I just spent $5 on a backlink service that promised 50 high rank backlinks ranging from PR6-PR10.

I didn't really believe it to be honest so doing it as a test really.

I'll update you all with progress :)
What you are most likely going to get are forum profile links from forums that have higher PageRank homepages. These types of links are sometimes referred to as "Angela's" links. There was a woman who used to sell a $5 membership newsletter where every month she sent you a list of websites where you could go create these types of links.

If it ends up being forum profile links, then you should know that these links are essentially worthless unless you are going to stack them in tiers with more spam. Even then, their value is questionable. And it is also considered a link scheme by Google just so you know. So, if Google knew you were doing it (if they detect it algorithmically), they might demote your site.

When you want to run tests like these, I suggest you use a test website and not your money site. If spending the $5 works on your test site, then spend the extra $5 to do it on your money site. Chances are, you are going to discover that most $5 link building services (regardless of where you buy them) are going to be more likely to hurt your website than to help it.

If you buy enough of these services, and it turns out that these links end up being worthless links or nearly worthless links, you will soon begin to realize you are better off just focusing on getting one "good" link at a time. And you are very unlikely to get a "good" link for $5. Good paid links cost more than that.

You'll have to wait to see what the links look like once they are created. Maybe they will be okay and maybe they won't be okay. Chances are, those links are going to be like the forum profile links I mentioned. The guy is going to stack links from a second tier so maybe the links will push decent PageRank and maybe not. Either way, it will still probably look unnatural.

Some guys don't care if it looks natural or not. If it is a site I care about, then I want it to look natural so that it will pass a manual inspection if there ever is one.

So, once those links appear, ask yourself - do these links look like they were created naturally by someone who linked to my site because there is something useful or important on my site that they are linking to?

Or do they look like links that were created in an attempt to manipulate search results?

I am not a fan of using "obviously unnatural" links pointing directly at a money site.

I'm going to be less diplomatic than Ted. You bought garbage from an obvious scam artist.

Anyone who says they are giving you PR 10 links either does not have a clue what they are doing or is a lying douchebag.

Like Ted said, what these jackholes sell is profile links or sometimes they create new Web 2.0 properties. The home page might be a PR 6-10, but the page your link shows up on is a PR 0.

They use the fact that many people do not understand it is PAGErank and not DOMAINrank to prey on people.

It's just another dirty part of the backlink industry.

Fiverr is the last place to buy links. In fact, I would be very cautious about buying links in any public setting. Googlers can easily infiltrate a marketplace like that.

Think of tiers as a pyramid.



If a page links directly to your money site, then it is considered Tier 1

If a page links to a Tier 1 page then it is Tier 2

Tier 3 links to Tier 2 and so on for however many tiers you have.

You really don't need to go beyond tier 2 though. The point in having tiers is that it allows you to use spam in lower tiers without pointing the spam directly at your website. That way if a page gets penalized for spammy links, it is usually the Tier page that gets punished instead of your money site page.

For years and years, the vast majority of link builders focused only on building Tier1 links. Almost nobody thought of building links in tiers like that. Then one day word got out that you could avoid spamming your own website by spamming the pages that link to your website instead of spamming directly at your site. And it became a popular way of spammers trying to avoid a Google Penguin ranking demotion.

This is one of the favorite tactics of black hat link builders because it works to varying degrees depending on your methods and your skills.

LOL I tried to resell this guy on another micro gig site. His services and timing was so bad I had to quit re-selling his stuff. Can't believe he's actually still selling this junk 2 years later. I should've been selling "High PR Links" haha Apparently this guy has cleaned up. 43k+ positive reviews multiplied by $5. Over $200k in just positive reviewers. Thats not counting the people that don't review. Whoa!!!! All in junk SEO. wow!

The goal in link building is to acquire links that pass large amounts of PageRank to the page you are trying to get ranked high. Those are the links that boost ranking the most.

Every internet marketer knows how hard it is to just go out and find places where they can get those links.

You have a lot of options on how to try to get them. There are white hat ways to get them. There are black hat ways to get them and there are gray hat ways that are in between the two. Unfortunately, the easiest ways to get those links is to purchase them or to use some black hat method to get them.

The white hat way is the hardest way which is why so many people resort to using methods that Google does not approve of, like webspam for example.

And if you have the right software tools, then webspam is incredibly easy and incredibly cheap to produce. That is why you have a thousand sellers on places like Fiverr.com selling webspam SEO gigs. You can actually create webspam profitably for $5. You cannot create white hat or even close to white hat links for $5. Well, you can, but it is rare, very rare. Spam is ten times easier and cheaper.

So on places like Fiverr.com now, the trend is to perform a black hat SEO gig and somehow disguise it as a legit SEO tactic that will bring you results. In reality, the vast majority of gigs (based on my experience and knowledge of SEO) are more likely to hurt your rankings over time instead of helping them.

One thing that you might find funny is that often times, the people selling webspam SEO gigs are also selling "bad link removal" gigs. It is kind of humorous. First they will sell you the spam. Once your site is effed up, then they will sell you the "bad link removal" gig to disavow the very same spam they just created for you.

This guys services are trash.

I advise you to not purchase any services from micro gig sites. Not saying you can't find good services on gig sites, you just have to know that 99.9% of the IM gigs are garbage. And with that you have to know what you are buying and how it works. For instance, you buy backlinks but its obvious that you do not know what makes a link valuable.

It's the "juice" it passes through to your site. "Juice" = links (which can vary in definition pending on niche).

So if you just bought a bunch of links that have no juice, what did you buy? A whole lot of nothing and thats why it was $5.

SO that was the long answer.

In short

These links wont get you penalized. They're just not going to help ANYTHING. And if it does anything, will probably just dilute your profile. I could see them hurting ranking a little because of that, depending on how your profile looks.
