    See title.

    What factors do you take into account when buying expensive individual links?

    And on a related note, what are the most expensive individual backlinks you've sold?

    There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's MasterCard.

    12K for a customer, well, not really just a link, feature with a link in a popular magazine and we didn't pay it, but only charged the time to make the deal. Regarding the buzz on social media it created and the additional links that followed for free, it was well worth the money.

    £199 - for botw submission.

    You have been scammed fastfire667. I'm paying only $15 for Huff posts.

    I look at the neighborhood, is it active, good engagement. Besides being a good property, with solid backlinks, is it actually active, do people engage in it. I'll pay more for a no-follow link that will get me people toy site than for a top tier link that will simply increase my ranking.

    Sorry guys, if I share that info you know what will happen - the contributor will receive few hundred orders and is very likely to be banned from Huff.
    Just use G search and I'm sure you will find much cheaper offers for Huff posts.

    I'm not talking rubbish Hawkster, the services you see everywhere - "guest post of Huff, Engadget, Tech.co..." can be found much much cheaper. Most guys are just resellers. Also you will not get a post from real journalist but from a contributor.

    As Far as I Know Huff Post is too expensive ..... maybe he is your friend or someone you know and he gives you a high favor for that.

    I have few Questions
    1. Are those post from contributor account or from the editorial account?
    2. Are your Huff post links indexed?
    3. Are those Links Stay there for permanent or just removed after some time?
