    Hey,

    I would like to know some things about (buying) backlinks.


    • If there are backlink (hardlink) offers and one has an Alexa rank <100k/PR1 and another Alexa rank >1Mio but PR4. Which one would you prefer? Same conditions for each link of course.

    • Is there a rule of thumb how much you pay per hardlink regarding Alexa rank or PR?

    • Another thing that makes me confused is that some sites with PR3 or even better have just few or no backlinks to their sites. How is that possible?

    • If I exchange hardlinks with others: Has it bad effects to my page if I link to them on each of my pages (100k+) or does it not matter if I link to them just on one page or on all?

    Thanks in advance!!

    - I would pick the one with <100k alexa ranking and PR1, of course as long as the traffic/ranking is not gamed. To better learn about the value of a backlink check Domain Authority, Page Authority (SEOmoz/Opensiteexplorer metrics), Trust Flow and Citation Flow (MajesticSEO metrics).

    - I don't have standard prices but I usually get high quality backlinks for reasonable prices.

    - It's either a domain with some legit high PR backlinks or a domain with some fake PR tactics.

    - I don't do link exchange as part of SEO campaign since 2007, I don't recommend it either.

    For better SEO knowdlege search for SEO guides or read http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/478506-search-engine-optimization-blueprint-2012-complete-guide-ranking-website-google.html and http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/507131-search-engine-optimization-2013-website-relevancy-content-what-means-good-backlink-search-engine-optimization-blueprint.html

    Hey Kimi, thanks for your response - I will read your suggestions.

    I guess it isn't useful to make deals with such websites?

    I see lots of webmasters trading with (reciprocal) hardlinks, are they all wrong? Isn't it recommended for new websites? I did eight link exchanges for my page and my alexa rank went from 1,3Mio to 700k within 1 month and traffic also increased.

    Would like to hear some opinion about that!
