Hey everyone, So I have a siloed affiliate site that I have been working on for about 8 months and I have been link building here and there, but I have mostly been focusing on long informative content, social sharing, and on-page SEO. The content my site has is much better than any of my competitors and same with my on-page. I have articles that I rank for in the top 3 without any backlinks and many in the 10-20 range as well. But, my backlink profile isn't the greatest. I bought some PBN's near the beginning, blog comments, paid for people to gather relevant guest blogging opportunities and some authority links that cost more. Some of the PBNs were pretty bad so I asked the webmasters to remove them just to be safe. Now my question is, how do I find a balance between quality vs. quantity? I understand that quality links will always out-do quantity but I don't understand the power of these links. For example, if I buy 5 high DA links from authority niche relevant sites will they be more worth it over finding package services at a lower price? The 5 links might cost me $800 vs. going to the marketplace and looking at link building packages that get me more links for $300. How does 1 link from a high DA relevant niche site compare to buying one of the better packages in the marketplace? How do 50 more expensive authority links compare to packages that would get me 500-600 links over time? I have a lot of solid content that is 2500+ words and I really want to push it to the next level with my link building. My competitors have tons of links but they are extremely spammy, and not good quality at all. They just have a lot. I'm just not sure how the best way to go about would be, I have money saved, just wanted to see the best way to approach this. Thank you.
