Buy Backlinks Bad Idea?
If you want to buy backlinks but want some information first you came to the right place. Most people buy backlinks because they want to increase their rankings in the search engines like Google and Bing.
There have been many companies spring up lately offering to create backlinks for you for a fee. If you want to buy backlinks you need to know some important things about these companies first.
Most of these services are legitimate and provide a quality service, but at what cost? If you have a static website (you do not add content regularly) then I do suggest you buy backlinks from one of these companies. For those who have a blog or other website that you add to regularly I have another solution for you I will talk about at the end of this article.
Why Should You Buy Backlinks?
The purpose of having backlinks is to increase your SEO rankings for target keywords that are relative to your website. Your website may have great content but unless your site ranks high in the search engines no one will ever know to visit your site. Using targeted keywords is crucial for ranking on the first page of search engines.
I suggest you determine 5-10 targeted keywords relative to your site before you buy backlinks. Once you have a list (put some serious thought into this list) you can start looking to “buy backlinks”.
The reason you should buy backlinks is simply to save time. Creating backlinks is free but very time consuming. The average website owner should not spend their time creating hundreds of backlinks for their site. It just doesn’t make sense.
When you buy backlinks you are buying your time back. The companies that provide this service are profitable because they either use sophisticated technology or outsource the physical backlink creation process to low cost personnel (usually people in asia and india).
Buy Backlinks Affordable?
There are many companies that provide backlink services. Some strictly sell backlinks, while others allow you to buy a complete SEO package for your website which includes backlinks.
The key to remember when you buy backlinks is you get what you pay for. I have reviewed several companies who have great customer feedback and the average backlink cost has been about $.30-$.50 each.
For example, if you want to buy 500 backlinks you can expect to pay about $150-$250. Companies that offer thousands of backlinks for “one low payment of $39.95” are not trustworthy in my opinion.
You can judge a lot about a company by their website. If the site looks like a kid designed it I would be cautious.
I would also never buy backlinks from someone who did not offer a way to verify the backlinks were created. Many companies have reports that will be generated once backlinks are created showing exactly what was done. The great thing about the internet is you can verify the backlinks by searching for them in Google or Bing.
Another thing to consider about affordability is time saved. Remember, you are buying time back when you decide to buy backlinks. How much is your time worth? If you spend $250 on 500 backlinks, how long would it take you to create those 500 backlinks on your own? This is an important thing to consider if you are thinking about buying backlinks.
Don’t Buy Backlinks If You Have a Blog
If you have a blog or website that you add content to on a regular basis I highly recommend that you don’t buy backlinks. The reason is because it’s not cost effective to buy backlinks for each new piece of content you post on your blog or website.
Basically, when you social bookmark something you are creating a backlink. This could be a post on Twitter or Facebook with a link pointing back to your content (make sure the link points to the specific url for that content and not your home page). The more bookmarks you make the more backlinks you get. It’s that simple.
In order for you to buy your time back just like when you buy backlinks you have to use a content syndication service.
Content syndication is when a group of people agree to social bookmark everyone’s content. So imagine being in a group of 200 people who bookmark your website every time you post new content.
This is the best form of backlinks because they come from unique users and it looks more authentic to the search engines.
I use a service called Tribepro. Tribepro is a social networking site that allows you to join different content syndication groups within the community.
There are 3 great reasons I use Tribepro.
- Affordable – Starts at $39.95/month
- Unlimited Backlinks
- Completely Automated
Tribepro has 3 plans to choose from. You can use their services for FREE if you wish to but you are not able to take advantage of their automation technology (I’ll explain this in a second).
Because you get backlinks from other members of the group you are in, the number of backlinks is potentially unlimited. The more people in the group, the more backlinks you get. This is way better than if you were to buy backlinks individually.
The awesome thing about Tribepro is once you set things up and join a few groups, everything becomes automated. Every time you post a new piece of content on your blog or website Tribepro is notified and all of the members in your groups will automatically bookmark your content.
Tribepro is able to automate the process through the use of cutting-edge technology, RSS feeds, and social bookmarking services.
