Link buying is not gray hat, it is black hat. If you need to buy votes for your site, is that really a vote? No wonder Google does not like it.

In my opinion, as I believe I stated in the forum thread that this post links to, link buying has nothing to do with hats. It's neither black, white, gray or purple.

Link buying is advertising and marketing. Nothing more, nothing less.

Links purchase for SEO is unethical. Hope you know Google punished for all these :) and they are more or less the same and we need to shell out when SE spiders eyes catches us :)

Thomas !! Google may not like it for their own reasons, but i think it is better then spamming.
