    I know none of them are technically "safe" and there is a risk with any link building service you choose, but by process of elimination, there has to be one that is the least risky. Can someone recommend a good link building service here that has never gotten your site penalized? Is there even such a thing as a white-hat service that will almost guarantee my site doesn't get penalized? Maybe some high quality unique blog posts service?

    I'm asking because I bought one of the services here a few months back and Google took a manual action against my site. My site was over a year old and I had some good natural links to it on the side. It was actually one of the biggest services offered here in the link building section. I promised the guy I wouldn't tell anyone about it here so please don't ask which service it was. Anyway, please recommend me a good service that will give me some good results that is pretty safe.

    Hi Mate,

    This is the mistake which is most of the people in BHW are doing. Before getting a service check the service with test order and filter the service providers. Maximum people are trusting the people who having lot of post count and also have good age in this forum.

    Please make sure are not a Sheep of cattle who do what others do. Be a human, think before you leap (make a decision). I am also a good service provider in BHW who have crossed 10 pages of my guest post service without any neagtive remarks You can check it.

    To be honest I had few people who are not satisfied with my links, I am not God to satisfy all people, but I can make a re-work and satisfy them to get their next orders.

    I suggest you to take Niche guest post and also Unique blog post service which makes some positive ranking without penalizing your site.

    I am not saying I am the BEST provider, But I am suggesting you to test a service before getting tons of links from a service provider.

    This is my humble request and I am not offending anyone here.

    If the service was using SAPE then it doesn't matter if you had natural links on the side, Google will take action (they really hate SAPE).

    PBNs that you build yourself are the least riskiest of them all and totally safe depending on how you set them up. I am pointing PBNs to my money site and i don't think they are ever going to get caught.

    The next least risky has to be guest posts offered here but you really have to trust them and be sure of their quality.

    My personal advice is to avoid the "huge" services that are actively advertising everywhere. In the past those are the ones that Google has proactively targeted and deindex the networks and leave site owners scrambling to recover from penalties.

    High pagerank links are without a doubt the most effective for pushing your site to the top. My recommendation is to use a service that is as discreet as possible. Does the service offer "examples" of sites to prospects? Does the service provide final reports with URLs of where you can find your links? If so, avoid. All it takes is one Google employee to join the service and deindex everything. The more underground the service is the longer you will maintain your rankings and avoid any penalties.

    Yep, 100% agree. It's always the big branded services that become targets. And then there is overhead. You wind up paying 25% more just to pay for their advertising.

    To find a really safe and good service, you really just gotta throw down a lot of money and test.

    Like I've burned through over $20k in SEO services these past few years just to find the best of the best. And I never share my best sources with anyone.

    Least risky ? Theres a couple of service here offering to manually build web 2.0s with logins. Quality will be shite but its a shortcut to doing it yourself. Negotiate to supply your own articles and contact info/graphics per web 2.0 and theres your buffer shield that you can kick the crap out of.

    Obviously thats only low to medium difficulty keywords only but you should be able to target plenty.

    Okay I appreciate all the advice and all of this makes perfect sense to me, but I am asking for a recommendation. Can anyone recommend a specific service that you have had success with in the past that you would consider safe?

    To piggyback on Duffer's comment, just buy FCS Networker, build out the web 2.0's yourself or use a service like Pogiboys here on BHW. Better yet, use it to run your own PBN.

    Building your own PBN has got to be the safest way to ensure you are not getting penalized - you can still get penalized, but at least everything is in your control and you can fix it. (check out my free tutorial here if you are interested where to start).

    The other way is to buy links directly from webmasters or bloggers through forums and blogging communities, - especially from those that do not advertise they are selling links. That's also a pretty safe method, if you buy from different enough people, you won't leave any foot print.

    Both these methods are a little bit more time-consuming and probably more expensive than just throwing cash at a seo package, but that's what you need to do to reduce risk and improve effectiveness.

    Try this to build some real quality links.

    1. Find a site in your niche with a really good popular article that you can add to or correct.

    2. Use that article as a basis for your article, analyze it adding your input.

    3. Publish your article on your site quoting that original site as the source, but offering your opinions on where it was wrong or could be improved.

    4. Contact that article source, and tell them that you have expanded on their article and give them a link in case they want to link to it.

    5. Search for a quotable section and the URL of the article you copied, so you can find instances of where it has been quoted. I suggest you do a google alert.

    6. Go to these places where the copied article has been quoted and offer your article as added information for the people who liked the original article. Watch social media especially.

    7. The links you get will be natural, and generally related.

    8. Buy beer with the money you saved.

    Today, unless you are constantly testing you have no idea what damage or good links will do. You have to use buffers, and be very careful with a money site that is not destined to be a bonfire. Even when you get away with it, there is always the possibility that exposure of your PBN or link provider will harm you down the road, usually when your site is worth more.

    Unless you build links by hand, any automation can eventually be ferreted out because of patterns. PBN that advertise in public places an get dismantled, any PBN can for that matter.

    But creating good quality content that people want to share is as white hat as it gets, at least for now. Find reasons for people to share your stuff, piggy back on the popular stuff.

    You are going to have to be more involved with your niches now, more hands on, you know: like a business.

    Be smart when choosing your services... the guest post service for example will only post on niche specific sites for you which will be different for each client. Avoid blog networks -- I don't understand how they're functioning on public forums where Matt Cutts could simply go buy the service several times just to out all the sites that participate in the PBN... and no they don't need a manual list, Google works based on patterns and algorithms so while it's not "easy" for them to block out these block networks, it's definitely not safe for YOU to be using them.

    My recommendation? Buy services that don't promise certain # of links etc, that offer niche specific custom links for your website.. the # doesn't matter, if the quality is good, that's what matters.
