    I see that getting backlinks from sites like Huffington post, engadget and the list goes on it's very expensive.

    Do they really increase the authority of the website?

    What do you think, is it better to pick a pbn service or a guest post on these sites?

    PBN and cheaper guest post are worth more.

    Yes, if your budget it tight than you should defiantly go for PBN or Guest Posting services. You need to take links from CLEAN PBN only.

    A good quality do-follow is worth looking for.
    What's happening now is more and more publications are switching to no-follow.

    The seo effect might not be as good, but you still might pick up good traffic from well placed copy on these type of sites.

    PBN can be considered darker blackhat than guestposting, it depends on your budget and attitude to grey/black hat methods.

    Ask them for sample links and then analyze the PBN domains Quality . Then Decide is it worth to buy links from it or not

    You should always check previous reviews of the seller. On BHW reviews play very important role to cross check anything.

    You don't. And if you buy them over Fiverr, they probably aren't. Just shitty sites beefed up with SAPEs, cleaner to buy the SAPEs direct from the source.

    It depends on the level of risk you are willing to take. The power and risk that these different kind of backlinks provide goes something like this:

    1) PBN posts on public forums = extremely high risk, low power. Basically a timed bomb that could go off at any second. No exceptions at all, it doesn't matter how hard sellers try to hide their networks (most of them don't even try anyway), they can easily be found and penalized in a snap.

    2) Guest posts on public forums = these are usually posts on PBN sites, so the level of risk and power is the same as above in point 1. Exceptions include legitimate sellers that actually do outreach in real websites, but they aren't cheap. The risk of guest posts in legitimate & real sites is zero. The power from them is also very high IF the relevancy of the site, and especially the page that will link to you, is high AND the authority of the site is high as well. Determing the level of relevancy and authority deserves a whole thread on its own, so I won't go into details about that here.

    3) PBN posts on your own private network = no risk and very high power, however you need to make sure that you buy the appropriate expired domains and hide all footprints, which is easier said than done. Again, I won't go into details, there are tens of threads out there explaining everything you need to know about building your own powerful PBN.

    4) Guests posts on HuffPo, CNN and the like = zero risk and extremely high power. 1 link from these sites could move you up in the SERP-s 30-40 positions easily depending on the niche & competition. However, 1 link in most cases won't put you on the front page immediately.

    So, to answer your question, it depends. There is no 1 solution fits all. If you've got the budget and are in high competition niches, go for it. If not, you would be better building your own network (which still requires quite a significant budget mind you) and ranking several sites with it or buy guest posts in legitimate sites if you can't be bothered with managing your own network.

    Both work, but pbn is short lived while authority lasts and have great benefits if it's do follow (check before you buy) and on relevant content.

    You can go for authority sites if you have a budget, getting backlinks from the authority site is beneficial when the links are do-follow.
    If your budget is tight then do guest posting on real sites, that will be more effective.

    Yes, it's expensive and I can suggest the Guest posts from the Real authority sites works effective and make sure the backlinks are from the relevant niche sites.

    Pretty much true these days. Throw in the nice little bonus that once the seller fills up a site he doesn't continue hosting, so the link dies when hosting dies. Public PBN links DO have their use, but not at a money site and not on a longterm project unless you are real sneaky. I've used them to index T3 blog comments and stuff... but more and more they have become junk links.
