    Personally it seems like a waste of $300 to me. There are more effective and cheaper white hat methods than spending $300 for a single backlink.

    In my experience it is, so are yahoo directory and best of the web all in the $300 range and I have seen all have a positive effect on serps. Depends on the niche your in and the possible income opportunities you have in that niche. Obviously if your niche has a maximum income potential of a couple of hundred dollars a month then spending $300 on a single link is mad.

    I agree and if traffic is also needed by OP, he can also use the cash for that.
