    Hello Everyone!
    I wanted to provide an extra boost in seo for my videos and I was wondering what are the pros and cons for using a cheap service like Fiverr to get my videos backlinked. Some of these services are offer HQ Backlinks for $5 and I am worried it could negatively effect my videos?
    Can someone please help explain it?
    Thank you!

    There's nothing on Fiverr in terms of backlinking I would suggest points direct to anything you value.

    From my experience, I've bought backlinks to videos from fiverr and I don't believe they had much effect in terms of ranking in YouTube.

    However, backlinks will help in terms of ranking your videos in Google... assuming the search results shows videos and the competition is low. YouTube is such a huge platform in terms of the amount of backlinks being sent in on a daily basis that this provides a buffer for you to get away with using spammy backlinks.

    None of my videos have been flagged, so I'd say you'd be safe doing it but it may not be worth the money if you are just looking to increase your YouTube rankings.

    Buying backlinks from Fiverr will not help your site. There is a reason the links are only $5 :) You are better off paying a bit extra for quality links.

    The pros:
    - You might rank.

    The cons:
    - You'll spend hours looking for a good gig
    - When you find said gig you'll need to give seller VERY specific instructions
    - 90% chance you'll still get shitty links
    - You might not rank
    - You might get a penalty

    I would say pros:cons ratio is 01:99 You should better avoid it for backlinks in my suggestion better look for comments providers on fiverr or something else.

    I'd avoid it. But you could try fivver and just stop using it for backlinks if it's crap (like many suspect it to be).

    As other members have suggested above, backlinks will definitely not help you rank higher.

    Focus on growing your view count naturally, and this will most certainly help you a lot more than either purchasing views or backlinks. Depending on your niche and the quality of the video, you might make something good out of it in the end.
