Does it matter where backlinks come from?

    I see people everywhere proclaiming that they can offer a multitude of backlinks, for a small fee. Now, does this really help? If I run a a website about weight-loss and have 10,000 backlinks from computer support forums, what does this do for me?

    Another question: How do these people have access to so many backlinks? They cannot possibly own that many websites?

    obviously ,but not necessarily !!!
    I ranked #1 for the keyword I wanted with +30,000 competition just by getting 200 backlinks,
    and 85-90% of them didn't even have pr ( 0 or 1)!
    but in my situation I got the links from sites that I was able to put description about my niche (more than 100words) !!

    your second question : they use a automated software to make links !!

    relevant links (quality links) are far more better than irrelevant links.

    you can add a few misc links here and there but focus on quality links.

    A link is a link, does not matter from where it is coming... (except porn website, banned IP address, and other spammy place). So even if your link is coming from computer forum with your Anchor text, it will not do any harm and for sure, it will be good to you. The link gets counted and good for your SERP.

    Having said that, quality and relevant links always matter which is sure to put you ahead of others.

    You can beat a website with more than 1000 links with just 100-200 links if you know exactly from where you should get the link. Try to get it from authority websites and preferably from your niche.

    As far as access to so many backlinks are concerned. No one says they are going to get you links from their own networks. Instead links are obtained through various channels which includes Article Submission to directories, Article distribution to blog network, Guest blog post, Directory Submission, Social Bookmarking, Web 2.0 and Social Media, RSS Feed Submission, Press Release Submission, Blog commenting, Forum Profile creation, Video distribution and many others.

    Here!
    they collect forums, blogs etch to post the links. they dont really own the websites. I got a website with keywords ranking in top5 in google just using profile links.

    But if the competition is very hard then you will need quality links.

    If you need a list of websites you can post your links I'll give you some of mine. But I also just got it here so if you will search here you will find it anyway.

    Alright, thanks. I feel I have a better understanding. So quality links will always appear better to Google, rather than non-quality ones. What defines quality though? Just being in the same niche?

    I was wondering whether or not some backlinks could cause harm. If so, then couldn't a professional spammer, in theory, use your website as the target of their evil doings? By creating backlinks to your website from Porn, Spam and Banned Websites? As @newkid... stated.

    What tools can I use to see if my link building is actually getting me anywhere?

    The key is try to get highly relevant links. That is where I have seen my best results with the least amount of work.
