    So my website is now #10,still need to do about 3 more article and put them on my pbn,and I will do few safe web 2.0.
    I am also doing cont + do follow for tier 1,and then tier 2 also cont+do follow and tier 3 is low spam. I am also doing social bookmarking,for tier 2,to make my tier 1 stronger,but that is not important. My question is,I saw some service for guest post,and 1 guest post cost about 25$,or at least that is price for "good" ones. Now I never bought guest posts before,and my questions is are they worth the money? I mean I think I won't be able to rank website for #1 only with pbn,web 2.0 and gsa,so I want to buy few of these posts to help me. I was also thinking about sape links or maybe even to buy domain on godaddy auctions for similar things and then redirect them. What do you think which one would be best?

    Also did you buy guest post here on bhw,and from what thread? Did it help you and how much? How hard was you competition? How many searches did it had with "allintitle:niche" (This doesn't have to present anything but it can tell me more) I am ranking for keyword that have 75k searches. Also second keyword for same niche have about 40k searches per month.
    So I will have about 150$ per day from this website,and I don't really care about money to spend,but I just want to see your opinions guys.

    Thank you for helping me! Please don't post if you don't want to help.

    Sounds like you're trying to be pretty safe. I wouldn't do any BHW guest post services. And I'd be wary of any guest posts you find on your own. I'd guest post on sites that don't add 10 guest posts a day.

    He's a tip for everyone, because I think a lot of people miss this. If you're going to guest post on a site, go to www.semrush.com and enter the URL. Look for severe drops in traffic, especially around Google updates, ie site was penalized. They can have high DA/PA, but be penalized by Google. Personally I don't want to pay a site that's penalized (probably for allowing tons of garbage guest posts) for a guest post. If you see a site with a DA of say 50 and in SEMRush it's not ranking for anything, something is probably up because a site with a DA 50, probably even 40, should be ranking for something. Now this isn't the perfect rule, but it's something I use as a quick indicator for the site.

    If you can't rank with your own PBN, it's probably not a very good PBN. A good PBN will be more valuable than a guest post.

    There are some good services here on BHW, but a lot of services where a) the seller just doesn't give a shit and wants to make as much money as possible or b) the service is intended to be a rank now service, with a good chance the service will eventually get found by Google.

    Well for now I have only 15 pbn sites in my pbn,I used deleted domains,but will get few expiring from auctions and turn them into pbn.
    Also it is not that I can't rank it,like you see in less then 45 days I am in first page for niche that will bring me 150$ per day,but it is just taking to much time,I want to be done faster(I know I need to take it slow)

    I am not earning money from that website yet,maybe only few $ daily,but as you see I want to rank it,and guest post do work,but I don't know are they worth etc. That's why I'm asking does anybody here use guest posts.

    Also everything I do is black hat. There is no white hat seo bro. As soon as you make any link,that is black hat because you are not following webmaster tools guide. So it is just question how good are you to make google think links are natural and not see anything suspicious

    Guest posting is one of the best ways to get link juice to your website.

    Looks like there aren't a lot of people who use guest posts.

    Hi AH,

    you're right to say not many people 'rely' on guest posting but they still 'use' guest posting as part of seo strategy. Personally, I 'do' minor guest posting in related niches to diversify links and anchor texts but some do for the sake of diversifications.

    There is nothin wrong but don't spam else risk being reported. Again, don't go unrelated ones to spam as well.

    I wouldn't go for guest posts for ranking purposes. They have their own place in IM.

    Why not? I mean can you please explain it a little bit. I mean I know a lot of things really on SEO,and have my personal point of view,but I like to know what other people think etc. Why would you then use guest post if not for SEO? People are saying that they are improving serp.

    Well in my term, I prefer high authority guest posting services. Blogs must be real, have different authors (with social profiles), good CF/TF, traffic, not have more than 3 guest posts per week. I found many on different forums that make PBN and then sell their services as guest blogging so be careful with them. Only high authority and niche relevant guest blogging will be beneficial, but don't buy more than 2-3 links per month.
