Hi all respected members.
I saw a post on FB someone selling hardlink from DA89 site I asked him that is it backlinks from comment or from post. He replied it's not backlinks it's hardlink.
So I just want you guys to explain me what hardlink actually means in SEO ?
 
Probably a new way of marketing, selling links from high authority sites. "Hard link" you can't get it easily :)
 
Would love to see a transcript of your chat with him. Not sure if he's trying to scam you or he's just dumb. Probably both.
 
Links that are made by hard men that's done time. Like Charlie Floate done bird for touching kids.
 
I never liked the term "hardlink" because different people seem to have a different meaning for the word.

For some reason you see the word hardlink in the adult niches the most. And no, not because of the word "hard" in there!

Some people define a hardlink as one that appears on only one page (usually the home page), and NOT in the footer or sidebar. It's a link that is NOT sitewide. Back in the day people used to want sitewide links (I get a bunch of links for the cost of one link!), but nowadays most people feel Google doesn't like sitewide links (it's too obvious that it's paid for - an ad).

Some people define a hardlink as a link that goes directly to the target site (as most links do). In other words, a hardlink does not use a redirection script (like affiliate links or links from some web 2.0 sites like tumbler).

I'm sure there are other ways people think of a hardlink, but those are the two I've heard about.

thankyou for clear point of view one thing i got from this conversation that word hardlink doesnt have any accurate meaning or existence but this word is used by some extra meaning probably someone's perspective.
 
Google has encouraged people to build links in order to rank well. But in the wake of the Google penguin update, it’s become painfully clear to me how many people have failed to understand the inherent quality links part of that link building message. Consider this a wake-up call. Yes, you want links, but links that are hard to get, that take effort to obtain, that you’ve somehow earned, not “easy links.”
