Looking to buy quality backlinks for cheap?

It’s no secret that links are a major ranking factor for search engines. However, building high-quality links yourself can be expensive and time-consuming. Not to mention, it can be difficult to know if you’re doing things the right way.

A lot of people think that the only way to get good links is by doing all the work themselves. Especially new SEOs who are trying to impress their first client! But it certainly doesn’t have to be that way.

Procuring cheap, high-quality backlinks is an easy and affordable way to get the links you and your clients deserve, without the hassle of creating them yourself. We offer a variety of packages that fit any budget, and our team of experts follows industry best practices so you can be sure that you’re buying backlinks that are safe and effective.

Although not something talked about in a lot of big SEO publications, you can be rest assured knowing that buying high-quality backlinks is a normal process in link building strategies and common practice in an SEO campaign. Backlinks are a major ranking factor for search engines, after all.

This article will guide you through the link buying process, and address some common safety concerns when purchasing links from us, to show you that we care about you or your client’s reputation with Google and other search engines.

Is it safe to buy backlinks?

Purchasing links can be completely safe when you buy backlinks from an SEO agency that follows industry best practices. The way that we run our networks and link building services ensures the maximum amount of privacy and safety possible.

While it’s true that buying backlinks breaks Google’s TOS, and is therefore considered a black hat activity, it’s incredibly difficult for Google and other search engines to prove without a doubt that someone is buying backlinks – unless the link building service provider is naïve or desperate enough to freely and publicly show lists of the sites they are selling links on (which we do not).

It can also be unsafe to buy low quality links (spam), from PBN link vendors who have no business being in the PBN business in the first place (footprint issues), or don’t know how to build links for SEO, and from link vendors who are selling links to spammy client sites from their networks (e.g. link schemes).

We do not sell anything close to resembling spam links, our PBN division is headed by Nick Altimore who has built a solid reputation for himself in the community, and we vet every client’s site before we link to them.

Which backlinks are safe?

People who are new to SEO tend to believe that, if you want to reduce risk as much as possible, you should only look for “white hat” backlink sources. This basically means the backlinks are created without the use of manipulative or sneaky methods that may harm your site’s rankings if detected.

Some examples of these white hat backlinks include citations, forum profiles, social media links, blog comments, and Web 2.0s. Niche directory links, such as from commerce-related sites, are included as well because they’re viewed as being natural for websites to receive.

But as we’ve previously stated, the notion that only white hat backlinks are safe and effective is a general misconception about link building that may limit site owners from achieving their true potential in the SERPs.

A good rule of thumb is that backlinks are safe if they come from trustworthy, natural websites and if they are deployed in intelligent and natural ways.

Some backlinks might come from sources that don’t seem to have a natural purpose, other than to manipulate search engines, but there are other factors surrounding the creation of these backlinks which experienced link building specialists, like ourselves, know and understand how to use to our clients’ advantage.

High quality backlinks come from high quality sources and are used in intelligent and natural ways. You can learn more in our article on what makes a quality backlink.

Having said that, you can be sure of the safety when you buy backlinks on our end. We’ve taken our processes a step further to help protect our clients, by providing them with as much information as possible when using our tools.

Our SEO Blog features many informative posts and high quality content covering most of our products, services, and other advanced SEO topics.

What else can I do to ensure safe link building?

On each product page for the different types of links we sell, you will find a safety key near the top of the page that looks like this:

If you are unsure about a product or don’t have much link building experience with it, make sure to read this section as it will provide you with valuable information on how to use the product, its ‘hat’ rating (black hat, white hat, or gray hat), and any things you should do before using it to stay safe.

When you buy backlinks, you should also be sure to maintain a diverse link profile as well as try to emulate natural link velocity.

What is link diversity?

Backlink diversification is the idea that you will improve your site’s ranking by building links to your site using different anchor text and from different referring domains. It’s a very natural philosophy to link building that follows best practices and reduces the overall risk of penalties.

For example, building many links containing too many similar keywords (i.e. keyword stuffing) can look unnatural to Google.

Also, as we mentioned earlier, receiving too many low-quality links from a few spammy networks is an obvious sign that you’re probably not practicing link diversity (even if it’s not your fault).

Basically, having too many identical types of sites (or types of backlinks) pointing to your targets can trigger an unnatural link warning to search engine algorithms (which are always getting smarter). Even having too many do-follow links relative to no-follow links can be a bad thing.

As another example, take one of the most powerful types of backlinks we offer: PBN links. These backlinks have a very specific footprint — being a contextual homepage link on a dedicated web blog. If you are only using PBN links, then you can expect to draw negative attention from web crawlers pretty quickly!

Having said that, it’s still possible to rank websites by emphasizing just one or a few types of backlinks (e.g. guest posts, social signals, and PBN links), but just because you may see positive traction in the SERPs doesn’t mean this strategy should be mistaken for a best practice.

In our opinion, best practices always lead to long-term success and not just short-term gains.

Lastly, another way to look at link diversity is that it’s like the engine oil that keeps your automobile running smoothly for a long time. Link diversity is essentially a strategy of using different backlink types with the goal of establishing a random footprint that Google algorithms are not able to easily track and penalize.

