    So how much more link juice do you guys think Blog Roll links give vs Blog post links?

    I see services selling here , for High PR Blog roll vs Blog posts.
    The price difference is about 4 times.

    Would you rather pay $8 for a PR 4 blog roll link , or 4x for PR 4 blog posts for $2 each?


    And most sell the blog roll inks for say 3 or 6 months. If you use these, does your money site drop ranks/PR after all these blog roll links get taken down? or relatively safe?

    Mainly talking for micro niche, non high competition here.

    I would say this depends on the website and how many indexed pages it has.

    Blogroll links will be on each and every page of the blog. So its a bit more powerful than a blog post. Blog posts also, after a certain amount of posts get filtered to the 2..3...4 page which don't usually carry as much pr.

    If your site can handle the amount of indexed pages (each page counts as a link) I would go with blogroll.

    The best is the variety though.

    Are you saying, that if that site has like 1000 posts, that being on blogroll would have 1000 pages linking to you, in google's eyes?

    By the way, I'm looking into EDU links. Don't know much about Wiki links.

    How do these compare?
    - EDU profile
    - EDU posts
    - EDU Wiki
    - General WIki?

    Rep given to who can answer the question. Cheers!

    to be honest i never believe in blogroll links. Wouldn't they look too obvious? Blog post links ftw. But these days a lot of private blog networks get deindexed so we must be wiser in posting our links.

    I personally like blog posts, since no matter what, contextual links work!

    I'm curious though; wouldn't blog roll links be more powerful, because (as another member said), you are getting links from the page with actual PR (actually, all the pages with PR, since blog rolls are sitewide)?

    It's not just about the PR that your link is on. You see even footer links are the same, but they were abandoned like, I don't know, years ago. They don't work. Google knows that those link might have been bought, or could have been placed by some hacker.

    Another thing: In a blogroll, your link will be surrounded by absolutely irrelevant content. For eg, let's say your link's anchor is "weight loss". Above your link is another one on "plumbers in dubai". Below it, is "USB drives".

    In the content area, there are articles on every possible topic.

    Now, imagine an article that is quite long, unique, and has a link to your site embed in it. What would be better?

    Sure, I have tried both kind of links, and as far as my experience goes, article links are better provided the network is good enough.

    I do both, so it's pretty hard to tell which is doing more.. But come thing of it, sitewide might be a better option ?

    Blog posts are more powerful as the are contextual. In addition, though they roll off the main page, if the actual domain as a decent PR then the inner page will also quickly gain some PR and then your link is contextual on a relevant post with PR. Blog roll links are not worth it IMO.

    i have seen my sites get slapped after blog roll links so i learnt the hard way not to buy these links a while ago. These were sites that had a variety of other links too.

    sitewide links in general seem to be less valuable than posts. buy posts in related blogs and stay away from junk networks with spun content.

    Very good discussion, seems we have a consensus that blogrolls are not that good, almost even can be bad.

    Anyways, no one answered about this:

    By the way, I'm looking into EDU links. Don't know much about Wiki links.

    How do these compare?
    - EDU profile
    - EDU posts
    - EDU Wiki

    Well, You can get the answer for your queries in BHW itself.

    Blog postings is more juicy then social bookmarking, social media submissions.

    The thing is we have to post our comment before 10-15 and also we have to choose the post on blogs with external links 15-20 .

    If the blog has many pages, blogroll is better.

    To answer your question,
    If the blog is highly relevant to your target site, a blog roll link would be a lot more valuable then a blog post containing a contextual link.

    Here is why:
    A blogroll link is like a footer link on a website. It's a perm link on the website which tells google this link is very important in relation to the website as a whole. Where as a contextual blog post link just tells google that the blog post specifically contains a relevant link just within the context of the blog post and not the site as a whole. I hope that makes sense? Feel free to pm me if you need additional details.

    I just wrote an interesting thread on blog posting you might be interested to read about also that may benefit your inquiry.

    Hello,

    You should go for blog posts backlinks rather than blog roll.

    Blog roll backlinks may be situated on homepage but it will be placed without any content around the link. Google don't like this.These are too expensive. Not pass too much authority. And may be this will be for a few months or subscription type.

    By getting a blog post link it will have more quality than a blog roll. Your link will be surrounded by a keyword rich content. Your post will live for years and you have to pay less for this. It will look natural to google. And by adding more links to the blog posts you can make the link more qualitative.

    Thanks
