    A few days back, i ordered BLOGROLL links ( 12 links with PR 3+ ) from a provider.

    My site was #12 before & #8 after.
    When i received the report i found that the network was full crap & asked the owner to remove all the links.

    In a few days it went back to #12 & after that whatever i do it's NOT moving a single position above.

    Do you think it's a sort of penalty? Any experiences?
    Thanks

    12 links will not lead to penalties. Better to rotate anchor texts as natural.. Google is very careful to give penalties as competitors have chances to make backlinks

    I had about 5 blog roll links on a low comp. site. Got them removed after reading how easy they may be to spot. Rankings dropped but I would not say due to the removal, but more due to panda.

    It was hard to get any type of movement for about a week on the site, but it has now jumped back up. It could be panda related, or simply blog roll related. Hard to say. I wouldn't buy blog roll links myself though, not anymore, just in case. Perhaps if they were very targeted, but not on random blogs.

    I say just continue to build links and you would continue to rise up in the serps.
