    I should ask: Why or why not? I suppose the answer is obvious though, based upon whether one feels that the potential risks are greater/less than the potential rewards.

    No way in hell, your looking at a massive ass kicking if things go tits up, What long term rewards are there? Negative talk about your company when their rankings are slammed. Short term benefits may include getting new clients due to the client talking and saying "wow he got me great rankings" but yeah, your putting yourself at risk if you think that buying these would be good. you would have to be mad.

    but its a lot less risky as some other link building methods because you can easily remove the links, so if anything ever does happen you have full control.

    What if a client is nowhere to be found for any of their keywords? Is it justifiable then, in your opinion?

    No you shouldn't unless you tell the client it is for short term quick gains that are not sustainable for rankings. Types of sites this could be used on is one off events or cases where a website will not be needed after a few months.


    If you do use SAPE type links on real businesses that want long term sustainable rankings you are asking for trouble and perhaps later on being taken to court depending on the size / profit of your client from online.

    Client sites must be treated with respect,it's a slog simply because everything has to be accountable.I wouldn't dream of using sape on any tier of a client site.I well carried out private network yes(building network from scratch,no bh services),sape absolutely not.

    We purchase them regularly for clients who specifically ask us to perform blackhat on a given site. But.. If your client requests it you should always inform them of the asskicking google could dish out. Sape is great for short term quick rankings, but for long term stability go white hat all the way.

    I will setup a small site and will buy sape for it and later 301 to the client site. I have 3 sites with sape and each is buying jewellery to my wife.
    It could be targeted by google in future. If you are worried about it then do 301 and you should be fine. My votes goes to yes.

    Whaaat??? Of course not.. Your client shouldnt be bound to pay monthly for ever after they stop working with you. + I would never use SAPE for kws not even in SERPs...

    And IF you decide to use SAPE, it should be a maximum of 10% of total links not more. The opposite would be lack of respect & towards your client and his business, imo.

    I will and I do. SAPE links work great, you just have to know how to use them the whitehat way.

    Well it depends on the client and on you, I always give them different choices and give them the consequences.

    Sape will improved their ranks less than a month with large risk, or wait for 6 months with minimal risk.

    It depends on the client.

    Not a smoker, mate :) If you build sape links the right way (no footer links, no hidden links, no bad neighborhood links, only highly relevant and strong links), and as SAPE links leave not footprints at all, it's a whitehat SEO, yes :)

    You are most definitely confusing white hat with something else.

    Selecting SAPE is putting the client at risk, and can or may destroy your credibility...

    Using SAPE on your own site is up2u as folks know the risks...

    Why not... you're just brokering links. Same as using blog networks advertised all over this forum. With SAPE, you stop paying the bills, the links go away. You can also just as easily set up aged domains and 301 to your target site. If clients are interested in results, why not offer them this? It's their appetite for risk, let them decide. Lay all the cards on the table. This representation of SAPE as the blackest of blackhat is a bit ridiculous IMO.

    Besides is this Whitehat World or WTF ?!

    SEO Alchemy you go do that for a clients webshop. I'm sure they say NO if you ask. And the question was not if you would ask them, the question was if you would use SAPE.

    Errr, one is not exclusive of the other.

    How would you know until you asked? Different clients and different sites have completely different objectives. Its the same as investing. Some people want mutual funds, and some go straight for penny stocks!

    Would you purchase blog posts in an advertised "private blog network" for a client.... if so do you really think that's any safer than using SAPE links?

    Do you even know what SAPE links are?

    I always introduce my SAPE services with their pros and cons to my clients. In fact, they find me through my SAPE site while searching for sape related terms as "sape links", "sape network", etc. Most of them have already read what SAPE network is and just want to find an experienced and trustworthy SAPE provider to buy links for them. So everything is crystal clear.
