    When I build pbns or buy links I always prefer to get homepage links of course because they have all the juice. I am wondering now if it might look too unnatural to have too many home page links. Any experiences with a penalty due to "too many home page links"??

    Can't speak from experience about a penalty, but it's always a good idea to add in some diversity. I see 'ryabinchik' offers a package of contextual links and 'aka Sam' has recently come out with an anchor text correction package. Both of these would be worth looking at if you're concerned about your current link profile.

    Think about it this way: how many other websites the size of your website have a backlink profile filled with the same homepage backlinks? Make sure you vary your backlinks to avoid suspicion.

    I never got penalized but I think it would be a red flag if all your links come from homepage. What I usually do is I create homepage links from my personal private network and the I also buy 1-2 services that gives you blog links (so your link appears on homepage but later goes to internal pages)

    Try to point some of those links towards your site's inner pages for diversity.
