Why Bother with High PR links that Fall Off the Home Page?

    Other than churn and burn sites for which you want short term ranking, is there a "logical" reason to use high pr homepage links that disappear in "X" amount of time (usually like 30 days on most services)? I am baffled at the prices some people are charging for these links that very quickly go from PR4 or PR5 to PR0. Of course the PA and DA change as well when it falls of the main page and is just left on it's own.

    So WTF is the rational behind these links IF you have a site that you want to keep up longer than a few months?

    Some bsts sell home page permanent links like niche monsters. I suggest you go with these types of links rather than links that roll off. Even when a link rolls of a homepage it still has some link juice.

    ... when it falls to inner pages, you just boost it with quality web 2.0 and blog comments and you have a powerful backlink pointing to your website.

    Like thinktank1 stated, links that roll off the homepage still help your site.

    To provide a service, the network owners have to make some money. Pricing for links these days is more costly because networks have to be more sophisticated to be of value. Different IPs, CMS, article quality and post distribution are important and cost the network owner more money. But let's say that all they did was offer homepage links. At what point would the site lose its worth? 50 homepage links? 100? Once the site loses its value or becomes so oversold that the homepage links carry no SEO weight, what incentive does a network owner have to keep it running?

    Even if you have a site you want to rank long-term, links that roll off the homepage will still help providing that the owner of the network keeps the site alive. Making money is why people build networks and making even more money is why they maintain them. Providing that they are able to do this, the links you get will have long-term value. But if they just load up the homepages with links and leave the sites to die, their value to you as a buyer will be greatly reduced in the long run IMO. Basically it is in your best interest as a buyer to get links in networks that have good long-term strategies to make money from their sites. It means they plan on being around for a while. :)

    The simple answer is the backlinks will still carry enough power to give you decent rankings. Is not that you'll order 5 backlinks, enjoy they're power for 30 days and then be like before ordering. Depending on the backlink type and site structure, the page can gain PR, PA as time runs.

    If we're talking about the average low quality blog network then you're pretty right with the is just left on it's own part. My above point will only be valid if the site has a decent structure, smart interlinking and is built by someone that knows how it's done, not by the average 6-months experienced SEO guy.

    Consider buying permanent homepage backlinks if you have the right budget... and if you find good providers.

    If you're buying links from someone that sells publicly, then you're probably ranking and banking. In which case you should just be trying to rank well, make your money, then eventually the network gets hit like any other public network. But if the links are great while theyre on the home page, then you just keep renewing them. If they arent permanent home page links then I doubt they're too expensive.

    Long story short, you get what you pay for.

    Only PA changes if it falls off the first page, DA doesn't. So basically you have a link from domain.com, which has a DA of X to XX.
