Thinking of using SAPE links through buffer sites. Good idea?

    I have an Amazon affiliate whose homepage main keyword has hit number 1 mostly due to SAPE links. I want to drive my subpages (around 50) to the top or near the top of Google for their respective keywords. The quickest way, of course, is just to blast the subpages with SAPE links. However, I don't want to do this anymore due to potential Google penalties.

    I guess I have the following questions, and if anyone is knowledgeable about this, I'd really appreciate it. Since SAPE links worked well for me before, I intend to use them again, but this time through buffer sites in the form of Web 2.0s:


    1. Would blasting existing Web 2.0s linked to the homepage a good idea? My idea is the homepage's juice would then transfer to my subpages. However, this would make my subpages thrice removed from the SAPE's original link: SAPE link --> Web 2.0 --> Homepage --> Subpage.
    2. Build more Web 2.0s to Subpages and diversify the backlinking profiles with blog comments. Hence: SAPE link --> Web 2.0 --> Subpage. This would be better than option 1, right? But the extra Web2.0 backlinks could earn a penalty, right?
    3. Is building Web 2.0s (Wordpress, Tumblr, etc.) to your money site totally safe these days? I don't plan to build too many--maybe 5 per subpage that has a high-linking keyword.
    4. Do buffer sites completely remove the chance of Google penalties these days? That is, if my SAPE links get deindexed, only my Web2.0 buffer sites will get penalized, right, not my money site?

    Sorry for the long message, but I'm really curious about this. Hope someone can help. Thanks a bunch!

    If you know how to properly filter SAPE, you can use it as Tier 1 without any problems. I have a guy who is building SAPE to my sites for months and none of sites got penalized! It only depends do you filter SAPE properly or not.

    No they don't. I asked one of the top SAPE sellers on BHW and he honestly told me that he can't guarantee (even with buffer sites) for my site not to be penalized...

    I think there is always a risk with sape no matter how you do it.

    Although there are some guys on here who have been utilizing sape for quite a while without any issues.

    Here is a trick, find the best dof0ll0w links that point to your domain, maybe a review site or whatever. Buy SAPE links to those pages to filter PR to your site. Keep a close eye on those links though so you ensure they stay up. Instead of making crappy web 2.0 buffers use site with real value.

    I would point the SAPE links to a PBN, which links to the page I want to rank. If you want to make it as safe as possible use a legit site as a PBN. I often buy aged domains from GoDaddy that used to be a real site in my niche. Then rebuild it thru archive.org. I like to backlink them with another PBN.

    This way you have a HTML site (not Wordpress like 99% of PBN's) that will link to your site. Point the SAPE links at it. This way you can control the OBL's. With WEB 2.0's, you often get a lot of lost link juice (to many OBL's or internal links).

    The words Sape and safe should not be used in the same sentance without the words ARE NOT in between them.

    Thanks for the great replies. Seems nothing is safe, even when using buffer sites! Are we all in agreement on this point? ;)

    There's a risk with every type of link building. SAPE does work though, just need to know the risks and how to reduce the overall risk profile.

    Sape is a tool, it can be used wisely or used badly.
    Used in the correct way its extremely powerful whether direct to the site or through a buffer

    Hi, this is great advice! However, my site really is just a crappy Amazon affiliate site. I haven't received any review sites. Where can I put up my URL besides Web2.0's and still be safe? All I know is blog comments are safe, but again, from what I've read, with blog comments, there are so many links on each page, if I were to run SAPE links through those pages, most of their power would be diluted. Is there any ******** URLs where my link would be one of the few on the page? I don't care if the pages have juice or not as long as I can run my SAPE through them and the limited number of outgoing links means a lot of the SAPES' juice would pass through to my money site. Thanks!

    I reckon it's wise to use SAPE links on your PBN sites, otherwise the risk is too high.

    What happened to me is one of my competitors spammed my website with low-quality links, which made Google check my website and see the sape links, I got a manual penalty

    Isn't pointing dangerous links at someone else's site sort of a dick move? If I owned the other site linking to his, I would be pissed.
