    Hey guys.

    Just talked with a guy who own a forum related to my niche. He agreed to put my link/ anchor text in the forum footer.

    The forum have +- 500 pages indexed.

    Should I do it? I know that google devaluate backlinks coming from the same IP.

    I have really BAD experiences with backlinks coming from the same domain/ IP. It's why I dont know what to do.

    :confused:

    J0kerz,

    Just curious, did you agree to pay him anything, or was it for free?

    Free. It's a friend.

    I have bad experiences with this type of scenario. It's why I dont know what to do even if its free.

    I doubt there would be any problems with Google from your friend doing this, afterall it's organic backlinking, the way backlinking should be in the eyes of Google, can't see why they'd have a problem, it's what they want people to do, instead of spamming the internet like most of us.

    The reason why Im skeptic is that I previously tried the "WP top commenters strategy" where you get TONS of backlinks from one domain/IP. I got 2k backlinks doing so and all my rankings dropped as hell.
