    Hey Guys,
    Have you guys ever wondered this?

    I mean they build a shit load of links that are related to the clients site. And the links they get the backlinks from all have good links built to them.

    So does anyone know how they are doing this?

    PM me if you dont want a lot of people knowing.

    That doesnt work because they are in multiply niches, and they are creating 10's of 1000's of links.

    This could be the case though how do you buy so many links? I know they could use the money the clients are giving them. But c'mon its got to be hard to buy 10k plus links

    Not really. I offer SEO service too and I dont buy link. I bought 2 blogrolls almost 9 months back.

    We build links on other sites. There are millions of sites where you can build links :D

    Big agencies have separate budget for links, on top of price for SEO service.

    Do you have big clients with brands worth millions? I guess not. No one will agree to any risk associated to black hat SEO. In competitive space everyone watches each others back. If competitors will see you are getting xrumer links or some shit profile links in higher volumes - your ass will be reported.
    I worked in this space for years. Link selling/buying is a massive business.

    Us, as affiliates/marketers - we have freedom. We can use anything that works. Proper business must take risk into consideration and where big money is involved, risk taking tolerance is getting smaller and smaller.

    Indeed one of the methods is buying links on somehow relevant content sites.

    Thanks for the responses guys, this is a really good discussion.

    I cant believe the amount of potential there are in buying links. I mean i knew you could buy links. i am not that silly, I have been in the SEO game for over 5 years now. But i didnt realise the big companies work into it.

    I would love to chat about seo strategies more. But the problem is no wants to brain storm ideas in such a public arena.

    Remember this article just 6 months ago?

    Even the big guys are always looking for an advantage.

    Buying links and "spammy" link building can get you in trouble in the huge markets... but for the other 98% of the business out there they seem to work just fine IMO!

    As an Affiliate of Jc Penney, after this article was published they sent an email to all affiliates (including me) that they are asking a favor to remove all their affiliate links/normal links from our sites. Because bla bla (about the article).

    A good friend works at an E-commerce in Europe. They have a huge SEO department. He told me they have like 15 people working 9 to 5 building relationships and buying backlinks. They have an important budget for this. (Important = BIG$)

    They basically do all the stuff manually but they create really good backlinks. The difference between them and an individual is that they use a different approach to get those links. They can pay good money for a single link, and they can offer better things (In the case of my friend, the company is able to offer memberships and clothes to individuals and corporative sh*t to companies.)

    Also they have bigger margins and they can spend more money to get results. (They sell volume. This means that they can have a small ROI)

    In less words they have their own strategy to buy links and the money to do it. They build links organically from 2.0 sources.

    Hey thanks for the replies. With all the money that the big corporations have and are willing to put into their SEO campaigns its almost guaranteed that they are buying links. I have been researching the links and it is interesting the information i have come across.

    Thanks for the replies
