@Ozzyig knocking out great shares as usual. ;)
Thanks bud!
I appreciate you sharing your knowledge
Always happy to help.
I get the sense you've been scammed a handfull of times in this forum - I have a feeling it was back in the "GAGA" Times ..... am I right? OH and sorry to hear about the deadbeat that just skipped out on renewing his domains (I"m assuming that's another area you got slighted) -

It's good of you to low-key warn the newbies about those types of dangers proactively, giving other people a fighting chance to not get scammed. Most people are entirely too selfish and self centered to think on that level.. bravo ... Karma will reward you for this at 3x whatever it is that you lost.... And I don't mean Reddit Karma lol (although maybe, you never know)
I've been scammed once, but the Gaga times is after seeing other people waste a lot of money on them.

I did lose links after the sites weren't renewed which really did suck.

Thank you for the kind words, and I'm always happy to get Reddit karma haha.
Bookmarked this page my history
Enjoy

So now we’re into a New Year, there will undoubtedly be a large number of new members combing through BHW looking for as much information as possible. I thought it would be helpful to give a brief run down of each kind of link so that members know what they’re signing up for when they buy them.

Web 2.0 links.

These are the type of links that people are most aware of. They are built on free platforms such as Wordpress.com, Weebly etc. They’re no where near as powerful as they once were, but they do still have their place in, especially when they’re used as parasites. These can be a great way for people to start making some money online to put into other types of links. If you’re buying these, make sure that the content isn’t spun.

Private Blog Networks (PBNs).

PBNs are the other kind of link that the majority of people have heard about. When the networks are built correctly, they can be powerful assets. When they’re built wrongly, and have stupid names attached to their package that are related to pop superstars, it can cause a world of pain for a website. When purchasing any form of PBN package on BHW, always look for reviews from respected members. If a service has a lot of reviews from Newbies that have only made comments on that services thread, the review should be taken with a pinch of salt.

It's also important to point out that not all PBNs are actually private. If the seller sends you a list of the sites that are on offer, walk away. This is a public blog network instead. You could effectively be paying top dollar for what is effectively, a Big Mac. Don’t waste your money, your time, or your sites growth on these awful public links, it really isn’t worth it. Undoubtedly, your site will get hit by Google, and the only one that has gained from this is the person running the service.

If it is a one time payment for a PBN link, ask what the guarantee is as well for how long the links will be live for. There have been instances in the past on BHW that PBNs were set up, the seller took a load of cash in and then buggered off without renewing the domains for the next year. This is a sure fire way to lose money, and rankings. Much like Web 2.0s, make sure that the content you’re buying isn’t spun garbage.



Niche Edits/Curated Links

These go by different names, but they are the same overall. With a niche edit backlink, a backlink is placed for your site on an established article on a quality website. The benefit of this is that the page is already indexed and the site will have a strong backlink portfolio for it. This ideally will add more power to the backlink that you have purchased.

Since the link is already put onto a pre-established article, it doesn’t look suspicious to Google that this has taken place. In fact, when I’m building Web 2.0s, I like to leave the articles to simmer for a few months before adding links into them back to my sites. Also, unlike some PBN sellers that may not re-register their domains, this is very unlikely to happen with links on Niche Edit sites. The reason for this is that the site is someone’s wage with the affiliate revenue they’re getting from it, so they’re always going to renew the domain when the time comes.

Forum Links

I’m still a fan of forum backlinks when they’re done correctly. It can take a considerable amount of time to pick and choose the right topics to post in, but if done correctly it can bring in a considerable amount of traffic to your site. The reason why a lot of people don’t focus on forum links is that because they’re often Nofollow and they take to long to set up. However, with the right strategy, it can be easy to rank a forum post for a small sum of money. It’s also important to note that Nofollow links have their place in any backlink profile. Wikipedia is Nofollow and these links are pretty damn strong.

Reddit/Quora links

Reddit and Quora are absolute monsters when it comes to traffic, but they’re both highly regulated when it comes to spam and link placement. With Reddit especially, I’ve been using it for years as not only a backlink resource, but also as a way to drive traffic directly to a CPA offer. It takes time and commitment, but having links on these platforms is golden.

Whilst Quora links are Nofollow, it is still possible to get quality, do-follow links from Reddit. I’d be wary of cheap Reddit links. These are usually made from spam accounts and have gibberish text surrounding them. That’s why I prefer to build my own. For low competition keywords, Reddit is a great way to boost your sites ranking. However, don’t have a lot of Reddit pages pointing to the same page on your site. This just looks unnatural and screams that you’re trying to scam Google.

Social Shares

Whilst it’s nice to have a site shared on Facebook, Twitter etc, I’ve never really found that these have pushed the needle at all. It does make the page look more authentic, but there’s also the trouble that a lot of social signal sellers are using the same account for thousands of orders. It just looks spammy and won’t really help you in the long run.

GSA Links

GSA links are a great way to power up your Web 2.0s, as well as Reddit links and forum links. They are pretty damn spammy, so never point these towards legitimate websites that you’ve purchased links from, that’s just a dick move. GSA links are always my go to when I’m wanting to build some links in house for one of my sites. What works for me is: GSA Links > Reddit Page > Money site. It really adds a nice boost in the rankings. Since sites like Reddit are so well established, it can handle this level of spam. In the case of powering up forum links I do: GSA Links > Reddit Page > Forum Page >Money site.


Please don't send any PMs asking questions about these links, ask them in the thread instead so that everyone can benefit from it.
Great post. Thanks a lot.

One question.

Whn you say Reddit page you mean a reddit post in a subreddit or you mean you create your own subreddit?

Great share, thanks!

I don't understand the forum backlinks. Can you briefly explain them in a sentence or two?

Thanks again!

Thanks for the share.

On the Reddit topic, do you need to get a ton of upvotes on your post? I'm great on getting Reddit upvotes but I'm sure it needs to be natural otherwise it'll just get downvoted by the general public.

I usually just do it in subreddits I have made previously and grown them a bit. Then I put my link in the sidebar, or make a post to get a nofollow link for it.
Great share, thanks!

Sure, it's finding a relevant topic on a forum, and then putting in a few posts onto the topic before adding one that has your link in it.

I by and large only post links in the subreddits I own.

I am the only one who wishes that he'd have links to 'trustworthy' backlink sellers?
Thanks for the thread man! Good Insight, that.

Sorry, I just seen this.
Personally I don't build any backlinks to a site where I've got niche edits from. Just a personal preference but I don't feel it's right to build links to a site that's not mine. By all means build Reddit links to them if they're high quality, but I'd refrain from building any other kind of links to them.
