lol that example is not a hacked link. You can buy these. They insert them onto old articles.

That's why I love read on Mediums, occasionally there would be articles like this, this is really what SEO article should be like, I hope more threads like this in the coming future from BHW and other sources.

Good share.

I haven't, but I guess they do provide reports.

Example 1: https://www.nevadabusiness.com/2018/04/marketing-web-experts-re-elected-to-ncet-board/

"McClellan, marketing projects specialist at RSCVA, was re-elected as NCET’s vice president of social media.

Her 13 years of experience in marketing positions include work as an media and SEO manager, in charge of buying PBN links (links to DFYlinks.com/pbn-packages/) and maintaining the social media presence, interactive media business partner with Renown Health and as an online marketing coordinator with Atlantis Casino Resort Spa."
.

*incharge of buying PBN links* -> Lmao this is too epic of a niche edits

I've had a few clients lose their domain to a squatter after forgetting to renew it. The squatter will just rip the old website (from Wayback Machine) and put it back online on their own server, then strategically (or not) place their affiliate links throughout the site or build backlinks as seen here.

No hackers involved here. They're just opportunists.

Why do you know that those are hacked links?

The author of the post had mentioned in a comment that he emailed a couple of site owners just to be sure that they were indeed hacked links, and he got the replies below:

" 1. "Thanks very much for alerting us to this link. We removed it and took some extra security measures."

2. "oops! thanks for the heads up, there's a few of these lying around :)" "

I think quite a few shady "niche edit" providers DO provide hacked links, and make gullible buyers believe they're a result of outreach. Just last week or so I saw a FB post of one 'niche edit' provider bashing another saying they're supplying hacked links.

Ask yourself this question: would they be able to boast of things like "100,000 sites in our inventory" if they weren't hacked? And why would extremely large magazines, company blogs (some with thousands of employees globally), philanthropic organisations and even news sites decide to ruin the context and meaning of their paragraphs to edit a sentence and accommodate a link to a questionable site, all for a measly $80-150?

Yeah but you do get unscrupulous authors who can sell links on their old posts on sites, who have the authority to modify their posts without the company knowing. Anyway, maybe this is different. Good study nonetheless.

lol they are not hacked links :p :p . this is other stuff :D


Affiliate sites that have been built on STRONG AUTHORITY auction domains +2K RDs, Always crushing it. It works like a charm and for me it's the best way to invest your money if you wanna build a new site.

Hacked links and Old post edit links are different I think. However a nice case study. who knows he used both scenarios?

Check my previous reply:

To be frank sometimes webmasters/freelancer/co-workers make deals without telling the original owner of websites to make extra money.

The key here is "sometimes", because rest of the time the links seem to be placed without the knowledge of anyone involved with the respective websites.

Keep outing these sites and eventually, Google will block all the loopholes they use.
