    I'm currently testing out buying links. I'm not doing a full out case study, just experimenting a bit with both buying blogroll links and guest posts. I'd like to know if anyone has experience with both and which worked better for you. Once I get some of my own results I'll also report my findings back here, though not scientific.

    Only buy quality guest posts - from private networks with unique content. Google does not like blogroll links - guest posts can be more natural and there for google treats better.

    And you know this for a fact do you? Ignorance is bliss. You should try testing before you make statements like that :) Blogrolls used correctly work very well.

    what does used correctly mean? I'm using different Anchor texts per site and only related sites. Anything else?

    I would expect that blogrolls would work well especially if purchased on a site with hundreds/thousands of indexed pages.

    Do both but make it look natural, and don't buy links on crap sites, whether it be blogroll or guest post.

    If the site has loads of pages and you're getting a blogroll, this is where you have to be more careful with the site and anchor you use, as this will naturally lead to more links from this site.....

    Not sure about this, some of the best links i have are blogroll type links, but i didn't pay for these. Sometimes people just link to you because they like your site! Imagine that!

    thanks, kinda what i expected. on a side note how do you determine "some of the best links i have" is there any way to determine which links are more influential to your rankings/pr?

    They're just real websites, not sites which have been made specifically for linking or SEO. They have age, PR, loads of indexed pages, and for what it's worth they have good scores with regards to domain and page authority on OSE, and good trust and citiation flow in Majestic.

    Above all you can just tell by looking at them.

    And the site owners chose the anchor to link my site with, not me.
