    What exactly are SAPE links? What are they used for? Are they dangerous for authority sites? Good for Churn and burn?

    To be honest i never used them - and when i considered it i learned that they aint as powerful as they once were. They are still likely to get your website penalized if you sent those links directly to your money site i think. So maybe sending them to a parasite would be wiser.

    Im no pro when it comes to sape thats, just what i think.

    SAPE is the name of a Russian company. The links are considered very black hat. Yes they're dangerous for money sites. Yes they can be used for churn n burn projects.

    Can someone verify, they're basically hacked sites with your link inserted?

    They aren't necessarilly hacked, but here and there they are.

    Some people still swear on them and unless you really really really know what you are doing, I wouldn't touch them.

    I had been using them for 2 years and in the past year I could never make them work. So as you see, I apparently have no idea what I am doing with Sape either, so you should really avoid this type of links.

    I still think they don't do shit lately. Non contextual links, off topic niche relevancy, bad words in neighbourhood. More trouble than it's worth. Focus on other types of links, especially if you are new. These is no magic ranking stuff.

    Literally saw 37 client sites I was using them on, as well as some of my own C&B case studies like this one https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/case-study-gsa-directly-on-one-page-affiliate-offers.852187/ drop the week Penguin 4.0 came out. Unless someone proves me wrong there was a HUGE devaluation of noncontextual links that came with the bird.

    I once had invested 6 months on white hat link building ($1200) and dropped some SAPE links ($200) on the 7th month. BOOM! The stable ranking was now gone. Site got deindexed. So if you don't know what you're doing, don't. Learn from my mistake.

    Most people as far as I know use them for ranking their doorways or at least it was like that back in the days.
    They create a "website" full of shitty spun content (one keyword = one page) that directs user to an affiliate link or whatever and order links to those pages.
    Needless to say it is exactly "Churn and burn" method and I won't ever point such links to a money site.
    Most are. I don't imagine any sane webmaster who shall sell that type of links from his pages.

    SAPE were super effective several years back, they can work now but you need to be buying the good links.

    Use them on your own churn & burn sites and you'll be able to monitor the results.

    Don't risk clients sites though, especially if you're having to ask what they are.

    How about niche Relevant SAPE links? Also watching anchor ratios? Is it possible to ride the lightning? Obviously very difficult not to just get deindexed, with loads of anecdotes in this thread.

    Lol I'm still learning how to rank my own sites, no clients.

    Focus on trends of the future, not trends of the past. SAPE worked well several years ago, not it's literally dead.
    Waste of money in my opinion.

    Hi there,
    SAPE is a russion network - it is not owned by single owner or partners. It is a system that has access to millions of sites connected, where you can use it by buying a license or buying from those who got license, It just generates automated back links to wherever you want with all your requirements.

    It is being used as tier 2 and tier 3 links to strengthen them up. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND this using as direct links to your money sites, but can be used for churn and burn sites as it is a black hat method.
    Thanks

    You need to test sape to see if it works for your or not. Dont expect much from it in first attempt.

    You can't just rely on Sapes own filters, if you go in and blindly buy links, you are asking for trouble. Even the metrics that they show within the Sape control panel cannot be trusted. What I do is scrape all possible links based on my criteria e.g. English sites, low OBL, within my price range. I get a few thousand of matching links, then I throw them through my own metrics checker and store them in my DB. This gives me current metrics and an easy way to select sites which match my clients requirements.
    It is still really powerful, even with a modest package, we have ranked high comp, high value keywords for clients

    In my experience niche related links are less important, we used to go after links on niche related sites but realised once the metrics are good, the ranking will come. We tested niche related and non-niche related - we actually found non-niche related worked best, my guess is that with niche related you are restricting the number of target sites and so you have more sites to choose from and better metrics for non-niche sites. For my own sites, I ignore the niche of the target site. I do have filters to exclude the obvious sites - porn, viagra etc.

    SAPE links are not so safe to use in money site, it will affect the site well.Don't use those links on money sites directly, use it on tier 2 or tier 3 sites.
