    Guest posts have never been in my link building strategy as I use PBN's but I want to move away from PBNs in the future. It would be good to have a rough idea of what I will expect to pay if I was to manually contact average bloggers (not BHW services or agency services).

    Obviously, it depends on the site and it's backlinks but a price range would be helpful for example, if I wanted a PBN domain of RD 10-20 I would expect to pay $10-20 or a RD 100 I would expect to pay in the hundreds. Are the prices similar for guest posting?

    Thanks

    Not at all. You can't compare PBN with real sites. Real site means they are updated with some solid content, have traffic flow and more. That's why you are trying to reach them. Decent price I paid so far around $30-$100 for RD 15+ with DA 10-20. First, i try to convince them with the reciprocal offer. They can guest post at my website if they want. Or else I will pay. But you will get some offer asking $500-1000 for a link who has no idea for what they are charging.

    Most "manual outreach" gigs I've seen so far are just dressed up PBN shits.

    I would suggest coming up with a persuasive template and doing it yourself. Or come up with a few very good articles and get to submitting to high authority sites. If you can write reasonably well, spending a few hours to write a good article that relates both your site and be of interest to the target site can work surprisingly well. Of course, there are always a few cunts that know what you're doing and will either decline or ask for money. Both are still significantly cheaper than paying for an "outreach" from a third party though.

    From what I've seen in my niche, it ranges from $100 to $500 per post. The most expensive ones are product reviews and giveaways.

    Completely agreed. If you can come up with a solid content which is shareable and gain the attraction, you might not spend money for your links.

    dont be foolowed by tf garbage here.
    but in my country, prices correlate nicely to the ahrefs DR stats.
    eg, DR50 = aprox 100 - 300 € for 1 article per year.
    for DR 30, you can get them around 30 - 50 €.

    some bloggers also sell themself short, cause they use old 1998 style design and think their page sucks. well, it doesnt and you can get cheaper blogposts for way less money.

    An outreach service offered me $90 to post on my site. When I asked them to do outreach for me, they wanted to charge $350 per post. I have since resorted to doing my own outreach and writing. You just need to write something that is of value. Webmasters are usually happy to post it for you :)

    I have done the same. Most of these "outreach" people are just middlemen who charge a markup on something the webmaster will do anyway. I will be coming up with a template I can bribe authors with in the near future, that'll probably work when its too much of a stretch to get a manual link.

    I am pretty surprised at how fucking dumb some of them are though. I've offered up to $500 for a link which would be free money basically, especially when they freely link to my competitors (these are very specific links which were most likely not asked for). Most of the time I never hear back from them, but I'm sure if I kept poking authors at high end websites Id find some that are willing to take the money.
