    Hi all

    I've been running a specific website since 2013. I used to rank #1 for my money terms and now im sitting between 10-13.

    My competitors most recent links are all poor quality PBN or bought links.

    I've never bought links before - but I can see my competitors are all benefiting (ranking between 3rd-6th) and all their most recent links are clearly paid/bought links.

    I don't want to go to fiver and buy a crappy project, or buy a a package from BHW that is going to get my site deindexed within days.

    As ive never bought links before - im looking for advice on where to start.

    Thanks

    Do yourself a favor and don't start from your PMs !!
    Maybe start with some Web 2.0s links.

    At the end of the day it's all about how much you want to spend.

    Do you want 100 crappy $1 back links or rather buy 2x $50 good links ?

    See the smiley face there? Or course Google cares about links. The problem is not all links are good and many can be toxic towards your efforts at ranking higher. I think it's always a better idea to learn a little more about SEO before buying links. At least then, you'll have a better idea of what to avoid.

    Don't follow suit with poor quality PBNs. And don't let freelancers who message you take the reigns. Learn more about SEO then take a high quality approach without cutting the corners your competition is. If they are building sloppy they will get slapped eventually and you have the chance to start clean.

    You should build web2.0 tiers to start with and see how things work.
