people, they'll treat you right. But I would shop and compare, different firms specialize in different industries so look around until you're satisfied.