What is natural link velocity?

Another logical concern regarding link building is how many links per month is considered safe or best practice? This is because it’s an established fact in the SEO industry that there’s a positive correlation between a site’s quantity of inbound links and its organic search traffic (or performance in the SERPs).

Is adding more backlinks always a good thing? It’s a highly debated topic in the industry and can be a complicated issue for some (especially if you’re new to the link building process).

Basically speaking, the concept of link velocity refers to the speed of backlink growth for a page or domain. It’s the rate at which other referring domains / linking pages are pointing to your target(s).

Even though it’s proven that more backlinks leads to more organic traffic, not all backlinks are created equal, and sometimes this relationship does not hold true for some websites. In other words, quality is always more important than quantity.

In reality, nobody actually knows the optimal rate of backlink growth, which is why we prefer to keep it simple by following natural backlinking patterns that mimic the natural growth of real websites. Why? Because it makes sense and increases the longevity of the target site.

A natural growth pattern looks like a steadily increasing curve over a long period of time (i.e. avoiding unnatural-looking spikes). That’s what we prefer to see on our sites.

We also take into consideration the composition of backlinks types, including when and how many to use of each depending on the project.

If you aren’t familiar with these concepts, be sure to read our articles on link diversity and building healthy link profiles for more insight into these safe and effective best practices.

If you ever need any additional help or clarification, please feel free to contact us any time.

Why should I buy links from you instead of a competitor?

If you have ever tried buying backlinks, then you know by now that finding a solid provider for paid links can be difficult. We think our link building services stand out from other websites for the following reasons.

We value your safety.

Like previously mentioned above, we follow industry best practices and take every precaution necessary to ensure the safety and longevity of our networks and services as well as your sites’ continued dominance in the search engines without a Google penalty. We won’t build links or perform any activities on your sites that we wouldn’t do on our own assets.

Quality is paramount.

We are not interested in selling links of low-quality that don’t help our clients improve their search engine rankings because that would give us a bad reputation. We are SEOs first and foremost – we love what we do, we’re good at it, and we love quality links. So now we’re passing on our experience to clients by helping them buy high quality backlinks that complement their SEO strategy.

All of our SEO efforts are geared towards delivering quality.

I need to buy cheap backlinks! How much do your links cost?

We offer a wide variety of quality backlinks for different purposes, situations, and budgets.

Here are some of our popular backlink types:

  • High Authority Do Follow Links
  • Guest Posts
  • Diversity Links (complex, white-hat, high DA)
  • Bulk Backlinks
  • Niche Edits
  • Pillow Links (foundational backlinks to establish, insulate, and protect)
  • Social Profiles
  • Citations
  • PBN Links

Contextual links, dofollow links, natural backlinks, social media links, casino, and adult backlinks. You name it, we probably sell it! And we lower your overall backlinks cost by offering powerful bulk product packs as well. And remember, all of our backlinks are white-label and ready for you to use however you wish!

Our services page is your link building portal to all our backlinks and their respective product pages. When you visit a product page, you’ll see the pricing information near the end which will look something like this:

Here’s an example of one of our bulk pillow links packs. You can see that for a pack of 30 links, $69 is quite cheap. However this is just one type of link that we sell, and prices may be higher to buy links with more power behind them:

If you aren’t experienced with link building or link buying, you might think that this example is quite expensive. However, these outbound links pack a serious punch and are a major tool for pushing pages to the top of the Google SERP (Search Engine Results Page) and the search results of other search engines like Bing.

For the quality that we provide, our paid links are some of the cheapest on the market with many clients reselling them for 2x their cost or more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I see samples of backlinks before buying?

Some of our link building services have samples posted on their product pages. Others you will have to send us a message if you’d like to see a sample. We do not give out large amounts of samples in order to protect the privacy of our networks. We have to be careful while selling links!

What anchor text should I use?

If you need help with your order, you can try sending us a message. However, it’s not guaranteed that we will have the time to give you advice for your anchor text. If you need additional help with linking, you might be interested in our Managed Link Building Program.

Do you take care of indexing the links?

After you buy backlinks, the majority of them will index naturally and quickly (minus some lower tier foundational links). We don’t have indexing services at this time, and in general we are not fans of force-indexing links as it might look strange to a search engine. You can let the links index naturally over time or point tier 2 links at specific targets you’d like to index/power up immediately.

How long will it take for my purchased links to be finished?

Please refer to a specific product page to get more information on the turnaround time for that particular link building service.

I bought links. How long until I rank?

This is not something we can answer for you. There are many factors to consider when ranking in the search engines: your on-page, other high quality backlinks, niche, competition, etc. If you need additional help with links, you might consider applying for our MLB Program.

What is your refund policy?

All sales are final once work has started.

I just want to buy dofollow backlinks. Are they all dofollow?

The large majority of our links are dofollow text links minus some of the lower tier foundational links such as citations (some are dofollow, some aren’t). If you only want to buy dofollow links and are unsure, send us a message.
